    As an avid reader I normally zip through books in one day. This bugger took me two days and I haven't really left with much more than I began as it was extremely difficult to connect to the plot or the characters.It's one of those multi character, multi plots, with plenty of action but not enough substance.A slow exhausting and draining reveal that leads to a host of bogus and illegal action which then leads to chemical warfare and multi vehicle accidents.I'm not sure what more I can tell you as As an avid reader I normally zip through books in one day.

Don't ask don't tell I suppose is the motto.On a good note I can tell you this, "There will be better days." so hang tough folks.As cyber space is the number one crime these days and apparently the US President wants to use Net Force to tackle the problem head on.Of course nothing runs smoothly and the nation is under attack in a two prong effort before anything gets up and running.Now global catastrophe is on the horizon if the crime experts can't hack the hacker.So there you have it.Just a head up if you read this on NetGalley every 4 pages is like one page just saying as I believe it's over 700 pages. I usually go by percentages not pages but it was very lengthy and detail oriented.Thank you to Jerome, the publisher, NetGalley for this ARC in exchange for this honest review.

    Net Force: Dark Web is a lengthy novel (almost 700 pages) cursed with a complex, multi-faceted plot. With all of the plot points on so many different fronts it develops very slowly. Along with much less character development than I would have liked to see this makes the first-half of the book slow moving and tedious at times. The second-half moves much faster.

The book pacing was really slow too and I felt like I was running a marathon reading this. I felt mentally exhausted and I was so confused throughout the whole book. I really thing it should have been split up into multiple books or something because how it is isn't working for me lol.Verdict: Not my cup of tea.

The summary sounded great and I know a lot of people are big fans of this series. Sadly though, this just didn’t do it for me. I found the characters to be really difficult to connect to. Don’t get me wrong, they were developed very well, but there was just something about them that made it really hard for me to relate to them. I have read a lot books with very bright characters, so that wasn’t the problem. They just didn’t seem like read people is what I’m getting out. It was like the author was trying to bring them in for us, but failing to make them seem so very real. It was like they were completely disconnected is what I’m getting out. The plot was kind of a slow burn. It seemed like it was going to move very quickly, but it didn’t. there was some aspects of the plot that I really enjoyed. All of the tech and government stuff was really engaging to me, but the other parts of it, just didn’t do it for me. I know this has a lot going on in it, but it felt a little uneven to me. I did like that everything was a little open ended at the end. This is a series, so I do like having a reason to read the next book-which I don’t think I will be doing so. I really don’t know. I wanted to like it, but I just really couldn’t get into it. I think I was just the wrong reader for this book. I do think that a lot of other people will really enjoy this one. This book comes out on November 26, 2019.

    Full review on my blog, Storied AdventuresLikes: Writing was well done. Plot was interesting. HIVE with Audrey Hepburn’s voice as she simulates a very real seeming virtual reality. The plot seemed so real! A cyber threat is really scary. The fact that a terrorist group could potentially take control of our devices, is terrifying.Dislikes: It was very slow. It didn’t pick up until over half way through the book. I also didn’t connect with any of the characters.

    Net Force: Dark Web, created by Tom Clancy and written by Jerome Preisler, is a technothriller set in the year 2023. Terrorists have figured out how to use unprotected smart products to commit their acts of terror against the United States. The president, foreseeing this inevitability, has been trying to form Net Force, a cabinet-level security force that uses the most advanced technology to protect us from such attacks. On the day and in the place that the president is announcing this new Net Force: Dark Web, created by Tom Clancy and written by Jerome Preisler, is a technothriller set in the year 2023. Terrorists have figured out how to use unprotected smart products to commit their acts of terror against the United States. The president, foreseeing this inevitability, has been trying to form Net Force, a cabinet-level security force that uses the most advanced technology to protect us from such attacks. On the day and in the place that the president is announcing this new security force, an attack hits New York throwing the city into chaos and leaving little doubt to the necessity of the Net Force.Favorite character : Kali Alcazar the Outlier – she is a very complex character whose loyalties are always in question. She is smart, no-nonsense, and able to take down large bodyguards in a single blow…okay, that a little bit of an exaggeration, but she did take down a large bodyguard. Most importantly, she makes the right choices in hard situations.What I Like About Net Force Dark WebIt is exceptionally well written. The dialogue flows naturally. There is just the right balance of dialogue and exposition, enabling the reader to maintain a fast pace. The flow from various parts of the story is logical and easy to follow. And, the story stays focused.The story contains lots of near misses that keep you guessing and the pages flipping. This is an essential attribute for the genre and because the novel is so long. I was grateful that even though the book is pretty weighty in size, it’s still a compelling read, and I didn’t feel like I was reading over 700 pages.The story is about technology, so there is lots of tech jargon. Fortunately, it is written in such a way that it is easy to understand. And, the technology in the story definitely adds a cool factor.The topic of the story is timely. With all that is going on in the news lately, like concerns over other countries interfering in US elections by using the internet, readers can easily connect to this story and recognize the potential of it.What I Wish About Net Force Dark WebI wish the ending had been more conclusive. It ends on a ”to be continued” note, and I would have loved to have a few of the storylines wrapped up for the current story. I don’t want to say too much about this because I don’t want to reveal any spoilers.To Read or Not to ReadNet Force Dark Web is an excellent read for people who like technothrillers or just thrillers in general. It was recommended to me because I love Jack Ryan on Amazon Prime, and I think that was a pretty accurate recommendation.Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for providing me with this ARC in exchange for an honest review.

