Leap (Breakthrough #2) Reviews
Leap is the second installment in Michael C. Grumley's Breakthrough series, and it is just as action-packed and fun as book one, Breakthrough. There's nothing abstruse or complicated about these novels; rather they are straightforward and exciting, offering characters to love and situations to transport and engross. They are precisely the "summer read" type of escape I look for when I pick up an adventure scifi novel.
Scientists are involved with primate communication instead of dolphins in this second book of the Breakthrough series. Countries, like China and Russia, along with their scientists and military forces are active as antagonists in the story. The pivotal points of the plot are rich with thrilling adventure and death that leads to despair for the protagonists. From the middle of the narrative to the approach of the end, excitement and intrigue simmer until characters from the first book turn the ti ...more
Book two in the Breakthrough Series: Another fun, exciting read,
Like the first book, Breakthrough, the author starts out with separate storylines for the characters and you wonder how they relate. The journey to the point where the stories converge sets off on a fast, fun pace. Interesting premises for the separate storylines. Even though some of the characters are a bit formulaic, I liked them a lot. This is a great book to read while sitting on the patio enjoying the summer!
Leider weit schwächer als der erste Band. War mir viel zu langatmig und konnte mich nur stellenweise wirklich überzeugen. Das letzte Viertel macht aber dennoch neugierig auf den finalen Teil.
After enjoying the first book in the series, I decided to give this second book a read. I wasn't really that excited to start it, but found myself reading large chunks of it at a go. Even though there were multiple threads of the story weaving in and out, it was a very easy book to read and follow.
I like how they continued to build on the dolphin communication in multiple ways by advancing the terminology they were able to use, the dolphins leading them to their place of pilgrimage, and especial ...more
Michael C Grumley does it again.
This is the sequel to Breakthrough. To that end I don't want to give too much away in case you haven't read Breakthrough. All I can say is you seriously need to! These are thrillers at their very best.
In "Leap" we once again meet naval investigators John and Steve. This time they are investigating the sighting of a strange submarine off the coast of Brazil. And why is there a Chinese war ship in Guyana with the crew making strange visits to a remote mountain durin ...more
I had not read "Breakthrough" before reading "LEAP". There were a few references to the first book but those references did not interfere with my enjoyment of this book. The characters are well developed and consistent. This plays a major part in allowing the reader to stay involved with a plot line that takes one into a future we have not experienced yet plants the seeds of wonder that we could someday. The ending is satisfying as the characters chose to make choices for th ...more
This second book in the series was as interesting as the first book, and I really enjoyed the surprising twisty-turns. Am excited to continue with book #3, but will take a little break with a couple of diversion books first, so I don't get burnt out with the series.
There is scattered cursing in both books, including religious swears, no "F" bombs, however.
