Men in a black hovervan grabbed Ana's brother off the skywalk as she took him to school. That was sixteen years ago, but Ana hasn't let it go. It doesn't help that their parents left her to fend for herself. And it definitely doesn't help that Memo still sends her cryptic messages from, well, somewhere.

Ana took the job at the US Intelligence Agency so she could use their r

The Valkyrie Project is a good read. It's characters are well-written. The action sequences are great. The dialogue flows easily. The technology is very imaginative. The storyline is a mix of good guys versus bad guys with a personal quest and a little romance to make it very interesting.

The book does end on a high note and a cliffhanger. I'm going to be watching for the sequel and more from Nels Wadycki.

An exciting story taking place in the not-too-distant future, this novel has surprises and wrinkles around every corner. Wadycki is a master of the unusual analogy, using allusions to remote and unusual activity to describe current action. The writing is well-done and interesting. However, I didn't go five stars because the writing is uneven. The analogies and descriptions are overpowering in some sections and conspicuously absent in others. Noticing the difference takes away from a genuinely ...more
Interesting story with some nice twists. The main characters are nicely defined, but secondary characters are a little underdeveloped.

Lots of action and witty comments. The pace is remincent of Bond and Destroyer books. A fun read overall.

If you like this, you will probalby enjoy "Serving in Time" an old book about time tampering.

This book kept the action coming from the opening pages right up to the end. I would have liked a little more detail and background on some of the side characters and the agency, but it wasn't jarring without the added detail. Looking forward to the next one.

Well written fast paced! SciFi secret agent government conspiracy. What's not to like? Protagonist is a driven individual with one goal 'find her brother'. Along the way she develops a sense of worth, trust and cynicism that is both real and believable. Waiting for second installment of the series.

I wanted to like this book. It has some fun world building and a plot device that I enjoy in my books. Unfortunately, it suffers from a lot of problems. First off, there are a number of typos and grammatical errors especially towards the end of the book that throw me out of the flow trying to decipher the intent of the sentences. Secondly, it depends on too much suspension of disbelief in the actions of the other characters. The world seems to revolve around the main character and she can do ...more

I know it's not perfect, but I enjoy rereading it, and it's still better than a lot of books I've read.
