In that first volume, we were introduced to the remarkable world of Roshar, a world both alien and magical, where gigantic hurricane-like storms scour the surface every few days and life has adapted accordingly. Roshar is shared by humans and the enigmatic, humanoid Parshendi, with whom they are at war.

After recovering Patient Zero, Alpha must escape Africa to end the ZA once and for all. But they can feel the hot breath of a reinforced and vengeful Spetsnaz team on their necks - and there can be no escaping the reckoning of an ultimate sniper showdown between Ali and Vasily, and an incomparably brutal iron-cage Texas death match between Predator and Misha. For the first time, all the teams will come together and must fight as brothers for any chance of making it back to Britain. And only one thing is certain - not everyone is walking away from this one.

Between Michael and RC these guys just can’t miss. They thrust you into a world of headshots fast zombie fullauto to the face live action! Every character in this book is a bad ass because everyone that wasn’t has already died. Oh and don’t forget the Crazy Russian motherfuckers.

Douglas Kirk is having a bad week. Not only are groups of human hunters after him, whole werewolf packs have orders to kill him on sight, forcing him to flee Halifax without identification, money, weapons, or even his phone. If he wants to survive, he'll have to evade the killers on his trail, travel across the country to confront the elusive elders, and learn the truth behind the order that made him what he is.

I've only recently been introduced to Chris Fox books by a friend. I truly enjoyed the book. He took my favorite classic monsters and put them all into one great storyline. This was a credit well spent.

He doesn't a again. I'll keep this short and sweet. I'm a big fan of the first two books but this one hands-down has to be my favorite. He gives us a little teaser for book four at the end of the story and man I can't wait.

Matt Hollis is the current wielder of the holy weapon, DÄMOREN. With it, he stalks and destroys demons. A secret society called the VALDUCANS has taken an interest in Matt's activities. They see him as a reckless rogue - little more than a "cowboy" corrupted by a monster - and a potential threat to their ancient order. As knights and their sentient weapons begin dying, Matt teams up with other hunters of his kind such as LUIZA, a woman with a conquistador blade; ALLAN, an Englishman with an Egyptian khopesh; MALCOLM, a voodoo priest with a sanctified machete; and TAKAIRA, a naginata-swinging Samurai.

This book surprised me I didn't expected it to be as good as it was. This book will pull you in from the beginning and not let you go tell the end. I don't often write reviews but I wanted to give it four and a half stars but couldn't from my phone. I'm a truck driver that runs over night and enjoy my books on the road. This book kept me going the entire 10 hour hale.

I enjoyed the story. It's filled with twists and turns. I truly enjoy a story that can leave my mouth agape at the end. Reminds me a little of the gobbling Chronicles. The narrator wasn't bad. I would recommend it if you have a spare credit lying around.
