Panacea by F. Paul Wilson - My Thoughts
Panacea - F. Paul Wilson

F. Paul Wilson is a favourite author of a bunch of my friends and one of them recommended Panacea to me, knowing I enjoy a good thriller.  And I did enjoy this one.  :)

It's a typical thriller in that there's a lot of action, a bunch of twisty turny investigations, bad guys with big guns and lots of power, good guys with a bit of mystery in their pasts, and a possible world-wide disaster to be avoided.  There's also a cute kid and some ancient mythology. 

The book reads lickety split, thanks to some great pacing by the author and chapters that don't run into the 30+ page realm.  I'm a firm believe that short chapters help give a book an aspect of  "can't put it down" or "just one more chapter before I sleep" type of thing.  The characters aren't really complex, but they are believable in a thriller sort of way.  And they're likable - well the good guys anyway - and that, for me, is important.  I especially liked Rick Hayden and his sense of humour.  I also liked him together with Laura Fanning.  There's going to be some romance, somewhere along the line, but there's little of it here, just the pair getting to know each other and starting to trust each other as they search.

I like the idea of ancient history and ancient mysteries being explored and the whole secret societies thing.  I find it all quite fascinating. 

Wilson, I think, is more known for his horror books - Repairman Jack and the like - but there's not much horror in this book.  One scene though.... near the end... well, I guess it was more gross than horror, but EWWWWW!  *LOL*

I think if you enjoy books like the Sigma Force books by James Rollins, you'll enjoy this.  I know I'll be looking to add Book 2 to my library.  :)

The Stuff of Legend, Book 2: The Jungle - Mike Raicht,Brian Smith,Charles Paul Wilson III

This is a great continuation of the series. I liked this one a little bit more than the first book because I feel like it covers more ground and you learn more about the characters. I enjoyed the first book, but it kind of dragged at points with the whole Hopscotch pit stop. This one felt more continuous. There were still stops along the way, but they felt more relevant to the overall story. 

Great story. Can't wait to keep reading.

The Keep
The Keep - F. Paul Wilson Was just as scary the second time as the first, however many years have passed between readings.

Halloween Bingo
The Keep - F. Paul Wilson

 

Not quite a vampire in the traditional sense, but a nice tale about where the vampires legends may have originated.

 

This one takes place during WWII in Romania.

 

Since I already filled my vampire square, I will use this one for my Free square.

Panacea - F. Paul Wilson

A great conspiracy thriller, except for the part where they make Christians the evil ones. That seems to be the thing nowadays, in a lot of books. It's getting old.

 

With this book, I reached my goal of reading 150 books this year, with over 3 months to go! Yay, me!!