    I was really excited to see this story available from HQN for review. I’d been reading a lot of romance lately and needed a break. I thought this thriller would be it, unfortunately it was not. I couldn’t really get into the story. It was confusing at times, with all the subplots and characters. I’d have to keep going back to find out which characters were with what subplot.

You’re lead through so many dark alleys, countries, and streets in each different one that I felt I should have made a map of the characters. The story gets convoluted and the characters get murky after a while. I should have stopped reading it when I realized the headache it was going to induce with the different stories all trying to coalesce into one. I was told many times when I would have to stop reading, that I should DNF but I didn’t, I stuck through to the very end and I was not happy with the ending either. It just ends. You read just over 700 pages (YES 704 pages per Amazon!) and the story just stops, but there’s really no ending. I won’t be reading any more of this series, it’s just not for me. There’s little character development and it takes entirely too long for the story to pick up the pace. With so many subplots and characters that was brought in, I don’t think there’s anyway to do the story justice. And the story could be a good one. With today’s society, everything from the microchips in our pets, to our mobile devices, to our debit/credit cards, everything is attached to the web. If something bad gets in, it could knock everything out. This book goes through that possibility. This book is set a couple years into the future, and there’s a lot of technical aspects to it. I would suggest this book to someone who normally reads international thrillers heavy with technology. If you’re looking for a nice, relaxing, take your mind off of work read, this 704 page behemoth of a story might not be for you.**I received an ARC of this story and this is my honest review

    A Technothriller That Could Happen TodayA devastating cyberattack cripples the US just as President Focillo is set to announce the creation of a cabinet level group, Net Force, to deal with the cyberthreats posed by all the non-secure device in the US. She knows that the nation’s number one threat will undoubtedly come from cyberattacks, but she has not been able to persuade Congress or the skeptical intelligence agencies of the seriousness of the threat.This is a very detailed look at A Technothriller That Could Happen TodayA devastating cyberattack cripples the US just as President Focillo is set to announce the creation of a cabinet level group, Net Force, to deal with the cyberthreats posed by all the non-secure device in the US. She knows that the nation’s number one threat will undoubtedly come from cyberattacks, but she has not been able to persuade Congress or the skeptical intelligence agencies of the seriousness of the threat.This is a very detailed look at cyberattacks. It is closely written, packed with information, but it is easy to read because the author keeps the technical detail at a manageable level for the average reader. The plot is complex with plenty of action and the cast of characters very large. However, I found it easy to follow. The major characters are threaded through the action with chapters devoted to scenes in other countries and organizations. One of my favorite characters is Kali, she appears in the opening of the novel. She’s young, but she has an obvious skill in cybertechnology. She’s tough, able to cleverly use judo to disable a strong man. She also wants to maintain her independence. The setting moves through various countries. Each area is well described. You could almost be there and the characters are well developed so you feel as if you know them. My only real criticism is that the ending felt unfinished. I suspect that’s because another book is planned. If you enjoy technothrillers, this is a good one. It’s long, but it keeps your interest. I received this book from Harper Collins for this review.

It is a slow start but that's also because everything is being set up and put in place for what comes next. Just make it through that and you'l be ready for the rest. It's a good read so don't get me wrong and it's most definitely a read worth the time and brain power to get through it but you might need to make some notes. Either way there's no denying the story is well written and researched from these authors that do spy stories that keep the blood pumping and overcome all the obstacles.

I'm sure this is the first of a series, though, as there were a lot of unanswered questions and loose ends by the end of the book.I wish this book had focused a bit more on just a few characters, instead of some of the brief intros of the experiences of some, without making them an actual character in the storyline.

    The first thing you need to know is this book is about 700 pages long!

    An action packed, fast paced, gripping and entertaining novel that kept me on the edge till the end.I loved the well crafted and engrossing plot, the well thought cast of characters and the solid mystery.It's the first book I read in this series and won't surely be the last.It was a fun read, highly recommended.Many thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for this ARC, all opinions are mine.

    This is the first book that I have read by this author and I DNFed at 60% of the book I thought that it was going to get better. I just couldn’t get into it. I know that there are other that will like this book but it just wasn’t for me. I thought that it was a bit tedious at points. * I recieved this book from HQN books in exchange for an honest review*

    An enjoyable read with a huge cast of characters with an international scope. I really enjoyed the technological aspects of the story from future technologies to the intricacies of cyberhacking. It helped that there was a set of core characters on which to focus. I would definitely read future books set in this thrilling universe!

    I wasn't to sure what I was going to get out of this novel. But I am really glad that I picked this one up! This was stellar! It might be on the longer side but I flew though the pages in a day!! I loved the fast pace of the story and all the characters were wonderful. I am thinking that this is based on a tv show or something. And if it is I will totally have to check it out.

    Full out action packed book. Several threads of separate stories that are pulled together to make an amazing story. Each separate story line is interesting but added the rest makes a book that is impossible to put down. Excellent!

    This was so long. I mean, I think it could have been a bit shorter and still have been just as exciting. It was a little confusing at times, but overall I liked it.
