Fans of Lois Duncan will like this book as much as any of her other books, but no more... That's all it is, your typical Lois Duncan book.
Like my favorite book of hers, Don't look Behind You, the story is told in the first person, which makes it more personal, but also slows it down. One of Duncan's strength has always been the number of characters she develops in her books. Books like I Know What You Did Last Summer and Killing Mr. Griffin were better because they had a lot of characters, so something was always happening to somebody.
Locked in Time is a sort of darker version of Tuck Everlasting showing the scary and depressing side of what it would be like to live forever. The book has some scary parts, and is fairly readable, but it never hits any new heights for Duncan, and the climax is not particularly exciting (nothing new for Duncan, since the endings of most of her books are fairly abrupt.)
The end of Locked in Time is alright, but it seems kind of forced and it doesn't really resolve any of the issues put forward in the book.
