Smashwords book reviews by Pete Anderson

  • Shredder on March 10, 2012

    Interesting. I liked the alien/shapeshifter concept, not big on massive profanity but realise that many soldiers and ops mercenaries do talk this way. Killings quite graphic, as noted by other reviewers; an interesting premise, should make a high-dollar movie that will pull a crowd even if the end is somewhat predictable. A nice effort over-all.
  • The Last Praetorian on Aug. 19, 2015

    I liked this quite a bit, 3.5 to 4 stars. Okay, caveats, it started out a bit uneven, executions over trifles then 'I don't kill', seemed kind of conflicted but progressed well. It felt like as the story progressed, Mike found his stride and the mid-to-end was pretty good. Enjoyable. I finished it in two days, in reading piecemeal between other tasks. Only bigger caveat I think I would mention is the starship physics, spaceships don't have control surfaces and don't slow down when their engines quit. Newtons First & Second Laws. Wikipedia RCS. This is more apt to atmospheric bound vehicles, but this is a minor nit and it wouldn't stop me from finishing the series by any means. The characters had depth & were well drawn and you are definitely left bought into wondering what happened w/ Sofia that turned the story arc as it did. Going to hit up Sunfire next and see where Jon ends up this cycle. With people hunting his head again, little doubt.

    I enjoyed this very much. Without wrecking the plot, when you find yourself hoping to find out what happens to the character that vanishes at the end, then its a good book. Good character development & plot, for those outside the UK you get to see how British English differs from American English w/o being too confusing as regarding the terms that they use for common places and items that differ from ours. I would give it 4.5 stars. :) Enjoy.
