"The Society of Orion", by Gerald J. Kubicki &Kristopher Kubicki
This book is another short book to join those I have received lately and I thank the authors for providing an e-copy for my thoughts.
Although short just under 160 pages it is nevertheless an exciting and captivating read that introduces a new type of adventure for Colton Banyon and his sidekicks. I have been a fan of the “Dubious” series for quite a while now and still enjoy the adventures although I admit being somewhat delinquent following the series.
When an author changes slightly his style, adds something different and knows how to give us suspense mixed with a tad of mystical power or a bit of Greek mythology while at the same time sending his protagonists on a wild goose chase around the world for ancient artifacts and for more excitement throws in a mix bag of questionable characters. What’s not to like? The Kubickis have mastered this perfectly.
Of course I do admit not to have enjoyed them equally. As for this spinoff it sets things up for the sequels beautifully. My pet peeve here is it leaves us wanting to see the outcome…. (Thankfully I was provided with the sequel (Book 2: Recovery)
