Eight months ago, Kira Moore revealed to the mindreading world that mindjackers like herself were hidden in their midst. Now she wonders if telling the truth was the right choice after all. As wild rumors spread, a powerful anti-jacker politician capitalizes on mindreaders' fears and strips jackers of their rights.

I love this series so far and have become entangled in the tough life that is the mind jacker. Just trying to be normal is almost impossible now and trying to not be locked up or worse is hard. This is a pattern often ignored. when you oppress a person or group that's when they are more likely to rebel. I am on the mind jacker side though I see the need for some system to protect the average mind reader.

Revenge. It's all I've lived for. Revenge against those who stacked the cards against me from the start. But I'm changing the deck now. I'm getting even. Born to a vampire, I wasn't supposed to survive - but I did. My name is Cassidy. Cassidy Edwards. And I'm the first of my kind. The job: Trapping a 16th-century Scottish Highlander of a vampire who just might be seduction itself. The team: A firedrake with an attitude, a werewolf with a problem, and an imp in dire need of rehab.

In 2065, corporate sponsored governments jockey for supremacy in the biotechnical arena. Bullets and missiles take a back seat to cyber-enhanced soldiers and pulse weapons. In this extreme environment, only the most hardened body and mind can survive. Calder McKenna was a failed experiment in the military's push for power. Now a special agent for the metro task force, he lives day by day trying to forget the ones that were lost, the ones that he could have saved.

"My name is Mike Ross. I'm a Ferryman. I help people with ghost problems, or ghosts with people problems. Funny thing, no one ever helps me with my problems. Civil War ghosts bent on killing me, Skinwalkers who just want my body, and a vindictive spirit linked both to my bloodline and my destiny... It turns out the dead still hold a good deal of influence over the world, and they don't want to give it up. I'm in way over my head. Fortunately, I'm too stubborn to quit."

The ferryman Ross keeps us entertained whether fighting dead ex's or dead civil war soldiers. This book will keep you guessing what the bigger picture is and what is going to happen next. I like the "shadow government" aspect with ghosts actually running the USA. I hope all give this book a listen.

Show me an amateur conjurer, and I'll stop him before he gets himself killed. That's the idea, anyway. But New York City isn't what it used to be, and I don't mean the recent crash. Amateur casters are calling up creatures they shouldn't be able to. And there's been a murder at the city's most hallowed cathedral, a message in blood on the victim's back the NYPD wants me to interpret, like yesterday.

this book has a great view of a town trying to survive the zombie apocalypse. I think the author did a good job of conveying the dangers, and shortcomings of the zombie apocalypse but also how working together you can try to survive.

Good book.
