#BookReview: Grunt Hero (Task Force Ombra #3) by Weston Ochse

 
It is a time for heroes, for killers, for Grunts.

In this thrilling conclusion to the breakout military SF series, we find Earth plagued with millions of miles of terraformed cities, black vines crushing concrete, revealing iron and steel. Those unable to escape the vines are empty vessels waiting to be filled, living storage for alien algorythmic thought. What else can happen? What more can be done? This has always been a time for for heroes, for Killers, for Grunts, but are they enough?

Benjamin Carter Mason will be asked to return to OMBRA to help them find these answers, and what he finds will send him over the edge. In the end, his efforts won't be about survival, they'll be about revenge, and his revenge will be served in a blaze.





Weston Ochse is the author of ten novels, most recently SEAL Team 666, which the New York Post called 'required reading', and the military SF hit Grunt Life. His first novel, Scarecrow Gods, won the Bram Stoker Award for Superior Achievement in First Novel and his short fiction has been nominated for the Pushcart Prize. His work as appeared in comic books, and magazines such as Cemetery Dance and Soldier of Fortune.
His work has been lauded by Joe R. Lansdale, Peter Straub, Kevin J. Anderson, John Skipp, Brian Keene, Jonathan Maberry, and many more, including the New York Times, New York Post, Washington Post, Denver Post, The Financial Times of London, and The Examiner (UK).
His last name is pronounced "oaks." Together with his first name, it sounds like a stately trailer park. He lives in the Arizona desert within rock throwing distance of Mexico. For fun he races tarantula wasps and watches the black helicopters dance along the horizon.




This book was so good!  Action, exciting moments, I just couldn't put it down.  I was really getting scared as the end approached. so many things were happening I though it was going to end on one massive cliffhanger.  But the author did a wonderful job rounding it up and giving us and ending.  This one is full of plot twist you won't see coming and it was one awesome book.  

I hope to see another book in this series as I want any and all loose threads to be tied up for me. 

The characters were great they were not at the front of this book it was mostly the story that kept me reading. But they did give a great performance.
