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.)

Genre: Young Adult, Paranormal, Urban Fantasy

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent again March 2, 2014

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.

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!

5.0 out of 5 stars An amazing page turner November 2, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I had previously read book one, so I knew what to expect. Despite having read the first book (I read a few books between the first and second) my memory was foggy of the first one. After reading the first few pages, Adrian explains that he won't recap. But he does recap just enough for you to remember where you left off. This amazing book is rated as FIVE stars and it earned every one of them.
It starts off with the narrator, which this being a first person is none other than Adrian Howell. They have escaped the research center and are headed to their new home... With the Guardians! Yes, that is right, Adrian's new family chose a psionic faction to side with and things are going to change for Adrian. They arrive quickly at NH-1, or New Haven One, their new home. And while there are quite a bit of luxury here, there is also a lot of work to be done...For Adrian.
Adrian Howell is a destroyer, his psionics make him the perfect soldier. But Adrian doesn't want that, he wants to live in peace. Nevertheless, he is trained by Terry who "was raised by wolves". He is also taxed with homeschooling, and teaching Alia (his younger `sister') to mouth speak. I was slightly saddened at the burdens placed on Adrian. He seems to be, at 13 years of age, more a father to Alia than a brother. Teaching her to swim, ride a bike, talk, and basically tied to her side 99% of the time. It is the only downside, or problem, that I had with this novel.
"Then perhaps it would surprise you to know that we got an anonymous call that gave us not only your exact location, but also informed us that a team of Seraphim were hunting ou, and would probably have arrived before sunrise."
As alsways, there was enough conflict and excitement to keep the pages turning. I, for one, read the book within a week.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great story February 11, 2013
By Miemie
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the second book in the ALL FOR FREE series. Even better, it is not only free, but also a great story. You have to start with the frist book, or else you will miss too much of the plot. The story of Adrian and the rest of his friends may seem like a YA story, but it is great series for all ages. Brilliant plot, great storytelling, believable characters. A 2013 must read for everyone, even if you don't like SF.
