Book Review - Fault Lines


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.

I have always enjoyed a good science fiction book and this story absolutely fits that description!

I will be honest and tell you it took me a bit to figure out what was really going on but the wonderful writing and suspense kept me turning page after page to try and figure out what was happening. It was worth it because this is an exceptional book.

We are introduced to the hero of the book right away. Charlie is a guy that other men want for their best friend and women love because of his strength and loyalty. He's a "risk containment specialist" and he's used to dealing with difficult situations. He also seems to enjoy the risk that comes with these situations.

I also liked Gabriella even though I wasn't sure what was really going on with her. Her experiments are part of the plot that kept me coming back asking, what next? I liked her easy personality and could understand why Charlie would trust her.

This is definitely a story that's "out there", but then, in this genre, that's what makes it extra good. You want to be asking yourself if this could really happen or not. It's a story that keeps your mind turning and I enjoy that a lot. I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.
