I rate this book 4.5 stars and recommend to all book lovers looking for an exciting, gripping read.

Amniwar is not a book that I would normally go for, however, I am a big fan of this author and I wanted to read something totally different from Adam Reese and to see if he could hold my attention and draw me in to this unique read.

Amniwar was so much more than what I was expecting it is a complex read following several different character's that you will need to take the time to read and really d

Adam Reese's writing is infectious. His ability to write in multi-genres is equally impressive.

This page turning story follows the main character Adam Lambright and his quest to discover the secret that his father doesn't want anyone to find but Adam. Secret theories. I couldn't put it down. There are so many twist and WTF moments you will not be disappointed. And OMG I loved Sandy.

Favorite Scene: Sandy and Abi's "adventure" at the harbor.

Amniwar follows a cast of characters who are deep into a government conspiracy. Reese's descriptions concerning horror or gore were fantastically chilling and well done. The sexual content of the book seemed like forced scenes without much relevance to the plot. There isn't a female character I relate too, and most of them only seem to be brought when they have a part to play in the protagonist's desires. I think strong females are needed in Science Fiction, and that they shouldn't have to be se ...more

A great story for those who love conspiracy theories and scenarios where the world as we know it is no longer. The author does a great job keeping you in the moment and making you feel as if you are right there with the characters.

The book at times was confusing as there were a lot of characters to keep track of so the reader needs to pay close attention to all the details as you try to figure out what everyone's motives are.

This is a Sci-fi book from Adam. He has done it again with this book. It is detailed and enthralling. When you start you won't want to put it down. It gives you the information you need to except that this book can happen. I recommend it for anyone who enjoys getting lost in a book. Great read, I look forward to the next installment.

I would describe Amniwar as a SiFi thriller, a different genre for Adam Reece and because of his excellent track record I decided to embrace the type of book I would usually shy away from, I'm glad I did!

I don't want to re write the synopsis, so I'll just say our unlikely hero, Aaron Lambright is left facing mystery, intrigue and inner demons when he receives word of his Father's death.

I found Amniwar to be a conspiracy theorist's dream, I don't want to give away spoilers but if you feel governi

My rating 4.5 Stars

When you start this book be prepared for it to consume you. Take it slow, invest yourself into the book as there is plenty going on and you don't want to miss anything.
As with a Sci/fi thriller there are many characters and all play a significant role within the story. Conspiracy theories are ripe and just when you think people can be trusted, boom, twist upon twist that you just don't see coming.

Adam has certainly branched out into a genre in which I don't normally read but a

Adam has done it again. he drew me into a story, made me fall in love with the characters, and i got lost. i couldnt believe there was no more when i turned the last page.

amniwar is so much different from his other books, with that same touch of adam we are familiar with.

Amniwar is not your typical scifi book either. its almost frightening how true to life something like this could be. The characters are relateable, and you can bond with them instantly.

my only problem is that it wasnt long en

Best movie you'll ever read!

Although this book is completly out of my relm of normal reads, I am a fan of this author. If I said I was not lost at times I would be lying and wouldnt be doing anyone any sort of service. I admire his writing style. He puts you dirctly in the moment .. you are in the "now" of the story.
There are several people that make up this story and it is the type that if your going in for a quick read.. its not your thing. He is so good at his craft that you have to read it a

This is not the typical genre that I read but I loved Adam's other books so I wanted to give AmniWar a fair chance. And I loved it. It had corrupt government officials, conspiracy theories, and innocent people that were being hunted down for secrets they didn't know they had. I really couldn't put it down and that ending about killed me. Well done Adam!!

Totally new genre and author to me........ and I loved it! It was fast paced and had so many layers to the story, which lead to me flicking the pages on my kindle at a record rate. I found the characters well developed and the detailed story, enthralling. Can't wait to read Eversoul now, as I need to find out what happens next!

Interesting story

I'm not a fan of sci fi but this has as much of thriller element to it as sci fi which I do enjoy. The author has an amazing imagination and the book is well written, the action is exciting and flows nicely. I have so many questions now, who is good, who are the villains, who can be trusted. I need to read the next in the series

This was the first book I read by Adam Reese. This is not the kind of story I usually read, but I liked it.
The story is very well written and I really enjoyed the suspense.
The characters are very interesting.

We are plunged into a world of many players, and there seems to be several things going on in this book. I believe it is the first in a series, and it sets things up well. Governments are involved, and looking for a secret that only Aaron seems to be able to figure out. Lots of different people and situations are introduced in this book, and I can't wait to read more to see how they come together and what happens!

Adam Reese is one of my favourite authors and I freaking love all his books. There is always something special in Adam Reese’s books that make me go insane. Fuck, I am always on a crazy bender but that is so beautiful because his books are always on my mind. Amniwar is just one of those books that proved to linger in my mind because it was amazing. It was a phenomenal book that combined a unique and exciting story that made my heart quicken in the best way ever. Adam Reese definitely came up wit ...more

>I am an independent reviewer. This book is the first in a series and ends in a cliffhanger. Aaron is a drunk living on his boat, trying to save his relationship, while being tempted by his assistant. Landon is Aaron’s brother. He is in the military and is confused when very odd things start happening. The death of Landon’s and Aaron’s father bring about the plot twists in this story revolving around Aaron, Landon and their uncle, Ron.

I'm not one for sci-fi/fantasy novels, they're not usually my cup of tea; the same goes to TV shows and movies too. But I admit, this was quite a good read! I've come to learn that Adam is a talented writer with a brilliant imagination.

We're introduced to an array of characters with completely different scenes, which is where I found myself being completely thrown for a loop and was pretty confused with the significant of each scene. By the end of the book, I understood a little bit more of what

Another new genre to me, but a very interested story that kept you wondering what was going to come next. The book starts off graphic and kinda has you wondering what the heck is going to happen. Very Sci Fi meets Mystery, meets Thriller. Very graphic, but when isn't on of the authors books graphic. It was an interesting read. I was able to read the book prior to being released and then after, the concept was capturing.

Aaron Lambright has to go through so many different things and emotions and

I love this author so of course I had to check out his new release. Sci fi is not my usual choice, but if it is yours and you are thinking green aliens - Wrong! This was a good read that could be reality, are we sure it's not. The Lambrights have a secret, the government want to know that secret at all cost.

OMG!!! Whether you are a science fiction fan or not, this is one book you have GOT to read!!!!

One of the things I absolutely LOVE about Adam's books is, he writes his stories in a way that literally pulls you into the book and ignites your thought process. This book is does it in full force! It makes you stop and think of the reality of what is really happening at the top and who actually has the control, pulling the strings.

I absolutely could not put this book down! If this isn't the genre you

This book had lots of depth and the characters were easy to connect with. However I did find it a little confusing at times and had to skip back a few times to get a grip with the plot which I didn't really feel became clear until three quarters of the way through, that being said sci fi is not my usual genre. I did like this book I just didn't love it.

Not my usual genre but I have to say I couldn't put this book down. The book was like a thrill ride that you never want to get off of. This was my first book by Adam Reese and I have to say he has made me come back for more. Amazing story line I felt like I had to put the book together like a giant jigsaw puzzle and I loved every moment of it
