SHORT STORY

Raf, a regular mindreader, is in love with Kira, the only girl in school who can't read minds. Raf struggles to keep his thoughts about her private, but secrets are something that only zeros like Kira can keep. As he works up the nerve to ask Kira to the mindware Games, his friends have other games in mind for him.

(Mind Games is a short story prequel to the novel Open Minds.)

“Raf is perfectly drool worthy, but shows kindness and loyalty to his friend, the girl of his dreams ... this is a tantalizing tidbit that makes the reader want more! And more is what you can have ... read more of Raf and Kira’s trials and victories in Open Minds by Susan Kaye Quinn.” - Indie Writers Review

"I loved Kira in Open Minds ... but getting Raf's POV in Mind Games was a real treat." -TwiMom101 Book Blogger

Mind Games is a short story in the Mindjack Origins series, which are companion stories to the bestselling Mindjack Trilogy. Mind Games is Raf’s story and takes place before the beginning of Open Minds.

Meet the Author

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.

    A zero is someone who can¿t read minds; in a world of mind-reade

    A zero is someone who can’t read minds; in a world of mind-readers that’s not something your best friend wants you to be. But all the wishing in this world won’t change the fact that Kira’s not gone through the change, while Raf hears all the world and all the corridors of school ring to the sound of his love for the girl who can’t tell what he’s thinking.
    Susan Kaye Quinn’s Mind Games introduces the teens of this curious world and nicely fills in how it might feel to hear, to know… to be cruel and to be wounded. Raf’s voice is convincing, torn between the lure of his future and the love of his past, trying to protect without letting himself seem too far out of place. He’s popular. He’s successful. He doesn’t quite know why students still study the fiction of a mind-blind past. And I want to know more.
    I want to know who Raf will take to dance. I want to know if Kira can tell what lies behind Jennifer’s smile. And I want there to be hope. By the end of this short story I’m mourning loss and eager to read more novels of the series. The story’s not complete, but the setup is after this enjoyably quick intriguing read. Mind Games introduces a young adult series with a fascinating premise, great characters and justifiably confident writing; it’s highly recommended.
    Disclosure: I was lucky enough to get a free ecopy of this short story.
