An unlikely heroine at age twenty-two, Emily Cricket Hastings is thrust into the role of guardian, defender and revenger for those being preyed upon by the roving anarchists overrunning her world and threatening the people she loves. The handsome and headstrong daughter of local police chief and pilot Paul Hastings, Cricket is just as adapt handling firearms as she is maneuvering her vintage ’67 Barracuda muscle car or manning the cockpit of a WW-II fighter plane as she races to annihilate the invading thugs.
It soon becomes apparent that a sizeable army of the lawless marauders are being controlled by a charismatic but psychotic woman known as “The Brazilian.” Stunningly beautiful but masterfully manipulative, the Brazilian controls her outcast minions with equal measure of designer drugs and fear in her quest to impose her own pseudo New Age Goddess world order.
Cricket quickly finds herself teamed up with courageous friends and companions joined along the way, fighting to protect those she loves and to safeguard the vulnerable people in her midst from the Brazilian’s rogue armies of evil that roam the streets and ravage their once peaceful community. As Cricket becomes an increasingly dangerous threat to the Brazilian, she contrives to either seduce Cricket into submission or alternatively to break her spirit.
This gripping adventure will keep you racing through the pages to see whether it's the Brazilian or Cricket and her companions who emerge from the battle and exit in victory on the other side. Author Fred Tribuzzo’s
first book in the series, Pulse of the Goddess: The American Blackout, delivers an unpredictable thrill-ride, that leaves us to anxiously await the next episode in the exploits of Emily Cricket Hastings.
I did feel, however, that more build up to the apocalypse and the apocalypse itself could have enhanced the sense of urgency to get rid of the savages. This may have helped the feeling that the characters were always running to or from somethig.
It looks like we are going to hear more about and from this upcoming author. I look forward to reading more of his books.
The book is set in Northeast Ohio, more specifically, Cleveland. The majority of the plot occurs in the small town of Little Falls and at a place called "the ledges". As a result of a solar storm and an EMP attack, anything and everything digital, was wiped out in most of North America. This included jet engines, most cars and anything from laptops to cell phones. People didn't have any electricity, there was little to no food, nor any water or medicine. Gang members and criminals were taking control of the cities and aimed to kill anyone that got in their way. It was later revealed that they were lead by a woman known as the "Brazilian".
The heroine of the story is named Emily "Cricket" Hastings. She is a very colorful character that I would describe as a real "Badass"! She drives a '67 Plymouth Barracuda, which somehow has survived the blast. Throughout the book, she and her family and friends are determined to gain back the cities that are being attacked by the undesirables.
The description that Tribuzzo gave of the fighter planes that were used for searching and battling the enemy, allowed me to vividly visualize the movement of each one. I even felt as though I was sitting right in the cockpit!
This novel is an emotional rollercoaster from beginning to end. I enjoyed reading it and I am looking forward to reading more of his work in the near future.
