Just finished Terminal Phase. What a ride. Wonderful story. Compelling characters. The best book I’ve read all year.
Just finished Terminal Phase and it was awesome. Author ought to warn readers not to begin without whiplash protection from the speed th aa t the story moves. Loved it,loved it loved it, thanks Mr Hooks. Best read since your last one.
Just read A Cold Day in Mosul, excellent read and I happy to go and buy every other book I can find you’ve written and put my money where my eyes and mind just went, awesome read.
Just finished Terminal Phase,it is my third Ethan Galaal book the best yet loved the story the partnership with Bretta,the technical info on the various gadgets used in the surveillance they needed and a great finish.Look forward to the next one.Thanks to the author for the advanced copy to review.Anthony Brown.
Terminal Phase is ripped out of todays’s headlines and firmly in the here and now. Enough detail for the techies and action aplenty. Certainly in the page-turner class. Highly recommended.
Just finished Terminal Phase. What a great book. I’m an old spy vs spy cold war age and this brings us into the current age. Fast paced and easy to read from page one to the last page. Hard to put down once you pick it up. Plan on total immersion into the characters and the world today. You won’t be disappointed.
Isaac Hooke has just converted a life long Sci-Fi reader to his brand of Thriller. I have read others like Dan Brown but Isaac has delved into a new deeper level of attention to detail not found in other books. I will anxiously wait to read anything he writes. I only wish that I didn’t read so fast so I could enjoy his worlds a little longer. 46dianes is correct. Isaac’s books are hard to put down once you start reading.
Enjoyed “a cold day in Mosul. Kind of a modern day Indiana Jones type ride.
Just finished Forever Gate———Awsome!!!!!!!
Read the advance copy of Flagship, a SciFi novel. It takes place entirely in space, in a future world where humans are advanced galaxy travelers. I thoroughly enjoyed all of the action, characters and story line. It was a novel that made me think, and required a bit of an attempt to understand the complexity of characters. In other words, it was a great read for taking me to another place for a while. I read it quickly since it pulled me in so thoroughly, and I wanted to know more. It was the type of book that I wanted to be longer, and to continue with the next phase of the story. Hopefully there will be more of this novel to come. As with all of this author’s books, I highly recommend this novel.
Just finished “The Forevergate” (coincidentally on the 25th anniversary of my 42nd birthday). It was superb! As a life-long SF reader, I rate it amongst the best and will be looking for more titles from this author.
I have one question: why does “Hoodwink” sound like “Yoda” sometimes, he does? Is it to distinguish him as not really a human?
Thoroughly enjoyed your short story “The Laurasians!”
The idea of “Create you own adventure ” was utilized in a few early computer games.
Never saw the books myself but seems complicated to pull off!
Wow! To find human skeleton of dinosaur remains, what a concept!
Just boarding Flagship. I’m sure to enjoy the adventure!
Do you have a schedule for future “A Captain’s Crucible” Books?
Any plans for continuing the ATLAS series beyond book 3?
Michael, check out the Alien War Series, and Argonauts
Just finished the 9 book series of Forever Gate. Amazing, original story! Truly loved it!
Well here we are
Via amazon kindle app I have read some good Mil Sci fi but Issac, your in the top league. the creme du creme.
In fact you are the one author whose works are bought rather than “shared” on amazon.
Thank you for so many hours enjoyable reading and producing novels that have you shouting “Next” time after time.
The Argonauts series is so much more than a story I think I speak for all Argonautees that the characters depicted make it even more enjoyable
You know what I mean lol.
Keep up the good work.
Hi Isaac. I would like to beta read for you. I have read almost all the books you have published. I have just started Rades Fury. I am a book reviewer and I sometimes help authors with editing or pointing out word errors. I would like to do that for you as I really enjoy your work.
I look forwatd to chatting with you.
I have read all your books except the forever gate series which I will be reading shortly.
I really love the way you keep everyone in suspense on what is going on.
I hope you have more books coming out on Rade and Shaw I would like to know what happened
to Alex and Sil as young kids a nd young adults.
thank you for the great reading…
I also want to know what happened to Shaw & Alex? I read Mech Vs Dino where they went back in time with the Phant & were rescued , but was not in the next book with Rade & sil 70 years later!
Just read Star Warrior and found it to be absolutely brilliant and could not put it down until I finished it.
First, are you truly as young as you appear? If so, you put out a great book for being so young.
A small pet peeve. You use the term “these/those ones” fairly often or I would not bother to mention it. Perhaps it is a Canadian thing? Anyway, in your line of work you may want to stop as it is poor English. You just need to say these or those. “Ones” added is superfluous. Never having been to your part of Canada, it could be a colocquialism that others will notice. Not a bad thing, but . . .
I must tell ou that the Rade Gallal books have been superb and my personal favorite.
I forgot to mention that befor retiring from industry (my second career) I was a Corporate Vice President with L3 Technologies, responsible for new business. As such, one of my personal responsibilities was all proposals we submitted to clients valued at over $50 million. I have read and re-edited more proposals than I care to think of. I was the final quality arbiter. Each one had to be as perfect as humanly possible, especially when your competition was the likes of Lockheed, Northrop, or General Dynamics. We grew to over $14 billion before I retired in 2007.
I do not make this offer lightly, but If you ever want someone to be an advance publication reader please drop me an email. No one is perfect, but getting as close as you can is helpful.
Where can I leave a review? I haven’t seen any [;ace yet…
Mil-Sci-FI reader, love all things Rade-Team and Captains. Any chance these 2 series might get some new books?
