Mindbenders 2

I had received a copy of the first Mindbenders through a contest, and what a prize it was! I goofed around a bit with remote viewing in my youth so this action series with a bit of sci-fi that could very well be real world twist was right up my alley. I enjoyed it so much I went on to read numerous other books from the same author.

The sequel picks up pretty much literally where the first ended, so I highly encourage you to read book one if you haven’t. Even if you have, I recommend reading it again to refresh your memory. Besides, it’s a hell of a read, so it’s win-win.
In the interest of full disclosure, I was given a free copy of this book by Mr. Krever in exchange for an honest review. It took me longer than expected and I enjoyed the book so much, I decided to purchase a copy for myself.
Bottom line, if you enjoyed the first book, I’d bet money you’ll like the second. And if you haven’t read the first book, stop reading this review and pick up a copy.

My Review of Ted Krever’s Mindbenders

Yeah, typically I’m babbling about my own books (or Autism or, well, whatever), but I thought I’d swtich gears and write about an excellent book I just read.  It’s Ted Krever’s Mindbenders and I highly recommend it.  Here’s my review of it in all its (lack of) glory:

Ted Krever’s Mindbenders was a wonderful surprise.  It took me all of two pages to get into it, and I was hooked through the end.  The pacing is spot-on, alternating between exhilarating action and quiet,  character-driven moments.

It’s a great bit of Psi-Fi, made better by the fact it’s both timely and relevant.  Many (all?) of the government programs listed are real and the author has adapted their findings seamlessly into his writing.  He manages to make the science behind it easily digestible, even going so far as to explain my urge to purchase a new SUV, despite having only three people in my family.  Most importantly, he does all this without robbing us of character development.

If I had to complain about anything, it would be the end.  Not that I found the conclusion unsatisfactory, but I wanted to spend more time with the characters.   From the looks of it, the author is working on a sequel, so I suppose I’ll just have to be patient.  As it is now, Mindbenders is a great book on its own and has the capacity to become a very impressive series.

Of course, there’s always the chance somebody out there is controlling my mind, compelling me to think this….

Five Stars

So, don’t let my endorsement of it tarnish this great book.  Check it out here: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004ZRM6J2/ref=cm_cr_mts_prod_img
