Glimmer by Tricia Cerrone

MoMo’s Book Diary recommends this amazing novel as a 5 star read.                   

Incredible!

Glimmer is a lengthy book, but a well told story. I was captivated from the start and found myself unable to switch off the light and go to bed – a definite page turner!  The characters are well-developed and believable – even those who were human-enhanced.

It is an action thriller aimed at young adults but I could totally relate, although I am certainly not a young reader! It will leave you begging for more. I can’t wait to read more of this series.

Thanks to NetGalley for the opportunity to read this book which I would not have otherwise picked up.

Synopsis

The Black Swan Files begin… At certain moments in history, when several impossible-to-predict events collide, they create what’s known as a Black Swan–an event that can change how we look at science, technology, even our history. Jocelyn Albrecht is one such Black Swan. Infected by the biotechnology her parents sought to develop, she has become human enhanced–an H+.

The accident that gave Jocelyn new powers also killed her family. In their place she is raised at Camp Holliwell by her “uncle”–a government funded scientist–and his league of doctors who study and test Jocelyn daily in the hopes of learning how to replicate her. The military has another goal in mind–to make her an asset.

After losing one family and the home where she belonged, Jocelyn strives to keep her Holliwell family happy, as odd as they might be. That is until she finds out the truth…Uncle Laurence is using her as a guinea pig, her brother and sister are still alive, and she doesn’t have long to live. Now Jocelyn only cares about finding her real family. The problem–breaking out of a highly classified, military facility before the next experiment kills her.
