    This is a wonderful book. The author has told the story of a young teen and his discovery that he has the abilty to move things with his mind, telekinesis. Hie entry into a world of psionics, people with other skills, is well written, engaging and slightly scary.  In other words, it is a wonderful book to curl up with on a cold winter's day with a mug of hot chocolate (which is not as satisfying as this book)!

    Most self-publishing authors, especially in their first works, p

    Most self-publishing authors, especially in their first works, play things safe by clinging to more or less cliched subjects and characters.
    They start out with a little backstory on the hero, and then comes a shocking revelation of some kind followed by the introduction of
    the antagonist(s). After this, the hero suffers some form of defeat before slowly crawling back up and emerging victorious in the end.
    It’s an easy model to follow and has proven successful so often new authors seem to feel comfortable sticking to it at first.

    This series is completely different.

    First of all, the ‘hero’ is no hero at all; he does not aspire to do great things, he does not see himself as some sort of vanquisher of evil.
    Nor is he the almost as overused reluctant hero, he is simply a boy trying to survive in a world which he does not understand.
    None of this in any way detracts from the fact that Adrian is one of the best-developed characters I
    have ever had the pleasure of reading about. Every one of this series’ quite many characters has their own personality,
    their own motivations and their own back story; all of them are believable characters who the reader can really get to know.
    But Adrian really trumps them all. Since the books are all written in an autobiographical style (which works really well in my opinion)
    Adrian is on every single page of the series. This gives the author plenty of occasions to truly develop his character and he
    has capitalised on that greatly; over the course of the several years that the series spans we witness Adrian maturing in a way
    I have not seen in any other book. By the end of the series the reader knows Adrian as well as he does himself and
    I found myself truly captivated by his story.

    As the preface will tell you, there is no ‘good vs. evil’ story in this world.
    Both sides so plenty of evil, and perhaps some good on the side. In the protagonist's words,
    “Good is whichever side you think you are on, and evil is whichever side you are fighting, or running from”.
    Again, there are no heroes, nor any true villains. Sure there are some people who want to do things some would consider evil,
    but they all have good intentions even if their methods may be flawed. This setting creates a moral stalemate through
     which Adrian and those close to him (and consequently, the readers themselves) seek to weave their way through.
    Especially in the later books, Adrian is faced with dilemmas of a sort most ‘adult’ novels would not dare touch upon.

    Because of this, as well as the great depth of the story, cast and setting, readers who have outgrown the Young Adult
    audience should not shy away from this series, nor should any parent haphazardly gift it to their children.
    Even though the protagonist is a teenager the themes and the way they are developed and displayed are darker than
    one might at first expect. It is as mature a series as I have ever read and it has my strongest recommendation to anyone,
     provided they can stomach some physical and emotional abuse.
     This series is not for the fainthearted, but everyone else will surely come to love it.

    Wild born is now free, and it would be an absolute travesty not to give it a chance;
    Adrian Howell is as skilled an author as I have ever seen and well-deserving of every single star I have given him
    above as well as every penny he earns from his works.

    Captured my attention from the start

    I absoluetly loved the book & is very capturing & well written. I could not put the book down... & that's saying alot from me. "Adrian Howell" was a very strong main character despite all the challenges in his life. This is a wonderful book especially considering it was free. I cannot wait to venture forth in this breath-taking series.WELL DONE" Adrian Howell " WELL DONE!
