Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

A family outing in which a man is celebrating his wife’s birthday at a fancy restaurant with the couple’s children turns tragic when Chinese gunmen abduct the group. Four years later, the president of the U.S. begins acting strangely, and an enemy begins to plot an overthrow. The murder of a Cambridge professor and the growing threat of war between the U.S. and China have the world on edge. An incident in the South China Sea gets Alex Hawke involved, and he will not stop until he can end the madness, even if it means sneaking into China and staging an impossible rescue. Hawke is one of those heroes whose arrogance makes him a bit hard to admire, but he clearly wears a white hat. The sheer scope of this high-concept thriller, and the well-placed shocks throughout, make it Bell’s best effort to date. A perfect tale for fans of plot-driven action-adventure and, especially, for the Cussler crowd. --Jeff Ayers

Review

“Hawke is . . . strong, shrewd and savvy, with an aplomb not seen since James Bond. In other words, Bond, eat your heart out . . . there’s a new spy in town.” (NPR)

“Alex Hawke is the new James Bond. Ted Bell is the new Clive Cussler.” (James Patterson)

“A secret agent who takes you into the danger zone with a ballsy wit that had me hooked.” (Vince Flynn, bestselling author of The Last Man)

“Ted Bell puts a capital A in adventure.” (Madison County Herald)

“Bell knows how to build a plot that moves at breakneck speed.” (Richmond Times-Dispatch)

“China seeks to rule the world in bestseller Bell’s entertaining eighth novel featuring MI6 super-agent Alex Hawke . . . this is a thrilling ride.” (Publishers Weekly)

“The sheer scope of this high-concept thriller, and the well-placed shocks throughout, make it Bell’s best effort to date. A perfect tale for fans of plot-driven action-adventure and, especially, for the Cussler crowd.” (Booklist)

“Near the end, a villain exclaims, ‘Then bring me the head of Alexander Hawke!’ Really, there’s no need. When we finish enjoying Warriors, just bring us Hawke’s next lively adventure.” (Kirkus Reviews)

Warriors, [is] impossible to put down. . . . It’s really expansive, great reading. If you like spy, espionage, mystery-thriller stuff, you cannot get a better book.” (Rush Limbaugh)

More About the Author

My life has entered a brand new and exciting chapter. In addition to publishing a new thriller, PHANTOM, next March, I have been elected a Visiting Scholar at Cambridge University, UK. I hold this position at the University's Department of Politics and International Studies. We are a primary resource for the Intelligence Community as well as high level government connections. I was also honored to be named Writer In Residence at Sydney Sussex College here at Cambridge. My college was founded in 1596. I am working on a new novel, the 7th in the Alex Hawke series of spy thrillers. The new thriller will be rooted in Cambridge espionage traditions (the university is over 800 years old) and deal with the looming threat of China's ascent to world dominance. I also plan to write a 3rd installment in my series of historical novels for young people, the Nick McIver Time Adventures published by St. Martins. My Alexander Hawke novels are published by Harper/Collins. Life here at Cambridge is extraordinary, as well it should be as it was recently voted the #1 university in the world. There is certainly no lack of intellectual stimulation and even the most casual conversations with fellow scholars are a wonder to me. As are the amazing architecture and ancient customs. I often feel I'm living in a Harry Potter movie.

WARRIORS, will be published on APRIL 1ST, 2014. Set against a backdrop of increasing tensions with China in the Pacific, the insane actions of China's surrogate, North Korea, and the abduction of America's premier weapons designer,
Hawke must destroy a new undersea weapons system deployed by China in order to avert global catastrophe. Hawke, Stokely Jones, and Chief Inspector Ambrose Congreve, must also solve a puzzling and sadistic murder at Cambridge University in England that is somehow tied to the Chinese threats of world war.

I couldn't put this book down waiting to read the next part.
John Bird
I thought there was a little too much background story telling and not enough plot.
Dale Baker
Warriors is another terrific book in Ted Bell's Hawke series.

I enjoy these books as a harmless diversion. The stories aren't first class but they are fun. But oh my gosh it is like 10 different people wrote this book alternating chapters and had the plot in common but no editing. Phrases, character descriptions, background information is repeated over and over as if someone was afraid a reader might pick up the book mid-chapter and need some catching up, or go into a coma between chapters and need to start over. Hawke lives at Hawkesmoor, Congreve's best friend is Hawke, Hawke oozes charm, etc., etc., etc.,. Got it, check, got it, etc., etc., etc. 30 minutes with a decent editor would tighten this thing up nicely, but as it stands it is distracting how poorly this book was edited. Still enjoyed it though....shame on me.

