    Catspaw af Joan D. Vinge (serpentkills)
    serpentkills: The sequel to Psion, which is actually much better and quite a bit meatier.

His psychic powers are traumatically sealed away, until he's trained to use them to save the current economic system against an evil psychic super-power. Moderately entertaining...but ignores a major premise in the plot: the people with super psychic powers are basically ignored after their initial introduction. ( )

There was a time I really would have enjoyed a book like this. That time is past. One might say I 'outgrew' this kind of thing, but that would not be accurate, at least not in my case. It feels more like I have lost something, an imaginative capacity that allowed me to access what made these novels good, to me, then. ( )

Well-done but fairly standard coming of age. Orphan of the streets Cat is a powerful telepath, but doesn't know it, for reasons eventually mostly explained, and doesn't want it, since those with psionic powers of outcasts. He may live in the dark belly under the city where people with a credit line live, but it's better than being a freak. But circumstances force him to learn to use his powers and eventually help stop a rogue telepath. There are two more adult sequels.

"She'd gone ahead of me to help me, but it hadn't been personal. It was only a kind of reflex action, like pulling away from a flame; something you did to stop your own pain. I felt strange when I realized that; invisible. I didn't know what to think. So I didn't think about it for long."

Those are the thoughts of Cat: street-punk, orphan, and a telepath who has mentally blocked his earliest memories and his abilities.

I picked up "Catspaw" first--#2 in this trilogy. Halfway through that book, I got "Psion" and sped through it in a few days. I was so hooked, I had to come up with tricks to put the book down, so I could get some work done: promising myself I could read another chapter if I got a certain task done, telling myself the next scene would be lame.

Of course, none of the scenes were lame. Joan D. Vinge created an incredible combination of well-rounded characters, reflections on human nature, swift pacing, and complex world-building, all in 300 pages. I particularly liked that Cat is a believable criminal--hardened enough for living on the streets, but still young enough to be affected by the caring--or uncaring--of others. I see a lot of documents on juvenile delinquents, and Vinge's characterization felt very close to the truth.

Vinge also isn't afraid to show Cat as a loser--he makes terrible decisions, and pays for them more than others might, because of who he is. His struggle against the hard world he lives in, and his difficulty in finding his way, made his story utterly compelling. The only reason I'm not re-reading "Psion" immediately is because I'm dying to see how "Catspaw" ends.

Note: the "Special 25th Anniversary Edition" also includes the short story/novella "Psiren," a nice character bridge that takes place between "Psion" and "Catspaw." ( )

I believed that I may have read this book many years ago as I picked this up but I was happily surprised as I decided that I must have read something similar and then made the connection after I finished and saw the other titles that the author had written, including "Cat's Paw", which I'm certain I did read and enjoy. Cat is the protagonist and this book tells the tale of Cat's first adventures with his telepathic powers and coming to terms with his missing parents and mixed race background. ( )
