I really enjoyed the first two books in this series and I still don't get why I waited so long to start the third book. It might have somethign to do with the ending of the second book and it might have something to do with having so many books to read that sometimes I just forget about some of them. So I was in this weird reading mood, I wanted to read, but I wanted to make sure it was a book I would enjoy. And then I rememberede this unfinished series and I decided to finally read Free Souls.

Free Souls is a book I have been looking forward to reading, but has also been tinged with sadness, being the last book in this trilogy. Free Souls picks up where Closed Hearts ended, Kira, Julian and the rest of the jackers are still trying to find a way to make it safe for themselves andotherjackers. Unbeknown to Julian, Kira is still looking for Kestrel and she will stop at nothing to ensure he gets what he deserves. I loved the ongoing list she has of ways to kill him and was amused by some ...more

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 ...more

I was very lucky and very pleased to be one of the first people to read this last book in the awesome Mindjack Trilogy. Seriously, I was dancing around when the almost final draft hit my inbox.

So what do I have to say? I loved it. Truly. It rates right behind the first book in the trilogy, which is one of my all-time favorite books. This is a fitting end to the trilogy with lots of action, character development and a very smoldering kiss.

One of the things I do really like about this series is t

Susan did it again. Free Souls was WOW! I expected Kira to step up to her role as heroine but not like this. Even though I'm good at guessing, few events turned out anywhere near how I thought they would. The closest I came to a prediction was the romance that started early on and a pattern of setbacks building to the middle crises. Throughout the book, serious action and plot twists kept me riveted. Surprises kept coming until the very end which tied up more loose ends than I knew existed. Whew ...more

So excited for the release!
I'm not usually "team secondary romantic male interest", and have never really understood it. But, so help me, if Raf makes a miraculous recovery and Julian gets pushed aside I might loose it! ;)

Reader thoughts: I was quite pleasantly surprised to discover how much I enjoyed this end. Usually I have major issues with ends, esp of series (too many die, no one dies, the MC acts OOC, the MC acts weak, there's deus ex machina, etc). None of that happened here.

Kira is torn between keeping the jackers safe, keeping her family safe, keeping the changelings safe, and keeping herself safe. She has conflicting loyalties and dangerous secrets. Can she let herself love Julian when her heart still h

ABOUT THE BOOK: When your mind is a weapon, freedom comes at a price.

The final installment of the Mindjack Trilogy is here!

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 atte

Wa-hoo! The final installment of the Mindjack Trilogy! I've been loving this series and I'm so happy that Susan allowed me to read and review Free Souls for her. She has done a remarkable job with these books. I just love them. Oh. Have I said that already?

This series has all the great elements that I look for in a book. There is action and suspense, good character development, believable relationships and dialogue and that bit of romance that my heart craves. The constant action and energy in t

If you're looking for an action-packed, intense thrill ride into an intriguing dystopian future - this is it! The plot was riveting, the characters truly identifiable and the setting undeniably unique and impressively detailed. I love not being able to predict where the story will go, and Susan did not disappoint! Clever twists and turns were expertly placed throughout this series, holding my rapt attention (to the detriment of domestic duties). The entire Mindjack Trilogy pulled me into its wor ...more

Weee!!! Finally finished the series and it was THE BEST!..:3 This last installment of the Mindjack series was highlighted with great sci-fi action, drama, suspense and of course, romance. Honestly though, there ware some parts that i thought was quite dragging but the author did a great thing in making the plot and story go forward in a more thrilling way.

I started reading this series for two reasons. One, the covers are amazing. Seriously, look at all three of them. The covers hooked me and made me squirm with possibilities. Yes, I'm a sucker for a good cover.

Two, I'm pretty sure the virtual box set was on sale and I saw an ad for it. I say that because if Susan Kaye Quinn happens by I want her to know that the sale, and the ad, worked. I'd never heard of her until I saw the ad, with that cover, and clicked the link which brought me to the sale.
Won as a first read. What a great end to the series!! I love how Susan makes her series seem so possible, which gives the story an extra thrill. I couldn't put this down once I started because I just had to know what came next. Quinn keeps readers on their toes wondering what's going to happen next and holding their breathe rooting for Kira and her gang. Kira is such a strong female protagonist and the book just pulls you in. Five stars from me but don't pick it up unless you have time to read a ...more

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.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

This is the final installment in the Mindjack Trilogy that has taken me on a wild rollercoaster ride. Kira and the rest of the "jackers" have their final showdown, resulting in a world that no one could have predicted.

