Less than two weeks to the release of Open Minds (Book One of the Mindjack Trilogy) on November 1st!
When everyone reads minds,
a secret is a dangerous thing to keep.
Sixteen-year-old Kira Moore is a zero, someone who can't read thoughts or be read by others. Zeros are outcasts who can't be trusted, leaving her no chance with Raf, a regular mindreader and the best friend she secretly loves. When she accidentally controls Raf's mind and nearly kills him, Kira tries to hide her frightening new ability from her family and an increasingly suspicious Raf. But lies tangle around her, and she's dragged deep into a hidden world of mindjackers, where being forced to mind control everyone she loves is just the beginning of the deadly choices before her.
Add Open Minds to your TBR:
Thanks to the 90+ people who have already added Open Minds to their Goodreads TBR! It's so exciting to watch friends with ARCs and reviewers work their way through the book! I'm starting to see the #keepingOPENMINDS badge pop up on Virtual Partier's Blogs (THANK YOU!).
And reviews are trickling in ...
"Wow oh Wow! I just inhaled this book. Quinn is an amazing author with an even more amazing imagination. In some ways Kira reminds me a lot of Katniss from the Hunger Games series. She is forced out of her comfort zone in order to protect herself and her loved ones from those that only want to use her and her ability. Kira is a strong, well developed character that many will relate to. I am sure there has been a time in everyone's life where you felt like an outcast only wanting to fit in. And sometimes the things we do to fit in only get us in trouble." - TwiMom101 Book Blog
"Wow – just when I was getting a little bored of YA a book like this comes along and just wows me back! The writing is easy to fall into and flowing allowing quick immersion in this fascinating world. I was holding my breath right up until the last page. I was drawn into the story and characters and I’m now desperate to know what impact Kira’s actions will have on her world and how she manages to adapt." - Mel's Random Reviews
And Angela Brown has spotlighted Open Minds on her blog today! I simply adore the title: "Let's Get Ready to Mindjack!" (THANK YOU Angela!)
Open Minds Paper ARC GIVEAWAY
Isn't it pretty?Dale, my cover designer, did an amazing job with the cover for the paper version of Open Minds. The blurb on the back is from the wonderful Michelle Davidson Argyle, author of Monarch and Cinders:
“Open Minds pushed me to the edge of my imagination and then tossed me over the edge as I screamed for more. Quinn has created an intensely dangerous world both inside the minds of her characters and outside - a world that left me asking myself questions I would never have asked before. When you can literally control the thoughts of others, how far will you go?”
I'm giving away TWO paper ARCs of Open Minds.
