I have thoroughly enjoyed this first book in what is sure to be a series. It had better be or I will be after the author personally. An easy read with a well constructed plot that kept me engaged to the abrupt end. I will wait for number two with some impatience if it is not already available. Peter Eerden

3.0 out of 5 stars The Hunt for Pierre Jnr 22 September 2013
By Dr Barbara L Blades - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars need Book 2 Soon. 10 April 2014

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

2.0 out of 5 stars Weak 11 May 2014

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.

This book pulled me along steadily, with a nice build of tension. Interesting characters, great premise and definitely left me wanting more at the end.

3.0 out of 5 stars Something different in the sci-fi genre 27 September 2013
By Genie - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Pierre Jnr was born from a breeding and development program for psionics.
Pierre Jnr was born to Registered Psionic Pierre Sandro Snr, and Registered Psionic Mary Kastonovich.
Three months after his birth Pierre Jnr escaped and was lost to surveillance an hour later.
Pierre Jnr is eight years old.
He can make people forget.
He can control people like puppets.
He is a kinetic of unprecedented strength.
Pierre Jnr is confirmed alive on April Seventh, 2159.


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.


I received a copy of this book through the Goodreads 'First Reads' program and this does not affect my review
