Our book of the week at Scifi365.net is Andrei Cherascu’s excellent debut – Mindguard. Here’s why we like it:
by: Andrei Cherascu
Called out of semi-retirement, the telepath and Mindguard Sheldon Ayers is tasked with protecting an information package located inside the mind of a young woman who claims the knowledge she holds is vital to the future of mankind. Sheldon and his team must help her cross the most dangerous territory in the man-inhabited universe – the Djago Desert.
Hunted by the Enforcement Unit – the all-powerful Military arm of the Interstellar Federation of Common Origin – Sheldon’s team must fight to keep the carrier alive and guard the integrity of her mind. But nobody suspects that Sheldon also has a dark secret, and it could end up changing the fate of the mission.
Careful, intricate plot lines reminiscent of Greg Bear combine with characters whose fates you will care about – no matter their motivation.
This is the type of novel that you might find in an independent bookstore with ‘Staff Recommendation’ and a hand-written review. One for all Science Fiction fans.
