From USA Today best-selling authors comes the highly anticipated sequel to The Thought Readers
What am I?
Who killed my family?
I need to get some answers before the Russian mob succeeds in killing me.
That is, if my own friends don't kill me first.

I have to say that I was very pleasantly surprised by “The Thought Pushers”. I had so many questions at the end of “The Thought Readers” that I wasn’t sure where the authors were going to go with the sequel, but I was looking forward to finding out.
“The Thought Pushers” does a great job of building on events in “The Thought Readers” as Darren’s story continues. We get to ride along with Darren as he continues to discover more about who and what he is, the world he is a part of, who is family really is, and so much more. The plot twists keep coming and keep you guessing what’s going to be around the next corner. And of course, there is the complicated relationship with Mira, who can do a complete 180 if the wrong thing is said or even implied. The authors did a great job with continuing to develop the characters into people I cared more and more about as the story went on, and the story kept drawing me further into it.
The nicest surprise for me was the quality of the narration. I wasn’t very impressed with Roberto Scarlato’s narration of “The Thought Readers”, but this time around I thought he did a really nice job. There seemed to be more emotion in his voice, which is a characteristic that significantly contributes to keeping me interested in the story and the characters.
I give “The Thought Pushers” a definite 2 thumbs up! And now I’m really looking forward to the third installment of this series as well as the offshoot, “The Time Stopper”.
After being pleasantly surprised by the quality of 'The Thought Readers', i was eager to dive into the sequel. The book is a direct continuation of events from the previous 'The Thought Readers', so I highly recommend reading it before this one.
The story concentrates on Darren's supernatural abilities once again, as he searches for clues about his past, the fate of his parents and what it means to be a Pusher. Considering the events of the first book, I actually found 'The Though Pushers' highly entertaining. This is the hallmark of a good sequel, as it builds upon events from the previous book, while fleshing out familiar characters and at the same time introducing new ones.
Speaking of characters, the protagonist - Darren - continues to be a relatable and interesting lead character. His complicated relationship with love interest Mira was also a great narrative hook for me, as i wanted to see where it could go.
As for the Narrator (Robert Scarlato), he does a fantastic job of giving the characters life and personality. It made listening a very entertaining experience.
If you are a fan of supernatural fiction with a riveting storyline, then this is the book for you. Just do yourself a favour and read the first book to give you the full experience.
Yes, I would listen to the book again. But I couldn't decide which one is better. I don't think that one is better than the other. Both have their pro's and con's. Although I like some characteristics of listening the book like for example different impersonations from the narrator. He gives them life and I really like that. So as a personal a personal preference I would stick with the audio edition.
Darren all the time. I love all he has to go through and he knows how to deal with things like no one other. His personality is intriguing and I like that mysticism that revolves around him.
He brought action, drama, emotions and a well representation of each character. If I would just read the book, of course I would enjoy it also, there was an awesome cliff hanger from book 1 which will bring me those emotions I experienced. But Roberto Scarlato brings to life my imagination of how the story unfolds.
Definitely, I've been always so interested in this kind of science fiction so I enjoy these listenings and readings on a weekend free of my duties, with some headphones and I transport to these realities provided by these kind of books.
I've been intrigued now with the book 0 which gives us an insight of Mira's life from what can I see about the description, I think is going to be a complementary listening for this amazing story by Dima Zales & Anna Zaires. And last but not least, if there's going to be a sequel, please make it come faster!
After I have finished The Thought Readers, I was looking forward to the next installment, The Thought Pushers and when I finally got my hands on this one, I was so ecstatic to read it right away! Authors, Dima Zales and Anna Zaires, writes with a persuasive pen that will pull you deep into the story. From the first page, the readers get thrusted into the continuation of Darren's exploits with secrets unfolding page after page. Finally, he finds out his true identity– him not only being a reader, but a pusher at the same time; finding out that his shrink is a guide(less harsh term for a pusher); learning that he has an aunt and that pushers are not really their enemies like what Mira and Eugene believes. Darren also learns that the real killers of Mira and Eugene's, as well as his parents are not who they think. I don't want to give away too much info regarding the twists so it's up to you to find out! Get this book now! You can thank me later.
I liked both, be it audio version or the printed one.
Of course it's Darren! Darren is my favorite character, he is strong, powerful and intense!
I enjoyed it very much. So excited for this Book 2 and it has come to life! I always love to listen to interesting books like this one and the author really did a great job!
The story was good and interesting
I did not like his performance, that was the worst part of the book. It is hard to describe why it was irritating but it was almost like he spoke with a "swager" or was a talking crooner. It got to be far less irritating about mid way through the book probably because I just got more used to it.
The story had a number situations where the person could have used their abilities to avoid problems. Examples include a time when someone was shot and another when someone was in the hospital.
My books are water; those of the great geniuses are wine; (fortunately) everybody drinks water. - Mark Twain
Which would you rather be, a thought reader or a thought pusher? Read the book and you'll be able to answer the question.
This is the next book in the Mind dimensions series. It follows Darren as he learns more about himself, where he came from and what he is. Also followed are Mira and Eugene as their lives intertwine. He learns about his biological parents and more about his family. There are some really good twists that I did not see coming. The author has a great imagination and tells a terrific, fantastic story.
There is a lot of details so you can use your imagination to picture what is happening. In the beginning it starts out at a slow pace but picks up as you listen on. During the final chapters I was on the edge of my seat. The action is very good with just a slight amount of humor. The narrator has very good emotion while telling the story, he keeps me interested and wanting to hear more. I don't want to give away anything but by the end you will be getting into the storyline and not want it to end. I can't wait to read the next book!
