Watch out Jack Reacher, Your competition is getting better and fierce
First of all a huge thanks to the author for providing me with the copy of the book.
I think i am liking Zeb carter (our protagonist) more than Jack Reacher for by the sequence of four books, our character has become more polished, fierce and unstoppable. The book is getting more and more irresistible and hard to put down.
The author is getting good and stronger at his work and he is becoming a strong threat to his contemporaries with a well sketched set of characters and even stronger story plot.
What i loved about this book is that the author has briefed all the previous books so beautifully and seamlessly that you could easily read this book as a standalone. The story is fresh for each book has only the central characters revisiting but with an effective background brief, you wont suffer much if you haven’t read the previous books
There is though one problem with the book. The jump from one scene to another is almost instantly and it becomes a little bit of task to track our character’s location and setting of the scene. Maybe it was in the formatting of the book or narration but somehow the transition was a bit jerky. Almost flickering between characters and scenes.
Undoubtedly The warrior series is out for blood. Blood of other popular fictional action heroes especially Jack Reacher. By the fourth book the series has gone golden and solid with both its sets of characters and strong story plot. The author needs to smooth the transition between various scenes a little more but otherwise this book is unbeatable in its genre. A terrific read and a blood pumping adrenaline read along with being rich in plot.
