Avoid series that cross authors, unless the authors were or became aware of the series identification eg. Also avoid publisher series, unless the publisher has a true monopoly over the "works" in question. So, the Dummies guides are a series of works.

About the author
Series description. How do series work? Helpers PocketSable 4. Series: Strykers Syndicate Series by cover 1—3 of 3 show all.
But a small percentage of the human population finds their DNA altered, leaving them incredibly powerful and unique. They are called psions, and brainwashed and put in service to the world government as soldier-slaves.
Their power comes at a cost, burning out more of their bodies with every use. Only the fortunate make it to the age of thirty five.
They are feared and hated by the humans, who regard them as dangerous vermin. Most of them are found early and pulled into the Stryker Syndicate, fitted with kill-switches controlled by the World Court. The ones who escape the Strykers are found and enslaved by the Warhounds, a rogue group of powerful psions serving a shadowy figure.
Threnody and Quinton are in disgrace, sent on an impossible mission.
Sci-Fi Fan Letter: Book Review: Terminal Point by K. M. Ruiz
Threnody is a Class III electrokinetic, able to move and alter electrical currents with her mind. They are the lowest team in the Strykers, considered liabilities but too valuable to discard. The Warhounds have beaten them to the target, and in the heat of the moment, the four Strykers face a choice from their target: die, or become part of an effort to thwart a conspiracy by a man who has his fingers in all the pies of the world. Everyone has a secret agenda, and the Strykers are the key that everyone wants.

Mind Storm is half superhero story, half thriller, all fun. While comparisons could be made to X-Men, the narrowed scope of the powers gives the author the opportunity to treat each psion in greater detail, without reducing them to a mere vessel for a cool power. Threnody and Jin Li, while both electrokinetics, each have their own personality and strengths, and watching their final battle is just cool.
Lucas and Nathan Serca, the two most powerful men in the universe, are shown with unique motivations and fears.
The humans are…very human. This is the first book in a series, and it will be interesting to see how the story develops. There are a few places where the decisions feel unfounded or the solutions too easy. Because the author provides such solid settings and motivations in most cases, these weaknesses are highlighted.
