Mindbender 5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Hapma More than 1 year ago
Mindbender was such an imaginative and exciting tale that I zipped through this book eagerly and excitedly all the way to the end. While this story is definitely sci-fi, the author did a magnificent job in keeping it realistic enough that you could visualize the planets, taste and smell the volcanoes of Io and feel the cold of Mars. Beyond these descriptions, we have a strong and powerful psychic, Taralyn, whose love for her adoptive daughter is so maternal that you can feel her pain when she thinks she has lost her. There is also the child, Gloriana, whose possession is so creepy that I was actually frightened of her, and our handsome hero, Asher, who you¿re not entirely sure you can trust due to his past but who does everything he can to help, for better or for worse. Add to that the persecution and discrimination of the people that Earth views as ¿dangerous¿, and you have quite a tale! My experience with sci-fi is limited, but Roxanne Smolen¿s gift with writing prose has definitely hooked me as a reader. I can¿t wait to read the rest of her books!
