Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

Kenyon (Bloodstone) shifts smoothly between '80s-style supernatural horror and modern-day science thriller in this superb sophomore effort. Sarah Voorsanger's birth was so explosive that the hospital burned down. Her grandparents attempted to raise her, but after several episodes of psychokinesis, they decided she was the Antichrist and turned her over to the state. Now 10 years old, Sarah is virtually imprisoned in a Boston institution, where agents of Helix Pharmaceuticals experiment on her with drugs designed to activate psychic abilities. When psychology grad student Jess Chambers bonds with Sarah, first outraged by her condition and then shocked by her extraordinary paranormal talents, she knows she must rescue the child from Helix before the company awakens her most deadly powers. Readers, left breathless, will hope Kenyon makes good on hints of a sequel. (Dec.)

    Amazing.

    The Reach starts of slow, the language is to iffy and it was kinda of hard to get in to. However, twenty pages in, i was trapped.<BR/><BR/>This wanderful novel was about a ten year old girl named Sarah, who was locked away not long after she turned one, and han never since seen the light of day; literally.<BR/><BR/>Jess, a student in college to become a phyciatrist, is pulled aside by her professor and asked to do a special task; pull Sarah out from within herself.<BR/><BR/>After being locked away for so long, probbed, tested, and been told how bad she was, she had simply withdrawn into herself, where no one could reach her.<BR/><BR/>When Jes arrived at the institution, she was in a straightjacket, and hadn't talked or even made a noise for over three months.<BR/><BR/>It's in that one moment that Jess see's the girl, that she knows something is wrong - she has to save her.<BR/><BR/>As the plot unfolds, Jes learns that she'd been set up, they had known all along she could pull the girl out of herself, and would fall in love with this helpless girl. <BR/><BR/>And then, it's a race against time.<BR/><BR/>Sarah doesn't have much time before she either explodes, and refuses to take the horrible things they do to her anymore, or they finally succeed in killing her.<BR/><BR/>Either way, Jes is going to have to make a choice, and when people aren't who they've said they are, who do you ask for help?

    Weird

    I enjoyed the book--but thought it was a out of the ordinary--probably not something I would normally read.

    This nod to King¿s Firestarter, THE REACH is a superb thriller

    She was born with an out of control psychokinetic skill of a fire bringer who burned down the hospital when she left the womb. Her grandparents raised Sarah Voorsanger until their fear of her ability following a few haunting incidents made them dump her on the state. They believe she is the Antichrist. -------------- In Boston the state has locked away the ten years old Sarah so she can harm no one. Helix Pharmaceuticals conduct experiments on her using drugs that stimulate psychic skills. Psychology graduate student Jess Chambers is shocked by the treatment the preadolescent child receives. She vows to somehow rescue Sarah, especially when she realizes the lack of restraint the child has in keeping her talent in check while Helix is trying to amplify what is already dangerous.--------------- This nod to King¿s Firestarter, THE REACH is a superb thriller as the ¿evil¿ private sector gigantic pharmaceutical wants to use the girl (instead of the government). The story line is simple and kept that way throughout, which just enhances the tension of a twenty something heroine all alone battling a Goliath in order to save a child that in the belief of the would be rescuer subsequently many more people too if Sarah is pushed beyond what her mind can accept as rational.-------------- Harriet Klausner
