Psi Another Day revolves around Lynn, a pyschic fighter from the Academy whose mission in life is to fight evil. Pretty cliche, I know but get this – even the opposite team is psychic and go by the term of Walburgi Knights. They are trying to get the secret location of the Academy (why?) and since everyone is in masks, this just becomes a mystery. There is kidnapping and drug rings involved but let’s not delve into that now. I was excited because dude, psychic weapons sounded so cool. You just create them from your mind, even the ones with unfortunate names. It is really frustrating when a book with a good premise turns out to be terrible and that is what happened with this one. I could get over the cheesiness of the names and the whole black-and-white thing, but for heaven’s sake, could the plot be reasonable? Of an entire Academy of trained psychic fighters, including the Four who are like Masters of the Mental Arts (unfortunate name, see?), only Lynn can crack down on the drug and child trafficking ring in her school? I mean, really?
Secondly, as much as a like a bad-boy-turning-good, I have a special place in hell for bullies. A bully cannot be justified as having a bad childhood, opting to third-grade tactics like pulling pigtails to get the attention of the girl – that’s no reason to pick on weaker kids, okay? Next, the characters – too many of them, no depth, boring and nearly everyone is predictable. Hell, I could even guess who the Scallion was going to be, and I wasn’t even in the story. But does Lynn get it? No, she goes for the non-obvious one because she doesn’t like them. This could have been a reasonably good book if not ruined by terrible storytelling. Sigh, not continuing with this series.
