Genre: Thriller/Suspense
Format: Ebook/Paperback/Hardcover/Audio

A team of neuroscientists uncover amazing new capabilities in the brain that may steer human evolution toward miraculous and deadly frontiers in this spectacular debut work of speculative science fiction—Limitless meets James Rollins—that combines spirituality and science in an inventive, mind-blowing fashion.

For decades, scientists have speculated about the untapped potential of the human brain. Now, neuroscientist Chuck Brenton has made an astonishing breakthrough. He has discovered the key—the crucial combination of practice and conditioning—to access the incredible power dormant in ninety percent of our brains. Applying his methods to test subjects, he has stimulated abilities that elevate brain function to seemingly “godlike” levels.

These extraordinary abilities can transform the world, replacing fear and suffering with tranquility and stability. But in an age of increasing militarization, corporate exploitation, and explosive technological discovery, a group of influential power brokers are determined to control Brenton’s new superbeings for their own manipulative ends—and their motives may be far from peaceful.

 My Review

What a brilliant debut! The author takes a hypothetical question of what if we could access more than 10 % of our brain and turns it into what could easily be accepted as reality instead of fiction.

It was not hard to suspend my belief as is sometimes the case with ‘far out’ theories. I totally bought it. The information seems so plausible that one can’t help but wonder if there are people out there capable of creating Zeta waves. It is both riveting and scary at the same time. Imagine what could be achieved if it were possible to tap into the full potential of the brain! But also imagine the ways in which it could be used for destruction!

The characters are well-developed, interesting and memorable. The plot is fast-paced and filled with twists and incredible theories which serve to draw you into the story and force you to think outside the box. There was literally never a dull moment.

The God Wave was more than just a techno/sci-fi thriller. It was also a lesson in human nature and how easily power corrupts. It is a real page-turner, full of mind-blowing theories, hypnotic in its ability to keep the reader engaged, and forcing the reader to imagine the seemingly impossible as being probable.  I highly recommend it to anyone who loves a good read thought-provoking read.
