This book has succeeded where all others have failed - I have been moved to pen a quick review.
I made it to the 24% mark as shown on my Kindle before giving up.
The plot. A poorly written transposition of Americas current oil wars and invasions of middle eastern countries into a galactic scenario, plus some Somalian piracy, with a sprinkling of Ninja assassins thrown in. Hell - The villain is even called Saddam!
Brothers meet after a year or two apart and dont recognise each other? Really? They do have a feeling that they have met before somewhere though, so I suppose that's something in their favour - although I personally certainly wouldn't employ someone who cant recognise his own brother to rescue a VIP from kidnappers! I could wind up with one of the captors in my guest suite by mistake!
It was obviously written for the 14 -15 yr old teenager in mind, so I do take SOME responsibility for the purchase and have given it one star accordingly.
The book may improve further on - if so I'm going to miss it.
I definately paid $4.98 too much for this!
