Revue de presse

“Hawke is . . . strong, shrewd and savvy, with an aplomb not seen since James Bond. In other words, Bond, eat your heart out . . . there’s a new spy in town.” (NPR)

“Alex Hawke is the new James Bond. Ted Bell is the new Clive Cussler.” (James Patterson)

“A secret agent who takes you into the danger zone with a ballsy wit that had me hooked.” (Vince Flynn, bestselling author of The Last Man)

“Ted Bell puts a capital A in adventure.” (Madison County Herald)

“Bell knows how to build a plot that moves at breakneck speed.” (Richmond Times-Dispatch)

“China seeks to rule the world in bestseller Bell’s entertaining eighth novel featuring MI6 super-agent Alex Hawke . . . this is a thrilling ride.” (Publishers Weekly)

Présentation de l'éditeur

Dashing counterspy Alex Hawke must rescue a kidnapped American scientist as the United States and China move dangerously close to all-out nuclear war in this adrenaline-fueled thriller in the New York Times bestselling series that combines the hallmarks of Clive Cussler, Tom Clancy, Ian Fleming, and Daniel Silva.

When an elderly professor at Cambridge is murdered, a victim of bizarre, ancient Chinese torture, Alex Hawke teams up with his Scotland Yard colleague and friend Inspector Ambrose Congreve to find the killer. But the death is only the opening move in a tense and lethal game of geopolitical brinksmanship.

In the United States the president has begun behaving strangely. Is his mental health deteriorating—or is there something far more sinister behind his questionable moves? The answer is crucial, for tensions are mounting between China, North Korea, and the U.S. And China has launched fighter jets and a mega submarine vastly more sophisticated than any seen before—military technology that leapfrogs anything the U.S. and Great Britain possess.

With the situation edging toward an unthinkable abyss, Hawke must pull off his most daring mission yet: infiltrate the China and neutralize the source of their advantage . . . or risk witnessing World War III.

I enjoy these books as a harmless diversion. The stories aren't first class but they are fun. But oh my gosh it is like 10 different people wrote this book alternating chapters and had the plot in common but no editing. Phrases, character descriptions, background information is repeated over and over as if someone was afraid a reader might pick up the book mid-chapter and need some catching up, or go into a coma between chapters and need to start over. Hawke lives at Hawkesmoor, Congreve's best friend is Hawke, Hawke oozes charm, etc., etc., etc.,. Got it, check, got it, etc., etc., etc. 30 minutes with a decent editor would tighten this thing up nicely, but as it stands it is distracting how poorly this book was edited. Still enjoyed it though....shame on me.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A fun, fast read that hits all of the right emotional and intellectual highs 1 avril 2014
Par Bob Milne - Publié sur Amazon.com

I think the thing I enjoy most about Ted Bell's Alex Hawke novels is the sense of balance. It's there in the characters, the emotions, the plot threads, and the pacing. If you're like me, you come for the action and the adventure, but it's all the other elements that keep you reading each page closely, rather than just skimming head for the next 'big' moment.

With Warriors we get more of that deliberately careful balance. Family (both intimate and extended) plays a significant role this time out. It begins with a family dinner, a birthday present, and a roadside abduction of Bill Chase, his wife, and their two children. Captured by the Chinese, Bill is tortured and tormented, forced to put his military genius to work against the Western world for the sake of his family. It continues with the relationships between Alex and his son, as well as between father, son, and Nell, the governess from Scotland Yard. There are equal doses or sorrow and happiness there, mixed in with the difficult realities of protecting a child who presents a prime opportunity for striking at Alex himself. It even extends to the villains of the piece, General Sun-Yat Moon and his daughters (Jet, Li, and Chyna), all of whom have a complicated relationship with Alex. Theirs are relationships of love and hate, emotions powerful enough to push the world to the brink of nuclear war.

