When Heroes Reborn premieres Thursday, it picks up years after the first series ended, and there are differences in the status quo this time around. The public is aware of superpowers, and the people who have them (referred to in the show as “Evos”) are hunted down like dangerous criminals.

Ahead of the premiere, fans can get a sense of what life is like for Evos with this exclusive excerpt from Brave New World, the first of six e-books that go behind the scenes of Heroes Reborn and fill in some of the gaps between Heroes and the follow-up event series. Brave New World, written by David Bishop, is available for pre-order on Amazon. The e-book — with print editions to follow — is set one year after the events of the Odessa Summit and addresses many previously unanswered questions from the original series.

Heroes Reborn premieres Thursday at 8 p.m. ET on NBC. Read on for your exclusive sneak peek at Brave New World.
