Sammy, a fourteen-year-old fugitive, accidentally discovers he has the powers of a Psion.

After months of instruction at Psion Beta headquarters, Sammy is selected to go on a stealth training mission. When the team is ambushed by the savage Thirteens, he is left for dead. Now, alone, he must survive in a hostile land. His search for help takes him deep into enemy territory and changes him forever.

On Capitol Island, Commander Byron discovers the possibility of a traitor in the Psion ranks. His son, Al, has become obsessed with learning the truth behind what happened during his failed mission. Meanwhile, Jeffie, Brickert, and Kobe struggle to deal with the aftermath of Sammy's disappearance.

The Silent War is at a tipping point; even one boy can be the difference.

But to do so, he must survive.

    Must read!

    This book was an excellent follow-on to Psion Beta. It answers a lot of questions and ties up a lot of the loose ends that the author wrote into the first book. It is just as interesting and suspenseful as the first book. I can't wait to get my hands on the next installment. Sadly, looks like I'll have to wait another year.

    ?

    It got really boring for me about 2/3 of the way in. The begining was ok though.

    DEFINITELY WORTH READING

    This is the second in the Psion series and it was well worth the wait. I enjoyed every page on the edge of my seat waiting for the next twist. I am looking forward to the next installment from Mr. Gowans. He is sure to be a force to be reconed with in the genre
