ABOUT THE BOOK
What if the limits of time and space were breached?
Lena Fennan is a low-level financial analyst with a high-powered conviction. Just as she’s on the verge of a life-transforming windfall, a mysterious invitation draws her into a series of events that threatens to crush her. But captivated by a glimpse into a breathtaking future, Lena refuses to give in.
Reese Clawson emerges from prison gripped by the slow burn of revenge. She aims to track down everyone who had a hand in destroying her—and take them out. First on the list is Charlie Hazard, who will be snared by their shared secret.
As events and places become tangled, Lena and Reese are pulled into a collision course that could redefine everything—even the limits of human possibilities.
This is the second book in Thomas Locke's new series, Fault Lines, and is just as action packed as the first one. You'll have a better understanding of this book and what is going on if you read the first book, Trial Run.
As with the first one, my enjoyment of this book was somewhat lessened by the fact that I didn't understand a lot of the scientific technological terms and the fact that you aren't really told what goals or visions are leading Lena and the team. Lena gets this brilliant vision and then she's led to tell people about it and put it into action. However, as the reader, you have to kind of piece it together by what happens in the rest of the book because it's never fully told to you.
Although not written as a "Christian" book, the realm the teams find themselves in while out-of-body and the monsters they face there and in the flesh, to me are reminiscent of spiritual warfare. You definitely have a good-vs-evil vibe. Locke's description of the monsters and the way they take over the body of the team member was definitely creepy and made me think of demons. The stand off at the end was spectacular and awesome!
Thomas Locke (aka Davis Bunn) is a talented & prolific writer so I have no doubt that if you enjoy a fast paced, action packed book, you'll love this mind-bending, spine-tingling, psychologically thrilling techno-thriller!
