Review of Free Souls (Book 3 of the Mindjack Trilogy)


Four months have passed since Kira left home to join Julian’s Jacker Freedom Alliance, but the hole in her heart still whistles empty where her boyfriend Raf used to be. She fills it with weapons training, JFA patrols, and an obsessive hunt for FBI agent Kestrel, ignoring Julian’s worries about her
safety and repeated attempts to recruit her for his revolutionary chat-casts. When anti-jacker politician Vellus surrounds Jackertown with the National Guard, Kira discovers there’s more to Julian’s concerns than she knew, but she’s forced to take on a mission that neither want and that might be her last: assassinating Senator Vellus before he can snuff out Julian’s revolution and
the jackers she’s come to love.

The final book in the Mindjack Trilogy tied up a lot of loose ends.  I was pleased with the ending and how the series was wrapped up.  In this book, Kira is fully vested with the JFA and we learn a bit more about Julian and Kira’s relationship.  It still did lack some of the personality depths I would have liked, but it worked okay.

The main disappointment I had is there is no epilogue, and we don’t get a final word on Raf’s life and how it will work out.  It bothered me that Kira was easy to let him go, even when he was trying to find out information that was taken from his mind in the previous book.  The first two books spoke about her love for Raf and his devotion to her, but it seems to have just gone away in a short amount of time.  I guess for teenagers that does happen at times, so it can work.  I was just disappointed in that aspect.

There was plenty of action and surprises in this book, so I do recommend reading the trilogy.  Just for the lack of Raf in the final book, I would give 3.5 out of 5.  I think the other books were better, but, like I said, this did wrap up a lot of the on-going issues, so it is a pretty decent ending.
