Présentation de l'éditeur

“Telekinetic” is the first of a series of stories featuring the Hyllis family, who tend to inherit telekinetic “talents.” The story is set after a plague induced apocalypse. The resulting collapse of civilization has reduced mankind back to iron and horsepower.
Tarc Hyllis’s mother (and his grandfather before her) could “feel” things with their talent. They became healers because of their ability to feel inside their patients. This frequently lets them diagnose the underlying causes of an illness. Having made a diagnosis, unfortunately, there is all too often very little they can do to treat the problem.
Tarc’s father can “push” objects with his mind, but because he can’t feel inside of anything, he doesn’t know where to push in order to help to treat his wife’s patients.
Tarc is just gaining the ability to do both of these things. The combination of these two powers will let him both diagnose a physical problem such as bleeding and also stop that bleeding by applying pressure inside the patient. This is a very exciting development for his mother, who so often has had to watch her patients die for lack of effective treatment.
Then some strangers show up to scout the town where the Hyllises live. They plan and initiate a violent takeover. Can Tarc’s powers, weak as they are, play a role in resisting this invasion?

3.0 étoiles sur 5 No way is this 5 star literature. 26 juillet 2014
Par David Morgan - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I've read all the Donsai books and they good enough that I'll follow the series but 5s and acclamation none of them deserve, nor does this one.

I almost put this one down because when you attain that significant of a leap in weapon capability you don't wait around to get mad over the enemy raping your neighbor, you just wipe the bastards out, immediately.

The heck with the knife and arrow guidance system! If you can squeeze a bladder you can damn well squeeze a heart or a major artery. And on top of that if you can see in the dark and sneak around undetected surely there could be 100 strokes and heart attacks from unknown causes in a single night. Why let any of them escape?

I'm sure I'll read the rest but this isn't 5 star class material at all. 5 stars is a Vorkosigan Saga. Well maybe that's a 10.

Update: I had one other comment for this book but it's for quite a lot of books that do this. Folks, there is absolutely no way that earth's population returns to swords and bows/arrows as the primary weapon. At least not for thousands of years and I doubt even that. It's currently estimated that there are around 800 million or so firearms in the world. They're simple to make and too damn easy to copy. A tank mechanic invented the most popular assault weapon in his spare time during war time. Not possible a simple blacksmith could not make make an AK-47 from scratch form a drawing or a sample and gunpowder is just as simple. I almost put down books that do this. To writers everywhere, if you're going to make your story a regression to swords you better have an unassailable justification for how it happened to be plausible.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Wow! Read this Story!! 20 juillet 2014

I stumbled upon this story and I am glad I did. I couldn't put it down until I was finished and I look forward to the next in the series.

This story stars the Hyllis' family but the point of view is mostly from the son Tarc. The setting takes place post-apocalyptic but don't expect zombies. This is just the setting to give flavor to the story. The Hyllis family has a teleknetic talent that they keep hidden from the town but use to help the town. Tarc's talent is just beginning to develop and his parents tell him about the family secret talent and help him develop it. During this time some bad characters come into the town to take over. The entire town but especial Tarc and his family are put to the test to save the town.

The family and especially Tarc feel three dimensional and the reader grows to care about what is happening in the story. Some really bad things happen but some really good things happen too and you end with a good feeling about people in general.

The only negative I have about the story is that I felt the Pre-prologue and the Prologue were not needed. The author could have worked the small bit of information this gave the reader into the story and expanded on the main story line. However, once the reader is through this part the story really becomes interesting and a must read.

Again, I look forward to the next in the series.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Too damn short; but 31 juillet 2014

Well worth reading. Actually I have yet to encounter a Dahners story that isn't.

And it's -- clean! Well, yeah, that too; but mostly I mean free of those annoying oopsies, a few of which seem to plague works from even major publishing houses. Congrats to Dahners editors: I noticed no such in this book at all.

The, "Hyllis family stories," are off to a great start and I'm eager to read more! The problem, of course, is that I'm already awaiting the next volume in the, "Ell Donsaii," series. Perhaps Mr. Dahners would consent to clone himself?

This has the potential to be another great series. Like the Ell donsaii series it is entertaining enough to want to read more than once. One of the other reviewers commented that Dahners missed some obvious potentials from the abilities and carryover technology. This is typical of Dahners writings.While this offended the other reviewer,I simply enjoy the readability and imagination to come up with the premises of Dahners stories. If a story is good enough,despite some missing minor intuitive leaps,that I return for a reread it is worth a 5 star rating.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Fun book!! 30 juillet 2014

I've read some other negative reviews regarding this book and whilst I can see the point some of them are making I think they are wrong.
Whilst the main character may supposedly miss some "obvious" ways to use his talent I think when you read the book that these supposed gaps in the book simply reflect the character's gaps in anatomy knowledge.
I enjoyed the book immensely and look forward to the following books in the series. I really hope book 2 is not very far away!!!
