Forsaken Wrath by Alexander Ferrick
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
In Forsaken Wrath by Alexander Farrick, Bartimaeus No Last Name tells the story of how he and Nicholas (Nick) Reed, AKA Scorpio, meet and become partners (and eventually good friends). We get to know them and read some of the adventures they experience during those first months together.
This is titled Book 1 of the Scorpio Files, implying more is to come. It is a very short, ninety-eight pages (in my kindle edition) so it easily could have been a longer, more involved stand-alone novel. Based on the length alone, I would label this more a novella than a novel. There are some pretty glaring editing errors; you instead of your, its instead of it's, words not separated by a space many times throughout the text, etc... But those are technical notations from someone who finds those for a living. Speaking strictly from an entertainment point of view, Forsaken wins with a fun, action packed story and fairly likable characters. I see this series being popular with fans of the action fiction genre.
