Review: Minder by Kate Kaynak

  Minder (A Ganzfield Novel)Minder by Kate Kaynak

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Ganzfield is an exclusive private school for the gifted.  Gifted as in every student can either move objects with their mind, start fires just by thinking it, or are skilled in mind control.  Maddie Dunn was recruited to Ganzfield after stopping three guys from attacking her with only wishing it.  Students aren’t exactly welcoming Maddie because her abilities are so unique that they have only been seen in a handful of people.

Trevor student and outsider at Ganzfield instantly falls for Maddie.  Trevor keeps Maddie’s nightmares away in a very unique way.  He is sweet, caring, and wants nothing more than to protect her.  Maddie’s skills tend to become stronger when Trevor is near and he makes her life better.  With their combined skills there are no miscommunications and the relationship quickly intensifies.  Author Kate Kaynak does a great job making you wish you had the type of relationship that Maddie and Trevor share. 

Students at Ganzfield have dark secrets that Maddie stumbles upon and she starts making changes to make life better for all students.  Only she has to balance her powers because losing control can kill.  Apart from the students the outside world thinks Ganzfield is unnatural and want to study or kill them.  While taking a routine trip to town for supplies one of the students is captured and Maddie assembles a rescue mission where they are forced to use their powers to stay alive.

I must also warn you to be prepared for lots of swooning because this story is so sweet and romantic.  Alice Cullen and Sookie Stackhouse fans will love Maddie!  Kaynak brings plenty of action, unique story telling, and lots of romance.  Minder is the first in a Ganzfield series, Adversary comes out August 20th 2010 and Legacy will be published in 2011.  I can tell you this is a must read and will be a book I re-read over and over.
