Synopses & Reviews
113 people are born with power beyond mortal man. Like unto gods, they wield life, death, terror, beauty, and what happens in the spaces in-between. Babylon Five's award winning creator, J. Michael Straczynski, brings to life the tale of 113 individuals with one thing in common, each was affected by a comet crashing into Pederson, Illinois before they were born. A comet that gave each extraordinary abilities. Raised by a very watchful government, one "Special" as they are called, discovers that the 113 are slowly being murdered, one by one. But who would have the powers or know how to do it, unless the killer comes from within their own group?
