A Vision of Fire By Gillian Anderson And Jeff Rovin *Review*

*I received a eARC from NetGalley for my honest review*

Renowned child psychologist Caitlin O’Hara is a single mom trying to juggle her job, her son, and a lackluster dating life. Her world is suddenly upturned when Maanik, the daughter of India’s ambassador to the United Nations, starts speaking in tongues and having violent visions. Caitlin is sure that her fits have something to do with the recent assassination attempt on her father—a shooting that has escalated nuclear tensions between India and Pakistan to dangerous levels—but when teenagers around the world start having similar outbursts, Caitlin begins to think that there’s a more sinister force at work. 

In Haiti, a student claws at her throat, drowning on dry land. In Iran, a boy suddenly and inexplicably sets himself on fire. Animals, too, are acting irrationally, from rats in New York City to birds in South America to ordinary house pets. With Asia on the cusp of nuclear war, Caitlin must race across the globe to uncover the mystical links among these seemingly unrelated incidents in order to save her patient—and perhaps the world.


I very much wanted to like this one and I was actually excited to read it. 
Unfortunately I didn't like it as much as I wanted to like it. Don't get me wrong I did keep reading but some parts were slow but I kept reading even though some times I just wanted to quit reading .  

It is well written but I just wish it was action packed.  

I give this 2 out of 3

This will be available in stores October 7th 2014


  1. It always sucks when you're so stoked to read a book and it falls flat. Glad it wasn't a complete dud though.

  2. Oh yes it does and same goes for movies.
    Hopefully if there is a sequel to this book it will be better. I am not completely giving up on this.
