En savoir plus sur l'auteur

I'm a US author in English only, sorry all my Francophone friends, desole. Mon Francais est tres moyen. But I do love all of Europe, as I was fortunate enough to live at various times in Belgium, Germany, and Turkey.

I'm a former Army Airborne soldier and I was also in the Air Force in and out of the black world. I'm a "combat lite" veteran - I deployed to several combat zones but never pulled a trigger in anger - had a few close encounters with mortars and IEDs, but I view that as fortunate background knowledge, not street cred.

God bless all you guys and gals that have put your bodies on the front lines, total respect to all of you, especially you combat wounded. You will find my books often have veterans as important characters, and I hope I do everyone justice.

As for the rest, I live on the East Coast right now but hope to move back West where I belong. I'm married, three kids and three dogs. Look me up on davidvandyke.org (under construction but the email function does work) or send one direct to me at dave(at)davidvandyke.org

3.0 étoiles sur 5 I am almost done with the 3rd book- my opinion so far 7 juin 2013
Par Crab McNasty - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
There are things I love and things I hate about this series but I guess the good outweighs the bad because I just bought book 4. Many former soldiers have the knowledge to write an interesting military story but their prose tends to be awkward and organized poorly. Mr. Vandyke is an exception to this rule. In fact, I believe he could make excellent use of his talents by ghost writing soldier's memoirs! His characters are interesting and I like a lot of the concepts he introduces. In my opinion, this author's strengths are in his ability to tell the details of the story. Unfortunately, this series has some pretty awful continuity problems on the grand scale and it is riddled with religious nonsense.

Book 1 is about a small group of former spec ops soldiers who put their training to good use and leave a trail of destruction in their wake. Book 2 really shifts gears to get more into the global politics in a rapidly changing world. I didn't mind the change in tone but I resented the stunning amount of deus ex machina he uses to get there. Here are some examples (minor spoilers!) of silly things that spring to mind: Plague carriers require massive amounts of food until lots of people are infected ("ummm, we fixed that"), the main character basically becomes the most powerful leader in the world, the former explosives expert is suddenly a nanotech expert, people continue to be religious after it is revealed that an alien created the god myth to influence humanity (well, middle eastern humans anyway). These and many other problems interfere with my enjoyment but the skillful prose with an authentic military perspective has kept me reading these books.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Fast pacing and interesting theory 3 septembre 2012
Par Sharon - Publié sur Amazon.com

I expected this action/adventure to be military/black ops action, which it presents very believably. I also anticipated a bit of an 'apocalypse' twist, which it is, in a way, though in more end of the world as we know it rather than end of the world.

Well developed characters, a new scientific discovery vaguely along the lines of Jurassic Park and others of that type, with nanobot technology, carried along by excellent presentation of the usual black ops/military type action. Good character development which included the changes in mindsets triggered by exposure to the Plague.

A definite twist at the end which leaves me wondering just where the author tends to go with the plotline, which could develop in an interesting way.

Par Jack Burton - Publié sur Amazon.com

I dare you to strap yourself into this rocket sled and take a ride. Absolutely WALL-TO-WALL action! As the author accurately states, this is a science fiction, military, techno-thriller. And that's exactly what it is - AND MORE! Pound for pound, this story is as good as it gets in its genre. The combat scenes, the weaponry detail, the Special Forces camaraderie and warrior insight... it's an excellently told and authentically compelling story. David Van Dyke does this kind of story as well as anybody out there (I am jealous). His science fiction concepts are fresh and neatly interwoven into a patchwork of real human drama. There is a romantic slant to the tale, as well, that adds interest. The plot, the characters, and the non-stop action are just superb. I love this book and recommend it highly. Guaranteed to make you forget your cares for a while.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 good start for an ebook author 1 octobre 2013

first and foremost I'm old. I remember the pulp books...these ebooks are the same. sometimes they allow an author room to grow and mature before hitting the main stream (kinda like the minors). That being said the review

the premise of the book is good; a unique twist on the good zombie (for lack of a better term)/military genre. But, the principle people in the story are still flat. Mr. Vandyke needs an editor (like the majority of the ebook authors) to help punch the book up in certain places, tone down excessiveness, and point out basic writing style flaws.
Example: the first scene is great, a new approach to the "suit" recruits ex military. then everything becomes too easy, of course he falls for the girl, of course he builds a crack-shot dirty dozen in a couple of weeks, etc.
To put it another way the author falls into the classic "show me don't tell me" beginning author trap. Mr. Vandyke shows promise but he needs to work on showing grit, details beyond weapons, and better character conflicts (internal or external)

5.0 étoiles sur 5 "That others may live." 12 mai 2013
Par Cheryl Stout - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
It's easy (or at least easier) to make decisions in your everyday life when you and your loved ones are healthy in body and mind but what if you weren't? What if you had cancer or muscular dystrophy or had been in a car wreck or suffered PTSD?

Elise Wallis is a research scientist with incurable cancer when she is introduced to the Eden Plague.

Daniel Markis was an Air Force Pararescueman before injuries and PTSD sidelined him. Now he's been infected with the Eden Plague, curing him of all his ills but leaving one "small" change. Was it worth it? And a big question - where did this virus originate from?

Beyond fast-paced with believable characters, the author drew me into his vision of this small group of Americans who have to make earth-changing decisions based on the Eden Plague virus. This is TEOTWAWKI plus military thriller plus sci fi.

Some twists and turns along the way with a little (awkward) romance thrown in, I've already purchased the next book in the series The Demon Plagues: Book 2 (Plague Wars) and am looking forward to diving onto it right away.

NOTE: I was provided a copy of this book for review purposes and I have given an honest review.
