Overview

She can read minds, he can control them. Together, they might stand a chance at survival.

I’ve delved into the innermost thoughts of murderers, psychopaths, and the deranged, but nothing prepared me for what I discovered when I turned 18. Like my peers, I thought I would be free from the clutches of the secret organization that raised us to become paranormal spies, but then I met Drake.

It’s a race against the clock, and if we fail, the consequences will be dire.

Editoral Review

Forbidden Mind by Karpov Kinrade is the first book in the Forbidden series. It was first published on September 1, 2011.

The book falls under the young adult science fiction and fantasy genre. Kinrade is a writer duo that consists of Kimberly Kinrade and Dmytry Karpov.

The story is set in a world where people with psychic abilities are treated as outcasts and forbidden from using their powers. The protagonist, Sam, is a young girl who has telekinetic powers that allow her to move objects with her mind.

She lives in a government facility where she is forced to use her powers for military purposes. However, she dreams of escaping and living a normal life.

The book is well written and has a fast-paced plot that keeps the reader engaged. It is a thrilling read that explores the themes of power, oppression, and freedom.

The characters are well-developed, and the world-building is impressive. One of the strengths of the book is the author’s ability to create a believable and engaging world.

The setting is described in vivid detail, and the characters’ psychic abilities are well thought-out and explained. The pacing of the story is excellent, with action sequences that are well-timed and exciting.

However, the book does have its weaknesses. The villains are somewhat one-dimensional and lack depth.

Their motivations for keeping the psychics imprisoned are not fully explained, making it harder for the reader to sympathize with them. Additionally, there is a romance subplot that feels forced and unrealistic.

Overall, Forbidden Mind is a well-crafted and entertaining read. It is comparable to other popular Young Adult series, such as The Hunger Games and Divergent.

It is an excellent choice for readers who enjoy science fiction and fantasy novels. The book is suitable for readers of all ages, but it is particularly well-suited for young adults who love action-packed stories with paranormal elements.

It is also an excellent choice for those interested in exploring themes of power and oppression. In conclusion, Forbidden Mind is a compelling and thought-provoking book that is well worth reading.

It receives a rating of 4 out of 5 stars.
