The first in an exciting new sci-fi series that's being described as Blade Runner meets X-Men

Two hundred and fifty years after the world was nearly wiped out by nuclear war, what's left of society fights over the scraps of the Earth as the rich and powerful plan to ascend in secret to another planet. But the deadly new breed of humanity that the rulers have enslaved to protect their interests are about to change everything.

K.M. Ruiz's Mind Storm is the rip-roaring tale of Threnody Corwin, a "psion" with the ability to channel electricity like lightning through anything she touches. As a solider-slave for the human government, Threnody is recruited by an unknown enemy: the scion of Earth's most powerful (and supposedly human) family, the Serca Syndicate. But Lucas Serca is far from human and he intends to make Threnody and her fellow psions meet their destiny, no matter how many people he has to kill to do it.

Mind Storm is the first of two books chronicling the fight for survival by the psions and other "gene-trash" humans, before they're killed by the racist world government, or left to die on a crumbling Earth.

A very enjoyable dystopian novel that combines elements of X-Men and Blade Runner.

comic book style, fun but lacks depth, good character intro and interesting span of history concept
