The Council: A Psi's Revenge (After the Pulse Book 1) Kindle Edition
You come home to find your father murdered and the killers' cold and brutal thoughts suddenly flash inside your head. They're waiting for you...
Jatz is a low-level Psi working for the Company in southwest Australia's biggest territory, helping them rebuild society from near-extinction in the previous century before he's launched headlong into the hunt for his father's murderer and the desperate search for answers to his past and to his new abilities.
Dukan is doing hard labour across the territory as he slowly plots his escape, and his revenge. Wrongly-convicted, he keeps his telepathic abilities as secretive as his shadowy past, never knowing how intimately-entwined it is with Jatz's family history, nor that both seek the same sadistic killer.
Aided by new friends and his ex-boyfriend, Jatz will learn to harness power mankind has never known while stubbornly flinging himself into trouble while Dukan struggles to balance obsession with compassion for kindred broken souls like himself. They'll both need all the help they can get as they take on an internal hit squad, The Council, bent on toppling the territory's leadership and reforging it under the same man they're after.
Station Eleven meets The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo in this action-packed thrill-ride through dystopian Western Australia.
"One of the best dystopian novels I’ve ever read."

Praise for Jay X. Lee's writing:
"Well-written and exceptionally entertaining. His writing style, voice, and ability to integrate action, flashbacks, and contemporary social discourse made for a thoroughly captivating and thought provoking read."
- M Scheuring
"An immersive world that I find captivating. His ability to describe the action in his stories adds a layer of excitement to the text without detracting from the plot."

Lee clearly has a knack for writing conflict scenes. Those were written with enough detail to know what’s going on, without overly slowing down the flow of the story.
I particularly liked the world building aspect that Lee brought. The material was a bit out of my norms, but easy enough to follow. It feels like there is a history that being uncovered throughout the book and is set up for more to come. There are new technologies that are introduced, but they’re brought up in a way that is reminiscent of the Star Trek tricorders. It’s there, it works, and it’s believable.
In the end, I really enjoyed the book and am looking forward to the next one!
