The Energy Room (The Elementum Trinity Book 1)
Styna Lane, author
Angela Dawson lives in a tiny apartment on the tenth floor, with white walls, a window full of lies, and a hidden camera in the corner of the ceiling. All the coffee and pancakes in the world couldn't make her choose her current residence over a soggy cardboard box in the back of a flea-infested alley. Of course, she doesn't have that option. Angie has been raised in the captivity of The Facility for as long as she can remember. Though she is able to manipulate elements, The Facility took measures, after her first failed escape attempt, to prevent the use of her abilities outside of testing: Electro-Cuffs. They are as painful and deterring as the name suggests, and the ever-present threat of electrocution ensures that Angie's power is anything other than her own. Now, almost eighteen years old and with no hope of escape, Angie has surrendered to her life of testing, poking, and prodding within the thirty-floor, underground prison. That is, until a suspicious young psychologist is hired to crack open her most protected secret; the locations of the five others like herself, to whom she is connected in her dreams. Faced with decisions based on trust, love, deceit, and breakfast foods, Angie's transformation into an adult—and into a human being—is far more extraordinary than she could have ever imagined within the suffocating walls that raised her.
