      Original read: March 13th, 2015Re-read: February 7th, 2016---3.5 stars (review edited with some quotes)***The fucker who put the explosive under my family's car might be in this very room right now. I take a deep breath, finding comfort in anger and the violent fantasies of what I plan to do to him. "It's time," I say out loud--though, of course, the frozen people can't hear it. "Let's see if any of you fuckers are thinking of explosions." "A wish. All of a sudden, I feel an ache in my chest. No [...]

      Short, but good for a little back story of Mira. She's a bit arrogant if you ask me but hopefully her character will redeem herself. Next to Book two!

      Aus Miras Sicht, die erst später noch Darren kennenlernt.Diese Kurzgeschichte geht schon sehr ins erotische über. Mira ‘liest’ die Gedanken von Männern, die ganz schön deutliche Vorstellungen und Phantasien haben.

      I love all of the books in the Mind Dimensions Series by Dima Zales.This book, The Time Stopper is a great prequel to the series and you get an intimate look at Mira. Mira is a Russian girl who moved to New York City with her brother Eugene after a Russian mobster killed her parents in a car bomb. Mira has a special gift. She can stop time and move throughout while others are frozen. While she can't change anything, she is able to see into the mind of other's and experience their thoughts and fe [...]

      I received the book from the author for an honest review.And I will say it was pretty cool actually, the plot was super interesting and it hook me with the series, I will have to read all on the long run.The idea of split its cool and it was well done , with the teaser at the end I want to read book one.Kudos to the author on this one, I like Mira she is pretty strong and interesting female lead.I also want to know more about Eugene.

    • Carole Hayes says:

      I was greatly intrigued by the premise, enough so that I was able to get easily past a few clunky'ish spots (normally ANY clunkiness makes me put a book down and move on to something else). When I finished it, I immediately went and found the next book in the series, and I'm hopelessly hooked now.

    • Francheska says:

      this was a quick little beginning peek into a world. one made to make you drool over the potential of more as you bounce impatiently in your seat for the next installment. the author was very successful. Now I have to buy them all to read.Mira is awesome. Bad-ass, hard-ass and a million other kinds of cool. Though reliving her memories of what made her that way made me want to hug her and make the bad things disappear. Victor is an enigma i truly hope to see more of.

    • Sylvia says:

      I love this series. It is perfect sci-fi for an adult, and I am so happy for this. I have been looking, but it was not forthcoming. Well, this young lady is bad ass if I do say so myself. A bit reckless as well, but that helps to make her intriguing.

    • Deborah says:

      Good story odd ending This is a short story that can apparently be read apart from the main series & most of it works like that but the ending is either a cliffhanger or only makes sense if you know more about the character from other books

    • Tom says:

      Mira's background story.

    • L.T. Kodzo says:

      When I first started this book, I stopped half way because the craft got sloppy. I later picked it back up and read all the way through. Not finding the same issues.

    • Donne Knudsen says:

      Okay, that was just enough to get me interested. I love series with kick ass female heroines. Yeah, I'm getting the next book in the series.

    • Mario Reineke says:

      The book sucks.

    • Sherryl Mae says:

      “It’s so smoky in here; it’s like someone set off a bomb,” this is one of the lines I like the most throughout the story. It awakened my imagination and started going into the extraordinary scenes. It made me experience the so called “Mind Dimension”! Miri’s gift of mind dimension made the whole story interesting. Through this gift, she was able to examine herself from all angles and can even magnify her life’s insecurities which made her able to stop time. However, the moment [...]

      Mira is a young, beautiful woman, who watched her parents die by a bomb planted on their car.Now she is angry. Very angry. And she has a secret that will help her have her revenge.------This novella is a prequel to a publicly acclaimed Mind Dimensions series. As I haven't read any of the previous novels I was a bit afraid that I won't be able to understand what this series is all about. I didn't need to worry, though - this novella can be read on its own, explaining basic concepts of a mind dime [...]

      Author kindly provided an Audio-book in exchange for an honest review.The Time Stopper by Dima Zales was an interesting "fantasy" book about a girl named Mira, that can stop time and read minds. At a young age, Mira witnessed her parents die in a vehicle explosion and since then, shes been on the hunt for the person who murdered her parents.With a limited amount of time to "split", The Time Stopper is very fast paced, but Mira's reactions are will thought out. I've got to say jeez, all these Rus [...]

    • Ken says:

      The Time Stopper is a fast-paced, action packed thrill ride into the world of the Mind Dimensions series. It has interesting and likable characters, a fairly original basic premise that is developed throughout the story, and lots of plot and dramatic tension. The characters are very plausible; they act like you would expect them to act under the circumstances. Our hero is beautiful Mira, an 18-year old Russian girl who has moved to New York with her older brother Eugene. Her overriding goal in l [...]

