Every hero has an origin story. Mine begins with an underground cage fight and ends in a secret identity.
By day I’m Willow Nguyen, not so mild-mannered teenager searching for her missing mother. By night…okay, I’m the same, but it’s easier to break into banks under cover of darkness.
My world is divided into the Academy and the Kings: the law and the thugs. At the centre of their power are the espers like me: the telepaths, psychics and illusionists.
What I can do could change the balance of power in Melbourne. So it makes sense for me to keep a low profile. It’s not my fault that I get drawn into an illegal cage fight. Yes, I did have to become a psychotic King’s nemesis. No I won’t stop fighting until one of us is dead.
With great power comes great pain in the backside. I just have to make sure it hurts them more than me. Willow Nguyen might just be a girl, but Spectra will become a legend.
