Well I can say in all honesty that Minder deserves every single one of them, it definitely lived up to all the praise, hype and excitement!

"I loved the voice of this story, and I fell in love with the characters. If you’re looking for something fresh in the YA Paranormal Romance department, do yourself a favor and check out Minder." – YA Bound

"Kaynak’s writing style was straightforward and driving, but told a convincing teen narrative –from the moments when Maddie can read the dirty thoughts of the kids around her, to her own fears and trepidations herself, to her temptations to use her power in some very grey area-ways. The story moved, and the suspense was really well done... (World Building) is where Kaynak really excelled. The world her characters lived in felt really established and concrete. She developed and described it succinctly — pulled you in and let you live there."
– Forever Young Adult

"A fun and fresh read." – Book Reader Addicts


"Minder is the fantastic introduction to the world of Ganzfield, and the perfect start to this series. The book was a quick read, packed full of emotion and turmoil.

Even the supporting characters are memorable. Make sure you read this series." – Looksie Lovitz: Books and Wits

Maddie has more problems than the average seventeen-year-old:

A psychotic killer with superpowers wants her dead.

A serious medical issue makes a "normal life" impossible.

And she's about to be introduced to Trevor's family.

Guess which one freaks her out the most?

"5/5: Legacy keeps the break-neck pacing that Adversary had, and I am constantly surprised by what happens. Her writing is superb, eliciting the whole range of emotions. These are the characters that I love, I am invested in them. When they laugh, so do I. I hate who they hate, am in suspense with them. The world at Ganzfield is well thought out, believable, and complex... This is an amazing series of books that I highly recommend, and Legacy did not disappoint in the slightest. – Blkosiner's Book Blog

"5/5: The Ganzfield series is pure perfection. There is nothing that could make this series better. In short, Kate Kaynak is awesome. If you haven't picked up this series, you must be insane! It's the kind of story that latches onto your brain and won't let go. It leaves you wondering and wanting more. Definitely pick up this book when it comes out January 28th, 2011. This series just gets better and better. Read it, read it, read it!"  – Looksie Lovitz: Books and Wits

"The Trevor/Maddie love story is probably one of the reasons I am so infatuated with this series. I just find it so believable and beautiful... I am now and forever will be a Kate Kaynak fan. I love her writing style and I love her story ideas. The Ganzfield Series is one that I am enjoying so much, and I can't wait to read # 4 - Accused." – Good Choice Reading

"5/5: Legacy was just amazing; I have absolutely nothing negative to say about it... There are twists and turns, as well as the romance, danger and adventure that the others have. If you are wanting a series that will capture your full imagination, spend hours reading without stopping and will keep to thinking even after you have finished the books, then these are the books for you." Totally Bookalicious (formerly Love Fantasy Sci-Fi Novels)

"Legacy was just absolutely fantastic.  Kate Kaynak has such a way with words that keeps you hooked on the story... I guarantee that you will absolutely love the Ganfield series." – Everything to Do With Books  

"5 Stars: Legacy is a perfect combination of supernatural teen romance, friendship, and exhilarating thrills. Kate Kaynak unleashes yet again her superpower 'charm' ability to grab hold of your mind and take you on a hair-raising, mind-scrambling, emotional ride. She'll have you holding your breath in fear one minute, then exhaling it with and out-loud laugh at one of her characters' zingers!" – Reading, Writing, Raisin' Boys

"I love this series and I am very interested in seeing where Kate will take Maddie and her friends." – Larissa's Bookish Life

"5 out of 5: The world that Kate Kaynak has created is incredible. I can honestly say that Maddie & Trevor have wrapped themselves around my heart & head. I feel they will forever live there too. They feel so real to me... So my favorite author has kept it up...  I promise you that if you enjoy sci fi, you'll enjoy the Ganzfield series... Once I started reading it, I could not put it down... This book was fantastic!... Kate's ability to blend humor, danger and grief all into one amazing book is truly admirable. I've never been able to put her books down once I've started it. I can't tell you how much I enjoy this series. If you haven't yet picked it up, I would highly recommend it.I love, love, love this series!" – Books Complete Me

"4.5 out of 5: Legacy definitely lived up to the standards that I have now set for the Ganzfield series. It was just as wonderful and emotionally draining (not in a bad way) as Minder and Adversary. As soon as I sat down with this one, it had me and didn't let go until the end." Missy's Reads and Reviews

