First of all, admission time I had never heard of Tim Tigner until out of the blue I received a message from Tim himself via after he d read an earlier review I had written Talk about going the extra mile for your readership He suggested that I download and read this free novella, because he thought I would like it Well, gift horses and all that, plus being a little flattered that the guy could be bothered to personally contact me, download it I did.I have to say I wasn t disappointed, the pace [...]
I ve had the privilege of reading some great fiction recently and Tim Tigner s Chasing Ivan is no exception I picked up a free copy from the author s website and having read all his other books, I was excited about his latest novella And oh boy, does he come through with yet another exciting story Better yet, not only is this a standalone story but it s a prequel to his upcoming Achilles series with the first story set to release in 2016.Now, if you ve never read any of his stories, where have y [...]
Chasing Ivan by Tim Tigner is a fast paced thriller that I could not put down The main character, Agent Adam Achilles Healy, is someone that you want on your side Achilles is creative and quick on his feet Achilles is paired up with a thief gone straight named Agent Jo Monfort who was trained by The Agency The two work as a team to hunt for Ivan the Ghost before an unsuspecting woman named Emily, who is under Ivan s spell, becomes his next victim I don t want to say any and ruin it for a potent [...]
Good, quick action tale with a pair of amazing agents being directed by a couple of idiot bosses Good pace and action set in the multi millionaire world of Monte Carlo The character development is brisk and superficial We don t really learn much about our superhero and what his motivations, fears, and goals are Perhaps later books in the series fill us in deeply I enjoyed it, but like a guilty pleasure , because it wasn t much than a comic book.
A powerfully addictive story by an exciting new author.A fast paced novella that holds your attention to the very last sentence.I look forward to following Achilles as the series continues.
This is the second Tim Tigner book I ve read and it didn t disappoint Chasing Ivan is a short 150p novella thriller that is set at a time before the Kyle Achilles series and provides some great background on the main character, Kyle.The plot is quite cool and hooked me in without any reluctance from my side A secretive bad guy for hire by the rich Ivan the Ghost has always baffled the authorities He never leaves clues, and no one even knows what he looks like Enter, Kyle Achilles, a CIA operativ [...]
This is a very action packed prequel to what promises to be a great series
This has been a week of firsts, this is my fourth book this week by an author previously unknown to meA operative Kyle Achilles is on the hunt for Ivan the ghost, a man who destroys peoples lives but these falls from grace can be explained away by bad luck and circumstance.Achilles is given a lead to run down by his boss the director of the CIA and we follow him as he tries to track Ivan.I liked the idea of this bronze winning Olympic Biathlete turned wreckless rock climber with no soldiering in [...]
Chasing Ivan is a real page turner with interesting, non stop action from the first page to the almost last And with all that action there is still plenty of character development The main characters feel like real people That s unusual in a short novel and it places Chasing Ivan a cut above the standard chase novella If I have one criticism it s this it is made clear that Ivan isn t a cold blooded killer He s of an extortionist for hire After he had committed his crimes, nobody but the person [...]
For the full effect of this review click here.This book was like a live action movie Take Mission Impossible as an example and comparison Agent Achilles is searching The Ghost, the most silent criminal the world has ever seen And a master at evading the authorities And while spying two politician s kids in hope one might be targeted there are those sitting on chairs barking orders at our agent to eliminate said ghost by any means necessary, even putting but in danger the romantically smitten dau [...]
There aren t many books out there that are so good they keep me up late at night cause I just can t bring myself to put it down Chasing Ivan was one of those few books Fast paced, full of action and detail that kept my attention from start to finish This is the fourth novel I ve read by Tim Tigner, while it is a work in progress, it was a page turner comparable to some of my favorite Vince Flynn books I ve read the beta version of Pushing Brilliance and now Chasing Ivan, I can tell Adam Achilles [...]
Fast paced, addictive and a damn good story I loved the narrative style which allowed Achilles to tell me what he was doing as he was doing it well as what he was thinking barbs and all I found myself exclaiming out loud Oh No, Now What , numerous times as I turned the pages to see what happened next Tim has a knack of describing the inevitable acts of violence that leave a spot on visual without the gruesome details and some are even kind of humorous I highly recommend this book to anyone that [...]
Another great book by Tim Easy to read, and hard to put down It s a good introduction to Kyle Achilles He s a tough guy with the skill set to match The book starts out with a very like able character in Emily, it s one of the things that pulled me in straight away There s also plenty of twists and turns, and I found myself reading faster to find out what happens Add this book to your list, it s worth reading.
Entertaining read Fast paced and good scene setting Personalities of the main characters are realistic and yet different enough to hold the interest of the reader I would recommend the story to those who enjoy reading adventure stories eEntertaining read Fast paced and good scene setting Personalities of the main characters are believable and quirky A book well suited to those who enjoy a well constructed and well written adventure.
I usually love a good action thriller or mystery type book While this book was had a lot of action in it, I just felt like something was missing I felt because the book was so short that the author attempted to cram a lot into a short story It also seemed that there wasn t a lot of character development and personality, again I think it can be attributed to the short length I can see the potential for the story being something , but overall it just seemed to miss the mark for me.
I loved this novella It started out fast and never stopped It held my interest and I liked the characters Achilles will remain interesting through multiple books and I really liked Jo She was an interesting addition I m new to this author and wonder why he isn t better known I highly recommend this for a quick read to introduce you to the author If you already know him you ll want to read this.
Longer than a short story but shorter than a full novel, Chasing Ivan wastes no time in building the suspense A girl plans a date with someone she met online Sure, things might turn out a little different than she hopes, but she never expected this Of course you need to read the book to find out what this is That s OK, you ll enjoy it.
This book serves a prequel to Pushing Brilliance, from a character introduction Fast paced read, lost of great action as they try to catch a long wanted ghost operative at a high falutin affair near Cannes on the Mediterranean As with Pushing Brilliance, Tigner does a great job leaving you wanting for at the end.
A exciting little novella The author doesn t waste page estate with unnecessary back stories and boring plot build ups We are, instead, thrown right in the middle of an exciting fox hunt and are treated to an exciting game of cat and mouse The ending seemed a little abrupt but overall, a thrilling little book.
I really enjoyed this novella introducing Achilles, a very likable CIA agent, chasing one of the world s most elusive criminals fast paced and action packed, this was a quick and fun read I look forward to the next entry in the Achilles series.
You will read this story in one sitting Impossible to put downA great read A hero in the making Achilles is resourceful, intelligent and a competitor He started behind, but soon caught up and out politiced his boss Worth reading
