I was contacted on Thursday regarding a promotion for a limited time free ebook offer from Amazon. I typically skim these over very quickly, and 99% of the time decide I'm not interested.
This was the 1% of the time that I was so intrigued that I decided to take advantage of the offer, and so I felt I should share it and let everyone else who was interested take advantage of it as well.
The Search for Artemis (The Chronicles of Landon Wicker, Book 1) by P.D. Griffith.
I looked it up on Goodreads and was impressed by its 4.06 rating and a comment from a reviewer that stated:
Like a cross between Harry Potter, X-Men and Ender’s Game.The actual synopsis of the book is as follows:
Fifteen-year-old Landon Wicker is psychokinetic, but the tragic unleashing of his abilities forces him to run from everything he knows. Alone, terrified and unable to remember the events that compelled him to flee, Landon fights to survive and understand what’s happening to him. He finds solace, however, in the company of hundreds of psychokinetics like him when he’s brought to the Gymnasium.Does that sound as interesting to you as it did to me?
Now in a world where extraordinary abilities exist; where people don’t just see—but control—the world around them; and where teenagers lift city buses with a thought, Landon struggles to accept his new reality and the guilt over his painful secret. But everything changes when a chance encounter with a mysterious girl propels him on a hunt for answers. After uncovering dark truths the Gymnasium would do anything to keep hidden, Landon is forced to choose where his loyalties lie.
Will Landon accept his past—and his future? Will he discover the truth? What’s hidden in the Restricted Tower, and who is Artemis?
