Silly Dog
See my review of the Secret Families -- all applies to this one as well and I liked this one a bit more, actually.
Helo
Good Story but had a difficult time keeping track of the characters at first. Very surprising ending.
Obong
Slow read.
Datrim
Well written trade craft, plus building a wonderful full family character base. Does not sugar coat and the good guy don't always win. An interesting perspective on an interesting period in history and a very slanted but realistic view of cold and hot wars. It has been said that those who do not study history are forced to repeat it and adds that those who do study history are forced to stand by while those who did not study it repeat it.
Captain America
Great book
Vinainl
Love the trilogy. Is detailed and is for the true mystery, suspense lover.
Nikohn
Good story, but hard to keep track of so many characters.
I have been waiting for this series to arrive on kindle ever since my tattered paperback finally died. The characters I remembered were as involving, the plot as captivating. Now to catch up with Herbie
