I am probably the only person in the entire world who didn't read the Harry Potter series despite the fact that my sister gave me the book as a gift. I read to the end of the first page and set it aside because I couldn't get past what I felt was cumbersome prose. Paranormal Summer (Indigo Moon Rising) is not like that. However, like J. K. Rowling, Sherry Guyberson has written a richly layered story that tackles the timeless theme of good versus evil. Guyberson pits three teenagers, each on the cusp of discovering their own paranormal gifts, up against the Dark Side. Unlike my attempts at reading Harry Potter, Guyberson's writing style kept me engaged. And, like any suspense writer worth her salt, she brings the story to a cliff-hanger ending which opens the door for the next book in the series. I hope.
Sherry Guyberson's first effort is worthy of consideration, not only as a new author's work, but among the works of accomplished authors as well. She has crafted a story that compels the reader to continue pursuing the resolution of the plot along with its main characters. Accompanying Jillian in the summer of her 15th year when she was sent away to live with an aunt but finds herself unexpectedly making friends with other gifted teens gives the reader a sense that the otherwordly and mystical are just a glimpse away. Being right there with Ryan as he discovers dark secrets about his family and seeks to put together his place within the entire scheme of things engages the reader who might personally question what it means to be in a battle between good and evil. Watching Sonya blossom out of her humdrum life with her grandmother into a gifted healer who is remembering her gifts from a previous life, we get a sense that all of us may have a latent paranormal gift that is just waiting to be discovered. Guyberson's story is almost like the Twilight Saga blended with the TV series Medium with seasonings of paranormal and mystical themes. Hard to describe but easy to devour, this tasty book is one of the best in the genre.
