    It has been 20 years since the end of the war. The dictatorial Augurs - once thought of almost as gods - were overthrown and wiped out during the conflict, their much-feared powers mysteriously failing them. Those who had ruled under them, men and women with a lesser ability known as the Gift, avoided the Augurs' fate only by submitting themselves to the rebellion's Four Tenets.

    A great start for a Series (I want more)

    A very believable story involving youngsters (I'm 84 but my kids tell me I've never grown up)
    Some nice Hi Faluting Psuedo-Hi-Sci
