Book 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

Editorial Reviews

From the Author

The Tower is the second installment of the Psionic Pentalogy. Though each of the five books in this series has its own standalone plot, unique side characters, conflict and resolution, nevertheless they are meant to be read in order. So if you haven't yet read the first book, Wild-born, now would be a good time to go pick that one up.

To those of you who have read Wild-born and liked it enough to continue on with this series, I sincerely hope you enjoy this book too. Without giving away any major spoilers, allow me to say that The Tower is, in many ways, the beginning of the larger story arc that continues through to the end of the series. An important new character is introduced while the original cast is further developed and the world setting is expanded upon. This is the deep breath before the plunge. As such, some readers might find the first half of this book to be a little on the quiet side, but I do promise a deafening climax at the end.

Thank you for continuing with this story. (And again, please post your reviews.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent again March 2, 2014

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.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars no sophomore slump here May 24, 2014
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.
