A millennium into the future all children are tested for minder talents and the best are recruited for the Citizen Protection ServiceAgent Lièrén Sòng is recovering from a near fatal crash He should want nothing than to get back to using his talents to interrogate criminals for his covert CPS field unit but being sidelined gains new appeal when. After devouring the previous two entries in this series I was salivating for the latest sci fi adventure into this exciting colorful and intriguing future world in the distant stars the author created If you want it to make some sense scientifically while keeping the wonder of the inexplicable beside an action suspense and romance blend that will keep you turning pages here you goMinder Rising is a standalone story connected to a series through the world of the Central Galactic Concordance It shifts focus to a new setting and new characters but just as much danger suspense future fun developed characters and slow burn romance as the previous two I say two because there is a preuel that is worth the readLieren Song works for the Citizen Protection Service which is an organization to protect the people with mind or Minder powers from being in danger but also protect null humans from the dangers of Minders gone bad He is part of secret mission unit who track down the really bad ones He has two Minder powers that he can employ in his work Unfortunately he is put on light duty and office work while he recovers from a mission gone bad when his partner died and he nearly did While he is recovering he encounters single mom and bartender Imara Sesay and her twelve year old boy who has strong Minder gifts He spends time with regular people for the first time since he was sent away to train his Minder gifts for service and realizes his life is missing uite a bit But then he starts to realize that someone is disposing of everyone in his unit for an unknown reason even while he gets suspicious of the testing the CPS is doing on children to determine their Minder gifts the strengths and who gets placed He has always been loyal to the system but now sees that things aren t adding up particularly when Imara s son is on the verge of being tested and someone keeps trying to kill Lieren Imara doesn t want to get involved with Lieren no matter how wonderful he is because he is not sticking around and she has to think of her sonAnother brilliant entry in the series The plot is layered and well paced exciting but also develops well The characters are again what drives the story most for me They are involved in the action but also progress through growth internallyLieren is an interesting hero He s one of those little seen beta heroes Sure he s part of a special policing force who go after the big bads but he s an interrogator who is brought in after the capture not a soldier He s a rule follower and does his duty to the best of his ability His loyalty to his team and his purpose are his whole life until the HALO jump fall that nearly kills him and brings him to the point of change He s gentle kind polite and self effacing to a fault He doesn t have to be in charge and in fact doesn t want to be He is not threatened by Imara He respects her uick analytical mind and planning ability and follows her lead several times without it being a difficulty I loved that he didn t change in personality even as he worked through a crisis of conscience and fought for his life and those he cared about a few times He has honor and integrity which gets used against him at times but Imara and Darrit and his new circle of friends he is forming see this as strengths Imara is a great counterpart for Lieren When she was married she let her husband lead and trusted him to make the decisions and provide She learned to step up when he was gone for her son and herself She never wants to go back to that helpless and passive woman she was again She works two jobs that reuire her to be tough and decisive and now fears her son s strong Minder talent when she is a low level Minder She has strict rules about not getting involved with someone who can t commit to the long haul so tries to keep the attractive Lieren in the friend category He is tough to keep there the way he warms her heart by being good to her son and herselfThere is a mystery and also a political intrigue element like the earlier ones These drive the action to a pulse pounding big scene and some good twists Even though this is a standalone story I could see how it fit perfectly with the other stories like they are all pieces of the same puzzle and each adds to the overall pictureNicole Poole s narration work is excellent as usual She wowed me with not just all her voices including gender but the woman had to add in accents from Indian to Scottish and than one Asian language with some phrases She didn t miss a beat And her grasp of tone and pace was spot on I can t imagine enjoying this series without her telling me the storiesIn summary this was another abso fab entry in the series leaving me thirsty for Having sci fi and suspense mashed with romance is the best blend ever and I highly recommend theseMy thanks to Tantor Audio for the opportunity to listen to this book in exchange for an honest review

I enjoyed Overload Flux the first book in this series so much that I dived right into book 2 after I finished it Minder Rising has a very different tone and focus than the first book in the series but I think the different approach totally worked here We get to see a whole other side of the universe and a different perspective and it was great I had a great time reading Minder Rising Minder Rising is uite gently paced and I mean that in a positive way The plot points slowly emerge and progress and I loved seeing how it all played out Where in book 1 the focus is on the suspense and mystery and there s some action as well This one is focused on the characters and their stories and a hint of suspense Which works great for this story and I really enjoyed the book and I thought it was interesting how different the tone was compared to book 1 It s told from dual point of views Li r n got hurt in an accident and slowly he starts finding out truths and discovered that makes him doubt the CPS a bit Where Imara has a son who has a very strong minder talent and later in the book he has to go in for minder testing and the CPS becomes very interested in him I loved the character driven nature and the gentle pace of this book I didn t connect as fast with the two main characters as I did with the main character in book 1 but the I read the they grew on me And by the end of the book I was really fond of Li r n and Imara and the side characters Derrit and Rayle were great too The character really come to live in this book and I enjoyed reading about them and seeing them all interact with each otherIt was interesting to see Li r n slowly figure out the truth of what happened to his field team