The first novel from iconic X-Files star Gillian Anderson and New York Times best-selling author Jeff Rovin: a science fiction thriller of epic proportions.
Renowned child psychologist Caitlin O'Hara is a single mom trying to juggle her job, her son, and a lackluster dating life. Her world is suddenly upturned when Maanik, the daughter of India's ambassador to the United Nations, starts speaking in tongues and having violent visions. Caitlin is sure that her fits have something to do with the recent assassination attempt on her father - a shooting that has escalated nuclear tensions between India and Pakistan to dangerous levels - but when teenagers around the world start having similar outbursts, Caitlin begins to think that there’s a more sinister force at work.
In Haiti, a student claws at her throat, drowning on dry land. In Iran, a boy suddenly and inexplicably sets himself on fire. Animals, too, are acting irrationally, from rats in New York City to birds in South America to ordinary house pets. With Asia on the cusp of nuclear war, Caitlin must race across the globe to uncover the mystical links among these seemingly unrelated incidents in order to save her patient - and perhaps the world.

Much more than I expected
Great new story. This is a difference type of science fiction or science fantasy and it is amazing.
I would compare A Vision of Fire to saga books who allow the reader to get to know the characters before thrusting them into extreme conflict.
Gillian's tone, inflection, and voice are a perfect match for her book.
I didn't expect a whole lot from this book. To be honest, I bought it because of the author. However, I can't wait for the next one. Really looking forward to seeing how this series develops.
Don't dismiss the book because of the author, and don't solely buy it because of the author. The book stands on its own. The conflict and storyline roll in slowly. Enjoy them in the same manner.

If you expected something a bit X-Files-y ....
If you expected something a bit X-Files-y from Ms. Anderson, you will not be disappointed, though it falls more into Sci-Fi / WooWoo....story a bit confusing to follow, but overall enjoyable. Ms. Anderson's narration was top notch, as it should be.
