Richard Dansky's Firefly Rain doesn't read like a debut novel. The main character, Jacob Logan, draws the reader in from the start. Jacob comes across as intelligent, articulate, and logical. When strange things seem to happen around him, it's hard to tell whether he's succumbed to the pressure or whether his imaginings are real. Richard Dansky handles the uncertainty with considerable skill.

Although hints are dropped throughout the book, the significance of the fireflies is not revealed until nearly the end of the novel. The characters, action, and pacing work together well to give us an unusual mix of thriller, suspense, and horror. If you're a fan of the genre and looking for a fun, diverting read, I highly recommend Richard Dansky's Firefly Rain.
