"This book should be required reading in every school system as a model of how to find your talent, a belief in oneself without falling victim to the downward, dismal spiral that can come from growing up in a dysfunctional atmosphere."
~ Paul Atreides, Las Vegas Review-Journal

Everyone has secrets… What if you didn’t know your own?

One young man with latent supernatural abilities plus one street gang hell-bent on recruiting him equals…IA: Initiate.

The most important thing in the world to thirteen-year-old orphan “Naz” Andersen is keeping his little sister safe from the streets of a Chicago/Detroit-like urban ghetto known as the Exclave. Naz tries to stay out of the way at his foster parents' home, but he walks in his sleep. He is unable to keep the fact that he hears voices from his therapist. He attempts to go unnoticed at school and in the streets of the Exclave but attracts the attention of friends and bullies alike.

Naz is ordinary, or so he thinks. He harbors a secret of which he is unaware. A seemingly random act of gang violence propels Naz on a path that leads to discoveries about his supernatural abilities, abilities that will ultimately decide whether he lives or dies. Now he must navigate his turbulent surroundings and face the full force of the world around him. The only way he can survive is to discover the supernatural world within.
