Mind Dimensions Omnibus by Dima Zales is a series I was happy to load on my Kindle so I could carry it around with me on my phone too and read it while at my appointments, etc. It's well worth purchasing and you can find the link here.
Below I have included the books description in the publisher's words:

This is the first time I have read anything by Dima Zales and I'm glad I was introduced to this author. If a book doesn't capture my attention in one or two sentences, I start to lose interest; however I will push through a couple chapters to give it a fair chance. However with this series I felt a connection to the characters right away and wanted to find out more. Dima writes well which is so important in developing a great story.
The main character Darren has a special gift that he feels alienates him from those around him. That perhaps he is not taken that seriously and as he grows up learns to hide his secret rather well. That is until he meets Mira who has the same abilities and things start to get more complicated, but also begin to make more sense. Darren learns that there are others like him and that he is actually a reader, which is like an out of body experience. He previously referred to these moments as the quiet.
Meeting Mira brings a lot of questions, but also danger to Darren life and changes everything he thought he knew about himself and those he loves. for instance what happened to Darren's parents and Mira's parents and why? Who can be trusted and who should you run for your life from? There are several main characters through out the book that play key parts. If you enjoy a good fantasy read then you will enjoy this series. Great for young adult readers as well! I'm not one that likes to give away a storyline but I can highly recommend reading this series and finding out what happens for yourself. :-) Enjoy!
