Create and control out-of-body experiences. That is the one goal Dr Gabriella Special is working towards, and the reason she has assembled a team of the top scientists from around the world. Reese Clawson's mind bending experiments aim to explode the boundaries of human consciousness - and in the process, annihilate his opposition. But a terrifying discovery and a string of failed tests threaten to dismantle both programs and 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 lethal battle for control.

Deuce SkunksSpringfield, MOAge: 25-34Gender: Female4 Stars Out Of 5Complicated Storyline. Slow To Start. Well Worth The Time.October 19, 2016Deuce SkunksSpringfield, MOAge: 25-34Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Trial Run is the first book of the Fault Lines series by Thomas Locke (aka Davis Bunn). This book is about two differentprograms competing to achieve the ability to have safe andcontrolled "transits" or "ascents" - out of body experiences. As both programs experience unforeseen complications, it becomes a tighter competition and a race to save the lives of their team members.
This book is very complex right off the bat, introducing you to several key players within the first few chapters, jumping around a lot, and expecting you to somehow keep track of who everyone is and where each game plan is headed. This book is definitely not for those that have a hard time keeping everything straight when stories get complicated.
I had a hard time keeping an interest for the firstthird of the book, but kept reading because I really like Locke's writing style. The secondthird of the book was a smoother ride, but still not really getting to the point fast enough for my taste. The lastthird of the book, I couldn't set it down, and was caught off guard by the abrupt ending. I want to know the rest of the story. Looks like I'm headed off to order book number 2 soon. 4/5 stars.

MaryAnnORAge: 55-65Gender: Female4 Stars Out Of 5Beyond time's limitsNovember 14, 2015MaryAnnORAge: 55-65Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Futuristic out-of-body "transits" allow participants to move forward or backward in time since they escape its bounds. What could this ability allow spies to accomplish, and what might happen if it's used by those with no conscience? This techno-thriller brings together all this and much more. The first book of the Fault Lines series runs away with the imagination and leaves readers desiring more while wondering if anything like the events portrayed could ever really occur. Even if the mathematic probabilities and quantum physics are beyond understanding, the excitement of the story offers a run you don't want to end.
