Okay, this is a odd book to review; I started and stopped this book multiple times. In the beginning, it's part scifi, part dystopia, but all confusing. I get the story that is trying to be told, but the excursion of the details, and the important details at that, are missing in the final draft. Trust me, you are going to want to read this, but there should be a rewrite to finish off what one day will be a great book. ( )

This is the story of Robert Weller, a hardware store owner, who slips in the shower, ends up in the hospital and is now waking up at home on what should be a normal day. We quickly find out that this is anything but a normal day. Small clues tickle at Robert's mind including a sudden suspected power surge that takes out the TV and lights in the house with a bang.
We soon get the hint that Robert is not a normal guy, in fact the all american Colorado town seems to not be a normal town either. Why are people watching and following Robert? Why do they keep dying suddenly?
Sunny McMaster is wife to Daniel who has been missing for 2 years and she along with her military friends are organizing a search and rescue to find her husband who they believe was kidnapped for his psychic abilities. They are doing this without the military or US government approval.
They have gotten thier intel from a group of remote viewers. What are remote viewers? They are psychics that can see into the past and future to some extent but usually with somewhat cryptic details.
Sunny needs to find and bring Robert out of this isolated town so he can help her find Daniel without Robert being suspicious of her intentions. Sunny is able to contact Robert and that is when everything starts to go awry.
This is a very unique story that has technology that is not far fetched and exists to some extent, not counting the psychic abilities.
Very good story that kept my attention through the whole book. Ends with a open question suggesting possible sequels that I would likely read as well. ( )

It started out slow for me, but by the end I couldn't put in down. ( )

Brainstorm is a fast-paced sci-fi thriller that I couldn't put down! The plot revolves around the use of remote viewers and the development of psychic assassins by the evil Dr. Xiang. The who do you trust and what is real aspect of the story was as good as the nonstop action. ( )

BRAINSTORM--a Thriller Novel

Do You Know Who You Really Are?

: What if a small American town is secretly replicated, populated with kidnapped scientists and psychically talented civilians, and then used as a proving ground while training psychic assassins? Political and military leaders of the Free World are the targets of these psychic warriors, and Project Brainstorm's goal is world domination.

Gold Rush seems to be just another sleepy little Colorado community full of friendly, caring citizens, quaint cottages, and a sort of quiet peace, held gently by the picturesque mountains that surround it.

However, something isn't right in Gold Rush, and early on a Monday morning Robert Weller awakens with a cautioning and insuppressible voice inside his head. He soon finds a secret behind every door, a motive with every glance, and a lie beneath every spoken word. After meeting a strange but beautiful woman named Sunny who insists they were once lovers, people begin dropping dead around him without apparent cause. The world he thought he knew twists upside down as paramilitary teams hunt him, and his own wife and the people he considers friends turn against him.

Weller is thrown into the middle of a military mission to rescue thousands of the town's citizens from a plot to destroy the free world. In time, Weller discovers he was once the CIA's top remote viewer, and it's not just the bad guys who will lose if he survives another day.

Brainstorm goes beyond the bounds of ordinary reason. It blends the past (the CIA's "Project Stargate," a twenty-year exploration into remote viewing and psychic powers as background) with the present (incredible new developments in nonlethal weapons such as acoustic cannons, sticky foam, anti-traction substances, electromagnetic pulse devices, and infrared lasers). And it throws in a very sobering reminder; that there are still thousands of American MIAs from the Korean and Vietnam Wars.

If you enjoy best-selling action/adventure thriller authors like Don Winslow and Clive Cussler, as well as some of the best thrillers in eBooks by indie authors like John Locke and JA Konrath, you'll love Brainstorm.
