When you control minds, only your heart can be used against you.
Eight months ago, Kira Moore revealed to the mindreading world that mindjackers like herself were hidden in their midst. Now she wonders if telling the truth was the right choice. As wild rumors spread, a powerful anti-jacker politician capitalizes on mindreaders’ fears and strips jackers of their rights. While some jackers flee to Jackertown—a slum rife with jackworkers who trade mind control favors for cash—Kira and her family hide from the readers who fear her and jackers who hate her. But when a jacker Clan member makes Kira’s boyfriend Raf collapse in her arms, Kira is forced to save the people she loves by facing the thing she fears most: FBI agent Kestrel and his experimental torture chamber for jackers.

Customer ReviewsSee All
Action packed YA read.
In the second book in the Mindjack series, Kira's life is still way too complicated after moving from a zero to hero and then something to be feared. Old enemies return and new allies are formed as Kira once more plays the hero. A little bit of a sad ending that leaves hope for happier days in the continuing series. Not a standalone and should be read as part of the series.
This book is well conceived and written. The idea that most people can read minds introduces lots of issues for the main character. I also appreciated the strong young female as the protagonist of this story.
