Net Force: Dark Web by Jerome Preisler, Tom Clancy, and Steve Pieczenik – Spoiler Free Review

Publisher: Hanover Square Press

Publication Date: November 26, 2019

Genre: Adult Fiction

Adventure Rating: 3 Stars


The return of the cutting-edge thriller series Net Force, created by Tom Clancy and Steve Pieczenik and written by Jerome Preisler.

The number one threat to our nation’s security is in cyberspace. The new US president wants to tackle the urgent problem head-on and launches a top secret line of defense: Net Force. But before the organization can be announced, the country is hit by an unprecedented, two-pronged terror attack.

Not yet empowered by Congress nor embraced by a dubious intelligence community, still untested, unproven and officially unnamed, Net Force’s elite group of cyber experts and field operatives must lead the fight against the ongoing waves of hacks while tracking down the mastermind. Their failure could mean global catastrophe. Success may lead them to become the highest-level security agency in the United States.

A story that seems ripped from tomorrow’s headlines, Net Force: Dark Web relaunches one of the most prescient thriller series at a time when cybersecurity is more vital than ever. “

*Thank you to the publisher and Net Galley for the e-arc in exchange for an honest review*

This is not a book I would normally pick up, however the publisher reached out to me and I thought I would try something outside of my reading comfort zone. It wasn’t exactly my cup of tea so I am rating based on what I would rate it if this is the type of genre I normally read. If that makes sense.

Likes The writing was really well done and easy to follow. When the action picked up, it was non-stop. I also liked the plot. It was really scary how accurate it could be! A cyber threat is really scary especially with the fact that almost everything runs through the system now. I really liked reading about the HIVE and how Alex gave it an Audrey Hepburn voice. What HIVE could do, a very real seeming virtual reality, was awesome! I liked that the author and creator came up with a plot so vast and intelligent that it seemed so real.

Dislikes It was really slow until a little over 50% of the way through. Then it was really interesting. I also didn’t connect with any of the characters. I just didn’t feel for them.

Final Thoughts I did like this overall. It ended on a cliff hanger! I really want this to be a movie. I think I would like it even more!

What are some books that are out of your reading comfort zone?

I have loved reading ever since I can remember. As a child, I often heard the words, "Please put down your book for one second!" That still hasn't changed as an adult! I am always reading at least two books and I will always have one on me!
