Works for me.
This story of course picks up where The Red King left off.... so I'd avoid reading further into my review if you haven't read that book. This book involves the previous characters and introduces a few new ones. One of the new characters' story actually comprises about 1/2 of this read.
The writing is good and fast paced. I find these types of books good to read for an hour or so to unplug my brain before I go to sleep. I have criticisms of this book, but they are pretty minor.
1. This book is more cliched than the first one with the addition of new story elements that, just like 'zombie apocalypse' are cookie cutter rip-offs of other well covered topics in mainstream fiction. I won't give much of anything away, but when the author starts to use a crutch called 'Skynet' (and actually calls it that), you know he's not trying hard enough.
2. It's pretty nit-picky of me I know, but I get annoyed when someone with Nick Cole's military background goes 'Hollywood' with some of the fighting action. Sound suppressors (silencers) on weapons don't go "puff puff", they make a lot of noise... just less than a weapon that doesn't have them. Similarly he wants us to know that he understands the difference between a weapon magazine and a 'clip'... except he really doesn't since he thinks that 1911s and other handguns take clips (hint, they don't). Small stuff but kind of annoying nonetheless.... perhaps living in California behind enemy lines it's been too long since he fired any real weapons.
3. The first book read like it had been professionally edited. Pretty much zero typographical or grammatical errors. This book is littered with them. I understand that self-published Amazon authors probably don't have paid editors but I would think with the amount of time this book has been out some of the more egregious typos would have been corrected in a revision.
All in all though, this was an entertaining read that was worth my time. Looking forward to the next book in the series.
