Description

"Patrick Hemstreet's 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 can't 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. Don't mess with the Zetas!" -Sylvain Neuvel, author of Sleeping Giants 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.
