I received this book as a review copy for free, in return for an honest review.
When Maya and Carlos accidentally discover a new phenomenon by a pond in their sleepy southern town, their actions set off a chain of events that take them away from their families and friends forever. At the same time, David, caught in a trance-like state, releases a bomb into unsuspecting civilians. When the group finally meet up, they realise that they are inextricably linked and cannot be parted.
This book begins at a steady pace, but when the action begins, it snowballs and creates a nail-bitingly tense read. You can feel David’s anguish when he realises what he has done, and his pain when his son becomes a victim of the phenomenon.
When Shannon enters the story, the reader puts high hopes on her saving the group, but a sneaky little twist to the plot takes place and the mystery just thickens.
The story is a good addition to the science fiction genre and is well-written. The ending prepares you for book two in the series.
