This is a quite okay thriller/fantasy book from Greig Beck. It is a wee bit like Jaws on steroids. Big chark...check. Stuck on boat...check. Shark jumps onto boat...check. Shark wrecks boat...check. Shark...oh no, that would be a spoiler. Anyway, I quite liked it.
It took three books but finally all the setting up work seems to be done for the new story arc of The Frontiers Saga. The main event in this book should not really be much of a surprise for anyone given the title. What perhaps could be a bit of a surprise is that the rest of the story also advances quite a lot. There are plenty of things going on and the action is plentiful.
I have to say that I procrastinated a wee bit before starting to read this book. The title scared me somewhat.With that title I was afraid that things were going to make a turn for the worst and the book to be a bit sad. Well, the shit did hit the fan big time but it was not as bad as I thought and the book was great. This is probably the most combat filled book in the series. It is almost non-stop action from start to finish.
I liked this book better than the previous book in the series. I felt it read more like a single book than a series of short stories even though the book is very much a series of different monster hunting stories tied together. It was much fun to read this one.
Independence Day: Resurgence is pretty much what I expected. Actually, given all the negative reviews floating around it is almost better than what I expected.
Duel in the Dark is a good start of a new series, Blood on the Stars, from Jay Allan. It is a action filled story which essentially is a prelude to an all out war. It has good world building, enjoyable characters and plenty of action.
