Présentation de l'éditeur

SAVE when you buy the full Mindjack Trilogy (Open Minds, Closed Hearts, Free Souls)!

When you control minds, only your heart can be used against you.
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.

Biographie de l'auteur

Susan Kaye Quinn grew up in California, where she wrote snippets of stories and passed them to her friends during class. She pursued a bunch of engineering degrees and worked a lot of geeky jobs, including turns at GE Aircraft Engines, NASA, and NCAR. Now that she writes novels, her business card says "Author and Rocket Scientist" and she doesn't have to sneak her notes anymore. All that engineering comes in handy when dreaming up paranormal powers in future worlds or mixing science with fantasy to conjure slightly plausible inventions. Susan writes from the Chicago suburbs with her three boys, two cats, and one husband. Which, it turns out, is exactly as much as she can handle.

En savoir plus sur l'auteur

Susan Kaye Quinn started out writing middle grade stories like Faery Swap, but managed to publish a bunch of other stories first. She is the author of the bestselling young adult science fiction Mindjack Trilogy, as well as her grown-up SF serial, The Debt Collector. Susan's steampunk romance, The Dharian Affairs trilogy, is her excuse to dress up in corsets and fight with swords. Only now is she getting around to publishing one of her middle grade stories... and hoping her children will forgive her for waiting so long.

Susan grew up in California, got lots of engineering degrees (B.S. Aerospace Engineering, M.S. Mechanical Engineering, Ph.D. in Environmental Engineering), and worked everywhere from NASA to NCAR (National Center for Atmospheric Research). She designed aircraft engines, studied global warming, and held elected office (as a school board member). Now that she writes novels, her business card says "Author and Rocket Scientist," but she mostly sits around in her pajamas in awe that she gets paid to make stuff up.

All her engineering skills do, however, come in handy when dreaming up dangerous mind powers, future dystopian worlds, and slightly plausible steampunk inventions. For her stories, of course. Just ignore that stuff in the basement.

Susan writes from the Chicago suburbs with her three boys, two cats, and one husband. Which, it turns out, is exactly as much as she can handle. You can find her at susankayequinn.com

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent Sequel!!! 13 juin 2012
Par The Book Runner - Publié sur Amazon.com

I loved this one as much as the first. Closed Hearts takes place 6 months after Kira's rescue of some of the Changelings and she and her family have had to go into semi-hiding from angry Jackers. Kira and Raf still meet secretly, but (bad guy) Molloy discovers them and kidnaps them, taking them to Jackertown where a Rebel leader named Julian wants Kira to help rescue his sister Anna and some others from (bad guy) Kestrel. Kira has NO intention of meeting up with Kestrel again, but when Raf is taken, she is given no choice but to help.

Closed Hearts is filled with new Jackers with a variety of abilities and lots of double-crossing and betrayals. Kira does not want to be a revolutionary, she just wants to live her life quietly and be with Raf. Unfortunately, Readers are afraid of Jackers and all that they can do and the government has an on-going campaign to lock the Jackers up just like they did to Readers before. The government and LiveCasts use fear and propaganda to control the Readers into believing the Jackers are evil when in reality the evil lies within everyone willing to feed it. Even the Readers use Jackers against Jackers and have developed new technology to combat Jackers.

Kira and Julian work together to free his twin sister and many Jackers or Mages from Kestrel's new torture facility, but when they finally free Raf, he is not the same and this is sad! Julian is an excellent new character whose abilities are still unclear, but he seems to really like Kira. This was filled with harrowing rescues and narrow escapes comparable to Open Minds, so if you liked it, you should enjoy this one. I would have loved more time with Raf who was kidnapped most of this story, but I expect to see more of him and Julian in the next book called Free Souls which we are assured is coming soon.

Also, if you haven't read Mind Games (Mindjack Origins) which is written from Raf's point of view, do. It was my introduction to the series and Raf, whom I love.

Would I/Did I buy it? Yes (2.99)
Would I read it again? Maybe
Would I recommend it to friends? Yes

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Kira's a little frustrating 14 octobre 2013
Par Erin - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Closed Hearts was a good follow-up to the first, but it some ways it was sort of frustrating, because it felt like it used a lot of the same plot devices. She again feels like she can't love Raf--this time to protect him, but of course, she does it anyways. Again, she doesn't want to be involved in world-changing events, but she gets dragged into them (I suppose at least she stays true to character?). She gets lugged off to another secret government facility and AGAIN is shocked by the scope of it. Except this time, she gives in more easily to what happens to her. Maybe because she expects it at this point? I'm not entirely sure, but it's sort of frustrating. It made me want to shake her!

Essentially, I sort of wish that Kira would take less time to make the decisions we all know she eventually has to make. She seems to be in a state of denial, masquerading as a normal mindreader, pretending her family isn't in danger, and fooling herself into thinking she can take a job as a mindguard without practicing mindguarding/jacking (oh, and her employer is some kind of benevolent, protective grandfather type?).

It was decently action-packed, added to the world-building, and kept me entertained though, so three stars!

