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...

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.

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 A very good series! April 14, 2014

This book was probably the "slowest" of all of them- which is a completely silly statement, because they're all amazing and action packed! Rather, I think it was "slowest" for me because I took my time reading it!

I really hope Adrian writes more in this universe!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Quest, The Book (Psionic Pentalogy, #4) April 12, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
The saga continues. Some interesting developments challenge our hero/protagonist. Twists, turns, betrayal, and yet more challenges await Adrian in this series of steps toward a conclusion yet to be seen as either a trial, or a triumph. I eagerly yet painfully await the next book in this pentagonal (pun intended) epic.
