Primordial Threat: A few issues but a nice read nonetheless.

The characters were well done, the dialog were well done and there was generally enough going on on each page to retain my interest. The author is a relatively new one in the beginning of his career as far as I understand it and, after reading this book, I think I will definitely keep a lookout for any future books from him. Continue reading Primordial Threat: A few issues but a nice read nonetheless.

Hominid – I like the author’s Belial series better

The book blurb for this book sounded reasonably interesting and I have liked the Belial series from this author so I though I would give this one a try. Sadly enough I found this book to be fairly mediocre. The writing itself is good enough but the story is rather predictable and quite frankly somewhat boring. Continue reading Hominid – I like the author’s Belial series better

The Belial Search -Good adventure but too much political preaching

This is a good adventure story but there are really too much political references to the current pet subjects in some areas. I really try to stay out making comments in the political arena but I have to say that I was disappointed with this instalment as it felt like either the author was trying to make a statement or she was just using the current trends to garner support for the book. […] Continue reading The Belial Search -Good adventure but too much political preaching

Kraken Rising – Very good semi-supernatural high tech thriller.

I found this to be a very enjoyable semi-supernatural high tech thriller. Alex Hunter is back in his role as a super-hero style elite agent and he is thrown into a mission that brings him back to one of his old “hunting grounds”. There are a few threads in Alex Hunter’s history that are tied together in this book and, at least, one rather interesting new one that is begun. […] Continue reading Kraken Rising – Very good semi-supernatural high tech thriller.

Hammer of God – More of a short story but fun read nonetheless.

This is more of a short story than a “real” book. It is quite fun read but it does not really advance the story very much. It is pretty fast paced but lacks a lot of the detail and the mystery suspense of the full books in the series. There is plenty of action (of course) and it has the usual supernatural and mystery elements that we are used to in this series but it is definitely somewhat predictable and it did feel a bit more like reading a comic book than a full fledged entry in the Alex Hunter series. […] Continue reading Hammer of God – More of a short story but fun read nonetheless.
