Editorial Reviews


Ruthanne Taylor Amazon Reviewer - Damn Good Read. So possible & so close to what we see happening in today's world it's frightening. A real edge of your seat read.Can't wait for the next instalment. J. C. Ryan tells an amazing tale.
Jerry Amazon Reviewer- Rossler Foundation just keeps getting better. JC Ryan builds a rich story that touches on issues relating to the dangers of the drug of power in a way that does not take away from the story. A great read as all his books to date have been.
OldArcher Amazon Reviewer - Great writing for those who appreciate fun, thought provoking,speculative, fiction... I'm writing this for all the books of the Rossler Foundation Series...
Superbly written, plausible, captivating, and readers will be crying out for "More!!!" Clancy was the last "thriller"writer that held my attention. J.C. Ryan has brought back the fun of that genre for me. His characterizations, dialog, and plot lines are fun to read, and sav or,as one would a gourmet cup of coffee, laced with Grand Marnier, or sipping Jameson's Irish Whiskey... It's been a long time since I've read a great series that is as much fun that isn't science fiction, of, and by, itself... Perhaps Mr. Ryan should use the same definition for his work, as Heinlein did for some of his- "speculative fiction..."
Regardless of how you slice it, J. C. Ryan is a wonderful writer and storyteller. 
Meghan Top Amazon Reviewer - Another white-knuckle suspenseful read. Whenever I read a JC Ryan book, I keep thinking about the visuals--how would this scene or so look in HD or even 3D. Sure, the budget would run to a hundred million dollars, but from the 10th Cycle to The Skywalkers, it would be all worth it.
Having said that, the release of JC Ryan's latest book, The Skywalkers, was met with a great amount of anticipation. I was not disappointed, because right at the get go, the mere mention of the Prophet got my juices flowing--it's not long before I lost track of time reading and stopping my heart from lurching for the sake of the Rossler Foundation's team.There's quite an intense amount of fun and the integrated verisimilitude made even the book's most astounding technology feel as real as the smartphone you're holding.
Moreover, the Skywalkers' ending presents a cliffhanger that leaves your jaws dropped on the floor, and it could either be good or bad: it would be GOOD if the next JC Ryan book that follows this is released as soon as possible, like TODAY; bad if the sequel takes several months to arrive and the excitement created by The Skywalkers' ending dissipates and deteriorates into frustration. I'm not a huge fan of cliffhangers, but I don't really dislike them, either: it's one of those literary devices than can add more fun in the whole reading experience. But in the long run--in the future when readers could buy a boxed set of JC Ryan's Rossler Foundation books, which might include The Skywalkers and its immediate sequel--then the said ending wouldn't bother us and would even feel like just the right ingredient stirred into the pot at the exact crucial moment.
The Skywalkers is an enjoyable book--it continues the Rossler Foundation's uncanny ability to invite us to wonder about those mysterious unanswered questions and could-have-beens, but it also never loses its action-yand edge-of-your-seat thrill. There's never a boring moment reading this--it took me a day to finish the book, and that was because I tried prolonging the reading experience by dwelling in certain chapters--such as the implications mentioned in Chapter 6--and when I finally finished reading, it took me a few moments to ponder the fact that I'm facing what may be a few months before the next JC Ryan book. But then again, I could just reread the previous books to relive the experience. Fans of well-crafted techno-thrillers must get a copy.
