It is a very good book and packed with action, twists and unforeseen turns.
I must admit I had a feeling of the storyline for two reasons 1. From the title 2. From the first chapter that was released. and I thought here's another story that's going to focus, heavily, on the Spanish Armada but I have to say I was really surprised of the path that the story took me on and I hope you are too.
Some brilliant new characters are introduced and are really believable.
So overall I was really pleased with the book and thoroughly enjoyed the adventure.
Ps. I bought the kindle version so am not sure if this will apply to hard/paper backs but there's an extract of a new, untitled, book coming in 2014 and from reading the extract - wow!
The Armada Legacy is a different kettle of fish altogether. Arguably, this is a back to basics Ben Hope thriller. The archaeological mysteries, the world-stopping revelations, the bulletproof superhero all take a step back and what we have instead is a tightly plotted, focused race against time, dominated by the always intriguing and fascinating character of Ben Hope. This is a man who has woken up with a jolt. We've followed his stormy relationship with Brooke over several books and now he is faced with the very possible outcome of losing the woman that can heal his life. He even stops and thinks before taking a drink. In The Sacred Sword there were other discoveries about Ben's past that you could call more significant and earth-bending but for me they were far less meaningful. In The Armada Legacy, it's much more simple. Ben Hope loves Brooke Marcel and he will stop at nothing to get her back.
While this intensification of Ben's purpose is a positive force, it did mean that the mystery of the Armada legacy itself gets very short shrift. Whereas in some of the Ben Hope novels the archaeological mystery has prominence, here it does not. But this didn't matter. The pace of the novel is so strong and the efforts of Ben to find his way back to Brooke are so satisfyingly complex, that the thrill of the hunt across Europe and South America more than atones for the lack of archaeological puzzle. As for the villain of the piece - you'd have to read a lot of thrillers to find a villain as nasty and as corrupted and yet still as human as this one.
The Armada Legacy is yet another well researched, exciting novel that gets one's mind working overtime.
Whilst reading, I found myself (out of character) hoping that Brooke did not get killed as she is a perfect partner for Ben Hope (not a soppy blonde). I know that may sound very "girly" but Scott M's characters are so lifelike that one becomes attached to them.
On a more serious note- This novel is well researched, well plotted and well written. I give 5 stars as always.
Looking forward to the next novel.
Long live ben Hope - and LONG LIVE Brooke.
