From the Inside Flap
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.|Thomas Locke is a pseudonym for Davis Bunn, an award-winning novelist with worldwide sales of seven million copies. His work has been published in twenty-five languages. Davis divides his time between Oxford and Florida and holds a lifelong passion for speculative stories. He is the author of Emissary and Merchant of Alyss in the Legends of the Realm series, as well as Trial Run and Flash Point in the Fault Lines series. Learn more at www.tlocke.com.

Although this is the third full length novel to be released in this series, chronologically, this book takes place before Trial Run and Flash Point. If you have read the novella Double Edge that released way back in 2015, you will recognise the opening chapters in Fault Lines (and now that I’ve told you, you won’t be sitting there wondering why it seems vaguely familiar, like I was!) Fault Lines gives us the full story of how Charlie Hazard came to be involved with Gabriella’s team, and even the story of why Reese Clawson is determined to obliterate Gabriella’s entire group. And it’s intense!
I’m not going to say anything about the plot. That would be totally spoiling it. But I will say that I love the character of Charlie Hazard. And I promise it’s not because we’re told his late wife described him as ‘an old soul trapped in an underwear model’s body’! (Although you won’t hear me complaining, either!) But Charlie is quietly intense, loyal, and honourable. He has some totally mad skills, thanks to his time as an Army Ranger and training covert operatives on field techniques, and when it comes to a battle of wits, Vizzini would lose before he arrived, and even the Man in Black wouldn’t know what hit him!
The icing on the cake is Thomas Locke’s writing. I find myself highlighting passages simply because of the delicious way he phrases things. It’s what first drew me to his writing, and the main reason why I picked up the first book in this series, despite it being so far out of my usual reading genre.
Just one thing. Please tell me there is another one coming—to continue the story after Flash Point! *bats eyelashes*
I received a copy of this book from the publisher. This has not influenced the content of my review, which is my honest and unbiased opinion.
Fault Lines by Thomas Locke is one of the most frustrating yet brilliant series and books I’ve read. I’m a Thomas Locke fan and read everything he writes as the books are released.
So, you can imagine my surprise as I began reading Fault Lines to remember what was going to happen. Déjà vu was in full force. But then, that’s what Fault Lines is all about—seeing the future, watching the future come into the present, and then experiencing the present become the past.
Charlie Hazard, the hero from Trial Run and Flash Point is in action again in Fault Lines. We see our other favorite characters too—Gabriella, the beautiful Italian scientist; Julio, the sassy teen who becomes a man under Charlie’s tutelage; Irma, the retired homicide detective; and the elusive Benny.
Our favorite villains are here as well—Reese Clawson, the immoral blonde bad gal, is back in action trying to take Charlie and Gabriella and their work down.
If you’re a fan of this series, you must read this book—you’ll wonder as I did where in time you are. Five stars, Thomas. A series in reverse—what a strategy!
Thomas Locke is a pseudonym for Davis Bunn, allowing Davis to write books that transcend the usual genres he’s known for. Fault Lines is a futuristic series, Legend of the Realms is a fantasy series. Thomas/Davis teaches at writer’s conferences, has won awards too numerous to mention, and resides six months in Florida and six months in Oxford, England, where he serves as Writer in Residence. He’s a lifelong fan of speculative fiction—Fault Lines proves his fascination with the genre.
Revell Books, a division of Baker Publishing, gave me a copy of Fault Lines, but I was in no way obligated to write a review, favorable or otherwise.