I think the thing I enjoy most about Ted Bell's Alex Hawke novels is the sense of balance. It's there in the characters, the emotions, the plot threads, and the pacing. If you're like me, you come for the action and the adventure, but it's all the other elements that keep you reading each page closely, rather than just skimming head for the next 'big' moment.

With Warriors we get more of that deliberately careful balance. Family (both intimate and extended) plays a significant role this time out. It begins with a family dinner, a birthday present, and a roadside abduction of Bill Chase, his wife, and their two children. Captured by the Chinese, Bill is tortured and tormented, forced to put his military genius to work against the Western world for the sake of his family. It continues with the relationships between Alex and his son, as well as between father, son, and Nell, the governess from Scotland Yard. There are equal doses or sorrow and happiness there, mixed in with the difficult realities of protecting a child who presents a prime opportunity for striking at Alex himself. It even extends to the villains of the piece, General Sun-Yat Moon and his daughters (Jet, Li, and Chyna), all of whom have a complicated relationship with Alex. Theirs are relationships of love and hate, emotions powerful enough to push the world to the brink of nuclear war.

With so much raw humanity to the novel, it's quite a surprise to find the technological aspects just as strong. There's a highly advance fighter jet designed to deliver Alex to his Chinese contact, and a pair of equally advanced missiles designed to prevent him from making that meet. There's an entirely new class of submarine here, far more dangerous and more chilling than anything fans have read before.

New York Times Bestselling Author, Ted Bell, delivers with the eighth novel in the Alex Hawke Series: Warriors. The characters we have come to know and love are thrust into a new conflict with an old adversary. Alex Hawke is back with his motley crew of friends to thwart the enemy’s plans. It’s a tough assignment that spans continents.
An American scientist, along with his family, is captured and thrown into a van off the streets of Georgetown in 2009. Present day, Kathleen Chase and her children are rumored to still be in a North Korean labor camp, while her husband, American Scientist and Nobel laureate, Dr. William Chase is being forced to cooperate with General Sun-Yat Moon of China. General Moon has devised a horrifying plan to use the American’s knowledge against his home country. The product is a fleet of Centurion Submarines more lethal than any sub fabricated before.
It just so happens that Alex Hawke has had a run in with one of General Moon’s daughters in the past. General Moon hasn’t forgotten and would like to exact revenge on his daughter’s behalf. Chyna Moon has the cold blooded nature of her father, and has unusual weapons of choice…ravens. Let’s just say she lets the birds do the dirty work for her. Alex’s longtime friend, Ambrose Congreve, is tasked with trying to trap The Raven at her own game.
Bell isn’t afraid to challenge our emotions in this novel. We lose some beloved characters in the fight this go around. I was pleased to see Bell show some vulnerability with the characters. He explores how they deal with love, loss, and the uncertain future.
Alex Hawke and his band of brothers come together once again to save the world from global anarchy. There are some bumps, bruises, and tears along the way…but boy is it worth the ride.

I've been reading the Alex Hawke series since Pirate and have enjoyed them, since they generally had decent (if essentially unbelievable) plots, mainly because the various characters were interesting. However, it looks like the author had a difficult time coming up with anything for this one that made any sense. The various story lines were confused and hard to follow. Frankly, Hawke might as well become some sort of demi-god, since he appears essentially invincible and unaging, despite being shot, tortured and beat up so many times in the series. At least Fleming had Bond showing some scars and depression after the things he went through.

I think Bell needs to retire Hawke. He phoned this one in.

The thing I love best about this book is the sense of balance in the story. The characters, emotions, plot, twists, pacing, etc. Are wonderful! This is my first Ted Bell novel but it will NOT be my last. This one deals with a kidnapping of Bill Chase's wife and two kids. It had a wonderful balance between family. This was a great fast read even though it is almost 500 pages. The author knows how to tell a story that will grip its reader till the last page. And although I have not read anything about the other 7 books in the series I didn't feel like I missed to much. Although I will deff. be going back and reading those in the coming months.
