Overall, I really enjoyed this novel. It was fast paced, action filled and original. The story follows Rowan Platts, who gets the opportunity to work on a top secret project alongside one of her idols; Margot Miller. But Rowan finds herself out of her depth when the top secret subjects turns out to a boy with a taste for human blood.
The story certainly gets off to a quick start, you get to the action right away. Personally, I prefer books who build up to the action a bit slower so we can get to know the character better. I felt like I didn’t know her very well, but as the novel carried on I got to know her very well. She a determined, brave and feisty little thing and I really enjoyed taking this journey with her. The story, I felt, was very well thought out and planned and I couldn’t find any holes in it.
Strangely, I also had the same problem with the ending as I did with the beginning. I thought the ending happened very quickly and I did find myself getting a bit confused with what was going on. A lot happened. However, I could see it playing out like a movie in my head and to me, that’s a sign of a good story.
Once I got into the novel, I couldn’t put it down. I was so swept up in her world and everything that was going on and I couldn’t get enough of it. I ended up reading it a lot faster than I thought I would. One thing that I was slightly put off by was the fact that the word ‘monster’ was used an awful lot.
It’s been a long time since I’ve read anything paranormal, and I definitely wasn’t disappointed by Pulse. I would happily reread it again, simple because I couldn’t get enough of the characters!
