Glimpse (The Dean Curse Chronicles, #1)
Steven Whibley

“Save them, Dean. Save them all….”

Dean Curse avoids attention the way his best friend Colin avoids common sense. Which is why he isn’t happy about being Abbotsford’s latest local hero – having saved the life of a stranger, he is now front page news. Dean’s reason for avoiding the limelight? Ever since his heroic act, he’s been having terrifying visions of people dying and they’re freaking him out so badly his psychologist father just might have him committed. Dean wants nothing more than to lay low and let life get back to normal.

​But when Dean’s visions start to come true, and people really start dying, he has to race against the clock – literally – to figure out what’s happening. Is this power of premonition a curse? Or is Dean gifted with the ability to save people from horrible fates? The answer will be the difference between life and death.​

Glimpse (The Dean Curse Chronicles, #1) book cover

“First step to recovery is acceptance,” he said. Acceptance was the last thought on my mind. Answers, that’s what I wanted. That was the only thing that would help.

I had to read this because Disruption, the first of Whibley’s titles I read, utterly hooked me. This was his debut novel, so I expected to come away thinking it needed more polish, or that he’d have gotten better as he went on.

although I prefer Disruption because of the genre, the writing is as compelling and easy to read as that here. It’s a clever, deeply thought-provoking work with plenty of action to keep the story going whilst packing powerful messages. This guy’s writing is just so easy to read, enjoyable and absolutely spot-on for his age bracket that I wish wholeheartedly I was a teen again, just so I could soak them up as intended. If they’re doing this to me now, I can only imagine the power they’d hold over a younger adult. BRILLIANT.