With so much raw humanity to the novel, it's quite a surprise to find the technological aspects just as strong. There's a highly advance fighter jet designed to deliver Alex to his Chinese contact, and a pair of equally advanced missiles designed to prevent him from making that meet. There's an entirely new class of submarine here, far more dangerous and more chilling than anything fans have read before. The first appearance of one off the shore of the continental USA is almost as chilling as the reconnaissance team's descent below the waterline. There are extremely sophisticated drone planes, unmanned but well-armed, with a graveside attack that rivals just about anything else within the genre. By contrast, the devices of torture are decidedly old school - ancient in a few cases - but no less effective.

Again, in terms of plotting, balance is everything. While Alex Hawke is highly reminiscent of a more human sort of James Bond, this is not a book that's all about him. In fact, his acts of heroism are probably just under half the novel. His old friend, Chief Inspector Ambrose Congreve, gets a great deal of time in the spotlight here, with a pair of criminal investigations and a vengeful pursuit of would-be assassins key turning points, and his son's governesses - the aforementioned Nell and her replacement, Sabrina - have key roles to play as well. Even the bit players have their scenes, with comradely banter and trash talk adding some color to the story as a whole.

Of course, this is an Alex Hawke story, so it must be said he's once again given the opportunity to shine. The stakes are higher here than they ever have been before, but he tackles it all with his customary wit, charm, and prowess. The climactic set-piece is more of a team effort, with old friends and new heading into danger alongside him, but that doesn't diminish his contributions. As you would expect, it is Alex who ultimately stands before the fate of the world, and he who fights hardest to preserve it.

A fun, fast read, Warriors proves once again that Ted Bell deserves to sit upon the same shelf as the likes of Clive Cussler, Vince Flynn, W.E.B. Griffin, and Ian Fleming. More tightly focused and to-the-point than many of his contemporaries, even with the balance involved, Bell knows how to tell a tale that hits all of the right emotional and intellectual highs.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Warriors-Worth the Wait! 5 avril 2014
Par EmilyY1976 - Publié sur Amazon.com

New York Times Bestselling Author, Ted Bell, delivers with the eighth novel in the Alex Hawke Series: Warriors. The characters we have come to know and love are thrust into a new conflict with an old adversary. Alex Hawke is back with his motley crew of friends to thwart the enemy’s plans. It’s a tough assignment that spans continents.
An American scientist, along with his family, is captured and thrown into a van off the streets of Georgetown in 2009. Present day, Kathleen Chase and her children are rumored to still be in a North Korean labor camp, while her husband, American Scientist and Nobel laureate, Dr. William Chase is being forced to cooperate with General Sun-Yat Moon of China. General Moon has devised a horrifying plan to use the American’s knowledge against his home country. The product is a fleet of Centurion Submarines more lethal than any sub fabricated before.
It just so happens that Alex Hawke has had a run in with one of General Moon’s daughters in the past. General Moon hasn’t forgotten and would like to exact revenge on his daughter’s behalf. Chyna Moon has the cold blooded nature of her father, and has unusual weapons of choice…ravens. Let’s just say she lets the birds do the dirty work for her. Alex’s longtime friend, Ambrose Congreve, is tasked with trying to trap The Raven at her own game.
Bell isn’t afraid to challenge our emotions in this novel. We lose some beloved characters in the fight this go around. I was pleased to see Bell show some vulnerability with the characters. He explores how they deal with love, loss, and the uncertain future.
Alex Hawke and his band of brothers come together once again to save the world from global anarchy. There are some bumps, bruises, and tears along the way…but boy is it worth the ride.

I've been reading the Alex Hawke series since Pirate and have enjoyed them, since they generally had decent (if essentially unbelievable) plots, mainly because the various characters were interesting. However, it looks like the author had a difficult time coming up with anything for this one that made any sense. The various story lines were confused and hard to follow. Frankly, Hawke might as well become some sort of demi-god, since he appears essentially invincible and unaging, despite being shot, tortured and beat up so many times in the series. At least Fleming had Bond showing some scars and depression after the things he went through.

I think Bell needs to retire Hawke. He phoned this one in.

This Alex Hawke thriller is so compelling you might want to start it on a weekend. It's exciting, funny & unputdownable. I hope Ted Bell outlives me cause I can't imagine a world without Alex Hawke adventures.
