Blade Runner meets X-Men in this follow-up to Mind Storm where humanity faces extinction and it's up to a group of rogue psions to save society
Fans of Charles Stross and Hannu Rajaniemi will lose themselves in this adventure as Threnody Corwin and her team of rogue Strykers contend with the aftermath of the events in Mind Storm and the unlocking of a new kind of psion power. They're on the run with Lucas Serca, who is closer than ever to destroying the World Court and his father's grip on the planet. Targeting the hidden cache of the planet's food supply meant to transform Mars into a paradise for the chosen few, Lucas triggers an escalating fight with the ruling government as worldwide chaos ensues. It's up to Threnody to save society before it destroys itself, but the cost is high and in the end, there is no such thing as compromise.
There is only survival.
In Threnody Corwin, K. M. Ruiz has created the coolest and most bad-ass sci-fi heroine since Signourney Weaver portrayed Ripley in the Alien films and Terminal Point takes her to the next level.
In a world where nuclear warfare has created telepaths who are enslaved by the registered pure elite, archvillain Nathan Serca hides his superhuman extrasensory powers so he can lift off for the Mars colony inhabited by the pure of mind. Nathan s son and former heir, Lucas, has allied with a group of former Strykers, short-lived psions controlled by the World Court s implanted mental death switches. They defy Nathan and the Court, who think only of controlling or escaping Earth, and strive to save the planet and its inhabitants, human and psion alike. Though Ruiz (Mind Storm) kills off several of the sympathetic but stiffly drawn characters, kaleidoscopically intricate shifting alliances and relationships, terrifying mental tortures, and near-death experiences and resurrections drive this saga of revolt and renewal and leave plenty of room for future installments.

Best Sci-Fi Book I've Ever Read
I cannot describe how amazing this book is. I fully recommend reading the first book, Mind Storm, first, that way you understand what's happening in this book. However, once that is done, this book will blow your mind. This is one of those books that's so amazing that if they ever made a movie, they would surely ruin it. I've never wanted to be a character more than I wanted to be some of the characters in this book. Please read this book, you won't regret it.
