I don’t need romance with my sci-fi and fantasy. I don’t need a trilogy to tell a story. But what I like? Great storytelling, an intelligent premise, and the potential for an epic, save-the-world sort of showdown. I mean, every once in a while. When I can get it. Which isn’t as often as I’d like. That may be why I’m looking forward so much to a book I don’t know much about – just that the synopsis sounds like it will be MY sort of book, and hey, that cover art is fantastic. Pulse by Patrick Carman will be published by Katherine Tegen Books (HarperCollins), and will be released on February 26th, 2013.
The year is 2051, and the world is still recognizable. With the help of her mysterious classmate Dylan Gilmore, Faith Daniels discovers that she can move objects with her mind. This telekinetic ability is called a “pulse,” and Dylan has the talent, too.
In riveting action scenes, Faith demonstrates her ability to use her pulse against a group of telekinesis masters so powerful they will flatten their enemies by uprooting street lights, moving boulders, and changing the course of a hurtling hammer so that it becomes a deadly weapon. But even with great talent, the mind—and the heart—can be difficult to control. If Faith wants to join forces with Dylan and save the world, she’ll have to harness the power of both.
Patrick Carman’s Pulse trilogy is a stunning, action-filled triumph about the power of the mind—and the power of love.
