Review: Blue Dome by J.G. Gill

Blue Dome is the first part of the 'Blue Dome' series.
It's an ordinary Thursday afternoon when sixteen-year old Clare de Milo arrives home from school to find that intruders have broken into her house and everything's been destroyed. Her father and step-mother are missing and, scrawled in blood on a bedroom mirror, is the word 'RUN'. Clare and her brother Bede have suddenly become fugitives, uncertain who they can trust as they try to escape the relentless pursuit of the mysterious and dangerous Demarge. But why is Clare, a mere teenage girl, so important to a man as powerful as Demarge and why is he determined to use her to gain entrance into a secret sanctuary known as the Slipworld? These are the questions that Clare, her brother, and their friends must attempt to answer as they discover that the world they know is not all it seems...
Blue Dome was an excellent story with an exciting and fast-paced plot. Paranormal adventure that is full of creepy characters, evil eels, and danger, it keeps the reader on the edge of their seat. I would have given this book five stars but the explanation of the Slipworld and angels and demons and God was not realistic and well-explained enough for me. I'm a huge fan of sci-fi and fantasy so I'm used to alternate worlds that are well-constructed. Author J.G. Gill attempts to explain how God came about and how he created the Earth but it almost sounded like a story that a parent would tell a child. Unfortunate because the rest of the plot was thrilling, exciting, and fast-paced. Three and a half stars.
