Pulsefest turns out to be an unmitigated disaster. Instead of showcasing Pulse as a company and the progress its vast array of products has made for mankind, it has instead created a nightmare as millions become infected with a strange alien virus turning them into monsters overnight. The infestation spreads globally faster than the world's governments can cope and it is only a matter of time before the human race will be wiped out of existence. A few survivors take it upon themselves to find a solution to restore their planet but it is riddled with risks. They must find a colony hidden away in the desert where an outcast works at returning order to the system he created. Will E, Fytchy, and Trezor survive or is it already too late? Find out in B.A. Bellec's Pulse: Book Two.

The long-awaited sequel to B. A. Bellec's science fiction horror novel is finally out and I can say that the wait was worthwhile. Bellec picks up the storyline from where it left off as we are given an update on the present scenario in this story. He uses an entire chapter to give an impressively elaborate synopsis of the first book. This goes a long way in getting the reader situated into the story as the action from thereon is end-to-end stuff. Where there are new characters, he is quick to link their importance to the overall storyline with the use of flashbacks. I love the way he teases out the potential link between Magnus and Amber as the story progresses, keeping the reader guessing as to the extent of their importance in the bigger picture. Mark's introspection into how things got to where they are humanizes him in a manner that drama lovers will find quite interesting to follow. The best part of this novel is the way Bellec uses skillful and highly detailed storytelling to maintain the suspense from the start to the very last page. Pulse is an absolute masterpiece.
