A Glimpse of Her Soul Book Tour

Young Adult Fantasy
Date Published: 2/11/13
This was given to me in exchange for an honest review

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 try to kill her so they
can read this message as her soul departs, hoping its information will guide them 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, a touch of romance, and mystery, A Glimpse of Her Soul is
a pulse-pounding ride you're sure to enjoy.

 A longer review to come later on today!

Stuart Jaffe is the author of The Max Porter Paranormal-Mysteries, The Malja Chronicles, The

Bluesman series, and much more. His short stories have appeared in numerous magazines and
anthologies. He is the co-host of The Eclectic Review - a weekly podcast about science, art, and
well, everything. For those who keep count, the latest animal listing is as follows: one dog, four
cats, one albino corn snake, one Brazilian black tarantula, three aquatic turtles, one lop-eared
rabbit, twenty chickens, and a horse. Thankfully, the chickens and the horse do not live inside
the house.



Gillian Boone watched the funeral from the safety of an ancient oak tree. As somber black forms surrounded the grave, drizzle dampened the headstones. She wanted to get in close, to check the body before they lowered it forever, to know whether or not what she had seen was real or just a dream, but she knew she wasn't welcome. Julia Gomez, the most popular girl in school, had died, and no friends of hers would dare let the likes of Gillian attend the funeral.
But the dream haunted her. It had happened a week ago. She woke — she thought she had woken — but was not in her bed. Or her room. Or her house. Confused, she tried to rise, but her body wouldn't respond. Then without her command, she somehow walked into a bathroom — every motion felt wrong, off-balance, out of proportion with where her body should be. In the mirror, she saw the face of Julia Gomez. That's when Gillian knew she was dreaming. And that's when she heard the breathing creature — a sickening sound like air shoved through a tube of mucus.

What I really enjoyed about this book (and indeed it drew me to it in the first place) was the crazy creative premise. I just love the uniqueness of it all! What a fun twist on the paranormal genre! Unfortunately I felt this creativity went a little wrong with the monster descriptions. While I truly love the creative and unique, the monsters came off a bit Scooby-Doo (I'm sorry, I hate saying it, but it's the best comparison).

I like this author - he's got a fresh take, with his plot twists. One thing I will say that might disappoint some readers is there isn't that much romance. There is one very romantic scene and there are hints of it for future sequels. But this is really about Gillian and her journey. Honestly, I found it sort of refreshing for a paranormal book about a teen to be about HER, rather than romance, but if that's important to you (which is fine), be aware of that.

So, I recommend this book. It's fast-paced, interesting, alittle scary/creepy and surprising. All in all, a very good story.
