THERE’S A NEW SUPERHERO IN TOWN.
My name is Rinnie Noelle. By day I’m just another girl in high school who likes lip gloss. But by night I’m a Psi Fighter—a secret guardian with a decade of training in the Mental Arts. Kinda like Batman, but without the cape.
BAD GUYS BEWARE.
After screwing up my first mission, I’m now supposed to fix the problems at my school. Major, fly-catching yawn. Sure, drugs are bad, but what crime fighter wants to put bullies in detention when she can save the world from nefarious villains?
’CAUSE I WILL TAKE YOU OUT.
But things heat up fast. Now I have two guys into me—yummy new kid, Egon, and my old nemesis-turned-nice-guy, Mason. Plus, word on the street is that a Walpurgis Knight, the Psi Fighter’s worst enemy, has infiltrated the school. And everyone is a potential suspect, even Mason and Egon. Darn. Fingers crossed I find the Knight before he finds me…
Author D.R. Rosensteel said he gave up writing technical papers when a hoodied girl told him about a secret society of protectors who trained in an underground academy. Boy am I glad he listened. Psi Another Day, is a witty, fast paced book that effortlessly delivers one helluva crime caper. Unique in every way, it delivers to us an exciting new voice in YA fiction.
I was instantly sucked into snarky crime fighter Rinnie’s world, filled with high school drama and butt kicking secret identities. Delivered in a way that reminded me of an old school noir, and peppered with enough witty banter to keep your e-book highlighter working on over-drive, Rinnie’s story is sure to keep a smile on your face.
Seriously, with all the clone YA books out there Psi Another Day is like a breath of fresh air, followed by a swift kick in the butt.
Of course, what YA book wouldn’t be complete without a little romance. There was a bit of a “triangle” in this book but honestly it was subtle and in no way took away from the overall story. I found the character of Mason vastly more interesting than Egon but then again I was always a sucker for a wounded bad boy. My only complaint about this book was that at times I got lost with all the character names. Of which, there were a few out there names, Scallion, Munificent, etc. I found it hard at times to keep track of who was who.
In the end, I found this book to be highly entertaining, Rinnie, was an empowering, funny, seriously butt kicking female lead and I enjoyed going along with the budding gumshoe as she delved deeper into the mystery at the core of this story. There was a positive message, and for girls, I liked that there was not only a positive female lead but that she also had a great friendship with her friend Kathryn. Far too often YA books have female leads who are loners and it was great to see such an amazing friendship come to life on the pages.
Pick up Psi Another Day and be charmed by Rinnie and the world of the Psi Secret Society. You won’t be disappointed.
D. R. Rosensteel is a research consultant who had no intention of writing anything but technical papers describing his theories of metaphysical psychometry. But when a hoodied teen showed him a device that turned her thoughts into weapons, and told him about a secret society of protectors who trained her in their underground Academy, he knew her story had to be written. He has put his research on hold to document the adventures of a girl whose face he’s never seen and whose real name he’ll never know.
