Here's a little tidbit about me, I prefer to read books where the protagonist is female. I think it's just because I can relate to them more. However, Elimination was the kind of book where I didn't care at all that the protagonist was male. And let me add that Rex was a very good character. Seriously, all of the characters were great. Some were great in an 'I love this guy/girl!' kind of way and some were great in an 'Oh, I hate this guy/girl!' kind of way. Both show great writing and a really great book.
Thank you to the author, Marina Epley, for sending this wonderful book to me! It is on the top of my recommendations list!
*Note: I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
It's not often one finds themselves at the forefront of a fantastic new YA series, and yet that is what's happened to this reviewer after reading author Marina Epley's Elimination, the first in the Mind Breaker Trilogy!
First, the description.
ELIMINATION is the first novel in THE MIND BREAKER trilogy, set in a violent dystopian world where governmental forces hunt down, imprison and even kill those with psychic abilities.
Rex is an eighteen-year-old mind breaker hoping to keep a low profile. Unfortunately, he was forced to use hypnosis on criminals during an attempted bank robbery, revealing his abilities. Now considered a national threat to society, he has to flee through devastated countryside in order to remain alive. Even worse, by going on the run, he’s endangering his one and only friend Kitty, another strong hypnotist.
Rex soon realizes that together they make a vulnerable target. And the only way to save Kitty is to allow himself to be captured, thus diverting attention while his friend escapes. But nothing goes as planned, as his actions only serve to push Kitty into an even worse situation than a life sentence in prison. With his world falling apart, Rex must figure out how to fix his accumulating mistakes and regain their freedom before it’s too late.
What Rex doesn’t yet understand, is that he may soon play a major role in preventing all-out war between ordinary humans and mind breakers, a war which could lead to total extinction of the entire human race.
The dystopian future created by Epley feels so real in this first book that one expects to open their front door and see it for themselves. The complex world that protagonist Rex is forced to navigate conjures up feelings of anxiousness, fear and loneliness that can mirror parts of our world.
What really makes me love this book is how similar in plot the novel mirrors both our world and the world created by legendary comic book company Marvel, and that is the world of the X-Men. The fear of the unknown or different showcases a human tendency to judge, hate and cast out people who don't follow the "social norm" that they create. It's a fantastic social point made through a well written and amazingly creative novel, and I can't wait to see more from this incredibly talented emerging author, so be sure to pick up your copy of Elimination: The Mind Breaker Trilogy #1 by Marina Epley today!
