    This novella gives us more insight into a significant character

    This novella gives us more insight into a significant character that shows up in Book 2 of the Mindjack Trilogy, Closed Hearts. It makes Julian more available and the charismatic young revolutionary becomes more powerful through this story. I can't wait to see what he does next in the final book of the Mindjack Trilogy.

    How would it feel to read minds, to see emotions in color, to manipulate thoughts? How tempting would it be to use such powers for ill? And how quickly would the authorities try to appropriate such skills for themselves once they appeared?
    Susan Kay Quinn’s novella, The Handler, doesn’t answer all the questions, but it lets the reader see through a different pair of eyes, think from a different background and history, and enter a different world. With beautiful writing, vivid imagination, fast action and pleasing relationships, these short stories build a world where much can happen, and leave the reader satisfied even though much is yet to be told.
    Disclosure: The author gave me free ecopies of these stories when I expressed an interest in them.

    The Handler started off a little choppy to me, probably because it's been awhile since I've read Closed Hearts, but it fell into place pretty quickly. In the Mindjacking world, where this new ability has just been outed, one can never be too careful. There are so many abilities out there that even Julian doesn't know about and it's hard for him and his sister to protect themselves from every threat they can imagine. What he doesn't expect is the beautiful desperate girl that comes through his door disarming his sister without even jacking her. And try as he might, he just can't get a read on her, it's like trying to grab a hold of a slippery fish with greased hands. And then his recruit he was expecting, the one that is skittish and ready to run shows up. And Julian has to make a decision, one that he'll probably have to make time and again in his new revolution. He just wasn't expecting to have to make it on the very first day. This is a fast paced novella that gives you a glimpse into the way things started before Kira joined the group. It gives some background information on how Julian chose and who he chose and why. In any case, it's a great little piece of fiction in the series to hold you over until the third book FREE SOULS comes out!
