Where’s The Originality?

Standard

Quantum Synapse cover

Veritas Grey isn’t whom he thinks he is. When he discovers the truth, he finds himself caught in a fight for the future of humanity. The world is not as it seems. There are secrets dating back to the dawn of time that shakes the very core of man’s existence. Will Ver and his new friend, Selena do what must be done to tip the scales in their favor?

Blake’s latest novel, Quantum Synapse is the tired old tale where one man is the savior of the world. Add that to a retelling of The Matrix and you have a predictable story with no surprises. It has non-stop action and some cute moments. Otherwise, it isn’t all that interesting.

For someone with Blake’s talent, this is a major disappointment. No originality. The only redeeming quality is the fact that the main character is endearing.

2 out of 5 stars.

There’s a New Army on the Horizon

Standard

Havoc cover

Lucas Shaw wants nothing more than to go home and be with Sierra and the kids. He keeps getting sucked into battles keeping him on the west coast. When Shangri-La is attacked he is away in one of these fights and unaware of the danger to his family. With no reliable outside contact neither Lucas or the folks in Shangri-La know anything about the Crew and their plans. It seems nothing is settled and no one can feel safe.

Blake’s seventh novel in The Day After Never series, Havoc – Post-Apocalyptic Dystopian Thriller is another fast-paced, hard-hitting story. There seems to be no peace for anyone. New enemies emerge while others try to reestablish themselves.

I found myself immediately sucked into the book. Blake has a way of piquing your interest and teasing you with more. There’s definitely room for at least another 2 or 3 novels in this series. I hope that he doesn’t stop any time soon.

5 out of 5 stars.
