about the book....

It's a world they've seen only in their dreams--until now.

Twins Sean and Dillon Kirrel have dreamed about a world beyond their own since they were children, but it has always been a fantasy. Not long before their eighteenth birthday, however, the arrival of a mysterious new neighbor and the revelations he shares bring that far-off world within reach. 

When Sean and Dillon learn they share a unique gift--the ability to transfer instantly between worlds--they are offered an opportunity to prove themselves as recruits to the planetary Assembly. But unlocking their abilities awakens an enemy beyond anything they ever imagined, thrusting them into an interplanetary conflict that could consume the entire human race.

my review...

I can hardly contain my enthusiasm for the new series Thomas Locke has birthed with the highly entertaining "Recruits". I opened the pages of this novel only meaning to read a chapter or two, and before I knew it several hours had passed and I was way past my bedtime! I was instantly immersed in the story of Sean and Dillon as they discover their mind-blowing gift, an ability to transfer between worlds previously unknown to them. The scenes are vivid and the setting so real that, if you are anything like me, you will feel like you are right there with them.

"Recruits" begins an amazing war between good and evil, packaged in a unique plot that I guarantee you are going to love. The characters are intriguing and their abilities are the kind that you wish you could have - well, up until their gifts put their very lives are in danger of course! Most amazingly, in the midst of the action and the other-worldly scenes, love blossoms in unexpected ways (although the first chapter of the next book of the series introduces even more unexpected twists in that regard).

I turned the final pages of this book with only two questions on my mind. First of all, where on earth does Locke keep coming up with these engaging, unique stories? And secondly - how long do I have to wait for the next book in the series?

I strongly recommend this book and award it 5 out of 5 stars.
