Lenn Corey’s A Thousand Days And One Hour is a science fiction story with a touch of fantasy. Ceejay and his son, Dave, are at odds with one another when Ceejay cannot sign his son’s driver's license application. Toby, Santos, and Chloe come to Dave’s help in convincing his father to sign the application. In celebration, they meet that evening for dinner. Meanwhile, Aleece and her daughter are moving into their new house. Aleece, Codie, and Aunt Jackie go to dinner to face their past. The following day, Ceejay and his team are outside working on their project when a lightning storm begins. Aleece, Jackie, and Codie arrive at the facility and assist the group. Suddenly, a blinding light flashes and the eight people awaken, separated, in a new world. Everyone’s determination to be reunited shows they are in danger beyond their imagination. Will all eight survive their ordeal?
A Thousand Days and One Hour contains so much suspense, I couldn’t stop reading. I liked the relationship between Chloe and Santos. Their laid-back manner in stressful situations made the story's pace flow easily. The vivid imagery Lenn Corey used made every scene easy to envision. Oddly, an evil character from the start, named Silent One, captivated my interest. His intense turmoil seemed to prevent him from becoming fully sinister. I felt disappointed with Jackie’s apparent disregard for Codie’s warnings, but several changes in the plot eased my mind. While I considered this a science fiction story, I liked the fantasy aspects just as much. The growth of every person was easy to identify. My enjoyment of A Thousand Days and One Hour intensified with the unpredictable twists in the story. I foresee a sequel but this is easily a standalone book.
