Book Description

Olympus has risen...



The world's largest and most secretive Private Military has made itself known on the world stage. Operating with impunity, they spread their tentacles into any nation willing to pay their exorbitant price.



For Joseph Braddock and his warrior brother, Danny 'Whisper' Callbeck, the battle has only begun. Waging a desperate war across the globe, Joe Braddock and his team of Peacemakers have weathered a humiliating defeat from Olympus in western Pakistan. Now, their fledgling unit is in danger of being shutdown by the CIA. But when a rogue CNN reporter promises them important information about the enigmatic Code of War, no amount of bureaucracy can keep Joe from bringing his war to the scorching cities of Africa.



Meanwhile, Danny Callbeck travels to Russia in an attempt to find the original creators of the Code. It is there that he meets the woman who has haunted his dreams for nearly eight months: the devastating Olympus assassin Agrippina.



'The Peacemakers' is the sequel to Jim Roberts' debut novel, 'Olympus Rises'. A blockbuster in every way, the Code of War keeps getting bigger...more action, more adventure, more globe-trotting excitement! Join the Peacemakers today!

I’m very impressed with the work of Jim Roberts. This is a writer who has identified a very marketable literary niche and is doing a good job carving out a readership for himself. In “Olympus Rises” Roberts introduced us to a cadre of fascinating characters and he’s brought them all back for more in “The Peacemakers.” Joe Braddock is the main focal point, but I’m getting the sense that Danny Callbeck is kind of taking these novels over. In “Olympus Rises” Danny came into the possession of a technologically advanced battle suit which turns him into a cross between Batman and Ironman. It’s interesting that modern warfare has progressed to the point where what would be called a “superhero” costume only a few decades ago is now an entirely reasonable piece of equipment soldiers might take into battle. Essentially all you’re talking about is body armor and heightened optics (Danny’s suit has some mechanical enhancements as well), and the way technology is advancing it’s pretty reasonable to assume that this is the way war will look in another decade or so.

“The Peacemakers” starts out with a mission that doesn’t go according to plan and which puts the team on probation. This allows for Roberts to give us a bit of “down time” with the characters which includes a hunting trip – which I enjoyed. With the Peacemakers out of action, the terrorist organization Olympus is allowed to advance their schemes unopposed.

The thing that makes these books great is their sense of purpose. This isn’t a series that has inflated aspirations. The goal is to tell a good military story, effectively convey the emotions of the central characters enough to make them appealing but not so much that they’re mushy, and to blow a lot of stuff up in as cool a way as you can imagine.

I enjoyed the first book in the series and was very excited for the sequel. The Peacemakers exceeded my expectation in every way. Once again, Roberts work feels very grounded in reality with technology that is just beyond what we have today. Roberts shows an excellent knowledge of the military genre which helps you feel like you are on the battlefield with the characters. With anime elements (e.g. battle suits, katana-wielding cyborgs) mingled with modern warfare (e.g. The Hurt Locker and Black Hawk Down) this is an absolute must-read for fans of military scifi. The ending is an over-the-top blockbuster that would make Michael Bay proud. The Peacemakers was completely satisfying and I can't wait for the third book.

5.0 out of 5 stars I LOVE IT !!!! 20 July 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I love this story. The characters are well developed and the plot is amazing. A really great fast-paced fun futuristic ride that takes place on several continents. New characters are introduced that make the story even more appealing. I especially liked Orchid and Rourke. The ending was a bit of a surprise for me, and I won't spoil it for readers here. Jim Roberts is an up and coming new writer.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not a bad storyline 6 Mar. 2015

Good ideas and some strong characters. Some of then story is a bit predictable but not a bad read at all. If you like a war story with a little extra this is worth a read.
