A highly enjoyable piece of military adventure that feels like the climax of the grimmest action movie ever filmed.
I have a theory about the man in black in 'The Pawn in the Portal.' I think it's Ravi Zacharias. Well, if he stayed an apologist, went entirely wacko-bonkers, and found a portal to a different dimension.
In all serious, the story shook me. I didn't have anything to say to anyone for hours after I finished it. What was Nick's thinking in writing it? Did he struggle with having the antagonist be a completely logical person, who was obviously a nutjob? I'll be honest: I struggled with the man in black, only because, if I wrote him, I'd feel like I was bringing my readers away from the truth. Do you know what I mean? That's just me. I'm not saying anything about Nick.
I'm hesitant to even write a review. Conflicted? Is that the word? I don't know. It's not very often that escapist, genre fiction makes me think this deeply.
Brilliant story. Truly. When I say it shook me, I mean it. The last book that shook me like that was Cormac McCarthy's 'The Sunset Limited.' I ain't shook too often, buddy. Well done.
Uplifting? No, I wouldn't say that. There are no puppies, or soft cuddly stuffed animals.
Just another damn good story.
I've read 6 books by Cole and he has become my favourite author but it was cheeky of him to charge for this. You kind of have to read it if you are into the series but it doesn't reveal much.
