In a world where a gifted few can manipulate reality with their minds, two great nations—Calchis and Orion—employ these psionic powers in a covert war for global superiority. In the heart of Calchis, a young psion named Aaron is kidnapped and forcibly conscripted into the Calchan army. To the north, in the capital, a dastardly plan is hatched to decimate Orion, to be carried out by the ruthless operative known only as “Agent.” Meanwhile, across the vast desert that separates the two warring states, Orion recruit Stockton Finn finds himself thrown into a new world of incredible powers he has never dreamed of. And Orion officers Nyne Allen and Kay Barrett navigate the aftermath of their shattered love affair, oblivious to the fact that Calchis is drawing ever closer to destroying the tenuous peace between their two lands. Finally, in the arctic land of Zenith, Calchan archaeologist Faith Santia unearths a millennia-old ruin that may shed light on the history of psionic powers and a deeper mystery that could shake the foundations of all mankind.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from a brilliant start to a series well worth eating What a thrill ride! Levinson had me on my toes guessing right from the very first page. This is definitely an action packed novel. Even the downtime has a sense of urgency, pushing you forward. I thoroughly enjoyed how real personal issues combine with work and the overarching plot of the story to create a completely captivating whole. There are also a number of theories and concepts running as undercurrent to the entire story that make everything all the more vivid for the reader. Every element in this story serves to introduce the reader to this new world while taking them on the journey of a lifetime. By switching perspectives between characters from chapter to chapter Levinson is able to individually develop the major players in an intimate yet action packed manner, while simultaneously developing his multifaceted storyline. I was also struck by the characters’ names. They are simultaneously ordinary yet out of the ordinary. They stand out without making you rack your brain to remember, making everything that much more memorable. Levinson’s character development doesn’t stop with individual characters. He develops entire races, nations, and factions of people. This entire world is developed to the fullest. Levinson has created a uniquely multifaceted work that stands out in the SciFi genre. This is not a light read but it was definitely very enjoyable and well worth the time. I’d recommend it to any who enjoy science fiction with a twist.