"6 out of 6: .This is just one more completely, entirely, absolutely, totally, wholly, amazing book by Kate Kaynak... "Normal" has gone out the window. Now they just need to survive." Reading Teen

"I received this ARC from the author and LOVED it!  I have read the first two books in the series and was thrilled by the opportunity to read this next installment!  It was fantastic!" The Wormhole

"5 out of 5: 'Wicked Awesome.' Legacy is on wild ride with new characters, unexpected twists, and that evil guy Isaiah still wreaking havoc. If you’re looking for some great character growth (along with some snarky Maddie) then Legacy aims to please. Be prepared though, it can be upsetting. A little death, a little anger, and a lot of me wanting to slap a few different girls for various reasons = great job, Kate!" Wicked Awesome Books

"5 Stars: Kate Kaynak has done it again. She's on top of her game and it looks like she intends on staying there. I thought the characters, both protagonist and supporting were richly developed, had substantial growth, and had an essence of truth about them that made them feel realistic... I definitely recommend this book not only to young adults, but to adults as well.  In my opinion, The Ganzfield Novels are in a league all their own. Like its predecessors, Minder and Adversary, Legacy pulls on the heart strings, invades the imagination and invites the reader to live vicariously within its pages."  –Escape Between the Pages

"Packed to the gills with twist, turns, action, and suspense. There is so much awesomeness but I cant tell you much more because I will give away spoilers. I can not wait to see what ACCUSED brings to the table." Urban Fantasy Investigations

"I loved this latest book in the Ganzfield series!  It was a great read on a really emotional level... Overall, this is a great book for teens and adults alike and I think everyone should give the Ganzfield Series a chance." Amethyst Daydreams

"I absolutely adore the Ganzfield series. They are extremely hard to put down once you pick them up. The connection Kate has to her readers is an amazing talent. I feel extremely connected to her characters and feel what they feel while it's going on. I love the characters, I love the storyline and the books just keep getting better and better. I am highly anticipating seeing where Kate is going to take the characters of Ganzfield and I cannot wait to join them. I Give this 5/5 Hearts!" My Bookish Fairy Tale

"I don’t think this author, nor her books, get the recognition they deserve. This is a must-read for fans of YA paranormal. The world building and attention to details will appeal to fans of Harry Potter. There’s action, suspense, a bit of romance and there’s also a smidge of a science fiction element going on. The author keeps the storyline going by adding fresh characters and new obstacles which leaves me eager for the next book. If you haven’t read Minder or Adversary, I highly recommend you do and ASAP. You don’t want to miss out on this incredible YA Paranormal series." The Book Vixen

"Did I say that the series gets better & better? By the time of Soulmate the Ganzfield series is going to be a masterpiece! The last part of the book... was amazing, so breathtaking I couldn't keep my eyes off of the book!" Mind Reader

"In every book of Ganzfield series there's the element of surprise but in this installment I found it particularly intriguing... I think your wondering and wondering about the characters involved in the action is what really keeps your heart throbbing, what helps you staying focused on the events and what renders so special this reading. And of course Maddie and her condition... I'd say Legacy is my fave book of the series, but I have to wait to affirm that because you can never say never with Kate and what she keeps by... And trust me when I say that in the world there are not enough charms to stop you from reading this series!" – Darkest Sins

"The characters in the Ganzfield series are what makes these books so unforgettable. As much as I love Maddie and Trevor, I enjoy the other characters’ stories and their dilemmas equally. They aren’t simply supporting characters, while the main characters have the starring role, each play a vital role and has an amazingly unique story. A favorite from the second book, Zack, is back, and I’m so excited about where his journey is leading. He’s just awesome. Team Zack! The gang faces off with Isaiah, the main villain, but a new bad guy is introduced. Whoa, I have to say, as creepy as Isaiah is, this new villain, yeah, Kaynak knows how to write an evil all girls can relate to. This is one character Maddie will hunt down personally. Although we’re left wanting more, and need more, I think this third installment wraps up, giving us closure on the happenings throughout, while starting a new story to continue the series. And I can’t wait." – YA Bound



The Fourth Ganzfield Novel

Someone in the government knows about Ganzfield...and he has special reasons to target Maddie. 

