A dormant gene awakens in a quarter of the world's population and the effects are apocalyptic. With an even rarer gene, the life of Valerie Russell turns into a shocking race against time.

When the human body begins to require more electricity than needed to keep a heart beating, cars lose power, phones no longer function, and planes fall from the sky.

Stranded in southern Colorado, a hundred miles from home--and from her two-year-old son-- Valerie must find it within herself to trek the distance with the help of a questionable assembly of ex-military friends of the family.

This sounds very interesting. I like wondering how I would handle a situation like this.

I liked the post. It is sure an intriguing premise.

I am a fan of dystopian fiction. I just can't get enough of
it. Which, considering my passion is researching and writing
about family history, I admit that this is an odd match...a
person who lives in the past who enjoys contemplating future
apocalyptic scenarios.

After reading the synopsis for the book, Apparent Power, I
was intrigued. Most dystopian fiction is told from the
teenager/young adult point-of-view. As such, these tales are
often focus on the protagonist's experiences with little to
no consideration of other's viewpoints. But what if the main
character is a mother? Suddenly, the story shifts to a more
inclusive viewpoint. Not only is the main character concerned
about herself, she also has children to consider.

Wow. I am intrigue. A different type and if I do not win a copy I will definitely buy one. I give honest reviews on goodread, amazon and freshfiction. I like a good strong woman hero and she already sounds interesting from what I have read.

I love stories with smart, strong women and this sounds
like fun
