An example of truly terrible writing. There's no style that can't be poorly ripped off, no story line that cannot be obfuscated by unnecessary facts or unnatural speech. Even free on Kindle, this book will cost you time best spent doing the washing up.

I like this. Always looking for new series, and this one is a great intro to Canadian Special Forces man, Justin Hall. Unusual enough setting (Arctic Circle), and an engaging character, with plenty of kicks. Smooth with dialogue and paints a vivid picture, with great pace. I know we're going to see more from Ethan Jones (mainly because he's already written more books- there's no getting past me, is there?) Anyway, give it a try and help this writer along.

Seahawk helicopters normals have a three man crew. Not a one woman pilot who can navigate fly and operate the weapon systems by tapping and waving her hands, also managing to fly the chopper out of a hanger without anyone noticing. I felt there were huge gaps in credibility throughout the story.

Ethan Jones' first full-length novel, this is a thriller set in the world of military intelligence. Justin Hall, our hero, is sent with his team to the Arctic to investigate reports of two unauthorized icebreakers in Canadian territory.

The plot is not as straightforward as it first seems and there are plenty of twists to keep the reader interested. The author allows time for us get to know the main characters, Justin Hall himself, his colleague Carrie who is also his ex-partner in the personal sense and Anna, the newbie on the team. The descriptions of the frozen Arctic are good, giving a real sense of the harshness of the environment and the community who live there, and the author makes sure the location plays a full part in the story. First and foremost, though, this is an action thriller, filled with gun battles, aerial dogfights, heroism and betrayal.

I felt that the plot while quite original was a bit far-fetched and I had to suspend my disbelief a little more than I would have liked. However, I was impressed by the author's writing style and felt that the characterisation was handled well. Justin Hall is a likeable hero whom I'd be happy to meet again.

Overall, I felt this was an enjoyable and very promising first outing for both author and hero and I look forward to seeing how both develop in future novels.

Yes it's a novel, but it would have been much better if it had been a bit more believable. Some of the personnel in the main battle scene seem like characters out of a schoolboy comic (in my day anyway!) and could do anything - eg fly singlehandedly operating guns, navigating etc - I felt she could win a war on her own!

The premise for the story was OK and there were some nice pieces of story telling, but it was the conversations between the characters which caused the story to falter. It's all a bit comic book, attempts at humour, where there wouldn't be any, and a bit of sameness, no matter who was talking.

So the plot around the someone wanting to take over swaths of Canada, is sort of so so, but I gather the author is Canadian and I get the plot, just not how it's undertaken.

It's a decent story, but I did find it hard work... Sorry.

A good book, well written. With all the action taking place in the Canadian Arctic, the battles and fights for survival in the snow and ice were extremely vivid, and so brilliantly written that you could see them in your mind. And with all the twists and turns in the book, it kept me hooked up to the very end! I'd definitely recommend this book to anyone who likes their books with plenty of action and adventure!

When I read the Prologue I thought I would enjoy this author's writing. The Prologue was thrilling and I thought the following chapters would be too. Alas this was not to be. After battling it through to chapter 6 and being bored to death I gave up. Far too much reading about nothing in particular and by chapter 6 we were no further towards the plot. Disappointing reading as the reviews were good, but I guess we all expect and like different things.
