A Vision of Fire is an excellent debut from Gillian Anderson, the world-renowned actress of the X-Files television show, and Jeff Rovin.
The prologue introduces the reader to a fascinating discovery: a stone etched with mysterious markings. Then, in Chapter One, the reader meets Ganak Pawar, India’s permanent representative to the United Nations office in New York, and his sixteen-year-old daughter, Maanik. By page 12, Pawar barely survives an assassination attempt, while Maanik begins to have violent visions.
Ms. Anderson’s style is very detailed and descriptive. The reader feels like he is immersed in the story, enjoying every part of the scenes. The pace is fast, the dialogue is engaging, and the story never has a dull moment.
Dr. Caitlin O’Hara is called to treat Maanik, and Caitlin soon realizes there is something very unique and strange about Maanik’s condition. When even stranger events begin to happen around the world, Cailtin understands that these events must be connected. And she is determined to discover the truth that is out there.
But what is the truth? What or who is behind sinister events? And what will Caitlin have to do to learn the truth?
