I read a book a year or 2 ago, with the following as the plot.

A planet recovering from a war in the past between genetically engineered humans vs normal humans.
The genetically modified were killed off except 3 children (maybe 2) and 1 elderly war veteran who ends up helping the children.
The kids are stronger, more intelligent, and 1 is able to sort of interface with networking computer equipment with his mind.
They end up having to run away because 1 of the kids hurts a human, and end up finding some technology hidden away and flying off into space (which ends the book, leading to me wanting to buy the next book)

I know this is a bit vague, and probably a bad way to introduce myself to a community, but it's been driving me crazy that I cannot remember this title or author so I can read more in the series.

I would appreciate help if possible =).

Thanks.

Michael

Sounds vaguely Escape/Race to Witch Mountain like but not quite.

Still young adult/children's book though?

It should have been normal adult sci-fi, I only shop in that section, no kids books =P.
I probably didn't do a very good description.
One of the kids hunts, they were raised by families separately.
Anyway, thanks for the reply, hopefully someone will know this.
Sorry for posting in the wrong section initially, I missed this little subforum.
