Still, the first one was good...I only wished the author had switched up the story line a bit more! In spite of it all, great action and good writing!
Half the fun of a Carolyn McCray book is watching the good guys not only figure out what the bad guys are up to and how to stop them - the how is ALWAYS amazing. Always. Good authors can write the good guys out of a mediocre corner, Ms. McCray writes her characters out of OMG and your nails will never be the same corners with humor, fun, and a whee, let's do that again feeling.
There is almost always a character who can come up with just the right mode of transportation the team needs most. Camels, anyone?
This book has all the fun of a Carolyn McCray book - and sleepless nights into you're finished, but romance blooming before your eyes is a happy addition to this one.
There is one cross-over from another series. As used, he isn't always on the "right" side; he marches differently, but sometimes does come around, but not without getting something he needs in return. Half the fun of this character is when he pops up - not necessarily when he is needed - but when he does show up, he is definitely needed. Doesn't make sense? Read the book(s) and you'll understand.
Great fun, as always. Ms. McCray can tell a yarn that is better than a week's worth of cardio!
The Hidden Hand, an ancient, super-secret terrorist organization is planning a replay of the plague pandemic, this time using an engineered version of the bubonic plague, to rid the world of unbelievers. Frustrated by its inability to crack the organization’s communications code, the government turns to Ronnie and Quirk for help, and uses Zachary as a conduit to her. What follows is a stunning tale of adventure, danger, intrigue and betrayal that will keep you feverishly turning pages.
Robin Hood Hacker Collection by Carolyn McCray is a collection of short stories, novellas, and a novel, that introduces Ronnie, Quirk, Zach, and his techno-geek side kick, Warp, and follows them through a series of harrowing adventures as they chase, and are chased by, the Hidden Hand. Though a bit heavy on the global pandemic aspect, this is nonetheless a fascinating tale—or series of tales—that fans of techno-thrillers will enjoy.
The writing was good, although it got pretty predictable by the third book. I almost felt like the author had done a huge amount of research on the different epidemics and plagues across the centuries of mankind, and felt like she had to try and cover all of them in the series. I was hoping for more of a technically-oriented series. It could easily have gone into terrorism through hacking, and the hacker overcoming that, but it was all illness-based.
Will the series continue now that the hacker has gotten her love interest? Who knows. I would read more of this heroine - as long as we stay away from pandemics for awhile.
But now that I actually have read some of it, "awesome" has definitely been crossed off the list of words I'd use to describe it. Along with "well-written", "interesting", and "totally worth the twelve dollars I paid for both cycles". But like I said, it's my fault for not reading the preview before getting my hopes up, and now I'm just trying to figure out if I can either return these or just finish the short story prequel and save the rest for when I'm absolutely desperate for something to do. I honestly can't think of anything else these "books" would be good for.

I loved the short stories in between the novels.
