This is the first non sci-fi book that I've read by Mr. Currie - instead it's more of a military gothic horror effort. Maybe a bit Stargate(ish) but entirely based on Earth. Anyway he does the mix of military gung ho mixed with magic and monsters brilliantly. The story is tight and well written and the dare I say it - fantastical - bits are kept under control so they don't take away from the human aspect of the main protagonists.
The dialogue is great fun, and as per usual Currie has written this properly with literary correctness and good editorial control. He really can write well. To be honest he could easily do a full on thriller in the mode of Tom Clancy - he's easily that good at this genre.
So we have a washed up ex-Seal who has been brought back into the fold because of his knowledge of things that do not fit into the normal scope of conventional military thinking. He has collected a small group of others - soldiers - who have also found out too much about what is behind the 'Veil,' and these gentlemen are brought together to form an unconventional Seal unit with explicit orders to find out what is going on.
Great characterisation, fun OTT characters and a lots of action. It's not going to challenge someone who wants to read Shakespeare but for those looking for a fast paced military-fantasy crossover thriller then this is perfect. Currie is a brilliant find.
All I beg of Mr Currie is that the next book isn't too long a wait.
This book was definitely different and to begin with introduced the genre, the 'characters' and backgrounds well, building up mystery and intrigue.
For the first half of the book I was enjoying the genre, learning about new 'creatures' and the read.
The book then deteriorates into an overblown, tedious battle that leaves too many loose ends flapping in the breeze like rotting skin on a desiccated skeleton!
The characters suddenly transform into cliched supernatural heroes and villains and the read became more of a chore than the interesting, enjoyable journey of the first half.
Finally the ending is flat and sudden (and predictable).
A real shame as the beginning offered so much. I'll not be looking at the authors other books and won't be exploring the genre further anytime soon.
Fast paced and interesting introduction to this new series, hoping it won't be too long a wait for the next book in the series.
This book works around the idea of something called The Veil which separates the supernatural world from the mundane world. When a mundane learns about the supernatural he or she crosses over and attracts the attention of things on the other side. This is talked about a lot - but NOT shown - NOT explored. This was probably the best idea in the book but it's not used at all.
This book uses a formula: Something bad happens in the past to the hero who is damaged by the experience and has his career ruined. Jump forward 10 years. Something similar happens and our hero is called back by superiors who must finally admit that something is going on that they cannot understand. This 'now' scenario scenario is then explored by military operators and extremely cool people(TM) with only repeated allusions to the whole veil thing - so many allusions that it became a little irritating.
If it's so important EXPLORE IT! Grrr.
So, I liked the book. It had a flaw. In my opinion.

An interesting idea but perhaps not fully developed. Obviously meant to be the beginning of a series, this leaves quite a few unanswered questions. Read morePublished 13 months ago by AJ
