Book Review: Rogue Spartan by Matt James

A tale of a nerdy hacker that gets the guts and support to try and save the world.

I can identify with a nerdy computer whiz that also seems to have a natural ability to make friends and get into trouble. Felix is a fun little character in the book that I really enjoyed and that pulled my gothier rebel against society side in.

The end did have a couple of nice little surprises that I hadn’t predicted.

I would have liked to see the plot not progress quite as quickly, or would have liked to hear more about Ben, the main character, and his past.

There were a few moments that got confusing by having the wrong character name. There were a few words that were not misspelled but were the wrong words. So, I’d say, the book could have used some more editing, but it wasn’t enough to lose the message. Its common for self published works to have these sorts of issues. (I’ve conversed with the author, and he has expressed interest in fixing the couple of errors I found. Quick turn around there. Awesome.)
