[REVIEW] Silent Creed – Alex Kava

Alex Kava
Silent Creed (Ryder Creed, Book 2)
Penguin G.P. Putnam’s Sons (US & CA: 28th July 2015); Hachette Little, Brown Sphere (UK & AU: 28th July 2015)
Buy (US Kindle Edition) Buy (US Hardcover) Buy (US Paperback) Buy (UK Kindle Edition) Buy (UK Hardcover) Buy (UK Paperback) Buy (CA Kindle Edition) Buy (CA Hardcover) Buy (CA Paperback) Buy (Worldwide Hardcover) Buy (Worldwide Paperback)

While I’d recommend all of Alex Kava’s books, if you lack time to read her entire backlist, the Ryder Creed series is the most recent. Only two books so far have been published, with a third set for early 2016.

We first met Ryder Creed in Stranded, the “last” book in the Maggie O’Dell series. But Maggie’s still alive and kicking so fear not. Silent Creed references Exposed, but while it may be beneficial to catch up on Maggie’s books, you should still be able to keep up with the Creed ones without the backlist.

Ah, the military – they can be shady as hell, even to their own. While Senator Ellie Delanor is fighting to get medical benefits for veterans exposed to pathogens, Creed and Maggie are trying to recover bodies and a medical research facility from the debris of a landslide.

As for the dogs, Grace is again the star, but with a good showing from Bolo, too. Young veteran Jason Seaver was a worry early on in the book, but a new dog friend could be his reason to live.

Fans of thrillers and dogs alike will find Alex Kava’s combination a winner. The story trots along, and never outstays its welcome. Another great read in this author’s arsenal.

5 New Deals (Kava, Langager, Na, Campbell Powell, Sirowy)

Alex Kava‘s next four thrillers. Two books featuring recurring character Special Agent Maggie O’Dell, and two books featuring a new character, ex-Marine Ryder Creed, and his K9 Search and Rescue dogs.

Marie Langager‘s Haven to Bloomsbury Spark, as part of their launch. A seventeen-year-old girl’s dying ship has landed on an unexpectedly inhabited planet. She is marked by the Locals as a specimen for their grueling and dangerous tests, and is the only one who can determine whether they’re out to understand or destroy their uninvited guests.

An Na‘s The Middle Place to Atheneum (2015, North American rights). An existential exploration of the link between genetics and madness.

William Campbell Powell‘s Expiration Day, for publiction in April 2014. In a not-so-distant future, the decline of human fertility has resulted in android children who, on their eighteenth birthdays, are returned to the factory, no questions asked. But one girl wants to know more and fights to gain the answers she craves.

Alexandra Sirowy‘s The Creeping to Simon & Schuster (World Rights) in a two-book deal. Publication set for 2015. YA thriller. A girl vanished with her friend when they were both five, and was the only one who returned. Now, years later, she is beginning to recover memories from that time amid a wave of creepy events.
