Team Yankee is a speculative military fiction novel that presupposes that NATO and the Warsaw pack triggered World War III back in 1985. Written by Harold Coyle, its actually a retelling of an excellent story by Sir John Hackett, which is also the basis for a thriving minitures combat game.
Although a little cliched with a plot about a young teenager becoming a superhero in a time of crisis, Scales, Spirits of Chaos Book One is nonetheless a pretty good read for those who enjoy the superhero and young adult genres.
Outland, Quantum Earth Book One is a good end of the world type disaster tale that has some deep physics like experimental quantum uncertainty principals at it’s core. Basically, science nearly destroys the world, and these people try and survive it.
We have been following The Demon Accords book series for quite a while, and Demon Divine, number 14 in the series, is quite possibly the best tale yet from author John Conroe.
A much darker sci-fi series than many readers are probably used to experiencing, War’s Reward is the sixth and final book in the Free Fleet tale. Although some of the series was borderline insufferable at times, the story wraps up nicely with all plotlines satisfactorily completed.
For our review of the Free Fleet series of novels, we come to the penultimate entry. In From Furies Forged, we see the gloom and doom atmosphere reach a breaking point, but also an apex of action sliding into the finale. And we are pretty sure this one is going to end with a bang.
There seems to be a trend in our review of The Free Fleet series in that each book gets a little bit darker. While a good read, From the Black may be your last chance to depart the fleet if you don’t like the way things are headed.
We continue to review The Free Fleet Series this week with book number three, No Rest for the Wicked. This time there is some good character growth and a much more serious plot. It’s clear that the author still had growing pains, but is finding his way.
We continue our trend of reviewing full book series this week with the second entry in the Free Fleet tales, Coming Home. The action and adventure in Coming Home is palpable, and avoids some of the uncomfortable points of the first book.
Although The Recruitment Rise of the Fleet is clearly the freshmen effort by an author, it has some interesting concepts that make it worthy of a read. And it stars a gamer as the main hero, which is always a plus.
