Waiting on Wednesday [2]

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine that spotlights upcoming books we are looking forward to being released!

Here is my pick:

Title: Pulse (Pulse Trilogy #1)

Author: Patrick Carman

Expected publication date: February 26th, 2013

Publisher: Katherine Tegen Books

Length: 320 pages (Hardcover)

From Goodreads: 

From New York Times bestselling author Patrick Carman, a teen fantasy-adventure of epic proportions. In 2051, some teens have a “pulse,” the power to move objects with their minds. Compulsively readable, with thrilling action scenes and a tender love story.

The year is 2051, and the world is still recognizable. With the help of her mysterious classmate Dylan Gilmore, Faith Daniels discovers that she can move objects with her mind. This telekinetic ability is called a “pulse,” and Dylan has the talent, too.

In riveting action scenes, Faith demonstrates her ability to use her pulse against a group of telekinesis masters so powerful they will flatten their enemies by uprooting street lights, moving boulders, and changing the course of a hurtling hammer so that it becomes a deadly weapon. But even with great talent, the mind—and the heart—can be difficult to control. If Faith wants to join forces with Dylan and save the world, she’ll have to harness the power of both.

Patrick Carman’s Pulse trilogy is a stunning, action-filled triumph about the power of the mind—and the power of love.

Why am I waiting?

As usual, I would wait for the cover alone. It is fascinating, isn't it? I'm obsessed with it. Besides, I've heard a lot about this author I'd really like to give him a try by reading this trilogy, so I'm really looking forward for this one. The idea of mind powers has always interested me, so I can't wait.
