When mindreaders run the world, being a jacker makes you a weapon. Zeph can break open the toughest minds—or lock the weakest ones—which only makes every Clan leader want to own him. He did as he was told, kept his head down, and tried to shut out the screams. But when they came after his family, he hugged his kid sister goodbye and ran away to keep them safe. For two years, he’s passed as a reader. Then his family disappears, readers start changing into super jackers, and Zeph is forced to return to a city filled with jackers who hate him. To find his family, he must trick a mindware CEO into helping him, avoid a girl who knows him too well, and spy on the most powerful jacker in the state.
All without dying or revealing his abilities—or being caught in the firestorm of hate between jackers and readers that’s threatening to pull the world apart.
The bestselling Mindjack Series continues with a world of mindreaders and mindjackers as you've never seen it before. LOCKED TIGHT is the first of three Mindjack novels from Zeph's perspective. (See The Locksmith for Zeph's origin story.)
A great find!
This book, along with Kira book 1, was a freebie from Bookbub. I get amazing freebies from them every week, and I’m usually happy with them but it’s rare that I have an irresistible urge to buy the next book in the series. With this book, and the Kira Book 1, I am going to be forced to buy ALL THE BOOKS. I wonder if I may have been jacked myself. Hmmm. Oh well, I must buy ALL THE BOOKS.
The characters were well written, and you find yourself rooting for them. The plot is fascinating without being too obvious, and there are even little subplots and subtle character development that will keep you riveted. The author has created a world I would love to be a part of. I highly recommend, as long as you don’t mind the fact that, afterward, you will want to buy ALL THE BOOKS.
Amazing and addicting
This book was hard to put down at times. The way it captured your attention from the first introduction of the main character to the last page. I’m looking forward to reading the other 3 books in the series.
