Title: The Zenda Vendetta
Series: Time Wars
Author: Simon Hawke
Rating: 3 of 5 Stars
The Time Commando’s head out to mop up the last of the time terrorists, who are hellbent on causing a time split and potentially ending the universe.
However, the Commando’s don’t have all the info, as their commander has held back some very personal revelations.
First book where I hadn’t read the original book this was based on. To be honest, I don’t feel like I missed a thing and I also have no desire to search and read The Prisoner of Zenda.
That rat Mongoose [how ironic] is finally killed for real.
This was mainly about the head of the Time Commando’s, Forrester and how his past actions are coming back to bite him, and everyone else in his timestream, in the butt.
Passable action but not quite enough to take your attention away from the lack of characterization and overall b-list writing.
Mediocre is the best word I can use to describe this. Good enough to keep reading for awhile but it does mean that if things don’t change, that this series’ death knell has tolled.
