Publisher's Summary

Sixteen-year-old Kayla was born with the ability to move things with her mind - things like credit cards and buttons on cash registers - and she has become a master shoplifter. She steals to build up enough money for her and her mom to be able to flee if her dad finds them again…which would mean grave danger for them both. When she's caught stealing by a boy named Daniel - a boy with the ability to teleport - he needs her help and is willing to blackmail her to get it. Together, they embark on a quest to find and steal an ancient incantation, written on three indestructible stones and hidden millennia ago, all to rescue Daniel's kidnapped mother. But Kayla has no idea that this rescue mission will lead back to her own family - and to betrayals that she may not be able to forgive - or survive.

    Story
    "Promising but failed to engage."

    I mistakenly expected a story about superpowers and I liked the idea of blending that with more mythical quest sort of story.

    Chasing Power was actually based around magic and magical abilities and while I enjoyed the Deep South voodoo elements, I generally don’t enjoy books about witchcraft.

    The premise was still interesting though and the characters had lots of potential.

    Unfortunately, Kayla and the rest of the cast ultimately failed to engage me enough to get through the messy third act.

    Chasing Power descended into anti-climactic melodrama with inconsequential villains that left me checking the time remaining.

    Chasing Power wasn’t terrible but it will be forgettable.
