Book/Novel Title: Arise
When you steal a hundred grand from some very bad people, the best way to survive is to stay small and quiet…Possibly its not to save a pair of drowning girls, not go ‘viral’ on social media and certainly not to let the local police take your passport, trapping you on a small ‘party’ island in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea.But Steve isn’t the average guy, he’s ex-military, ex-enforcer and ex-human. He’s a one man nanite fuelled nightmare for those that cross the line, and he’s decided that its time to clean up his act. He’s going to make up for the things he’s done, and save ‘the little guys’.It’s a nice fantasy, but even he has to admit, it’s really just a justification, because he’s a very bad man, with horrifying abilities, and he’s only just learning what he’s capable of. He needs a reason to not go to the dark, and if thats hunting down the creatures of the night and beating them to death with their own femurs?Well, he’s just the man for the job.Stolen money. Greek Islands. Werewolves and Enforcers… what could possibly go wrong?
I really liked this book. The author definitely deserves 5 stars. I can’t wait for the next book to come out.
violent and action is always a great combo. Wasn’t a fan of the random love Interests. What was done to him in the later parts of the book should have been incentive enough for him to rampage without the random girlfriend angle. I might read book 2 if it isn’t all sappy and lovey dovey.
Mix some ancient history, a plausible explanation of such (if you suspend belief a little), and a dark redemption story, along with an inspired levelling system, and what do you get? This. Badass. Book. Awesome.
Adrenaline fueled, action packed- awesome! Also appreciated that you didn’t take those love scenes a hair overboard like some do. Great story tale by an excellent story teller. 5 stars.
Excellent book when hero is alone, but constant repeating of what happened with other characters slows it down. Motivation of some side characters to act as described is weak. But still very good action-packed book.
So I liked it. I did. Didn’t like the MC personality wise cause he is like some anti hero slash I don’t know what, nor did I care for his quick fall into love but hey whatever. I did like the powers and the more…. realistic vibe of life this had versus other books of this nature. All in all I’ll read book two.
