This is what you've come to expect from Conroe. Chris and co are facing down larger and larger threats, with very few allies to aid them. The characters continue to evolve, the world of the Demon Accords grows more and more fleshed out with each book, and the plot is more than enough to carry us through. Another excellent entry.
Book before Forced Ascent, Executable, introduced new characters, and only had Chris and Tania at the end, which was great because by then I was getting tired of them and same things happening under different names.
I got excited and thought Mr. Conroe went back to first two books, away from formula, but unfortunately Forced Ascent went right back to all the mediocre, boring and same writing.
There is action and few good scenes, so I am giving it three stars. Not worth the price, writing is very mediocre, this is a book to kill time with, so getting it for 1.99 would have been more appropriate to the quality of it.
The politicians are all idiots. Instead of embracing a very big hero that has a lot of pull with the media, they crap all over him. They attempt to kidnap his god daughter MULTIPLE times and there isn't media frenzy crapping all over the president and his advisers? They tell the media he is a terrorist and then change their views? They tell the media he is AWOL during the Halloween activity and then change their story as "we were helping them recover"... the list is pretty long and it drove me crazy. I mean the political mud slinging in real life has had FAR less ammunition. I bought the 8th book, but I haven't read it yet... but if the president is re-elected, if the adviser doesn't have to take up waitress for all the BS she fed him as advise, if many many powerful ELECTED officials don't start acting SMART, then I think the 8th book will be my last. In addition, if Chris and his group don't take this opportunity to destroy these political mental midgets in the media, then I am going to have to categorize this series into "ridiculous land" and move on to something else.
Seriously, this book left me angry. I don't buy or read books to get pissed off...

It is interesting how the author blames the Large Hadron Collider as the source of supernatural ills.Given the pseudo-science babble about particle physics you sense an incomplete understanding of science but that is only to be expected in a book about magic.
I have to admit that I haven't read the books where Chris is not the 1st person narrator as I have a bad habit of getting frustrated when characters I have built such an attachment to take a back seat in their series. Therefore I will just have to somehow live with the wait until the next Chris book comes out, God's Hammer.
Overall if you like this series then you won't be disappointed in this book. John Conroe writes consistently entertaining novels and more than this, the quality of his pros improves with every outing.
Another great read, can't wait for the next!
I cannot wait to see what Chris gets into next. He is getting better and better, his team is getting better and better, and the action never stops. The last hero this deliciously capable was Sven from David Gunn's Deaths Head.
The only way I survive between releases is indulging myself in rereading this great series.
