If you are looking for the definitive colection of action cliches...,
This review is from: Invasive Procedures (Hardcover)... by all means, read this book.
From a barn going up in flames "... like it'd been sprayed with kerosene..." from a single spark on a rainy night, to a Good-guy / Bad-guy showdown on (that's right folks) the roof of a train.
I am an avid Card fan, but this book had nothing of him in it. One of the things that I enjoy the most while reading Card is his ability to create incredibly three dimensional characters and situations that draw me into the story. Be it Sci-Fi, Fantasy, or Horror, Card has never failed in this respect, until now.
The story was also peppered with glaring holes, contradictions, and incredibly predictable "twists."
This was a major disappointment and I implore Mr. Card to never put his name on the same publication as Aaron Johnston again. Anyone looking for a quality book please read "Folk on the Fringe," "Homebody," or (of course) the Ender series, but please don't let this book turn you off from an otherwise wonderful author.
