Adversary by Kate Kaynak

Title: Adversary

Author: Kate Kaynak

Published: Spencer Hill Press, 2010

Pages: 238

Series: Book 2, Ganzfield

First Line: "Were we too late?"

Summary: Things are more dangerous than they seem at Ganzfield, and not everyone will survive. Does Maddie have what it takes? (Taken from Goodreads)

Review: After having absolutely loved the first book, Minder, I couldn’t wait to delve into Adversary.  I expected it to be just as amazing as Minder and I was not disappointed.

Adversary starts off with action and just keeps going and going until the very end.  I don’t normally like books like that but with Adversary there was just something about it that had me hooked.  I just kept reading because I had to know what was going to happen next.

Adversary had parts that made me laugh but it also had its serious parts.  Some of it was really serious and quite sad.  I feel so bad for so many of the characters because of what they’d been through by the end of it all.

The new character Zack seemed very interesting and I’m hoping he’ll be in the next book.  There were times when I didn’t trust him but others when I thought he was a genuinely nice guy.  All of the other characters were pretty cool too.  Although, there were a couple of times when I thought Maddie was a bit annoying but she pulled through in the end to still remain a very cool character.

There were so many surprises in Adversary that I just didn’t see coming and I loved it.  Kate Kaynak writes a book that leaves you guessing and wanting more and what’s more it features psychics who have really cool powers.  I admit that I always wished to be a mind reader (but only if there was some way to shut it off when I wanted to) and so Adversary is just one really awesome book because it gives me insight into what being a mind reader would be like.

Adversary is an amazing book and if you haven’t read it or the first book Minder yet, then you should definitely do so soon.  I love this series and am eagerly awaiting the next book, Legacy.
