“Christina Bauer has a gift with sucking you into a story and not letting go until the final sentence is over. This was one of those stories.” – The Book Herald
Our heroine Meimi Archer has been assigned to attend ECHO Academy. There, the evil Headmaster believes that Meimi will help the government conquer other dimensions.
But Meimi and her friends have some very different ideas. They’re starting a revolution.
That is, if the Headmaster doesn’t find out and murder them first.
“If you like books set in a dystopian futuristic society then you are going to LOVE Alien Minds.” – The Avid Reader
Sample Chapter – ECHO Academy
Here it comes—another fight with my father Cole. Maybe this one will stop with verbal sparring.
I narrow my eyes. “Out with it. You’ve got a plan. Just tell me what you want.”
“If you insist.” Cole slaps on a forced smile. “I’m a generous man. You can keep the Crown Sentient you just stole. All I ask is that you don’t cause trouble. Forget about that girl.”
Frustration heats my veins. “She has a name. Meimi. And she’s my transcendent, not some girl.”
“On that we agree, son. Miss Meimi is indeed a transcendent. But we differ on a single point.” Father’s next two words that blow apart my world.
Shock zings through my nervous system. “No.”
Father’s false smile stays firmly in place. “Took in my Crown Sentient, didn’t she? What do you think that makes her?”
Rage heats my veins. “Not. Yours.”
“Being emperor ain’t an easy job, son. Crown Sentient mess with your head.” Father’s eyes take on a strange gleam as he says the mess with your head part. “A transcendent will share my load. This is a gift from the omniverse—the very universe of parallel universes—and it’s not meant for a weak boy without the sense of a newborn piglet.”
A realization washes over my soul. “You didn’t exile Meimi. You’ve put her in safe keeping until you can get to her properly.”
Implications link through my brain, like so many dominos falling. Meimi would never agree be Cole’s empress. My heart sinks. Then again, Meimi never would have agreed to help Godwin, either. But then, Godwin wiped her memories.
“Why shouldn’t I keep her safe?” asks Cole. “She’s mine, ain’t she? Now, do you agree with me on that, or must I get nasty?”
With those words, my life derails. As long as I can remember, I’ve worked to save the good man that is my father. Now a line has been crossed. Cole wants to make Meimi his empress. If the choice is between my family of origin and my future with Meimi, there really is no decision to make.
No one hurts Meimi, ever.

Christina Bauer thinks that fantasy books are like bacon: they just make life better. All of which is why she writes romance novels that feature demons, dragons, wizards, witches, elves, elementals, and a bunch of random stuff that she brainstorms while riding the Boston T. Oh, and she includes lots of humor and kick-ass chicks, too.
Christina graduated from Syracuse University’s Newhouse School with BA’s in English along with Television, Radio, and Film Production. She lives in Newton, MA with her husband, son, and semi-insane golden retriever, Ruby.
