How far would you go to protect your superpower?

Sixteen-year old Mathilda Brandt just discovered hers: the ability to hear, control and even kill plant life. She will face a stark choice if and when the world learns about her new ability. Either she will have to put on the blue jumpsuit and become an officially sanctioned Empowered member of the Hero Council and follow any and all orders, or instead forswear ever using her power for any reason. Mat decides to keep her power a secret, but then she meets “rogue” Empowered people like herself who are creating a hidden sanctuary. She finally has a place where she can belong and use her power freely.

But if she wants a place to belong, first she must fight to save it.

Renegade is the free prequel to The Empowered series. Read to see what happened when Mat first discovered her superpower.

About the author

 A life-long resident of the beautiful Pacific Northwest, Dale Ivan Smith has his mother to thank for his love of science fiction and fantasy. When he was five, he glimpsed the cover of a paperback sci-fi novel she was reading and was immediately interested. (It had a giant radioactive spider on the cover.) When he was fifteen, she loaned him her collection of Edgar Rice Burroughs's Barsoom novels and he devoured them in short order. 

He got into trouble in grade school for sneaking off to the library during class, so naturally, he wound up working as a librarian for the Multnomah County Library system in Portland, Oregon. 

He's been writing fiction since he was a kid. He's had stories published in Perihelion Science Fiction, Everyday Fiction, 10Flash Quarterly, and on the Toasted Cake podcast. The Empowered is his first novel series, beginning with Empowered: Agent. 

When he isn't writing or reading fantasy and science fiction, he's playing board games, practicing yoga, and obeying his feline overlords

Read the book that started it all! An entertaining tale of adventure for the whole family.

Five children discover they have special powers. They are destined to save the world with these gifts.

First, they must learn how to use them.

Five cousins fall asleep in their grandparents' basement and share a dream. In it, they have special powers. Haley can leap across the room, Braden can move objects with his mind, Jack moves at super speed, and Jillian can make anything she wants appear before her eyes. What they don't know is they come from a long line of legendary warriors, Dream Fighters, and it is now their turn to join the fight.

Led by their uncle, they learn of a centuries old order of people with special abilities just like their own. In order to protect the real world, they must stop an invasion by the evil Sarlak and his army of Gorgons. With only their uncle, himself trapped in Jillian's doll, as a guide, they must master their newfound powers and stop this attack before it starts.

Along the way, they will discover their specific powers and understand how to use them, as well as control their fear and learn to work together, even when they really don't want to. Only hours before they were just normal kids playing video games in the basement. Now they wield the same powers they used in those games, only there are no save points or restarts. This time, everything counts and there are no second chances.

From sinister traps and magical trickery, they will fight off Sarlak's plan and somehow find a way to save the day. Whose power will lead them to victory? Which one of them will fall under Sarlak's spell? This first book in the Dream Fighter Chronicles tells the story of how it all began for these future heroes.

Discovery! is an action-packed and entertaining adventure for children from 8 to 88, offering readers young and old a chance to imagine the endless possibilities in the dream world. Intended to read like a video game, it will capture the imagination of all readers, pulling them into its magical world and leaving them on the edge of their seat.
