1. Bulletcatcher



They say you can't outrun a bullet - what if you could stop one? 


Gunfire echoes through the mall…
A woman runs past, wide-eyed with terror…
A boy is shot at point-blank range...

But the boy survives the terrorist attack. In fact, he doesn’t even bleed. He is a bulletcatcher – somehow the bullets bounce off him.

Troy’s skills are rare – and soon SPEAR recruits him into its ranks to protect the rich and powerful. Demand is greater than ever as the terrorists scale up the violence. Can Troy and this unit of super-kids keep Terminus City safe?
