The Crimson Manifest is part of The Keeper of the Hourglass Series by G L Garrett. Peter Bartell has been studying a strange disease that’s affecting the world’s wheat fields. As an employee of the FBI, he has been trying to uncover whether the blight that has destroyed so much food is part of an agroterrorism plot. While Peter is going through some items from an ill-fated trip he took in his youth, he discovers a quill and a mysterious object. The quill shocks him when he touches it, and he soon learns that the ball is a Pomander Watch, a rare relic with a mysterious story. As Peter searches for the reason the wheat fields continue to be destroyed, he stumbles on the answer by mistake and learns that something that happened to him on a day he can’t remember will help him.
Readers who enjoy action and mystery will devour The Crimson Manifest, as it truly reveals the power of the pen. G L Garrett delivers a book that will keep readers turning pages until the very end. The book is even more interesting as the author was once employed by the FBI, and he created Peter’s character from that perspective. The author did a fantastic job constructing a supernatural world, and the jumps between worlds provide an element of suspense. The book seemed to come full circle, and the theme of forgiveness is expressed well. This would be a good book for teens and adults, as the story itself is thought-provoking and well-written.
