The Pulse (Geostorm #2)
Life on Earth hangs in the balance, and only a handful of people realize it.Until the first Geostorm hits Europe.As the poles shift, the planet's magnetic field weakens, stripping away our protection from the Sun's power.That which gives us life, can take it away as well. "With his 40th novel, Bobby Akart turns the world upside down again!"International bestselling author Bobby Akart delivers pulse-pounding thrills in The Geostorm Series , the story of a planet-changing phenomenon, a natural disaster brought about by the Earth itself."The Geostorm series comes out of the gate at full pace and action to let the reader know that this book will be filled with things that you can't unsee and leave you with that "look over your shoulder" feeling." For eons, since the formation of our planet, Earth's magnetic poles have reversed. Powered by the machinations of her spinning iron core, coupled with the hot liquid that has churned around it since the planet's infancy, this geologic wonder has been occurring without much fanfare, until now.A geomagnetic apocalypse is descending upon humanity. It's a catastrophic event caused by the Earth's magnetic field growing restless. And now, the changes are accelerating at an astonishing rate. What happens when the magnetic field grows weaker? There will be deadly consequences for all of humanity. The change in the world's climate and the geological impact could alter the face of the planet as we know it. And the Sun, our beloved star that gives us life, can also wreak havoc, ending life on Earth as we know it. "Polar shifts, GPS navigation issues, strange animal behaviors and even stranger weather, and scientists unwilling to move off the popular narrative all combined and masterfully crafted in Mr. Akart's engaging storytelling style." The European continent has been besieged by a geomagnetic storm, one that ordinarily would cause minor disruptions in communications and GPS devices, but because of the weakened magnetic field, has destroyed power grids.The world is playing a deadly game of Russian roulette with the Sun as the magnetic field weakens. Which part of our planet will be hit next? Follow the story of the Squire and Sarah Boone family, Indiana farmers and their children who battle Mother Nature, her animals, and their fellow man, in The Pulse. "Wow, I didn't see this coming! The type of book an adrenaline junkie loves!"

    Book #2 takes off like the proverbial rocket! As the shift begins, the effects and affects it has had on not only the Boone family, but it gives a strong sense as to what the rest of "us" will be experiencing. From Sarah and Carly at Walmart to Levi struggling to survive a plane crash in Canada, to Kristy in the Chicago Zoo. Some hard choices are being made and harder ones yet to come for all! The book rotates from one group of the characters to the next very smoothly and you don't feel for one Book #2 takes off like the proverbial rocket!

From Sarah and Carly at Walmart to Levi struggling to survive a plane crash in Canada, to Kristy in the Chicago Zoo. Some hard choices are being made and harder ones yet to come for all! The book rotates from one group of the characters to the next very smoothly and you don't feel for one second that you are losing your place or the flow of the stories. As with most of my reviews of Bobby's books, I'll ask the questions! With literal death surrounding him at times, how will Levi make it out of his own personal frozen hell ? Kristy and her co-worker(or is he?? hmm), with the animals losing control and having been set free by the whacko environmentalists, will they maintain some semblance of order before being forced to flee ? In a large urban jungle with altered wild animals running wild, can they get out safely ? For the Boone's who are home, so much to prepare for, worry about family, dealing with the ever present anxiety known as Bully Billy, will they be able to prep their homestead and be able to gather the family together to not only survive, but thrive ? I read this installment in one day and am very much looking forward to the next. Bobby Akart spins a masterful tale of action, end of the world theatre and characters that are so in-depth, you can't help but become attached.

    As Squire and Sarah Boone began to realize that something unbelievable is happening Sarah takes charge and with the help of her daughter -in-law Carly she begins to prepare for what is coming, and a daunting task it will be. She not only faces crowds of scared people but the family of Bully Billy Clark while attempting to prepare for the inevitable.While Sarah and Carly prepare at home their children are facing even greater trials as they attempt to return to the place the Boone’s call home.

