Enemy of Mine (Pike Logan, #3)Enemy of Mine by Brad Taylor
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Brad Taylor whips up a doozy in this third in his Pike Logan series. Though this is another save the world adventure story, this one has many angles and characters involved in an overlapping narrative where everybody has all kinds of problems. Here’s the rare book of it’s kind where nothing goes smoothly. Making this an exciting thriller that deserves the adjectives more than most.

I marvel at the work Taylor had to do to have so much going on with so many and keeping it all straight enough to make a readable and entertaining book. The writing is very good and most of the settings are typically described for a thriller.

The weakest part are the characters, including the main one, Logan. Helpful are the names and nicknames. Though there’s a bit of confusion involving alternate names through parts of the book. Otherwise distinction is slim and descriptions slimmer. Most are illustrated involving their might and muscle. One key character is very well written and described. There’s a lot of emotional background included and not enough of the physical to make most of the characters whole.

Still, it’s a great book, story-wise.

Bottom Line: i recommend it. 7 out of 10 points.

October 30th, 2013 – Ready for Halloween!

by on Oct.30, 2013, under Various


Gathered the necessary breakfast tools for a Halloween morning. Of course, with that much cereal, it’s going to be a looooong morning!

My high school pal, Steve Brewster, tipped me off to find these at a Target store. A trip I made to scoop up a selection for this year. Best to get them now. Like ghostly apparitions, they appear now, will disappear and then, with all hopes, appear again next year.

I think it’s great that General Mills let’s these cereal icons return once a year to help tie so much of us from an earlier time to those younger folks of the present. It’s traditions that maintain this country and it’s values. Even when it’s a silly vampire cereal.
