Book Spotlight: Bleak History by John Shirley

Bleak History Cover
About the Book: As far as Gabriel Bleak is concerned, talking to the dead is just another way of making a living. It gives him the competitive edge to survive as a bounty hunter, or "skip tracer," in the psychic minefield known as New York City. Unfortunately, his gift also makes him a prime target. A top-secret division of Homeland Security has been monitoring the recent emergence of human supernaturals, with Gabriel Bleak being the strongest on record. If they control Gabriel, they'll gain access to the Hidden -- the entity-based energy field that connects all life on Earth. But Gabriel's got other ideas. With a growing underground movement called the Shadow Community -- and an uneasy alliance of spirits, elementals, and other beings -- Gabriel's about to face the greatest demonic uprising since the Dark Ages. But this time, history is not going to repeat itself. This time, the future is Bleak. Gabriel Bleak.

(Another blog tour book received too late for review is coming! Hopefully)

We know you're super busy right now, so this is fine!

My daughter is all over the TV show The Ghost Whisperer, so her antennae would perk up at this. I am assuming this is YA?

I had to do the same last week -- work got crazy and reading for work has to come first.

Debbie's World of Books reviewed it today and liked it. This one sounds really interesting.

This was a tight read since it came in so late. I just finished it yesterday and got my review up. The premise is good but I'm hoping the main character becomes more likeable in future books. Can't wait to hear what you think.

Hey, you are not Wonder Woman (que the music) {ok well actually you are but whatever}
You're pretty busy right now, so you have to prioritize things. You'll get to it when you can.
Sounds like a good book though.
