I received this book courtesy of Random House Bantam for the purpose of a fair and honest review.
Overview: It’s time for the final battle with the would-be gods of the new world. The Techno-Arcadians believe that they have America by the throat, all they have to do is turn everyone in the States against–what they think is–the sole enemy of the revolution. Jane Hawk has a few tricks left up her sleeves, as well as a small army that does not have a whole lot to lose. Let’s place our bets on the winner.
Story Telling: We are still full throttle in a techno-thriller. This is also the closing book of the Techno-Arcadian conspiracy.
Dislikes: Calling all psychopaths and sociopaths! Goodness, I’m not sure how many of those nuts that were part of the Techno-Arcadians, but we got one or two extras thrown in.
And there was something unsettling about the ending. It’s not how I’ve come to expect Mr. Koontz to end his novels.
Likes: There were many instances of Americans doing what they do best in this novel. Everyone has seen times of great disasters, when Americans go above the call of duty. It’s who we are, aside from a few self-centered people.
And for every monstrous personality introduced, we were gifted with two or three heroic ones. The balance was definitely kept straight.
Favorite Quote: As this is an Advanced Reader Copy, Random House as requested that quotes are checked against the final product. That’s about three months away.
Favorite Character: We get two. Cornell is back, and proving to be quite quick on his feet.
And Porter Crockett is the kind of man that you want on your side during these kinds of messes.
Favorite Scene: It’s when Porter and Tom are in the diner.
Conclusion: This is a good series. The only thing that could possibly explain the loose threads is that Mr. Koontz has admitted that Jane has seven books. This is only book five.
