I have loved The Oregon Files series
Reviewed in the United States on November 7, 2016
I have loved The Oregon Files series, so I was predisposed to love this book, too. While it was good, I didn't love it as much as the others. This book was filled with action and things blowing up and getting shot, accompanied by a well-described cafeteria of weaponry. For some, I guess that would be a "plus." I felt that the action and weaponry took over the available space on the page. Unlike previous books, there was minimal character development, not even getting well acquainted with most characters. I missed, too, the descriptions of life on the Oregon itself. The Piranha was worth reading, but, to me, it slipped into the stereotypical car/boat chase to blow up the bad guys to the detriment of getting to know the characters well and seeing them grow and change.
