Amazon | Indiebound | B&N
Fia was born with flawless instincts. Her first impulse, her gut feeling, is always exactly right. Her sister, Annie, is blind to the world around her—except when her mind is gripped by strange visions of the future.
Trapped in a school that uses girls with extraordinary powers as tools for corporate espionage, Annie and Fia are forced to choose over and over between using their abilities in twisted, unthinkable ways… or risking each other’s lives by refusing to obey.
In a stunning departure from her New York Times bestselling Paranormalcy trilogy, Kiersten White delivers a slick, edgy, heartstoppingly intense psychological thriller about two sisters determined to protect each other—no matter the cost. (from Goodreads)
Kiersten White is a genius! I adored everything in this novel. She can write some pretty fantastic stuff that will have you hooked from beginning to end and even after it’s finished. You’ll be wanting more from her long after you’re done with Mind Games.
I was constantly flipping back to the cover to make sure I was reading a book by Kiersten White, not in a bad way though because I did love her Paranormalcy series but because this one felt so different. Mind Games was just as engrossing and fabulous as Paranormalcy but it felt darker, steamier, it felt like Kiersten lets go in this series and touches at the edge of her limits. It’s really hard to explain, just know that there was a lot more kissy scenes in Mind Games. Loved it!
I loved that Kiersten once again created some empowering female characters that can kick butt just like Evie. Fia is not a damsel in distress and reading her story makes your blood pump faster, makes you proud of being a girl and also feel like you can kick anybody’s butt and go run a mile right after. I loved Fia’s strength and loyalty to her sister. I love that we get to see both of their perspectives in this novel and see how different they are but how much they both love each other and will do anything to protect one another. We also get to see how they ended up in this institution through flashbacks in between their chapters that take us a couple of years back and counts down to the present.
There’s also of course, a very hot love interest, one that you don’t really know if he’s trustworthy or not, but boy does he make you weak in the knees. Couldn’t get enough of those scenes between him and Fia, they were pretty hot and had me holding my breath waiting for more. Kiersten definitely knows how to tease her readers. There’s also the possibility of a second love interest but honestly I don’t know how that will play out in the sequel with the crazy ending we are left with in Mind Games. This was a fast paced and exciting new series by Kiersten White, one much edgier than Paranormalcy and just as addictive.Pin It
