Product Description

Product Description

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

After a very shaky beginning as a wild-born telekinetic, Adrian is elated to discover that his new home is at the center of the world's largest psionic city. It should have been a dream come true, but something here is just not right. It's not just that his sister is still missing, or that he is being forced into a rigorous combat training program that is slowly turning him into a killer. Something rotten is hiding... inside him. Adrian must discover the truth behind his recurring, shadowy nightmares, and face the possibility that the greatest evil threatening everything he holds dear might, in fact, be himself.

The Tower is the second 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. The Kindle edition of the first book, Wild-born, is currently being offered free or at heavily reduced cost.

Genre: Young Adult, Paranormal, Urban Fantasy
(Recommended for readers aged 13 to 3013.)

Tabletop-RPG Players Take Note: The Psionic Pentalogy world will soon be featured in award-winning game designer Lester Smith's D6xD6 Role-Playing Game book scheduled for release in the winter of 2014.

Read all five books of Adrian Howell's Psionic Pentalogy in order:

Book One: Wild-born
Book Two: The Tower
Book Three: Lesser Gods
Book Four: The Quest
Book Five: Guardian Angel

The second book in the Psionic Pentalogy. Adrian Howell returns, fresh from his ordeal at the hand of the Wolves and thinks he has found a safe place to live. His new-found powers seem to attract danger wherever he goes and the highly secure Guardian Tower is no different. An Angel spy is released from captivity during the welcoming ceremony sparking a man hunt for the inside who helped him. Adrian is plagued by his own inner-demons preventing him from getting a decent nights sleep and making him doubt his innocence.

The characters from the first book undergo considerable character development, not just due to plot but also to their interaction with each other. Well worth, if you haven't already, reading the first book to see where the characters came from. Alia and Adrian have a close bond due to their time together with the Wolves and Adrian's support has allowed Alia to put her own demons to bed and behave more like the child she should be.

Again the pace is fast moving with plenty of attention to detail. Well edited and a pleasure to read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent again 2 Mar 2014
By Kindle Customer - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This series is similar in some ways to the Harry Potter series. Classical Good Vs. Evil. Enough plot twist to keep interest up. Not just for adolescents either, I'm 70 and am enjoying it. Just like the Harry Potter series which I've read 3 times. Would be nice to see a movie series about Adrian, Alia, Terry and Cindy.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Tower 24 Jun 2014
By Jan Phelan - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Excellent READ. Once you read this one you will probably be like me. I can hardly wait for the next in this series. Good, believable characters that quickly come to life and acquire a life beyond the page. The action is fast paced and seldom lags which makes you eager to READ on until done. Enjoyable experience. I definitely will READ more by Adrian Howell.

Another great installment to this series. The characters were even more fleshed out and you come to care about them deeply. I cannot wait to read the next book to see what other twists await!

4.0 out of 5 stars no sophomore slump here 24 May 2014
By NS - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I love how Adrian "creates" a family for his characters, reminding us that in many families, this is the norm: we find people who need us, who complement us, and who live is, and we share our lives with them. His characters are very real, heart warming and at times heart rending. Very enjoyable read.

I've always been fascinated by the idea of psionics, and Adrian's books do not disappoint! The premise of his Psionic Pentalogy is deep and interesting, and I'm excited to read more!

Definitely a good choice!
