If you could hear the thoughts of every person for three blocks around–the regrets, rationalizations, commercial jingles, the lies that hide what they can’t bear to think—how could you ever trust anyone? And if you could make them believe anything you wanted, how could you ever trust yourself?
Max Renn is a legend of the Soviet mind control program, a genetic experiment, the product of three generations of psychics bred by the state for their power. Before his first mission, the Soviet Union collapses and he disappears.
We meet him twenty years later in the Everglades, keeping as far from people as he can get, until his best friend–his only friend–is murdered and he is forced to assemble a team of people like him to fight the international conspiracy behind the murder.
“A dead-on thriller for the decade . . . . I can’t imagine anyone reading this and not wanting more” — Thomas F. Monteleone, author of the NY Times bestseller The Blood of the Lamb and The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Writing a Novel
“Ted Krever has been a writer to watch, now he’s a writer to read. Do not miss MINDBENDERS.” -F. Paul Wilson
“Ted Krever is a great storyteller but more importantly, the stories he creates and writes are ones that I want to read. In this ADD era, where even e-mails are considered too long, Ted’s work commands my attention. It is definitely worthy of yours, too.” -David Leaf, biographer and award-winner writer/director/producer of such films as ‘The Night James Brown Saved Boston,’ ‘The US Vs. John Lennon’ and ‘ BEAUTIFUL DREAMER: Brian Wilson and The Story of SMiLE.’
I received this book from the author to give an honest review.
I had to give this book 4 stars only because it wouldn't let me give it 4 1/2 stars. The plot of the book was great, but I am basing my rating on how much I had to keep going back to re-read parts because I kept getting a bit confused on what exactly was going on. What exactly they were doing with their powers that they have.
Mindbenders takes you on a journey with Greg and Max and two other characters, who are uncovering a conspiracy to get rid of hope that the world needs. They each have their own mind boggling powers, and they will use those powers to bring the others down.
When Greg's guardian ends up dying, Max comes and sweeps Greg into the world of the Mindbenders, and Greg learns that there is more to things in life then just a regular world. Greg doesn't think he has any of the powers that the others have until Max forces him to open up that way he can help keep his self and his friends alive.
Mindbenders is full of conspiracy, thriller, the paranormal all wrapped up into one.
I can not wait to give book two a try when it comes out.
