My Review

What a strange book. But could it happen? The power goes out. They get snowed in the house. How will they survive for a long time? 
The book has different characters telling their versions of what is happening. Everyone story is a little different. 
All of sudden one day nothing will work. No electricity, cars won’t start. It is freezing. Eventually, they will run out of food. What will they do? They use horses to get around but wasn’t the best. Read the book to see what happens. 

I received an advanced copy of the book from the publisher through Celebrate Lit. I was not required to write a positive review.

More from Linore

When my sweet historical romance series was published, I never dreamed my next would be YA/dystopian. What a switch in genres! So, how did I go from one end of the writing spectrum to another? Blame it on an idea that refused to die. I read a headline about how close the earth came to suffering a catastrophic electromagnetic pulse, or EMP, in 2012. We missed the worst effects of a solar flare by a hair (in space terms); but the “what if” factor had been set in motion. What if that flare hadn’t missed us? What if I was a teen raised on electronics–or an adult medically dependent on them–and it all went dead in a matter of seconds? What if the next flare doesn’t miss? PULSE, the first book in my PULSE EFFEX Series, was born.

The books shows life in the aftermath of such an event for three teens and their families. With the world plunged into a new dark age, can they keep hope alive?
