Book Description

SHORT NOVELLA

Twenty-three-year-old Sasha is in search of a mindjacker Clan that won't force him to use his unique skill--he can't face the prospect of erasing any more souls. A revolutionary Clan leader offers him a chance to serve a higher purpose, but Sasha's wary that it's only a trick to use his ability. When a beautiful female jacker seeks refuge with them, and her former Clan leader wants her special skill back at any cost, Sasha has to decide if there are any causes worth the price of using his ability one more time.

The Scribe is a short novella (12,000 words or 40 pages) in the Mindjack Origins series, which are companion stories to the bestselling Mindjack Trilogy. The Scribe is Sasha's story and takes place in the time period between Open Minds and Closed Hearts. It contains (minor) spoilers for those two novels.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Little Mindjack Snack October 1, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
So, so happy to have the chance to tell you about these two short novellas (The Scribe, The Handler) that go along with the Mindjack Series by Susan Quinn. I have reviewed the first two novels, Open Minds and Closed Hearts on my blog. I loved them.

I just love when authors give us these novellas. For me, it serves two roles. First, it feeds me need to read more in between the actual full length novels. A little snack at intermission. :) Second, it gives me a glimpse into the lives, emotions and history of individual characters. It's awesome. Now I love Julian and Sasha even more.

These two novellas are fantastic. Julian and Sasha are both introduced in book two of this series and if you have read book two you will be wondering about them both. I sure was. Your heart will break just a little for Sasha. Well, maybe a lot.

My thanks to Susan Quinn for allowing me a chance to read and review these novellas. Love, love, love. I cannot wait to read the next installment in the Mindjack series, Free Souls.

5.0 out of 5 stars Character Building September 9, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
It had been long enough since I read Closed Hearts that I couldn't remember much about Sasha until The Scribe made me recall wanting to know more about him. Now I do, and I can say Susan did an excellent job of creating a soul so ruined that he needs more than Julian's skill at handling to make something useful out of the shambles.

Susan's symbolism is great. With his life in the toilet, Sasha works to build a bathroom while he tries to rebuild his character destroyed by Arlis, a rival clean leader who forced Sasha to erase other people's personalities. Then, along comes Ava to clean up Sasha's act. He doesn't know what to make of her, a reader who's more like a linker. He doesn't even know what his own emotions are trying to tell him. He's too confused to hit the nail on the head.

But Ava trusts him. I can't tell you whether he will do the one thing he's sworn never to do again to protect a girl who sees something in him that he never knew existed: redemption. Oh, and love.

fun to read writting and an intriguing concept as a plot, it has gotten hard to find sci-fi that is intriguing anymore, but this series succeeds.

4.0 out of 5 stars Favorite of the Origins October 4, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is my favorite of the Mindjack Origins series. It is always a great experience to be able to continue in a series that you love but from the perspectives of other characters. The author did a great job switching heads and getting us to understand the different view points and journeys.
