Powerful sequel to last year's Mind Storm, this is not your gentle discovery of psion talent (telepathy, empath, precog) found in early works of Anne McCaffrey or Andre Norton.

Nathan, the head of the Serca family, and the most powerful psion in the world, has coerced and fooled the World Court and is in the midst of his plan to take over the Ark, the escape star ship transporting the "clean" humans to Mars to start a new world. He plans to rule Mars and use the humans as his chattels. His rebell

I really enjoyed the first book about the radiation ravaged world where some people have mutated as "psions"- with abilities including telepathy, telekinesis, empathy, fire-starting, electrokinesis. This book starts where the other left off- Lucas Serca is leading a team of rogue psions and human scavengers in a battle against his elitist father (who is secretly a powerful psion) and the World Court of uncontaminated humans who command a force of psions forced to protect humans. In addition to s ...more

Hack The Planet!!!

They're TRASHING our rights, man! They're TRASHING the flow of data! They're TRASHING! the earth! HACK THE PLANET!
Hack brains, computers, satellites, babies DNA. Hack it all!
A good, brutal, bloody, violent follow up to Mind Storm.
Mind Storm took a little while to get to know the players so this book was easier to follow. A little more character development would have helped. Made the deaths of main characters a little more emotional.

Information is power.

Pros: lots of action, powerful characters had limitations, complex plot gets resolved

Cons: hard to believe just how much Lucas's group achieves with so little rest and time to heal from previous injuries

This is the second volume of the Stryker Syndicate duology that started with Mind Storm. The action starts directly where Mind Storm ended, with Lucas and his group heading to the Arctic while their actions in Buffalo cause problems for the Strykers, the Warhounds and the World Court. The World C

Terminal Point is the conclusion to the story that began in Mind Storm. Lucas, Threndoy and their band of Strykers are targeting the food supply that is heading to Mars ahead of the rich humans who are hoping to colonized the planet while leaving the unfortunately including the psions they bred to carry out their dirty work. The stakes become higher and a lot of the mysteries from the first book are revealed. Ruiz provides a stronger understanding of the world she created. Be warned the body cou ...more

Terminal Point was a decent read, continues where Mindstorm left off, a lot of action, very little character development, although this time there is no back story to also fill in for the lack of character development. I found the plot sufficient and Ruiz does paint a good post apocalyptic world but the lack of a true main character, often varying between different people with different purposes. All in all a fine book for those who like sci-fi or those that enjoy a lot of action.

Shelves: sci-fi
Fast paced sci-fi that serves up a solid conclusion from its predecessor and a few interesting surprises. It reads like an action movie. The pace leaves little room for characterization, however; the primary goal here is to get from point A to point B, and so we still get little background or insight into many of the characters. Sometimes you feel almost as breathless as the characters themselves who just don't seem to get a break.

I fell in love with the Strykers Syndicate novels because of the characters; characterisation certainly being one of Ruiz's strength. While the pacing was relatively good, I felt that there was too much description of the world at the beginning of chapters that disrupted the flow of the story for me. Overall, I really enjoyed reading both books in the series and look forward to more from Ruiz.

A disappointing wrap to the first book, with most favorite characters killed off and nothing really solved or wrapped up. Even if more books are added to this, I have no interest in pursuing the remaining characters lives. Too bad, since I really liked the first book so well!! :(

I just could not finish this novel, the story is too much of a stretch for me to get into it. Too many people with magical powers all doing the impossible. Characters are poorly developed and lack depth so there is no connection with any of them.
