About the Author

Author Jason Andrew Bond grew up in Oregon and currently lives in Washington State with his wife and son. He holds a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature from the University of Oregon and an MBA from the University of Colorado. Writing has been a lifetime dream, which–after many years lying dormant–has taken form in Hammerhead, his first novel. He is currently in the process of editing his second novel, and has begun to break ground on his third. Outside of writing and his family, martial arts is an important part of his life. At 18 years of age he entered an Aikido dojo for the first time, and has since trained in Jeet Kune Do, Tae Kwon Do, Shudokan Karate, Goshin Jutsu, and Brazillian Jiu-Jitsu.

I was skeptical about this book having 30 reviews and 5 stars, however after reading the first few pages I realized why it was rated so high. This book isn't your usual futuristic space battle drama, its a story first and science fiction second. By that I mean the author does an excellent job at blending technology of the near future in with a story that keeps you turning the page. He skips the in depth technobabble and tells you what you need to create an in depth mental picture of events and characters.

Ill be watching this author closely for future releases. Mr. Bond easily made his way to my top 5 e-book authors with this novel.

I decided to try this book out because of it having so many people praising it so highly. Personally I didn't get as much out of it as those who gave it five stars. As a self published work and a first novel the quality is actually quite high. However, while the story is entertaining, I personally enjoy more technically detailed sci-fi with larger scale battles. I thought this would have those elements but it was a misunderstanding I got from one of the reviews. The alien invasion happens before the novel takes place and only serves as background. While the misunderstanding is not a fault of the story it's important to mention. I also prefer more detailed characterization but I don't feel these quickly drawn characters are so much a fault as an intentional construction for fast paced and/or developement in the author's experience. The author is capable of showing quality and depth in a character as is evidenced by the main character. As the author developes I think we'll see more of that quality in more characters. If the author follows this book with a sequal in which a broad scale war occurred as is hinted at along with more in depth characterization I think I'd really enjoy it. If you like fast-pace with less emphasis on technology, then you'll probably be one of those 5 star reviewers. If not, this author may still be worth a look. I'm going to keep an eye on his future books.

This is a great read for those who love action packed, good versus evil, novels. The characters in this story are captivating. Very well reseached and written. Finally, a quality novel without the need for an R rating. Hope this is a first of a series. I would love to see this on the big screen ;-)

How do you take 2 or three action films worth of action and adventure and cram it into one book. Then get Hammerhead and you will see how its done. This book had me at hello. By the end of the first chapter, I had put aside another book I was reading and had to finish it. Jason Bond has managed to take fantastic sci fi settings, incredible action scenes and not lose his characters in it all. I highly recommend this book for anyone who likes sci fi.
Why are you still reading this? Go buy it! Now! I'm serious!

Just finished the book, and decided to update my review:
IF YOU DOMT HAVE THIS BOOK, I SUGGEST YOU GO OUT AND BUY IT!
The last 100 pages had me on the edge of my seat and glued to the pages. This book does not slow down at all, there are no boring sections that make you want to skip over, it is just go go go action! I don't want to give away anything from the book, but The ending was very well thought out and left me wanting more. I hope that there may be a sequel to this later down the road

OLD POST:
I just started this book so far and I have been pleasantly pleased so far! This book drags you in with a great plot. The work is very well written and has fantasitic visual elements that hwlp you escape into the authors story. I recommend this book to anyone who loves science fiction and suspenseful action packed. This book is a very good page turner that has you flying through the chapters. I haven't finished the book so I'm looking forward to the climax, and I will definitely update my review one I'm finished. Great job Mr. Bond!

I bought my copy on the spur of the moment, searching for something new to read before going to bed. Probably not one of my finest ideas... I found it very difficult to put down and turn off my bedside lamp. Fortunately I didn't have to go to work the next morning!
A good debut novel from a promising author. I'll definitely be keeping my eye out for new works by Mr. Bond.

I split most of my time between Fantasy books like The Dresden Files, the Sookie Stackhouse series, Martin, Jordan and Tolkien and Thrillers like Child, Grisham, Connelly and Baldacci- but I don't usually read a lot of Sci-Fi like Hammerhead. Preferences aside, I actually liked this book and burned through it in about two days.

My biggest compliment for the author is that, unlike some other books I have read, I was able to dive right in and get hooked within the first hour. Quite often I will try out a new book from an author I haven't read before and I have to get 50-100 pages into the book before I can decide whether or not it is going to be something that I am going to enjoy. Bond creates a good start, painting a world with characters and situations that, while new, are not alien and you find yourself quickly falling in.

For criticism, I would question some of the transitions in the plot later in the book- it seemed like the story wandered a bit off the rails toward the end of the book. To counter this however, I got hooked enough early on in the story, that I really didn't find myself caring overly much.

Overall, I had more fun with this book than I have with some of my other recent reads this summer. Well worth the $5.
