The Encounter, episode one of Boreal and John Grey
Chrsytalla Thoma did not disappoint. Her fast-action, paranormal fantasy captured my attention from the first page and took me through to the end in no time. I was impressed by her excellent story-telling and by how her scenes were so vivid; I truly felt I was there in the action!
Encounter, Episode 1 of Boreal and John Grey, is about Ella, a Paranormal Bureau Agent. What does she do? She fights Shades! The shades are nasty creatures that enter the world through a veil that thins. They are here to KILL – their main objective, but upon whose orders – no one knows. Only a handful of people can see the Shades, such as Ella. Some are able to hear them and they are called Oracles.
Simon, Ella’s Paranormal Agent partner, is missing and so Ella begins her search to find him. Along the way, Ella is saved twice from viscous Shade attacks by a mysterious man, who follows the thinning of the veil. She wants to recruit him but he has put up a barrier. There is more to this man and Ella won’t stop until she knows more about him. But where is Simon? What is happening in this world and how are so many Shades able to enter, to Kill?
A short read it is but Chrystalla Thoma has promised more. I, for one, want to find out who and what John Grey is – a name that keeps cropping up. I want to know what lies beyond the veil. I hope to find out in Episode 2!
Well done Chrystalla on a wonderful start.
