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.
