Splintered Energy is one of those books that only comes along once in a blue moon. It's innovative, exciting and well written. It will make you laugh, cry, sigh with satisfaction and moan with frustration. I have to admit to bias with this book because I've read it more than once and helped to critique it. My son designed the cover, but please believe me when I say this book is special. You'll not have read anything like it before. The characters will live with you long after the book is finished.

It's the story of what happens at dawn one fateful morning when light splinters. Seven die at locations all over the States and seven new beings are unleashed on the world. They occupy host bodies, inheriting personality traits but not memories. All they want is to return to wherever it is they came from. How - is the question. Where that place is - another. Arlene Webb takes readers on an exciting adventure along with the colors and the humans as they try to reunite with those still missing while battling innocence, psychopathic malevolence and the authorities. It's a struggle for survival.

I wasn't expecting such an excellent novel when I downloaded this for free. The writing flowed and dragged me along on a puzzling and exciting trip. I've never read anything like it. Arlene Webb has woven a fantastic tale of emotions drawn out of colours and the random bodies they inhabit. I became totally engrossed and couldn't wait to read the nest section. Close to the end, I couldn't see how it would end. I must admit to disappointment that further reading would be needed to sort everything out. Easy to do. Download the next book. But wow! What a read this one was.

Written as a “The Review Group” Review Volunteer, see http://thereview2014.blogspot.co.uk

Splintered Energy is a first contact book, set in contemporary America. For this, Ms. Webb has chosen to have the aliens come to Earth, rather than get involved in our own space travel. This first contact does not appear to have been deliberately sought out. Rather, it seems to be an unintentional fallout from an event which, at the end of the book, is still veiled in obscurity. The aliens themselves have no memory of it, and the technological establishments of Earth have not become involved. The encounter is with regular middle-class Americans rather than the military or scientific communities. The title reveals something of the core of the book--the group of aliens are split and identified by the colours of the spectrum.

There is a strong sense that as individuals they are incomplete, and that only in recombination can they regain their real identity--whatever that is. Unfortunately the original event that split them apart also scattered them across the United States, so a considerable part of the plot deals with their journeys. These are random at first, but gradually become purposeful.

Each colour has a separate personality, ranging from benign to rampantly violent, but each is polarised and immature in very distinctive ways. I have to confess I could not really understand why the specific personalities had been chosen by Arlene, nor why they are so strongly gendered. However, the portrayal is consistent throughout the book, so is clearly meaningful. It was also effective as a story device--the separate aliens had unique identities, but always with the sense that once reunited, they would be so much more whole.

But I couldn't bear the rest of the books - my disbelief became unsuspended, and somehow the writing seemed to get worse - I suspect pot-boilerism.
