A waking dream, at once powerful and subtly sinister. --Clive Barker, New York Times bestselling author
Jonathan Maberry delivers a perfect suspenseful, edge-of-your-seat tale that will keep you riveted! I've 'Glimpsed' the future and no one tells it better than Jonathan. Jonathan Maberry is always my go-to author for awesome! --#1 New York Times bestseller Sherrilyn Kenyon
With Glimpse, Jonathan Maberry carries us into the fertile liminal zone between waking and dreaming. Monsters dwell there, but so do some unexpected heroes, and none is more unexpected than the tragically damaged Rain Thomas. Rain has been living her life just one small drop of hope away from hopelessness, yet it's upon her slender and storm-tossed frame that Maberry hangs the fate of his world. She's a poignant creation, and it's impossible not to root for her as she makes her way through this wonderful (and wonder-filled) nightmare of a book." --Scott Smith, New York Times bestselling author of The Ruins
Jonathan Maberry is a shapeshifter of a writer, able to get into his characters so deeply that we never doubt his truth for a minute. --Charlaine Harris, #1 International bestseller
"Jonathan Maberry--a master of his craft--has written something exceptional with GLIMPSE ... a relentless and seductive book with real bite, and real heart. Rain's courage inspires, and Doctor Nine will haunt our dreams." --Rachel Caine, New York Times bestselling author of The Great Library series
"Award-winning author Jonathan Maberry hits it out of the park with his latest chilling tour de force, GLIMPSE. He channels the best of Stephen King and Peter Straub to create a harrowing story of a mother and a lost child who are besieged by dark forces shadowing their pasts and futures. Raw and beautiful, detailed and explosive, here is a story that will haunt you long after you close the book."
--James Rollins, New York Times bestseller of The Seventh Plague
"With GLIMPSE, Jonathan Maberry has crafted an extraordinary novel that transcends genre. He has created characters we long to know and touch; and a plot that twists and turns with each engrossing page. GLIMPSE is horror and a dose of fantasy. It's also about people, the human experience, both the frailty and strength that may come to the fore under extraordinary circumstances. A must read for those who love suspense and horror--or, just a remarkably excellent work of fiction!" --New York Times bestseller Heather Graham,
"Once again Jonathan Maberry weaves an unsettling tale that creeps its way into the shadowland between dreams and reality. Like footsteps behind you in a dark alley he masterfully ignites the flames of imagination giving a GLIMPSE of horrors that inhabit this world and the others." --Tony Eldridge, Producer of The Equalizer
"Jonathan Maberry knows how to turn words into cold sweat, and GLIMPSE shows him at his finest. Always one of our best suspense writers, Maberry delivers an engrossing, pulse-pounding novel about twisted lives and a determined, haunted woman readers will not soon forget. You will be as captivated by his characters as they are captivated by their fears and their destiny." --Kevin J. Anderson, #1 New York Times bestselling author of ETERNITY'S MIND.
"A woman suddenly discovers she is losing chunks of time and seeing things. Alarmed by specters glimpsed from the corner of her vision and the depths of her subconscious, she embarks on an unnerving search for answers, only to encounter a disturbing truth she could never have imagined. Eerie and evocative, GLIMPSE, by Stoker-award-winning Jonathan Maberry, is a nightmarish ride into the human psyche.--David Morrell, New York Times bestselling author of Murder As a Fine Art

Fair warning--leave the lights on." --Hank Phillippi Ryan, Agatha, Anthony and Mary Higgins Clark Award winning author

But Glimpse is none of those. Glimpse is a slow-burn, dreamland horror story reminiscent of (and with homages to) Joe Hill's NOS4A2 with a sprinkling of F. Paul Wilson's REPAIRMAN JACK. Doctor Nine is a terrifying villain that you really don't want haunting your dreams!
Glimpse is classic Maberry in that the characters are compelling, the setting an excellent off-kilter twist on the real world, and the themes as broad as they can get - guilt and hope, love and loss.
The end result is a great story you can burn though in a day. Highly recommended!
The story centers around Rain, a former dancer, and three-years-clean addict, who still blames herself for the baby she gave up (at sixteen) for adoption—that and the death of her child’s father, a soldier, who died in the Iraq war.
This is a story about PTSD, a nuanced exploration (through Rain and several other characters) of how our past can still haunt us. It’s a story about Will Power and Friendship’s role in healing. Largely, it’s a story about the fierce determination of a mother’s love—the fight against making the same mistakes her own parents made.
Reflections about, and Questions on Life that Maberry brings to the reader’s attention:
How much of our mental anguish (internalized, self-inflicted pain) is the result of us not forgiving ourselves? How are we dead and alive at the same time as a result of our past mistakes? And how much power do we give those ghosts from our past? After all, we can be our own vampires, sucking life from our selves.
Maberry captures the reality and humanity about PTSD and addiction. I fell in love the protagonist Rain, the bold and empowering woman who works against all odds to find redemption. So, too, of the wide array of characters, I particularly loved Rain’s friends (multi-dimensional, true-to-life New Yorkers) who have their own PTSD horrors to work through yet find ways to help Rain on her journey.
Ultimately, Maberry takes you deep into horror for a heart-pounding psychological ride as Rain struggles to find peace, truth, and forgiveness. And it’s a visual wonderland that strikes visceral responses: you’ll see, hear, and taste everything through Maberry’s rewarding prose.
I agree with Clive Barker, who says that Glimpse is, “A waking dream, at once powerful and subtly sinister.”
