Quake (Pulse #3) by Patrick Carman

Sponsored post: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to HarperCollins and Edelweiss.

Blurb (from Goodreads):
In the year 2051, Faith can move mountains… Faith Daniels and Dylan Gilmore are in love, and they have a special ability called a pulse: they can move things with their minds. They're caught in the middle of a deadly war with two other pulses: Clara and Wade Quinn, who have joined forces with Hotspur Chance, the most wanted man in the world. At the start of Quake, Faith and Dylan are holed up in a spectacular abandoned mountain lodge (once used in the film The Shining 71 years before), and their Intel friend Hawk leaves them in the middle of the night, in spite of a newly blossoming love with a girl named Jade. Hawk’s plan is to penetrate the Western State and make contact with a sleeper cell working on the inside that will give them valuable information about Hotspur’s violent plan. But while Hawk is searching for answers on the inside, Faith and Dylan are still fighting on the outside. In a series of hair-raising battles, the second pulses duel it out, only to raise the body count on both sides. During the battles, Faith and Dylan discover an even great strength: the power of their combined love. Together, Faith and Dylan might just be able to save the world with a quake that is big enough to change the course of history.

Quake (Pulse, #3)(Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to HarperCollins and Edelweiss.)

Well, I didn’t really like the previous two books in this series, and I didn’t like this one either. I found it confusing, and I really did not get what was going on for 90% of the book.

“There. And stay on your side of the rig. Whatever you’re finding on that Ill-fated ear expedition is probably nuclear.”


“Stay on the water, it’s the safest place right now. At least if you crash you’ll hit the river.”
“IS it just me, or did he forget about drowning?”

Quite possibly.

“Did you roll around in the forest today? You smell awesome,”

And strangely enough, she actually meant that!

Apologies to HarperCollins and the author, this is one that I really should have read the first book prior to downloading this one! I really didn't get what was going on, and to be honest I didn't really care what happened to the characters at all.

  1. Sorry you did't enjoy this series. I liked it. Though I will agree it's a bit confusing at times.
