Psi Chronicles #2: Archon by Lana Krumwiede

Archon (Psi Chronicles, #2)The city of Deliverance is a mess after Taemon got rid of all psi. Many citizens can't accept it and live with the hope of psi's return. After months, Taemon discovers that he is the only citizen who still has the power to use telekinesis and clairvoyance. He also hears that his father was taken to the Republik to help them prepare an army, so he sets out over the mountains to rescue him. Taemon finds the Republik has an army of archons, soldiers with psi, but he is no match for them. His left side is paralyzed, and it gets worse when he uses psi. The son of the Republik's general agrees to help, but getting into the enemy's fortress will be much easier than getting out.

This book is the sequel to The Freakling, and I enjoyed the plot. Taemon possessed great power in book one, but his injury in this book made his power unpredictable. The plot built up to an exciting climax. The time within the fortress created suspense. The end of the book seemed a bit rushed as they prepared for an invasion. The whole battle lasted four to five pages, but I liked the book overall. There will definitely be a book three.
