To save the world, first they have to change it. A young adult adventure about six teen refugees who become supernatural superheroes.

Sam Kahu, 14, has been haunted all his life. First by his dead mother, then by his very alive and dangerous father. But now the young Maori has more pressing problems: his home has burned down and all his friends, and remaining family have vanished in mysterious circumstances.

The police have a lot of questions because his home was a large mansion on a remote island, 20 people are missing presumed dead, and the man who leased it - Dr Gennady Prosperov a Russian millionaire - has a history of dodgy financial trading, and a certain fascination for UFOs.

But two things are more interesting to Sam at the moment. The first is that the young police woman opposite him has no idea that her lover has dumped her and she is about to suffer terrible heartbreak, and the second is that it won't be long before they send agents to try and abduct him and extract the incredible secrets in his brain. And when they do he'll need all the friends he can get.

For although Sam is a teenager with family, bully, and girlfriend problems, he is also a Changel; one of six psychic teens, trained and equipped to find and safeguard the future leaders of our planet, in the world's most dangerous places.

Nor is Sam's life, riven by gangs and death, all that remarkable compared to the others. Tarik Gursoy is a Kurd, on the run from Ergenekon, the secretive Turkish deep state; Ashley Robinson's world was torn in half by Hurricane Katrina and the Sinaloa drugs cartel; Tahira Khadem had to flee Iran when her father was judicially murdered for being Baha'i; Scott Khumalo's blended family has escaped Zimbabwe; and Cam Tran, the Vietnamese boat child lost her mother to pirates in the South China Sea.

But it is not the obvious dangers of life on Earth which threaten Sam and his friends. For as they have searched the world they have discovered there are others here too. Others with different agendas, and they are decidedly not friendly.

A story about genetic discrimination and diversity including science fiction, supernatural, and real world elements Initiation is the just the first part of Changels Genesis - probably the largest book on Amazon at 666,212 words. Initiation is only the start of the Changels Genesis story, not a complete story in itself
