The Ares Weapon

Really enjoyed reading this one, kept me interested all the way to the end

The Ares Weapon

The beginning to what I believe will be a thrilling epic tail. The character development is full of turns and twists which will leave the reader guessing. The true motives of each of the characters will not be revealed until the end. Since this is a series. We know the protagonist survives but the “how” is thrilling and the ”why” has yet to be revealed.

The Ares Weapon

A complex protagonist, plots within plots, and plenty of suspense kept me riveted to this book until I finished. Unlike so many "book 1 of the series" this one has a satisfying conclusion at the end along with the foreshadowing of book 2. A great read - the pace even got me past some grammar and proofreading errors that would normally have put me off.
