MIND GAMES by Kiersten White will be released in the U.S. on February 19, 2013 in hardcover, audio and eBook formats. It is currently available to pre-order online in all formats at AMAZON and in hardcover and eBook formats at BARNES & NOBLE.
Published by HarperTeen, the print edition is 256 pages.
MIND GAMES is the first book in a new series of the same name by author Kiersten White. The second book in the series, currently untitled, is slated for release in 2014.
While I am not entirely familiar with each and every one of the books releasing the week of February 19th, I knew there was absolutely no way I wouldn’t choose Kiersten White’s MIND GAMES as the book to watch this week.
I totally adored the author’s Paranormalcy series. So much so that I’ve refused to say goodbye to it. But when I heard that she was writing a book called MIND GAMES my curiosity was immediately piqued.
And when I read the description it sounded just as awesome as the title. A story of one sister with “flawless instincts,” another with “visions of the future” and a school that uses their abilities in “twisted, unthinkable ways” sounds dark and disturbing and totally creepy.
Definitely my kind of book.
I cannot wait to meet Fia and Annie and learn just what abilities they have and in just what ways they’ll be forced to use them. And I can’t wait to see just what mind games are played and who will be these sisters’ victims.
The description promises an “edgy” and “intense psychological thriller” and I am so excited to get the chance to see for myself just how “heartstoppingly intense” it will be.
As a fan of the author and of books that are a bit darker, a bit edgier, I just had to put her upcoming novel MIND GAMES in the spotlight this week.
And while I haven’t taken a peek, USA Today has an excerpt, if you want to get an advanced look, HERE.
I decided to include the book’s trailer although I’m not completely sure I’m in love with it. It has a more kick-a** action/adventure feel than a psychological thriller. And the narrator’s voice doesn’t lend itself to that “slick” and “edgy” vibe the description promised.
But it does hint at just what types of things are being asked of these girls so I just had to include it.
Places to Watch
About the Book
Fia was born with flawless instincts. Her first impulse, her gut feeling, is always exactly right. Her sister, Annie, is blind to the world around her—except when her mind is gripped by strange visions of the future.
Trapped in a school that uses girls with extraordinary powers as tools for corporate espionage, Annie and Fia are forced to choose over and over between using their abilities in twisted, unthinkable ways… or risking each other’s lives by refusing to obey.
In a stunning departure from her New York Times bestselling Paranormalcy trilogy, Kiersten White delivers a slick, edgy, heartstoppingly intense psychological thriller about two sisters determined to protect each other—no matter the cost.
