Review: Emergence: The Quantum Faith Series- Book Two by Carolyn Twede Frank

Emergence (Quantum Faith Effect #2)Emergence: The Quantum Faith Series Book Two by Carolyn Twede Frank

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Book Details: 
Things are just getting more complicated for Josh Sawyer …

He won the big debate with his teacher, and he’s just made it onto the high school basketball team. He thinks things are starting to smooth out in his life, but a mysterious pill bottle shows up in his locker, and something mysterious is going on in the school’s basement.

When his biology teacher begins bashing Josh’s newfound faith, he wants to find out for himself if God really exists. A few trips into the Literary Loom will help him with that—and hopefully, with a few other challenges that have popped up as well.

My Review:
Emergence is the second book in the Quantum Faith Effect Series. I really liked book one and the unique way that Josh Sawyer and his friends could travel through time by using a machine called The Loom. A book is downloaded into the Loom and you travel in the book playing the part of one of the book's characters.

Book two has Josh and his friend Ester doing more traveling through the pages of history, This time Josh is wanting to find about whether there is really a God out there somewhere. As he deals with a hostile basketball coach/science teacher who teaches only about Darwinism, his friend Ester who he'd like to date but is too shy to ask her out, and his mother's failing health, leads to a hard beginning of the new school year for Josh. There are many ideas brought out in this book that makes you think about life, and what's really out there in the universe. The story sometimes slows down while Josh and his friends are in the Loom, but be patient as truths are revealed to them.

Josh and his friends ban together to find out the truth, expose illegal things happening at the school and support one another through painful family happenings. This is a book that parents and teens will read and then want to discuss about later. Emergence is a great blend of history, action and scientific thought. 

I will be reviewing book three in the series, Remembrance, next week. Come back to read what I think about the final book in the trilogy.
