Quinn Quicksilver has a pretty ordinary life, aside from being abandoned as an infant and growing up in an orphanage. He aspires to be a writer, but while working for a regional magazine he starts to experience some extraordinary things, like this strange magnetic pull he can’t define and can’t ignore. It saves his life and propels him toward his destiny. He struggles to come to terms with this new normal and the innocence lost. On the way, he meets other extraordinary people and together they find themselves on a quest to save all humankind.
This one definitely builds suspense right to the end, with an undercurrent of enlightenment just beyond the reader’s grasp that finally becomes clear. Quinn’s internal struggle is apparent and we watch as his character matures through the course of the story. It’s a slow burn in the beginning, but it picks up about halfway through. This is really a mix of Jane Hawk meets Odd Thomas, and I would love for this to be a series! The quintessential struggle between good and evil, old and new, and vivid landscapes and characters make this one a great read. I would recommend this for anyone who loves sci-fi thrillers.
