3.0 out of 5 starsI assume this series is meant to be lighthearted and tongue in cheek...
Reviewed in the United States on August 17, 2020
But I found the protagonist to be not all that likable. He is a egotistical superman, and abusive bully toward his butler(who stays with him...why?)... at least until the third book when the author apparently felt more humor was needed and so a dash of Inspector Clouseau was added. But I couldn't make myself care about the characters, and I won't be continuing the series.
The books in this series are funny, edgy, and full of wit, and witticism. The characters jump off the page, and Mr. Wallace leaves a colorful world of imagery to stage the chronicles of an outstanding character. I'm a huge fan of this series, and seriously consider this as one of the only trilogies that I absolutely plan to re-read in the future. The pace and tempo set throughout the books is relaxed and easy to read. Furthermore, I cannot find another series out there as brave and magical as this set. After reading The Bulletproof Adventures of Damian Stockwell, I had to dig further and read anything else by this author, and I WAS NOT DISAPPOINTED. The Author keeps a magic alive in writing that I've yet to see anywhere else. I hope he continues to write, for he is a beacon in the dark sea of literature. A light of hope, if you will to a new era of fiction.
5.0 out of 5 starsEnough thrills to keep you up all night reading and funny enough you'll keep everyone else up laughing.

The Bulletproof Adventures of Damian Stockwell are stay-up-all-night-reading-forget-about-work-tomorrow exciting yet so laugh-out-loud funny no one else in the house will be able to sleep while you're reading it! If you take the classic thrills of pulp-era adventures, toss in a stalwart main character (with dark comedic, charmingly narcissistic personality who still manages, despite all that to actually be quite good) and bind it all together with incredible wit and humor you have the makings of a great story.

Well, it appears that the author was a fan of the old Doc Savage novels from decades ago. I had trouble getting into the books because of the close parallel to the style and main character, down to the "utility vest" and all the various tools buried within clothing. By themselves this is not a terrible series, but if you know The Man of Bronze you may have problems. Still, the books are fair adventure, so I cannot pan them completely.
5.0 out of 5 starsA pulp fiction hero who loves America and it;s values. And is ready to punch anyone in the face who disagrees

Mr. Walllace obviously loves the pulp fiction of characters like The Shadow, The Green Hornet and Batmen. He brings this love along with his comedy and creates a dashing character Damien Stockwell. Tongue is firmly planted in cheek. Stockwell is handsome, smart and ignorant at the same time and cares for the downtrodden (we think) He loves America and it's values and is ready to punch anyone in the face who doesn't agree.

I really wanted to like this but it tries to hard to be clever and pithy and becomes very predictable fast. The character would make a good TV series lead, light hearted, egotistical, and minimal substance.
