Mind Gamesby Carolyn Crane
Synopses & Reviews
Wow Crane's writing style brings to mind old-school noir, with the compelling attitude of superheroes from a graphic novel. A masterful blend of dark and light, good and bad and all the grays in between, it will draw readers thoroughly into her tale, as they root for the good guys--while trying to figure out just who the good guys are. The ending promises more adventures, and that is a very good thing. 4.5 stars--Romantic Times
With a twisty, edgy storyline, a unique premise and a fascinating heroine, Mind Games jumpstarts a smart and original urban fantasy series. A fabulous debut --Meljean Brook, The Guardians series
Carolyn Crane writes with deft and evocative flair, creating a fantasy-noir world touched with comic book cool. With a twisty plot, a unique heroine, memorable supporting characters, and an amazingly fresh premise, debut novel Mind Games is a delicious, unforgettable delight. I cant wait for the next book --Ann Aguirre, author of Blue Diablo
Carolyn Crane's debut novel is a brilliant original in every way. Just when I think that urban fantasy heroines are becoming too cliched and predictable, Mind Games blows me out of the water with its unique premise. Justine does not wield a katana, or ride a Harley, or kick like a ninja. Instead she fights with her mind, and speaking as a nerd myself, I find that concept oh so sexy.--dirtysexybooks.com
