The Fourth Sage by Stefan Bolz
The world is controlled by corporations.
Fifteen-year-old Aries steals an hour of freedom for herself each night to roam her building via the air ducts. On one of her nightly excursions, she discovers something that has the power to change her fate and that of everyone around her. Following it, propels her straight into the path of the corporation’s ruthless security forces. As the hunt for her unravels and she flees ever deeper into the belly of her building, she stumbles across a group of gifted children—discarded and left to rot on an abandoned floor. The corporation’s most coveted secret now lies in their hands and they have no other choice than to reveal it. But their young lives have not prepared them for what is to come, for what they must do, and for what price they might have to pay.

“I did not want to put this book down. I read it at home, on my lunch break, in the school parking lot waiting to pick up my son, and anywhere I had moment. The story is unique, the setting original and interesting, and the characters are captivating. What resonated with me the most was how real the characters were. You won’t find perfectly pretty, perfectly courageous, perfectly strong, super-heroes here. What you will find are real heroes, overcoming their own fears, finding their gifts, and courageously doing what is right. The mix of suspense, adventure, and emotion hooked me immediately. Fantastic read.”
