Review

"If you like Tom Clancy, you'll like PRIMAL. It bristles with authenticity because the guy who wrote it used to do it for real." —Matthew Reilly, author of Ice Station, Scarecrow, and The Five Greatest Warriors

"Every book in the PRIMAL series is packed with fast-paced special ops action. The heroes are bad asses, the women are hot, and the bad guys always deserve exactly what PRIMAL unleashes on them. I would expect nothing less from an author who's been around the block once or twice with elite combat units." —Jack Murphy, author of Reflexive Fire, Target Deck, and Direct Action and the managing editor of SOFREP.com

As I look around, I see almost 60 5-star reviews for PRIMAL Vengeance. You got to admit, either Jack has many many friends, or there may actually be something here. I will tell you what, this guy can write. As several posters have noted, the action is very real, the weapons are very real, and very up-to-date. Jack writes beliveable characters, both good and bad. This is the 3rd PRIMAL book I have read and I have enjoyed them all. The characters are tough ex-special forces type guys and gals. They are deadly and they know their craft. But they are human too, with feelings and each has their own back story. Reading what the character Bishop had to go thru was like watching a typical Die Hard movie. Bruce gets beaten up, but comes out winning in the end, as does poor ole Bishop.

This is no A-Team tv show where bullets fly and cars crash and no one dies. The PRIMAL books feature adult action which at times can be brutal, but not over the top. I think what makes Jack's writing stand apart is that he writes like we (the public) would think the special force operatives would really act. No zombies, vampires, or Bond-like villians that live beneath a volcano or such in the PRIMAL books (and I love James Bond, both movies and films). I said this before, PRIMAL reminds me alot (in a very good way) of the Cinemax TV show called: Strike Back: The Complete First Season (Cinemax) (Blu-ray/DVD Combo + Digital Copy).

Jack hits another one out of the park. Great action throughout and a plot that is very plausible. The characters are interesting, and written in such a way that you feel emotionally attached to them. Another excellent part of this novel is the way you can go to internet with links embedded into the story to see and read exactly the type of weapons and vehicles used throughout the novel. This feature is great for those like me who were never in the military. The links are a great use of the new tablet/e-reader technology and show that Silkstone is at the forefront of using this technology to put the readers in the story. Readers of Brad Thor and Vince Flynn should check this story out. Love to see these Primal books made into movies. I know this is just the beginning of his writing career, but Jack Silkstone has already proven that he can write with the big boys.

Jacks background and passion for this genre of book comes through clearly on every page.

I was fortunate enough to be an independent test reader for this book and I read it pretty much in one sitting over a rainy Saturday.

If you like Tom Clancy, Bourne and anything of that ilk, then just grab this and dive straight in.

If you are looking for perfect prose and a slow unfolding story, then this is not the book for you. There is no particularly complex plot or politics, instead it is exactly what it claims to be, lots of primal urges and lots of satisfying vengeance. There are lots of toys that go bang, and I also like that the author has linked to external information on many of the non-standard weapons etc referenced in the book.

Not much more to say really, as I will not spoil the story. This is a quick light read that satisfies many of the same urges as a movie like the Expendables, Bourne etc etc. Go enjoy it.

I llike the Primal concept of a group of good guys who really take it to the bad guys. However, there is never any doubt that you are reading a work of fiction. I still remember reading "Red Storm Rising" by Clancy and, although I know it was fiction, it was so realistic I found myself waking in the morning wondering if there had been any developments while I slept. You don't get any of that with this book. The feats are too outlandish and the risks too large. Not to mention the logistics. I still thought it was a good read and would recomend it.

Stories narrated with precision, not overly wordy, not too clipped and with well developed characters, stories that pay close attention to technical and geopolitical details which suspend the disbelief and make them very plausible however unrealistic scenarios could be, those stories are not common and are generally reserved for Vince Flynn, Brad Thor and David Rollins because telling stories like those would require a talent on the narrator's part. Jack Silkstone, assuming this is a real name, has achieved what no one else could - he outwrote these guys. Vince and Brad and Dave, I mean. I wouldn't expect anything less from an ARSOC/JSOC intel man. Why would publishers not look into Jack's work we would never know. I personally, would pay 5 times as much for the privilege to read about the next PRIMAL op. Thank you!

*Contains Spoilers!*
Unlike Jack Silkstone in his closing remarks, I do not regard this as his best work yet. I personally liked the first one (Unleashed) best, it was fresh and imaginative. It also touched me when one of the team members bit the bullet in Unleashed.
Vengeance is repetitive, and the characters remain shallow.
The book starts off well, with good action at sea. From there, the plot alternates between action in the bush (freedom fighters score some and get hit) and brief interludes of retreating with some reflection, and from there the cycle repeats itself. No real development. The main characters (Garang, Jess, Yang) remain flat, bleak, uninteresting. I could not relate at all to Garang's motives (if there were any), neither for returning home nor for being Jess's boyfriend nor for turning traitor.
The technicalities of high-tech weaponry are not as interesting as they should be. They are reduced more or less to mentioning a certain gadget with a picture, accompanied by a link to the web with more info. While I like the idea of linking stuff (and yes, I AM one of those who do look up the gadgets on Wikipedia even without a link) I also like it when authors give us some basic idea of what any particular gadget can do and why it (technically) is cool. I missed the latter here.
What I positively disliked was the introduction of Matthew Reilly-style writing. Exclamation marks in action scenes are … lame. The writing does not get better by using them, it gets worse. I expect the story to be compelling, without being reminded to be surprised at any particular point of the description.
I also was disappointed with the (development?) of Aden's character.
