Mind Games by Teri Terry

Synopsis (from Goodreads

Pages: 448
Publisher: Orchard Books
Released: 5th of March 2014

Luna is a no-hoper with a secret: in a world of illusion, she can see what is real. But can she see the truth before it is too late? 

Luna has always been able to exist in virtual and real worlds at the same time, a secret she is warned to keep. She hides her ability by being a Refuser: excluded by choice from the virtual spheres others inhabit. But when she is singled out for testing, she can’t hide any longer. 

The safest thing to do would be to fail, to go back to a dead-end life, no future. But Luna is starting to hope for something better, and hope is a dangerous thing...

What I Have To Say 

This lived up to my expectations of it, which were pretty high after how amazing the Slated trilogy was. While the concept of society being controlled by cybernetics is far from new, authors like Terri Terry continue to find fresh and exciting ways to build on the idea, making their stories interesting and unique.

One of the things that I loved about Mind Games, was how Terry looked into the angles of virtual reality and implants that I haven't seen before. She made the world detailed by included Refusers and people who could have implants due to religious or medical reasons and created a whole society of hackers who use their computer skills to play around with the virtual worlds.

I also loved Terry's references to her own books. It was quite nice to get that reminder of the series even though it's now over.

Whether you have read the Slated trilogy or are just curious to see what this book is like. I urge you to check it out.
