Time for PsyQ is a super-engrossing science fiction novel penned by Marti Ward. Though it may seem that the book is intended for children and teenagers, I am confident adult readers will find it fascinating as well.

Marti Ward's Time for PsyQ revolves around Airlie Sanderson and her friends. On her eleventh birthday, she gets a cat as a present. She names him Sooty. Soon after, Airlie discovers that she has some special abilities. These abilities completely change the lives of Airlie and her friends, Yan and Lilly. However, Airlie's powers are truly put to the test when her friend, Kate, is kidnapped.

What kind of powers does Airlie have? Will she be able to understand them and wield them properly? How will her special abilities affect her life? Most importantly, will Airlie and her compatriots be able to save Kate?

Time for PsyQ had my attention from the very first page. The fast-paced writing style and the gradual buildup to the climax intrigued me. I loved how the special powers of the kids have detailed scientific explanations. Ward explains myriad scientific concepts in an easy and detailed manner without making the narrative monotonous. This is a testament to his storytelling talent.

The characters of Time for PsyQ are all well-developed. Airlie is a charming little girl who tries her best to help those in need. Her interest in science and her relentless quest to better understand her abilities made her my favorite. Yan, Lilly, Wendy, and Kate are all great kids with their own unique characteristics. Even Libby is able to mark her presence despite her short appearance. I loved all the pets. From Airlie’s cat, Sooty, and Lilly's spider, Parker, to Kate's dog, Goldie, Yan's dog, Nonsense, and Wendy's dog, Cocoa, all the animals won my heart. Among the adults, Inspector Johnathan Humble and Sergeant El Sanford are my favorites. Both of them always pay attention to the children and take their words seriously. Airlie's parents are very relatable. Though they support their daughter wholeheartedly, they make sure that their children's safety is the priority.

Overall, I truly enjoyed the first book of Marti Ward's Quantum Talents Series. I am excited to read the next book in the series and find out what lies ahead for Airlie and her friends.

I found nothing worth disliking in Time for PsyQ. However, I did find more than ten errors. I am sure a round of editing will easily fix this.

Keeping in mind the pros and cons, I rate Time for PsyQ 4 out of 5 stars. I had to take away a star because of the errors.

I highly recommend Marti Ward's Time for PsyQ to fans of science fiction novels and mystery books. I believe that adults and children alike will enjoy this amazing book.

Kids will surely enjoy this book about magic and superpowers. They will enjoy it because the main character is a kid; it will inspire and fascinate them. As an adult, I'm curious about how a kid will save a friend from kidnapping. I will definitely grab a copy of this book. Thanks for the review.
