From the publisher—
THERE’S A NEW SUPERHERO IN TOWN.
By day, I’m just another high school girl who likes lip gloss. But by night I’m a Psi Fighter—a secret guardian with a decade of training in the Mental Arts. And I’m about to test those skills in my first battle against evil.
BAD GUYS BEWARE.
When I was six, the Walpurgis Knights, our deadliest enemy, murdered my parents. The Psi Fighters put me into hiding, and all traces of my existence evaporated. Then I went through the most accelerated Psi Fighter training possible. And now I go to your school.
’CAUSE I WILL TAKE YOU OUT.
Unfortunately, so do the bad guys. My parents’ killer has sent his apprentice to infiltrate the school to find me. And everyone is a potential suspect, even irresistible new kid, Egon, and my old nemesis-turned-nice-guy, Mason. Fingers crossed I find the Knight before he finds me…
Confession: when I first heard about this book, I had no idea what a “psi fighter” might be. Now I know…sorta. Well, maybe not so much but here’s the thing—I don’t care, not in the least.
On the surface, this is a science fiction thriller masquerading as a mystery and a romance and the whole thing is wrapped up in a ton of humor. For anyone like me who loves crossgenre fiction, this has it all and I’m so glad I didn’t let my lack of knowledge of psi fighters get in my way.
Psi Another Day is just plain fun, lighthearted entertainment that does precisely what it’s intended to do, entertain. Rinnie Noelle is full of snark and kickbuttness and I fell in love with her and the Kilodan and Andy and all the comic book superhero stuff they brought to each page. Yes, it really is like a great comic book and I don’t even like those things much ;-))
I do love superheroes, though, and I’m already thinking what a nifty movie this would make. Mr. Rosensteel has already given us a wonderful bunch of names to work with and I really hope he has lots of future installments in mind for us. I’m a fan for sure and Rinnie and the gang can’t come back soon enough for me.

writing anything but technical papers describing his theories of

device that turned her thoughts into weapons, and told him about a
secret society of protectors who trained her in their underground
Academy, he knew her story had to be written.
He has put his research on hold to document the adventures of a
girl whose face he’s never seen and whose real name he’ll never know.
