Reading The Ocean Raiders, the reader can easily picture the story as it happens, playing out like a movie – action sequences, cutting away to different characters in other locations and time periods, backstabbing characters, murders and thefts to solve…it’s all connected together in a way that makes sense, moves the plot along, and is exciting to read. I found it hard to put down and thoroughly enjoyed the tale. There were a couple of small mistakes that needed editing – a misspelling or punctuation mistake here and there, but they were small and didn’t hinder the tale much. This was a very enjoyable tale, with the plot and characters well-thought-out and intriguing plot twists. Even though I haven’t read the first book, I didn’t feel like I was missing out by starting with this, though I’m sure I would enjoy the background information from book one, the relevant details to enjoy this sequel were provided in the dialogue and plot throughout the book and made sense. The Omni is a fascinating plot point that I look forward to learning more about in the next book in the series. I will definitely be recommending this book to others.
