    WOW Talk about a wild and crazy, mind boggling ride that challenged my perception of time and space aka reality Trial Run revved my senses and blew my mind I m not absolutely sure of exactly what I just read, not in any concrete scientific sort of way quantum physics not being anywhere near my forte But I really, REALLY liked it Obviously I can t vouch for the authenticity of the scientific rigaramo However, the plot was finely tuned, fast paced, and pulse pounding intriguing WOW Talk about a wild and crazy, mind boggling ride that challenged my perception of time and space aka reality Trial Run revved my senses and blew my mind I m not absolutely sure of exactly what I just read, not in any concrete scientific sort of way quantum physics not being anywhere near my forte But I really, REALLY liked it Obviously I can t vouch for the authenticity of the scientific rigaramo However, the plot was finely tuned, fast paced, and pulse pounding intriguing There are a whole host of fascinating, unique characters Diverse, but yet not Not in a way I can expound on without giving away the complexities of the plot Which at first, made it hard to keep track of is who is who good or evil, friend or foe and what is what Ascending Transiting Racing Pulsing The way in which Locke threads the story together, paralleling the theory of non linear time, it was challenging for my artistic tuned brain to graspwhereand orwhenspecifically things were occurring Past, present, future Or simultaneously, somewhere in between TIME is of the ESSENCE Travel lightly and hang on for the ride..Fans of The Adjustment Bureau movie based on Adjustment Team, or Intersteller with Matthew McConaughey should find this book greatly appealing Both movies I enjoyed, even if I didn t fully understand the science behind them Much like roller coasters No way could I build one, but I certainly enjoy the thrill of the ride FOUR Mind Blowing, Time Bending, Quantum Leaping STARS

    Baker Books recently sent me a complimentary copy of Trial Run in exchange for an honest evaluation of its merits Despite a couple of geographical flubs and the use of a few British colloquialisms that might throw off American audiences, Locke gives readers a well executed techno thriller that engages them to the very end While authors like Michael Crichton helped popularized this genre, his work alwaysabout the technology than it was the people What makes Trial Run stand out is that Lo Baker Books recently sent me a complimentary copy of Trial Run in exchange for an honest evaluation of its merits Despite a couple of geographical flubs and the use of a few British colloquialisms that might throw off American audiences, Locke gives readers a well executed techno thriller that engages them to the very end While authors like Michael Crichton helped popularized this genre, his work alwaysabout the technology than it was the people What makes Trial Run stand out is that Locke is first and foremost concerned about helping the reader connect to fully developed characters and their struggles He clearly has done his research as the author lives in England and Florida, but you can feel practically feel the rays of the Santa Barbara sun as much of the story takes place on the West Coast It s also fun to see an author experiment with different genres, as his first book, The Emissary, was mythic fiction and Trial Run is a techno thriller Since Locke is such a master storyteller, I am eager to see where his next story takes us

    I really couldn t wait to jump right in and read Thomas Locke s new book Trial Run I enjoy suspense and thriller books that feature a threat to our current way of living I like learning new things when I read a book I enjoy being taken on a ride that keeps getting worse and worse for the characters in the novel Even though my opinion on this book is going against the flow, I still will state my opinion I really did not like Trial Run This book would be good for fans of books with a lot of I really couldn t wait to jump right in and read Thomas Locke s new book Trial Run I enjoy suspense and thriller books that feature a threat to our current way of living I like learning new things when I read a book I enjoy being taken on a ride that keeps getting worse and worse for the characters in the novel Even though my opinion on this book is going against the flow, I still will state my opinion I really did not like Trial Run This book would be good for fans of books with a lot of technical jargon and scientific theory Trial Run has lots and lots of technical jargon When I read an entire paragraph and had to scratch my head, wondering what Locke just had the character reveal to me, I get confused It is hard as a reader to not understand what the characters are doing and talking about In the beginning of the book, many different characters came on board, and I really saw no connection between any of them After a while, I became confused with what was happening in the story What does Charlie and Gabriella s story have to do with Dor Jen What about the two college students, Trent and Shane It was hard to feel connected to any of the characters.There really is no action or conflict occurring on the page I don t know if this is because I really had no idea what the technical jargon meant, so I was confused, making this story hard to follow While there appeared to be something sinister happening below the scene with the ascents, I really never felt any internal or external conflict in the characters or surrounding the characters Trial Run was really hard for me to keep reading I did give up around page 200 and flip to the ending Even the ending wasn t satisfactory to me As someone who adores suspense and thriller books, this one definitely did nothing for me I wouldn t recommend it anyone I kept coming up with different books to read while avoiding going back to this book I picked it up four different times and read about fifty pages, then sat it down before picking it up another book that captured my attention While the plot did nothing for me, the writing was good Locke does have a good handle of how a book should be written with an even amount of dialogue and prose Each dialogue from each character was different I had no trouble distinguishing between each individual character I received a complimentary copy from Revell Publishing and the opinions stated are all my own

