3.0 out of 5 stars Mostly enjoyable, 16 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Isis Covenant (Kindle Edition)
This book is immediately gripping and moves from chapter to chapter - a serious page turner.
Some of the premise is totally unbelievable ( and never truly followed up) but I can't mention it as it would be a major spoiler alert.
Nonetheless if you suspend belief as you would in a Dan Brown book- it's entertaining and enjoyable.

However I found the last few chapters too unbelievable - in that a major character suddenly acts completely against type.
To do this to make the plot work was a step too far for me.
Also - I found the conclusion feeble and disappointing.
I felt almost as if there were a final chapter of explanations missing.

I don't mean to say it isn't a good engaging read to that point - just that the ending let me down.
That is only my view and you may enjoy the ending.
On that basis I would recommend it to a friend, but with reservations.

Hi thanks for the very honest and thoughtful review. Sometimes when you're writing a thriller you have to push the envelope so far that you have to make yourself believe, and the trick is to carry your reader with you. A shame I didn't manage to do that for you. I'm not sure what you mean about a character acting against type, I'd count it a favour if you could let me know who/why at dugjakson@btinternet.com. I'm still learning this game and it would be good to know when I'm just about to start No. 4. All the best James Douglas (Jackson)
