Locked Tight by Susan Kaye Quinn ~ My Thoughts


Locked Tight

Locked Tight by Susan Kaye Quinn
Series: Mindjack Series #4
Print and ebook, 265 pages
Published April 17, 2017 by Susan Kaye Quinn

In a world filled with mindreaders, being a mindjacker is a good way to end up dead.

And Zeph is no ordinary jacker.

He can break open the toughest minds—or lock the weakest ones—but that just makes him a weapon every jacker Clan wants to control. To keep his family of mindreaders safe, Zeph does what his Clan leader says and tries to shut out the screams—but when jackers are revealed to the world, he has no choice but to hug his kid sister goodbye and leave home.

Passing for a reader is something Zeph does well, but when readers start changing into jackers and his family disappears, Zeph must return to a city filled with jackers who hate him, trick a mindware CEO into helping him, avoid a girl who knows him too well, and spy on the most powerful jacker in the state.

All without dying or revealing his abilities—or being caught in the firestorm of hate between jackers and readers that’s threatening to pull the world apart.

The bestselling Mindjack Series continues with an all new character and a world of mindreaders and mindjackers as you’ve never seen it before. Locked Tight is the first of three Mindjack novels from Zeph’s perspective. (See The Locksmith for Zeph’s origin story.)

(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—"The peace and quiet never lasts. A scream makes the birds scatter from the trees."

I love the Mindjack series and I was so excited when I heard that Susan was writing more Mindjack stories. Everything in the series so far takes the reader on an intense, unusual adventure.

Locked Tight, book #4 is more of the same. This part of the series, which will consist of 3 books total, gives us a look at Zeph's world, a world of jackers and readers. Can they get along or will they destroy each other?

The very first chapter in this book grabbed me and and the whole book had me reading late into the night. This series is just so good! I loved how we see glimpses of the previous books and characters in this series incorporated into Zeph's story. Zeph's world has to deal with the fallout from what happened in the past, as the readers and jackers change and struggle with right and wrong.

I love this whole series and will be waiting with baited breathe for more!
