Action-Adventure, Terrorist, Thriller
Action-Adventure, Terrorist, Thriller (I think I got all the genres)
I wasn’t sure what I was getting into at first glance. The cover doesn’t give too much away – but it does set the tone for confusion among the main characters of the book. And I think that Hoover did a nice job going back and forth trying to create this feeling of confusion and disorientation throughout Michael Ridding.
I can’t tell you too much about the plot without ruining anything (hence the short one that the author provides too), but the story is everything I listed above. Action-Adventure, Terrorist plots, and a Thriller too. Hoover jumps around from genre to genre and I wasn’t even sure what I was going to get when the book finished.
I do wish that there was a little more (and I have no idea what Hoover plans for the future) in the action-adventure part of it. I would love to follow along with the exploits and adventures that they have when searching for these artifacts and old world… things. Hoover mentioned Antarctica but it was also mentioned that he went on numerous other excursions.
I thought that the best part of Michael Ridding was the pacing. There were times that it felt like it wasn’t going to let up – but then it would and things would settle down a bit, only to get ratcheted back up to 10. The back and forth was mentally exhausting (in a good way). Hoover was able to write a story that felt much longer than 6 hours.
Overall, Michael Ridding was a good introduction to the characters, enemies, and what DenCom is. I want to see a lot more from this series and I hope that Hoover is able to provide the same pacing and character building in the next stories.
I was given a free copy of this book - it has not affected my review in any way.
