      Much of this reads like a narrative version of a video war game. Lots of action. Not much in the way of character, let alone character development.

      Exceptionally DoneThis so far is a great series starter. The storyline is excellent and your outline must have been 100 pages at least! Thank you for allowing me to read this book, Danny Scott.

      Top notch book, but right now I'm a bit too lazy to write a review. However, I will say this, when I read the first few paragraphs, I knew it was going to be a great book.
