book synopsis

Galactus, France’s answer to SpaceX, has just launched a communications satellite into orbit, but the payload actually harbors a frightening weapon: a nuclear-triggered electromagnetic pulse.


When the satellite is in position, Galactus’s second-in-command, Dr. Nevaeh Patel, will have the power to lay waste to the world with an EMP. A former astronaut, Patel believes she is following the directions of the Numen, aliens who saved her life when she space-walked outside the International Space Station. She is convinced that with the Holy Grail, just discovered by the owner of Galactus—eccentric treasure hunter Jean-Pierre Broussard—she can be reunited with the Numen, change the world’s destiny, and become immortal with them.


The countdown has begun when Special Agents Nicholas Drummond and Michaela Caine are thrown into the pending disaster. They must stop the EMP that would wreak havoc on communication and electronic systems on Earth, resulting in chaos and anarchy.

My thoughts

rating: 4.5

Would I recommend this series: yes

Will I be reading any more of this series : yes

Would I read anything else by this author : yes

Would have given it 5 stars but it left some questions not answered , even though that happened it was a very good read, it pulled me into the story , made the story believe able, as well as the characters, in fact even though I give it a 4.5 rating , i would say that it is the best one so far of the the 2 I've read, and I will be picking up the rest of the series, in fact this series reminds me of my favorite series by James Rollins Sigma Force series in some ways, I do have to say that one of the character is just plain nuts , to the point that I would never be in a room with with her. With that said I would like to thank Netgalley for letting me read and review it exchange for my honest opinion.
