Charlie McGee is just a cute little girl, yet she is denied anything resembling a normal life.Read more ›
Firestarter starts out with Andy and Vicky McGee meeting each other at a drug testing job offer known as "The Shop". Andy and Vicky fall in love and end up having Charlie, which I think is a boy name but surprisingly Charlie is a girl. However as the story of this family goes on Charlie, only 8 years old, becomes aware that she posses extremely strong mysterious powers due to the combination of the drugs that both Andy and Vicky took. "The shop" turns into a secret Federal government that kills Vicky to try to get to Charlie. After every failure to capture Charlie, "The Shop" chase both Andy and Charlie isolating them from mankind taking them to the border of insanity. The fact that the drug agents make Charlie angry it also encourages her to release her powers against evil. Now the question throughout the novel is the following: "Is Charlie really evil or good?". To make things more exciting a hitman is introduced to become Charlie's friend. The Hitman begins to learn more about death than any of his killings he had throughout his career. The story has so many blasts and excitement its hard not to go into further details. I will leave it up to you to discover those details.
The novel has so much intensity that the author goes deeply into the mind of the main characters and puts the reader to the tip of their shoes cheering for Andy and Charlie. The book made me think that if such people existed with powerful powers such as pyrokinesis how would the world be today?
