3.5 stars It was a fun, quick, action-packed read. If you are looking fora deep literary masterpiece you are in the wrong place. It's meant to be blood, guts and glory and that's what it is. ( )

A very grim book. I'm not sure how realistic this 'super non-human army is at this point in time, but I'm sure experiments are being conducted.

I liked the book very much, it is as fast-paced as the other book about Scarecrow I read.
The only downside is, that it has only 108 pages... ( )

From Amazon:

Captain Shane Schofield and his elite team of marines is about to discover . . There is no hell like a man-made one. It is an island that doesn’t appear on any maps. A secret location where the government conducts classified experiments. Experiments that have gone terribly wrong. When all contact with the mysterious island is suddenly and inexplicably lost, Captain Shane Schofield and four crack Special Forces units parachute in. Nothing prepares them for what they find—the island is a testing ground for a deadly breed of genetically enhanced super-soldiers. You could say they’ve just entered hell, but this place is much, much worse.

My Thoughts:

121 pages...the book description is nearly longer than the book. I will have to say that it is 121 pages of non-stop action as I have found all of Matthew Reilly's books are. It was a well thought out plot and came together very well. on't expect a lot of character development ... almost no one in his books except "Scarecrow" and "Mother" live long enough to worry about development. However...if you want a story that moves at nearly the speed of light, there isn't a writer alive who can match Reilly on that score. ( )
