About The Book

Marcie Horton has a sixth sense. Not in the “I see dead people” way, but . . . well, maybe a little. She feels a sort of knowing about certain things that can’t be explained–an intuition that goes beyond the normal. Then there was that one summer four years ago, when she connected with a long-departed spirit . . . But nothing that incredible has happened to Marcie since. This summer, Marcie is spending time working at Angel Mounds, the archeological dig her mother heads, along with her brother, Eric, and his girlfriend, Renee. The dig is the site of an ancient indigenous civilization, and things immediately shift into the paranormal when Marcie and her dig teammates meet Lorraine and Zeke. The two mysterious dig assistants reveal their abilities to access the Universal Energy Field with their minds–something Marcie knows only vaguely that her brother has also had experience with. Marcie learns how our planet will disintegrate if action is not taken, and she and her team must decide if they are brave enough to help Lorraine and Zeke in their plan to save Mother Earth, her resources, and her history. It looks like the summer just got a lot more interesting.


My Thoughts

This is a paranormal story, but there are so many important real facts told in the story that it really didn’t feel sci-fi, it felt like a dream, with some “unexplicable things” but based on reality, I couldn’t put it down!
This is the second book of the series The Catalysts, in the beginning I felt a little bit lost and didn’t know the links between the main characters, but as the story progressed everything fall into their place and the story felt more complex.
I love science, so possibly that’s one of the main reasons I felt connected with this book, the main character, Marcie, will spend the summer working on the archeological dig with her mother, brother (Eric) and Eric’s girlfriend (Renee). Marcie will feel that there’s something more about the archeological site that what she is seeing and some of the other workers are acting strange. Is she ready to discover the truth or is it too soon?
I think that some of the books that I am reading right now are trying to show us that now it’s the moment to change the world, if we don’t do it now it will be too late, this is the case of this book. With some important facts about fracking and the way we are wrecking our planet it’s time to take a step back and change the way we are acting. I think that Catalyst is a great book for young adults and adults, the story is interesting but don’t get lost with it, never forget what this book is really saying, it’s now or never. In fiction there’s always hope and a hero to save us, but in the real world it has to be us the heroes and it’s time to make the change, use the Catalyst to improve.

About The Author

TRACY RICHARDSON wasn’t always a writer, but she was always a reader. Her favorite book growing up was A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle. In a weird way that book has even shaped her life through odd synchronicities. She has a degree in biology like Mrs. Murry, and, without realizing it, she named her children Alex and Katie after Meg’s parents.
Tracy uses her science background in her writing through her emphasis on environmental issues, metaphysics, and science fiction. When she’s not writing, you’ll find her doing any number of creative activities — painting furniture, knitting sweaters, or cooking something. She lives in Indianapolis, and, in case you’re wondering, yes, she’s been to the Indianapolis 500.
