Genre: action adventure
My Take On This Book:
Action-packed militaristic adventure. Modern fantasy. The story-telling quality is 4 out 5. Not a dull reading moment! This is the final book of the Jack West Jr. series and ends the saga very nicely. I would give the story climax a 4.5 out of 5. This book tied in all 3 Jack West books to a nice close. The ending is satisfying and does not disappoint despite the high expectations I had. This book retains the same ability to weave fact and fiction so seamlessly it blurs which is a trademark of all three books in this trilogy. Overall, I would give this book an entertainment value of 4 out of 5.
