I loved this book due to the fact that you can "hear" the parts that were written by one author then the other linking everything together. just loved the follow.

I picked it up mostly because Dana Scully wrote this with an author - there's some elements of interest as your protagonist is a lady and these thriller type novels usually have a man running all over the place. If you like your massive conspiracy in hiding but trying to take over the world only to be stopped by that one person who happens to be your main character type of book, read this!

Sometimes one cannot read back from the latest installment. Such a time. If you are looking at this series be sure to start at book one.

“A Vision of Fire” is about Caitlin O’Hara, a young New York City psychiatrist and single mother. One day, Caitlin is called in to help a young girl named Maanak after she suffers a psychotic break. However, Caitlin has other ideas about what may be afflicting the young girl, especially when other teenagers around the world begin to experience the exact same attacks as Maanik. As Caitlin and her friend Ben dive deeper into the mysterious illness affecting the teens, they must race against time and history to try and come up with answers.

“A Vision of Fire” is the first book in the ‘EarthEnd Saga’, and falls into the scifi genre. This novel is incredible, and has a rapid, interesting plot line. The plot also is a perfect blend of science fiction and reality. The characters of “A Vision of Fire” are all unique, and each one is believable and realistic. Caitlin is a driven and lovable protagonist, and the diverse supporting characters are all wonderful. “A Vision of Fire” is an expansive book, with multiple countries all different from each other acting as the setting. This helps to create a sense of unity among nations, which is an important part of the book.

The author of this review highly recommends “A Vision of Fire”, as it is a clever and engaging novel. There are some symbols and deeper meanings in “A Vision of Fire”, but not enough to sustain an essay or ‘book talk’. Due to some scary scenes, the author of this review believes this novel to be suitable for ages sixteen and up.

"Some readers might recognize Gillian Anderson's name from her years playing Agent Dana Scully on television's popular X-Files. Prepare to get to know her as an author -- A Vision of Fire is the 1st in a planned series. Starring Manhattan psychiatrist Caitlin O'Hara, this science-fiction-tinged thriller begins with the bizarre, self-harming behaviour of the 16-year-old daughter of the Indian ambassador to the U.N. -- though soon adolescents around the world are exhibiting similar symptoms. Gripping and well-paced, this is one for fans of Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child's Pendergast novels to try."

A child psychologist seeks to help the teenage daughter of a UN diplomat who is having mysterious psychotic episodes and uncontrollable fits, no longer herself. This leads her to travel across the globe to explore similar conditions. The connections are astounding, with global implications. Does all this have something to do with a mysterious artifact? Aliens? A historic civilization? The well-developed, strong character of Caitlin O’Hara and straightforward writing style hooked me on this book!
