      Another installment of this telepathy-themed goodiness. Guild being nasty and 'Guild First', police being choosy, Adam being moody (though not so much as before), telepahy being pervasive and technology feared. All is OK in this world.Q:Lying in a society of telepaths was possible, but just barely. The key was not to think about the lie at all—something akin to spinning a plate on top of your head while standing on one foot and reciting multiplication tables—or to lie to yourself first, and [...]

      This was great. The best so far.Marked has an excellent summary. It's just deceiving enough to make you pay attention. At the same time, it only touches upon the things that may happen in the book (or at least close to it). One thing is certain, it doesn't prepare you for the anger you'll feel at least four, if not more, times. There are no clear sides here to hold on to. Most of the characters are so infuriatingly selfish and annoying it drove me crazy.The Guild is hypocritical and enforces its [...]

      Third in the Mindspace Investigations dystopian-like science fiction detective series set in Atlanta and revolving around Adam, a telepath who is also a recovering addict. My Take Wow. I do like the sound of the victim's house. I want a door like his! Marked is so full of twists and turns…one minute it looks as if Kara is setting Adam up, and considering what's at stake, I am so not liking her for what she's putting Adam through. Considering his background and past experiences with Enforcement [...]

      I'm sensing something in Mindspace. Wait I think it'sExtreme disappointment.I was so excited about this book, since the second book was so fantastic. But it seems like everything Alex Hughes learned from book one to two was forgotten.The first half of this book has no personality, no real tension, and while the second has tension galore, there are so many missed opportunities and unanswered questions (and not in the good way, like, oh, we'll find out next book).Part of what made book two so good [...]

    5. Bryan Brown on said:

      I still like this character a lot although this book didn't feel as strong to me as the first two. After all the events the increased freedom he has in this book makes me really question his recovery. I think he is still way to eager to keep secrets from those who are trying their best to support him, not to mention the fact that I don't see him performing any daily rituals to aid his recovery. In fact other than a weekly meeting with Schwartz he seems to be missing a lot of things that would ke [...]

      Originally published at The Book PushersAlex Hughes’ Mindspace Investigations series takes place in a near-future post-apocalyptic version of Atlanta. The worldbuilding and the relationships get more and more complicated with each book, and the information about what went wrong in the not-too-distant past (or in our not-too-distant future) builds more depth and gets more interesting.This is not a series where you can start in the middle. If urban fantasy with a scientific basis sounds good to [...]

      openbooksociety/article/maBrought to you by OBS reviewer Heidimarked-mindspace-investigations-alex-hughesAdam Ward is back in the third installment of Alex Hughes’s Mindspace Investigations series. Adam is finally recovering from his mind injury and is freelancing for the Atlanta PD as an interrogator. He gets to work with Cherabino, who is anxiously waiting for the link Adam accidentally made to fade, as he promised it would.But when Adam’s ex calls on him for help to find who murdered her [...]

    8. Derek Brown on said:

      What did I think? In a word, underwhelming. I'm three books in now and should be getting more excited about these characters, not less. I found the plot in this one messier than the first two, and found the focus kept getting pulled between the Wright murder, the continuing threat of unemployment, and all that drama going on at the guild. (Babylon 5's Psi Corp much?) But my biggest issue with the series hasn't changed since the first book. For a guy who claims to hate saying "I'm sorry", Adam se [...]

      Marked is one of those books that I need to wait a few days before reading again. The action is intense, and Adam's life and recovery appear destined for failure. His support system is shattered with his babysitter gone, his sponsor still recovering, and his job security in question.Recovery from addiction is a constant struggle, but Adam appears to turn a very important corner in Marked. I admit I knew the identity of one villain early, but was completely surprised by the other. Cherubino does [...]

    10. Amyiw on said:

      So this was really good too. It started out frustrating as he once again puts himself in the range of the Guild and Kara and they are, IMO, untrustworthy. Yes, I get that he has a connection to Kara but I think it is high time to leave it behind. OK, once the beginning gets him entwined in Guild politics and strong arm tactics again, and I accepted that, the book moved along smoothly and I enjoyed the ride as he bounded through the investigations. On the personal, his relationship to Cherabino d [...]

    11. Barbara on said:

      Oh my, this story was even more intense than the first two, I loved it! Once again Adam Ward is trying to keep his job with the Atlanta PD, which helps keep him sane and off the drug he was addicted to. When his ex, Kara, begs for his help to prove her uncle did not kill himself, he’s sucked into Guild affairs and politics once again, always a risky proposition. He manages to get grudging approval to help with the investigation, and then proceeds to put himself in even more danger with every s [...]

    12. Harris on said:

      Maybe I've read too many urban fantasy/SF procedurals. Maybe the world that the Mindspace series takes place in doesn't resonate with me the way that the Laundry Files or the Charles Stross books do. But after three books, I'm basically ready to drop the Mindspace series from my reading list. I just have no real interest in it any more. The Telepath Guild feels too much like a mustache twirling batch of Bester clones running Psi-Corps (corps is mother, corps is father), the Tech Wars back story [...]

