Let me tell you how it all started. At first there were four of us. Tracy could set anything on fire just by thinking about it, Guido had the gift of invisibility (sort of), Han could fold origami and bring it to life, and then there’s me. All I can do is make people like me. Even it it’s against their will! I hate that. How do I know who my real friends are? Or my enemies?
10-Year-old Andy, along with a few others his age, have magical gifts no one can explain. But when someone bombs his school and kidnaps him, he soon learns that the reason for all of this is his unusual gift. There are other gifted kids that have appeared in recent days and now there is a heated war between two sides to see who will have control over The Gifted.
Soon, he and three others are sent on a mission to a small island to investigate what has happened to the other kidnapped children, leading them into a world of magic and machines, and finally to a secret island training facility for others like them. In the end, it’s not what’s on the island that is the most dangerous, but what’s hidden underneath it!
