I received a free copy of Mind Games from the publisher in return for an honest review.
In a world where almost everyone lives, learns and plays in virtual worlds, Luna is one of the few who refuses the implant that makes this possible. Luna is a Refuser, she learns the old fashioned way and she lives in the real world, but she has a secret. Can she protect that secret and herself from PareCo, the creators of the implants and the virtual worlds.
I really enjoyed this one, the writing style flowed very well and it was a pleasure to read. The world building made everything easy to picture in my minds eye, it really made the book stand out and feel real.
I can see technology easily heading this way, it's not outside the realms of believability that this could actually become reality in the future. The plot was really intriguing and unique and although there is a frightening reality to the consequences of something like this happening, I couldn't help but think how much fun being able to access virtual worlds in this way would be.
The different take on hackers was refreshing and I really was not expecting that twist at the end. I'm not going to give away any of the plot, but the shocking reality of those who hold the power and how far they will go to maintain that power is scary believable.
The only thing I can say I'm not a fan of is the cover, it wouldn't catch my attention and draw me to pick up the book to find out more.
