Reviews - What do customers think about Ex Machina (Adept Series)?
excellent! Sep 9, 2007
When I began "Ex Machina" I was disappointed because it didn't seem to be a continuation of the previous "Adept" book. I kept wondering "where are Susan and David, why is the book all about this irritating character Jo?" Changing perspective so completely was a brave move by the author, but he does pull it off. "Ex Machina" answers some questions about what Susan and David discovered in "Adept" and is a good story on its own. The door is still open for more and I look forward to the author continuing the story.
Still a Good Read Oct 14, 2006
The First book Adept seemed for some reason to have been lumped with the Da Vinci Code. I can see some slight similarities to it but Adept stands on its own merits and those expecting a virtul mirror image of the Dan Brown book were in for a disappointment. For one thing this book has an edge of humour to it. Something I must have missed in the Da Vinci Code.
I enjoyed Adept very much. I thought the writing was fresh and free flowing and the storyline was interesting and innovative. Some other reviewers say that Ex Machina is not as good and I must admit that to a degree I tend to agree with them. That is not to say that the book is not worth reading. I believe that it has its own merits. But when an author has had a successful novel and his next book is basically a continuation of the story, perhaps subconsciously he or she tries a little too hard to better or at least match the previous volume.
Ex Machina is a continuation of the life threatening problems that still face Susan Milton and David Braun, brought together after the theft of an ancient relic. A relic that has mystical powers, not least of which are great strength and a life extended far beyond the span of mere mortals.
David an insurance investigator and Susan an American university scholar were brought together in the previous book Adept and with the help of Susan's mentor Professor Shaw have moved some way to solving the mystery of the `Marker' an ancient relic. One year later and the `Marker' is still missing, but David and Susan must stay undercover. Somewhere out there the relics previous owners are searching too, and they have an ally they don't even know about. Her name is Jo Hallett.
