...the nearly unreadable Blue Light is a serious disappointment. Mosley can't be faulted for his ambition, but he should have had the good sense to refrain from releasing what reads like an unpromising first draft.

Synopsis

A cosmic blue light shines down on Earth creating a race of gods—and demons—whose battle for supremacy will determine the fate of the planet

It is the mid 1960s, and the people of San Francisco are ready for transcendence. One night, beams of blue light streak down from space, killing some, driving others mad, and lifting a lucky few to a state of blissful brilliance. For the surviving, newly evolved super race of “blues,” the powers of the universe are within reach. Under their guidance, Earth will either be raised to heaven or dragged to hell.

Horace LaFontaine is also touched by the light—but instead of advancing to a higher state, he finds his body inhabited by a vicious intergalactic visitor known as Gray Man. Horace must watch, helpless, as Gray Man turns his body into a weapon and uses it to target the blues, who will need every ounce of their immense power just to survive.
