Summer Reads: Fault Lines by Thomas Locke

Revell; 398 pages; $14.99; Amazon

Now available from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group, is the thriller Fault Lines by Thomas Locke. The novel is a prequel to Trial Run and Flash Point.

Fault Lines centers on Charlie Hazard, who leaves his post as a security expert at the Satellite Beach community center for a more exciting job after meeting the lovely and mysterious Gabriella McLaren, an experimental psychologist. She works for a group of scientist who are measuring unseen experiences. Basically they are studying how the human conscious can leave the physical body, which will hopefully lead to out-of-body experiences, and maybe even the possibility for the mind to see the future.

Another group called the "Combine" are trying to destroy Gabriella's group, as they want to take a more "global conquer" approach.

Final Thoughts: I wasn't aware there were two other books in the series when I originally signed up to review Fault Lines. Despite being a prequel, I had a difficult time trying to figure out the main plot. For me, the characters felt too wooden, with very little depth to them. The "mind-shifting technology" plot sounds interesting on paper, but it plays out in a very confusing way.

Overall, I was disappointed with Fault Lines. I couldn't connect with the plot or the characters. Maybe I need to read the other two books in the series for me to be able to understand Fault Lines.
