Product Description

Product Description

Sammy, a 14-year-old fugitive, accidentally discovers he has the powers of a Psion.

Plucked off the streets, he is thrust into the rigorously-disciplined environment of Psion Beta headquarters. As a new Beta, Sammy must hone his newfound abilities using holographic fighting simulations, stealth training missions, and complex war games. His fellow trainees are other kids competing to prove their worth so they can graduate and contribute to the war effort.

But the stifling competition at headquarters isolates Sammy from his peers. Learning to use his incredible powers is difficult enough, but when things go horribly wrong on a routine training mission, he must rely on the other Betas to stay alive.

The Silent War is at a tipping point; even one boy can be the difference.

But to do so, he must survive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb 22 April 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I don't know about you, but so often I feel let down when I buy a 'cheap' kindle book by an unknown author. Poor English, massive amounts of typos, massive plot holes, etc. Thankfully none of that is here.

Set in the near(ish) future it's a World not as we know it, with twin dueling Governments fighting a hidden war via operatives. We get introduced to one of them, who, like the others, has powers through genetic anomalies.

It's a well thought out vision of the future, and very well delivered. It focuses on life in training to be an operative, but you get enough glimpses of the outside world to know there is an over arching theme going on.

Well written, believable characters, interesting concepts - I wouldn't hesitate in recommending this to anyone. I'm off to buy the 2nd book in the series now...

5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining and great value! 6 Oct 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
A colleague recommended this book though I knew nothing about it. I thoroughly enjoyed it and am eager to get my hands on the sequel. I'd say it caters more to the male crowd given the sci-fi/ futuristic setting with the main character, Sammy, being a teenager initally lost in himself but then finding purpose and much more. There's plenty of action, suspense, thrills, and even a few twists and turns. Great value for an entertaining read.
