Reviews of Alpha Mike - Seven to Nine by Bert Marshall

Traci Cormier reviewed on Aug. 24, 2013

I have now read all three books. This is not my typical genre for reading. I saw a huge improvement in the writing style across the 3 books. The description became more detailed. This allowed me to paint a more vivid mental picture of the characters. I feel like he developed his lead characters more. I began to get more insight into their personality and not just the physical appearance. Example-- Buttons. Her physical description was pain Jane farm girl with a long face and big jugs. In this book I began to see passed the trash mouth and care-free attitude. He developed the character into a woman with feelings that were realistic and relatable. The hardcore warrior had a soft side. While she didn't like sharing her mate, she understood that it was not an emotional attachment Leif had to the other females. "Mike" turns out to be less like the strong woman she portrays and more like a spoiled brat. David made no false pretenses about his escapades. She thinks she can change David. When she realizes that she can't, her tantrum cost her big time. It's the quiet ones you have to worry about! Jess is developed into a clingy and emotionally fragile female. She lacks strength and self reliance. She always "needs" other's approval and is very jealous. In the other book I just thought she was sweet, quiet, and carefree. I was wrong..
The trilogy echoes the thoughts and feelings of many Americans. The epidemic is spread in a believable way. The fact that woman were the primary soldiers made sense once I really began to think about the book. Of course you kill the men. The men allow for reproduction of more Americans and represent the greatest physical threat to the enemy. This is a realistic piece of fiction. It is a good read.
My only negative is that the author needs to recruit multiple proofreaders. There were some deleted words, some incorrect usage of its, it's, and buy,by. I can honestly say I was so sucked into the writing that it did not take away from what I was reading.
I would like for there to be some closure fro this book in the form of another read, or a spin off book based on the other lead characters. I am very interested to see who the author thinks wins this war.
