Book Summary:

Eight months ago, Kira Moore revealed to the mindreading world that mindjackers like herself were hidden in their midst. Now she wonders if telling the truth was the right choice after all. As wild rumors spread, a powerful anti-jacker politician capitalizes on mindreaders’ fears and strips jackers of their rights. While some jackers flee to Jackertown–a slum rife with jackworkers who trade mind control favors for cash–Kira and her family hide from the readers who fear her and jackers who hate her. But when a jacker Clan member makes Kira’s boyfriend Raf collapse in her arms, Kira is forced to save the people she loves by facing the thing she fears most: FBI agent Kestrel and his experimental torture chamber for jackers.

 

First, I want to say how much I loved Ms. Quinn’s writing.  The flow was so smooth.  It’s irritating to read a book and find grammar errors or words being misused.  There was nothing in her writing that was distracting me from the story.  In my opinion, that’s a rare quality and it made the book very enjoyable.
This was a fun, fast read.  Although I haven’t yet read the first book I didn’t have any trouble following the story.  The story captured my interest and I didn’t notice time passing as I read.
In the Mindjacker world most people can read minds but a minority have developed the additional ability to control minds.  I thought the technology in the book was so interesting.  Ms. Quinn did a great job imagining how society would work if everyone could read each other’s minds.
Some of the themes in the book reminded me of X-Men.  The mindjackers (those who control minds) are feared and hated by those without that ability.  Politicians take advantage of that fear to further their own agendas.  But it is definitely it’s own story.
