I had never read an urban fantasy novel and fantasy is on my thanks-but-no-thanks list. But when Rick Hall told me the premise of Gnosis, it intrigued me. There's mystery and thriller elements. I really enjoyed this book. Here are a few reasons why:

Samantha Black is one heck of a heroine.

She's determined, strong, and hot-headed. She's a parkour enthusiast, which is something like military obstacle training minus the military. (Think jumping from rooftop to rooftop, climbing up or down brick wa

Gnosis could be a TV series. To me, the draw is the characters that stay with you long after you read about them. Not to mention, the compelling science fiction elements that are unpacked in reveal upon reveal. You won’t know what is going on at first but probably won’t care as you’ll be too busy enjoying Sam’s journey as she figures out her next move while constantly dodging her pursuers.

Picture a spunky teen with an arsenal of parkour gymnastic moves, who is vulnerable but not weak, her coura

What a wild ride! Urban fantasy goes parkour crazy.

From page one, I’m endeared to rebellious, self-possessed teenager Samantha Black. Her first-person narrative and stellar parkour moves whirl you across the city as she searches for her father’s murderer. For a YA novel, the story is set up with all the right ammo — a lovable, but flawed heroine and a mystery to solve. But it quickly morphs into so much more.

When Sam’s (the shortening of her name says it all!) worsening headaches land her in th

“Gnosis” is generally entertaining and well-written by Rick Hall, even if, for my tastes, there aren’t things about it which particularly stand out. It falls very firmly in the young-adult / sci-fi / fantasy camp and features all the usual formulaic elements of this contemporary cross-genre: the resourceful but unwitting teen heroine, with psychic abilities bordering on superpowers and shady government figures in pursuit, to either kill her or harness her ability. The author himself, to my knowl ...more

Such a phenomenal and original story! I love it! Samantha is so resourceful; I love the parkour action also. Alexander is downright adorable. He wants to help so bad.
Rick has wowed me with his writing! His plotting is magnificent, the scene-setting is excellent. I don’t think he wasted a single word. Everything moves the story forward, as the mysteries are peeled back one at a time. Brace yourself, for there are many twists and turns! First person POV does it for me every time, no head-hopping