"WOW, yet another fantastic and action packed read by Kate Kaynak... I love the characters in the series. They are all strong and quite mature and all bring something completely different to the story. Maddie and Trevor relationship in this novel is maturing and its hard not to like them. They have got to the the cutest couple in YA books. Kate has yet again delivered a solid and exciting story that keeps you hooked from start to finish... It really will be the kind of book that you will not be able to put down... If you haven't read this series then please. Read it. You will not be disappointed! 5/5." Totally Bookalicious

"Like the rest of the Ganzfield books, Accused is a fun, light-hearted read. I really like that we get to see the major drawbacks to having “superpowers.” I’m sure most people have wished that they had an extra sense at some point; I know I have. But the Ganzfield teens really struggle with their abilities. It doesn’t make their lives easier at all. It is proof of Kaynak’s talent as an author that the characters in her books seem like normal people, despite their special abilities." The Book Addict

"The Ganzfield series is an awesome fast-paced Paranormal Y.A. series full of romance, great characters and awesome world building. If you enjoy P.Y.A. this is definitely a series you should check out and if you are already a fan, you CANNOT miss Accused!"Larissa's Bookish Life

"Accused is incredibly intense, mind-boggling, romance filled and action-packed. 5/5 firecrackin' stars!" – Reading, Writing, Raisin' Boys

"Accused was thrilling and I never wanted to put it down. If you haven't read this series yet, you are seriously missing out, and I'm telling you--this is the good stuff, and you are missing one of the best series ever." – Blkosiner's Book Blog

"Ok, now I can really say I have a favourite book. And that book is Accused. In all the reviews I made I said that every book was better than the previous one, and once again my statement is true. This book was passionate, exciting, emotional and scary. 5/5." – Mind Reader

"5/5. Action, suspense, love, sadness, rage... Put these and more all together and you will have an idea of what it is reading this book... I'm pretty sure that when the series will stop I'm gonna cry as a baby, 'cause I'm gonna miss Ganzfield and all the amazing people who live there... But I still have time to cry and I know that in the meantime Kate Kaynak is gonna blast my mind with her awesome story!"Darkest Sins

"From the absolute beginning of the book I was hooked... I know I will continue to read the series to the very end because I absolutely must know what happens next. I just have to know... I absolutely loved Accused and I am so annoyed that I have to wait for ages to read the next book. The Ganzfield series is just a truly amazing series and I am constantly blown away by the depth and creativity that Kate Kaynak adds in each book. Definitely worth a read!" Everything To Do With Books

"If you have not picked up these books yet you are totally missing out on the awesomeness of the Ganzfield gang. Accused is emotional, action packed, fast paced and all around awesome addition to the Ganzfield novels... Seriously, these books are a must read. I have picked up and devoured every book in the series so far and I'm impatiently waiting for the next. I really wasn't expecting to love the books so much when I first started reading them but now I can't imagine ever not reading a new one the moment I am able to get my hands on one. The characters grow so much in each book and even though the books are fast paced and are a quick read SO much happens. Accused I believe is the most emotional book yet of the series. I cried like a baby for most of the book and I'm really looking forward to seeing where Kate is bringing the series." Urban Fantasy Investigations

"Kate Kaynak just doesn't quit! One GREAT book after another! As always I loved Accused. I am sooo hooked on this series! I love Maddie and Trevor! This one just had enough drama and action without over doing it. Excellent work Kate! PLEASE keep them coming! You are one of my all time favorite authors!!! My Score: 5 Stars-Loved the Book!" Read For Your Future

"An addicting, fast-paced, sexy, and hilarious YA series that I can’t get enough of... Accused is another wonderful installment in a perfectly executed series. Kate Kaynak has delivered yet another fresh tale with endearing and entertaining characters, a storyline that continues to thicken, and a romance that has found a way to sizzle without fail. Accused has whet my appetite for even more G-positive adventures and I’m wicked excited to see exactly where Maddie will go next and what will happen in her future." Wicked Awesome Books

"From the very first chapter, this book is non-stop action and suspense... Accused is probably my favorite book in the series so far. It's definitely a little more adult than the others, but it works so well. Every character is loveable (or hateable, lol) and I found myself breezing through this book in no time - and being sad that it had to end. 5 out of 5 stars." Good Choice Reading

"My love for Accused can't really even be expressed. I have been shouting to the world how amazing I think this series is, and if you haven't listened yet, there's no time like the present.  Just read them. Accused an exciting and emotional supernatural love story that has you tearing through page after page. I absolutely can't wait for Operative to come out because I'm dying to know what happens next. The whole entire series is crazily addicting and the characters are brilliant.  If you don't read them, you really are missing out on something great.  Just be prepared for the ride of your life." Reading Teen

