Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

A fast-paced, brilliantly written novel. The hottest thriller of the New Year! In The King of Plagues, Jonathan Maberry reigns supreme. Brad Thor, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Athena Project on The King of Plagues
Maberry delivers plenty of action and intrigue. Publishers Weekly on Assassin's Code
“The Ledger novels are exciting sf thrillers that just happen to involve stuff that's a little out there (and Joe himself is a realistically portrayed soldier who, from time to time, has a hard time dealing with the weirdnesses that surround him). Readers familiar with the series will need no prodding to check this new one out, and newcomers, immediately upon finishing the book, will want to hunt down the earlier installments. Booklist, starred review
“Get ready to have your mind boggled…The Ledger novels are exciting SF thrillers that just happen to involve stuff that’s a little out there. Readers familiar with the series will need no prodding to check this new one out, and newcomers, immediately upon finishing the book, will want to hunt down the earlier installments.” Booklist (starred review)
“This fast-paced and somewhat tongue-in-cheek thriller sees the cop–turned–government agent facing off against conspiracy theorists, men in black, and futuristic weapons, with the fate of the world at stake…Maberry digs deep into the body of lore concerning UFO conspiracy theories, fusing it with the anything-goes sensibilities of a series that’s previously pitted Joe against vampires and zombies. While there’s a kitchen-sink feel to the story’s various components, it somehow holds together in the end.” Publishers Weekly

Joe Ledger gets it done

I have been hooked on the Joe Ledge series ever since I first listened to Patient Zero. Ray Porter has always been such a perfect voice for Jonathan Maberry's writing. When the world is ending the DMS and Joe Ledger are there to save it (yes, I know, cliché). How many ways can the world end? I am hoping there are many more and I will look forward to Joe to be right there saving it all over again.
