Goodreads Synopsis:
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.



My Thoughts:
Fia is such a kick ass heroine. She is snarky, stubborn, ruthless and caring all bundled into this complex character. She has spent her life trying to protect her older sister Annie from the horrible truth that has becomes their lives. All the while loosing herself more and more in the process. But Fia will stop at nothing to keep Annie safe, even if it means dying in the process.

Annie has alwasys relied on her little sister more than she should. But Fia assumed the role and Annie went along with it. Annie doesn't realize all the truly horrible things that Fia has had to do in order to keep her safe.  But slowly Annie is starting to realize just how much Fia has given up. Annie is determined to give Fia her life back.

James is a calculating, ambitious and cold hearted boy who has been brought on to run his father's "company". But is James really as cold hearted as he seems? He has taken an interest in Fia. More than just a student/teacher relationship. But how far will James go to make sure his plans are fulfilled? 

Adam is an unknowing player in this whole endeavour. But he is much more important than anyone realizes. Fia has taken a liking to Adam. Which is why, when she decides to save his life instead of taking it, that her world is turned upside down. But just how important is he?

I really enjoyed Mind Games. It is a roller coaster ride for sure. I really enjoy kick ass heroines who do not need to rely on a man in order to keep themselves safe. The dual POV's in Mind Games are great. It gives you such a better insight into each sister's lives. There is a lot of action and suspense and drama. 

Mind Games is definitely a page turner. Plus it doesn't get any better than a teenage girl being able to kick a grown mans ass!
