    What would you do if you were sent on a covert action to stop a group of terrorists and upon arriving realized something was wrong? Would you carry out your assignment or would you abort and suffer the conseuence? You'll have to read the story to find out what Markus does Filled with non stop action and a wide range of characters this story moves rapidly from one scene to another leaving the reader with no time for boredom Throughout the book you'll want to stop to catch your breath though The narrator is fantastic and delivers a powerful read and well produced audio Readers of Stuart Woods would likely love this book I was provided with a free copy for review purposes which in no way swayed my opinion of the book

    A brilliant readThis is my second book from Mr Edelson that I've read in a week and I've immensely enjoyed it It is a military style sci fi story with plenty of action believable action but it also plays out a somewhat realistic danger about technology and human's love for power and control The overall message conveyed is a stark reminder that the greatest threat to us is ourselves

    Page turnerWhat a story I have to be honest I almost stopped reading a few times because this story just scared the crap out of me But what a shit ending It just calls for a seuel

    Theft of Fire EdelsonAs good as if not better than Tom Clancy without the “ the boy scout” Ryan crap Admittedly I could have had a bit less descriptive violence but while basic premise a bit sci fi futuristic the characters are real people doubts warts all making you care for them despite or because of their flaws It’s an “ seat of the pants” thriller don’t pass it up

    Full disclosure I was given a copy of this book for review purposesI am a fan of this author's other writing so he sent me a copy of this one a few weeks before it was released This was uite different from Michael's other books in that it was a straight up thriller either techno or military or espionage I guess it has elements of each It's a little like Tom Clancy meets Michael Crichton with a degree of realism that doesn't detract from the story whatsoever which can't always be said for good old Tom I actually learned things reading this book but I didn't realize I'd learned them until it was overThe plot moves uickly but not too uickly The locations are vivid and interesting the story is fantastic and a little bit scary because I can totally see this happening right now as I write this It would explain a lot about the modern world actually The best part are the characters We don't often get people with disabilities as protagonists but Grace was expertly portrayed She is exactly what I want to see as a strong female lead I don't want to give too much away but she makes some very tough decisions and some tremendous sacrifices stuff I wouldn't be able to do Markus is also pretty complex I didn't buy him at first seemed a little too macho military with some contrived emotional weakness but that was uickly remedied as his back story became apparent I felt for him and understood the things he did and why The ending was awesome Not that I didn't expect the twist at the end I don't think it was meant to be unexpected but I cared enough about the book to grip it white knuckled while chanting Come on Edelson don't fuck this up give me what I want And he did I was very happy The ending was written for seuels in mind and I really hope are coming soon This would make a fantastic thriller series

    Theft of Fire is the third Michael Edelson book I've read I've generally liked all 3 books but didn't find them to be really exciting or believable About 8 10 years ago these books would have been right in my wheelhouse as fast moving action thrillers that are fun but not very plausible I believe that my problem is that I've read too many of the same type of books and seen too many of this type of movie or TV episode The premise of TOF is rather interesting in that an amazing technological breakthrough an omnipotent super computer is causing vast changes in the world's balance of powers But this scenario has been done many times before both good and bad This time it's not very realistically presented I'm not a cyber security expert But I expect that in 2019 many governments and entities would have protections against such a breakthrough by an adversary Not everything is networked and a lot of systems couldn't operate at super speeds or would have barriers not easily overcome by brute force computing The techno omnipotence shown in TOF leads to many plot holes The bad guys can do these things here but can't do those things there hmmm?The military action in all Edelson books is way over the top in my opinion In TOF there are numerous discussions of the hierarchy of super solders and their comparisons to other military and law enforcement personnel It doesn't work for me The protagonist and his team are basically invincible and his opponents are close to Imperial Stormtroopers in effectiveness I do like much of the overall story arcs and some of the characters in the Edelson books I just wish that he would tone down the military action and try to make the Sci fi or technology aspects less over the top and realistic

    If you are a fan of high tech military stuff along the lines of Tom Clancy Jim Thompson Stephen Coonts or Jerome Preisler its right up your alleyAs usual Michael's characters are the down to earth IE real humans that are not superheroes or perfect Just the opposite in fact real humans with real issues making real and often very bad mistakesThe book flowsreads well And took me a few hours to read cover to cover I'm a speed reader though with full retention I had fun with the book It was a good readIts the type of book I like to read and is worthy of your timeOut of Michael'sfour books its my personal fav
