Title: Shadow of the Wraith (NEXUS)
Author: Ross Harrison
Published Date: May 1st 2012
Genre: Sci Fi
***THIS BOOK WAS GIVEN TO ME IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***
It sounds like a simple assignment: track down the mysterious Star Wraith and put an end to its rampage. But when Travis Archer and his team of inept soldiers find themselves the most wanted people in the galaxy – hounded by assassins, terrorists and their own military – they realise the Wraith is just a symptom of a much larger problem…
Finding war raging between one army intent on destroying an entire species, and another that will destroy the galaxy, Travis must put aside his fears and his past to uncover the truth behind it all. To become the hero he’s always imagined.
Time and again journeys are made with no regard to the distances involved and the reader is just expected to accept this. I was reminded of early Bulldog Drummond novels where the hero can get out of any situation along the lines of ‘…and with a bound he was free.’
This a shame, as there is the basis of a really first class novel here and all that was needed was a good editor to tell the author where he was going wrong.
