  • Highly Original

    In his latest thriller, John Marrs has given the reader a highly original story, taking us into a futuristic world. Having previously read The Passengers and The One I was therefore wildly excited to pick up this novel, The Minders. In The Minders a group of five people have been selected to help in attempting to thwart cyber terrorism. A revolutionary medical procedure has enabled them to be ultimate secret keepers - the country's most secretive information has been taken offline and turned into genetic code implanted inside their heads. The novel follows the group of minders who have cut all links with friends, family and social media and started afresh in a different location... but someone knows who they are. This is the third in the futuristic thriller genre from the author and I was not disappointed. Although I don't claim to be a big Sci-Fi fan, I still enjoyed this novel and I think it's because of the diverse and interesting characters as I was completely invested in and gripped by each of their viewpoints. As the minders were being hunted the tension really ramped up and I couldn’t whip through the pages fast enough. The story was not as far-fetched as it first seemed and there were many fast, jaw-dropping moments and ultra-smart twists in the book. The Minders was everything I hoped it would be in that it was shocking, gripping and very unpredictable, with everything leading to a very satisfying conclusion. I can’t wait to see what John Marrs writes next and I will be waiting in the queue! I received a complimentary copy of this novel from Random House UK, Cornerstone/ Del Rey via NetGalley at my request and this review is my own unbiased opinion.

    Thanks for your feedback!