unit and also some things that were going on in the CPS He is uite the naive character at first and it s sad when that gets broken and he realizes what s really going on around him and how much he didn t notice at first I liked how his personality was this fun combination of uirkiness and a sort of formal polite behavior that was uniuely Li r n At the end of the book he has to choose between his job and helping the women and kid he grew to care about and I was so curious to see how it all would play out And I can only say that the conclusion was very satisfying and resolved all the plot point in a great wayImara is a great character too she cares a lot about her son and she is a very confident and capable character I liked her filer minder talent which seems so handy and fit her And there s a great twist surrounding her character later in the book I liked how determined she was to do the best for her son with working two books and also what she does later in the book to protect him It really shows how far she is willing to go for him I liked seeing that Derrit was fun to read about too I liked seeing him interact with his mother and Li r nThe romance is a very slow burn but it worked here I liked how they slowly got to know each other and even when they realized their mutual attraction it took them a long time to act on their feelings I wouldn t have minded a bit time seeing them as an actual couple as now there were very few scenes with that And they made for such a great couple I just wanted a bit of it But I am hoping we ll get to see them again in later books I did think they were great for each other and this author really writes her romances well Imara resists Li r n for a long time because he is a transient but she falls in love with him anyway as her heart doesn t listen to her head And Li r n knows his job will take him away from here and while thought he was fine with that he realizes he wants out of his lifeWhile it s set in the same world as book 1 there is very little connection between the two books so far but there are hints in how it all ties together I think there is an overarching plot line that s slowly emerging and the main telling about that is done in the epilogues actually There were a few times where they mentioned the case Luka worked on in book 1 as that s connected to Li r n as well and Imara has met Luka but that s basically it I am very curious to see how the series progresses and if we will see the main characters from the first two books againI loved how we learn about the world in this book Because of the different setting and focus and Li r n working for the CPS so we learn a lot about the CPS It also was great to see of this big planet which was the center of all the politics It was a very different part of the universe we got to see and at the end there is a bit of other parts of the galaxy we get to see as well which was pretty intriguing The whole world feels so real and well thought out even tough there is still so much to discover which makes me even excited to read books in this seriesTo summarize this was another awesome book It has a gentle pace and slow build romance that totally worked here The tone and focus of this one is very different than book 1 but I liked how this provided a very different feel of the world and what s going on While the main characters took some time to grow on me by the end I was really fond of them and was sad to say goodbye to them The slow build romance fits the pace of the book although I was sad we didn t get to see of them as a couple The storylines surrounding Li r n and the CPS and some difficult decisions he has to make were very interesting and I also liked how the plot line surrounding Derrit s minder talents progressed This book gives another view of the world and I enjoyed my time spent with this book and learning about this world All in all this was a great book and I am hoping to pick up the next book soonReread and audiobook reviewAfter I finished listening to Overload Flux I dove right into Minder Rising afterwards This is my re read review and audiobook review as I read it in e format the first timeJust like the first time I was again surprised at the difference in tone that Minder Rising had compared to Overload Flux but as I had now expected that I found I was able to enjoy it even than the first read through And while I love the first book a bit than this one Minder Rising is a great read and the difference in tone totally works for this story Now knowing what s coming next some of the hints and events had impactThis series has so much happening and uite a bit of foreshadowing and early hints going on and that makes it a delight to re read And spending time with the characters I ve grown fond of certainly helps too I really like Li r n Imara and also Imara s son Derrit and bartender Rayle I had to look up both their names spelling from my previous review as someone due to the audio I had no idea how their names were spelled The slow burn romance between Li r n and Imara is so much fun to see unfold and I also liked seeing how Li r n interacts with Derrit I liked Rayle even than in the first read He s such a fun character to read aboutSeeing Li r n go from naive and sheltered to opening his eyes to what the CPS does and finding what he can do about it is great to see And also how he opens his heart and finds his home by surrounding himself with people he cares about In a sense both Li r n and Imara s lives really get upended and changed in this book and I love the last few chapters seeing where they end up Again the narration was so well done I really like Nichole Poole s way of narrating and I think her style fits this book well She handles the accents really well and it was fun to hear her pronounce the foreign words this book has I had to get used to Li r n s voice a bit for a while as it seemed a bit too close to Luka s voice from book 1 but I ended up liking it in the end Imara Derrit and Rayle s voice she handled really well and their voices really reflected their personalities I am not sure if it s because of the audio or the re read but I find it easier to follow the story and the multiple threads and hints than when I first read it which is great To summarize I loved listening to Minder Rising I really enjoyed the narration and as I love this series so much it s great to re read it this way I liked getting to spend some time with Li r n Imara Derrit and Rayle See imara and Li r n fall in love And see how Li r n s life changes so much over the course of this book and seeing him become aware of what the CPS is doing and fighting for what he believes is the right mission All the little hints of foreshadowing are easier to spot now that I have an idea of what s coming next Nichole Poole does a great job with the narration she handles the accents so well and I like hearing how she pronounces the foreign words On to Pico s Crush next
