Description du produit

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 A Very Simple Telekinetic Story 2 décembre 2014
Par J. Perez - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
What I would have liked to know before I bought this book. (minor spoilers)

1. What type of book is it: adventure, action, drama, etc? This is a small, and simple, coming of age post-apocalyptic superpower story. (What a mouthful.)

2. What is the story about, in general? The story is about the Hyllis family and specifically Tarc. It revolves around his growing `talent', family relations, his self-discovery as a man and the dangers of fighting off a small hostile force. The plot is VERY simple and the origin story equally so.

3. What/Who is the target audience? The target audience is teenagers and young adults. Genre wise: superpower aficionados and post-apocalyptic aficionados.

4. How is the proofreading? I wasn't tripped by any spelling errors.

5. Is there character development or exploration? Yes. Keep in mind that the Hyllis family are all protagonists, with Tarc being the main protagonist. The story explores Tarc's personality, his relationship with his sister, mother and father and the gradual growth of prudence and responsibility that adversity brings.

Secondary characters are generally well detailed and support the general `small town' feel of this simple tale.

The antagonists, though one dimensional and obvious, mesh well with the story.

6. Are the characters likable? I was pleasantly surprised by the characters. The Hyllis family are three dimensional. None of them are automatically perfect. Though they have `talents', all suffer from personality flaws, insecurities, small town fears, along with their dedication, loyalty, family strength and responsibility. They are well rounded with descriptions as well as personal peculiarities.

I didn't pay too much attention to other characters, including the antagonists, because they filled particular rote roles. They weren't impressive, but well written.

7. Do you have to suspend disbelief? I had a number of issues with some of the logical decisions that were taken by the Hyllis family, but, at the same time, they were believable. The Hyllis family acted like PEOPLE from a small town not heroes. It wasn't particularly `wowing', but believable.

The world is not exactly well explained. There is no reason to go back to a `sword, bow and arrow' technological level. Nothing stops people from making gunpowder, bullets and servicing guns. The technology wasn't burned out or fizzled out like in S.M. Stirling books where the fundamental laws of nature changed and prevented guns from working well. It is much more difficult to learn how to make bows and swords (plus how to use them) than to simply continue to make guns. So no, I don't understand the tech degradation.

8. Does the story keep its pacing? The story keeps its pacing, but understand, the story is underwhelming. The scale of this story is so very small, that it left me shrugging. The most I felt from it was "Oh, that's cool." Enjoy it for what it is, simple, small and not very complex. The story was entertaining, but, again, I felt like shrugging half the time.

9. Is the book worth the asking price? In all honesty, I would have liked to pay $3 or less for this small book.

In conclusion: This is a very predictable and very simple origin story that does not try to surprise or reach beyond the scope. The entire book is an introduction for the protagonists: the Hyllis family and Tarc. The protagonists are well written, with believable character merits and flaws. This is well done. The very mundane antagonists are stage setters for testing the Hyllis' `talents'. That's it. That's the story: I have talent, I grow talent, I use talent on small time villains and save the day, roll credits. Does that make it a bad book? Not at all, but it's not a `great' book either. The proofreading is good, but the language is very simple. The reader won't find great artistry in the sentence composition. I feel the price might be a little high, given the simple nature of this read, its world building and its scope. Regardless of its limitations, the story is easy on the mind and manages to entertain.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Best Yet from Dr. Dahners 24 mai 2015
Par Charles F. Kartman - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I have enjoyed all the Ell Dorsai books and the two Vaz books, but "Telekinetic" may be even better. It shares some of the same YA characteristics: a youthful protagonist using extraordinary abilities to accomplish the seemingly impossible, and encountering hostility from authority figures. This one, however, ventures into gory violence that goes well beyond what Ell faced in her first struggle against terrorists.

The story takes place in a post-apocalyptic world that has regressed to a state lacking in almost all the technology we take for granted, basically pre-Industrial Revolution. The Hyllis family has a secret, that it has the ability to see into things, or move things, or in the case of young Tarc Hyllis, a new awareness that he has both. When a small army of thugs take over his town. his new abilities are put to the ultimate test.

