Review: Defiance

        Seven months ago an EMP knocked out the electric grid causing all technology to quit working. It was in the middle of winter leaving people to fight for their life. All of America was affected, along with parts of Canada. Cars would not work, computers and cell phones were down, and the food was running out.

        `Defiance` is a science fiction/mystery novel written by author L.R. Burkard. It is the third novel in the Pulse Effex series. There is a who's who at the beginning so if the reader hasn't read novels one and two they will be acquainted with the characters. Which I like because some series novels leave you hanging as the reader tries to figure out who is who.

        From the start of the novel, there was gripping suspense, good character development, and I was mesmerized by the writing. The overall question seems to be, `How can one still believe in God after seeing the devastation of so many people?` With faith, hope, and charity!

About the author:

Linore Rose Burkard wrote a trilogy of  regency romances for the Christian market before there were any regencies for the Christian market. Her books opened up the genre in the CBA. She also writes YA Suspense/Apocalyptic fiction as L.R. Burkard. Raised in NYC in a family of ten, she now lives in Ohio with her husband and five children. A longtime homes-schooling mom, she still schools her youngest daughter, preferably with coffee in one hand and her iPad in the other. Her latest PULSE EFFEX SERIES takes readers into a "chilling possible future for America, while affirming the power of faith in the darkest of times."

When an electromagnetic pulse takes down the electric grid of the nation, three teenage girls and their families struggle to survive.  In this heart-pounding vision of the future, most of the population doesn't survive.  Has the world collapsed forever? Who can survive when technology fails?  
In this action-packed sequel to PULSE, L.R.Burkard  takes readers on a spine-tingling journey into a landscape where teens shoulder rifles instead of school books, and where survival might mean becoming your own worst enemy.
In the electrifying conclusion to the PULSE EFFEX, readers take a fast-track journey to discover the fates of Sarah, Andrea, Lexie and their families. Against ever-increasing threats, resistance must give way to defiance. But can ordinary teens and their families withstand powerful forces and keep hope alive?

This is something that may happen. If it does then life as we know it will end for many years. It's frightening.

Have a fabulous day. ☺

Hi, I'm your neighbor over at #LMMLinkup this week, and I'm glad I stopped by! This sounds like a great novel. I am glad that the Science Fiction genre is opening up to Christian authors too. Those subjects can really cause us to open our hearts to look for hope from God!
