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.

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 ...

NRF: This was a very interesting story line, although the author did not go far enough in explaining the war and why some received special powers and some didn't. I really enjoyed this story and look forward to reading more of this author's writing.

Rebecca Weller: This book is gritty, and not for the faint of heart, as far as what you can expect the heroine Layla is put through, and yet there is a compelling and tender love story wrapped up in the darkness. An easy flowing writing style, I was drawn to keep turning the pages to find out if Layla and Adonis...
