#BookReview :: The Warrior (Warriors #1) by Ty Patterson

A man with no past
Nobody knows much about Zeb Carter. He doesn’t do romance, avoids friendships… and when asked about his work, says he is a security consultant. 

A man on a mission
The ex-Special Forces operative has seen it all before. But when he witnesses barbaric acts in the Congo, he can’t simply walk away. Plagued by the scale of the unspeakable crimes and its victims, Zeb breaks the rules - both his own, and those whom he works for - by seeking his own brand of justice. 

A man with no future
With a maverick intelligence analyst, Broker, along for the ride, Zeb finds himself up against an adversary who is more than a match for his skills.

From the rainforests of the Congo to the concrete jungle of New York, Zeb enters a shadowy world – a world where he alone is interested in justice. Everyone else wants the affair buried… and Zeb along with it.

I had received this book about over a year back from the author in exchange for a honest review. But somehow this one slipped through the gaps and I finally discovered it again while cleaning up my kindle. It was completely my loss! This book provided me with a few hours of thrills and chills…

Zeb Carter is a security consultant but very few people know about his past. He has seen some carnage in his time, but the incident at the small village in Congo is beyond what a person can stand. Zeb decides to bait the killers and with a person who deals in information by his side. But is he a match for the cold blooded killers he is tracking? Or will they prove to be too much for him? 

Zeb is one hell of a character. He is everything that one expects from a protagonist of a thriller. He is brave, intelligent and he certainly has the x-factor thing down. It is easy to like him, to cheer for him but I found it a bit difficult to actually know him properly. As it is my personal quirk to want to know as much possible about a character, I did wish for more information on his background. But I see that this book is only a part of a series and as such I guess we will learn more and more about Zeb in the consecutive books. The plot is quite good and the author had me fooled for a spin. I did see the ending coming but that didn’t stop me from enjoying the ride with Zeb.

For the first book in a series, and possibly the author’s debut novel, this book is quite good. The narrative needed a bit of fine tuning but I guess that happens over the time as the author finds Zeb’s true voice.
