ebook review: Closed hearts
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. While some jackers flee to Jackertown—a slum rife with jackworkers who trade mind control favors for cash—Kira and her family hide from the readers who fear her and jackers who hate her. But when a jacker Clan member makes Kira’s boyfriend Raf collapse in her arms, Kira is forced to save the people she loves by facing the thing she fears most: FBI agent Kestrel and his experimental torture chamber for jackers.

Closed hearts was a great continuation of the Jackers series. Now embracing her gifts, Kira starts training her abilities. This book series had me reading straight through, and the introduction of the Jackertown Gang was amazing. By the end of the book we know their intentions, but I felt really bad that Kira's first instinct is "run, escape, now." By the end of everything it's hard to imagine her *not* having some kind of PTSD. I would love to see this series as a movie or mini series, but only if there's a creative way to show the act of jacking and reading. I mean, 80% of this series happens inside people's heads. That won't be easy.
My recommendation: Well, if you're going to buy the first and second already, might as well save and get the whole series as a box set. Definitely buy.
