It's been 50 years since the Great Crash and what was once America is now a collection of enclaves, governed on the local level and only loosely tied together by the farce of a federal government. Catawba, one of the largest and most affluent enclaves in the southern states, is relatively stable and maintains a successful business of trade with nearby enclaves, including the...

I wasn’t sure at first on whether to request this book or not, but I’m glad I did! The story was interesting and how can you say no to a book with a cover like this one?
Enclave follows two characters : Kevin and Caleb. Kevin risk his life to help others but when he gets caught he gets an assignment. Bring people with unique gifts like Caleb to the government or he and his mother will be hanged. Kevin refuses right away which I get but I think the story line could have been much more suspenseful ...more
In the book Enclave, author Thomas Locke writes about life 50 years after the Great Crash. America is now controlled by different regional factions. Caleb and Kevin become leaders of a group of refugees known as Adepts who have special abilities. While I like Thomas Locke this book was a bit confusing at times. And the book just ended with the start of a battle.
However, I do look forward to the continuing adventures. I would recommend this book! I received a copy of this e-book from the publishe ...more
This books takes elements of science fiction and dystopian themes and combines them into an original story. I have not read anything quite like it before. I am hoping that this is the first in a series and that the story will continue to develop.
I really struggled in reading this book. I kept reading small pieces and trying to make all the story lines coincide, but it was a lot of work and slow. I really wanted to love this book. The synopsis sounded amazing, but in the end it was a lot of work, a lot of confusion and very little fun in reading it.
I received an advanced reader copy in exchange for a fair review.
Infused with action-packed scenes, fascinating characters, and a science fiction scenario that seems like it could burst into reality, "Enclave" is an intensely addictive novel from Thomas Locke. Fortunately, I knew what I was getting myself in for when I picked up this novel, so I'd already set aside the hours I'd need to read this one from start to finish, time that flew by all too quickly as I was drawn into the world of enclaves and refugees and people with inexplicable special powers. The h ...more
It was like The Last Ship meets X-Men while being tinged with the Wild West!
That sounds awesome, right? Well, it was awesome! Dystopian and post-apocalyptic story lovers, Enclave needs to be added to your TBR immediately!
The story is told from the point of view of Caleb and Kevin, two very different men thrown together by hate and power-grabs from the mongrels welding their unlawful position against everyone, especially those with special secrets.
Sorry, no spoilers. Hehe!

Science Fiction is not a genre into which I typically delve nor do I find it pleasurable to read. I do, however, enjoy the writings of Davis Bunn and thought I would venture into this story by his pseudonym, Thomas Locke.
Venturing into the future by 50 years into an American society deplete of rule of law, defined states, and society completely rife of any sense of fairness or democracy, the story presented a plethora of characters who venture out of their geographically defined area called an E ...more
