Listen, can you hear it? The explosive sequel to The Roar, now in paperback.

From a whisper . . . to a scream!

Telepathic twins Mika and Ellie are together again. But they're not free. If they're ever to liberate the brainwashed, microchipped army of children, they must pretend to play along with the tyrant Mal Gorman's maniacal plan - even as they mind-read all his evil thoughts. The cadaverous Gorman foresees a future in which he'll be forever young . . . that is, as long as the brother-sister fighter pilots fly over the wild side of The Wall and steal a top-secret age-reversing serum.

But Ellie and Mika have a master plan of their own. They can hear The Whisper. And it's telling them to lead their elite squadron of mutants in a revolt that will either save the world - or start a war.
