*REVIEW*

The Hunt for Pierre Jnr was a true sci-fi novel, with new technology and words put into the book. It is set in the year 2159, where psionics (people with telekinetic powers) are captured because of their unique powers. The most famous of these is Pierre Jnr - an eight year old who can manipulate others and control their minds too easily. In a way, this novel reminds me a little of The Darkest Minds - with the psi letter as their symbol. The main focus of the book is on the team assigned to catching Pierre and stopping what he is doing so that they can begin to understand why he is so powerful.

In all, this book wasn't exactly what I was expecting, and with all the jumping around from different scenes and perspectives it could be confusing at times. Apart from that however, this did have a mystery element which should keep you engaged enough. It was interesting to see examples of how Pierre Jnr affected people and the results his powers had on the community around him. The main characters also changed throughout the duration of the novel, as their mindset was altered and because of the experiences they had. The ending was a cliffhanger with an epilogue that leaves room for thought.

In conclusion, The Hunt for Pierre Jnr was a novel that should appeal to readers interested in science fiction with that mystery element. There's a case to solve and assumptions to be made, resulting in a satisfactory read.

This science fiction book starts off really well and the story is very interesting but....the ending is very confusing...a real letdown. Perhaps there is a follow-up planned which might explain the ending.

HASH(0x9eef0024) out of 5 stars superb science fiction July 7 2014
By Harriet Klausner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The Hunt For Pierre JNR
David M. Henley
Harper Voyager, Jul 1 2014, $16.99
ISBN: 9780732295608

By the middle of the twenty-second century, a small segment of the twenty billion humans residing inside the domes evolved with extrasensory mental powers. Derogatorily dubbed psionics by those who feared their superiority will allow dominance if unchecked; the World Union established the Services with a mission to control these dangerous mutants. The Services aggressively capture, isolate and incarcerate psionics on remote islands in order to inhibit the impact of psi skills and prevent a revolt.

In 2151 an experiment mated registered Psionics Pierre Sandro and Mary Kastonovich; which leads to giving birth to Pierre Jnr. Three months later, Pierre Jnr escapes and vanishes. In spite of a massive manhunt by the Services, he is not found and assumed dead as he is a baby even with special kinetic skills never remotely recorded before.

However, the worst nightmare of those in power surfaces in 2159 when a sighting of eight year old Pierre Jnr is confirmed by the Weave; as the legend of a psi with the uncanny ability to control others’ minds lives. The Services assigns the best psi hunters of the Primacy military wing abetted by telepath Peter Lazarus who surrendered after three decades of freedom beneath the radar to prevent the most powerful psi ever, who he believed caused his sister to suicide, from killing the world.

The Hunt for Pierre Jnr is a superb science fiction thriller that extrapolates present day issues like the environment and related moral and amoral responses into the next century. Rapidly changing points of view makes it initially difficult to follow who’s who, but also brings a fabulous frantic desperate pace to this character-driven yet action-packed futuristic thriller.

HASH(0x9ee76bd0) out of 5 stars need Book 2 Soon. April 9 2014

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Good characters and interesting premise. Shows people's fear and prejudices for a group they personally do not understand. Hope there is a Book 2 to finish what happens to Pierre Ken and the psi war. Enjoyable read

This was kind of weird. It started out quite well but I didn't finish the book. I lost interest when the boy kept adopting new 'mothers' who would eventually die.
