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 read the first book in this series, Trial Run, but missed this second one. However, that made no difference in the enjoyment of this book. This book stood fine on its own, but it also made me want to go back and read the others. It was a high paced page turner. The time and space travel angle of things is really intriguing. I appreciated the complexity of the characters and their relationships. I also like how Locke gives us just enough details but still leaves lots of questions open to pull the reader into the next book. There is more to come in this series, so it is not over yet. I look forward to the next one and reading the second one.
