Jonah Rowe, a bored accountant and aspiring novelist, is sick and tired of his job as an accountant. He is burnt out from all the office gossip, politics, and double talk, and he longs for his life to matter. Truth be told, Jonah wants anything besides the lame routine of coasting through his workday....only to psych himself up enough to do it all over again the next day. He only wishes that his life had some meaning.
Amidst the combination of writer's block and society's expectations to have a "real" 9-5 job, Jonah gets his wish.
His world is turned completely upside down one evening when his vision inexplicably turns blue for several moments. He then receives a warning from a spectral visitor that not only is he in danger, but everything in his life is about to change.
Overnight, Jonah transforms from an overworked, underpaid accountant to the centerpiece of a spectral battle. Will he rise to the occasion? Can he accept that everything he knows about life and death is completely wrong? And, most importantly, will he be able to comprehend and harness the power of the mysterious 11th Percent?
Follow Jonah's journey in this new breed of ghost story!

This was an interesting book. For someone (me) who loves reading romance books reading just paranormal was a great task. And I was surprised at how much I loved it. I love watching movies that are like this book, even action, sci-fi, but reading it was never something I would have done. Since the moment I read the synopsis I knew it would be really interesting and it was.
This book doesn't let you go through it without using you mind. Through every word, every sentence it demands your attention and focus. It is surprising how well this author's imagination ran, because I wouldn't be able to think of it no matter what. So many things, just amazing.
Even though it took me some time to read it, because it is rather long, I think it was time well spent.

He holds hold a Bachelor's and Master's Degree in Social Work from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, and spent several years as a therapist and mental health clinician.
