ARC Review - The Plague Forge by Jason M. Hough (The Dire Earth Cycle, #3)

The Plague Forge
by Jason M. Hough

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

July, 2013 - Review on hold! And don't think it isn't killing me!

September, 2013 - Signed, sealed and delivered beyond expectations, The Plague Forge by Jason Hough brings his Dire Earth Cycle to a brilliant conclusion! Intense, detailed and flying by at breakneck speed in a race against time and an unknown alien faction with an equally unknown purpose, The Plague Forge holds on to its final secrets until the very end. Imagine a rollercoaster powering to the precipice, then plunging downward, leaving you breathless, waiting for your stomach to catch up, and that amazing adrenaline rush that makes you grin silly as you pull into the final stop, completely satisfied and ready to do it again after a short breather! The Plague Forge is that good!

Jason Hough is a master at his craft! He makes each scene real, I did the mental look around, seeing it all. With larger than life characters, surprising heroes, mindless SUBS, evil, manipulating power mongers, and the dark, looming unknown from beyond, I was living in the moment in each book! Did I lose a few too many friends in the battle? Yes! Did I witness true bravery in action? Yes! Did I see tons of gore, guts and brutality? Yes! Did I find the hard-fought resolution and hope for the future? Yes! Do I want more from the mind and pen of this great Sci-fi author? YES! Am I keeping the gun I used in the fights? No, silly, this was fiction, but I would like to return to see what is happening now!

I received an ARC edition from NetGalley and Random House Publishing Group - Del Rey Spectra in exchange for my honest review.
