Cobalt Blue by Matthew Reilly
Rate this book
Clear rating
Whereas this novella can hardly compare with Matthew Reilly's best (I rate 'Temple', 'Contest' and 'Area-'7 as his top-three) 'Cobalt Blue' doesn't really stack up against 'Hell Island' either.
From the start it looks like a ninety-minute movie scrip

'Wind River' is preceded by a short story, which is unrelated to the text that follows. But once you get into the main yarn it's a cut above the pulp-fiction novellas so prevalent in the genre. Yes, it's got a mysterious stranger a couple of feisty g ...more
