Tremor by Patrick Carman

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.

Tremor was an interesting sequel to Pulse. It had a little bit of everything: action, science fiction, and romance. I don’t usually like books that have romance in it, but the way Patrick Carman portrayed it was a way I enjoyed. I’d recommend it for eighth grade and up. People younger probably could read it, but you have to be a certain age to understand some of the character intricacies that he puts in the book. Boys and girls alike could and would enjoy this series. The series is about these people who have an ability called “The Pulse.” It takes place about fifty years in the future. When you think you’re ready, go find Pulse and prepare for one of the best books you’ll ever read.

This book hits shelves February of 2014!

  1. I haven't read any of Patrick Carman's books! I remember seeing Pulse around, and now the sequel is coming out! I'm glad that you enjoyed the romance in the book, and that it seems to appeal to a large and diverse audience. Hopefully, you enjoy the conclusion novel when it comes out, Ben! :)
