Black Heart (Revenge Trilogy Book 3) (English Edition) Reviews
Die Triologie finde ich spannend, teilweise auch blutig.Ich habe die 3 Bücher innerhalb kürzester Zeit gelesen und war in den Büchern immer ein bisschen hin und her gerissen, wer eigentlich der Gute im Buch ist und wer nicht.
I had actually never seen anything by Mike Nicol before I unwittingly stumbled onto his second book (in a bookshop) in the Mace Bishop Trilogy (Killer Country). Suffice to say that I was hooked from the very beginning and it was one of those books where you hate it because it comes to an end. Thereafter I was determined to find book 3 which I did on Amazon and bought it. Suffice to say if Mike Nicil does not start a brand new Mace Bishop Trilogy as in 4, 5 and 6, I will be dramatically hugely unimpressed. His characters are awesome, the way the author brings them to life, unfolds each of the sub plots and rolls them into the main plot is story telling at its best. So Mr Nicol.....you CANNOT now permanently move away from Mace and Pylon .......please!!!
Eerste boek goed, tweede boek ok, derde boek het beste. Zou van deze schrijver zeker zijn volgende boeken lezen. Sure thing
This is the the third book in the series. Black Heart is great because all of the situations left hanging finally get some level of resolution. It is an excellent series and I would suggest you purchase it. But I highly suggest that prospective readers purchase Payback and Killer Country at the very same time as Black Heart (or have read them). Because the way the author wrote the series was in a manner that reminds me of a soap opera that simply doesn't resolve itself in the first two books so you are forced to wait until you reach Black Heart for answers. This series when read altogether is actually quick and satisfying reading because you get the big picture and the small details stretched out over three books. This is not a happily ever after series for the characters which gives it more of a real life quality. There would be a temptation to read this book first, but I suggest reading them as written, because characters reappear with more information and the author does not dwell on repeating incidents in the first two books so a reader would miss out not knowing the back stories. This series is unique because it has a truly sinister female character. I actually wasn't sure about her but over three books she developed into a quite memorable character. There are male villains but truly you are surprised with the creepy female lead quietly running all kinds of plots against the main character Bishop who it turns out she has a murky history with. Oddly the female villian is a strange match to Bishop in the mind games and retribution enacted. The author is clever to explain how the female developed over quite a long time into the truly nasty piece of work and a portion of me wanted to sympathize with her but she was such a crazy, intelligent, damaged, annoying person I simply wanted a good end for her. The author did write her well enough for me to wait for any form of resolution. The main character Bishop is a clever man but loses his focus occasionally due to the continual attempts to get at him through his family. Bishop's partner Pylon could have had a larger part because he was well written with interesting observations but he was eventually part of the background rather that a partner in the mayhem. Purchase this book and the series because you will be kept interested with compelling characters in stories that twist and turn but come together in the end.
The third book in the trilogy which revolves around Sheemina February's quest for revenge against Mace Bishop, an ex-freedom fighter, arms dealer, and intelligence operative, now a partner in a security company providing protection for VIP's and the well-to-do visiting Cape Town, South Africa.Gritty, fast-paced, authentic and scary would be good words to describe this novel which brings the story of Smeemina's revenge to a close. The novel plays off over a period of just a few days, and during that period the stakes grow high -- life or death.This book also does a great job of showing off Cape Town in every respect: its beauty, squalor, snobbishness, charity, pleasure and pain. The impressive thing that Nicols achieves is that he weaves these descriptive and editorial passages so tightly into the narrative that the reader becomes totally immersed in the whole experience.I couldn't put it down.
