Overview

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.

"Quinn paints a picture of a not-too-distant America where politicians inflame the hatred of one section of the populace for another--all for their own gain--and you worry that her world is not so far off from our own." -- Dianne Salerni, author of We Hear the Dead, The Caged Graves, and the forthcoming The Eighth Day

"Free Souls starts with a bang and doesn't let up. It blends nonstop action, nail-biting escapes, and great romance. I absolutely loved it! A great series conclusion--a must-read."-- Leigh Talbert Moore, author of Rouge and The Truth About Faking

Meet the Author

Susan Kaye Quinn grew up in California, where she wrote snippets of stories and passed them to her friends during class. Her teachers pretended not to notice and only confiscated her stories a couple times.

She left writing behind to pursue a bunch of engineering degrees (B.S. Aerospace Engineering, M.S. Mechanical Engineering, Ph.D. in Environmental Engineering) and work everywhere from NASA to NCAR (National Center for Atmospheric Research) to a little Venice Beach restaurant called The Green Bean (she was the bookkeeper). She has designed aircraft engines, studied global warming, and held elected office (as a school board member). Now that she writes novels, her business card says "Rocket Scientist and Author," and she doesn't have to sneak her notes anymore.

Which is too bad.

All that engineering comes in handy when dreaming up dystopian future worlds or mixing science with fantasy to conjure slightly plausible inventions. For her stories, of course. Just ignore that stuff in the basement.

Her middle grade boys clamor for more middle grade books with magic and gadgets and less teen novels with kissing. Unfortunately for them, she enjoys writing both.

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.

ALL THREE books were amazing! Usually in a trilogy, one or two of the books are "mesh" and then the story starts to lose its spark... but not the case with this book series...i loved all tree books..one never better than the other, just completely enthralled in the story, characters the writing... never a lull in the stories always captivating, always left me wanting more! Over the past six months, starting with The Hunger Games, i have been drawn to the dystopian world and read over twenty different books including trilogies. While i have come across some good ones, and am still anxxiously awaiting the sequels... this mind jacker series has blown me away. I cannot stress enough how this story always held my interest.such an original story line creating a whole new world, languafge...there was literally never a dull moment..never a point when i wanted to skip ahead or wished the story would just get on with it... i enjoyed every aspect of her writing...only wishing and wanting more of it. More detail, more twists, another book! The only downside if u can even call it that, is that i wished she brought Simon back around in some way on the later novels... he was so significant to Kiras fate yet once he was gone in book one, he was pretty much gone never to be heard of or mentioned again, not even as a memory. I think Simon should have always been in kiras awareness throughout. Also, Raf and Kira never did anything for me. By the time they were together as a couple, Julian was quickly introduced and their was an immediate draw and desire for the two of them to become more..which they did..thank goodness! Raf wasnt strong enough a character for Kira. Their love didnt have a chance to become a reality to the reader, he was in and out so quick..knocked out..missing..scribed ...etc., ,more often then not.. but this was ultimately a good thing for Julian and Kira so their relationship could grow and evolve. But once Raf or Simon were out...they were out. Too bad Simon and Raf didnt leave more of an impact or legacy throughout. No real closure for both Sinmon or Raf. Nonetheless.... fantastic story, would recommend to anyone with an interest in the dystopian world... much much better then hunger games, Legend, matched, Variant, Divergent, etc...u get my opinion. Thank you Susan for a fantastic read!

The third installment! After everything that Kira has gone through and she keeps on going. How do you do it Susan? I hope there are more stories in this world. A whole new world is opening up and Kira and Julian and Anna are on the beginning. Will Raf be a part of it now? Will more people join or will they come out of Jackertown? What will happen now? Great writing style. I have read all the other novellas and short stories that fill in some of the gaps and she is one of my new best authors! I can imagine the world and how many stories you could have in it. It is limitless! Each person has there own story!

There is some serious action going on in this, the last book of the Mindjack Trilogy. Things have gone from bad to worse for Kira and all mindjackers. The government wants every mindjacker locked up and the general population of mindreaders agrees. The government doesn't look at mindjackers as people, they only see them as a threat. Kira is more unsure of herself and her decisions and she struggles with what needs to be done. There are many, many twists in this book that I never saw soming. The ending was well thought out and amazing. I wasn't sure how everything was going to tire in together but the author did an awesome job. Love the book......loved the series. I am looking forward to reading more books from this author.

Though this was a good conclusion to the series, I wasn’t as happy with Free Souls as I was with Open Minds and Closed Hearts. It was slower in pace and really only focused on Kira. She was basically acting alone in everything she did. She was too independent. Almost to the point where she shut everyone out most of the time. And though I know she was burned in the previous novels, I think it would have been more intriguing if she had a true partner in Free Souls to work with. Maybe even someone to give her a hard time once and a while. Keep her in line. ;) Another thing I wasn’t thrilled with was the detail in the ops. I feel it slowed the pace of the action quite considerably. And with Kira being able to see into other minds, it sometimes felt dragged out with things that weren’t necessary happening to her. The last thing that bothered me were the inconstancies from the previous novels. There were a few things in Free Souls that I didn’t understand, nor did this novel explain how something was one thing in one book, yet something else entirely in the next. A good example was Senator Vellus. Though the odd twist (one I won’t spoil) was definitely an awesome concept, it was weird to me how no one even noticed his true identity. Not even Julian, who mindjacked the Senator in the second novel. The best part was the ending, in my opinion. I think it was perfect in its own way, even though it was definitely not what I expected or even wished for all the characters in this series. I will miss Julian and Kira! Mostly Julian. I really wish he was more involved in this novel. In any event, I highly recommend the series, because this is definitely a Sci Fi keeper!

Although I have loved the first 2 in the series (OPEN MINDS & CLOSED HEARTS), this one fell a tad short for me. Just a tad. Not that I hated it...oh no. Not at all. It just wasn't as great as the first two. I think it was the first half of the book which seemed to drag some. But still, I adored this book and where the author ran with the story line. It really is beyond different and unique and readers will love that about the series. Now there is a lot of action and suspense in the story, it just seemed that it all occurred in the 2nd half of the book. Which is great and all, but it seemed with everything going on, the pace of the book felt smidge rushed in the end. But the twists and the turns and the revelations are going to shock the readers. Double takes will be had…gasps will be heard…and mouths will be gaping. The conclusion to the story will leave the readers shocked to a certain degree…but I believe they will finish the trilogy with a happy heart and a smile on their face. Another aspect of the story I loved was the growing relationship between Julian and Kira. Oh how I love them so very much. And the pace the author took with them was spot on. The small moments we captured of them was so sweet and touching. It was perfect. So, so perfect! And maybe, just maybe, Quinn will give us readers a novella of them. Hey a person can dream (and hope and pray and cross fingers). Right?. Great ending to a great series. I just feel so honored that Quinn asked me to read and review her wonderful books. If you haven’t started this series yet get on it. You will love the storyline and how it differs from a lot of the stuff out there. Then come back and let me know what you thought of them all. I'll be waiting. ;)
