The Starmind Alert is a psychic thriller that takes readers across the world as two psychics work together with a secret government organization to bring down a dangerous individual intent on bringing constant fear and terror to Americans no matter where they live, but especially in the United States. The author brings together Jim Sato and Gilda Dobrowski to pursue this dangerous man and end his reign of terror and stop his evil plans from coming to fruition. The Starmind Alert is the second book in this series, though that wasn't evident from the blurb. I was a bit taken aback when I kept getting references to these characters having come together prior to now, and how they defeated another individual intent on spreading terror and fear. I felt that there were pieces of the story that I was missing as the characters interact with others who seem to be familiar to them. The first couple of chapters, at least, were a bit of a struggle for me. There is a lot of references to the previous situations in the first book and I had nothing to really reference back to. The relationships have already been established and I felt like I was missing quite a bit. Then there is a lot of dialogue/word usage that honestly was a bit hard to follow and truly understand. There is quite a bit of technical word usage that the average reader really isn't going to understand without a dictionary handy, so it was hard for me to get into the story at this point. Once I got past the first few chapters the story really gains traction and engaged me. The pace picks up and begins the real drama of the two main characters working together to gain enough information to learn as much as possible about Ahmad to bring him down. The pieces come together and I like how Gilda is the one the author chooses to focus on with the psychic abilities and the connection to the main source/computer. This brings in a nice bit of science fiction element to the story. I like how the author has the characters adapting when necessary to their situations and surroundings when they notice that things aren't in the best for them. This builds the international spy element and further encourages the thriller element as well. There is a lot going in in this book and once you get past the first few chapters this book is really hard to put down. I am choosing to rate this book 4.5 out of 5 stars. I'm taking off half a star for the first few chapters. It was hard to get into and some of the terminology used is a bit too high/advanced for the average reader. Without having read the previous book I was a bit lost as to the connections between the characters and what happened previously. Once I got into fresher territory without any connection to the past I was able to get into the book and the book really pulled me in. If you've read the previous book by this author then you'll have little to no problem with this story, but if you haven't but still want to read then brace yourself for the first few chapters, but then it gets easier to read and follow after that.
