Trial Run by Thomas Locke (Fault Lines)

I was thrilled with this book! It wasn't dumbed down, it has lots of Sci-Fi as well as suspense and I didn't want to put it down once I got into it a bit. The permutations of oh, what about this, or what if that were great! The threads that start out start to pull together more and more as you read. This book focus on time. Time, out of body experiences, lack of fear, saving lives but it doesn't end there. What if you could be the ultimate weapon and while doing so uncover massive secrets? Two teams are racing to do just that. A group in Switzerland and a group in the USA.

Trent Major is one of our main characters. He is a theoretical physicist student who's dreams are showing him paths he needs to tread, or is it his dreams? This causes him to reach out to Shane Schearer, and she isn't sure what to make of him, but his ideas are amazing! If she can trust him, this might change all kinds of major ways things work in the world!

That is just the tip of all that is going on in this book, which I really enjoyed!

My copy came from Revell in exchange for my honest review and nothing more.

"Somewhere between spectacular and astonishingly compelling. After I finished, I could not let it go."--Phyllis Tickle, former senior editor, Publishers Weekly

Cutting-edge research requiring controversial experiments. Startling dreams delivering cryptic communication from the dreamer's future self. Ruthless rivals determined to control mind-bending new technology. When you're balancing on the edge of what's possible, trouble awaits, ready to push you into the abyss.

This daring psychological journey into the very nature of causation and consciousness will leave you turning the pages and grasping for solid ground--especially when it becomes clear just how much fact lies within the fiction.

"Truly remarkable. Extremely vivid and very well crafted. A wonderful read."--Keith Hazard, Acting Deputy Director (ret), Central Intelligence Agency

Dr. Gabriella Speciale has assembled an international team of elite scientists with one goal in mind--to create and control out-of-body experiences that transcend the limits of time and space. Reese Clawson's mind-bending experiments aim to explode the boundaries of human consciousness--and annihilate the opposition in the process.

When a terrifying discovery and a string of failed tests threaten to dismantle both programs, the key to survival may reside in the mind of a gifted grad student whose unsettling dreams have thrust him into the center of a dangerous battle for control.

As the threads of perception and reality become tangled and time itself twists in unexpected directions, one warning remains clear: what you don't know can kill you.
