do you remember me RAVING about THE DARKEST MINDS and alexandra bracken in almost every single one of my posts last year? oh, those were the days. well, i still rave about her but not as much because i don’t want to bury you with my constant fangirling. (see, i’m being considerate. if i had a choice, she would make an appearance in every. single. one. of my posts.) when i heard there was going to be a collection of THE DARKEST MINDS novellas, i was about to explode with excitement. i was so devastated when the last book came out because it meant NO MORE LIAM OR CHUBS OR RUBY OR ZU OR VIDA. *sobs* (but i was also happy because i wanted to know what happened and the conclusion was FANTASTIC. my review + discussion is here~)

about the novellas
IN TIME // Gabe’s life has been devastated in the wake of the economic crash. The only option left for someone like him to escape his tragic past is to leave his small town behind and to attempt to become a skiptracer. This already almost-impossible task is made all the more difficult by his first “score,” a young girl who won’t speak, but who changes his life in ways he could never imagine.
SPARKS RISE // Sam didn’t think things could get worse at Thurmand rehabilitation camp. Then the Reds arrive. Everyone assumed the kids with firepower had been killed years ago. Instead they were taken away, brainwashed, and returned as terrifyingly effective guards. To her horror, Sam recognizes one of them: Lucas, the one spark of light in Sam’s dark childhood.
Lucas has a deadly secret–he beat the brutal training that turned his fellow Reds into mindless drones. When Sam defends herself against an attack by a vile PSF guard and faces a harrowing punishment, Lucas must risk everything to save her.
BEYOND THE NIGHT // The government-run “rehabilitation camps” have been shut down, but kids with Psi powers are anything but free. Sam would rather be on her own than put in the care of a foster family and given the “cure”–a dangerous procedure that unclaimed kids across the country are being forced to undergo. But there’s more at stake than just her own safety. Sam once made someone a promise, and the time has come to fulfill it.
Now that she’s out of her camp, Mia only has one thought in her head: finding Lucas, her beloved older brother. She hasn’t seen him since they were separated and taken to different camps years ago, before Mia even became Psi. When Sam, Lucas’s childhood best friend, rescues Mia from the government’s inept care, Mia learns that nothing is as simple as she thought–and the past that she’s so desperate to salvage may not be possible to recover…
