Forbidden Mind by Kimberly Kinrade – A YA Paranormal Thriller

Kimberly Kinrade has released her first novel.  The editor for that particular project?  Yours truly.  So naturally, I hope you’ll want to give it a read.

It’s a YA Paranormal Thriller called Forbidden Mind, her first in the Forbiddenseries.

Sam thinks she’s months away from freedom. After spending her life in a secret school, rented out to the rich and powerful as a paranormal spy, she is ready to head to college like any normal eighteen-year-old.

Only Sam isn’t normal. She reads minds.  And just before her big going-away party, she links to the mind of a young man who changes everything.

Drake wasn’t raised as a ‘Rent-A-Kid.’ He was kidnapped and taken there by force. But his exceptional physical strength and powers of mind control make him very dangerous, especially to Sam.

When they meet, Sam is forced to face the truth of her situation, and to acknowledge that not all is as it seems in her picture-perfect world. For what awaits her on her eighteenth birthday isn’t a trip to college, but an unexpected nightmare from which she may not be able to escape.

To survive, they must work together.

But will their powers be enough to save them before it’s too late?


Reviews are already pouring in for Forbidden Mind, and they’re quite positive.  If you’re a fan of YA Paranormal, you won’t want to miss this.  Please stop by one of the following locations to pick up your copy: BookieJar, SmashwordsAmazon, or Goodreads.
