Editorial Reviews

Review

“There is more action in this explosive sequel. The final confrontation between Lukas and his confederates and Nathan will blow your mind….This is not your gentle discovery of psion talent (telepathy, empath, precog) found in early works of Anne McCaffrey or Andre Norton. It is powerful, violent adult science fiction.”—Examiner.com

“The action is nonstop, insanely violent and mostly lethal, like X-Men on steroids…It's a tribute to Ruiz's skill that, somehow, when a winner finally emerges, it's the one you've been rooting for.”—Kirkus

“Kaleidoscopically intricate shifting alliances and relationships, terrifying mental tortures, and near-death experiences and resurrections drive this saga of revolt and renewal and leave plenty of room for future installments.” —Publishers Weekly

“Earth is damaged beyond recovery, so the World Court, urged on by powerful magnate Nathan Serca, continues with its plans to transfer the "purest" members of humanity—those free of psionic genetic markers for five generations—to Mars, where a new life awaits them. Unwilling to die gracefully when their time comes, a group of rogue psions, led by Nathan's son Lucas, himself a powerful mutant, seeks to thwart the World Court's master plan. Guided by the visions of a prescient child from two centuries ago, Lucas and his team led by Threnody Corwin put into action a daring scheme that will either save or destroy the world.

 VERDICT This sequel to Mind Storm combines the rapid-fire pacing of superhero fiction with the cutting-edge technology and social dystopia of cyberpunk and should attract most sf readers.”—Library Journal

Praise for Mind Storm:

"K.M. Ruiz’s Mind Storm not only solidifies the beginning of an exciting new series, but heralds the debut of a notable new voice in the sci-fi genre." —Renee C. Fountain, New York Journal of Books

"The characters are fully fleshed out, with bureaucrats, shady businessmen, Mafia-like organizations, and soldiers. Each has an emotional depth that can be related to by the reader. Those who enjoy tales of telepathy and paranormal abilities will thoroughly enjoy this well-paced story." —Booklist

"Mind Storm hurls you two hundred and fifty years into a ferociously possible future where the mind has long since escaped the cage of the body and roams free and wild and dangerous. Total, delicious immersion into a world rendered startlingly real by white-hot writing skill." —Whitley Strieber, bestselling author of The Day After Tomorrow, The Hunger and Communion

"To term Mind Storm a thriller, even a post-apocalyptic thriller, doesn't fully describe the novel, because it's also a study in psychological deception and self-deception in a devastated future Earth where the greater the power one has, the greater the deception required, making the book both unsettling and a parable for our time." —L.E. Modesitt Jr., Bestselling author of Legacies

"A fast and furious vision of a very dark future...one of the best reads of the year." —Nate Kenyon, award-winning author of Sparrow Rock and Starcraft Ghost: Spectres

"Mutants, martyrs, mayhem, Mars, and the Mob--this book has it all and leaves you craving yet more of this broken and battered world." —Rob Thurman, author of The Cal Leandros and The Chimera series

"Two-hundred and fifty years after a nuclear war psion-mutant Threnody Corwin battles to stay alive in a cutthroat world where elites rule a twisted society. Mind Storm crackles with pent-up energy, fresh ideas, and crisp dialog.  It flies like a bullet!" —William C. Dietz, author of the Legion of the Damned series

"Heroine, Threnody Corwin battle[s] the supposedly human Serca Syndicate's psionic Warhounds in excruciating scenes of physical and mental agony, while...renegade...Lucas Serca dreams of saving the psions and unregistered human scavengers and making a better world...Ruiz's tale will appeal to military SF fans." —Publishers Weekly

I thoroughly enjoyed this sequel to Mindstorm. It's got all the great classic dystopian elements: nuclear war, limited resources, and class issues. It also has great relationships without going into any romance, unless the reader wants it. It also followed the path that Mindstorm set. It wasn't predictable, but it also didn't rewrite the rules that Mindstorm set.

I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys science fiction or post-apocalyptic fiction.

Format: Hardcover
Two and a half centuries have passed since the global nuclear war eradicated much of the population. The planet has not recovered from the radiation battering. However, one thing remains the same from the pre-war; a small group of wealthy "registered" as the five generations of throwback purebred humanity World Court led currently by Nathan Serca rules over the short lived Stryker force psions who possess psi skills.

To escape the dying planet that he cedes to the psions, the gene trash and his son by leaving for the Mars Colony of the Pure, Nathan hides his psi powers. His traitorous son Lucas has joined a rebel syndicate of former Strykers led by Threnody Corwin. She and her team hope to save the world for the humans while the World Court wants them dead so they can continue to exploit psi and human. However, Threnody is unaware that the Pure Lucas and his warhounds are of her kind.

The second Strykers Syndicate futuristic post-apocalyptic thriller (see Mind Storm) is an exciting gory military science fiction thriller that continues the blood and guts flow as the countdown to earth's demise is running out. Fast-paced and loaded with feral action, the storyline never digs deep into what any of the prime three surviving groups think re a dying planet except tor the World Court leaving behind what they wrought as they reject accountability. Still fans who enjoy blood and guts will want to read Terminal Pont as mankind's reign is through.

I am very selective about what I dedicate my time to and I am glad I read this series. As a busy individual, I don't have much time for leisurely reading. After reading Mindstorm, I couldn't wait for another addition and this book didn't disappoint. I really hope they make a movie out of these!
