Review: ARCADIAN GENESIS by Greig Beck (Alex Hunter 0.5)
Although the series is now at four novels plus this novella, ARCADIAN GENESIS serves as an introduction to.the character Alex Hunter, and to the ops group of which he becomes such an integral part. It clarifies some specifics of personality about Hunter, which color his actions and decisions as part of HAWCS. I found the story line thrilling, given its near-apocalyptic-potential overtones. Violence is rampant, but effective in the story context. Oddly enough for a thriller, I found I quickly developed empathy, even for the characters only.temporarily "on stage, " and consequently found my heartstrings tugged repeatedly.
