Memory Maze is the second novel in “The Hypnotists” series by Gordon Korman. Thirteen-year-old Jackson “Jax” Opus is the descendent of two of the most powerful hypnotist families in history, the Sparkses and Opuses. As a result, he has the potential to be the most talented and powerful hypnotist ever. In the first book, The Hypnotists, the corrupt Dr. Elias Mako manipulated Jax to use his powers to tamper with an election. In Memory Maze, readers pick up with the Opuses in Connecticut. Under the advice of Axel Braintree, leader of the reformed hypnotist group known as the Sandmen Guild, Jax and his parents change their identities and move to a quiet town in Connecticut to protect Jax from Dr. Mako. Jax quickly finds that hiding his talents is more difficult than he imagined, and his true identity is discovered by the ailing billionaire Avery Quackenbush. Quackenbush convinces Jax to perform experimental hypnotism in an effort to prolong his life until new medicine is developed. Meanwhile in New York City, Dr. Mako is wreaking havoc on the Sandmen Guild determined to find Jax and abuse his talents.
