Things are more dangerous than they seem at Ganzfield, and not everyone will survive. Does Maddie have what it takes?See what happens next in the sequel to Minder.
With a detailed introduction this is a story that could be read without reading book 1. But book 1 was awesome, so I recommend you pick it up.
Characters: Maddie and Trevor are back again as the main focus of the story. They have grown closer after the events in book one. We also get to see an introduction to some new characters and Maddie’s mother, who I adored.
Writing: The world that the author as built here is fun and dangerous. The characters have to go through Training Drills to make their powers stronger and learn how to work with each other. The drills and the events that happen are very dangerous and when the Doctor goes missing it becomes all out war and survival. Very fast paced, a lot of events and super powers lead to a intense and packed pages.
Plot: Ganzfield is attacked and several people die, some taken hostage. Maddie ends up taking the survivors on a visit to her mother’s house while they try to determine the details of who attacked them and where the Doctor is. There are several deaths and dangerous situations that they must endure to survive, and not even Maddie herself is able to get away unharmed.
Originality: Like a comic book adventure put into novel form. There are several different abilities that the students of Ganzfield possess. From healing to mind readers and those that can stretch their mind power out to help or influence others. The students of Ganzfield do take a supplement pill that enhances their abilities and so they have to go through training drills and become target to outside organizations, others like themselves or want to have what they have.
Krista’s Review: This series is becoming more intense with every book. It pretty much becomes all out war and nobody is safe. With the fast paced relationship that developed between Trevor and Maddie in book one, it becomes deeper in book 2. The author presents an alternative to sex with these characters with a soul connection that becomes more intense than just sex, and leads so some intense sexytime moments. I would recommend these books to those that like war stories, and a lot of all out battle scenes, with the addition of superhuman powers.
