Incredibly descriptive and totally absorbing from one scene to the next, Cook's "Grey" provides an intriguing look into what it would be like for a normal young woman to--suddenly and without warning--manifest strange powers, causing a horrific incident that begs she be placed under severe restrictions and--at all times--controlled. Readers will feel a great deal of empathy for Gabrian as she tries to accept her newfound identity and piece together the puzzle of her own twisted past--which seems quite foreign and unacceptable to her. As we walk her road, we feel her horror, her loneliness, her abandonment, her revulsion, her grief, and her pain. And as Cook adeptly guides the reader through the mind and heart of her protagonist, she opens Gabrian's eyes to an alternative world, forcing her to deal with a multitude of issues resulting from her mysterious past, and leading her to the discovery of her true self ... whether she likes it or not. Over and over again, the reader sinks and soars as Gabrian wavers in her acceptance of what she is told to believe and what truth she learns about her past. But our screams cannot be muffled when our protagonist finally begins to test the full force of her powers and places her life and the lives of those she loves in severe jeopardy.
"Grey" is artfully told, with mind-boggling twists and turns that tear at your heart. There are more than a few standout scenes that you will never see coming--and never forget--as Gabrian takes steps to forge her own future within the new paranormal norm. By the end of this tale, you'll be asking yourself if you are who you think you are. Trust me, this is one book you'll want to read all in one sitting ... The highs and lows hit you at a moment's notice, and waiting any longer to find out the ultimate truth might just put your own life at risk!
