Arctic Wargame is an action filled thriller from a new author, Ethan Jones. The story is set in northern Canada where 2 mysteries icebreakers are seen and then vanish. The Canadian government send Justin Hall to investigate. In the process of solving the mystery, he and his team are stranded, then steal U.S. helicopters, and help repel an invasion.

The action is fast-paced and well written. The plot has several interesting turns, not the least of which is who is behind the plot. The writing itself is crisp, with enough details on military weapons to lend credence to the writing, but not too much as to bore the average reader.

Perhaps the only minor flaw is the characters do lack some depth. They are interesting people, but the author does not expand greatly on their backgrounds. Perhaps in the second book in this series? Then again, for a thriller, it's the action that counts and Jones has that down.

Overall, I was very pleasantly surprised by this book. And I'm looking forward to buying the next book in the series! ( )

Canada, Russia, Denmark or the United States, who should control the waters in the Canadian Arctic waters. Right now, the Canadians own it, but who is trying to control it? Two unidentified icebreakers start an investigation by the Canadian Intelligence Service. Agent Justin Hall is determined to find out who they are and what they want. Taking his team into some of the coldest areas, the are about to fight for Canada, and their lives.

Well written, page turner, who can you trust and who do you believe. If you like adventure from the eyes of an agent doing his job, with a touch of romance thrown in for good measure, read Arctic Wargame. ( )

Another GREAT debut novel. This time from a Canadian lawyer. I only read indie authors and continue to be highly impressed by the fine offerings by the newbies.

This book is about an invasion of Arctic Canada by an implausible aggressive European mini-country. Ethan makes that implausible plot line work using a twist on the aggressors. The Canadian characters, including the indigenous arctic dwellers,are well crafted. You can actually "feel" them and the relationships between them.

The storyline is very fast paced and never really lapses. I was engrossed in the story and found myself withing it was much longer so I could keep reading. The Arctic Wargame is highly recommended for anyone that enjoys a good action tale.

Buy this book and support this author. I want him to continue writing. ( )
