Free Souls is HERE!

All you wonderful reader- and writer-friends, who I love. I'm at the end of The Truth About Letting Go, and I have cried, swooned... omg. I can't wait to share it with you.

In the meantime, I am PSYCHED about today's post. I've been great friends with Susan Quinn (link) for a few years, since I reviewed her very first book Life, Liberty, and Pursuit (link), a sweet, YA romance.

Susan's a rocket scientist. Yep. So it's only natural her next trilogy (thrill-ogy) is a science fiction story that ROCKS! I read and reviewed Book #1 Open Minds (link), and I had the privilege of critiquing her final installment Free Souls.

It. Is. AWESOME!!! Action paced, intense...

So without further ado, here you geaux~

Free Souls by Susan Kaye Quinn
(Book Three of the Mindjack Trilogy) Now Available!
When your mind is a weapon, freedom comes at a price.

Four months have passed since Kira left home to join Julian’s Jacker Freedom Alliance, but the hole in her heart still whistles empty where her boyfriend Raf used to be. She fills it with weapons training, JFA patrols, and an obsessive hunt for FBI agent Kestrel, ignoring Julian’s worries about her safety and repeated attempts to recruit her for his revolutionary chat-casts. When anti-jacker politician Vellus surrounds Jackertown with the National Guard, Kira discovers there’s more to Julian’s concerns than she knew, but she’s forced to take on a mission that neither want and that might be her last: assassinating Senator Vellus before he can snuff out Julian’s revolution and the jackers she’s come to love.

All Mindjack stories available on Amazon, Barnes&Noble, Kobo, Smashwords, and iTunes
(Note Free Souls is not yet available on iTunes)

Early Praise for Free Souls

“Quinn paints a picture of a not-too-distant America where politicians inflame the hatred of one section of the populace for another—all for their own gain—and you worry that her world is not so far off from our own.”
Dianne Salerni, author of We Hear the Dead, The Caged Graves, and the forthcoming The Eighth Day

"Free Souls starts with a bang and doesn't let up. Like a mash-up of all your favorite science-fiction adventures from Star Wars to The Legend of Korra, it blends nonstop action, nail-biting escapes, and great romance. I absolutely loved it! A great series conclusion—a must-read."
Leigh Talbert Moore, author of Rouge and The Truth About Faking

“Susan did it again. Free Souls was WOW! I expected Kira to step up to her role as heroine but not like this. Surprises kept coming until the very end which tied up more loose ends than I knew existed. Warning: Don't start reading until you have time to finish. I didn't want to put Free Souls down for a second. It's that kind of book.”
Sher A. Hart, Goodreads Review

Stina Lindenblatt said...

Yay, now I can read the entire series. I've been waiting until the final book came out. I have to reread the first one, tho. I read it years ago, back when I was the beta reader for it.

Susan Kaye Quinn said...

Stina, the final book is so different from when you beta-read, too! I hope you enjoy all of them. :)

Pat Hatt said...

Sounds like quite the read, also like the image of all three in the same package.
