The characters are fun, the banter spiffy, the plot pace fast, and the story draws you in effectively.
This is not a quick read , there was a lot of terminology and theories used in the storyline that may have been accurate but to the untrained seemed very confusing.
Niki Driscoll
This was book 1 in the Transformation Series, I look forward to book 2 to see what Ms. Gimpel does with her intriguing characters.

Format: Paperback
Doctor Laura Mclnnis not only has a special gift that helps her with her patients, but she is a gift to the world she lives in. Although Laura's unique psychic ability is a secret, she uses it to understand her patients. However, her clinical experience isn't enough when multiple threats begin to enter the world of chaos she lives in. As Laura is confronted with helping a couple sort out their problems, danger begins to increase, and survival becomes the name of the game. Who had the same dream as Laura, and what was it about? Why did Laura consult a psychic, was she in love with Trevor, and did they trust each other? I highly recommend this book to all contemporary fantasy lovers, who enjoy mystery, combined with intense suspense, and romance. Ann Gimpel's expertise in psychology shines through page-after-page, blended with thrills, chills, and mystical-magic made for a movie screen. The author takes the reader through a haunted house of horror as Laura is faced with crisis as the clock ticks fast in her desperate search for answers. What powerful force does Laura struggle with, and how does the old woman help? Time is running out, along with the comforts of civilization, is there hope for the future? "PSYCHE'S PROPHECY" is as thrilling as WHAT LIES BENEATH, as chilling as THE HAND THAT ROCKS THE CRADLE and as mysterious as THE SIXTH SENSE, with Bruce Willis.

Format: Paperback
This is Ann Gimpel's first book, and I must say I am quite impressed. However, I am starting to see a pattern in these new authors I am reviewing- their books often do not fit cleanly into a publishing niche. I guess that's why so many new authors are finding it hard to find a publisher (Note that Ann had no such problem, but many other new authors have). You could call this "Urban Fantasy" (it's set mostly in Seattle, and there is some magic and other fantasy elements, it's also a little dark at times which seems to be also a hallmark of "Urban Fantasy"). Or perhaps it is "Dystopian", as it's set in a (fairly realistic as far at that goes) near future where things are starting to go very wrong. One could call it a "Eco-thriller" as that is the main cause of things starting to go sharply downhill. Or Psychological thriller. Or perhaps Suspense. It also has more than a little romance (and what's nice is that the romance is realistic, between a loving couple) Well, anyway, you see what I mean.

So, even tho I can't fit it easily into a genre, I can tell you what it is anyway- a very good read, a real page turner. The characters are well drawn out, realistic and our protagonists are sympathetic but not super-powerful or anything like that.

Yes, there are a couple of the stumbles one would expect from a new author- a couple of side-plots and characters really go nowhere and distract. But my only real complaint is that there wasn't MORE! The book does end on a bit of a cliffhanger.

I rcvd a copy for review.

Format: Paperback
Lara McInnis is a psychologist with a psychic gift. Although she's kept her gift hidden, she uses it to help understand her patients. She excels at her job until one pair of patients block her insight. This couple has big problems, and she can't see the danger lurking behind the husband's belligerent demeanor. Her involvement with them sets her on a roller coaster ride of horrors, and she must fight her way out of it to survive.

Meanwhile, the price of oil is going up. The city has major power outages, and riots have broken out in other parts of the country. Lara, her boyfriend, and her psychology student have all had the same dream signifying something precarious about the earth. Lara must consult a psychic to determine the meaning behind the dream.

With multiple threats brewing, Psyche's Prophecy builds up with intense suspense, keeping me from putting it down. The paranormal aspect of it is very interesting, and the characters are so well developed they seemed like real people. I especially enjoyed the deepening relationship between Lara and her boyfriend, Trev. They learn to trust in each other, and their love pulls them through the hardships they face. Ann Gimpel uses her own expertise as a psychologist to make this story believable. Her prose flows in beautiful sentences, making it fun and easy to read.

Format: Paperback
In a style that blends in hints of Ray Bradbury and Stephen Donaldson, this contemporary fantasy "eco-thriller" set in Seattle and surroundings could be taking place next week or in the next 20, 50 or 100 years. Author Ann Gimpel lets the readers slip easily inside the heads of the main characters Lara and Trevor--a very real couple with all its flaws and imperfections--and Gimpel's background in psychology gives us a rare understanding of what they're thinking and feeling. When Lara and Trevor, and the world around them, are struck by crisis after crisis (power outages, oil shortage, and a stalker who tries to break into their home and murder them), they turn to a magical, powerful old druid woman, whose abilities slot into our world just as naturally as the trees that make up her house. With her help, they begin to see a way forward, but it will prove to be a long road with much struggle and sorrow along the way. I loved the very clear sense I got that the characters could be real people, and the mysticism that enters the story is so enticing that I just wanted more. This was, for me, a true page-turner.
