Guardian Angels (Psionic Pentalogy Book 5) by Adrian Howell

Standard
My Thoughts:

With a heavy and sad heart I must tell you that this is the final book in the Psionic Pentalogy by Adrian Howell. If you haven’t read this series yet then I envy you, you’re in for a fantastically gripping, entertaining and emotional tale, but alas, I’ve already finished reading the series. I do wish I could go back and read the series again, but I will have to wait a year or so before rereading, in the hopes that I might forget most of it, but it will never be the same as reading the series for the first time. All you potentially new readers for this series, I’m so jealous. If you’re looking for a book where the world inside could almost be the real world today, but way more exciting, dangerous and splashed with superpowers of course, then you have found it with the Psionic Pentalogy.

Here’s a quick overview of Adrian Howell’s world…

The Quest (Psionic Pentalogy Book 4) by Adrian Howell

Standard
My Thoughts:

OH MY GOD, I knew it! I totally saw that plot twist coming but it was still shocking and heartbreaking all at the same time. What am I talking about? I’m not telling you, you will just have to go and read the series, you won’t be disappointed.

I loved this book it was amazing, in fact I’ve finished the whole series now and hardly slept a wink but I’ll review ‘Guardian Angels’ in my next blog. I will say this though, I was crying inside at the end of this series, and almost cried, literal, real tears too!

The Quest welcomes you back to the main characters Adrian and Alia, and yet again these powerful children are faced with difficult tasks and decisions. The author has written these characters so well, and each character (including minor characters), are complex and fully fleshed out by the time you reach this forth installment. God you just want things to go right for once for these poor characters, but nothing ever seems to go right! Naughty Adrian though, some of his past decisions have come back to bite him in the backside in ‘The Quest’, some of the outcomes could have been avoided. Yet that’s the beauty of this story, the author shows you where things could have been different and gets you thinking about what you would have done if you had been in the same situation. Gah! it’s just so unfair, but so brilliant, but still so unfair! Injustice could be this author’s middle name.

Lesser Gods (Psionic Pentalogy Book 3) by Adrian Howell

Standard

My Thoughts:

Oh my god this book almost broke my heart! I could not believe what happened to the main character Adrian, so so so much injustice and I can’t tell you much more than that otherwise it will spoil the story!

Just like Wild-Born and The Tower, Lesser Gods is written from the POV of Adrian Howell, a young teenage boy with incredible telekinetic powers. This third book in this series follows Adrian and his new family and friends, as they fend off their enemies, whilst living with the Guardian faction in a place called New Haven. If you want more details you will just have to read my other blogs, here for Wild-Born and here for The Tower. However just to cover some basics, there is a war going on between various different groups. The Angels are another psionic faction, The God-Slayers are religious extremists, and The Wolves are a military group. The Angels are like the Guardians, only the Angels believe they should be the rulers of the world and mankind, the Guardians oppose this.

The Tower (Psionic Pentalogy Book 2) by Adrian Howell

Standard

My Thoughts:

After reading the first book (Wild-Born) and thoroughly enjoying it, I was impressed with this second book. The Tower isn’t as fast paced as Wild-born, but it has a heck of a lot of mystery and injustice to keep you hooked. I’m on the third book now and the injustice just keeps on growing! If you haven’t read the first book I would strongly recommend that you go and pick it up now, however, you don’t necessarily have to read the first book in order to understand the second book. The author covers the basics of the first book in the first few pages of the second book, so as much as you might not understand all the details, you will be able to pick some things up as you go along. Seriously though, do go and read Wild-born first, it’s epic.

So onto the review…

Wild-born (Psionic Pentalogy Book 1) by Adrian Howell

Standard

My Thoughts:

Dear Author, Wild-Born kidnapped my sleeping hours! I had to admit, rather sheepishly to a close friend, that I had been up until the early hours (3am), finishing this first book.

What a story! I did not expect it but Wild-Born exceeded all of my expectations ten-fold. Written in first person from the point of view of a young teenager – Adrian Howell (also the pen name for the actual author) – Wild-born is an intriguing read. It’s not very often as readers that we get to see and experience a fictional world from the mind of someone so young. It was a refreshing change from all of the other books I have read recently.
