Sean and Dillion are back! In the second installment in what I hope will be an on-going series, Thomas Locke weaves together multiple story lines and introduces us to new worlds and new characters in his thrilling new work.
The action is fast paced. The only problem you face when reading this book is how can you stop and wait until the next day to continue reading. Locke’s description of new worlds and new technology is amazing. You can see what a fictional world looks like after reading this novel. As one of the characters in the book says about another gift, the ability to create images with words is a gift that cannot be taught and can only be honed. He has honed his gift well.
The story will draw you in. If you like to try to guess the outcome, good luck. The author manages again to point the story in one direction and then suddenly shift the flow to an unseen conclusion. The characters that we met in the first Recruits Novel appear in the second but mostly through only the memories and musing of the Twins. This one is about refining the skills that make the twins unique. That uniqueness is what is called for in the current crisis facing our reluctant heroes.
I may be stretching it here, but I can see a possible connection at some point in the future between this series and the Legends of the Realm Series. Those who are familiar with both may or may not agree with me. If true it would be a stroke of genius for Locke to tie them all together with the Fault Lines series in a way that would connect the ancient past, the present or near future, and the distant future. I’ll just leave that with the fans to mull over for a while!
I enjoyed the story immensely. I believe if you are a fan of good fiction you will as well. Now I can’t wait until the next installment in this compelling series!
I received a promotional copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
