In a postprivacy future, secrets are illegal and all communication is supervised. Telepaths are registered and recruited by a government with no qualms about invading the minds of its citizens. Fugitive psychics are hunted by the Bureau of Counterpsychic Affairs, or Countermind.

Alan Izaki is one such fugitive, as well as a hacker, grifter, and thief.
Countermind agent Jack Smith is hunting him through the twisted underbelly of Hong Kong.

But Alan possesses a secret so dangerous and profound it will not only shake Smith’s loyalties, but the foundations of their society.

And Alan isn’t the only one on the run. Rogue psychic Arissa binti Noor escapes Countermind, in search of brilliant game designer Feng Huang. She hopes that together, they can destroy the government’s intrusive Senex monitoring system.

Their goals seem at odds, and their lives are destined to collide. When they do, three very different people must question their alliances and their future, because everything is about to change.

I am just going to be completely honest when I say that this book was totally not my cup of tea. I honestly did not enjoy this book and was only able to make it too 45 percent of the book before I finally just gave up.

I gave this book a three star rating in the respect that this book was something that I did not enjoy but that I do feel that other people may enjoy it more then I did.

My main reasoning behind not enjoying this book is because it is not an easy book to follow in my opinion. It is a very technical read which for the type of book it is, it is probably a good thing but I, myself felt like I was overwhelmed while trying to read it so I never was able to connect with any of the characters. I felt like I spent more time trying to figure out what exactly it is that was going on then I did enjoying what I was reading.

Even with getting to the 40% mark in the book, I am still not sure what it is that I read. So in my opinion that is not a good thing. I love supernatural books but I also love a book that I am able to connect with and also able to be engrossed in what is happening. This was just not the book in that respect for me.

With all that said, I do believe that there is people who will enjoy a read like this and will be fulfilled after reading it. I do not want to discourage anyone who loves this type of book by my rating because when it comes down to the nitty gritty, it is just a personal preference on why I could not give a better rating. So therefore, if this is the type of book you would normally enjoy, then I would recommend this book for you.

Advanced Review Copy

Galley copy of Countermind provided by DSP Publications in exchange of an honest review.


Hello, I am an avid reader of male/male books. I do not have a favorite genre when it comes to male/male books because I love all of them from romance, dark reads, paranormal, shifter, threesome, whatever I see that catches my eye at the time.

I read books about rock stars, CEOs, military, cops, and just the original plain old good boy types of books.

Basically when it comes to a book, I read whatever I am in the mood for at the time. So my tastes varies from day to day and sometimes even hour to hour.

Please comment! We'd love to hear from you.
