Teenagers with mind powers fight for the right to survive in the thrilling first novel of the Perceivers series.
Waking up without his memories and hunted by Agent Cooper, Michael finds sanctuary with a group of perceivers: telepaths who sense the thoughts and emotions of others. Drawn into their battle to stay free of the cure which threatens to strip them of their powers, he searches for the person who stole his past. As the tension between perceivers and norms erupts into violence, Michael pieces together the shocking truth behind the origin of their power. To save his friends from destruction, he must face Cooper and confront the painful revelations of his forgotten secrets.
A gripping science fiction thriller set on the streets of London, Mind Secrets takes an exciting and dangerous journey into intrigue, friendship and deception.
*Previously published under the author name Chris Reynolds and the title Perceivers.
I thought the concept behind this book was an interesting one.
I wish there had been a more detailed exploration of what its really like to carry, see, hear, feel the burdens of other people's thoughts and feelings.
I really appreciated the concept of friendship and the progression readers are taken on along with Michael. However there is another place readers get to explore another level of emotion they get to experience.
In a lot of ways Mind Secrets reminds me of the show The Tomorrow People because there is so much complexity and multiple levels of adventure and the abilities and the group of friends and all the background suspense and him being on the run its really great.
If we had been given a more personal look at that one angle I believe this book would have been a five star read. I am intrigued and I am interested in following up with the next installments.