    Three stars is I liked it and I did I liked the plot very much It was about as exciting as a techno thriller can get, spanning the globe with science stuff that was entertaining Except for the overuse of run on sentences clearly meant to be the author s style, the writing was well edited It s clear this writer has been around for a long time and knows how to plot a thriller So if that is your jam, you ll love it However, the structure was set up so that the beginning of the book hopped Three stars is I liked it and I did I liked the plot very much It was about as exciting as a techno thriller can get, spanning the globe with science stuff that was entertaining Except for the overuse of run on sentences clearly meant to be the author s style, the writing was well edited It s clear this writer has been around for a long time and knows how to plot a thriller So if that is your jam, you ll love it However, the structure was set up so that the beginning of the book hopped from one character to another They were forgettable, which was frustrating because you knew the writer was placing them as pieces on the chess board so he could play the game I prefer a thriller with one main, larger than life character, think Lee Child or Steve Berry but that s just me If you read this book like you re watching a Mission Impossible movie, you ll be able to keep all the characters straight I do think it would have worked better as a screenplay, but I think that was the point The opening scene was clearly meant to be filmed in your mind s eye I received an Advanced Reader s Copy from the publisher in exchange for my honest review

    This is a very exciting book A techno thirller that will have you on the edge of your seat and reading as fast as you can to find out what will happen I am not technology savy, however, the manner in which Mr Locke writes this story enables me to understand what is going on In the places where the physics is over my head, I found that I didn t need to totally comprehend to be able to totally enjoy the story The very idea of being able to affect the tangible with your mind makes for some exc This is a very exciting book A techno thirller that will have you on the edge of your seat and reading as fast as you can to find out what will happen I am not technology savy, however, the manner in which Mr Locke writes this story enables me to understand what is going on In the places where the physics is over my head, I found that I didn t need to totally comprehend to be able to totally enjoy the story The very idea of being able to affect the tangible with your mind makes for some exciting reading Heart poundingly excellent in all respects I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review

    Imagine a world where you have to battle against an unseen enemy An enemy that can go anywhere and where time is halted in that realm Imagine that nothing could be secret or hidden any longer, because as long as you possessed the power to leave your body and will it to go anywhere, you would be the ultimate weapon.In the latest novel by Thomas Locke, who is also known as Davis Bunn in the literary world, he goes quite literally when NO man has gone before, and I m not talking about space Wher Imagine a world where you have to battle against an unseen enemy An enemy that can go anywhere and where time is halted in that realm Imagine that nothing could be secret or hidden any longer, because as long as you possessed the power to leave your body and will it to go anywhere, you would be the ultimate weapon.In the latest novel by Thomas Locke, who is also known as Davis Bunn in the literary world, he goes quite literally when NO man has gone before, and I m not talking about space Where he comes up with these incredible ideas is beyond me but I love the storyline in Trial Run I can best describe it as a blend of Flatliners meets Jumper In this novel you have two groups who are battling to discover who can uncover this ability to ascend or transit out of their body, recover some secrets and return without falling into a coma on their return.Charlie Hazard works with his team in Campione, Switzerland alongside Gabriella Speciale, the chief scientist who has had the most success in ascending They are the good guys and are trying to perfect the ability to leave your body and travel in a world of suspended time travel where time is constant To be gone in this world for 5 minutes might be a week in ascended time travel They are trying to keep this out of the hands of political groups who want this for their own selfish purposes.Reese Clawson is heading up the team in the United States under fictitious names and is having less than desirable success since taking Gabriella s secret to travel outside one s body Only her success rate has resulted in 9 bodies who remain in a constant state of coma because they never returned from their assignment If she can t find a way to prove her team is successful, Washington will pull the plug and shut her down Trent Major is a physics prodigy who algorithms subvert computer encryption and give rise to a super intelligence that goes beyond what anyone has ever seen The only problem is now he has become the focus of both of these teams trying to win him over to their side but for very different purposes What is given in his dreams will be the ultimate weapon of destruction if it falls into the wrong hands and could mean the end of all life as we know it I received Trial Run by Thomas Locke compliments of Revell Publishing and Edify Media Group for my honest review I did not receive any monetary compensation for my review and the opinions contained here are my own To be honest, the beginning of the book was hard to understand at first So many different things going on as the reader begins to map out who the players are, in three different groups I would encourage you to hold on, even though the technological explanations might be overwhelming at times, with regards to the laws of physics, but I promise, it will be so worth it, but about mid way through the book You might want to grab a paper and keep the characters separate until the action takes place I absolutely love this novel and can t wait for the sequel For me, it was a well earned 5 out of 5 stars and so far, anything that Davis Bunn or Thomas Locke, who are the same person, writes will be on my immediate have to read list Trial Run is the first novel in the Fault Lines Series

