Review # 98: Pulse- HJ Daly

Summary: 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?

Title: Pulse
Author: HJ Daly
Pages: 310
Rating: 3/5 Stars
Review: I received this book for free from the author in exchange for an honest review. This is the debut novel bu HJ Daley, and I can't lie, I had a really hard time with it. Also I'm finding it hard to write this review. I found this book okay. When I was finished I wasn't moved by the book, I actually felt relieved that I had finished it at all. I found the book to be jumpy, which made it confusing for me. I would be reading and all of a sudden I thought I had missed pages but I hadn't. I also wanted to learn more about the Pulse but that information never came. 
I found that there were way to many characters to keep track of. I couldn't relate to any of the characters, and I felt like I was missing out on their stories. I want to know more about them and how they came to be where they are now. 
I probably won't be continuing with this series but maybe if the author writes a different one, I will give it a go. But I would still recommend this series to fantasy lovers.
