Good action, great adventure and solid romance make this a very entertaining read. I also learned a bit about environmental terrorism and what that means. The only thing I knew about it before was from random stories on the news.
Overall its a good fast-paced read with an interesting twist on current events.
Regardless of what the cover may allude to I found that sean was more or less the main character. The reluctant hero thrown into a case he doesn't want that turns out to be more than what he bargained for. His character was very well written and fit the perfect type of male role usually found in such action capers. He was rather funny, entertaining, and good at his job. Didn't miss a beat and was always on alert as good as any FBI/CIA operative should be. Very well written. My only problem with this was it was rather cliche. The demoted drunken agent. Taken out of the field, issues with women on the job. Doesn't like his lot in life. Refuses to stop drinking. I felt like I had been here before. I guess I was expecting him not to fit the perfect role he fell into so perfectly. Having him be Irish was definitely a nice touch though.
Julie. A woman on a mission. How can you not love someone with that kind of drive. Beautiful and determined. And she speaks spanish. Bonus points. Needless to say I loved her too. A woman who shows obvious disdain to the arrogant agent she must work with who clearly doesn't want to work with her. Goes through a learning curve finds out maybe he's not so bad after all, and defeats the bad guys in the end. What's not to love about this kind of woman. She, just like sean was very well written. Again, as before, maybe too well. She sorta came of like Velma but ended up being Daphne in the end. For someone with so much fight I guess I was a bit disappointed she did the stereotypical I've never done this before but I'm going to venture out on my own, get caught and now the man has to come in and save the day. The only thing that saved it from being to cliché was that her rescuer got caught too.
The suspense, great. Perfect even. All the clues where laid out at the right points. The air of mystery never fell flat. The sense of wanting to turn the page to find out what the great mystery is, who is behind it, and would the heroes come out on top in this book or would I have to wait for the sequel, was held up to the last page. In this area the book was very good and did exactly what I expect action novels to do. Be page turners and keep me wanting to read it. I was invested in the plot of this story, but then I have a thing for water, ice and snow so maybe I'm a bit partial to this book being set in Alaska. Still the situations the characters found themselves in made for a very good read.
If you like action packed stories, with impossible circumstances, and a race against time and uncertain death, this series is definitely worth the read. I would recommend it to anyone who likes a good action novel. And as a bonus this one is eco friendly. Who says being an eco cop isn't cool. I've read this book and I know for a fact that they are cool. And so is this novel.
Review: The Eco-Thriller "Target Alaska" was very interesting. I loved the concept behind the book, and the plot points were well driven. I do think that if there was less romance I would have enjoyed it more, but I'm sure that's just me! The book is a combination of James Bond and Bear Grylls (the host of Man vs Wild). The character development was done well as well as the scenery described within the story. I'd recommend this to any thriller fan along with any survival fans out there!