    Deb s Dozen Quantum physics wunderkind, business maven Out of body experiences gone wrong Are they redeemable Thomas Locke s new series, Fault Lines, begins with a prequel, Double Edge, and then continues with Trial Run The back cover says, What you don t know can kill you Despite the cover come on, I must admit that the beginning of the novel did not hook me The first few chapters are confusing until Locke gets all the characters introduced and the backstory told Once we can figure out Deb s Dozen Quantum physics wunderkind, business maven Out of body experiences gone wrong Are they redeemable Thomas Locke s new series, Fault Lines, begins with a prequel, Double Edge, and then continues with Trial Run The back cover says, What you don t know can kill you Despite the cover come on, I must admit that the beginning of the novel did not hook me The first few chapters are confusing until Locke gets all the characters introduced and the backstory told Once we can figure out who the good guys and the bad guys are and what is at stake, the story takes on a life of its own and draws the reader in.Locke is smart to introduce one of the main characters, Trent Major, as a troubled but brilliant scientist in quantum physics, who is given an algorithm that will revolutionize game theory Any gamer who picks up the book is going to read further to see what happens in the game world Trent s partner in crime is Shane Schearer, a business maven working on her advanced degree, but bored out of her skull They make the perfect foils to play the rest of the novel against.Enter good guy, Dr Gabriela Speciale you know she s special because of her last name , who is trying to create and control out of body experiences that go beyond the normal boundaries of space and time And Charlie Hazard, the bodyguard God figure in the series and an ex special forces guy Gabriela has hired to protect her and her scientists from all hazards Next enter the bad guys Kevin Henley, who is employed by one of those mysterious ultra secret government organizations, and Reese Clawson, a security expert who also has the ability to run human consciousness experiments like Gabriela, but whose goal is to control and destroy the opposition.How they all interrelate, how they operate, the experiments they perform and succeed or fail at, is the stuff of the future come to the present Locke obviously has a fascination with quantum physics as parts of the processes are described in mind numbing detail at least to those of us with a non technical brain I liked the byplay among the characters I liked the theme of rescue and redemption that plays throughout the novel I did not like the ending too many strings left untied as an obvious hook to the next book in the series, as yet unnamed, coming the summer of 2016 A generous four stars.Thomas Locke is the pseudonym for Davis Bunn, the award winning novelist with total worldwide sales of seven million copies His work has been published in twenty languages, and critical acclaim includes four Christy Awards for excellence in fiction As Thomas Locke, Davis is also the author of Emissary an excellent five star fantasy To learn , or to download Double Edge, go to www.tlocke.com.Revell Books and Laura Christenson Blogging Bistro made sure I received a copy of Trial Run in exchange for my candid review

    First off WOW Thomas Locke otherwise known as Davis Bunn has literally knocked my boots off with this one This genre is so completely new to him as far as I know , that his feat is amazing Other than the prequel Double Edge, Locke comes into this new genre fully loaded to run with the best of them his first time out Davis Bunn is a master story teller who has kept me spell bound over the years As Thomas Locke, well, what can I say Already a master story teller in other genres, he ju First off WOW Thomas Locke otherwise known as Davis Bunn has literally knocked my boots off with this one This genre is so completely new to him as far as I know , that his feat is amazing Other than the prequel Double Edge, Locke comes into this new genre fully loaded to run with the best of them his first time out Davis Bunn is a master story teller who has kept me spell bound over the years As Thomas Locke, well, what can I say Already a master story teller in other genres, he just leaps into this new genre like its old hat, but even better The idea in this book is that a person can leave his body and literally go anywhere and time is frozen Take that to another level and that body can now be used as an ultimate weapon Nothing can be hidden Nothing can be secret An amazing concept I don t know a lot of the technical things, but Locke has written this in a way that even I can understand And unlike some authors who really focus on the technical details of any given thing, Locke puts a lothumanity into this book than mere technology That human factor comes from his writing in different genres as Davis Bunn, and in my opinion, it just makes this new debut even better Honestly, I was kind of discouraged in the beginning of this book because there are several groups of role characters It was hard to keep track of each one at first, but the further and further I got into the book, the better it got, so if you get a bit frustrated, I d encourage you to keep reading, because the end of book one is WELL worth it I can hardly wait for book two Also, if you read the prequel, Double Edge, it will help you understand Trial Run much better Thank you Thomas Locke for a TRULY THRILLING RIDE I received a complimentary copy of this book from Revell in exchange for my honest review This is my own honest review, and the opinions are strictly my own This is a link to the free complimentary prequel Double Edge
