The 4400: Promises Broken
This is probably the best of all the 4400 novels done so far. It is absolutely crammed with action and suspense with nothing less than the survival of almost all of humanity at stake.
There are still three of the Marked around, and they have their own agenda, duping Dennis Ryland into helping them. Diana is having problems with Maia who has become thirteen years old, defiant and ends up a runaway of sorts. Kyle has become rather unbalanced what with his Cassie alter-ego. Marco has developed an ability to teleport, and Tom is still debating whether or not to take the promicin shot.
Jordan still has Promise City, but the U.S. government has decided that it doesn't like that arrangement, so it calls into action attack planes, ships, tanks, specially-developed troops and regular troops. They are set on a path of genocide against anyone with a promicin-caused special ability, and that includes killing men, women and children.
Jordan and his people try to defend their territory against almost over-whelming odds. At the same time, the Marked are carrying out their plan which would end up leaving maybe 98% or so of humanity quite dead. So Tom, Diana, Marco and the others have to figure out how to defend Promise City, keep themselves from being killed by U. S. government soldiers and, at the same time, figure out what the Marked are up to, where they are, and how to stop them.
Quite and handful and it makes for exciting reading.
It also is a good example of the concept of fearing what we don't understanding and, out of that fear, developing the desire to totally destroy that thing we don't understand.
