MY FIRST THOUGHTS
I was very lucky to be sent a copy of this book by the publisher, and I am thoroughly enjoying it. I must admit I have never read Jonathan Maberry before and as I understand this, Gimpse is a very different book to his others. So I am probably one of the few coming into this book with no idea of Maberry’s previous style and without expectations. In short, I LOVE it! Glimpse has a got a strong supernatural theme, with horror elements, very much like Stephen King and Dean Koontz’ work. There’s also a huge amount of mystery surrounding the strange Doctor Nine and what is behind his motivation as the book’s evil baddie. It’s one of those books I can’t wait to pick up and continue reading…
HERE’S THE BLURB FROM GOODREADS
Rain is a young woman trying to rebuild herself after years of drug addiction and abuse. Ten years ago, at age sixteen, she gave up her baby after the father, her first love, dies in Iraq. Now, three years clean and on the way to a job interview, Rain borrows a pair of reading glasses from an old lady on a Brooklyn train. The lenses are cracked and through the crack she catches a glimpse of a little boy running and screaming. The boy looks so much like Rain’s dead lover. Like their son must look now.
Rain realizes that the glasses give her quick glimpses of her lost son, Dylan, who needs her to find him. Dylan is important to our damaged, hopeless world. But he’s in terrible trouble because evil creatures – the Shadow People – are trying to corrupt and destroy him. If Dylan dies, then hope dies.
But how does a recovering junkie fight supernatural monsters? And how far will one woman go to save her lost son?
