Overview

Logan Walker has a gift. He senses supernatural trouble before it happens. But when his special talent predicts hell on earth, he knows his gift has become a nightmare for him and his unusual family. Possessing various paranormal abilities, the Walkers have, through generations spanning thousands of years, protected the human race from supernatural predators. These creatures enter our world through dimensional rifts and must be defeated or returned to their world before wreaking havoc in our own. But the Walkers have suffered a long war of attrition and their numbers have dwindled. They are at their weakest when our world faces its greatest threat. And time is running out.

Five Stars! Pleasant dreams will be all but impossible as you read this incredible story... This book could very well be the first of a new series. (No, I have not heard that it will be, but I can sure hope!).... This is a very intense story. I could not read fast enough and was eager to find out what would happen next... I urge all fans of horror or the paranormal to purchase a copy. SHIMMER gives me shivers!

This is the first book I have read by this author and I was impressed. The characters were well written, plenty of action and gore, great world building, and a fast moving plot. It is over 1300 pages on my Nook but the stoy drags you in from the start and keeps you riveted until the end. The way this ended left a possibility for a sequel--hint, hint. I totally enjoyed this read and look forward to more journeys into Mr. Passarella's tales.

On my Nook this book was over 1300 pages, which I love. The story is AWESOME!!!! If a book doesn't hook me in the first couple pages, I don't read it...this book hooked me in the very first paragraph. I was so into this story and the people in it, I finished it in two days. The last few pages made me cry...THAT is the kind of story I like, keeps you reading to the end, you feel what the characters feel and keeps you on the edge of your seat. I am soooo hoping for a continuance of the Walker family story.
