Descriptions du produit




Like a relentless boxer, rain beat down on the city, first
jabbing with sharp needles, then smacking Seattle with huge
fat drops that hit like haymakers, the barrage punctuated by
the ominous rumble of thunder and the eerie flash of lightning.

An unmarked black car drew to a stop in a rat-infested
Sector Three alley, the rain rattling the metal roof like
machine-gun fire. Two men in dark suits climbed out, to be
instantly drenched, though neither seemed to notice. Each
wore a radio earplug with a short microphone bent toward
his mouth.

Sage Thompson--the man who'd emerged from the passenger's
side--was relieved that the headsets, at least,
seemed to be waterproof. In their coat pockets, each man
carried one of the new portable thermal imagers that, just
this week, had become standard equipment. Thompson--
barely six feet, almost skinny at 180 pounds--wondered if
water-tightness was among the gizmo's various high-tech
bells and whistles.

Water sluiced down the alley in a torrent that seemed to
express the sky's anger, eventually bubbling over the edge of
a rusty grate maybe ten yards in front of them. Thompson
was forced to jump the stream and his feet nearly slid out
from under him as he landed and bumped into a triangle of
garbage cans, sending them crashing into each other, creating
a din that rivaled the storm's, his hands flying wide to
help maintain his balance. Then his hands dropped back to
his sides, the one holding his flashlight clanging off the imager
in his coat pocket, the other moving to make sure his
pistol was still secure in its holster on his belt.

The hefty man who'd been driving--Cal Hankins--shone
his flashlight in Thompson's face, huffed once, and eased
around a dumpster that looked like it hadn't been emptied
since before the Pulse. Moving slowly ahead, their flashlights
sweeping back and forth over the brick hulk in front
of them, the two men finally halted in front of what had once
been a mullioned window.

The interior of the six-story brick building--an abandoned
warehouse, Thompson surmised--seemed a black
hole waiting to devour them without so much as a belch.
Next to Thompson, his partner Hankins swept a flashlight
through one of the broken panes, painting the rainy night
with slow, even strokes. Darkness surrendered only brief
glimpses of the huge first-floor room as it swallowed up the

"You sure this is the right place?" Hankins asked gruffly.

There was no fear in the man's voice--Thompson sensed
only that his partner didn't want his time wasted. At forty,
bucket-headed Hankins--the senior partner of the duo--
wore his blondish hair in a short brush cut that revealed only
a wisp or two of gray. His head rested squarely on his shoulders,
without apparent benefit of a neck, and he stood nearly
six-three, weighing in (Thompson estimated) at over 230.
But the man wasn't merely fat--there was enough gristle
and muscle and bone in there to make Hankins formidable.

Still, Thompson knew their boss--that nasty company
man, Ames White, a conscienceless yuppie prick if there
ever was one--had been all over Hankins about his weight
and rode the older guy mercilessly about it. Though he knew
better than to ever say it out loud, Thompson considered
White the worst boss in his experience--which was saying

White was smart, no doubting that, but he had a sarcastic
tongue and a whiplash temper that Thompson had witnessed
enough times to know he should keep his mouth shut and his
head low.

"This is the right place, all right," Thompson said, raising
his voice over the battering rain. "Dispatch said the thermal
imager team picked up a transgenic in the market in
Sector Four."

"This is Sector Three."

"Yeah--they followed him here before they lost him."

Hankins shook his head in disgust. "Then why the fuck
ain't they lookin' for him, then? What makes us the clean-up
crew for their sorry asses?"

These questions were rhetorical, Thompson knew, though
they did have answers, the same answer in fact: Ames White.

And Hankins spent much of his time bitching about
White, behind the boss's back, of course. But they both
knew it was only a matter of time before White found a way
to get rid of Hankins ...

. . . and then Thompson would have to break in a new
partner, possibly one even younger than himself. Then he
would be the old-timer. The thought made him cringe.

Not exactly a kid at twenty-seven, Thompson was the antithesis
of Hankins: the younger man seemed like a long-neck
bottle standing next to the pop-top beer can that was
his partner. Married to his college sweetheart, Melanie, and
with a new baby daughter, Thompson was the antithesis of
Hankins in terms of home life, as well: the gristled bulldog
had been divorced twice and had three or four kids he never
saw and didn't really seem to give a damn about.

Je suis fan de la série TV Dark Angel, c'est un fait, d'où ma déception. On ne retrouve pas du tout les personnages et la lecture est franchement ennuyeuse. Espoir mal placé.

