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.

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

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

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
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 troub

The end was kind of anticlimactic but a mind blowing kind of. It was amazing! The action scenes always had me holding my breath.
I don't have words to describe the book except it was mind blowingly amazing! I highly recommend this series.
It has action suspense and amazing plot line with great characters.
I want more and I'm excited there are novellas.

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.
Norm Davis
I enjoyed Free Souls and thought it an excellent conclusion to the Mindjack trilogy that includes only Open Minds, Closed Hearts, and Free Souls. I recommend the series. I think it is entertaining and thought provoking. The trilogy explores real life concepts with some imaginary parallels in this science fiction world where mind reading is normal and "not mind reading" is abnormal.

I found some minor things about the book where I struggled to suspend disbelief. These were related to Kira, the pro

Good read .... spoilers

The third book in the mindjack series which ends Kira's story. The trilogy was good, it had a solid storyline and well written characters. The problem I had with all three books is there were very few victories in that the jackers where constantly taken down or the fact Kira was constantly kidnapped or taken. Kira suffered the most loss. She lost simon in the first book, which had mixed feelings due to his betrayal. Then in the 2nd book she lost Raf. When Rafs memories wer

The third installment! After everything that Kira has gone through and she keeps on going. How do you do it Susan? I hope there are more stories in this world. A whole new world is opening up and Kira and Julian and Anna are on the beginning. Will Raf be a part of it now? Will more people join or will they come out of Jackertown? What will happen now? Great writing style. I have read all the other novellas and short stories that fill in some of the gaps and she is one of my new best authors! I c ...more

Loved the twists

Kiras romantic connection with Julian finally came to be. The parts that got me were how this evolution started and Vellus' real plan and what an ass Kestrel really was. A lot worse than Kiras worst nightmare. The action picked up even more intense than the second book and surprised me in a few ways with the introduction of new characters and the way that the poison backfired and actually squashed Kestrels plans. Yay. The nice part of the ending was how Kiras dream of being a doc

Free Souls, the last of the Mindjack trilogy, was my favorite of the three. The very end was exactly what I wanted, but there were many times I was sure it wouldn’t turn out that way. There were a couple twists that totally surprised me. I really didn’t see them coming. The book is very well written and enjoyable. By halfway through I couldn’t put it down. I highly recommend reading it (after the first two Mindjack books)!

Really enjoyed it! Would love one more short ending when they are older.

Interesting ending. Not what I expected but it was good. Would be nice to have just one more book to close it out even more. Really enjoyed the characters and I was able to keep up with all of them! I've read other books where I've gotten lost or have had to write it down, but not with this series. I loved and hated all the characters as the story was designed to do.

This book emphasizes the fight between the jackers & the mindreaders. Kira joins Julians revolutionary group JFA & goes after the politian Vellus, not realizing it's really her old nemisis pulling the strings. The fighting continues because of the differences between the two groups. Both afraid of the other & neither wanting to make the first move. ...more

Good ending

This story was wrapped up pretty nicely. It did get a bit tense there for awhile and I was worried about the ending.

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.

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
After the second book, I got hooked on the Mindjack Trilogy. So I quickly bought the next book, eager to find out what happens next. Free Souls didn’t disappoint, but it could have been better. A few months have passed since Closed Hearts. Kira is now an active member of Julian’s Jacker Freedom Alliance. She’s also discovered new powers derived from her mindjacking ability. In the previous two books, Kira showed that she could jack into her own mind. This led her to unlock some pretty handy abil ...more

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 and other jackers.  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 ...more

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.

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
