Pulse is full of action, heart-pounding adventure, great characters and relationships. Your pulse will quicken with each and every page of this creative and unique look at the future.
Pulse is full of action in the last quarter of so, almost non-existent adventure (unless you consider moving cups with your mind adventure), poor and mostly unlikable and under-developed characters and extremely unhealthy relationships. Your pulse will do nothing with each and every page - and this sentence is only here for the sole purpose of using the word 'pulse' in a blurb for Pulse - of this creative and unique look at the future.
Standing outside Faith's window at midnight wasn't something Hawk had planned to do.
"[...] Fans of The Hunger Games will devour it."
"The scariest of Carman's novel is how believable it all is."
Compulsively readable, with thrilling action scenes and a tender love story.
"When he turned to her, [Faith] wanted nothing more than to feel his lips on her own, to fix all the broken pieces of her life."
—Faith, ARC of Pulse by Patrick Carman, page 352
"[Dylan] needed [Faith] in order to keep breathing. Every day she was gone was like a death march, walking through the day in a fog, his heart heavy like the hammer."
—Dylan, ARC of Pulse by Patrick Carman, page 359
"If he'd been watching the hammer fly, he would have seen that it was about thirty feet from landing."
"If he could have seen outside the long line of windows of the classroom, Hawk would have noticed that [..]."
“In time someone would tell Faith Daniels the truth, but not yet. She wasn’t ready to know, but one day she would be told.”
“You can't be gone. I need you here, with me. What am I going to do without you?”
"Dylan needed Faith in order to keep breathing. Every day she was gone was like a death march, walking through the day in a fog, his heart heavy like the hammer."
“Find love, for love in a broken world will comfort you. Hold on to hope; it will sustain you. Have faith, for in the end it will save you.”
