Pre Pub Book Buzz: A Vision of Fire by Gillian Anderson and Jeff Rovin

A couple of weeks ago I put up a post about some free summer samplers, one of which was a peek at the new Simon451 list. The first title featured in that particular sampler just happens to be the debut release from Gillian Anderson, A Vision of Fire, a book she's cowritten with Jeff Rovin.

Here's a bit about the book from Goodreads if you haven't yet checked out the sample:

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.

A Vision of Fire is to be the first in a new series and I have to say the first chapters are really intriguing! Unfortunately it's not due out until October, so I've a bit of a wait to read beyond chapter two. I am pretty stoked, though.
