About The God Wave
Patrick Hemstreets debut, THE GOD WAVE**, is a bombshell of a thriller full of everything I love: complicated characters, dynamic plotting, all set against a backdrop of a fantastic scientific premise. Here is a novel that demands to be read in one sitting, while leaving a lasting impact afterward. And with more of this world to come, I cant wait to read what happens next. James Rollins, #1** New York Times bestseller of The Bone Labyrinth
****The God Wave is a mind-twisting what if? story with some crazy cool science and true-to-life characters you can't help but root for. It feels like those vivid dreams where everything is normal except you can do this one thing other people can't. A fun and disturbingly believable foray into the paranormal.

The God Wave Review
When I read the back cover about the genetic advancements in telepathy and how that could change our world, I thought this book is exactly what I want to read. Checking out the authors background made me even more excited because the book to come would have authentic scientific reasoning behind the advancements. The first third of the book reinforced these hopeful predictions. The gamma waves, zeta waves, and how each experimental lab rat developed their powers was fascinating science. I loved the idea of how they could build a company with this advancement, and which industries theyd serve first. While I enjoyed the book from there to the end, theres something about the direction that left me disappointed. It started to feel like too much science, and as we passed the halfway point and well into the second half and still more discussions of the technology, I began to lose interest. The action at the end was very cool, but I dont think theres really a character in here that I left feeling emotionally impacted by. This was disappointing because the technology and potential for how that would shape society is really exciting story fodder, it just turned out that the story might have taken too much time on the technology development and not enough exploration for my expectations. I listened to the audiobook, produced by HarperAudio and Nick Podehl, and thought the narrator did an excellent job. Very professional delivery that did everything possible to enhance to experience. Im already a fan of his from his work on the Apocalypse Z series, so it was great to hear him again.
