Title: ATLAS 2
Author: Isaac Hooke
Rating: 3 of 5 Stars
The Super Duper Aliens are back and they want Humanity enthralled.
How do you fight a multi-dimensional being that can take over people?
This was too long. That really sums things up. In many ways, the suspense, the tenseness was negated by the almost journal like writing. I much prefer reading from an omniscient narrator viewpoint instead of from the characters’ view.
Also, a glossary is so the author can use acronyms to their heart’s content without interrupting the flow of the story. If you feel that you’ll lose your audience by using acronyms and not explaining RIGHT THAT SECOND, then you’re doing it wrong.
I enjoyed the first book, this one was ok. I’ll be reading the third, but don’t have high hopes. That is sad.
And once again, WHY is this series called ATLAS when the robots called Atlas’s aren’t much of the story? This story is about the special forces known as MOTHS. While I’m nitpicking, why in the world ATLAS 2? Come on!!!!!!! Show a tiny bit of imagination.
Not a bad book or story, just needs some serious work by a professional. So worth your time if you like military SF and you can pick it up for free. Otherwise, stay clear. It’s not good enough to pay money for.