I had wondered in the other series why Dr. Dahners left medical uses for his physics discoveries largely unexplored, except for some mention of medical "ports" in the Ell series. Well, it may be because he is getting all that out of his system in the Hyllis series. It is interesting, and refreshingly easy to follow in contrast with the more esoteric science that is the basis for Ell and Vaz.

Dr. Dahners never fails to entertain, notwithstanding his tendency to paint his guys too broadly. I very much look forward to continuing this outstanding saga.

Telekinetic is a story set in a distant future wher civilization has been wiped out by a virus, started by a researcher experimenting with DNA from a 'magician' with telekinetic skills: he can lift a bean with his mind.

Several generations later, the telekinetic gene has been handed down through one family, the Hyllis clan. Mom is a healer who can see into her patients, Dad has a bit of telekinetic talent, but their son, Tarc, has both tlelkinetic ability as well as his Mother's talent. Both of his talents are much stronger than his parent's.

The author does not say how long after the virus this story takes place, but this society is in the iron age with horses as the means to travel and haul loads. There are no firearms or modern equipment to be had, except for a few items from the 'ancients'.

The story revolves around a number of 'bad men' who bully the locals. All carry swords and are eager to use them. Tarc and his family use their talents to resist the invaders and protect their town... but no one in town knows of these special talents, so they must be careful that no one finds out, otherwise, they'd be branded as witches or sorcerers.

The story is very engaging and fun to read. Torc uses his talent telekinesis to guide throwing knives and arrows to their targets with unerring accuracy. He can use this same talent to move internal organs inside the bodies of his mother's patients. It occurrs to me, why didn't he use this skill to stop the hearts of his enemies, rather than throwing knives? It would have been much safer for him and more spooky for the enemy. Oh well, it is what it is.

Overall, the story is clever and evenly paced. The editing is quite good. I found no errors. While it was a fun read, there were no nail-biting scenes, nor were there any low points. Just a good even story. I wasn't really 'blown away' by Telekinesis, it was entertaining. I would recommend it.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Another excellent book by an excellent author. A nice flight on the feathers of pure fantasy, what if? 15 août 2014

This author recently wrote the Ell Donsaii series which I found to be very entertaining and good, read them if you haven't already. Here is a fun start on a new series which may have even more potential. One idea that I hope that the author follows up on is that very small (buzzz ... nano-scale or smaller) telekinetic actions could could have mega great effects. As a healer the main character in the story shows the beings of great talents, I have hopes that the author will find a way to not just use the talent to destroy but to create. Maybe to mutate the bacteria in a wound into some kind of symbiosis (reference the science book "MISSING MICROBES" by M Blaser) or perhaps utilize existing molecular machines some how (ref. "LIFE'S RATCHET" by P Hoffmann). WHAT IF...
4.0 étoiles sur 5 I am a big fan of Dahners work. 25 mai 2015

Though Dahners stories are 'clumsily told', they are fun, and the bad guys get their comeuppance - tomorrow, not next year. Reading level is 'quite young adult', which usually means that the writing is often too blatant, when trying to make a point. But the points are fun.

Also, the heroes will never be violated, killed off, marginalized or eaten alive. (Well, Ell got marginalized in a couple of books. sigh. But it wasnt too bad). So, its mostly family friendly, likely for ages 14 and up, I would postulate.

I reread every one of his books, multiple times.

- I like the characters.
- The worlds are believable enough.
- The pacing is slow, but i dont mind. Its not too slow.
- There are no flash backs - yay
- There are no dream sequences - yay
- The story is linear - yay
- The heroes have super powers - yay
- Most scenes push the story forward. Not a lot of filler.

Yes, the individual books are short, but the author makes up for that, by publishing something every month or two.
Yes, the story arcs are simple and linear, but I read fiction to relax. I dont want fiction books that read like textbooks.

These stories are like Quality B Movies.

Bad stuff? The characters stay naive for too long. When bad stuff happens to them, they dont learn their lessons fast enough. This gets tiresome.
Thats my biggest gripe.
