A Glimpse of Her Soul by Stuart Jaffe

When 16-year-old Gillian Boone discovers that a secret message has been etched into her soul,

her world of normal teenage life is destroyed. Now, bizarre monstrosities try to kill her so they

can read this message as her soul departs, hoping its information will guide them back to the

world they came from.

Though she has the aid of her father and some new friends, there is only one who has the real

power to help. A rogue monster named Jackhammer Jack. But he might want her secret, too,

even as he helps her evade the clutches of those pursuing her.

With threats surrounding her, Gillian will have to lead her allies in a struggle for survival - a

struggle all the more treacherous when her allies are just as dangerous as her enemies.

Filled with action, excitement, magic, a touch of romance, and mystery, A Glimpse of Her Soul is

a pulse-pounding ride you're sure to enjoy.


Gillian Boone watched the funeral from the safety of an ancient oak tree. As somber black forms surrounded the grave, drizzle dampened the headstones. She wanted to get in close, to check the body before they lowered it forever, to know whether or not what she had seen was real or just a dream, but she knew she wasn't welcome. Julia Gomez, the most popular girl in school, had died, and no friends of hers would dare let the likes of Gillian attend the funeral.

But the dream haunted her. It had happened a week ago. She woke — she thought she had woken — but was not in her bed. Or her room. Or her house. Confused, she tried to rise, but her body wouldn't respond. Then without her command, she somehow walked into a bathroom — every motion felt wrong, off-balance, out of proportion with where her body should be. In the mirror, she saw the face of Julia Gomez. That's when Gillian knew she was dreaming. And that's when she heard the breathing creature — a sickening sound like air shoved through a tube of mucus.
