Quick Review: Resonance by A. J. Scudiere

From Amazon:
The shift is coming. Soon. Dr. David Carter knows this. However, he's a geologist, so 'soon' means anywhere from tomorrow to a thousand years from now. People are dying. Now. Drs. Jordan Abellard and Jillian Brookwood are standing at the edge of Super AIDS. Or are they? They won't be able to figure it out if they can t get some authorization signed--and soon. But they're peons and no one is paying attention.
Whole species died at the last polar shift, 65 million years ago. Right now Dr. Becky Sorenson has some seriously mutated frogs in her lab. In Los Angeles, Bees are making abnormal columns on the side of the freeways. In Georgia, birds are migrating out of season. It all makes a sick kind of sense when the doctors consider that the last magnetic shift is strangely coincidental to the dinosaur die-out. And the only similarity in the problems today is that each is occurring in a 'hotspot'--a pocket of reverse polarity tells them all the shift is already here.

My Review: 
I LOVE natural disaster type stories. I love movies like The Day After Tomorrow and Outbreak. Movies and books that are fiction but based on things that could happen, and might. These things are more terrifying then even my beloved Zombies, because they are plausible. So Resonance, is right up there with those stories in my views.

This is a fast paced story, that is terrifyingly laced with scientific facts and nail biting suspense all rolled into one! It thrilled and chilled me to the core to imagine the world that "The Shift" would bring! I could not put it down...okay well sleep was really the only reason I put it down, but it was very reluctantly! (And I'm a girl that loves her sleep!)

  1. Thank you so much for the review! I've enjoyed watching your 'pages read in Nov' meter climb. Then I had a chuckle that the last bump is because of my book.


Thanks for visiting!
