There needs to be more books like this. Intense and satisfying, Pulse brings a whole new card game to the table!The best part I love about Pulse is the first two pages in the book. It's started off like the opening of a Stephen King novel, playing like a movie in my mind. It's mysterious yet caught my attention right away, never wavering from the moment. This has got to be the best opening that I have ever read in a book. It hooked me, keeping my eyes glued to the paper.The plot itself does slow down a bit but it gives the reader time to catch up on what is happening in the now. I love that the author slowly work the reader down from the intense high from the beginning to allowing the reader to put the pieces together. Each chapter discloses more characters as well as more secrets as what part Faith plays.There is types of love interest in the book. The beginning of a great, loyal friendship and a pure love. The friendship came like a surprise. I like the role this boy played. He is truly her friend and is always there for her. He helps her in what ever possible and vice versa. The pure love starts off a little fast for me. The meet but have very little time to know each other. Not to mention the fact that he is a liar. *scowl* Nonetheless, she falls for him. I'm hoping in the next book there will be more friendship to their instalove.Pulse is am impressive story that captures the reader from the start. It brilliantly creates a world so different you can't help but dive right in. Exciting and out of the box, Pulse is awesome!
