BOOK REVIEW- LINKAGE (THE NARROWS OF TIME BOOK 1)
A scientific experiment has gone haywire and people are disappearing and dying as energy funnels tear across different parts of the globe. These powerful energy towers are not only destroying people but everything that gets in its way. In the center of this drama are two foster brothers, Drew and Lucas Ramsay, who are scrambling to get to the bottom of things; after all they are terrified that they started this thing. Are the towers linked to their experiment? Added to that terror is that Drew's new love, Abby has disappeared as well; right in front of his eyes. There are plenty of people who are hunting Drew and Lucas. They want them dead.
This story really was a slow starter. I lost focus several times when it got into a lot of the scientific explanation of some of the story. I was thankful when Abby was there to help break some of it down into something easier for me to understand. Sorry, I might like Sci-Fi stories but I'm not really a Science Geek.
The story started to pick up when the "Gruesome Event" happens. I'm kind of squemish so it was a bit too detailed for me; but probably not that bad for others.
I really liked Drew and Lucas and their close relationship to each other. It did throw me at first because of the way the two talked to each other and the people around them, when they weren't talking science. It was kind of awkward like they were still in high school. But they were kind of isolated and I think the point was they weren't really socially adept and the author made his point if you look at it from that point of view. I did see that it began to change as time went on. Lucas, was really a well filled in as a character and you just can't help but be drawn to him in the story; he just cares for so many people. Don't count out their boss/friend Professor Kleezebee; he has lots going on.
So bottom line? Slow starter, lots of science lingo, some detailed blooded scenes. Is that a problem for you? Then give it a pass. BUT, if you hang on for awhile, it does speed up some and then there are suprise after surprise around every corner..
On a side note, I really did like the cover picture on this ebook
