Resonance... a book review


Book Title: Resonance
Author: A. J. Scudiere
Publisher: Griffyn Ink
ISBN: 0979931003

Disclaimer:  This is NOT a Christian book.  Contains mild language and one sexual situation. Book Description:

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 SuperAIDS. 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 L.A. 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 them all the shift is already here.

Just as the above description leaves you scratching your head, so will the beginning chapters of this book.  Many characters are introduced with no real connection among any of them.  What does a biologist, geologist, and two medical doctors from the CDC have in common?  As the story progresses, the links between the main characters slowly becomes apparent. 

Geologist... the polarity of the earth
Biologist... animal species mutating and/or dying off
Medical doctors... diagnosing the odd symptoms which are cropping up worldwide

I enjoyed the premise of this book - new and refreshing.  Once the confusion cleared up, the characters were well written.  The twists and turns of the plot kept me wondering what was going to happen next. 

My rating: 2.5 stars out of 5

I received a complimentary copy of the ebook from Griffyn Ink via NetGalley for my honest review.
