One of my top three writers now,along with Chris Kuzneski and Andy McDermott, absolutely brilliant adventure books,well researched and keep you so engrossed you lose all track of time.
This book is a continuation of the scarecrow character ( on of two distinct characters in two book series he does) and to be fair,even you haven't read the others in the series you really need to read them first as it helps follow the stories better,although it is not essential......but I bet you buy the others later!!,
Scarecrow is the main character,called that because of scars over his eyes when a pow,is in the marine corps and it is based around almost suicidal operations he gets involved in,where his seems to be only team (of misfits) available. Sounds a bit cliche but all the books well researched and brilliantly written
Word of warning,if you have bought the " Army of Thieves" in this series don't buy this....it is same book but this is the American title.
Matthew Reilly is an Australian writer,which you can tell as the heros are far more realistic,usually with injuries and issues,not all 6'4" hunks(well not the men anyway) like the majority of American authors heros.
If you like serious robust adventure,buy it,you won't be disappointed
I have to say I'm really glad Scarecrow is back, I've missed him. The title is a bit naff but that does not reflect on the contents at all. The Army of Theives picks up from where the last one left off. Scarecrow has been sent to the Arctic to test prototype equipment almost as a punishment for his escapades. The French are out for his blood and it makes sense to have him as far away as possible. It also means he is there with a mixture of Army guys and civilians.
This sets things up very well for what is to come, though I will not give any spoilers about the story. Permit me to say, though, how happy I was to see the return of Mother and the additions of Baba and Bertie were inspired. I'll be interested to see what happens with Champion as well.
Please remember, Matthew Reilly writes FICTION. You must temporarily suspend belief when reading one of his books. They are not intended to be educational aids. They are FUN!!! And boy, is this book fun.
I must caution you, though, there are some torture scenes that are extremely graphic and even I found myself skimming those pages. However, they are not purely gratuitous so don't be put off.
I hope this is not the last we see of Scarecrow, Mother, Baba and Bertie. It was a rollercoaster read that I didn't put down until it was finished.
It's typically over the top, but only Reilly can get away with that. Needless to say, I enjoyed it and finished in a day.
I'll accept that his stories will be loved by some and hated by others, as a 500 page battle scene where belief has to be suspended is not everyone's cup of tea, but I did like this one. Nice twist too, or a couple of them towards the end.
As for the story, it's the usual Reilly fluff of Scarecrow taking on impossible odds, as well as killer polar bears. Of course he only runs out of bullets when it suits, but so what. Role on the next book, I'm in if the author can keep up to this level.
