    One thought on “Lock & Key”

    1. I recently took the time to read Lock & Key by Gordon Bonnet. While I don’t typically write science fiction (I’ve written a short story or two, but not a novel—well, not yet, anyway), I do enjoy reading it. I’m often leery about an unknown author in this genre, because if the storyworld isn’t properly developed, if the details of the fiction aren’t well-thought out, then the story won’t seem real and it’s a disappointing read.Well, I don’t know if you’ve heard of Gordon B [...]

    2. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest reviewFirst off, this is a book about time travel. Normaly I don't read tales about time travel, but this was an exceptional story. It starts off with a murder and this murder eradicates the entire human race. The person who was killed, instead of dying; gets sent to a sort of limbo in null space where he meets several strange individuals who convinces him that he needs to investigate so that he can save his life and the entire [...]

    3. I was thrilled with this book! It was a pleasant surprise. Bonnet threw together character who did not seem like they should fit together, but they truly did. Poor Darren is forced to do things he never thought he had the power or ability to do. (I hate giving away the plot, so I don't like to give detailed reviews.) Suffice it to say, an older Scottish lady, a foul-mouthed heavy metal-listening young librarian, and a bookstore guy from Seattle have quite the adventure over "time."

    4. A story for true thinkersI like a story I cannot figure out ahead of time. No matter how many clues were revealed I still couldn't predict the outcome of this story or the events leading up to it I have read hundreds of books and have developed a sense for even the most seemingly unpredictable story lines. I'm impressed that I couldn't predict the outcome of this one. Truly refreshing.

    5. Unique take on time travelThis author had some astounding assumptions about time and predestination versus fate and choice. Very enjoyable characters, great ending. I really enjoyed reading the book. Thanks.

    6. InterestingGood read. A little slow in some areas, and a little confusing, although I would still recommend this book. The concept is quite entertaining.
