Publisher's Summary

Grace Hardwick's dad is a science fiction writer who makes his living destroying the world. When Grace decides to go away for her first year of college her dad, Robert, can't help but think of all of the potential ways that society could collapse and strand his daughter hundreds of miles from home. Then, near the end of her freshman year, it happens. Like a scene from one of Robert's books, coordinated terror attacks take place at dozens of locations around the country - including on the campus of Grace's university.
Grace and her father barely have time for a single rushed phone call before they lose signal. In that call, Robert reminds his daughter of the key he gave her when she left for school - the key that she constantly wears around her neck. She doesn't know what it opens. She doesn't know where the engraved numbers will lead her. All she knows is that her dad is not the type to let her go hundreds of miles from home with no backup plan.
With her roommate in tow, Grace embarks on a treacherous journey that may lead her home or may lead her right into the path of another stranded traveler - a disturbed gamer who sees nothing but opportunity in a world that now closely resembles that of his favorite video games.

Female lead, still sexist.

The concept is good. The set up is believable. Here I was with a female lead, a good story base, only to be disappointed by poor writing, very average narration and a girl a Ly surviving because her dad did it all for her. Ok fine. But then then she is continually mansplaned to, treated like a little girl, and has no real confidence in herself. What she really wants is to be looked after by men. I found it very erksome.

Don't stop Now!

I think Franklin Horton is one of the best modern story tellers. his pace and development is right on. I throughly enjoy the universe he has created.

the borrowed world was told in 3 books. I think, locker nine has more story to tell. I hope he keeps going with Grace's story.

thanks Franklin for this great story.

Well written, very real, and right now.

What made the experience of listening to Locker Nine the most enjoyable?

It has to be a combination of two things. A well written story line, and a narrator whose voice and pacing are so well matched to the authors work.

Have you listened to any of Kevin Pierce’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Kevin never fails to deliver, and once again he places us right there IN the story.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No laughter, no crying, but I had to stop listening for a few days. I began to listen to this audiobook a day before the National Weather Service decided a major hurricane was going to make a pass at the East Coast of the United States. I was well into the book as I shifted my focus from standard household chores to making preparations for what was forecast to be a Category 4 Hurricane quite possibly blowing right through my neighborhood. With the audiobook in my ears I was out driving from store to store collecting the things I knew I was going to need to survive the storm, and Kevin Pierce was reminding me of things I might have forgotten. It was surreal. Making my way through a giant warehouse store along with hundreds of obviously worried people all moving in a controlled panic was more than a little unsettling. I was preparing for a real life disaster.... but, I was in a Franklin Horton Novel, with Kevin Pierce as my guide at the same time. The story is present day. The characters are so well fleshed out and real, and Kevin's voice puts us right there in the story. It all became just a little too much.... and I had to stop listening for a few days. When the real life danger was past, and I turned my attention to cleaning up the damage, I returned to listening... And the novel was a welcome diversion from the task at hand.

Any additional comments?

I thoroughly enjoyed this audiobook.

Love it

If your family like mine is not into prepping, give them this audiobook to listen to.
This is what I intend to do.

Exceptional.

I hold Franklin Horton in the highest regard and have listened to his full collection. This next instalment is a fine support to the Borrowed World collection and I personally can not wait for the next instalment.
