Title: Badland

Series: Warlord

Author: Jason Frost

Rating:   1 of 5 Battle Axes

Genre: Action/Adventure

Pages: 171

Format: Kindle

 

Synopsis:

Eric Ravensmith continues his hunt of Dirk Fallows who still has his son Tim.

And the United States is sending in a space shuttle to recover some secret science stuff that is on the now island of California.

 

My Thoughts:

Man, this was pretty bad. Cannibal children, the freaking space shuttle! Come on, if the mainland wanted something from California, there are easier ways than the space shuttle. And astronauts with a minimal of military training.

Eric almost rescues his son, Fallows is brainwashing Tim and one woman leaves on the space shuttle and the other stays behind. Gratuitous sex scenes allround.

Ugh….

Synopsis:

Captain Awesome Sauce is hot on the trail of the Bad Guy, so that he can rescue Awesome Sauce Jr. Tagging along is Hot Girl Wife Replacement. Sadly, Ye Olde Pirate Crewe forces them to detour and take part in their swashbuckling Adventures of Olde.

A lot of people die and Awesome Sauce and Replacement Wife keep on truckin’.

 

My Thoughts:

Brainless action with a new brand of California Pirates. Nothing really stands out. Except the pathetic sex scene. Beyond being gratuitous, it was just a joke.

This is just Men’s Action. What more can you say?

Synopsis:

Former super special secret sauce Vietnam vet now has a normal life in California, except he has to testify against his former commander for super dee duper evil crimes committed in Vietnam.

Bad guy goes free and vows vengeance on Awesome Sauce.

Then California breaks off the United States because of a Super Quake. Not only that, but the Bad, Evil Government was hiding Super Secret Evil Weapons and those somehow formed a cloud that caused the United States Government to declare California under quarantine.

So the Bad Guy decides to wreak his revenge on Awesome Sauce now. Because NOW is the time. And Awesome Sauce takes HIS revenge. And thus ends the book.

 

My Thoughts:

Gregor Xane recommended this series when I was reading the End World series. Thankfully, this was leagues above that series.

I know my synopsis was a bit heavy handed, but it adequately describes the tone of this book.

I wasn’t expecting the brutalness of this though. This was a no-holds barred violence fest. There were several times where I just cringed and went “oh…” inside. The Bad Guy was BAD!!! I like my bad guys to be really bad. I’m just not real cool with seeing what makes them so bad.

The sensual/sex scenes were gratuitous while not being completely erotical level. It wasn’t necessary and just made me shake my head. I really hate it when an author does that.

This was a fun read though. I have the next 2 available and am looking forward to them. Part of that is that I’m a big fan of California falling off the West Coast. I don’t make jokes about it anymore though, as my wife doesn’t find it funny 😉
