The BookViral Review:

A superbly well-written novel HAWK: Hellfire proves a relentless no excuses military science fiction thriller that combines all the required ingredients of the subgenre. Quick to gather momentum Waller’s plot is intelligent and suspenseful without the burden of unnecessary complexity whilst seamlessly integrated futuristic weaponry adds a sense of authenticity.

Far too many Military Science Fiction novels are long in the telling, with overly complicated plots and in this respect, Waller has pitched HAWK: Hellfire just right. Creating a vivid sense of time and place that wholly transports us to Scenna, a world that feels alive and lived in whilst managing to engage our imagination to the fullest. Characters are well nuanced and multi-layered whilst battle scenes are succinctly crafted without being repetitious.

As is most often the case with Science Fiction novels, it’s the journey that matters more than the destination and it’s certainly true of Waller’s novel. Yes, the familiar genre tropes are evident but he never allows them to spiral into unearned sentiment though his masterstroke is the character of Hawk himself as he struggles with the implications and consequences of his past and present actions.

Original and compelling science fiction from Waller HAWK: Hellfire is highly recommended!
