Mind Storm

Book 1, Strykers Syndicate Series - A Strykers Syndicate Novel

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


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.


From Publishers Weekly

Mar 14, 2011 – Ruiz's apocalyptic debut, set 250 years after nuclear war almost devastated Earth, pits "registered" humans, officially five generations free of radiation-caused genetic taint, against their soldier-slave psions, mutants with varying degrees of psi powers like telepathy and telekinesis. The short-lived Strykers like heroine Threnody Corwin, psions enslaved by the venal human World Court, battle the supposedly human Serca Syndicate's psionic Warhounds in excruciating scenes of physical and mental agony, while the ruling humans plot to escape to Mars and renegade secret psion Lucas Serca dreams of saving the psions and unregistered human scavengers and making a better world. Long on horrific action and short on psychological depth, Ruiz's tale will appeal to military SF fans, with a sequel promising to tie up the many loose ends.
