Blog Tour: Bleak History by John Shirley



Gabriel can communicate with the dead and uses this talent to help him get what he wants, when he wants it. Soon Gabriel is going to come face to face with reality and realize that nothing is free. Everything has a price and sooner or later, someone or something, is going to come along to collect.

The government has had their eye on Gabriel for a while. As they try to determine the extent of his abilities, they are also thinking of all the ways they can use Gabriel to their advantage. Pretty soon, it becomes apparent that Gabriel may be the only chance the world has for survival.

Wow! I love books about the supernatural. If you like to read about spirits, demons, etc. I think you should pick up this book.