She not only faces crowds of scared people but the family of Bully Billy Clark while attempting to prepare for the inevitable.While Sarah and Carly prepare at home their children are facing even greater trials as they attempt to return to the place the Boone’s call home. Chapman and his new love Isabella are flying from France to America as the world is plunged into chaos and darkness due to the polar shift that few understand or believe in. Thanks to Chapman’s knowledge of what is happening they have some idea of what they must do.Levi, Carly’s husband and his two friends Karl and Eddie have crashed in the wilds of Canada. After the plane crashed, killing the pilot and injuring Eddie severely and leaving Levi and Karl to care for Eddie as well attempting to find out where they are and which way to go for help. As they will quickly learn the wild is not friendly or hospitable and death will become a dreaded companion on their attempt to get home.Kristi Boone and her new friend Tommy Bannon are facing their own wild kingdom in the Brookfield Zoo in Chicago. Animals are being set free by environmentalists who think they are freeing the animals that are being held, not realizing that the freedom will only cause terrible death for the human race as well as the animals that have no idea how to survive on their own and in a world that is not hospitable to man or beast.Bobby Akart takes us on another wild ride as he educates us on what a polar shift is as well as the dire outcome that it could mean for mankind. This would not be the first time a polar shift has occurred and as we find out it could easily be the end of the world as we know it. Most importantly Bobby Akart keeps us turning pages until we get to the cliff hanger that will make us beg for the next installment. He continues to retain the title of King of TEOTWAWKI!!!!

Be it a pandemic, a CME or as in the case of his newest series, apolar shift. He does write some scary stuff! The type of things that scare the living daylights outof you! The things that we have no control over. The things that Mr. Akart gives us informationabout and helpful ideas that might help us survive if at all possible.Bobby Akart has outdone himself with this new series. As with most of his books, I am filled withanxiety as I turn each page and the anticipation builds inside of me. NO ONE is safe in hisbooks! Nope! You never get too attached to a character because they just might not make it tothe next chapter but I will say this, the characters are so likeable and relatable...well most ofthem are but there are those that you would just like to throttle and there are quite a few in thisbook that a good swift kick is called for!I absolutely enjoyed this story! Written with in depth research to back his findings, Mr. Akarttakes us on a journey from California to France, from Chicago to Indiana all while the shtfbegins.While some poo-poo the idea of getting prepped, others are frantically trying to prepare for theworst and some just want to cause havoc for those who just want to try and survive.Yes, Geostorm The Pulse will have you gripping your book tightly, it will have your palmssweating, it will give you a sense of doom and all the while entertain you. Thank you Bobby for agreat addition to this remarkable series.

    I can't wait until the next book! Book three continues the saga of the Boone family. Things I liked: The tenacity of the Boone family. Family comes first. Strong work ethic. Adventurous. I also like the different subplots within the story and knowing they will all come together but when and how is what makes the book fun to read. As soon as you think you know what is happening...poof! the author spins you around and you are off in another direction. Example: Levi's adventure. Who would have I can't wait until the next book!

My opinion and this is on me. Fellow readers you may not agree with me but that's okay. ....: I think Kristi and Tommy are just as fanatical as Jerry Watson and ALF. I feel Kristi has tunnel vision. But I know she will see the light and get with the program. Fav quotes:**(Chapman) He now had a full understanding of why Harley riders walked into a gas station like they had a severe case of diaper rash.**'Carly, a petite brunette who could roar like a lion and fight like a tiger...' "......you might consider repositioning the nation’s military assets.” “Why?” asked the president. “Um, sir, to deal with the, you know, aftermath.” “Aftermath of what?” “The potential damage caused to our infrastructure by the geomagnetic storm.” The president rubbed his temples. This had all been thrust upon him so quickly. He was furious with previous presidents and Congress for not establishing an action plan to deal with a catastrophic event like this one. "

    Don’t Waste Your Time or MoneyI purchased this book because of the reviews then realized it was the second volume in a series and not the first so I ordered the first volume as well. What a mistake and what a waste of money and valuable reading time. By the end of this volume I couldn’t wait to be finished with it. I have no idea why this author is supposedly so popular — these books are just TERRIBLE.

