The Aledan Psion, Christine Myers

No Comments

When Michelle Marlow, a latent telepath, first touched Hankura Narcaza’s mind when they were children, he barely knew what psi-mates were. But as an adult he could no longer deny their connection. When she is nearly killed in a street fight on the dystopian Earth of the distant future, Hankura knows he must go there and find her for his soul to ever know peace, no matter that it could very well cost him his life

Compelled by his family to return to Aledus, Hankura takes Michell with him. Life on Aledus is complicated by family dynamics and discriminatory laws against psions. Life on Aledus for the psi-mates is more difficult than they ever dreamed. 

The Aledan Psion is a science fiction tale with a twist as it has a prominent theme of romance… a very compelling theme I may add! The themes woven throughout this book are quite naturally sensational; Christine Myers manages to weave ideas I never thought would be able to mesh well but she does so in the most sound of ways, and this characteristic is just one of the many concepts that make The Aledan Psion so remarkable.

The Aledan Psion follows the male protagonist of the novel, Hankura Narcaza, a young man who we meet as he wakes from a nightmare that involves an exceptional young woman called Michelle Marlow. Michelle Marlow is a telepath and over twenty years ago, she mind-linked with Hankura because she felt a connection that she could not shake. Hankura, despite being older is still connected with Michelle so when he awakes from a terrifying nightmare, one that panics him he knows he must do something. In his dream he envisions Michelle, only Michelle is not safe and is in fact in grave danger… or is she? In his vision, he feels Michelle needing him and it unsettles him as something does not feel right and so he must embark on a dangerous mission to find and help Michelle before it is too late.

The reader will be taken on a breathtaking journey to a dystopian Earth in which crime is rife and back again to Aledus. The result is an extremely engaging, fast-paced journey that will take readers on a voyage through space and time and this book lovers, is the general premise of the outstanding tale that is The Aledan Psion.

The story of The Aledan Psion is one that delighted me early on, and I believe this is down to the expressive powers courtesy of the excellent author, Christine Myers and her flawless creation of both Hankura and Michelle. When I first started to read this book, I was lost in Hankura’s easy to read but in-depth narrative. Hankura’s personalty jumped right off the page and into my heart, and I knew from that point onwards that I was invested in his story, but also the general plot of the book.

Christine Myers is a force to be reckoned with because she has accomplished the impossible… a brilliant science fiction, romantic tale that is not cheesy! Sadly, I read a lot of sci-fi romance novels that are generic and lackluster so to read a book that manages to blend the two themes supremely is phenomenal and I have Myers to thank for this. Not only is Myers an expert at weaving ideas, she is also extraordinary at developing the world of Aledus and the world of dystopian Earth to an incredible amount and placing the reader right in it. The reader will be able to entirely set themselves in the futuristic worlds and the result is pure excitement and awe.

As The Aledan Psion is a dramatic science fiction tale with hints of romance laced throughout, I have no choice but to award this brilliant book a stellar Five Stars! So please, if you are looking for an exceptional science fiction tale then read this book and get lost in an incredible world!
