Publisher's Summary

Telekinetic is the first of a series of post-apocalyptic stories featuring the Hyllis family.

The collapse of civilization has reduced their people back to iron and horsepower. The Hyllises tend to inherit “tele-talents” such as telekinesis and teleportation. Tarc Hyllis’ mother (and his grandfather before her) could “feel” things with their talent. They became healers because they could feel inside their patients, which frequently let them diagnose the underlying causes of an illness. Having made a diagnosis, unfortunately, there was often little they could do to treat a problem.

Tarc’s father can “push” objects with his mind, but, because he can’t feel inside anything, he doesn’t know where to exert force in order to help to treat his wife’s patients. Tarc’s 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 internal bleeding, and then stop that bleeding by applying pressure inside the patient. His mother finds this development extraordinarily exciting. She has too often had to watch her patients die for lack of an effective treatment. Then some strangers show up to scout the town where the Hyllises live. They plan and initiate a violent takeover. Could Tarc’s powers, weak as they are, play a role in resisting this invasion?

It turns out he can guide a knife after it’s thrown...

Laurence Dahners gets to a new level of writing

I've always enjoyed Laurance Dahners' writing. Most of his books are an easy read with a fun sci-fi concept introduced. The writing in the past has been good but not great but the subject is enough to keep me interested.

That said, this is the first book that I have read where I believe his writing gets to a new level. I can't quite put my finger on it, but the writing is better than ever before.

Can't wait to read the rest of the series!

Good book, it was a little bit slow at first

but once you learn the main characters it gets moving. it is truly believable the way that the town folk act.

well written, well read

I thoroughly enjoyed this well-thought-out book, very good character growth and plausible realism surrounding the telekinetic idea.

What a great find this series.

Not every post apoc has to be road warrior. Great world building and character based story style. was waiting for a preorder and grabbed this and already bought book 2. finished in 2 days. Solid read and really loved the first chapter and setup to how the story and world got made. clever.

A real well elaborate story & world

Its a really interesting book, the only sad for my part is that it is to short for my liking , but the story although fiction & fantasy has a well thought way and contrary to others although the power demonstrated by the protagonist might be awesome it is not overwhelming, yet smartly used. I hope i will enjoy the same way i enjoyed this one the next books
