Magnius Zoleki has everything a fifty-year-old man could want -- except the psionic assassin trying to kill him. In 2310, humans persecute psions and hunt them to extinction regardless of guilt. Magnius is one of them: an evolutionary offshoot of mankind known for their psychic abilities and tendency to murder in order to utilize their power. Despite using his telekinesis sparingly, his secret makes it back to his childhood tutor. She murdered his best friend's father in cold blood, giving him every reason to run away before his abilities manifested. Now with the hope he'll join her cause to strike down humanity, she sends an assassin to bring him home. Of course, that doesn't mean he needs to bring him in one piece. As a consequence of his double life, Magnius faces divorce, bankruptcy, and death--but not necessarily in that order. In his flight to survive, he meets Amii Martin, a woman who recently lost her memory in a laboratory accident. She implores him for help rescuing the only man with ties to her past after relations with a benevolent alien race take a tragic turn. The last thing Magnius needs is to get mixed up in an ugly war, but in order to escape the clutches of his nefarious mentor and save Amii's father, he's willing to risk it or die trying. Astra: Synchronicity is the first novel in the Astra trilogy, a story that follows in the epic tradition of Cyteen and Dune.… (mere)

the description on shelfari says the romance is like the romance of the time traveler's wife, umm no. sorry. you will be disappointed if you think the romance in Atsra is anything like the grand romance in the time traveler's wife.

i love this book. a new sci-fi series to read, YAY me!

The dislikes/annoyances-
1. the title- kinda awful-
syn·chro·nic·i·ty/
Noun: The simultaneous occurrence of events that appear significantly related but have no discernible causal connection.

yes, that is what happens in the book but really isn't that what happens in every story that starts with a group of characters that seemingly are not connected but then end up being connected in more ways than one.
and Astra is the galaxy system i think. i thought at first it was a planet or a union of people but nope its the solar system or something that the planets are located within i guess, still not too sure. Astra is mentioned but not that often.

2. the cover- kinda sucks. the Astra in robot font is cool, but makes it hard to read the title. the planet or moon or whatever background is blah.

3. wow umm can't think of a third... oh i can but it gives a plot point away. i found a certain act kind of not in character with how the people were described originally. made it hard to believe.

The likes/loves
1. everything else- but really where to begin oh number 1 love- psychics! as a fan of Mccaffrey's Rowan and Pegasus series it's nice to see another sci-fi series with psychic talents.

2. there a so many bad guys and good guys that are not like black and white meaning there is some good in them and some evil. you can sympathize with their causes/opinions and see their point of views and be like "okay i see why you are doing this. it 's wrong and morally reprehensible, but i see your reasoning."

3. political intrigue, galaxy wide civil war, violent racism or species-ism (i mean it's against the psychics i dunno what you call it), romance, mysterious pasts, ambiguous portents, and the always fun-a beautiful super talented amnesiac.

oh and i read a lot so i think i figured out Amii. can't wait to read the rest of the series to see if i guessed correctly. i might actually buy it *gasp* this one was free. ( )
