Although the previous three books in this series have been entertaining and quick reads, certain aspects were beginning to wear on me (too much narrative summary, repetitiveness, easily defeated villains) and in this installment those elements were especially grating.
I see the appeal of these stories—the bad guys are rich and mean and Nameless helps exact poetic justice on them with the help of a mysterious, well connected group—but this one got a bit too cutesy with its ...more
This was another enjoyable trip with Nameless and his band of vigilante’s. This series goes from strength to strength, raising more questions that it does answers. This is one of my favourite episodes. I feel Nameless is starting to develop more as a character. There are hints that Nameless may be starting to get his memory back. I wonder where this will lead. Will he remember who he is? What will the figures in in the dark pulling his strings have to say ...more
Another good one in this series. Nameless is turning out to be a great character. In other reviews, I said that he's a cross between Reacher and Odd. I take that back. Nameless is Nameless. He's become his own person in my mind.
Still top notch but the repeating of certain things is a little tedious, I understand the need for it though in case someone reads the books out of sync which can happen. But that aside I enjoyed Red Rain just as much as I did the previous stories. Still wish they were longer though lol. ...more
What can be said about this series of stand alone books other than that they are riveting and fast paced, with a main character who has no memory beyond two years ago. Whether by choice or not, with no prior memories, some would say he metes out justice, but all he and those who provide for his needs seek is the truth. These books belong on your must read list.
I very much recommend this series!
This is book four, the first three held my attention without distraction, the fourth is as good, yes, but for some reason, I felt as though there was something missing. Not sure I can pinpoint why. However, that is not a criticism, simply an observation. I look forward to book five with enthusiasm.
Still a great story and a good read. I’m all about truth and justice, vengeance if you like. But the justice served was a little tame for me in this one. I like knowing that the good guy is going to win but I really want the bad guy to suffer as much as possible!
Before writing anything for a review of the book. For those of you who recognize the name and wonder...no coincidence.
This episode is more pulp than the others. It is also a lot shorter than the rest of the shorts.
Is Nameless' amnesia starting to fade?
Nameless is sent to a small town, where a fire had been set, that burned a bookstore with a woman inside and her children upstairs. The woman is badly burned and her children died. This book, has AN EPIC ENDING!!!!
LOL, Yepper, I'm off to read the next book!!!
Another procedural episode of this series. Standard formula now: mysterious intro by Nameless, Nameless digging into criminal past and crimes, POV of criminal going down.
Love this series and especially since since each book is short as I'm going blind. Nameless is quite the character. No memory, falls asleep within a minute. How I wish. Each story makes you wonder what's next and will Nameless ever remember. Starting the next as soon as it's loaded.
Another good Nameless story, though this one seemed much more straightforward and shorter than the other three. However, an overarching meta-story is beginning to appear more frequently, which I’m excited to keep reading about to see where it leads.
Nameless once again crusades for justice. He seeks to avenge the death of two children and the disfigurement of their mother from a fire. These was quick read and not as satisfying as previous books in the series. I still like this author and will continue the series
