Publisher's Summary

The joint NSA/CIA school worked, although not as its designers intended. Some did, indeed, develop usable telepathy. Others were partially successful, able to communicate mind-to-mind, but only with others like themselves. And some gained abilities the school’s designers never intended - psychokinesis or the ability to move objects by mental power alone; levitation, which in practical terms, is the ability to fly; and much more. Much, much more. 

The school, in its short existence before fearful controllers shut it down, had an unexpected and very unfortunate side effect: The paranormal abilities soon began to spread. Simple proximity to someone with a talent was enough. 

Too late, the school’s administrator acted. One by one, the former students were tracked down and eliminated. But one escaped. He found three like himself, talented, and together, they went into hiding. 

But already, there are others. And some of the newly talented are criminals. 

One of the crooks, arguably the most powerful psi of all, has begun recruiting an army of people like himself and also ordinary military forces armed with stolen weapons. 

Forced to act, even if by doing so they once again attract government attention, the former combat wizard and his friend Ray offer to help the police. 

But can even they prevail against the mad esper who thinks himself a god?

Discovering more talent!

After escaping the mountain landslide in the prior volume, “T” and Ray settled in Little Dry Creek, Nevada. Chezzy and Anna Maria soon joined them. With some of their resources, they bought an abandoned ranch for back taxes and built a small clinic for Chezzy. The four were set to lead a quiet life. If they would stop helping people determine if they have a talent maybe it would have stayed that way. Then again, it appears other people are realizing they have a talent and cashing in on it. That might not be so bad, but some talents can be dangerous. What if a person of the loose morality type gains one of those dangerous talents, like pyrokinesis. Pyrokinesis is the purported psychic ability allowing a person to create and control fire with the mind. This story looks into that probability. This is the third book in the series I have enjoyed. The situations and talents may be a bit over the top but who can say that they’re not possible? Stranger things than this have happened in our world. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

It was the 3rd book.

I have only heard this 3rd book but it was perfectly fine, and simply enough idea that it wasn't a problem.
However the first 3rd of the book was punishing and far too long, if you read the other 2, you must have been skipping chapters in frustration. Page filling bull and fluff!

The main story needed refinement and more polish, shame the author didn't put the work in here, rather than the other rubbish that was offered.
Their jobs and interest turned out to be totally unimportant. Village life, only had a minor part, yet took 3 chapters. Mining... Why! Just 3 to 4 pages to bring a character in.

Audio has several repeats of sentences, nice to see the overly expensive price of these audio books means you get quality products. This isn't the first on to have this, l would be upset if l had paid for this.
