Title: The King of Plagues
Series: Joe Ledger #3
Editor: Jonathan Maberry
Rating: 1 of 5 Stars
Genre: SF
Pages: 492 / 160
Words: 151K / 50K



My Thoughts:

By the 30% mark Maberry had used the term “hate crime” 15 times. I quit reading when he used the term to justify a muslim special forces guy beating people so badly that they ended up in the Emergency Room because they used words he didn’t like. It’s called Free Speech, for good AND bad. When you start telling people what words they can and cannot say or use, you have entered the Deep State.

So adios Maberry, you confirmed my fears about you and I’ll be avoiding you like the plague from now on.

Rating: 1 out of 5.

                    1. Well, that was more because of content.
                      A junkie hacker gets recruited by Slater’s group of total misfits and they’re supposed to do something “good”. I gave up partway through season 1 because I found too many objectionable things.
                      Lashaan from had talked about, if not reviewed it and it peaked my interest.

                      I like Slater as an actor though, so he was actually the draw for the series for me 🙂

  1. So he joined the virtual signaling brigade? Shame. I wish authors would keep their political leanings and ideologies out of their books, I honestly don’t care what they are as long as you write well and tell a good story. Unfortunately these days so many authors feel they can’t sell well or get picked up unless they make it clear they are “in the tribe.”

  2. Kind of odd for the author to justify a hate crime with a crime (assault) … it’s like they’re preaching how you should be tolerant. Unless you can beat people up. Then you totally shouldn’t.

    doesn’t sound like it’s all that great a reading experience

    1. If Maberry would be consistent with his principles I could have possibly gone on, but the leftist liberal is always going on about non-violence under any circumstances (except when they say otherwise) so I can’t overlook that.

      I’d have no problem with someone breaking someone’s jaw who was burning an American flag. But if that person was was simply badmouthing America, I’d hate them but I’d let them be.
