Editorial Reviews

Review

"...a high octane race across the four corners of the Globe...I totally recommend this as a rip roaring YA sci fi thriller!" -Wistfulskimmie's Book Reviews

"Tate offers the perfect balance between older teen and new adult with this character. She's smart beyond belief, but she still has that naivety of inexperience that makes her believable." -Jennifer L. Oliver Book Blog

"...an incredibly fast-paced book, filled with enough scientific data to give the story credibility, and a 'villain' unlike any you've encountered before!"  -Goodreads.com

About the Author

Toby's stories have been praised by Midwest Book Review, Library Journal and Cemetery Dance as well as by New York Times bestselling authors Steve Berry, Douglas Preston, Jonathan Maberry and Steve Alten. He has been featured in The Big Thrill magazine and on Internet radio, blogs and newspapers.

Inexplicably drawn to all things dark and macabre, at about the age of twelve he began penning short stories and publishing his own movie monster magazine.

An Air Force brat who never lived in one place more than two years, after high school Toby did an eight-year stint in the U.S. Navy and ended up on the east coast. He has since worked as a cab driver, a pizza delivery man, a phone solicitor, a shipyard technician, a government contractor, a retail music salesman, a bookseller, a cell phone salesman and a recording studio engineer.

Toby later earned a B.A. in English and became a full-time graphic designer and newspaper reporter, publishing hundreds of stories with the Associated Press and his local paper. He has since been published in The Pedestal Magazine, Voluted Tales magazine, Famous Monsters of Filmland, Scary Monsters Magazine, and websites like eHow.com.

Owing to the inspiration of Edgar Rice Burroughs, Ray Bradbury and Stephen King, Toby became an author of what he likes to call "high-octane sci-fi, fantasy and horror" and has published several books.

Toby is also a songwriter and musician and lives with his family near the Great Dismal Swamp in northeastern North Carolina.

I've read all of Toby Tate's horror/thriller books and just didn't know what to expect from this when he asked me to read and review it. I'm an old school SF fan. I prefer the 'classics'.

Well, Toby did not disappoint at all. His science was spot on. His fiction was exciting. His characters engaging. He reminded me somewhat of David Gerrold...and I consider that extremely high praise, indeed.

Chloe, as you saw from the description, is a genius 16 year old. Some may think because there is a 16 year old protagonist that this is a young adult book. I don't think so. Both my husband and I (that cute old couple) enjoyed the book and plan on reading as many as are up to this standard.

I suggest you buy and read this asap!

Title: God Particle: A Chloe Johansson Thriller by: Toby Tate
Format: PDF provided by author for review

Review: Adopted by scientific genius parents, Chloe herself is a prodigy and already enrolled in MIT by age 16. Though 16, Chloe is mature and a likeable character. While she lives in the States attending college, her parents live in Switzerland doing their various research projects. Her dad discovers a particle and invention that thrusts the family into a sci-fi drama and run for their lives. Her dad disappears and her best friend ends up pregnant.

The side plot of her best friend being pregnant sits stagnant until the end. Due to all the events between the start and finish of the novel, Chloe has matured and is able to offer more support to her best friend. Still, I felt this side plot was a little confusing in its role in the main story, though it does not take away from the fun of the story.

Chloe rushes back and forth between the U.S. and Switzerland. To find her dad, she connects herself to her dad's invention and to direct contact with the particle. There, she meets an entity named "Ben" who educates her about "Mal" who has entered our world to basically take it over. Ben hops a ride into Chloe's head while Mal travels the world causing havoc as he hops from one body to the next. The entities are able to transfer bodies merely by touch, and after one fumbled attempt at trying to catch Mal, the story rolls into a nonstop, time travelling adventure as everyone tries to stop Mals' nutty plan.

Fast paced with likeable characters, I finished this story in a few hours. The scientific sci-fi elements left me scratching my head, but the author ties them in enough to make sense to the reader.

I really liked this book. It had a great pace, interesting characters, and a plot with lots of twists.

Though the main character is only 16-years old, this isn't your typical YA novel. Chloe isn't side-tracked by boys, fashion and friends. Instead, she's got a plan, which includes passing her exams at MIT. That is until she learns her Dad is missing because he discovered something that could shatter the very foundations of science. Oh, and her best friend is pregnant, too. What's a girl to do in that situation? I'd have fallen to pieces, but Chloe's tough. Her mission: ace her exams and try to save the world.

Tate offers the perfect balance between older teen and new adult with this character. She's smart beyond belief, but she still has that naivety of inexperience that makes her believable.

The one thing I loved about this book was that I couldn't predict what would happen next. The storyline was compelling and unique. I enjoyed the science aspect just as much as I did the suspense of all the events taking place. There were just enough plot twists to keep me intrigued but not confused.

Tate's writing style was a bit different in this book than from his others. He used both a first person and a third person perspective. I admit, at first the shift caught me off guard but as I continued to read, the story flowed smooth and was well paced, especially in the second half.

I did receive an Advanced Reader Copy of this book in exchange for an honest review, but I'd gladly accept another from Mr. Tate as he continues to surprise me with his stories. He's definitely an author to keep your eye on.

This is the story of 16 year old Chloe. Whilst studying for her exams at MIT, she gets two phone calls that mean life will never be the same again. The first is from her best friend in Geneva telling her she is pregnant. The second, far more serious is her mother telling her her father has gone missing. Her father is an eminent physicist and has discovered something both dangerous and wonderful. Something many people would kill to get their hands on. Suddenly Chloe is launched into an adventure to find her father that will change her life forever....

At first glance I really thought this book would go straight over my head, despite being a YA novella. All the talk of Higgs bosons and Hadron Colliders had me wondering if I had made the right decision. Boy how wrong was I! This was a high octane race across the four corners of the Globe to stop the wrong people getting their hands on this amazing discovery. It was a thrilling ride and I thoroughly enjoyed every minute. Chloe is not your normal 16 year old heroine. She is smart, and funny and has her head screwed on right. Having read a previous books of Toby's, this was not what I was expecting! It made for a pleasant change and I totally recommend this as a rip roaring YA sci fi thriller!

I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
