- Review from Rambles of a SAHM by Fitzysmom on 9/3/2015
I'm going to admit right up front that I didn't understand the theories behind the quantum physics or the space-time continuum. But the story was so well crafted that it didn't matter. While this novel is science fictionesque it reads completely like a suspense/ thriller. The whys behind what the characters were experimenting with made little sense to me but I quickly became entangled in the overall plot.
Rather than be caught up in all of the experiments with the different characters I was drawn into their personal stories and all the swirling plots to undermine and take out the competitors. I really like Thomas Locke (and Davis Bunn)'s work and I really think this is my favorite novel yet. I'm not particularly fond of sci-fi type of books but this piece of literature seemed to move me beyond that. Yes there is plenty of science fiction going on but there is also mystery and intrigue and a bit of romance as well. I think it will appeal to a large audience.
Now let me tell you about the ending without telling you about the ending. By the time I reached the last page of the last chapter I was worn out. The story came to a nice conclusion. It had a bit of a cliff hanger but not a completely torturous one. The major dilemmas were solved and the characters were in situations that made sense. While the main themes were wrapped up there were things that made you wonder what was going to happen. And then I read the excerpt for book two . . . now that was torture! That little snippet gave just enough information to make me wish I could travel into the future and read the conclusion, just like the fictional characters in the book. How appropriate.
I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review.
