Review: Mindwalker by Kate Dylan

Title: Mindwalker

Series:

Author: Kate Dylan

Eighteen-year-old Sil Sarrah is determined to die a legend. In the ten years she’s been rescuing imperilled field agents for the Syntex Corporation—by commandeering their minds from afar and leading them to safety—Sil hasn’t lost a single life. And she’s not about to start now.

She’s got twelve months left on the clock before the supercomputer grafted to her brain kills her, and she’s hell-bent on using that time to cement her legacy. Sil’s going to be the only Mindwalker to ever pitch a perfect game—even despite the debilitating glitches she’s experiencing. But when a critical mission goes south, Sil is forced to flee the very company she once called home.

Desperate to prove she’s no traitor, Sil infiltrates the Analog Army, an activist faction working to bring Syntex down. Her plan is to win back her employer’s trust by destroying the group from within. Instead, she and the Army’s reckless leader, Ryder, uncover a horrifying truth that threatens to undo all the good Sil’s ever done.

With her tech rapidly degrading and her new ally keeping dangerous secrets of his own, Sil must find a way to stop Syntex in order to save her friends, her reputation—and maybe even herself.

I was really excited to read this, it sounded unique and right up my alley!

Sil Sarrah is a mindwalker, she has tech implanted in her and she takes over people’s minds to get them out of trouble. But there’s a time limit on her life because of it.

After a mistake, Sil finds herself on the run trying to get answers and hangs with a resistance member, Ryder Stone, who is also on a quest for answers.

Firstly let me say that I nearly stopped reading this book 30% odd in because of 1 thing. The incessant use of ‘Christ that..’. It wasn’t just a few times it was used, it was sprinkled about like confetti and got right on my wick!

But really that is my only criticism.

There was intrigue, drama, action, twists with the story that totally hooked me. There was one bit that did make me pause…and reread….and think. It was how their world got to where it is now. ‘Radioactive storms, epidemics, tsunamis, droughts . . . every worst-case scenario in the book started killing us off.’ Time to start the bunker prepping!

I’m also a sucker for a leading guy and it appears I am a sucker for Ryder Stone! 

‘Do not let them rule you. Do not let them own you. Do not surrender control.’

  1. This book does sound interesting, though I know it can be very annoying when some word or phrase is used over and over again. I’ve been very curious about Mindwalker and figured it would be either very good or very bad. Sounds like it was mostly good. Excellent review!
