As mentioned in my title, this was a Hollywood movie type of book. I mean that in both the good and the bad. In the good, this was a fast-paced no-holds-barred type of a book that really went high-octane with the action. The bad was that there was a lot of typical “cutesy” stereotypes along with some of the typical action-movie “I fall in love with everyone I see”.
Wave of Terror follows an astronomer, Megan, who is searching for Planet 9 (not Pluto). She is given access to an incredibly accurate telescope in the Canary Island. When searching she realizes that things aren’t exactly as they seem. She happens to trip into a terrorist plot that no one in the United States seems to believe.
This was definitely a book that I would enjoy as a movie. I think that they could do a lot with this plot and it almost feels like Jefferson wrote it in a way that it could be easily turned into one. The dialogue is well thought out and funny (especially later in the book). The interaction between Megan and Chip was definitely memorable and full of movie quotes. Those parts definitely made me chuckle while reading.
The story itself felt… plausible. It didn’t seem super far-fetched but it wasn’t totally like “oh god this definitely could happen”. Though that being said – it was a unique and different approach to the terrorists trying to take down America. It was something that I didn’t think of before and it wasn’t as far-fetched as the movie “Geo-Storm” for example (which, I did enjoy more than most people).
The narration for Wave of Terror was done by Amy Landon – I’ve never listened to her narration before but she made this book a breeze to listen to. I thought she added some nice drama where needed without taking away from the storytelling aspect.
Overall, Wave of Terror was a fun “lose yourself” kind of book. It definitely was an easy read that was full of international intrigue and fun action.
