    Well, I kept hoping that this hot mess might pull together toward the end, but it's just a big ol' mug of nope. I'm actually quite shocked, as I've loved everything else I've read from Maberry, and that includes the Pine Deep Trilogy, all the Joe Ledger books, and his Sam Hunter stu...

    I am a fan of Maberry?s Joe Ledger series so I was super excited that Netgalley gave me a chance to read this. Overall it was good. Pretty trippy, but these types of books are good when all I?m reading lately is crime novels. Reminded me a lot of Doctor Sleep by Stephen King. I wou...

    I wasn?t sure what to expect from this story as it wasn?t a Joe Ledger book, a series I?m very fond of. If I had to classify this one it would be horror lite. Yes there were things that sacred me, but more because of what the bad thing was going after, hope. You don?t really ge...

    I don't believe I've ever read a novel quite like GLIMPSE before; I'm not even sure how to categorize it. After Rain has spent about 3 years trying to get clean, she is now battling a new demon who is trying to destroy her son. Such a truly creepy story filled with, not just dreams, ...

    4 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum https://bibliosanctum.com/2018/04/22/... Glimpse is my second book by Jonathan Maberry, and I felt like I was taking a little bit of a chance because several years ago my attempt to read his book Patient Zero did not go so well. However, the premise...

    Thank you to St. Martin's Press for a copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review. "Time is a scalpel," said Doctor Nine, "and hope is the whetstone that keeps it sharp." This is the first May read for the horror read and review group NightWorms, and for the first time th...

    Wow. I am a long time fan of Jonathan Mayberry. This was a different sort of book from what I am used to from him. It was a mind bender and the mystery in this story kept me guessing until the very end. I very much enjoyed this! Had a little bit of urban fantasy in the mix. It was an o...

    I?ve been a fan of Jonanthan Maberry for a good number of years and was delighted to hear of this new supernatural stand-alone novel not connected to the numerous series, collections, comics or YA projects this prolific author is often involved with. I enjoyed it so much I comfortabl...

    Glimpse First a big thank you to the publisher and netgalley for a copy of this book to review. I love the Joe Ledger series. My best friend Morgannah Lefebvre teases me that hes my book boyfriend. So I wasn?t going into this novel unfamiliar with Maberry's work. Yet in some wa...

    I wasn't sure how to feel about this book until I was 3/4 of the way through it and then I really liked it. I really, really liked it. You just spend the first good chunk of the book trying to figure out what the hell is going on. I don't mind that feeling for a little bit, but it went...

    #netgalley #Glimpse Jonathan Maberry has a creepy, twisty novel that will keep you on your toes. Rain is a woman, who is cracking mentally. She has become haunted and obsessed about an infant she gave up for adoption years before. While her mental health struggles, she finds a pair of...

    "I lived in a haunted house, except it was me who was haunting it." I don't even know where to start with Glimpse. This book was recommended to the Night Worms by Michael Patrick Hicks, and he was spot-on. Glimpse is so odd, and I loved it. This book has a slow, creeping horror, and...

    3.5* Well, that was certainly different....! What would you do if you woke up one morning to realize you missed out on an entire day! That?s exactly what happened to Rain as she set off for a job interview, only to discover she?d missed her appointment by 24 hours! On her...

    I received this book from Net Galley. Glimpse is a story of recovery, atoning for past mistakes, and facing fears. Maberry has had near success in Hollywood in the past, and Glimpse would make for an engaging adaptation on the silver screen and could make him more of a household na...

    I?m not good at writing reviews so I just do it when I feel as if I owe the author more than the purchase of the book after having read it. Jonathan Maberry has, very sneakily, become my favorite author. This is a result of his constant production and quality of work. He just write k...

    NetGalley provided ARC. This may be the creepiest story I have read in a long time. Jonathan Maberry has created a world of shadows and pain. But he has also created a world of hope. One simple word to drive away the chaos. Just, whatever you do, don't say his name. ...

    Thank you to the publisher for an advanced copy in exchange for an honest review. I didn't (couldn't) finish this book because of these issues: 1. The protagonist, Rain, is unreliable and not likable. I spent too much time trying to grab at wispy strands of the story and getting fru...

    Thanks to Netgalley for the ARC in return for review. This book reminds me of Stephen King books from 20 years ago back when Stephen King was the best horror writer to ever pick up a pen. He is still the greatest ever but his writing style has changed. Jonathon Mayberry has picked up...

    Jonathan Maberry is hit or miss with me. When I love the man's work, I love it. But if I don't love it, I can barely finish it. This time I got about 60 pages in and just realized I didn't have the energy to even try to finish it. ...

    Glimpse by Jonathan Maberry is a refreshingly original thriller that kept me totally captivated (but also incredibly nervous!) throughout. I just couldn't wait to see how this story played out! Full disclosure: I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. T...

    The book blurb for Glimpse by Jonathan Maberry starts off calling it a chilling thriller but to me thriller are generally real people and real events with maybe the occasional touch of supernatural. Glimpse however already tells a reader that it is blending reality and nightmares so to...

    "They're his nightbirds. They always watch you. They want to steal your time" Whatever you do don't say his name..... Glimpse by Jonathan Maberry is a chilling story that bridges nightmares and reality to it's raw core. Our main character Rain wakes up getting ready for a job ...

    I had to pull the plug on this one less than seventy pages from the end. I tried to finish, I really did; but Glimpse is a nonsensical, jumbled mess. Or maybe it just went over my head. Thanks to St. Martin?s Press for supplying us Night Worms with free hardcovers in exchange for ...

    Enter a world where magic is real. And the difficulties of dealing with Guilt and Grief are all pervasive .... This is nothing like the Joe Ledger books .. but rather , a unique, supernatural chiller tour de force. The "Cracked World Society": a group of 4 addicts fight for sobriety. ...

    Thanks to NetGalley and St. Martin?s Press for providing an eARC in exchange for an honest review. 3 1/2 Stars Although Glimpse was much slower than what I?ve come to expect from Jonathan Maberry, and there were a couple of characters who annoyed and distracted me, I still wo...

    Thank you St. Martin's for "granting my wish" through Netgalley and providing a digital copy of this book to read and review. For some reason, I got this author confused with the one who wrote Raising Stony Mayhall. I guess I was mixing that zombie book up with Patient Zero. Ha! ...
