I can stop time, but I can’t change anything.
I can access memories, but not far enough.

Oh, it's a pretty good story, but there were several things that bothered me. First, Mira is portrayed as a LOT sluttier than she appears in the other Mind Dimensions books and while this story and the other books weren't necessarily contradictory, it didn't feel like it fit right to me. Second, everybody she mind reads is thinking about sex and while that's a nice standby cliche, men engaged in other activities (playing poker in this case) are usually thinking about the task at hand. Third, a mobster accuses her of being a cop and then threatens her; mobsters rarely threaten cops because that leads to all out war which is rarely good for mobsters.
Other than that I enjoyed it.
The Time stoppers is, basically an introduction to Mira, one of the main characters in the Mind Dimension Series. This is so short, it's over practically before it starts. I don't see how it can even be called a novella - it's only about 30 pages or so. If I had read only this piece first, in the Mind Dimension Series, I'd probably not continue on in the Series. However, I read The Thought Readers, Book 1 of the Series, so I am curious. I really don't get where these reviewers are getting their information from - the ones who call it a "thrill ride" into mind reading, and such. "Fast paced," "action packed"... come on there isn't even enough of it to deserve moderate praise, much less 5 star "great from start to finish" review. I wasn't too impressed with Book 1, The Thought Readers, but I won't present a review for it here. Do I recommend this book? Not really, thou9gh it does give the reader a view of the dreadful death of Mira's...
This novella encompasses a span of 24 hours centered around Mira’s 18th birthday. Her brother, Eugene, tries his best to make her breakfast and celebrate. Their typical awkwardness results in Mira packing a bag and taking off to blow off steam. Eventually she decides on going to a club where everything comes to a head.
She is a thought reader. She can see into people’s minds and experience their thoughts and feelings. In the mind dimension she can undress people, look in their wallets, and learn more about them. This gift has shown to be both beneficial and detrimental. Just ask her about her last few minutes with her father.
Mira finds herself in a sticky situation with the club owner, named Victor, and an acquaintance of his, Shkillet, whom she had met at a card game the previous night. A night that hadn’t gone as he’d planned…
