Deviants Publisher's Summary

The end of the world has come and gone. The Earth is buried in asteroid dust that mutates human DNA, and 16-year-old orphan Glory and her brother are among those affected. Glory’s got a secret: once she loses control of her emotions, the intensity of her gaze can kill. If her Deviant ability is discovered, she’ll be expunged - kicked out of the dome to be tortured and killed by the sadistic, scab-covered Shredders who are addicted to the lethal dust covering the planet. But no matter how much Glory wants to be rid of her unique ability to kill with her emotions, no matter how much she wishes she could be with Cal, a newly turned spy for the authorities, Glory will protect her younger brother at all costs. After Glory’s brother is discovered, she’s determined to get him to safety, but escaping the domed city that’s been her entire world is no easy task...even for a Deviant.

    Haven Equals Safety. This slogan is emblazoned on the minds of every Haven employee. But for Glory, life inside Haven is anything but safe. Most of all, she must keep her special "Deviant" gift - the ability to kill with her eyes - a secret from those who would want to expunge her. Far from her family, Glory faces danger at every turn as she trains to be a Compliance Officer - to terminate her own kind - while she works undercover to rescue as many Deviants as she can.

    Glory is a Deviant. That is what she was always taught, growing up in the domed city of Haven. She has the power to kill with her gaze, but she's learned to control this power and use it only against the monstrous Shredders, who survive on the asteroid dust that mutated their DNA. Now living in a settlement Outside, Glory has the chance to embrace her "Gift" and reunite her remaining family. But she can't hide from the threat of Shredder attacks or the knowledge of what Management is doing to the employees of Haven.
