The Black Swan Files beginâ€¦
At certain moments in history, when several
impossible-to-predict events collide, they create whatâ€™s
known as a Black Swanâ€”an event that can change how we look
at science, technology, even our history. Jocelyn Albrecht
is one such Black Swan. Infected by the biotechnology her
parents sought to develop, she has become human enhancedâ€”an H+.
The accident that gave Jocelyn new powers also killed her
family. In their place she is raised at Camp Holliwell by
â€śher uncleâ€ťâ€”a government funded scientistâ€”and his league of
doctors who study and test Jocelyn daily in the hopes of
learning how to replicate her. The military has another goal
in mindâ€”to make her an asset.
After losing one family and the home where she belonged,
Jocelyn strives to keep her Holliwell family happy, as odd
as they might be. That is until she finds out the
truthâ€¦Uncle Laurence is using her as a guinea pig, her
brother and sister are still alive, and she doesnâ€™t have
long to live.
Now Jocelyn only cares about finding her real family. The
problemâ€”breaking out of a highly classified, military
facility before the next experiment kills her.
Seth Johnson had nothing left to lose when he volunteered to
go to Camp Holliwell. Now he would do anything to get out.
He wants to help Jocelyn escape, but with a target on both
of them, survival means he needs to look out for number one.
Georgie Washington is a straight A student and only child of
middle class Virginians. Raised on civil rights and the
horrors of American slavery, Georgie has a keen sense of
whatâ€™s right and whatâ€™s not. She secretly befriends Jocelyn,
and when no one else will help, commits to breaking her out
of Camp Holliwell.
Graeme Rochester knows something is wrong, he just hasnâ€™t
figured out the connection to his family. One thing he does
knowâ€”he would do anything to keep them safe. When the world
at Camp Holliwell threatens that safety, Graeme wants to
know why, even if it means a collision course with the
governmentâ€™s best-kept secret.
These four people, from vastly different worlds, learn the
true meaning of friendship and sacrifice when unpredictable
events once again collide, and create the possibility of
another Black Swan.
