Summary

In the corrupt city of Mei Jhabo, a mysterious new thoughtenhancer has devastating effects on the consumer's brain. Its emergence is linked to the sudden rise of one of the city's most ruthless drug gangs. Leading the fight against it, Commissioner Celia Wallace employs the services of the famous Ayers-Ross Thoughtprotection Agency. Their mission: retrieve an undercover agent sent to infiltrate the gang and protect the information inside his mind. 
 
For ambitious young telepath Alex Lea, this seems like the perfect opportunity to prove that he is a worthy successor to his idol, legendary Mindguard Sheldon Ayers. But, in this profession, the course of things can change in an instant. 
 
After an ambush leaves him separated from his team, Alex must learn to become his own guardian first. Pushed to the limits of his ability, he comes across an enemy far more dangerous than anyone suspects and a plot that threatens the very future of the Federation. 
 
AYERS is a prequel set a few months before the events of MINDGUARD. It can be read as a stand-alone or at any point in the series. For reasons pertaining to themes and character study the author recommends reading the books in order of publication.

    Life-changing love almost feels like an invasion.
    
     
    I won’t bore you with details about the mysterious medical issues I’ve had over the last year;
     
    the sudden severe allergies to food and medication, the sleep paralysis. All I’ll tell you is that they turned my life upside down.
     
    But I’m a rational person.
     
    Naturally, I assumed that my mind was playing tricks on me when I saw the strange figures standing over me.
     
    But it felt so freakishly real;
     
    especially one face in particular that always stayed with me long after I woke up.
     
    Something about him always drew me in and I knew he was different. He made me feel different.
     
    All my life, romance has felt like something that was reserved for everyone but me. I’d accepted that the only love in my life would be experienced through my artwork.
     
    Now I’m questioning everything I know about myself, about reality, and especially about love.
