Apocalyptic Fiction Review: Resonance by A.J. Scudiere

Resonance by A.J. Scudiere


freebie

Synopsis from Goodreads
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. 
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 in the problems today is that each is occurring in a ‘hotspot’ - a pocket of reverse polarity tells them all the shift is already here.

I'm actually really surprised that A.J.Scudiere is such an underrated author because she writes amazing books. God's Eye was one of my favourite reads of 2012, and Resonance is not that far behind.



This is a disaster scenario book, very intense, full of interesting multifaceted characters who end up racing together to save humanity facing an apocalyptic catastrophe - global reversing of polarity.

Not only the plot is tightly packed with action, it's full of personal stories and tragedies, feelings and challenges, and in the end the author manages to surprise the heck out of a reader with a unique supernatural solution to the problem. You really just don't expect it.

A.J. writes about human nature, everything else is just a background. The most important thing is people and how they change in face of adversity. For anyone who love disaster scenarios and apocalyptic fiction, - this book is for you.

Если вы влюблены в литературу о мировых катастрофах и все планетарных концах света, - эта книга для вас.

Скудиер - малоизвестный автор, но её первая книга Глаз Бога оказалась одной из лучших, прочитанных мной в 2012 году. Она мистична, серьёзна и задаётся вопросом о глубине нашей человечности, самопожертвовании и как далеко мы можем пойти если только перестанем слушать своё эго.

Резонанс - книга жёсткая, мрачная с очень интенсивным ритмом и большим количеством мультифасетных характеров. Сюжет захватывает и не отпускает до самого конца, который оказывается совершенно неожиданно паранормальным. Очень советую.

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
