I admit it, I am a dork and like Science Fiction. It is actually kind of a new love and it came out of nowhere. I haven’t read too many science fiction books nor have I watched any science fiction television shows, so I don’t have much to go on. I just started to really get into sci-fi movies and watched to expand upon that. Well the book “Resonance” by A.J. Scudiere was a breathe of fresh air for me.
Now when I first received the book, I thought the cover looked a little cheesy and it was a huge book that I thought I would never finish. Well I was way off! I actually enjoyed this fiction title and kept on reading!
Resonance is a book told by the four main characters, so it jumps around a lot, and is about the magnetic poles shifting and the end of the world. It actually reminded me Dan Brown’s Deception Point with how it focused on science and suspense. Now I know end of the world books are usually crazy and unrealistic, but this book is fiction so it is told as a story. It did leave me thinking though, “What If?” I like books that make me think and contain lots of ideas and action.
Resonance left me wanting more and even though some parts were a little longer than they need to be, it was still a good, quick read for me. I would recommend this book to anyone looking for something different and it is a must read for science fiction lovers!
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. That means no one will notice a little forgery either, right?
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 among the problems today is that each is occurring in a ‘hotspot’ – a pocket of reversed polarity that tells them all
THE SHIFT IS ALREADY HERE.
As if you didn’t have enough to worry about in today’s world already, consider the fact that the Earth is long overdue for another magnetic shift. When the next shift happens (and recent findings suggest it can happen much more rapidly than previously believed), the fact that South is the new North will be the least of our problems. Mankind may, in fact, be lucky to survive it at all. No one really knows the extent of the problems caused by a magnetic shift, but A. J. Scudiere’s take on the possible effects and ramifications makes for fascinating reading. Resonance is an absorbing work of speculative science fiction filled with characters you’ll feel as if you’ve known for years. Scudiere is a wonderful storyteller, so potential readers should not worry about getting bogged down in a lot of technical mumbo-jumbo; Resonance is as reader-friendly a science fiction novel as you’re likely to find.
Scudiere can’t possibly explore all of the possible ramifications of a magnetic shift, but he does approach the subject from several different angles. As the early warning signs begin to appear, only geologist David Carter, having discovered what he believes to be a hotspot of reverse polarity, suspects that a shift is coming soon. On the biological side of things, Dr. Becky Sorensen discovers a group of frogs sporting four hind legs and orienting themselves in a way that reveals some kind of magnetic anomaly, as well as a species of birds manifesting a radical change in their migratory habits. Jordan Abellard and Jillian Brookwood, a couple of young medical school graduates just hired by the Centers of Disease Control, are at a loss to explain the nature and cause of an unknown illness claiming human lives in several localized areas. Not until these multiple investigations cross paths is the full nature of the problem made clear to all. The big question then becomes what to do, as many people exposed to the hotspots are slipping into comas and dying. Time is a luxury that the scientists and doctors do not enjoy, as the hotspots are spreading more and more rapidly, suggesting that the Shift could happen at any time…
