This summer, Marcie is spending time working at Angel Mounds, the archeological dig her mother heads, along with her brother, Eric, and his girlfriend, Renee. The dig is the site of an ancient indigenous civilization, and things immediately shift into the paranormal when Marcie and her teammates meet Lorraine and Zeke. The two mysterious dig assistants reveal their abilities to access the Universal Energy Field with their minds – something Marcie knows, only vaguely, that her brother has also had experience with. Marcie learns how our planet will disintegrate if action is not taken. She and her team must decide if they are brave enough to help Lorraine and Zeke in their plan to save Mother Earth, her resources, and her history. It looks like the summer just got a lot more interesting.
“[Catalyst is] based in present-time Earth dealing with the real issues we face while also exploring the possibilities of what and who might be out ‘there’ and what our relationship with them can be,” said Richardson. “It also explores our evolution as a species.”
Inspired by a desire to protect and sustain the planet, Richardson wrote Catalyst not only to entertain readers but to encourage them to think. “We can make the world a better place,” Richardson also said. “We don’t have to go with the status quo. Each and every one of us can be a catalyst for positive change.”
Hello and welcome to my stop on the Catalyst blog tour!!
Okay, before starting, I would like to stat a few things….I just finished Catalyst a few minutes ago because **nervous laughter** I can be quite a procrastinator.What I want to say is that my opinion may change after a while from now so maybe they will be an update to this review. * Note: It’s updated now!
Now, back to the review, I found this story interesting and I liked the topics it brought up. I liked reading the parts about the archaeological stuff and the history involved , it was really cool!!! I think the story lacked the depth that I was expecting, I think I was looking for some more action.
I’ve read it as a standalone, but there’s actually a book before this one which didn’t really affect my reading as it wasn’t essential to read in order to understand what’s going on.
The flow of the events wasn’t slow or boring for the most part, there were some chapters that were slightly boring for me, I think it was due to it being really packed with information that I couldn’t grasp at the same time. There were some parts when I didn’t have enough time to process what was going on.
Overall, I liked reading it and I would love to hear what you think of it.
