Ebook review: Free Souls
Four months have passed since Kira left home to join Julian's Jacker Freedom Alliance, but the hole in her heart still whistles empty where her boyfriend Raf used to be. She fills it with weapons training, JFA patrols, and an obsessive hunt for FBI agent Kestrel, ignoring Julian's worries about her safety and repeated attempts to recruit her for his revolutionary chat-casts. When anti-jacker politician Vellus surrounds Jackertown with the National Guard, Kira discovers there's more to Julian's concerns than she knew, but she's forced to take on a mission that neither want and that might be her last: assassinating Senator Vellus before he can snuff out Julian's revolution and the jackers she's come to love.

Like the other two books, the writing in this book is great. It's engaging and makes you want to know what's next. Unlike the other two books, I couldn't make that reach of 'yeah, this could totally happen'. Kira's jump in abilities from book two to three just felt too sudden, too convenient.
Kira's feelings for Raf felt desperate and out of character.
Despite the writer's privilege complaints, this book was good. It had great pacing, the emotional scenes had just the right amount of emotion, and the action scenes had an appropriate amount of description. I imagined what it would look like as a movie, and unless we got a look at the insides of people's heads it would be a lot of....staring...and the occasional person fainting. Not quite as interesting.
Still, if you've gotten to this book you've already been hooked by the first two so you already know you're going to get it. Go grab it.
