A Cobra's Charm by Meghan Maslow
A Cobra's Charm - Meghan Maslow

 

 

Sex scene took a huge chunk of this story. Tho I loved the whole thing well enough for four stars, I think it needs more pages. More on MCs, more on prominent secondary characters, more on universe in general before any sex happens. Not enough sex for erotica, not enough plot for a good romance.

The Cobra Effect
The Cobra Effect - Christy Esmahan The Cobra Effect - Christy Esmahan This review appeared first on Sci-Fi & Scary.

I loved The Laptev Virus , the first book from Christy Esmahan. It wasn’t what one might call a traditional ‘medical/biohazard thriller’ as there was a distinct lack of pulse-pounding action and tension. However, it was a fascinating look at a ‘real’ reaction to an outbreak. It Even though most of it took place in a lab, I was completely fascinated and recommended the book to everyone around me.

The Cobra Effect had all the earmarks of another fantastic read from Esmahan. A lot of in-lab action, the recognition of danger right from the beginning, and a character that you wanted to be able to root for. Unfortunately, this book didn’t gel as easily or as quickly as The Laptev Virus did. One of the main problems is that the author spends a lot of time educating her audience using characters in the book as reader stand-ins. As fascinating as the information relayed is, the repeated interjections can take away from the simple pleasure of reading a thriller.

From bacteriophages to the truth about genetically modified organisms (GMOs), Esmahan uses The Cobra Effect as an opportunity to try to get across her point on the dangers of politics and one-track minds dabbling in science. Not only that but also how unintended consequences of attempted fixes can screw things up worse than before. The title of the book, The Cobra Effect, actually clues the reader into.

The cobra effect occurs when an attempted solution to a problem makes the problem worse. as a type of unintended consequence. – Wikipedia

The first fifty percent of The Cobra Effect is pure set-up and education. It’s dryly written and it’s easy for your attention to wander. However, just past the midway point, all the pieces finally start to click together and the action starts to actually happen. From there, the rest of the book flies by as you’re eager to see how everything is going to resolve. And she does manage to resolve everything neatly. Christy Esmahan strongly believes in the basic goodness inherent in science/ scientists, and this radiates through in her work.

Overall, The Cobra Effect is a decent read. Like with The Laptev Virus, The Cobra Effect will appeal to a very specific group of people. If lots of technical data and science don’t appeal to you, it’s best you don’t pick up the book. However, if you love to learn, definitely give it a shot!

Cobra 405
Cobra 405 - Damien Lewis In the '70s, a group of SAS troops steal a haul of gold from a bank in Beirut.
Switch to the present day, and the people they stole it from want it back.
Lots of action and a good camaraderie between the characters as they reunite in one final mission.
Quite a few twists and turns along the way keep you guessing how it will turn out.
