Fresh Fiction Review

War Hawk
Grant Blackwood, James Rollins

Reviewed by Magdalena Johansson

Thriller | Action

Former Army Ranger Tucker Wayne is contacted by a former army colleague that needs his help. She and her son are on the run from ruthless assassins who will stop at nothing to kill her. Tucker discovers several of her colleagues have died and the traces are leading back to a very powerful man who has no problem starting wars to get what he wants. Now Tucker and his war dog Kane must find out the truth and stop the man from succeeding with his diabolic plan.

I first read about Tucker Wayne in the short story TRACKER and I instantly liked both Tucker and Kane. WAR HAWK is the second book in the Tucker Wayne series, but I yet to read THE KILL SWITCH, which is the first book in the series. However, it didn't bother me much when I started this book. James Rollins starts off the book in such a way that you quickly get a grip on the characters without feeling lost and I was hooked right from the start with an interesting scene from WW2 that has special meaning to the storyline.

I enjoyed reading WAR HAWK very much. I have loved James Rollins Sigma series for years and it's really great to read this spin-off series. I love the connection to the Sigma books, but I also enjoy this is a series that without any problem can stand on its two legs (or four) without support from the characters in the Sigma books. Tucker such a great character and I love his partnership with Kane. I think Tucker and Kane's relationship is what really makes the book special. And, reading about their way of working together and their "communications" is amazing. The story in WAR HAWK can be a bit technological, and sometimes discussions can go over my head. But, I don't mind as long as it doesn't get boring, and WAR HAWK never gets boring.

I think WAR HAWK will appeal to people that love to read adventure books. The book is well written, intriguing and thrilling. I'm glad I have THE KILL SWITCH because I'm really looking forward to reading it as well.
