New World Order (Sunset Rising #3) by S.M. McEachern (Review)
The third installment of the Sunset Rising series, the post apocalyptic action story continues. New World Order starts right off the bat with the kidnapping of Jack, causing for an interesting intro into the story. The story continues to develop with a new plot, but the same characters. After the past two books, the characters are pretty well developed before the book even starts. I did have a problem with an element with they way the story was written. In the story, the author would built up tension with one character, then switch characters, leaving the readers disappointed and annoyed at the change. This occurred for a good portion of the novel, driving me crazy. Beyond that, in my opinion, the conclusion of the novel was too short. After an entire novel worth of build up, it all ended pretty quickly.
The positives would be the amazing depths of love and thought in the main characters, and the awesome action/conflicts that occurred in this novel. Both are very important in the way of telling a good story, and keeping the readers attention. I find both at least partially redeeming for the cut off storytelling I mentioned earlier. I give New World Order the rating of TWO AND A HALF OUT OF FIVE STARS!
