Review: A Glimpse of Her Soul by Stuart Jaffe

Young Adult Fantasy
Date Published: 2/11/13

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.

My Review
A Glimpse of Her Soul is a mix of paranormal and sci-fi/fantasy.  It was an engrossing read, that kept me turning pages due mostly to it's very unique plot.  I have never read anything like this before.

The action in the book is very fast paced.  I like fast paced books because they keep you going.  There were a few places that the book was a little too fast paced and could have been slowed down with some more details added.

The characters in the book were developed nicely, with Jackhammer Jack being my favorite.  Gillian acts like a normal teenage girl.  She lashes out at her father and struggles with her feelings while she is struggling for survival.  I think this is pretty realistic of how a teenage girl would act under the circumstances.

This book was a lot of fun and I recommended it to anyone that likes sci-fi/fantasy and anyone looking for something unique.