"Mindy's Review: Author Kate Kaynak has done it again. The fourth installment of the Ganzfield series does not disappoint. This page turning, breath holding on the edge of your seat book keeps you turning pages well into the night.
Julie's Review:  Kate Kaynak is a genius. I'm really not sure what I can say beyond that, she just is.  When it comes to YA works (or any written work, for that matter) the author either has the ability to capture the attention of the reader, or they don't. Kaynak has it IN SPADES.  I could not put down this book.
Nicole's Review: Kate Kaynak has created another fabulous book in her Ganzfield series... If you haven't started this series yet, you need to. It's never a dull moment, and you're always on your toes.
Cindy's Review: There is not much I can say about this book or series that my co-bloggers haven't already said. This series is a non-stop emotional roller coaster and I know every time I pick up one of these books I'm going to be out of commission until I finish it. Accused is no different. The G-positives are such a fun concept and it's so much fun to get inside this little world of students who will do anything for one another. It's not always fun and games, as there seems to be danger at every corner, but that's just part of what makes this series so exciting. Accused is a thrill ride that has let me wanting more than ever before. Dare I say this is my favorite book in the series? I think so and I can't wait for Operative." Books Complete Me

"With each new book, there’s even more action, tension, and passion. She always finds a way to bring something new to the series and keep me guessing...  If you have not started this series yet, I don’t know what you’re waiting for. All the characters of Ganzfield have become like a family to me, and I look forward to seeing where Kaynak takes this series next!" – YA Bound

"Kate Kaynak floored me with the pace she kept all through the novel: Accused starts pretty much with a  bang and from then on she never lets up the pressure, the tension is always there, drumming in the background... Kate Kaynak made me sweat, swear, tear up and feel for her characters... Accused was perfection regarding its composition: it had action, the mystery plot was exciting, enough time and space was spent on the characters and their emotional struggles and growth, it had humour, it had romance and once again Kate Kaynak left me wanting more!

The Fifth Ganzfield Novel

Maddie and the rest of the team must catch the person selling classified information to terrorists--before they become the targets.

"If you haven't started this series- do it now.  Really, it's that good... Operative by Kate Kaynak earns 5 Fairies for being made of awesome. I'd marry this book if I could." Amethyst Daydreams

"Operative is as full of amazing as I've come to expect from Kate Kaynak... Kate writes some of the best secondary characters I've ever read as well. They all have so much life, and I'm always eager to find out more about them. It is hard though because she writes the story her way, and it's not always the easiest to read because it can break your heart... If you haven't read this series, you are seriously missing out! It's consistently been on my list of favorites that I recommend to anyone. Great characters, writing that's superb and evokes so much emotion while still managing to leave me on the edge of my seat."  Blkosiner's Book Blog

"Kate will guide you step by step on a paranormal adventure with the precision of a marionette master in this fifth book of the Ganzfield series.  She brings an entirely unique element to Young Adult Paranormal - so new that no other YA authors can touch it. This novel is riveting! Magnetic! Sir, Yes Sir!"  Reading, Writing, Raisin' Boys

"Operative is the perfect combination of paranormal, action, and suspense with a little romance thrown in. There's something for everyone. It's one of those rare books where I couldn't decide what I enjoyed more, the characters or the plot. They're both amazing." YA Bound

"5/5 Stars -- OPERATIVE continues the series as all the others have with fantastic twists, heart pounding turns, fantastic humor, heart wrenching loss and passionate reunions. I'm going to once again repeat myself GO BUY THIS SERIES you will be far from disappointed and if you are then you have horrible taste in reading material. This series is in my top 5 must have must read series and will continue to be there as long as Kate keeps the great characters and plots coming." Urban Fantasy Investigations

"The great thing about Kate Kaynak is that she made me part of a big, awesome family, which I've come to love and care for. And as great families do, I appreciate the good things and mourn the losses with a deep sadness. " Mind Reader

"Not only is Operative exhilarating and action-packed, it also continues one of my favorite love stories of all time. Kate entwines battles and romance so seamlessly that I fall in love a little more with each new installment. I will be anxiously awaiting the next Ganzfield Novel Soulmate, and in the mean time, you should definitely read every single one of these amazing books." Reading Teen
