Although this book is part of a series not one of the books so far has followed a pattern or became predictable. The action starts almost at page one in this book and hardly slows down. I got the feeling this book is building up to something big in book five and I really can't wait to find out what happens next ... but then I will have no more of this series to read. As always the quality of writing is excellent and each character - even the minor characters - all really come alive in this one.
The series continues losing none of its emotional power. You will not be disappointed, I don't like reviews that give the story line, by writing from the main characters viewpoint in the way this author does is excellent.
Amazing series. Highly recommend. A modern day saga that shows war isn't made up of good guys and bad guys and ideologies conflict and no one is safe or innocent from the fall out of war. I love that these characters grow and falter at the same time. Howell creates a world that exists within our own and yet is hidden. The realistic fantasy world Howell creates doesn't contradict itself and at times I forget that these characters he creates are fantasy. Excellent series and deserves to be showcased globally.
5つ星のうち5.0Excellent Continuation In the Psionic Pentalogy
I am thoroughly enjoying this series. The Quest: PSIONIC Book Four (Psionic Pentalogy 4) by Adrian Howell is definitely worth the time to read and got me hooked. I enjoyed every page of this book and the previous three. Adrian Howell, the main character, is a totally believable character who finds he has powerful telekinetic abilities. Being a teenager, he does things a teenager would do, but he is forced to grow up fast. The community he goes to live with is involved in a war with other psionic factions, the God slayers, and the Wolves, the military group out to capture and study them. The war heats up and the violence escalates. Adrian is constantly thrown into situations and moral dilemmas no teenager should have to face. I was as reluctant to put this book down as I was with the first three volumes. I can't wait to finish the series. A very well told story clearly taking up where the first three books left off. A well written series, I highly recommend to everyone.
This book is party of a set of 5 books To fully appreciate the book you need to read read them all, but that will be no chore, as this is one of the tightest series of books I have read in a long time.
The plot is compelling and pulls you eagerly through all 5 books. The characters are well developed, if somewhat quirky because of the nature of the story and its sci-fi aspects. The story moves very smoothly and seamlessly through a variety of fascinating twists and turns.
Truly I do not know when I have enjoyed a series of books more. It is not as complex as something epic like Lord of the Rings, but it definitely hits the high ground for the genre. I most definitely can recommend this series and this book.
