"Sometimes things happen that can't be explained. I am one of those things. I'm not exactly human; I'm evolved into something else, but what that is I don't know. My parents were human, but they're long gone now...a trend that everyone in my life seems to have followed. I am nothing like you know. My beginning is not unlike yours, though my end is another story." Haunted by nightmares living deep within her past, Rose Hawthorne is anything but perfect, at least on the inside. Outside, her appearance tells a very different story. She is so beautiful that the mere sight of her face makes normal men mad. She is lethal too, just like all her friends. Five teenagers with superhuman powers should be dangerous, though. They are the only ones standing between the human race and an Infestation of mass proportions. Sometimes, when the world sets you apart, the only way to save it is to come together. This is their story. They are the Gifted.

Thriller. Love story. Social experiment. In Orpheus Chanson's world, geniuses and prodigies are no longer born or honed through hard work. Instead, procedures to induce Acquired Savant Abilities (ASAs) are now purchased by the privileged. And Orpheus's father holds the copyright to the ASA procedure. Zimri Robinson, a natural musical prodigy, is a "plebe"—a worker at the enormous warehouse that supplies an on-line marketplace that has supplanted all commerce. Her grueling schedule and her grandmother's illness can't keep her from making music—even if it is illegal. Orpheus and Zimri are not supposed to meet. He is meant for greatness; she is not. But sometimes, rules are meant to be broken.

"Well, let's just say I've been through a lot of things that should have put me in the grave a long time ago. And everytime I get hacked, shot, thrown off a building, burnt alive, blown up... I just get better. You see these fangs I got." Savage put his hand on Orbit's shoulder and showed him his menacing teeth. "Well, a farmer took a baseball bat to my face and knocked them and every other tooth out of my face when he thought I was killing his calves. Right after that he put a shot gun to my face and pulled the trigger. I don't know about you but most people don't look like me after something like that, let alone be walking the earth. That's why I hope this Michael doesn't put my blood into the wrong hands."

"The Gifted Listener" is a book for the music lover, who hasn't any musical skills. This small volume is about classical music and it's composers. It is simple and easy to read, with just enough detail, not to be confusing to the non-musician. The author has a special insight into classical music, difficult even for a musician to understand. In this small work a goodly amount of territory covering composers, their music and personal experiences in creative listening is covered. It is Sardo's opinion that listening is as creative as performing, regardless of age and background. It is Michael Sardo's hope that "The Gifted Listener" will eventually be suggested reading in high school and Junior College musical appreciation classes. The author feels that his book should be considered for reading even in specialized secondary schools, which concentrate in all areas of performing arts. There are many excellent comprehensive music reference books on the market for serious students of music to study and read. What makes "The Gifted Listener" unique is the way that it treats musical listening in everyday language. The beauty of this book is that it makes classical music come alive, and at the same time is intimate to one's daily emotions. It is hoped that this book will encourage those that have not been touched with musical capability to continue on a joyful journey in creative listening, such as the author has traveled.