      See full review at Shellyback books.Wow, this is a really enjoyable and original story. The Time Stopper is a complete short story in its own right but also an excellent teaser for the Mind Dimensions series.This is essentially Mira's story. Mira like her father and brother has a gift, she can literally stop time and shift. This a fascinating concept where shifting involves stepping out of herself into the quiet where she can explore her both surroundings and those around here before stepping ba [...]

      Since I have the first two books of The Mind Dimension series already in my library (awesome reads!), I just had to add The Time Stopper. I really liked the character of Mira in the series but wanted to know more about her background, which is exactly what you get in The Time Stopper.As I expected, the book is fast paced and full of twists and turns. Mira is young and reckless, frustrated and conflicted at times, and very determined. I loved being able to see her story through her own eyes. With [...]

    • Amy Vincent says:

      Another good addition to the intense Mind Dimensions series, it is action packed and a great prequel to introduce people to the thrilling and suspenseful series of books. This story focuses on a young Russian woman named Mira, who has the ability to step outside the boundaries of time. She is a Thought Reader, who is able to freeze time and interact with the inanimate objects and people around her. This ability, also possessed by her brother and father raise the attention of the Russian mob and [...]

      ** Read as part of the Gathering Darkness: A Paranormal Romance Collection **~ DNF ~The Time Stopper is #0.5 in the Mind Dimensions series and can be picked up for free at an eBook realtor. I ended up DNFing after chapter one. I could not get into the story or writing style. The ability that Mira has is odd and it’s weird how it’s used and described. Mira the heroine was not interesting enough. Just did not work for me.If you enjoy ScFi Time Travel Paranormal Romance then you might enjoy try [...]

    • Breanna says:

      The story is very intense and a great prelude to the event in the next two book, seeing life through Mira’s eyes makes you want to keep listening for hours. Mira’s is more intense than I previously thought, everything from the witnessing and feeling her parent’s thoughts as they died is more excruciating as she recalls it. The chapter with her father was a very touching moment until you realize what’s about to happen next. It’s sad how Mira’s parent’s death and the experience warpe [...]

      I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.The story revolves around Mira, who sets out to find the men who killed her parents. Mira possesses powers that allow her to stop time and it comes in handy when she goes undercover in the casinos to learn more about the killers.It took me a little while to get into the story and the real action doesn't get started until the middle of the book. I loved the fight scenes and Mira comes across as a strong woman, who's not afraid and c [...]

      Nice Intro Book Into The SeriesThis book was a short, but fun read. I read the entire thing yesterday. How exciting it would be to have Mira's special ability to stop time, and also to read other people. Such a cool gift. I wouldn't know how to deal with those sort of abilities. I think I'd be scared to know what's on some people's minds, but the stopping time thing would be fun to play around with.This book kept me interested. I like books that circle mainly around a strong female character. Sh [...]

    • Kerstin says:

      3,5/5 stars"The Time Stopper" is a nice, short story about Mira who is a secondary character in the main book, "The Thought Readers". We got to know her a bit better and even though I'm still not the biggest fan of her, I definitely understand and like her better now that I've seen into her mind (she's the first-person narrator in this one). The story tells us how her parents died and how she's trying to find out who did it. There's a lot of action and we learn more about her talents. Seeing how [...]

      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 le [...]

    • Nichole Streeter says:

      I have been reading the Mind Dimensions Books for awhile. I love the idea of supernatural powers. Think of all the things you would do if you were psychic. It most certainly would cause a lot of stink however, which is what these books are ultimately about. Mira is an awesome character. One of the things that happens a lot in books like this is supernatural characters dont get the character development treatment they deserve and basically they are just shallow people who can do things you and I [...]

    • Tara Blue says:

      In this short prequel to Time Readers, we get to learn more about Mira's place in the Mind Dimensions series. Similar to Thought Readers and Thought Pushers, we get a quick paced, witty and satisfying story. Biggest feature for me was finding information through Mira's perspective. She is completely different than Darren, more so than she portrays in the other two books. She provides more depth as a character in this book. Strong willed, sure of herself, yet frustrated with her limitations. Spec [...]

    • Dee Bibb says:

      I love fantasy stories and this one is a great one. This short story is told in the first person by the heroine, Mira. She is a very interesting and well developed character with a no nonsense, street smart attitude. I had the audio book and the narrator's voice was perfect. I loved all the inflections and different accents she used to tell the story. The story does contain some gritty, adult language. However, the adult language just adds to the mystique of the story. The author does a wonderfu [...]
