Mind Games (The Disillusionists #1)

Mind Games (The Disillusionists Trilogy, #1)


Justine Jones has a secret. A hardcore hypochondriac, she's convinced a blood vessel is about to burst in her brain. Then, out of the blue, a startlingly handsome man named Packard peers into Justine's soul and invites her to join his private crime-fighting team. It's a once-in-a-lifetime deal. With a little of Packard's hands-on training, Justine can weaponize her neurosis, turning it outward on Midcity's worst criminals, and finally get the freedom from fear she's always craved. End of problem.

Or is it?

In Midcity, a dashing police chief is fighting a unique breed of outlaw with more than human powers. And while Justine's first missions, including one against a nymphomaniac husband-killer, are thrilling successes, there is more to Packard than meets the eye. Soon, while battling her attraction to two very different men, Justine is plunging deeper into a world of wizardry, eroticism, and cosmic secrets. With Packard's help, Justine has freed herself from her madness - only to discover a reality more frightening than anyone's worst fears.


First, there was Anzu’s brain. Then a little crazy gnome claimed it as his home. That gnome had big plans for Anzu’s brain, and he kept on guiding her book reviews for a long time. Until the day Anzu started reading Mind Games. Then two more gnomes invaded her brain, and confusion reigned.

Each gnome had a different opinion regarding certain parts of the book. In order to please everyone, Anzu allowed each gnome to write its opinion in her review.

The beginning (Gnome 1)
Lots of mentions of a certain vein star syndrome which seemed important, but my mind failed to remember and care about it. Some other issues regarding mind powers, highcaps and all that. No idea what those are and how these things will affect the story. Justine’s issues were kind of weird. I had no idea how everything will connect.

The middle towards end (Gnome 2)
Holy fucking goose people this book is awesome! I have no idea what’s going to happen, and I love it. Hit me Carolyn Crane! I said hit me goddammit!!

The end (Gnome 3)
I was so happy when Justine ended her relationship with Cubby. Finally the love triangle will end! Finally Justine will hook up with Packard. Awesome stuff! And then Justine gets her final assignment, and I can’t handle the excitement and pressure and, most importantly, the fear of something dreadful happening to her. Otto Sanchez seems like a bad guy. Really bad.

But then something happens. Something so big that the whole book changes for me.

That is all.
