Book three in the Perceivers series begins with Michael working for the police as a perceiver under the watchful eye of Patterson. Michael’s skills in the department make for good progress but pretty soon he has to go above and beyond the call of duty to crack the case. Meanwhile, back at base Pauline and Michael try to ignore Alex’s new girlfriend, but the girl quickly becomes a key player in the case.
Mind Evolution is much darker than the previous two books in the series. Michael is now eighteen, more confident in his abilities and driven by the desire to do the right thing. With Agent Cooper still breathing down his neck, expecting results Michael is pushed into more and more dangerous situations. The book is fast-paced and full of suspense, and the author manages to hit the right balance between delicate teenage characters and adult themes.
The writing itself is clear and straight forward and this is not standard in the science fiction genre. It is easy to read without concepts or language that trip you up. I must admit, that the books in this series are un-put-down-able.
