My rating: 5/5
“Mercury Rapids: The Thoth Imperative” continues the mayhem that has become Bill Lewis’ life. Desperate to eradicate all evidence of their ‘great mistake’, the Greys have employed a sinister new race with a single goal in mind–destroy all life on Earth.
Can the combined forces of the Orion Committee and Majestic Twelve face this new and deadly challenge? Will Bill Lewis save the world…again?
“Mercury Rapids: The Thoth Imperative” gives us more of the high-octane action and wry humor that made “Mercury Rapids” such a joy to read.
The Thoth Imperative, the second book in the Mercury Rapids trilogy, is an excellent follow-up. It’s an action packed, exciting ride full of double-dealing aliens, conniving characters, twists and turns, and the humour I’ve come to love from the protagonist, Bill Lewis. A great read that I highly recommend.
There are a few typos here and there, but this doesn’t detract from the story at all. I’ve come across this with e-books before and with the quality of Steven Johnson’s writing, it’s something I’m happy to overlook.
