I've so far read the first two books in this series.
I like the ideas behind it.
However, the books both need serious editing. The author says the same thing over and over and the dialogue is atrocious. The characters need a lot of work and the plot and the way the character act are not consistent or believable at all.

As I said, I liked the ideas behind these books and am debating getting the third book to see what happens but the need for editing dramatically takes away from my enjoyment of this series.

So no one likes writing bad reviews so I am going to say this at the front this review will be spoiler free as the author on his website asks that people not spoil the book for others. I read the sample and really was not feeling the book but the synopsis kept pulling me back I like the whole revenge thing so I gave into my impulse and bought it.

Good
: The synopsis was great and did make me want to read.
: Editing was well done with few spelling mistakes. Not my strong point in seeing these tho.

Bad
: Flat characters none of them really made me laugh or even interested me that much. You never get a sense of them even when you are in there heads they just seem very one dimensional.
: The morality that the good guys profess to carry on seemed very disconnected with their reality. If someone is causing the death/misery to others and you do not stop them then you are as guilty as them especially if you are able to. In addition I just feel that given the pain some of them went through they would of at least wanted to prevent it from happening to others.
: The manipulation in this story are gigantic huge ones, I am never of fan of having things like that as it makes your main character seem pathetic and stupid. In addition the sheer amount of misery these manipulations caused supposedly for the better were on a par with what the bad guys were doing.
: The main plot device is very hard to get done right. And in this book you are left with a lot of plot holes and what ifs.
: First part of the book as way to many view points and drags on to long I get why this was done but it was unnecessary for this book.
: The money part was an aside that I felt could of been edited out as I did not feel it added to the story proper much at all.

Got this on the Free list when offered. I started reading, but found so much in the first five chapters that was just plain stupid I could not continue. SPOILERS FOLLOW:

First problem is the author's jumping back and forth in viewpoints of the opening attack on the Stark's, just plain redundant and idiotic. Second problem is in the methods used by the attackers. Super assassins from a hidden organization? Sorry, just characters of "powers" that use methods an assassin on their first kill would avoid. The third and biggest problem is the supposed "best security experts" in the world were the ones who designed the fortress. I haven't been doing security design for over 20 years, but even I could come up with a better one in less than a few hours; let alone come up with better points of attack than the author uses by the supernatural assassins.

Sorry, I usually do not write reviews when I come across a bad book. However, this one simply makes me wonder how such bad stories get published.

Characters I cannot empathize with making decisions that don't make sense with an inadequate understanding of technology. This book sounded interesting with many 5 stars ratings but turned out to be childish and with poor internal consistency. Look elsewhere for a book worth reading.

This is science fiction written without the benefit of a good understanding of basic science. Or perhaps the author *does* have a good grasp of current science, but either cannot trust himself to communicate it effectively to a lay reader base, or simply cannot believe that his audience is capable of comprehending it? This 1st book was free for download, and I only barely managed to convince myself to read the whole book after the 1st several chapters because I'd already purchased the rest of the trilogy, anticipating I would like the novel based upon the Amazon description and an intriguing cover. Rarely has the old adage, "Don't judge a book by its cover" been more appropriate a warning, even though this 1st title was free.

I *did* read the 1st 4 books, 3 of them as Nook books. That earns them at least 2 stars from me, since I am reserving my 1 star reviews for titles I couldn't force myself to finish. Books 1 and 4 are the most poorly-executed of the 4. I simply don't understand all the wonderful 4 and 5 star reviews of works so light on science and so heavy on fiction and fantasy, and burdened with such large flaws of fact and voice. But I'll guess that the creative ideas behind the work and perhaps a poor understanding of basic scientific concepts allowed them to ignore things which stopped me cold, popping me right out of the story as efficiently as might my hearing Sister Mary Francis cover a gangsta rap track.

On the topic of free, I truly do appreciate authors like this one, having a large catalog of works making their early titles available for free so one may try them without risk. But in all honesty, a review is a review and it would defeat the purpose to allow the price to defeat the purpose of an honest review.
