... and BOOK TWO
New..! Extract from a Book Club review of the earlier eBook edition.
"I thoroughly enjoyed the plot of the book. I found it to be exciting and certainly novel. I found myself turning the pages quicker and quicker as the larger plot unfoolded, following along with evey twist. I was right there with the crew during the helicopter flights, thinking up new strategies to find the missing weapons.
All in all, the story line is excellent and certainly thrilling. I would recommend this book to readers who enjoy futuristic technology and action packed top-secret military missions... "
Official Review: Points of View - The Weapon
The teenager’s abilities were put to the test when a terrorist group broke into the professor’s laboratory and stole prototypes of a new weapon that he was working on. The book revolves around the involvement of Captain Horace Mayberry, the teenager, in recovering the stolen weapons.
I loved several aspects of the book. The author did an amazing job with the choice of and development of characters. For instance, the protagonist of the story is a teenager who takes on huge tasks in a special unit of the government. This made Horace a superhero. He helped to take down a terrorist group with his bravery coupled with the use of his special eyes. Another likable character was Aubrey Jackson. He worked closely with Horace in all the dangerous missions.
Through the recovery of the lost weapons, the author gives the reader a picturesque aerial view of parts of Europe. Horace, who lived in Kensington, got a chance to travel to other parts of England and Europe. The countries that Horace and his team went to in their search include Scotland, France, and Austria. Austria’s features i.e., mountains, valleys, and the dozens of old castles made it the most beautiful.
The only part of the author’s writing that did not meet my expectations was the development of scenes. During the recovery missions, the author makes the encounter with the terrorist group members very short. This is the part where I expected to get some real action and some sort of resistance from the terrorists. However, after Horace’s eyes did their magic, everything else seemed to be swept away quickly. I wished that the author could have added some meaningful twists and turns to spice up the scenes. If it were possible, I would give the book 3.5 stars. However, the author managed to keep me glued to the pages by creating a suspenseful story. Therefore, I give the book 4 out of 4 stars. Readers who love Sci-Fi books will really enjoy reading the book. I look forward to reading the next book in the series to learn more about the special abilities of the professor’s weapons.’s weapons.
Points of View is an exciting kick-off to what is sure to be a great series. I’m eager to continue the adventures of young Horace!
