Again, like book 7, Glen Tate writes a SHORT BOOK and under deliveres.....
on April 15, 2014
<spoiler alert>. While books 1 to 6 were awesome,7 was as dismal, short and badly written as it gets with dead end plot lines, incongruent stories all over the place, book 8 is 'almost' mono plot. All Grant all the time, with a few divergent stories. It also,like many of the different books, it under delivers at the end. Its SHORT. Its a long chapter for $9.99. There should be at least 5 of these to make a real book. The other way it under delivers is that while book is titled WAR <Spoiler Alert>, and the 17th actually deploys, by the end of the book they have not even fired ONE SHOT !!! So we have to WAIT until book 9, before the 17th even reaches Olympia and gets into the action. Sorry Glen, but us Tom Clancy and Brad Thor and Vince Flynn readers really expect a lot more from a book. I understand that this might not be your current model but this is feed back from Me to You and the Community. When your books are finally done and you make one giant book, it'll be a great read. Probably one of the best, but I don't like paying $9.99 for a chapter. You should do an A/B test and a survey to see if you'd actually get more money from $5.00 books than $9.99 books. Despite my misgivings about books 7 and 8, I still had to buy them. I had to find out what happens, yet I read the book over 2 nights.
