When 16-year-old Gillian Boone discovers that a secret message has been etched into her soul, her world of normal teenage life is destroyed. Now, bizarre monstrosities seek to kill her so they can read this message as her soul departs and use its information to escape back to the world they came from.
Though she has the aid of her father and some new friends, there is only one who has the real power to help. A rogue monster named Jackhammer Jack. But he might want her secret, too, even as he helps her evade the clutches of those pursuing her. With threats surrounding her, Gillian will have to lead her allies in a struggle for survival - a struggle all the more treacherous when her allies are just as dangerous as her enemies.
Filled with action, excitement, magic, romance, and mystery, A Glimpse of Her Soul is a pulse-pounding ride you're sure to enjoy. And just the kind of genre bending you've come to expect from a writer whose motto is Fantasy Knows No Bounds!
Gillian Boone is a strong, young woman but also a teenager. The two worlds smack together and showed a realism that I rarely see in teen books. The novel started out mysteriously enough, snagging the reader in the opening page. Gillian goes from a normal life to running from strange creatures called Callers. Their main purpose is to kill her and read the message on her soul to find their way home. Having to think up so many varieties of Callers takes a massive stroke of imagination. Though if you look at the author's list of pets, it's easy to see where some of the influence came from. :)
