If you liked Thirteen Days to Midnight, you’re going to love PULSE – here’s a brief description:
Everyone has a heartbeat. Few have the pulse.
With the help of her mysterious classmate Dylan Gilmore, Faith Daniels discovers she can move objects with her mind. This telekinesis ability is called a “pulse,” and Dylan has the talent, too.
Faith demonstrates her ability to use her pulse against a group of telekinesis masters who are so powerful they can flatten their enemies by uprooting streetlights, throwing cars, and changing the course of a hurtling hammer. But even with her unusual talent, the mind – and the heart – can be difficult to control. If Faith wants to join forces with Dylan and save the world, she’ll have to harness the power of both.
An action-filled saga about the power of the mind – and the power of love.
The PULSE trailer is live!
A little bit about the trailer…
You’ll see the two main characters – Faith Daniels and Dylan Gilmore – along with one of the Drifters in the story. You’ll also catch a glimpse of the Western State. Faith and Dylan are standing (and at the table) on top of an old Nordstrom, a building that’s been abandoned in the year 2051. We’ll see Faith move something with her mind for the first time. Soon she’ll be throwing cars and trees and houses. But even with all that power, she’ll need Dylan’s protection as her abilities grow. Thank you for watching, pre-ordering the book, passing the link to friends. It makes all the difference in the world at the launch of a new series. Enjoy! – PC

Gr 9 Up–A mix of dystopian, adventure, romance, and superhero origin tale, this book covers all the bases admirably as long as readers are able to suspend their disbelief. Faith Daniels lives in between the strictly government controlled Western and Eastern States, in a zone whose population is dwindling daily through the promised advantages of immigration to the west or east. She also has the Pulse. Dylan has been watching over Faith to find the right time to explain about the supernatural power of the rare few who have it. As events unfold, he is forced to reveal his secret and hers. Faith must adjust not only to her newfound powers but also come to terms with the loss of her parents and the unexpected murder of her best friend. All this must be done pronto, as the evil forces that wish to kill the duo and rule the world are gathering. Faith and Dylan find an ally in nerdy genius Hawk, who is able to hack into the tablets that control all communication and information. As Pulse comes to a close, the forces of good and evil face off for a showdown. Faith, Dylan, and Hawk await the chance to use their intellect and powers to save the world. Engrossing and suspense-filled, this book is sure to find an audience, and readers will eagerly await the sequel.–Cindy Wall, Southington Library & Museum, CT
I had the pleasure of interviewing Elizabeth Eulberg this week on the Intersect Podcast. Elizabeth’s lifelong love of music inspired “Take a Bow”. Although she didn’t attend a performing arts school, she is currently trying to make up for it in karaoke bars throughout the greater New York area. She is also the author of The Lonely Hearts Club (and a huge Beatles fan!) and Prom & Prejudice. She lives outside of Manhattan with her three guitars, two keyboards, and one drumstick.
