Great debut, love the book.,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Bitter Seeds (Hardcover)When I first heard about this book, there was a dearth of information on it, but I took a chance based on the description that Amazon provided. Come on, Nazi's, Mutants, Warlocks, it's like a geek's dream to see all of these genre's coming together.
By the time the first chapter came to a close, I was hooked. The characters were engaging and the pace of the book was just right. One of the issues that I could see when writing about these characters, is that it would be so easy to lend too much weight to the precog, and thereby ruining the rest of the book. But I felt that the story expanded just right and can't wait to read the rest of the series.
My one criticism, is that there seems to be a lot of German titles in the book ascribing different ranks and divisions in the army, and while I know it lends itself to realism, it got to be distracting at times, as I'd have to flick back to remind myself what a certain word meant. Definitely not a deal breaker, but something that bothered from time to time.
I generally read 2 or 3 books at the same time, but I will say that this held my attention the whole time until the end.
