Both the villains and the heroes are well written and intelligent, lending Amir and Anselm believibility. The science behind the power generation, and detailed descriptions make the Tower an intriguing and edgy backdrop to this story of bio-terrorism. The story builds logically from the methodical actions of one agent to a frantic skirmish involving a large number of characters both good and evil.

The science, whether military or engineering build upon alot of cutting edge current trends and took then to logical conclusions.

The book was a fun, well written read that I will recommend to friends.

If you are looking for interesting characters, antagonists with an all too plausible attack on society, and fast moving plot that will leave you holding on for the next turn, this is the book for you. With a fascinating premise, characters that evolve, and science that has me wishing for tomorrow, Evan's novel delivers a great read that has me waiting for the next adventure of Anselm.

Evan Currie has always demonstrated a talent for pacing, thrills, and action, and Thermals is certainly a work that reflects that. The characters, intially palid, are fleshed out in subtle ways while the plot develops, and the novel crescendo's into a dazzling climax. Part future dystopia, part detective novel, and part spy thriller, Thermals ticks a lot of boxes for an audience who likes fast paced action and adventure.

All in all it was a gripping read, and leaves this reader with great hope and anticipation in Currie's future works.

This is a crap novel.

Not because the plot is bad...it isn't.

And not because the characters are thin...they aren't.

No, this is a crap novel because it is page after page of grammar error, spelling error, inconsistency and sheer idiocy.

And that's a real shame, because as with Into the Black: Odyssey One [Remastered Edition], there is a good story drowned in what is a hack piece of writing.

Basically, Currie writes with no apparent care or precision, and "Thermals" will frustrate any reader who cares about such things. Indeed, it is not exaggeration to say that there is a grammar and/or spelling error every couple of pages.

For a few examples of the inconsistencies, consider an Interpol Inspector, our leading character Anselm Gunnar. He's European but when we meet him he's thinking in Imperial units, not metric. That's about as likely as Alicia Keys belting out `God Save the Queen' as the National Anthem at the Super Bowl.

He switches to metric in short order (in fact the whole novel switches to metric), but that kind of gaff is typical of the errors embedded in "Thermals".

Or an emergency call being dialled as `9-1-1' when such a call would be `0-0-0' in Australia.

Or a `START' team (some kind of fast response military team) becoming a `STRT' team half way through the novel. I guess the `A' in the acronym was not really needed after all?

We also see a police car cruising a desert road at just under 400 km/h (and screaming around town at 200 km/h).

I have often been critical of unknown authors on Amazon. However, I admit that new authors have to come from somewhere. I bought this book with some hesitation. I was very surprised by the high quality writing and excellent storytelling. Reminds me of another "low volume" author.....Nathan Lowell....albeit with a much more military point of view. Very good work! Look forward to the sequel.

Revision: Considering the quality of the storytelling, I have been forgiving of the grammar problems. It's very odd that the author seems to be able to write with great expression, but he doesn't seem to know the difference between "then" and "than". There are a lot of consistent grammar problems, so be forewarned if you are very particular about this. I generally will not read works with errors like this, but the overall quality balances this out. This author DEFINITELY needs a better proof writer.

I have read all Evan Currie's later books, and enjoyed them very much, but I did not like this one. Like his subsequent books, this story has some great battle scenes and I liked the idea for a futuristic power station. Not quite sure where all the water to run it came from in the dead heart of the continent, but may be that's nitpicking. Unfortunately I also didn't find the rest of the plot believable, I thought the female police officer was unrealistically stupid and I hated a lot of the "Aussie" dialogue. I've spoken to quite a few Australian soldiers and I don't recall any of them ever calling me "son", let alone doing it in every third sentence. "Mate" may be "son" no.

The rest of the background didn't gel either. I don't know if Interpol agents cruise the world looking for bad guys but I suspect they don't, particularly in countries with their own police forces. I am, however, sure that they won't be able to legally bring their own weapons and ammo into the country without filling in a lot of paper work first. Amazingly the country does have its own defence forces too, not nearly so large as America's, but not so small that they can only field a single team of soldiers to deploy in the middle of the country. And the army bases, even by road, would surely be able to get some personnel on the ground sooner than a helicopter flown from mainland USA.
