Trial Run is a very well written book. I like the way Locke weaves the various plot threads throughout the book, all the while stirring up thoughts and opinions. The read is stimulating and left me thinking about it long after I finished reading. This is a book I will pick up again to re-read in order to capture bits I may have missed the first time through. The characters feel well fleshed out and complete people, as though I could actually meet them someday. Overall this is one of those books that sticks with you and could quite possibly be made into an exciting movie. I received an ARC through Revell publishing in exchange for an honest review. This in no way influenced my opinion.
