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.

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

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. ;)
