Seventeen-year-old Destiny Ajaye took on the LAPD in her South Central Siege and paid for it-not with her life, but with her freedom. Now, Destiny is sequestered in the Madrasa Institute, a government school for prodigies. But will she use her gifts to wage war at the military's behest-or is she already planning another revolution?
From writers MARC BERNARDIN and ADAM FREEMAN (Castle Rock, Alphas, X-Men Origins: Nightcrawler, The Authority, The Highwaymen) and rising-star artist ROSI KAMPE, comes a sequel that promises to set Destiny's world-and ours-ablaze.

    Genius: Cartel #1 sets things off in the right way! The creative team handles the return of Destiny and her world rather well, all while building an easy to follow release that's sure to attract curious readers. The dialogue keeps the material engaging in all the right ways, while the team behind her life story pushes the book towards a solid cliffhanger. In other words: this is absolutely one title that earns a spot on your pull-list! Read Full Review

    'Genius: Cartel' is a great opening chapter that encapsulates Destiny Ajaye's story arc entering this miniseries and then taking a clever approach to her training as a strategical savant. Freeman and Bernardin have created a complex character that's treated as a lab rat that's too smart for her surroundings. Things are going to boil over as Destiny and her handlers are bound to clash in this riveting and smart thriller.  Read Full Review
