Book Description

A man with no past

Nobody knows much about Zeb Carter. He doesn’t do romance, avoids friendships… and when asked about his work, says he is a security consultant.

A man on a mission

The ex-Special Forces operative has seen it all before. But when he witnesses barbaric acts in the Congo, he can’t simply walk away. Plagued by the scale of the unspeakable crimes and its victims, Zeb breaks the rules - both his own, and those whom he works for - by seeking his own brand of justice.

A man with no future

With a maverick intelligence analyst, Broker, along for the ride, Zeb finds himself up against an adversary who is more than a match for his skills.

From the rainforests of the Congo to the concrete jungle of New York, Zeb enters a shadowy world – a world where he alone is interested in justice. Everyone else wants the affair buried… and Zeb along with it.

The Reluctant Warrior, Book Two in the Warrior series, is now published and is available at a special price of 0.99c/0.99p till the 21st of September.

humor and family relationships involved adding to the plot.

The main character & his friends have unique traits used for

4.0 out of 5 stars Rogue Six, now Rogue Three May 14, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The story starts with Zeb Carter, ex-Special Forces and now private military contractor, in the DRC (Democratic Republic of Congo). He ends up at the village of Luvungi and witnesses terrible atrocities committed against women and children by a group of men he calls the Rogue Six. After killing three of the group, he follows the other three to the U.S. to avenge the villagers.

Carter is a bigger-than-life hero. Able to kill with all kinds of weapons including his bare hands, he tracks the monstrous trio including their leader Carsten Holt and asks for help along the way from friends with specialized skill sets, not only to help find and kill the Rogue Three but also to help protect family and friends. I especially liked Broker, tech genius, and young boy Rory.

Fast paced, full of action and colorful characters, I enjoyed this thrill-a-minute revenge themed thriller.

I do wish the backstories of the characters had been developed more. And the book could have used a bit more editing for punctuation and word usage.

But if you like thrillers or adventure stories, I think you will like this first in a series by author Patterson.

4.0 out of 5 stars Way to go, The warrior May 15, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Huge thanks to the author for sharing the copy of “The Warrior” with me and I can honestly say that it was pure fun reading this book. If you have noticed or haven’t noticed the book’s sales line tells that , “The warrior” is for all those who is a jack reacher fan and that particular line stuck with me because to sell a book to me you just have to say the magic word “jack reacher” and I m naturally when I read that the character is going to satiate the thriller and action bones as good as jack reacher thriller , I was up for the game and went on to finish the book in one go without leaving my eyes and mind and partly also because the book was not a bulky one

Lets talk about the book

I m guessing that this is the first book from the author so for a first time writer he has definitely shown a great deal of craftsmanship as the plot is good, engaging and addictive for what I can say from my experience. The author has tried to maintain secrecy around the central character, Zeb which is at times irritating because you cannot get close to this character but at the same time, it is like a mystique aura that keeps building the anticipation to know what and how the central character is going to react next which helps a lot in improving your interest in the plot. You practically get detailed insights into all characters except Zeb whose life and persona continues to be a mystery throughout.

For the sake of being pedantic, I would say that the book do have a slight problem with the language as in my opinion there is an extended use of colloquial language than the written language which is kind of new for me. But once the story springs open to its full glory you kind of get engrossed in it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great adventure but much more...Makes you think.. April 29, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really liked this book,great characters and storyline,I am sitting here wiping my tears after finishing the book! The main character is a private,ex-military man,who has worked for 'no name government agencies', doing whatever is needed to keep our country safe. But when he sees some morally disturbing things done while at work in another country,he shows us that you never have to just let go of something that upsets you,even if done far from your home! You come to know each character and really care what happens to them,wanting badly to see all wrongs righted yourself! This story is quite an adventure,and I recommend it to all,can't wait for this authors next work!
