Rain's Reviews: Pulse by Patrick Carman

Pulse (Pulse, #1)
From New York Times bestselling author Patrick Carman, a teen fantasy-adventure of epic proportions. In 2051, some teens have a “pulse,” the power to move objects with their minds. Compulsively readable, with thrilling action scenes and a tender love story.

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.~Goodreads
Pulse is an intoxicating read that make you bite your nails in anticipation and scream for answers. Mr. Patrick has mastered the art of suspense. Sounds slightly diabolical but, hey, everyone has their hobby’s. Apparently his include making readers fear for, cry with, laugh at, and empathize with these characters he skillfully crafts in a way that brings them to life.
Faith is a multifaceted young woman. She is rebellious in a way that usually gets her in trouble. She is quick witted which has endeared her to me. She is intelligent, a quick study, and artistic. But she also lets her emotions rule. She has a short fuse and is prone to let her emotions control her actions.
Hawk is a great little guy. He is hilarious, super friggin’ smart, and knows how to play situations to his advantage.
The rest of the characters play a very important role in the book. Patrick is not one to waste words on fluff. The description though minimal was well thought out and you learned about people and situations when he saw fit. The entire book was an entire spider web woven together and interconnecting in a way that kept me reading all day long. Great Read. And definitely an original apocalypse.
