Summary

Summary

Set in a cinematic world where telekinetic powers dominate, Quake is the pulse-pounding finale to an epic story of love and revenge for fans of I Am Number Four and The Maze Runner.

Faith and Dylan may have stopped the Quinns from destroying the Western State the last time but now the twins have joined forces with Hotspur Chance--the lethal mastermind behind Intels and pulses--and there's no telling what he is capable of now.

Caught in the middle of a deadly war, Faith and Dylan fight in hair-rising battles while their Intel friend Hawk works to discover the secrets of the States. But the answers Hawk finds are bigger and more mind-altering than anyone expected...and if Faith and Dylan want to finish what they started, they will need to harness their pulses in a way no one has ever done before. Can Faith and Dylan's love save the world with a quake that is big enough to change the course of history?

Booklist Review

Volume 3 of Carman's Pulse trilogy finds the earth in terrible jeopardy. Evil-genius Hotspur Chance, the smartest man in the world, has plans to eliminate millions of people in the West State, and Faith and Dylan are the only ones who can stop him. Both teens are second pulses: they are able to move almost anything with the power of their minds, including themselves (which means they can fly). In addition, they can deflect all things don't bother trying to shoot them; the bullets simply bounce off. Unfortunately, the evil twins Wade and Clara, who are working for Chance, have similar powers and are determined to stop our heroes. Can they? Blood will be shed, mayhem will be visited, and disbelief will be necessarily suspended before that question is answered. Style is not Carman's strong suit, but the plot is the focus here, and, though burdened by exposition at the outset, Quake soon picks up speed and will hold readers' attention to its satisfactory ending. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Carman's best-selling history should make this trilogy finale a hit even without the expected promo boost.--Cart, Michael Copyright 2015 Booklist
