This book totally rocked. I brought it on the 8th December and finished on the 11th after three nights of furiously paced reading. Itwas a real page turner. It was so good. It was better than good. It was brilliant.
Once again the Tube Riders familiar characters of Marta, Switch (my favourite), Paul, Owen and their new companion Carl feature in a book with more action than a bunch of James Bond’s put together. Leading off from where the Tuberider’s trilogy left off, right after having crashed through into France, the book gets stuck into the action in a fast and furious way. I loved the beautifully described scenery of the Quarantine Zone, the Mont with the monks (I sense their story is yet to be fully told) and the superb Gravedigger. The action charges on into the Paris Catacombs as The Governor, some old enemies and a new one battle the Tube Riders with control of Mega Brittan and an innocent life being in the balance. So much action, so much suspense, so many robots! Oh, and an interesting development, well two interesting developments for Marta and some new group dynamics for the Tube Riders. I don’t want to give too much away.
Oh this book is good, very good. It certainly is not your average self published piece. There is excellent character development, obvious professional editing and an edge to it that shows a lot of time and effort went into getting this book right the first time. I would have to say that without a doubt, this is the best book I have read in 2013 and I’ve read over 100. A brilliant book, well deserving of the 5 stars I have rated it at.
If you loved the first Tube Rider’s books you will love this. Fans of the Borribles series, Tomorrow when the War Began, adventure books and even Dirk Pitt novels you should like this one.
Very briskly paced (a little too brisk,maybe) and decent, though not great, characterization, good twists that aren't completely obvious. Still a little clunky in parts - a real editor would improve this, but he's a good enough writer to warrant shelling out the bucks so he continues to get better. The main drawback to the story is that it's a bit too brisk, slamming along from one action piece to another. To me, the best part was the beginning in the Quarantine Zone. The characters there had a bit of time to breathe and reflect, and I felt that served the story well. The rest of the book felt rushed, which of course it's a chase adventure, but I think the story and our investment in the characters would be stronger with more character development. It feels at time like the author got excited about the next scene before the current bit was done, and rushed through it just to get to that part.
All that being said, I'm in for Part Three!
You really can't go wrong with it. There are some slightly annoying characters such as Marta, the lead female character but I still liked her anyway. Switch, well he's just fantastic. His character alone kept me turning the pages. I really like Paul & Owen too and Carl is such a loveable boy with one hell of a set of balls on him.
