In 1981 psychics were secretly gathered in a classified military facility to "remote-view" enemy targets.  It didn't work. Project Grill Flame was disbanded.  Or so the public was told.  That was a lie.  Renamed Bright Gate, today it is a top secret operation few know exists. Its objective is to

Are you looking for a great book that will grab you by the seat of your pants and will not let you go until you finish the book? If so, Psychic Warrior by Bob Mayer is definitely the book for you. This fast paced, action packed thriller kept me glued to the pages from page one to the end.

The author did an excellent job of developing a story that was full of intrigue and plot twist. Yet, at the same time it was easy to read and follow. With the fast pace of the book and all the action it will kee

It seemed really well thought out plot wise. Until the end. It just felt rushed at the ending. But up to that point we see Doherty's experience at ease in the explanations of his story.

I will be reading the further books in the series, because I have an interest in this field to start with. So I wasn't put off by the ending, it just didn't feel right after the exposition of the rest of the novel.

Enjoyed the well crafted thriller. The olde American Soviet rivalry still resonates. The reader will be satisfied with the American point of view that our guys are fighting for good and the Soviets who played with dangerous technology are seriously flawed. Interesting use of evil within good narrative with excellent reflections of human foibles on both American and Soviet err Russian side.

The next war is usually won by the military with the new thinking. this is new thinking.

I didn't care for this story and stopped reading after the tenth chapter. The story is not "bad" or poorly written; I just don't like it. The violence/killing is too graphic and I am not comfortable that the military men are being forced to do things that they really feel are unsafe. Yes, I know members of the military are often put in unsafe situations (called war) but this is unsafe experimentation and they have no choice in the matter.

Moving story, but why would anyone choose to work for the New World Order!?

A bit far-fetched, but an involved and fun read. Looking forwards to the next volume in the series.

I loved this book. Loved the premise of a psychic soldier. Although the whole idea of the cyborg guy kind of was extreme.

A real spell binder!

Well, well do I have egg on my face. I was scrolling through books trying to find one that seemed to fit what I liked to read. Picked this one on a whim. After getting through the salad course of preliminary information the main course arrived. Boy! What a book. I was hooked! Read it all in one seating. Learning how to travel and traveling in a physic state to prevent destruction of nations starting WWIII a team meets with an opposing Chroyt who has his own agenda as well as

This was a great concept. Warriors not only able to remote view, but with the ability to travel to a location via the virtual plane. Talk about espionage capabilities. This one is a thriller and a major page turner. If you're into Ludlum with a twist, try this one.

Good story, interesting characters and concept. I liked how it feeds on the theories re: HAARP. I would love to see a sequel, I feel the story is unfinished.
I'm getting a little dismayed with Bob Mayer of late. His military paranormal books held my interest in the beginning, but the last couple books are sort of...meh!

A very frightening concept to think about. Good surely overcomes evil in this but at a horrific price.

Fascinating story

Fascinating story and very different from other books of Bob's that I have read. I'd love to know how much is fiction and how much is possible.

1.5 stars, as I read (but didn't manage to finish) the sample. I can't get over Mayer's style, it just doesn't gel for me.

Great story by one of my favorite writers! It is book one of a series, but stands on it's own well. A complicated, technical concepts made understandable and believable.
