SCHOOL FOR PSYCHICS

by Archer, K. C.

This novel launches a new series, featuring a funny, impulsive and sometimes self-congratulatory young woman who discovers she has psychic abilities, and then must decide whether she will use her skills for good or for ill. An epic debut, which combines adventure, mystery, and romance to transport readers to a daring and inventive world never before seen on the page. The suspense is electric; the action nonstop and the characters are colorful, and complex.

Twenty-eight year-old Teddy Cannon isn’t your average young woman. She’s resourceful. She’s bright. She’s scrappy. She can also read people with uncanny precision. What she doesn’t know, but will soon find out: she’s psychic.

At the School for Psychics students are trained like Delta Force Operatives: it’s rigorous, cutthroat, and secretive. Graduates go on to serve at the highest level of government and law enforcement, where they use their skills to protect the world. Teddy learns telepathy, telekinesis, investigative skills and SWAT tactics. She befriends Lucas, a rebel without a case who can start and manipulate fire; Jillian, a hipster who can mediate communication between animals and humans; and Molly, a hacker who can apprehend the emotional state of another individual.

But just as Teddy feels like she's found where she might belong, strange things begin to happen: break-ins, missing students, and more. It leads Teddy to accept a dangerous mission that will ultimately cause her to question everything—her schoolwork, her friends, her family, and even herself.

This epic debut combines adventure, mystery, and romance to transport readers to an inventive world never before seen on the page. The suspense is electric; the action nonstop and the characters are colorful, and complex. Teddy is an unlikely, and sometimes unlikeable, hero. She drinks, she smokes, and she flirts…often heavily. She doesn’t always make the right choices. And ultimately, she must choose whether she will use her skills for good, or ill.

SCHOOL FOR PSYCHICS will appeal to a generation of readers who grew up pouring over HARRY POTTER and THE GOLDEN COMPASS, flipping through X-MEN, and binging on the X-Files.