    13. Ubiquitousbastard on said:

      First off, this book gives me no strong feelings. It wasn't unpleasant to read, but it all sort of felt a bit flat. Like more could have been done with, I mean, I didn't even realize I had passed the plot resolution until I saw I was almost on the last page. Then I was literally asking myself: was that it? Is it over? But nothing really happened.There were a few good parts I guess, lightly good, interesting to some degree at least. Basically, this book was just too mediocre all over, but not in [...]

    14. Jennifer on said:

      This is my favorite--so far--of the Mindspace novels. The stakes this time are life-and-death, as Adam continues to struggle with addiction and the consequences of the past while trying to move forward with his life. At the same time, a call for help that renews past alliances in the Guild might also destroy the world he's building in the present. While it frustrates me sometimes that it often seems like the entire universe is arrayed against Adam, his courage and fortitude make him an admirable [...]

    15. Fantasy Literature on said:

      My friendship with Adam has covered three novels now. Alex Hughes has taken me into a different future of the world I live in and made it very real for me, but the best part is that I’ve befriended a hero who I completely understand and admire. That’s right, I admire Adam the drug addict.In Marked, the third book in Hughes’ MINDSPACE INVESTIGATIONS Read More fantasyliterature/revi

    16. Hilary on said:

      Politics and telepaths no, it's not Babylon 5. Adam's job is at risk, his partnership may be getting better (or worse), and people he respects might not be all they appear. Intrigue, backstabbing (metaphorical), and sanity very much at stake keep him on the move, trying to track down the conspiracy before some real harm is done.

    17. Sionna on said:

      I still really like this series and I flew through this book. The thing is, the romance between Adam and Isabella feels flat to me. Somewhat. I kinda get it, but all the reader really sees is their work relationship. I'm a bit worried about how this will progress.Poor ADAM! I feel like I keep thinking this. Anyhow the mystery was pretty interesting and I look forward to the next book :)

    18. Veronica on said:

      I thoroughly enjoyed this novel and found it quite interesting. I was lost a few times but that happens when you enter a series midway. The characters were all well developed especially the protagonist. And the plot is certainly SF. Well written.

    19. Sarah on said:

      As Adam grows and changes in these books, the building relationships feel natural to me. Things are starting to form a bigger picture now, an issue that can take multiple books to work through. The writing style paints wonderful pictures of the world, making it the world I live in fall away.

    20. Sasha on said:

      "Marked" is the third installment of Alex Hughes' Mindspace Investigations series. So if you haven't read the first two ("Clean" and "Sharp"), I suggest you do that, or you won't understand anything.I've got to say, while many find the third book to be lacking compared to the other two, I actually find this the best one of the three. I think Hughes got around to focus the main character's feelings, so he wasn't permanently whining anymore. Then again, he is a (former) drug addict, and if I count [...]

      Disclosure: I received a review copy from the author in exchange for a honest review.Marked, the third installment in the Mindspace Investigation series was another great addition! Like the first two books in the series, Adam a level eight telepath helps with some interviews for the Atlanta PD and on occasions assist with Detective Cherabino on her homicides cases. Adam was kicked out of the Guild (Organization for people with special abilities) a long time ago for drug addiction but no matter h [...]

      I really enjoyed this third book in the Mindspace series. I've become quite fond of Adam. He seems harder in this book, tougher, but not colder. And also more determined to stay on the wagon. Adam has come a long way -- he was held by his addiction when we first met him. Now he takes charge more. He refuses to lay down and die. (view spoiler)[His life really sucked for much of this book (except for the few moments he got to spend alone with Cherabino). The Guild are a bunch of assholes. Just tho [...]

      This is a series book for sure, and there is so much series development it’s hard to talk about anything without spoilers. Just SQUEE! and YAY! should be enough to cover my review.No? You need more? Of course you do. I know I do.The characters in this book continue to develop, with lots of page time for Adam and Cherabino, and the Guild too. Yes, the Guild is finally playing a huge part in a book, and the more I learn, the less I like them. As a whole, the Guild is very inclusive and exclusive [...]

      I have been looking forward to Book 3 in the Mindspace Investigation series. After reading it I came away with mixed feelings. Before I go further I do want to say that this is not a series you just drop into. Go back to the beginning and start with book one, Clean.On the plus side Marked continued with the world building started in the first two books. There is more background about the Tech Wars and the Guild. Along with the world building the characters continue to be fleshed out. Finally Ada [...]

      I hadn't read the previous two books, but that was not issue for me entering here. This is a detective novel with telepaths. The lead, Adam, is a recovering drug user (the beginning of the first book) who has been kicked out of the Guild (the telepaths' organization) and he's not loved by the "normals" (regular humans) because he's a telepath. He's a freelancer for the Atlanta PD on screening suspects. It's not a lot of money, but it's a living.He's contacted by his ex-fiancé to investigate the [...]

    29. Keith Ross on said:

      Marked continues the story of Adam Ward the drug-addicted telepath. I feel that the quality is beginning to drop off here, as the plot was much, much weaker than previous two stories and I felt that it had a very unrealistic "gotcha" conclusion. Still, I decided not to score the book lower because it still held my attention completely throughout reading it and I feel that sometimes it's okay for the story to be more about world-building and character development than strict police procedural cri [...]
