A horror novel told by a young man who has psychic powers including the title power,
which allows him to see goblins. Goblins are ugly, shape-changing, creatures who
look like normal people on the outside and who live to torture and kill humans. The
hero kills his uncle, who was a goblin, and flees from his home in Oregon and joins
a carnival in Pennsylvania. He meets and falls in love with a carny girl who, it
turns out, can also see the goblins. In part 1 the girl betrays him because she has
made a deal with the goblins to inform on anyone she meets who can see the goblins.
In part 2 she develops a conscience and works with him to kill as many goblins as
they can. Lots of excitement and suspense. Well done.
