Farrugia, Nathan M; Exclave (Helix VI); 2017

When we last left Sophia, unfriendlies came to visit. She deposited her empty glass beside Aviary’s phone on the coffee table. The phone flashed. Infrared cameras. Stingball grenades hit the floor. Everyone dropped their drinks and scattered. The grenades detonated, deafeningly loud, blasting the nearby windows into pieces. Everything around Sophia turned white. Enclave begins … Continue reading Farrugia, Nathan M; Exclave (Helix VI); 2017

Farrugia, Nathan M.; Inversion (Helix V)(2016)

Farrugia‘s Sophia and Olesya serials have forced me to reevaluate some of my preconceptions, stereotypes or prejudices. Thrillers are meant to keep us at the edge of our seat until some sort of climax occurs. Farrugia’s episodes have brought us threats to humanity, political entities and various teams. His “super-heroes” are Olesya and Sophia, and … Continue reading Farrugia, Nathan M.; Inversion (Helix V)(2016)

Farrugia, Nathan; Anomaly (Helix IV) (2016)

Sometimes getting to know the author is as fun as getting to know the characters. Farrugia is probably as adrenaline addicted as Sophia but, thankfully, seems a ways off Denton’s brand of crazy. He is also funny as hell and a great writer. This odd group of animals I belong to, seems hell-bent on destroying … Continue reading Farrugia, Nathan; Anomaly (Helix IV) (2016)

Farrugia, Nathan; Interceptor (Helix III) (2016)

Sievers turned his lapel out so Denton could see him reaching for a small, slender tin. He crouched and opened the tin on the floorboards, then stepped back. Inside, a large stainless steel and glass syringe. The liquid inside the syringe burned with the colors of molten lava. “You already know what this is,” Sievers … Continue reading Farrugia, Nathan; Interceptor (Helix III) (2016)

Farrugia, Nathan; Exile (Helix II) (2016)

Nathan. You cretin.  If telepathic strangling had been possible, I might have given it a try all the way from Norway. Cliff-hangers like this should be forbidden. History repeats itself over and over and over again. Using The Fifth Column as his title for the Sophia series, and inserting Sixth Column as rebels to the usurper group, shows … Continue reading Farrugia, Nathan; Exile (Helix II) (2016)

Farrugia, Nathan M.: Helix: Episode 1 (2016)

Hi, I’m Nathan and I make up stories. There’s a word for that. Delusional. And sexy. Helix: Episode 1 is part of the world of The Fifth Column. What I like most, aside from how well the text flows, is its realism. No mental leaps are required of me to believe in the likelihood of the … Continue reading Farrugia, Nathan M.: Helix: Episode 1 (2016)

Farrugia, Nathan M.: The Phoenix Variant (The Fifth Column III) (2014)

I like authors that make me curious about the background of their stories. The first thing about The Phonix Variant that set me off was Denton’s trip to Ekne, Norway. Shame on me for not knowing my own country’s history well enough. I had to look the place up. Now I kind of know where … Continue reading Farrugia, Nathan M.: The Phoenix Variant (The Fifth Column III) (2014)

Farrugia, Nathan M.: The Seraphim Sequence (The Fifth Column II)

The main question in The Seraphim Sequence seems to be “who is really on Sophia’s side” in her battle against the Fifth Column. She trusts five people. These are Jay, Damian, Nasira and Benito. Her hero is Freeman, the leader of the Akhana. Anyone else is questionable in her mind, although there are a couple … Continue reading Farrugia, Nathan M.: The Seraphim Sequence (The Fifth Column II)

Farrugia, Nathan: The Chimera Vector (The Fifth Column) (2012)

The Chimera Vector set me into research mode. I started looking into “chimera vector” and discovered quite a few articles on the research into this type of transportation on the net. I have included four of them below. Chimera: a DNA molecule with sequences derived from two or more different organisms, formed by laboratory manipulation. … Continue reading Farrugia, Nathan: The Chimera Vector (The Fifth Column) (2012)

Vincent, Steve P.: The Foundation (Jack Emery I) (2015)

When he was finished, he ejected the USB and all signs of the message board vanished from the screen. Chen left the internet café as anonymously as he’d entered, satisfied that everything was in place for the attack. He had no expectation that he’d bring down the Chinese Government, though he did believe that a … Continue reading Vincent, Steve P.: The Foundation (Jack Emery I) (2015)
