The Council: A Psi’s Revenge

The Council: A Psi’s Revenge

While a young man's telepathic abilities grow, a hardened convict uses his powers to plan escape, and both seek revenge against a secret hit squad that's working within the largest territory of dystopian Western Australia in the year 2138.

Book One of After the Pulse

You come home to find your father murdered and the killers' cold and brutal thoughts suddenly flash inside your head. They're waiting for you...

Jatz is a low-level Psi working for the Company in southwest Australia's biggest territory, helping them rebuild society from near-extinction in the previous century before he's launched headlong into the hunt for his father's murderer and the desperate search for answers to his past and to his new abilities.

Dukan is doing hard labour across the territory as he slowly plots his escape, and his revenge. Wrongly-convicted, he keeps his telepathic abilities as secretive as his shadowy past, never knowing how intimately-entwined it is with Jatz's family history, nor that both seek the same sadistic killer.

Aided by new friends and his ex-boyfriend, Jatz will learn to harness power mankind has never known while stubbornly flinging himself into trouble while Dukan struggles to balance obsession with compassion for kindred broken souls like himself. They'll both need all the help they can get as they take on an internal hit squad, The Council, bent on toppling the territory's leadership and reforging it under the same man they're after.

Station Eleven meets The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo in this action-packed thrill-ride through dystopian Western Australia.

About the Book

This is my first novel that I’ve not only finished, but published. The sequel is written and will be published soon and the third in the series will be out later this year.

I originally wrote the first draft about 50% of the way through about 12 years ago after a particularly detailed dream. Then I got Lifed at super hard for a while and only got back to writing a year or so ago when my wife held my chin in her hand and said, “You’re a writer. And writers write.” So that’s what I did. And am still doing.

The cover design is by the wonderfully-talented and endlessly-affable Booksmith Design. Amazing to work with and the kind of relationship you want with the person that’s building such a vital aspect of your books.
