Tremor (Pulse #2) by Patrick Carman

Blurb (from Goodreads):
In the year 2051, some people have a second pulse… Like all who have “the pulse,” Faith Daniels and Dylan Gilmore have telekinetic powers—they can move objects with their minds. But there are five “second pulses” in the world who have an even greater power: Almost nothing can harm them. They are virtually indestructible. Both Faith and Dylan have the second pulse. But the other side has second pulses, too, and they’ve been training for a war that has been brewing their entire lives. As Dylan executes a plan to infiltrate enemy grounds, he’ll have to face his only weakness, and a family secret that will threaten his very existence. Together, Faith and Dylan are the only hope this world has left, but they must go their separate ways in order to accomplish their plan. Will their love survive? With richly developed characters and heart-pounding action scenes, the second book in Patrick Carman’s Pulse trilogy continues the electrifying dystopian story of love and revenge.

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Tremor (Pulse, #2)Oh dear. I really didn’t enjoy this book, and I’m not looking forward to the third one. At first I was pretty ambivalent, I didn’t care about the characters, I didn’t care what happened to them, but there was nothing really offensive happening. If anything I was just confused, as I really didn’t understand what was happening.
Then I started to get quite annoyed and bored.
Prisons being lifted into the air, the throwing around of washing machines and train cars with just their minds, random air attacks, and other such rubbish just irritated me.

"Clooger, stay low, Airspace is crawling with drones. Must be thirty of them now. They're on to us."

Sounds like Top Gun but it really isn't. Give me Tom Cruise any day over this.
