Fault Lines by Thoman Locke - REVIEWED

About the Book:
What if reality is only the edge of possibility?

There isn't much that can throw Charlie Hazard off balance. But the mystery woman with the striking eyes and the intense request to follow her--now--is about to shake his world. Knowing little more than her name, Charlie leaves his post as a guard at the Satellite Beach community center for what he thinks is just another risk-containment job. But Gabriella, an experimental psychologist, has far more in store for him than protection duty--if the two of them survive the test.

Reese Clawson relishes her work at the Combine and all the perks and power that come with it--including the ability to manipulate perceptions. But the Combine never anticipated this mind-shifting technology. If Gabriella's experiments succeed, the Combine would be destroyed. And Reese will never allow that to happen.

My Thoughts:

“Isn’t this fun?”  (p. 371)

Well, fun is a relative term when it comes to special ops, clandestine companies running insane experiments, and inserting Charlie Hazard into the mix of all of this and more!  Honestly, I think I held my breath through most of the book!  Wow!  Talk about mind bending!  (pun intended!!)

I think the scariest part of reading this story is its totally plausibility.  There are so many things being developed and kept secret from the public, you can’t help but shiver when you read tales like Fault Lines.  There are lines that you hope will never be crossed, and yet man’s desire to be in total control has been burning fierce since the Garden of Eden.  The lie the enemy tempted mankind with then has been exponentially tweaked in this novel!!  Have mercy!

So, if you enjoy action packed, high intensity drama you will LOVE THIS NOVEL!!  Set aside time to get behind on major tasks, because time simply evaporates once you being reading.  Charlie Hazard is a to-die-for hero in every sense of the word, and his nine lives make him all the more endearing!  Honestly, he can get out the worst situations and live to tell the tale!  I’d hate to know what he dreams about when he ever does go to sleep!  I shudder to imagine!

Anyway, great characters – both good and bad – amazing writing and a plot line that leaves you begging for more!  No wonder this authors books have sold more than seven million copies!  Great day in the morning!! I hope I’ll be reading the adventures of Charlie Hazard for years to come!!  What are you waiting for????
