    Story
    (711)

    It's the 21st century, and global warming is here to stay, so forget the way your country used to look. And get used to the free market, too – the companies possess all the best hardware, and they're calling the shots now. In a world like this, a man open to any offers can make out just fine. A man like Greg Mandel for instance, who's psi-boosted, wired into the latest sensory equipment, carrying state-of-the-art weaponry – and late of the English Army's Mindstar Battalion.

    Michael G. Kurilla says: "Portrait of a SciFi master as a novice"
    "Good Spy Thriller / Sci Fi"

    Story
    What did you love best about Mindstar Rising?

    New sci fi approach, unconventional and dysotopian future world. Mixed genre of scifi and detective without one being more dominant.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The psi abilities opened quite a few possibilities strands. It was quite coherent and the narrative stayed true throughout. Despite being a triology, it could stand on itself as a single sci fi / detective novel.


    What about Toby Longworth’s performance did you like?

    His standard voice can be a bit grating, but overall was OK.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Psi mutant detective vs greed in a dysotopian world.


    Any additional comments?

    It's a good book, once you get past initial scene setting. The last 3rd of the book was stretched - but that's a minor fault, if at all.
