E M P Honeymoon: Kelly & Tom by Mercer, Dorothy May; is a well-crafted science fiction. Despite being fictional, the book showcases some really scary facts.

Sgt. Tom Turbulo takes his recently wedded wife, Kelly McBride on a honeymoon to Honduras. One afternoon they are out of their villa exploring and enjoying their surroundings. Tom goes on a dive boat to see the reefs, while Kelly is on an excursion us checking out the island. Stumbling upon what looks like a gift shop she discovers something that could easily cost her life. She narrowly escapes being captured. Colonel Ree Su-jin alias Sue Lynn Reese is a woman on a mission she doesn't even understand. She just wants to please her superiors, no matter the cost. Therefore, she's leading a team of men to Honduras secretly awaiting further instructions and information.

Senator McBride is worried when he gets a phone call from his sister who sounds nervous and scared. His assistant, Cynthia Patterson, who is also his private investigator and bodyguard, is tasked to reach out to Kelly and ensure her safety. She sends out a team of two ladies as they join forces with Steve from CIA and make a discovery that could bring the country to its knees.

The author has written a book about a phenomenon known to very few people: the solar flare and how it can be detrimental to civilisation. She goes into details explaining how the natural and unstoppable flares can cause E M P (Electro-Magnetic Pulse): adding in that it can also be man-made. Apart from that, Dorothy talks about terrorism, love, family, politics among many other themes she brings out. There are so many things she touches on, but it doesn't contrast in fact, it meshes into a beautiful narration that easily captures the reader's attention.

The book is well researched as evident at the end where the sources of information have been thoroughly illustrated. The editing will need a little polishing. However, the negative I need to point out is on Page 64 where the author introduces to us Agatha. She doesn't tell us that her name is shortened to Aggie, and I thought that was another character until later on when I connected the dots. Otherwise, the book has no major shortcomings that could affect the rating.

I rate the book a 4 out of 4 stars. I really enjoyed reading the book. It's standalone, and I would recommend it to all lovers of science fiction.

Great review. I researched solar flares right after I finished reading it.
