Mind Secrets is a novel in the best of all science fiction traditions. It makes one contrary-to-today's-science assumption and then shows us the consequences. I love such stories in general, and I love this one in particular.

The contrary-to-today assumption is mind-reading—of a sort. It's begun to spring up among teenagers, much to the chagrin of the graybeards. In the book, the conflict is played out on the full London stage, but especially in the life of Michael, who wakes up at the start of t...more
All I can say is WOW!

This book is a MUST read for 2012!! Chris Reynolds does a fantastic job of starting you off in the same confusion the lead character, Michael, is in. As Michael discovers more about himself, the reader is right along with him. Reynolds leads you on this wild journey and keeps you wondering until the very end "What will Michael do? What will become of Perceivers? And who IS Michael and why is he so important?"

I will admit that I had some trouble in the beginning because the a...more

Teenagers are developing telepathic and empathic powers that they can use on anyone around them - Sounds cool, right? - Wrong, just ask Michael, a teen with no recollection of his past, whose recent escape from some pretty mysterious people has left him roaming the unfamiliar streets of London. Finding other affected (and ostracized) teens along the way, he must figure out who - and what - he is and decide whether to try and fight back against an unaccepting and power-driven society...more
Mind Secrets is a superbly written novel that caters to young and adult readers alike. It's a story that is both plot and character driven, and I thought it was decent page turner. If you're into the Supernatural and Para-psychological, then this book will put a hold on you. The chapters end in cliffhanger fashion, and there is lots of detailed action to keep you on the edges of your favorite chair. Before I get into what I liked about it, first the bad news. The ending. It was anti-climatic, an...more
Mind Secrets by Chris Reynolds, was a deliciously refreshing read.

Right away, the story starts out fast and crazy with a confused Michael, who only knows his name due to the people yelling at him, as he's trying to escape them. Spurred on by just an instinctual mistrust, Michael escapes with no knowledge of who he is or where he comes from.

Meanwhile, the world around him is going crazy because a high number of teenagers, all over, are capable of mind reading. These are the Perceivers. And they...more
Mind Secrets lives up to its title. Michael doesn't know how he got to where he did or why, but he stumbles upon a gang of teens with similar "powers." He learns from them that people with his abilities are under fire and may have their abilities eradicated. While he is with his new friends, he tries to piece together his memory and rip open a few closely held government secrets.

Michael's character is interesting. It's hard to get to know a character who doesn't know himself. However, some char...more

I enjoyed this book. If I could give it 3 1/2 stars, I would. However I don't have that option. So I'm going with 3. The reason is at times the story jumped too far ahead of itself, especially the ending. I really would have liked more story instead of it skipping about 3 weeks time and just ending. I also found the language a little confusing at times. The story is set in London and they have different words and phrases. Overall it was enjoyable. Kind of reminded me of the whole X-men saga. It...more
