This Doctor Who novel, written by Andrew Cartmel, was published by Virgin in February 1996.
Adolescence is a difficult time. Especially when you have the power to rule the world.
Creed is just an ordinary guy — as ordinary as you can be when you’re a secret agent working for the government. But his family is another matter. His youngest child seems able to read his mind. His oldest boy, ricky, may posssess a stranger and far more frightening power. And others seem interested in his ‘gifted’ children — sinister forces who see them as a resource to be exploited.
Around the world, the Doctor’s companions have been put in place, ready to act when the time is right. Old friends and enemies are gathering for a final confrontation that will shape the future of the globe — and the evolution of mankind.
