Format: Kindle Edition
This is a very good thriller with adventure, suspense, challenges of
true gruesome atrocities occurring verus secret political cover ups,
kidnapping and some history of mining in the Congo. There is some
humor and family relationships involved adding to the plot.
The author is able to weave together past events into the present
smoothly and without difficulty. The twists & turns within the story
keep you holding your breathe while sitting on the edge of your
seat.
The main character & his friends have unique traits used for
survival. These skills are exhibited throughout the story.
Zebediah Carter, an ex-Special Force is a private military
contractor sent into the Democratic Republic of Congo. He is
about to wrap up his observation mission when he comes to a
village where US ex-military men are committing gruesome
atrocities. Carter calls this group “ The Rogue Six “. Even though
his handler tells him to ignore what is happening, Carter intervenes
taking out three of the six.
Back in the states with orders to let the other “Rogue Three” alone,
Carter digs into their whereabouts. Circumstance arise that Carter
needs to handle with his crew.
What a astonishing ending to a good thriller!!
Don’t miss reading this book.
I received this ebook as a gift from the author. My opinion is my
own. Thank you Ty for a good read.

This book simply was not believable and, in addition, was poorly written and edited. It was a significant disappointment and a challenge to complete. The only reason that I didn't rate it one star was that there was a moderate amount of suspense and a bit of a twist at the end.

I rarely read a self-published/indie author. My experiences have been bad and the books were worse. I had read many positive reviews of Ty Patterson's The Warrior and decided to give it a shot. I can honestly say that it is one of the best written indie novels I have read. It is not perfect by any means but it is better written than other novels I have read by "published" authors during this past year.

Plot summary

The protagonist, Zeb Carter, is a security consultant with a past shrouded in shadow. Zeb witnessed atrocities around the world but an event in the Congo has come back to haunt his memories and aims to take his down. With help from the Broker, a man who trades in information, Zeb works to bait and trap a killer while his prey is working to do the same to Zeb.

My Take

This novel is a thriller of the Action/Adventure type. In my opinion, this novel would appeal to fans of James Rollins, Steve Berry and Matthew Reilly. I would say that the authors writing style is closer to Reilly than the first two. The book is short and the action is, at times, frantic.

Like Reilly, the author spends more time developing the action and moving the story than he does developing the character. There is some character development but it is rather minor. Unlike Reilly, the cast of characters is much smaller and Carter is a lone gun character.

The author does not waste space. He focuses on what is necessary, avoids filler and gets to the point. Generally, this would be a major drawback in my review. Fortunately for the author, when I comes to action/adventure, it put those preferences aside.

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.

Zebediah Carter, a private military contractor (i.e mercenary), witnesses gruesome crimes while on mission in the Congo. He sets out to kill those responsible for the acts, leading his manhunt back to New York. His search leads him to a politically connected enemy and a ruthless killer. The conflict rises and the stakes are high, developing into a fast-paced action sequence that is the highlight of the book.

Patterson has a good grasp on the thriller genre, particularly action sequences, buried secrets, and political tension. Unfortunately, The Warrior is too short for the tension to properly develop or for the plot to become particularly twisty. The story is straightforward, developing much as the reader would expect. Early in the book, Zeb Carter witnesses horrible atrocities and then sets out on a vendetta to kill those responsible. It leaves the reader wondering what his motivation is, but not strongly enough to actually expect the backstory that is revealed at the end of the work.

The Warrior is written from the third person perspective, but in the present tense. It's an unusual combination that seems to work pretty well for action sequences, but is quite distracting during character development and dialogue. Much of the prose repeats "he is..." and conflicts with dialogue with the same words. A lack of contractions in dialogue further adds to the choppy feel.

The Warrior could be a nice flick if it was developed further and refined through a few editing passes.
