Cindy Psi: Spy In Training

Blurb

The year is 2218 and the galaxy is at war. The thing is, very few people know it. Certainly not twelve year old Cindy Parker, a seemingly ordinary girl attending a very ordinary school on an idyllic but dull outer planet. Cindy is more concerned about getting through the day avoiding the taunts of her classmates (led by the reprehensible Jacinta Pembroke) and the disdain of her icy teacher, Ms Primp. Little does she know that a series of events will soon lead her to a hidden facility belonging to a top secret, galactic spy agency (the Galactic Central Council Spy Corp, or GCCSC) where she will train to be a spy. Along the way she’ll discover she has some intriguing hidden talents that she will ultimately use to save all of humankind. Set in a future where planets are terraformed for purpose, humanity has escaped the shackles of earth and travels freely within the galaxy, and all is seemingly harmonious, Cindy Psi: Intergalactic Spy tells the story of an ordinary girl with an extraordinary talent.

Prologue

Everyone knows the big stories about Cindy Psi, intergalactic adventurer and spy, noted diplomat, and reasonably adept pastry chef. We all know how she saved the galaxy (several times), brought an uneasy peace between humans and Turgs, rescued the Supreme Grand Councillor from vicious space pirates in the Theta Sector, and came third in the 27th Annual Oliver County Bake Off. Her unique skills in espionage – and other things – are a matter of public record.

This is not that story.

No, this is the story of an ordinary girl, growing up on an ordinary (if quite small) planet, at the boring end of the Galaxy, about 30,000 light years from Galactic Central Point (you know, Galactic Central Point, where the Galactic Central Council sits, where things happen). It’s the story of the girl who would become Cindy Psi, and it starts on an ordinary Tuesday, on an ordinary bus stop, and it’s raining ...

ElusiveBadwolf: I loved this book so much! It's a shame that i already came to the end of this. I really enjoyed the story, and i liked it how everything became in the end. It was a great book and i can say that you are a great writer too. Keep it that way and i think you can make it in the writing business!

Laraine Smith: This should be a movie! You are talented! It is that good! Keep it up! It is visual! It grabbed me! Don't give up!

re8622: The Last Exodus quickly grabbed my attention. Almost as soon as I started reading the story, I couldn't put it down. I found that the ideas the author put forth were very thought provoking given the turmoil we have seen gradually rise over the last several years. I felt that I could understand th...

Dru83: This is the second or third time I've read this one and I just love it. It has just about everything you could ever want packed into one scifi story. It still has some parts that are a little rough in terms of grammar, punctuation, and word usage, but it's still an awesome story. I love how detai...

Jasmine Chow: As I read this story, I was reminded some what of Terry Pratchett, especially some descriptions of politics and economics. The sci-fic setting is quite intriguing. Writing style is quite lovely and grew on me slowly. I was also slightly reminded of Mark Twain, especially his book A Connecticut Ya...

cassandrab: Delightful SciFi (for a change)! I am not a SciFi fan: mostly the genre is far too dystopic for me. This book (written by a high-school friend) is, on the other hand, generally upbeat. Yes, Earth's future is threatened. But Earth has a chance to plan a response. And (spoiler alert) ultimately win...

redvemon808: I certainly liked it. It has a way of making you want to read it over and over. The different characters and how they come together in this book is remarkable. I can't wait to see what this author puts out next.

jodie456: I started reading this book because of the great cover. I found out you CAN judge a book by it's cover!This wonderful story is fresh, exciting, and intense. The story was even better than the great cover! Matthew Thrush's characters are so real, you will find yourself missing them when you are fi...

rafajogosmmo: If the second book was not free I would buy it even if I am poor, the book got me hocked all the way to the finish. I hope the second one lives up to the first, I really do.The only problem that I had with the book is that it is a bit confusing to know the side characters, I would get confused be...

amarin8388: Bottom Line: I thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys Science Fiction. During my reading, I thought many times that this would make a good story for a movie. It reminded me of the StarWars movie franchise, not because of the plot but because of the diversity of chara...

Profezzer: This is a prequel of sorts to a much larger drama that happens a couple thousand years in the future. The Olafson saga is as good as any I have read and ranks up there with some greats in terms of plot and the construction of her universe. Her one detraction is spelling and punctuation but do n...

usubitha1: I always hesitated to read a science fiction novel. But this one was different and unique for me. I liked the plot of the story as well as the characters of the story. The story is a satire of governments and countries. It possible that humans will themselves will responsible for their destructi...

ericaporamoralcine: La trama es muy interesante y original y eso ya dice muchísimo cuando todos tratan de triunfar con ideas ya trilladas.No puedo opinar en detalle sobre la gramática, porque a pesar de entender el inglés a la perfección, la falta de uso en cuanto a lectura y diálogo hacen que me maneje bastante mal...
