Review: Pulse by H.J. Daly
She looked into their non-existent faces and felt them smile in anticipation.
The light is fading fast and Esa must find shelter before the deviants come crawling out of the woodwork. From the moment she steps into the darkened room her life takes a terrifying turn and she is pulled away from her post apocalyptic world.
With a horde of goblins close on her heels, she enters a magical realm in search of answers. Why can she sense magic and why is a powerful sorcerer determined to end her life?
I received this book to give an honest review.
As I was reading some of the reviews, and a few made a mention of a post-apocalyptic or a dystopian world. I didn't get that feel with this book. It was just more of a fantasy maybe more back in the day type of book where you have elfs, and goblins, mages, swords.
The writing of the story was really good. The characters were done great.
Now Esa who is the main character, well she is a survivor of sorts. She always gets herself out of trouble. But I found at times her temper towards people was a bit uncalled for. I understand that she has went through a lot but still no need to be so mean towards a lot of people. And I do wonder what her age is exactly. I mean is she a teenager or an adult? It was never clear.
Thomas, well he is a character you know has a bit of a mystery to him and the mystery is never really told.
Rootu he is a spinner (though I am not sure exactly what that is) and he has his own magic and he is very outgoing! Very energetic even in the worse of times.
The author seemed to leave a bit of the ending open to maybe there could be another book? Not sure if she would do it, but I would like to know what happens to Thomas. Does Esa and Thomas see each other again? Do Esa work on her magic? There is so much more that could be told, that I can only hope.
Not only that does Esa ever find out about Flo?
I would have liked to learn what exactly is Pulse? There didn't seem to be much talk about it within the book.
If you enjoy books with magic, butt kicking, fantasy then this a book you would want to read.
