Présentation de l'éditeur

BOOK 2 OF THE 187 SERIES Surviving a plane crash that claims the life of his mother, 10-year-old Axle Hunter suddenly finds himself in the jungles of Thailand, wanders into an opium poppy field and enters an exotic realm far beyond the familiar-the world of the drug cartel. Rescued and adopted by Chang So’Ming, commander of the poppy farm, Axle works the fields and trains to become a Thai fighter in the ancient tradition. Axle comes to embrace the jungle and its people as family, and confronts the savagery of revenge when called upon to fight for his father’s life. Years later, Axle becomes a world champion Thai fighter, husband to the beautiful nurse May and father of his own son. But rival forces seeking to control the So’Ming poppy empire thrust Axle into a quest for revenge when they murder his family and burn down his father’s compound. Axle enlists the help of one man he knows he can trust: Kane Silver. --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .

5.0 étoiles sur 5 188 means 187 + Axle... 6 septembre 2010
Par Jason Frost - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This book was given to me by the author, there, now that that stupid disclaimer is out the way... they say that the sophomore book is harder to write than the first one, especially if (as in this case) the first one was very good. Apparently Mr. Halverson didn't get that memo. I'm glad he stuck with the formula that made his first book so good, so brutal, so sudden, while showing us the power of friendship and loyalty. While this story is billed as a `Kane Silver' novel, the bad muther in this book is Axle.

Axle is on a plane with his mother that crashes into the jungles of Thailand. To survive a place crash is one thing, but to do it on the outskirts in the middle of nowhere AND at ten years old... takes someone special. Or wild. From then on Axle's life is one long barbaric game of survival. Through violence he is introduced to the jungle. He is parented by violence and violence permeates his skin like drunken jungle mosquitoes. To quell this force Alex becomes a world-class fighter and dedicates his life to training. He does well for himself and even finds himself some local tail. But when you breathe, live, smell, taste, and caress violence, it only makes sense that it will find its way back to you. Violence finds its way back to Axle and the path it blazes is white frikkin' hot. But not nearly as hot as the path Axle blazes back as he tracks down those responsible. One by bloody, agonizing, murdering one.

Like his first book, Wade write this one like... like... if he doesn't get it out fast enough, something else will. I've come to realize that this extremely fast writing style is just how Wade is. There were a few times where it was a little too fast and I wanted more background dammit! But that's his M.O. so I just dealt. That's always a good/bad thing with authors like this. What they write is so good that you go through it like Kim Kardashian does bikini wax, but then you have to wait until they drink themselves into another book. (Stephen King reference, not Mr. Halverson).

Mr. Halverson delivers again with a story chock full of rage, ferocity, revenge, and vengeance.

Axle Hunter was just ten years old when he lost his mother in a plant crash. Axle's mother had won a trip. Together she and Axle was flying when their plane crashed in the middle of the ocean in Thailand. Axle was the only survivor. Axle travels many miles and comes upon an encampment. There he is met by Choy and Ling. Two of Chang So'Ming's employees. Chang runs an opium farm.

When Change meets Axle he feels sorry for him and adopts him as his son. Axle has grown up into a man and great fighter. Axle's hero is Rocky Balboa. Axle has a beautiful wife, May and son. Things are going well for Axle until a tragedy strikes and turns Axle's world upside down. Axle calls on the help of Kane Silver. There is going to be some major butt kicking happening!

187 Pain and Bliss is the second Kane Silver novel from author, Wade J. Halverson. I have to tell you that I was instantly hooked from the first moment I started reading this book. This took me a bit by surprise, though it shouldn't have surprised me as I read Life After 187 and really liked it. Mr. Halverson is a very prolific writer. He knows just how to bring life to the characters and the story. There is plenty of action to be found within the pages of this book. I could see a lot of Rocky in Axle. Both Rocky and Axle had the heart of champions. It was nice to see Kane and all the other guys from the prior book.

I don't usually read the excerpts of authors next books, which are usually found at the back of the book but I couldn't resist trying the excerpt for the next book and I have to tell you it is going to be good. I can't wait to get my hands on a copy. My last words to the reader is...you will be in Pain if you don't check out the Kane Silver novels as you don't know what you are missing but on the other hand if you do pick up a copy then you will be in Bliss over how great 187 Pain and Bliss is!

I read and enjoyed the first book in this series, so when Wade contacted me to see if I'd be willing to review this one, I jumped on it.

There is something very easy going about Wade's writing that keeps me reading. With his books I can just pick it up and delve into the story being told. No worries, no heavy thinking, just relaxing reading.

This is a solid second book. The story was entertaining and engaging. I liked Axle and his story. I found myself hoping for the best for him. Kane and his guys were fun as always. Valentino has to be one of my favorites. He just cracks me up.

I have to say the fighting a big draw for me. Being a fan of MMA, I found the fight training and fights to be very enjoyable. I would've been even happier to see more fights in the book.

I look forward to reading the next in the Kane series.

This is the second book from Wade J. Halverson that I have read. He's a very good writer, and this series of books is loaded with thrills, suspense and mystery. As Axle is devastated by the brutal deaths of his family, he is looking for some help. He heads to the one man that he can trust, Kane Silver. Kane has a business called Securities & Such. Along with Kane there is Valentinao and Si'Ling. Hank is the one that oversees them all, kind of like a dad. Kane, Valentinao, Si'Ling and Axle start their packing to head to China. Their job is to track down the people who killed Axle's family. Does Axle get his revenge for his families deaths? You'll have to read the book to find out.

Wade J. Halverson shoots the moon in this second novel of the 187 series. Justice, self-revelation, coming of age, Pain & Bliss introduces new protagonist Axle Hunter So'Ming and still includes beloved hero Kane Silver in the lush Thai setting.

Halverson is a gifted storyteller, whose action/thriller plotting is evidently limitless and whose characters are passionate and engaging. This book's universal themes coupled with exotic settings, adventure and intrigue make it a spirited romp for all readers.
