"The Tesla Gate" by John D. Mimms

The Tesla Gate
(The Tesla Gate Trilogy Book 1)
by John D. Mimms

This book blitz and giveaway for The Tesla Gate is brought to you by I Am A Reader, Not A Writer.

When a cosmic storm enters Earth’s atmosphere, scientists are baffled by its composition and origins, but not nearly as much as they are by the storm’s side effect – anyone who has died and chosen not to cross over is suddenly stranded here, visible, and can interact with the living.
With the world thrown into chaos, Thomas Pendleton is eager to make up for many broken promises to his six-year-old son, Seth. Soon after the storm, they set out on a road trip to the National Air and Space Museum in Washington DC, completely unaware of the social and political maelstrom they’re heading into that will change their lives forever.

The day the storm hit, the world was changed forever.
Its severity would not be measured in property damage or loss of life, although the latter could be argued. This storm’s impact turned man’s beliefs completely upside down; the social upheaval would be worse than the aftermath of any storm in history.
Though this storm did not bring hurricane force winds, driving rain, cyclones or even floods, its effects would be far more subtle … but the impact every bit as palpable. This storm had unique origins and, unlike most weather events, it was not relegated to one geographic area. Indeed it covered the entire planet; no one was left unaffected.
Living or dead.

Featured Review
As a Koontz and King fan, I am always seeking the "next great horror/sci fi hybrid writer" who can deliver a strong story filled with both science fiction and chiller elements, while maintaining a quality of writing that is often lacking in many debut novels. Well, Mimms delivers and then some, offering a plot that combines a unique look at how we deal with death with roots in both the paranormal and science, and a love story between a father and son that grabs the heart and doesn't let go. This first book in what will be a trilogy is a page turner, and I for one finished it with that sense of loss one feels at the end of a book that pulls you in and keeps you there … entertained and satisfied. I cannot wait for Book Two. Open the gates, please!
