Do you ever wonder what it’s like to live with supernatural abilities? What would you wish for? To be able to fly, read minds or to travel through time? Many of us could only dream to live in this wonderful world.
On the other hand, living in such a world like in THE DARKEST MINDS actually has a price. And to have supernatural powers is to have your freedom taken away from you. Will you still wish to live in such a world?
