Free Souls by Susan Kaye Quinn ~ My Thoughts


Free Souls

Free Souls by Susan Kaye Quinn
Series: Mindjack #3
Print and e-book, 318 pages
Published December 14th 2012

When your mind is a weapon, freedom comes at a price.

Four months have passed since Kira left home to join Julian's Jacker Freedom Alliance, but the hole in her heart still whistles empty where her boyfriend Raf used to be. She fills it with weapons training, JFA patrols, and an obsessive hunt for FBI agent Kestrel, ignoring Julian's worries about her safety and repeated attempts to recruit her for his revolutionary chat-casts. When anti-jacker politician Vellus surrounds Jackertown with the National Guard, Kira discovers there's more to Julian's concerns than she knew, but she's forced to take on a mission that neither want and that might be her last: assassinating Senator Vellus before he can snuff out Julian's revolution and the jackers she's come to love.

Free Souls is the third novel in the Mindjack Saga, a young adult science fiction series. There are three novels in the original trilogy, five novellas that accompany the series, and plans for another trilogy in the works (see Susan’s latest novella, The Locksmith, for a peek at a new Mindjack character for the coming trilogy – or better yet, subscribe to her newsletter, and get The Locksmith for free!).

Mindjack Trilogy (novels): Open Minds, Closed Hearts, Free Souls
Mindjack Origins (shorts): Mind Games, The Handler, The Scribe, Keeper

The Locksmith is a standalone novella that can be read independently of the trilogy and novellas.

Book #4, Locked Tight is expected to be released soon.

My thoughts about Free Souls ~~

(I love to note the first lines of the books I'm reading. First lines can really grab a reader's attention and I love seeing where the author takes the reader after their first lines.)

First line—"Julian's whispered words drifted past my ears and disturbed the dead quiet of the street, still hushed by the early morning hour. 'You don't have to do this, Kira.'"

I have fallen in love with every single book that this author has written! And I especially love her Mindjack series. I have been hooked on this series from book #1, Open Minds.

I have loved following Kira throughout this series, from the beginning when she finds out that she has special mind powers and as she learns what that means to her, to her family, and to the world. She develops those powers and becomes an amazingly strong force in the jacker world. Free Souls is an exciting ride for Kira, and the reader.

Book #4 is coming soon and I can't wait to continue with this awesome series!
