Convergence of Time
Exploring the desert to avoid family guests, Gavin Clark steps into an invisible web and finds himself caught in a world where time and space are compressed. Dinosaurs and other dangerous creatures of past eras roam parts of the land. Groups of Earth’s people from the past, present, and future come together in a melting pot of humanity, thrown into a new world without the advantages of modern technology and the comforts of their former communities. People age at a very slow rate. No children are born. And more importantly, no one has found a way out. Will Gavin find the key to escaping this world to be home with his wife and children again? Journey with him through a maze of peculiar people, shocking circumstances, and unpredictable events as he sets on out a quest to find the answers to getting home.

Convergence of Time by Layne Walker is one of those books that makes you think: ‘Oh no, I’m already close to the end…I don’t want it to end!’ I liked the book so much that I had to check out what else the author has written so far (not enough!).
What is it about? Gavin, a rather normal, intelligent guy, takes a trip to the desert because he doesn’t feel like going to church with his family. What he did not expect was to run into some sort of invisible spider web and end up in a different world. He slowly has to accept that he is now in a world that is perfectly square, surrounded by an ocean and filled with people and creatures from different time periods and countries. Unlike others, Gavin simply doesn’t stop asking questions: what is this world? Why are the people there? Is it God’s plan? Have they been kidnapped by aliens? But asking questions isn’t always welcome.
Convergence of Time by Layne Walker is a book that is difficult to put down. The writing is very good, the characters form in front of your mental eye and you get drawn into that weird, fascinating world. I wondered what it would be like to live in that world and whether I would want to leave it again or whether I’d be like Gavin. It is fantasy and adventure in one book that makes you dream and entertains you. I couldn’t ask for more in a book!

I love this type of story and Layne did a great job. I am familiar with his style and he never fails to keep me interested in his characters and plot. I look forward to reading more of his books in this genre.
