She reads minds.He controls minds.Together, they might get out alive.
49% of Americans believe their government officials are honest.
I don’t know these officials, or their supporters, but I know their secrets, and 49% of Americans are wrong.
My employers pay me well to be right, to know things others can’t. But I don’t know why they brought that boy in, strapped to a stretcher, barely conscious. He asked me for help when I could give none.
I’m a wealthy spy, a talented artist, a martial arts black belt, and a prisoner.
They tell me that on my eighteenth birthday, I will be released, free to go to the college of my dreams.
It’s my eighteenth birthday, and a man in black is at my door. I know he’s not here to free me.
I know, because I can read minds.
My name is Sam, and this is my story.

Super powers books are a known weakness of mine. I just love them, plus mind reading is my favorite super power of all time. So I knew right away that Forbidden Mind would be a match made in heaven for me- and I was right! This is another book that kind of reminded me of X-men. It is a short book, but also one that is full of action, romance and edge of your seat fun. 

Sam and Drake both have powers surrounding the mind, which could be why I loved them so much. It was just so cool to see how they communicated with each other. So much of their talking was through the mind, which I thought was a really interesting addition to Forbidden Mind. I am really into the guy/girl alternating point of view writing style, so I was happy to see that here. You alternate between Sam and Drake and I thought the flow between the two was really good. Plus, the love story with them was so excellent. I loved reading about them. 

The world in Forbidden Mind is so cool. I loved all of the twists and turns, and the action kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time, but the pace is so fast that the story seemed to be over pretty quickly. I could have used with a little bit more details or breaks from the action to kind of slow the story down a bit. I really was just enjoying the story so much that I wanted a little more. 

I am so excited that the next two books in trilogy are already out, because I don’t want to wait to read the second book. This is a really good addition to the ranks of super powers books!
