The Eidolon

The Eidolon - Libby McGugan An intriguingly different debut mixing Dark matter the CERN Large Hadron Collider project and a different view of the paranormal.

McGugan starts out slowly plotwise (intentionally) and builds the main character deliberately so that we believe his transformation from atheistic scientist to something other... She keeps the story grounded in character which allows her to move away from realism in small steps.

It is important to note that if you are looking for great scientific detail about the LHC or the CERN facilities- this is not the book for you. The science is here in small smatterings but is used simply as plot elements.

A good quick read with a fast pace (once it reaches crescendo) and mostly good characters. the ending is a tad forced but a still a good read.