Open Minds (book one in the Mindjack Trilogy) was one of my favorite reads last year, so I was super excited to read Closed Hearts. Excited and a tiny bit nervous, worried that Susan Kaye Quinn would not be able to capture again the electrifying essence of the first book...I had nothing to be worried about! Not only does this second volume match the first in excitement, suspense, thought-provoking material and superb world-building, it goes beyond even the awesomeness of Open Minds.

It's been eight months since Kira Moore revealed to the world the existence of mindjackers like herself. Her family has been forced to go into hiding as the mindreaders' fears of mindjackers intensify. But Kira secretly continues to see her BFF and boyfriend Raf in secret. But when an old enemy shows up and Kira ends up in Jackertown among a group of mindjacking revolutionaries, Kira must go up against old and new foes to save the people she loves.

I had intended on reading Closed Hearts over the course of several days, but after muttering "Just one more chapter" after each chapter, I found that I had devoured the book in one sitting, simply unable to put it down. It's THAT captivating and "I gotta know what happens next!" inducing.

In this volume, Quinn continues to expand and explore the frightening, yet completely intriguing world she has created. Kira finds herself in Jackertown, among mindjackers who have been run out of town by mindreaders and I loved this new setting. Quinn adds even more layers to her already intricate and well-developed world by introducing this setting and the complex social issues it brings to light.

And one of the things I find most compelling about this series is how relevant and fresh the social/cultural/political issues are. The world in this series is quite different than our world, but Quinn deftly explores hot topics that mirror many of the ones our society faces today; topics that are really quite relevant in any generation. The mindjackers, people who were born different than most others, are ostracized, feared and punished simply for the differences they have no control over and Quinn crafts a very palpable and realistic look at how this affects Kira's society as a whole and how it affects people on a personal level.

The story itself continues to be very thought-provoking, but also immensely thrilling and suspenseful. I was completely enthralled by the difficult journey Kira must take in this book and all the unexpected places she ends up. There are quite a few exciting and well-written fight scenes and scenes of peril that had my heart racing.

Most of my favorite characters from the first book make an appearance in this one. Kira remains a very dimensional, engaging heroine who is easy to like and connect with. But as much as I love her, I really liked getting to know all the new characters Quinn introduces, especially the mindjackers in Jackertown. With these new mindjackers comes new and powerful jacking abilities, and I'm in complete awe of Quinn's imagination and innovative-ness.

My favorite new character is Julian and I'll admit that he has me all swoony! I love Raf, but there's just something so intensely captivating and endearing about Julian. I'll admit that when he was first introduced I feared that Quinn was setting up a love triangle between Kira/Raf/Julian, but it never felt like that. The feelings Kira experiences for both these guys come across has very natural and believable. She's simply a girl who is in love with her BFF and best friend Raf, but can't deny that she has a strong connection to Julian. There's an absolutely heart breaking event that happens and I'm excited to see what effect this has on Kira's love life.

I really love where Kira ends up by the end of this book, both the physical and mental/emotional place and I am dying to find out how this trilogy ends!

MY FINAL THOUGHTS: Closed Hearts definitely does not suffer from any sequel slump or second book disappointment. Instead, it surpasses the awesomeness of the first book, making it and the Mindjack Trilogy MUST reads!

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Still Lacking... 28 novembre 2012
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
First off let me say that I wasn't exactly in love with first Mindjack book. I found the concept interesting but it was lacking a lot of things. I gave it a second chance though and bought the second book.

The book was not disappointing, but it still had the same things lacking as the first book. I never really connected with Kira and never felt the love between her and Raf. I actually liked Julian a lot better even though he still remained a mystery at the end. This book takes place after Kira outs Jackers to the public and escapes from Kestrel. It starts off as portraying her as working as security detail for a rich guy with her dad. So immediately I was thinking she was some badass after discovering her abilities and everyone wanted her to work for them. Not so, that was maybe a few pages then she was off that job and working as a waitress (which she stayed there for like five minutes and left).

Turns out everybody basically hates her now - the Jackers for her outting them and making the government & public come after them - and the public for her being a Jacker. It is no surprise when she finds herself in trouble again and this time bringing in her father and Raf with her. This is when I started really not liking Kira. Not to ruin the story, but she actually isn't very special with her abilities and pretty much does nothing great the entire book. To me it seemed like the first book set her up as this soon to be hero that had these super abilities that would change the world and the second book brought her down to some girl that could jack a little farther than everyone else and who's mind no one could read. I got fed up with her getting mad at whatever situation she was in and act like she was going to do something great...then nothing. I understand making the hero seem more human and show they have weaknesses too, but couldn't she have done at least one thing that awed the reader and show she was special?

Overall, I was upset that the book didn't do anything to surpass the first one. It actually didn't accomplish anything but getting Kira into more trouble and having her narrowly escape. I still like the concept of the book and am intrigued by the other special Jackers (Julian and his gang). I will probably read the third book because it wasn't a bad read. Just not one of those great ones that will be made into a movie and have a huge franchise of clothing and other merchandise. If you're into this genre and have read all of the great books out there, then by all means read this trilogy. Like I said, it's not a bad read...just not a great one.