Kira is still somewhat of a mess. She's with the JFA but she still grieves for her lost "normal" life with Raf and her family. Her focus has shifted dangerously to obsession, especially when it comes to Kestrel. She is
Zoe and the Edge

There are few authors that can get me as angry as Miss Quinn.
The only reason I read this was because I wanted to know how things went down with Julian. And because Ms. Quinn writes good kisses.
Kira continues to find new skills including public speaking. Who would’ve thought? She gets manhandled into the PR side of the revolution because Julian suddenly gets all overprotective of her. It’s a bit cruel on the others because Julian loves Kira the newbie and she’s such a troubl

Such a well written series! I think Kira is a fantastic character and I absolutely love Julian and Sasha. Definitely recommend reading all three books and novellas.

There is some serious action going on in this, the last book of the Mindjack Trilogy. Things have gone from bad to worse for Kira and all mindjackers. The government wants every mindjacker locked up and the general population of mindreaders agrees. The government doesn't look at mindjackers as people, they only see them as a threat. Kira is more unsure of herself and her decisions and she struggles with what needs to be done. There are many, many twists in this book that I never saw coming. The ...more

I liked this one the best out of the three, even though it is the hardest of the bunch to like. Kira embraces her independence and flies it freely in order to make her own mistakes and own her own choices. But...she does shut people out quite regularly, so that's why I mention it was the hardest to like. Sometimes you just want to clock Kira and say "Snap out of it!" - but at least she makes the choice on her own.

There is a love interest at stake here, but its less prominent than in the previous
Thank you to NetGalley for a digital copy of this book.

Saw this one and realized that I was curious enough to finish out the trilogy. Which says something, you know? I mean, there are tons of series that I've dropped over the years, and I don't usually stick with something unless I'm genuinely interested in the outcome. Or maybe I was just out of books to read, and this seemed like a decent option? Whatever the reason, I'm glad I picked up the last book in the Mindjack Trilogy.

Ich bin mit einer Art mulmig-gespannter Erwartung an den dritten Band der Mindjack-Trilogie heran gegangen. Dabei haben mir die ersten beiden Bände wunderbar gefallen - ich habe sie regelrecht inhaliert und mit großer Begeisterung rezensiert!

Tja, warum dann das "mulmig"?

Weil ich mir ehrlich nicht vorstellen konnte, wie diese Geschichte schlüssig und glaubhaft enden sollte. Ich habe mir schon beim Lesen der ersten beiden Bände immer wieder den Kopf darüber zerbrochen, aber die Situation erschien

The way this ended was such a surprise. Kira was so broken at the beginning of this book that I wondered if she would ever come back from it. Eventually though she finds her strength again and learns to love again which was so sweet. I love all the characters and the things that go on in this book. I couldn't get over how Kestrel seems to get away every time and wondered if he would ever get what was coming to him. What happens in the end was so much like carma I think.

After finishing book two, I wasn't sure if I was going to continue this series or not. The story wasn't bad, it just didn't captivate me anymore. But I'm glad I finished because Free Souls was the best book in the series. Things wrapped up nicely, and I loved the changes and growths the characters took. The plot itself was interesting. I'm not so sure I buy a certain thing in the epilogue but I'm willing to overlook it.

Like the other two books, the writing in this book is great. It's engaging and makes you want to know what's next. Unlike the other two books, I couldn't make that reach of 'yeah, this could totally happen'. Kira's jump in abilities from book two to three just felt too sudden, too convenient.
Kira's feelings for Raf felt desperate and out of character.
Despite the writer's privilege complaints, this book was good. It had great pacing, the emotional scenes had just the right amount of emotion, an

This was an interesting story. Definitely kept my interest all the way to the end and I thought it ended as strong as it began. (One of my biggest issues with books, so well done on that.) It was a page turner but I felt the writing was a little...NOT the best at times. The story line was good and the characters were good but I felt like the situations were not always handled realistically but I'm okay with that.

So after Raf got his memory removed I was devastated! And the worst thing was, none if my friends had read it, so I couldn't vent to anyone! Finally, I bought free souls. I expected Kira to step up her game and fight her depression with girl power. Not the "all guys break hearts" kind of girl power but the "I miss Raf but I going to move on" kind of girl power. But no, she had to fall in to Julian's open arms. For me, Kira had to either be with Raf or nobody. And I mean, this is her 3rd boyfrien ...more
