I love, love, love Sasha. The conflictual nature of his mind, warring with his evil past and his desire for a humane future makes him an interesting and passionate addition to the revolution started in the first two books of the Mindjack Trilogy. He is the consumate bad boy trying to reform. And don't we women just love our bad boys? His loving nature is brought out by a waif-like newcomer, almost inspite of himself. I look forward to seeing more of him in the final book of the Mindjack Trilogy.

Don’t read any spoilers. You’ll want to know why this novella’s called the scribe, and the answer involves ethics, powers, brokenness and redemption in almost equal parts. Of the three stories in this set, this is the one I like most, the character I most want to follow, and even, in some ways, the tale that tells me most about this future society.
The writing is spare and beautiful, vividly descriptive without being slow, equally at home with the feather of a dove and the mightiest sword of a powerful mind, and smoothly convincing. I enjoy the author’s ability to invite readers into different minds and hold them there, to create a future and make it believable without long explanation, and to tell a good tale. Highly recommended.
Disclosure: The author gave me free ecopies of these stories when I expressed an interest in them.

Now this is Sasha's story and he has the most incredible power I've ever read. I'm not going to tell you what it is. His name "The Scribe" might give you some indication but it is a powerful thing and any of the Clans would want him. But he's escaped to Julian. He wants to never use his "power" ever again. It takes a piece of him every time he uses it and he's used it so many times under his old Clan leader who basically raised him. Now that Clan leader is back and he wants the helpless girl that's just fled to Julian. As Arlis, the Clan leader lays seige to Julian and Sasha's new base of operations, Sasha has to war with himself, can he use his power for good instead of evil and at what cost to him? Will he stay sane if he uses it this time?
I'm not really sure what Sasha's power does to him, but it's painful for him as well as his victim. Maybe because he's a good soul who's been forced to do so many wrong's. But I think he also has to see all the wrong's the person he is working on has done and it's painful and he gets afraid that he'll get lost in the craziness. But you'll have to see how he ends up and who helps him. This is a story I really wanted to read because once you read about his "talent" you don't forget it. He will stick with you in Closed Hearts. Most everyone will. I loved this story and seeing him find his peace and safety. Another excellent tide over until FREE SOULS comes out!
