Shock Wave by Florian Louisoder is a fascinating tale that will appeal to fans of time travel, science fiction, and historical novels. When Cuba detonates an atomic bomb in the Caribbean, the world that is already experiencing many disasters spirals into a worsening global crisis. Scott DeSantis learns about the Cuban sinister plan while on a mission to fix a wellhead and prepare it for the installation of a blowout prevention system; he is five hundred feet below the Gulf of Mexico. He knows he must save his children and ex-wife, Linda, a nuclear physicist working with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. What Scott doesn’t know is that his beautiful Linda isn’t the person he has known her to be. In order to fix the worsening crisis, Linda has to travel five thousand years into the past and to Atlantis, precisely. Linda must confront the person who once destroyed the world, otherwise, history will repeat itself. Follow the characters on this epic journey to confront Linda’s nemesis, fight the most crucial battles of their life, but can they succeed and come back to the twenty-first-century that they left behind?

A work of great imagination, Shock Wave is an enthralling story told by a master storyteller. The prose is excellent, flowing gracefully, and enriched by vivid descriptions. The portrait of Atlantis is vivid and readers will enjoy not only the impeccable world-building but the ingenuity with which Florian Louisoder writes the conflict. The narrative starts with a powerful premise and the twists are manifold, intelligently and cunningly written into the plot. One can’t guess the direction the story takes, and even after Atlantis, there are surprises in the world that awaits the characters in the twenty-first century. Florian Louisoder writes themes of marriage, love, family, the quest for power and its consequences in a masterful way. Readers will marvel at the intriguing plot points, the narrative charm, and the beguiling world-building of this story. It is a first-rate science fiction novel.
