Join the TSS! See the galaxy. Travel to alternate dimensions. Try not to get killed.

Cris Sietinen, heir to the most influential Dynasty in the Taran Empire, was born with rare telekinetic gifts--abilities he refuses to ignore, regardless of the governing Priesthood's decrees. Determined to be true to himself, and test the limits of his abilities, Cris escapes his stifled life of business and politics on Tararia to begin a new life exploring the stars.
When Cris unexpectedly receives an invitation to join the Tararian Selective Service (TSS), the only organization to offer an official telekinesis training program, a new future awaits. It's his dream opportunity to be among people like himself, free from the Priesthood and political objectives. Except, Cris' path was designed, and he's right where the Priesthood wants him.

Architects of Destiny is the first installment in the Cadicle series, a modern-day space opera epic in the spirit of E.E. "Doc" Smith, Robert A. Heinlein, Frank Herbert, and Anne McCaffrey. This fast-paced space adventure with intrigue, coming-of-age and romance is a short prequel to the defining events in Tararia's history in the ensuing years.

From the Author:

Is it possible to change destiny? The Cadicle series follows three generations of the pivotal Sietinen Dynasty as each learns their part in an elaborately orchestrated galactic conflict. Torn by politics, love and war, the Cadicle and those he holds most dear must choose between duty and morality as the true nature of their purpose unfolds. Through their roles as Agents in the Tararian Selective Service, they will be on the front lines of space battles, but the political skirmishes they must face on Tararia could prove just as dangerous. The Cadicle holds the key to winning both, but at what cost?

  Volume 1: Architects of Destiny  Volume 2: Veil of Reality 
  Volume 3: Bonds of Resolve  Volume 4: Web of Truth  Volume 5: Crossroads of Fate  Volume 6: Path of Justice

Review:

★★★★★ "As an avid reader of authors like Anne McCaffrey and Elizabeth Moon, I especially enjoyed this book. It reminded me of the careful way they would build characters and make me really care about them, and their goals--even when no life or death action was occurring. I'm reading the entire series and loving it."   - M. D. Cooper, devourer of sci-fi books and NY Times bestselling author
★★★★★ "Reads like a classic from the masters."   - Tom Johnson, author of  "These Alien Skies"
★★★★★ 
"For this genre, this might be the best yet that I have read. Well done all on counts, plot, storyline, character development, pace, complexity, and drawing the reader in to become emotionally invested. [...] Wow, a great read!"   - Dennis Waller, bestselling author and Amazon Top 500 reviewer
★★★★★ "If you're looking for what I feel could possibly be 'the next big thing' in science fiction book series this is the place to start." Paige Boggs, ElectivelyPaige Blog
"DuBoff has subtly established an engaging and accessible world in which to tell her bigger tale with plenty of hints as to what elements it will contain. [...] This is a pacey and well written introduction which will stimulate imaginations."  - Allen Stroud, SFBook
"DuBoff is a bright new name in science fiction with wide scope and characters you truly care about."   - A. C. Hadfield, bestselling author
"Appealing characters and detailed worldbuilding draw the reader into a tale of politics, sabotage, kidnapping, telekinesis, and clones. [...] Drawing on classic science fiction themes from Dune, Ender's Game, and Firefly, DuBoff weaves together sympathetic characters, an intriguing plot, devious villains, exciting space adventure, and hopes pinned on a chosen savior."   - Publisher's Weekly
