Book Description

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

Despite his newfound standing in the Guardian faction, psionic destroyer Adrian Howell never imagined himself joining the Knights for actual combat missions. He would have preferred to live in peace, but the psionic war takes no one's preferences into account. And much to his own surprise, Adrian finds himself beginning to enjoy the thrill of the chase - until something goes drastically wrong. Now, even as the Guardians prepare for a major showdown against their primary enemy faction, Adrian finds himself trapped in a world of darkness that is slowly poisoning his heart and mind... drawing him ever closer to becoming the very monster he had set out to kill.
(Lesser Gods is the third book of Adrian Howell's Psionic Pentalogy.)

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

5.0 out of 5 stars Again excellent March 30, 2014

I have been an avid reader all of my life. How I envy the talent and imagination the author has. I am grateful that he released these all at once and that I do not have to wait 6 months to read on. This tale has captured my attention. Can't wait to read on. Every bit as good as the Hunger games and even the Harry Potter books, in my opinion

Full disclosure: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. The opinions below are entirely my own.

"Lesser Gods" is the third book in the PSIONIC series, and as such, if you haven't read the first two books, you may find yourself a little lost. The author doesn't sacrifice pacing to catch up new readers, so jumping into the middle is discouraged. 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 where "The Tower" left off, "Lesser Gods" is quick to demonstrate how the protagonist, Adrian, will be in for a rough war, even after all of the training in the prior book. The author delves into some dark places in this book, and as Adrian grows up, hopefully the readership will as well - this series is moving into solidly teenage territory, meaning younger readers might need some parental guidance. However, the evolving maturity of both the series and its characters are to their credit, weaving an engrossing and emotional tale at a generally-smooth pace.

The development is quick and well-timed, greatly trimming complains of pacing from the prior two entries in the series - there are still a few quiet points, but they are short enough and endowed with enough character development to make them more of a welcome respite from high action, and a way to ease into the next battle. It's not quite perfect yet, but the improvement is clear and welcome. That said, there were a few instances where the plot felt rather contrived, and while I will name no examples here (spoilers!) it did, in some instances, come off rather awkwardly.

What makes a family? Who would you die for? These questions and more are very nearly answered in the exciting follow up to The Tower.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lesser Gods (Psionic Pentalogy) April 15, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This whole series is just fabulous and so intense! If there were ever anything possible remote to what these books are like, the author really did a great job. In all I think its about 5 books and each is just as exciting as the first. I recommend this series if you are in to reading a book non-stop adventure. Sometimes it seems a bit extreme because of the starting age of the characters in this series but as you read, you experience their growth year after year. I reccommend this book and the ones before and after it. If you are a Harry Potter fan then its right down your alley.

I can't get enough of these books- I really wish there were more of them. I'm hoping Adrian writes more- I'd definitely be up for that. Psionic powers, folks in trouble, a secret underground community... I love it!
