I couldn't recommend this book enough to anyone who's fond of classic Japanese movie monsters like Godzilla and Mothra!
Jeffrey Kafers smooth delivery draws you in, makes it real and doesn't let you off the hook until the last sentence has been read.
Jeremy Robinsons writing is exquisite. Cant wait to grab the next in the series!
I cannot put my finger precisely on why I didn't enjoy this book as much as I wanted to.
Perhaps it was the Keanu Reeves style narration delivery (The characterisations were far better). Perhaps it was the numerous errors (Kirsten,Kristen which is it?). Perhaps it was the product placements which ground my gears? Did we *really* need to know it was a Sony monitor, or an Apple MacBook?
All that said, I think it just didn't excite me the way the author intended. It was all just a bit hollywood for me. I like my fiction to have grit, real emotion and characters I care about.
This had none of that.
If you loved 90's SciFi flicks like Universal Soldier, The Terminator, Red Scorpion then this will be your bag.
Soldiers, Demons, War
The build up to the final scene was tense. The narrator did a fine job of keeping the atmosphere as the author would have intended. Vocally, Nigel Patterson sounds very like Sir Tony Robinson, which is no bad thing!
I really enjoyed the final standoff between the sergeants character and The Prince
Yes, as a novella it was easily listened to on my morning commute
I shall be looking for the rest of the series!
