I had high hopes for this book based on the cover preview, but it didn't completely live up to my hope. I love the premise: the pole are shifting and people are getting sick. It seemed very realistic, but then something happened it became a bit too hokey for me to swallow. What became the most difficult for me to appreciate was when characters started to die, but then were talking and interacting in the next chapter. I'm not sure if this is supposed to be realistic or not.

The book is about different groups of scientists and doctors who are trying to figure out when animals are behaving in unusual ways and why people who seem healthy are dying in surprising ways. The scientists and doctors come together in their search for the answer and they discover that there are magnetic hotspots where the strange events are occuring. They call these "shifts" and they all try to figure out why people are affected differently during the shifts.

I enjoyed watching the relationship between Jordan and Jillian unfold. I think the relationship with David and Jillian was more forced and that Scudiere really told about this relationship rather than showing the development of the relationship between Jordan and Jillian.
