Synopsis:
Eight months ago, Kira Moore revealed to the mindreading world that mindjackers like herself were hidden in their midst. Now she wonders if telling the truth was the right choice after all. As wild rumors spread, a powerful anti-jacker politician capitalizes on mindreaders’ fears and strips jackers of their rights. While some jackers flee to Jackertown—a slum rife with jackworkers who trade mind control favors for cash—Kira and her family hide from the readers who fear her and jackers who hate her. But when a jacker Clan member makes Kira’s boyfriend Raf collapse in her arms, Kira is forced to save the people she loves by facing the thing she fears most: FBI agent Kestrel and his experimental torture chamber for jackers.


My Thoughts:
I don't know how else to start apart from.  I LOVED THIS!  I hope that's not too over the top.  This has got to be the first book this year, I've been able to sit and read within a few hours because I was so completely absorbed in the story that I refused to put it down.

I loved Open Minds but I must say Susan has outdone herself with Closed Hearts.  Once again I fell back into the world of the mindjackers so easily that it was hard when I'd finally finished  because I would have loved to have kept reading and reading.

Living with the aftermath of outing the Mindjackers Kira is forced to move with her family and live under an alias.  The good work she thought she was doing to help other mindjackers has blown up in her face and now she is one of the most hated people out.  Most jackers move to place now named Jackertown where it is not safe at all for mind readers and especially Kira.

I loved how we are introduced to so many new characters including Julian and Ava, as well as some loved and not so loved characters from book one.  Kira/Lucy has still got to be my most favourite character though.  She shows throughout the book and a strong loyalty to her family and Raf the one she loves.

I must admit there is an OH MY GOD! moment in the book which I shall not name.. but it had me brought almost to tears and while I was shocked at this part I can honestly say it gives the book a certain Wham!  that will push anyone into pleading for the third book early!

Closed Hearts is another great instalment into the Minjackers trilogy and I look forward to reading the third and last book.  If you liked Open Minds I'm sure you will love Closed Hearts!!
