Unsettling and uniquely compelling…
Bellec makes his debut with this deeply engrossing dystopian thriller. It is 2040. The world is in the middle of chaos. Technology has taken over the lives of the human race, with tech companies commanding the interests of the population. Still untouched by natural disasters, New York is ready to welcome the music festival, Pulsefest. But a deadly pandemic rip through the ground, turning people into violent mutants. The ingenuity of Bellec’s unsettling tale lies both in its intriguing premise with a frighteningly realistic futuristic world and its precise execution. The narrative shuffles between the present and the past, telling a story as complex as the soul-capturing music woven throughout. The characters, be it minor or major, are fully fleshed-out and add texture to the narrative. The starting is slow, but as the story moves forward, Bellec adeptly establishes numerous plot details and relationships between his large cast of characters. Bellec has depicted a nightmarish scenario that’s not too far from today’s reality.
