Trial Run - Fault Lines 1 - by Thomas Locke (aka Davis Bunn)

Cover Art

About the book:

Cutting-edge research requiring controversial experiments. Startling dreams delivering cryptic communication from the dreamer's future self. Ruthless rivals determined to control mind-bending new technology. When you're balancing on the edge of what's possible, trouble awaits, ready to push you into the abyss.

This daring psychological journey into the very nature of causation and consciousness will leave you turning the pages and grasping for solid ground--especially when it becomes clear just how much fact lies within the fiction.

Dr. Gabriella Speciale has assembled an international team of elite scientists with one goal in mind--to create and control out-of-body experiences that transcend the limits of time and space. Reese Clawson's mind-bending experiments aim to explode the boundaries of human consciousness--and annihilate the opposition in the process.

When a terrifying discovery and a string of failed tests threaten to dismantle both programs, the key to survival may reside in the mind of a gifted grad student whose unsettling dreams have thrust him into the center of a dangerous battle for control.

As the threads of perception and reality become tangled and time itself twists in unexpected directions, one warning remains clear: what you don't know can kill you.

My review:

This was a very intriguing story about a fascinating premise.  Mostly it moved at a fast clip, but occasionally I got bogged down a little I think mainly because I didn't get to know any of the characters well.  The suspense was great and it was fascinating to think about the possibility of our minds being able to leave our bodies and what that might look like. Would it be used for good or evil?  I really liked Trent and Shane, a couple of college students caught in the middle.  I was curious why something was happening to Trent, but we never get an answer in this book so I'm assuming it will be addressed in upcoming books in the series. I liked a few of the other characters as well; some were truly fascinating. One thing that was really missing was a faith element.  I didn't see one at all.  The book was clean, so that had it going for it, but I expect a book from a Christian author and especially Christian publisher to have something in it.  I am curious where this series will go and plan to read the next.  I recommend it to fans of suspense.

I received this book free from Revell in exchange for an honest review.
