The year is 2218 and the galaxy is at war. The thing is, very few people know it. Certainly not twelve year old Cindy Parker, a seemingly ordinary girl attending a very ordinary school on an idyllic but dull outer planet. Cindy is more concerned about getting through the day avoiding the taunts of her classmates (led by the reprehensible Jacinta Pembroke) and the disdain of her icy teacher, Ms Primp. Little does she know that a series of events will soon lead her to a hidden facility belonging to a top secret, galactic spy agency (the Galactic Central Council Spy Corp, or GCCSC) where she will train to be a spy. Along the way she’ll discover she has some intriguing hidden talents that she will ultimately use to save all of humankind. Set in a future where planets are terraformed for purpose, humanity has escaped the shackles of earth and travels freely within the galaxy, and all is seemingly harmonious, Cindy Psi: Intergalactic Spy tells the story of an ordinary girl with an extraordinary talent.

Prologue

Everyone knows the big stories about Cindy Psi, intergalactic adventurer and spy, noted diplomat, and reasonably adept pastry chef. We all know how she saved the galaxy (several times), brought an uneasy peace between humans and Turgs, rescued the Supreme Grand Councillor from vicious space pirates in the Theta Sector, and came third in the 27th Annual Oliver County Bake Off. Her unique skills in espionage – and other things – are a matter of public record.

This is not that story.

No, this is the story of an ordinary girl, growing up on an ordinary (if quite small) planet, at the boring end of the Galaxy, about 30,000 light years from Galactic Central Point (you know, Galactic Central Point, where the Galactic Central Council sits, where things happen). It’s the story of the girl who would become Cindy Psi, and it starts on an ordinary Tuesday, on an ordinary bus stop, and it’s raining ...

Sara Huppman: My only pet peeve was that there were spelling errors. In one of the last chapters there was a mistake it said Melanie handed the hanky back to Chrystal. It was supposed to be Jess.

Jasmine Chow: As I read this story, I was reminded some what of Terry Pratchett, especially some descriptions of politics and economics. The sci-fic setting is quite intriguing. Writing style is quite lovely and grew on me slowly. I was also slightly reminded of Mark Twain, especially his book A Connecticut Ya...

Maja1111: Nice, plot, great characters, lots of metaphors. Something really worth reading. Great!

Drew C. Elyon: I've only read one chapter so far, but from what I've seen, this is steampunk at its best. The narrative flows so beautifully I could envision every scene in an almost cinematic fashion. I believe in the complexity of simplicity, and this story has that in its descriptions.

dancegirlcali: This is the first book I read on Inkitt and I have to say I loved it! The plot was decent and executed nicely. It was a solid length and I got it done quicker than I expected.

Profezzer: This is a prequel of sorts to a much larger drama that happens a couple thousand years in the future. The Olafson saga is as good as any I have read and ranks up there with some greats in terms of plot and the construction of her universe. Her one detraction is spelling and punctuation but do n...
