|I have never been the type to be drawn to books that the main character is a hard core military man. Usually the purpose of the books are just to kill and blow crap up. WAIT! Before you get the wrong idea Gibbs and his mates are ex-military that have turned mercenaries in this book but there so many incredible elements to it also. The story takes place not that far into the future where a drastic climate change is taking place. One of the most realistic future scenarios that I have read. An association of billionaires are using their power and money to take control of all the worlds remaining resources. Within every group there are the good and the bad individuals. Due to the changing world who can you trust? Now that Gibbs is out of the military he is looking for some mercenary work but it is not as easy to get this type of work as it was before such the dramatic change in society took place. Gibbs and his mates get an offer to do a job from the billionaires. The question is should they put themselves in danger for a group they do not know if they can trust? This is such a well written book. This is not the type of book that you will be able to guess what will happen next. All the characters are well written. Marinovich has a great way of giving you just what you need about each character keeping you guessing about who the true villains really are. Marinovich in life is also a wildlife photographer and conservationist giving him a great outlook on what the planet and society will come to in the not so far future. The society portrayed I think was dead on and quite unnerving. CELT will keep you on your toes, you will read past you bedtime, and keep saying just one more chapter. |
Who would I recommend this book to?
To readers who love action and adventure, for the ones who like the battle for good and evil, also all those in between, but also this would be a good look forward for readers who are concerned with what the future will look like.
"Thank You Wayne Marinovich for allowing me to give CELT an honest review"