Almost good 25 octobre 2003
Par Kevin Williams - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
Good - It wraps up some loose ends from the show
Bad - Spends to much time rehashing a lot of the previous happenings wrong, In fact one of the main premises of this book did not happen according to the show. Therefore this book is on shaky ground. Descriptions of most characters sickeningly sweet. No new ideas are introduced. The new character introduced has attributes of another character from a previous episode. Everyone does not have to fall in love with Max. Do they?
I would recommend this to anyone who is dying to know what happened after the end of the show, but I would not be captivated by this if I was not a fan already. The writing seems amateurish.

Left a bad taste in my mouth... 14 janvier 2004
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
I am a huge fan of Dark Angel and was terribly disappointed at its cacellation. I looked to this book to answer my questions. It didn't, plus the writer was severly sloppy. There was no mention of the tattoos, and none of Sandeman... it was all left hanging so you have to buy another book! Not only Max Allan Collins started it out fine and was actually on a roll, but he ended it just horribly. Facts didn't add up and its like he just threw together a quick ending because his deadline was running out. Alas...the Dark Angel fans are left looking in other directions for answers!

If you can�t trust your friends, who�s left but your enemies 21 janvier 2004
Par Peter Vinton, Jr. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
Miss the series? Collins hits a homer again (his first being the excellent prequel "Before the Dawn"), this time picking up right where the series finale leaves off. The transgenic population of Terminal City has defiantly raised its "Freak Nation" flag but finds itself under siege by an increasingly trigger-happy cordon of police and National Guard. Ames White (still seething over his failure at the Jam Pony hostage incident) has pulled Detective Clemente from negotiation duty, and has upped the stakes by waging a P.R. war designed to blame a series a grisly murders on the transgenics.
Max settles, uncomfortably but competently, into the leadership role that has been thrust upon her; though her allies are never far behind, public fear and distrust are threatening to spiral completely out of control. Prominent characters include Logan, Joshua, Original Cindy, Sketchy, Mole, Detective Clemente, and of course Alec (though it's more than halfway through the book before he actually does anything). Ames White isn't much more developed as a character -he's reduced mainly to being nasty and surly to everyone in sight, although his credibility as an NSA agent is rapidly eroding. A new and particularly interesting character is Otto Gottleib, who starts out as a plodding, unimaginative federal agent but has a significant change of heart and becomes (in his own way) quite the hero. The other protagonist, "Kelpy," is a transgenic with a unique backstory and some wonderfully tragic motivation. Well-written, fast-paced, plenty of time for humor and a deepening of Max and Logan's relationship. No, the "targeted virus" plotline is not resolved, nor are Max's mysterious new tattoos or the "finding Sandemann" subplot given any new exposition. And no, no sign of Lydecker either. Nevertheless the story is tight, dramatic, and is exactly what Dark Angel's legions of disappointed fans have been salivating for. Bring on the next one, Mr. Collins!

The Series Continues Here 19 juin 2005
Par Michael Oberhardt - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
As a Dark Angel fan, I'm rating "Skin Game" and "After the Dawn", at the least from the perspective that both books tie up the loose ends of the series, giving a good sense of finality that "Freak Nation" didn't.

Skin Game ties up the Terminal City/anti-transgenic issue. After the Dawn ties up the breeding cult, Ames White, the Coming, and the question of what Max was designed to be. A fan should not pass up getting these issues resolved.

On the negative side, the author is incorrect on a few minor points, but I simply overlooked them and enjoyed the story. Firstly, at the conclusion of "Freak Nation", it had been established that Logan had the use of his legs (after the transfusion from Joshua) and was using the exoskeleton for a fighting edge (as shown well during the siege at Jam Pony). The books both indicated that he was still paralysed. Secondly, that they all hated Lydecker. When Lydecker disappeared mid-season-2, they were all on good-working-together terms. But as I said, I didn't hold this against the books. I just felt like doing some creative editing on the book...

Glorified fan fiction 31 août 2004
Par Sorrow - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
While I loved Max Allen Collin's characterisation of Alec and Joshua, I was disappointed in his overall writing style. It's clear he can't write fighting scenes (a couple of punches and the fight is over, there's not enough detail for the reader to 'see'), and certain plotlines were too difficult to swallow. He spent too much time describing the events of Freak Nation which I had an urge to skip (why waste so much of his word count recapping in detail what we've already seen, when he could be expanding more upon the post-Freak Nation story?).

At times it's obvious he's writing for a generation too young for him to really understand, and of characters he really can't get the feel for (asides from Alec and Joshua who I think he nailed perfectly). When Max ponders over her love for Logan his description is stiff and old fashioned feeling - cheesy Mills & Boon even!

Basically, this story left me feeling that nothing had really been accomplished. As someone else has already said, they should've commissioned a younger writer to tackle this novel! In all honestly, I've read much better Dark Angel fan fiction.
