Review

"Has enough gore, conspiracy and heart to appeal to the mature reader also... to date the best produced e-book I have seen." - Between the Leaves (Book Review Blog)
 
"I was unable to put the book down and I raced to the finish line." - The Schwartz Reviews (Book Review Blog)

"This book will be good for your mature 12 year old, and can probably be enjoyed into high school." - Science Fiction And Such (Book Review Blog)

From the Author

Wild-born is the first installment of the Psionic Pentalogy, a series of five full-length novels that follow the life and adventures of a telekinetic teenager and telepathic child through a dark world of secret paranormal societies and deadly religious cults. The protagonists start fairly young, and mature over the course of the series, which spans approximately five years of their lives. Wild-born covers the first year, introducing the psionic world and many of the primary characters.

In order to guarantee the quality of the writing and overall storyline of the series, all five books of the Psionic Pentalogy were completed before any of them were published. While the story is told from a teenager's point of view, the books were never written with an exclusively young adult audience in mind, and I am hopeful that readers of all ages will enjoy the series. (And please do post your reviews.)

WOW - not a single moment where nothing is happening. It was action from start to finish. I know there are a lot of books about people born with powers but I felt this one was different. Following the story of a child left on his own with powers he does not understand, trying to find his sister, and making his way through a new world. There are several different factions after him and a few people trying to help him. You don't know who to trust and what is really going on. It keeps you on your toes from beginning to end. Great great story! Some violence but no sex and not too scary for teens

Really enjoyed this book. The 13-year old hero was believable and I really related to him. He had heart. The action kept me interested and made me think what I would do in his position. I love books that make me think. The ending was satisfying with enough threads to make you want more. In the beginning, he says he didn't realize everyone else didn't have things falling or breaking near him. That is so totally realistic. We think everyone experiences the same things we do. I will add that I am a 70-year old great grandmother. This book is not just for teens.

This is an unusual paranormal series. There is no love story per se but there is a lot of family kind of love and the author really has the adolescent mind down pat. It is an incredible adventure and I am really looking forward to reading more. It reminds me a lot of how much I enjoyed Harry Potter, and the twilight series. There is definitely a lot more story to this adventure.

I'm only 50% into the first book, I have the next 3 books as well, but I wanted to write a review since I'm not seeing any here for this author. The book is good, really good. It's extremely well thought out. It's written in an amazing way, first person (which sometimes is off putting but not here), excellent editing (I've only found one word that I was curious about it's placement)and the storyline keeps you reading. It begins with a boy of 12, it's the telling of his story, in his words, but it reads so much more than that. You aren't burdened with the antics of a 12 year old, mostly because he hasn't had time to fully appreciate being a kid, and you get to watch him mature while enduring so much a 12 shouldn't have too. It continues beyond the age of 12, so don't think it's a 'kid' book, that's simply where it starts. I'm infatuated with the book so far. I may have to come back and revise this review but I seriously doubt it. If you like the unusual, beserkers, angels, guardians, and superhuman abilities, then you'll love this. I am not a 'reviewer' so please don't think I did this because I had to. I was just completely surprised by the lack of reviews on here and had to post something. This author can write, and it's so refreshing to find one that can tell a story, make certain it's edited (readable), and do it in such a bang up way! Kudos to you Mr. Howell. You have earned a loyal follower :-)

Once you start reading you don't want to put it down. The way it is written keeps you very interested to find out what is going to happen next.I can't wait to read the next episode.

Great summer escape the heat or reality whatever. This first volume of a five part series is free so what have you got to loose? I loved the authors take or leave it I could care less attitude in the intro and from there I got hooked. Hooked by the ongoing at times far fetched storyline but hey this is fiction, but more so by the main troupe of characters and a few of the later supporting cast. I really dreaded coming to the end of the series and stretched it out as long as possible, but without reviling anything the author does leave the door open a crack? I hope he decides to open it and venture through it and continue this series whitch would take place in the not to distant future of where this chapter of the saga ends.

This book held my interest. Some parts of the story seem slow to develop. Overall the idea is quite interesting.

A fun and interesting read. I've read all five in the series and have waited till finishing to give a review.

First off, I enjoyed the series very much. Kudos to"Adrian" for developing some very interesting and lifelike characters that had me wanting to read on just to see the character development. The author does a great job in making most characters both interesting and "real". As he explains in the end, it is not just a Good vs. Evil theme but a clash of ideologies. Not always edge of your seat, fast paced action, which is fine with me because he takes the time to make the characters real so the reader can become invested in the story and feel it could be a reality.

There is humor and realism to the dialogue and the timeline (which is important to me when reading a story) feels accurate and right to the story. I highly recommend this series to the fantasy sci-fi genre lovers out there. I look forward to more from "Adrian" or whoever the author decides to be in his next endeavor.
