Looking for Mind-reading stories

jhncanson

Can anyone give me a list of stories that heavily involves mind reading(surface thoughts gradually subconscious) and/or an empath who can read people via their emotions.

no mind control(no fun in that, anti-climatic)

Second Time Through is based round an empath / mind reading ability, and although ongoing, there is enough already written to keep you busy for a few days.
Also, if you can find them - no longer on SOL - the Combat Wizard stories by GraySapien were based on empaths.

The main character in most of the Clan Amir series is an empath who can sense where people are by their emotions and when they lie. Gordy / Gerry Mannheim is the character.

That's been on my list lately but i never got to read it yet, i always get put off by the over-arching plot of good vs evil.

Edit: so many interesting possibilities to explore in mind control series but it always dont happen because of good vs evil.

It always goes to enslaving girls to bad men trying to steal his girls to him fighting the organization behind the bad man.

Second Time Through mixes science fiction, mythology and a do-over, and though a lot has to do with teenage sex, the 'good vs evil' isn't pushed that much, it is more of an underlying quest for certain items.
If you want a good vs evil empath, but without the enslaving of females, try the Wizard series by MisguidedChild. He is empathetic with animals but the stories are basically about his growing up.

I don't like the good vs evil theme too much as they rush a story too much.

do-over stories to me are what mind control could be if dont focus too much on good vs evil.

My "Catalyst" series features a limited mind-reading (can only communicate with certain people, and instead of good vs. evil, it's a 'what the fuck is going on' search for answers story). My next story on SOL, "The Cuckoo's Progeny" also features a limited mind-reading, but only after chapter 8 or so (a minor story element that plays into the eventual plot development).

I think Sleepwalker (author name, but similar to the story name) deals with similar concepts, but again, it's a superhero vs. evil villain type of story.

On second time through, i only read abit of the first few chapters.

I assume he was sent into a teenage body but i never read anything regarding him going to a school?

The school question arises in book IV, but the author had to take time out for personal health reasons and has only just restarted the story. It will probably (possibly) be clarified a bit more in the current book. So far the time frame is actually fairly short. The story starts in May and it has only reached July. Given the accident and school break, it hasn't been relevant yet.
Give it a few more chapters, the writing quality definitely improves as he gets more into the flow of it, though there is a lot of repetition.

I'm rereading it now, slowly (and mixed in with some others).

One of the early plot elements is the MCs emancipation (at the age of 16). The case was slated to be heard at the end of June, but involved him agreeing to continue school in Tennessee.

Half way through hook 2 and the case is still some two weeks into the future.

So he will go back to school, eventually
