Plague War - Plague Series, Book 1

While it took me a bit to get into the book, I found Plague War to be a very good read. Part of it is that I found the characters and situation believable - not only within geographic and psychological frames, but within the scientific and...

Plague Zone

Plague Zone was, for me, a little better read than Plague War , but that might be due to being familiar with the set-up.  While it is preferable to read the books in sequence, each can, I think, also be read independently of each other...

Talons of the Condor - Sequel to Condor One

Mad Blood

I found Mad Blood to be an interesting read, mainly due to Dante, Brenden, and their assorted relatives, friends, and acquaintances. Each character has his or her own issues and I really liked how each of them worked their way through, arou...