I have no idea why this author is supposedly so popular — these books are just TERRIBLE. I’m a real fan of dystopian story telling and have gobbled my way through the genre over the years. This series (and I assume the others by this author as well) are just dreadful. The characters have no depth and are poorly developed and there is no real story — instead the author fills pages with information to beat the reader over the head about how he did some research then repeats the same information over and over again just to fill pages with words. The contents of the first two books shouldn’t have filled more than a third of one volume, instead he just drags each volume out for no reason and with no real character or story development. I hate authors like this who take the contents of a single novel and turn it into 6 volumes just to pick your pockets. Well I gave up. Not only will I not finish this series, I won’t purchase anything else from this author either. There are plenty of good TEOTWAWKI authors out there with plenty to teach in the process, but this isn’t one of them.

Some are coming to believe that the magnetic poles were preparing to flip, a process that ordinarily takes thousands of years but occasionally happens in a lifetime's span.The author has researched his subject carefully and the science is solid and current. Frightening though the subject is, it's the characters that drive this story. Bobby has given his Boones and Chapmans personalities colored with the essence of pioneer spirit and methodical investigation. Every emotion is at play here and survival depends on preparation and the willingness to act when called upon.I'm thoroughly enjoying this series and can't wait for the next book. This is a GREAT read!

    Once again a great cast of characters and kinks in story!Oh, the story keeps on and it’s so good. The kinks, just when I knew what would happen with the wolves - Oh my! And I just knew what was going to happen next, and I was surprised. And the dreadful folks in the small town, at least one has some good sense. The action, WOW! Now, here I sit turning the page, and I ran out of book. So sad. Can’t wait for the Audible so I can hear it too. I highly recommend book 1 and this book 2.

The characters are incredibly well-developed and their situations well-described. The science sprinkled into the story presents alarming real-life concerns.

    The Boones are scattered and each are having problems with this developing nightmare. The world is starting to collapse as the storms are getting worse and the animals affected have become deadly. I love that parts of Canada are written into this awesome tale as I'm a Canadian and can picture what is happening to Levi and friends....beautiful scenery with harsh conditions. Looking forward to the next book in this brilliant series.

    Fantastic series about a very possible scenario. The poles are in fact in excursion right now. The likelihood of a polar flip in the very near future is high. Some say it will only mean our compasses will be backward, but let's be honest, any change in the EM field around Earth is going to have some bad consequences. This series takes a look at some of likely effects stated by top scientists in the field and wraps it all in an enthralling narrative.

    Will it happen? When will it happen?This is the third book in the Geostorm series. It's a good plot but I don't like the abrupt endings. I know that the author takes care to get the science of his scenarios correct so, I feel I can take them as gospel, mostly. Of course some things are built up for effect but the basics, like the birds and the headaches, are true. I hope that Levi and Kristi make it back to the farm!

    Breath taking, heart racing and foretelling Bobby has done it again. This could be our future and it’s serious and it’s scary, as all get out. The way he shows ideas of how to prepare and the way the characters are portrayed will leave you mesmerized. You will not be able to set the book down and you’ll be counting down the days for the next book.

    Great series!I have read Akart's Yellowstone series, and this is another great read with realistic glimpses at individuals as event unfold. Well written with a lot of action, but backed with science and a sense of how people are effected locally and globally as they react to the natural threats.

    Geo storm seriesHe had a great premise, unfortunately his writing was subpar. It was hard to read and enjoy because he resorted to everyone in the story jumping up or shouting, the characters came across as rather stupid. I can not recommend these books to anyone who enjoys their book well written.
