I won this book, an uncorrected advance reading copy This was the best story I have read in this genre for many years Erec Stebbins had a phenomenal idea when he wrote this book He was sensational in creating the intricate web and bones of a fine book.At first I was put off by the street savvy Sheikh saying ain t than I felt was appropriate But, I was quickly won over by the action and there is a lot of action in this read Then, I believe I was run over a bit each and every time there was an at [...]
In difficult times where the world has a very serious threat from terrorists the author has tackled this issue and written an excellent novel When an unknown cell starts targeting Muslims the FBI have an urgent task to find out the perpetrators and bring them to justice The very strong message that I got from the storyline is no matter what your beliefs are, killing and revenge are not the answer, there is strength in forgiveness The novels title says it all, taken from Norse Mythology Ragnarok [...]
If you are fan of Tom Clancy or Robert Ludlum then this is a book you will really enjoy It kept me turning pages and I swallowed the novel whole in a few short days.I must confess some bias as the author is an old friend of mine from middle and high school As adults we have not interacted often, but we used to write together some back in the day I tried hard to hear his voice as I recall it in this book but I guess our childish writings of the past were a different cup of tea I also must disclos [...]
I don t read a lot of thrillers, but this one seems to check all the boxes ultra evil dude engineers an apocalypse, and two wounded hero types have to get over their differences to save the world Short chapters alternate between scenes of chaos and violence and sessions of problem solving and teamwork The main characters are given enough backstory to be interesting and show appealing human qualities It s a well constructed book of its type, with enough detail to be interesting without getting to [...]
I received this book for free from Giveaways An interesting and well paced story about an FBI special team tasked with discovering who is behind the bombings and assassinations of Muslims They discover a secret operation of highly trained former military members whose mission is World War III.
Wow This starts strong Lots going on but easy to follow I really enjoyed this one it s like a 4.5 than a simple 4 stars Some of the mysteries are not fully resolved how did the villains all get connected and so on and I personally regret it when highly principled good guys die it s fictionlet me keep my good guys I ll look for by this author and definitely look for 2.
Warning This review contains spoilers I picked this book off our home bookshelf I don t usually read thrillers so I am certainly not the target audience for this book but since it was written by a childhood friend of Ken s, I figured I d give it a shot.Mostly, reading this book felt just like watching an action movie Everything that transpired was easily envisioned on a big screen, and the book even included what I consider the superfluous yet obligatory romance between the male lead and a suppo [...]
I found The Ragnarok Conspiracy to be an instantly intense, gripping and compelling novel Right from the start the intensity is high and the pace fast.John Savas himself fuels the momentum as he is the most intense character I ve come across in a while With each chapter of Savas background and personality is revealed to the reader The elements that make up John Savas are revealed at a pace that is almost but not quite, as fast as the plot First impressions are that it is well written, there s g [...]

Erec Stebbins has created an intense story that touches at the very soul of intrigue with very human characters, full of flaws and the baggage of past nightmarish events that drive them to push through the bureaucratic sludge in an attempt to save the world from terrorist devastation In a race against time, sometimes crossing the lines of legalities, FBI agent John Savas, along with his newly formed anti terrorist team follow a winding trail littered with death and deceit, only to find that thes [...]
I like smart plotting than anything except chicken Parmesan, and while this book has all the ingredients of a smart, ballsy thriller, it comes off a bit undercooked Led by Agent John Savas, Intel 1 is a squad unit of backstage FBI charged with making sense of disasters by sifting through data and secret intel When the team uncovers a string of assassinations of Islamic radicals and terrorist attacks on Saudi embassies that are carried out by an army of ruthless commandos using coded messages, t [...]
I won this book through a giveaway To be honest, I have yet to find the time to sit down and enjoy this book from beginning to end, but it has been sitting on my shelf for quite some timeAnyway, I entered this giveaway without really knowing what to expect This is a trend of mine when it comes to giveaways Anyway, upon reading the excerpt, I found that this book could be and most likely is very engaging While there was an apparent rise in 9 11 related literature fictional and non fiction alike I [...]
FBI agent John Savas and his team investigate the world s most dangerous terrorist organization, not Muslim terrorists but American madmen bent on creating a world conflict between the West and the Muslim world To complicate the situation, the team s superiors are reluctant to consider the evidence, as slim as it is, frustrating the investigation This is a fast paced novel of suspense, intrigue, and action In my opinion, the characters are well developed, perhaps not perfectly defined, but belie [...]
Having read a number of Erec Stebbins novels and having enjoyed them all, I decided to read his debut novel to see how good he was when he first burst on the scene as a published author Overall, I was not disappointed but was not overwhelmed.The story started out with high potential for an outstanding novel of intrigue and a great thriller Halfway through I was thinking how great the book was and ready to rate 5 stars The I read I started to think that it was getting a bit wonky and far fetched [...]

I received the Ragnarok Conspiracy through a first reads giveaway.As a fan of books full of action I thoroughly enjoyed the Ragnarok Conspiracy Erec Stebbins has created an action packed thriller that was gripping right from the start which also contains some heartfelt moments The idea behind the novel is quite interesting as it uses the events of 9 11 to fuel the hatred of a new terrorist organization intent targeting Islam It s a fast paced adventure where you genuinely care about the characte [...]
The FBI and CIA are in a race to stop attacks in sites holy to Muslims in order to prevent a war pitting religion against religion, a war of the worst type I was blown away from the very beginning all the way to the very end So many plot twists, so much suspense It has been an incredibly long time since I ve picked up a book and felt like I never wanted to let it go The Ragnarok Conspiracy combines realistic situations, current events, terror, and fanaticism in this sure to please thriller.
If there is any justice at all this should be one of the best sellers of the fall Great plot, well written, and super characters I was lucky enough to get and ARC of this one, and I m so glad I did I probably would have passed it up in the bookstore, but I would have missed one helluva read I don t want to give anything away just want to say that you should read it if you like any type of thriller This is a real winner It should hit the stores in October.
I liked this book to an extent.The alternate take on what could have happened within our world had certain things occurred in different ways.The pace of the book seems to be just right, to the point where you don t really want to put it down because you are eager to find out what will happen next.The writing style wasn t my favourite, just a few pet peeves that kept distracting me from the story, but nothing major.I received the book for free through First Reads.
Won a copy from First Reads Giveaway Thank You to Erec Stebbins What a great read I thoroughly enjoyed this book A very intense pulse pounding story of terrorism, conspiracy, and a splash of romance If you love thrillers, action, and adventure definitely pick up a copy of this book You will not be disappointed Look forward to reading from this author.
Making allowances for this being a first novel, we have wooden prose delivering a reasonably interesting plot about international terrorism.opionator.wordpress 2012 0
Thank you First Reads and Erec Stebbins for this book I loved it, think Tom Clancy meets James Rollins meets Dan Brown Awesome plot of conspiracy high paced thrills and escaping death by the skin of your teeth Loved it Thanks
Hmmm, not sure this really works, a reverse 9 11 thriller where an American industrialists funds a terror network against Islamic targets around the world while thwarting all US intelligence efforts How plausible is this in reality Author just didn t quite pull this one off.
This book had nuanced characters, each with convincing motivations superb research with just enough detail and best of all, a thrilling conclusion.
Wow on to book two.
