Book Description

A telekinetic teenager. A telepathic child. A psionic war.

The psionic war, once thought to be at an end, has been reignited by the rise of a new and exceptionally powerful Angel master. Escaping the fall of their psionic city with a group of refugee children in tow, Adrian and his team face the daunting challenge of keeping their young charges alive as the Guardians are slowly pushed to the brink of destruction. To reunite his family and put an end to the Angel onslaught, Adrian agrees to join a perilous expedition to the far side of the world. There he will seek his answers from a living god... answers that will tell him whether the Guardians have any chance of turning the war around, or if this world of chaos is only the beginning...

The Quest is the fourth book of Adrian Howell's Psionic Pentalogy: a supernatural adventure series with psychic children, teens and adults, telekinesis, telepathy, and many twists and turns in a harsh urban fantasy world.

Genre: Young Adult, Paranormal, Urban Fantasy

5.0 out of 5 stars Sadly only one more book left after this 2 Mar. 2013
By Laura
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A beloved ensemble presses on and reaches new heights 17 April 2013
By Sean P. Endress - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
Full disclosure: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. The opinions below are entirely my own.

"The Quest" is the fourth and penultimate book in the PSIONIC series, so I (and the author, and the characters) strongly advise reading the first three books. There isn't much detailed catch-up in the book, so again, definitely read the others first. This review may contain spoilers for the previous books, so if you'd rather skip it (or my ridiculously long reviewing style!) head on down to the last full paragraph, my "bottom line". It'll be safe there, honest!

Picking up almost directly after "Lesser Gods", "The Quest" wastes little time as the plot picks up with a bang (several, in fact) and big changes are made for our cast. Carrying on prior themes, as Adrian reaches his mid-teens the reader will hopefully be in the same age range, as darkness and violence lurk around every corner. The plot moves rapidly and excitement abounds.

The pacing hardly slows, and while at some points locales blur past without much description, the overall effect is pleasing as there's not a dull moment in the whole book. The main characters continue to evolve and grow into new roles, demonstrating their ongoing journey, and indicating that it may soon be reaching an end. A few new faces join in as well a surprising blast from the past. Mysteries begin to come unraveled and generate further questions, creating callbacks to the past that make for a very satisfying reading experience.

Stylistically, Mr. Howell maintains his usual level of writing quality, adapting deftly to the mind and style of a teenager. His language is succinct but generally descriptive, managing complex ideas with an economy of wording.

As to the editing and layout of the book, I received a .pdf for review, so I can't speak to layout of the Kindle Edition in practice, but it certainly looked good in theory. I noticed some minor errors, but nothing of concern especially since the author has assured me that the books will be re-proofed.

The bottom line? "The Quest" is the PSIONIC Pentalogy's strongest entry yet, and leaves one waiting with bated breath for the final installment. This series will appeal greatly to fans of the YA fiction, especially fantasy. However, if you don't like the genre, you won't like the series. Finally, remember that things are getting dark in the PSIONIC series, so you may want to keep this in the hands of the PG-13 crowd.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating book 5 Jun. 2014
By Susan L. Carrier - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.

Who could you forgive to achieve your goals? With more plot twists than an after school special, The Quest keeps you frantically turning the pages.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Quest 25 Jun. 2014
By Ernestine cooper - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a sequal to 4 or 5 other books and I got to tell you this is one series of books that will stay on your mind for a long time as you watch innocent young kids life become one tragic situation after another all the way to adult hood. The series is just amazaing. Really should read it.
