Ordinary by Starr Z. Davies

The world almost ended, the only people left, where those who had powers. 

Now the society is somewhat rebuilt. But the new threat comes in a form of power regression. People are getting weaker and weaker. Paragon, a biotech company supposedly is doing research on how to fight it. 

And then there is Ugene. He was born with no power. That makes him an oddity, he stands out, has no future, because no one will hire him. Paragon offers him a job, to be their test subject. With the promise of helping his family he agrees.

But waits him there is nothing he signed up for. The building is full of people, some with weaker powers, some with powers too strong, but all living in horrible conditions, closed in, subjected to horrible tests daily, with no chance of escape. Ugene has one secret weapon. His mind. When he realizes just how horrible their life is, he starts to formulate a plan, talk to others, find some answers.

He unknowingly starts a fight.

It’s such an epic story. The storyline is very, very complex. At every turn, there is a new twist waiting. I love the setting, the characters, they just jumped off the pages. It’s been a few weeks since I read it and I can’t get it out of my head. I keep thinking about what will happen next...
