SHORT NOVELLA

Twenty-three-year-old Sasha is in search of a mindjacking Clan that won’t force him to use his unique skill—he can’t face the prospect of erasing any more souls. A revolutionary Clan leader offers him a chance to serve a higher purpose, but Sasha’s wary that it’s only a trick to use his ability. When a beautiful female jacker seeks refuge with them, and her fo

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 po

This short story is about Sasha, who was introduced in The Handler. And isn't he just gorgeous on the cover:) He and Julian have a meeting with a new recruit. Ava is a wisp of a girl that has the ability of a linker. And she can read minds without the person knowing. At first he doesn't trust her, but she slowly gains his trust. They both come from the same Clan leader, Arlis, but they did not know each other as they were in the clan at different time. They both want to stay away from him. But h ...more

So, so happy to have the chance to tell you about these two short novellas (The Scribe, The Handler) that go along with the Mindjack Series by Susan Quinn. I have reviewed the first two novels, Open Minds and Closed Hearts on my blog. I loved them.

I just love when authors give us these novellas. For me, it serves two roles. First, it feeds me need to read more in between the actual full length novels. A little snack at intermission. :) Second, it gives me a glimpse into the lives, emotions and h

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 tha ...more

THE SCRIBE (Mindjack Origins 2.2) by Susan Kaye Quinn

THE SCRIBE is another short-story (August 2012 release) from Susan Kaye Quinn’s Mindjack Trilogy. In a world where mindreading is the norm (due to decades of contaminated water) those without the ability are known as zeroes, but there are a few who possess a power greater than most. This story takes place between Open Minds and Closed Hearts.

Sasha Rimbali has a power that he considers so evil that he is willing to die before he ever uses his p

It had been long enough since I read Closed Hearts that I couldn't remember much about Sasha until The Scribe made me recall wanting to know more about him. Now I do, and I can say Susan did an excellent job of creating a soul so tortured that he needs more than Julian's skill to make something useful out of the shambles.

Susan's symbolism is great. With his life in the toilet, Sasha works to build a bathroom while he tries to rebuild his character destroyed by Arlis, a rival clean leader who for

No Sasha, she thought, I'm here so you can save me.

Wow, and finally the Scribe - Sasha.
The one that I knew the least about from book 2. I now understand.

AND to be intro'd to Ava. Understand her back story, the link between Sasha and Ava.
And to see Julian help shape the revolution.

and to read of their flirting. It's so sweet and cute. The perfect ray of sunshine in this dark world.

As a short background story to the MindJack trilogy, I enjoyed this. It's short and nothing special, but it does add a little extra depth and understanding to the events recounted in the Mind Jack trilogy, especially books 2 and 3. As a 77pence book, this is worth buying but only if you have enjoyed the main trilogy first.

Loved this snack from the Mindjack world while waiting for book 3. Sasha was such an interesting character, and it was great to see the world through his eyes, and get inside his head (without jacking in of course ;-) ). Bravo!
Adam Heine
Love it! Sasha is such a flawed and tortured character that we know so little about. It makes me want to read Closed Hearts again (and makes me want the third book to come out even more).

Awwww... Sasha, you sweet, sweet guy. I'd say this is the most romance I got from this series, and who knew Sasha would be the one to excel in the hot guy department?
Stephy-jay
I never truly knew what to make of Sasha before now Its nice to understand why he is the way he is! And why he feels so protective of Ava!
Kelly
I enjoyed reading his story the most. I can't imagine what it would be like to have that kind of power! Ava seems right for him.
Becky
Excellent account of Sasha's time with Julian before the others joined and how he honed his skill.

I loved it!
Ayaan
Really enjoyed hearing about Sasha and reading about how he met Ava. :D
