This is going to be a short, cookie-cutter review for all three Ex-Coms books.
Right off the bat, I’m a huge fan of Bret Battles books. Became a huge fan when I was first introduced to him work via the Sick series, then expanded into his spy thriller Cleaner series which was equally as compelling. So, when I saw this new series pop up after being introduced in one of Quinn’s books, I immediately purchased the books to see how the characters expanded beyond their initial introduction.
Overall, I think the Ex-Coms series is OK. The first book was definitely a treat, but the next two left a lot to be desired. Not sure where the blames lays with regards to my inability to fully appreciate these novels like I have the Quinn and Sick books, but I just get can’t pass them being just OK. I think the main issue I have with them is that the team is too perfect. I don’t want to say more than that, since I have more in-depth reviews on the individual books on Goodreads.com.
Despite this lackluster OK rating, I will probably continue to purchase books within the series to see where the story goes and how the team grows. I just hope Battles is not stretched too thin with all the other series of books his still writing, and manages to focus on this one long enough to flush out a more believable story.
