Kurzbeschreibung

New York, 1908. Prometheus Grey—hapless escape artist, charlatan spiritualist, and thief—stumbles upon an opportunity to be forgiven for his checkered past. To earn a pardon for his crimes, he must perform a secret service for the United States: he must seek out a man known only as Brother Iscariot, the modern leader of a worldwide conspiracy bent on the destruction of national governments and the subjugation of Mankind. But Prometheus is not alone—he is joined by a band of unlikely heroes, each with special talents, on a mission to bring down Iscariot once and for all. To succeed, they will have to put differences aside and trust one another as they travel the globe, confronting secret societies, pagan fanatics, and scientific horrors of the Industrial Age.

"An electric tale flickering with conspiracy, lust and betrayal." --Kirkus Reviews

HASH(0x8bc8cb1c) von 5 Sternen 4.5 stars-rounds up to 5 17. März 2015
Von Live & Laugh - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

The time setting, dialogue, theme, *everything* was exactly what I was looking for! Victorian (?-might not be Victorian-somewhere close to that era), classy, a flawed, perfect main character, and lots of realistic feelings going on here. The time setting and history was nicely researched, and I sincerely appreciate the main character's effort to get to know everyone. Oh, and the only thing I did not like?
The ending.
*SPOILER ALERT DO NOT READ THIS IF YOU DO NOT LIKE SPOILER ALERTS*
The ending had so a character death, possibly two, and I just-ugh! It really broke me because I was so attached to the characters.
*END OF SPOILER ALERT*
Very, very good overall! I would definitely recommend, and I sincerely think that this author is AMAZING!!! I'll be looking forward for your books in the future, J. Clark Hallvin!

Riotous. Fantastical. Weird. Funny.

"Prometheus grey is a rogue, a reprobate, an inveterate liar," and you are hearing it straight from the horse's mouth, but his first person account is "true, faithfully recorded . . . and embellished only where necessary."

A team of oddballs, perfectly suited to the needs of the President himself, is being assembled. Prometheus, a one-time escape artist and psychic medium, with his cohort, which consists of an nebbishy accountant, a luminescent woman of mystery, and a giant bare-knuckle fighter, are under secret orders to pursue a certain "Brother Iscariot," and save the world from a plot to "master all laws, religions, and governments of the world in order to enslave mankind." Each has his and her own secrets, which are cunningly revealed to the reader at leisure, and strengths which only become apparent when a crux is stumbled upon and failure of the mission is, once again, imminent. The story unfurls not unlike the Perils of Pauline, and yes, people are thrown from aboard a moving steam train.

Travel from hither to yon with the most entertaining crew of investigators assembled since the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, and meet up with world famous psychics, mystics, geniuses, and royalty, both British and otherwise. I'll be revisiting this story soon.

This book was a great read, I didn't want to put it down! I was leery at first if it was going to be something I would like, but decided to give it a try at least. I was pleasantly surprised with how well it is written and the story line was very intriguing before I knew it I was halfway through the book and when I wasn't able to read it I caught myself wondering about what would happen next and wishing I could just read a little more! Definitely give this one a try you won't be disappointed!

Von Shannon M. Singleton - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

I just completed my first read of "The Order of the Albatross" within the last hour and immediately set about crafting my review on Amazon. I would highly recommend this book to fans of thrilling adventures in the vein of the old Victorian stories. I will try to keep this as spoiler free as possible so excuse the vagueness in some of the remarks (you will understand what I mean once you finish).

From the beginning you realize this is a first person account from Mr. Prometheus Grey and chronicles his adventures with his comrades against a shadowy organization. Each of the main characters is given a rich back-story which is explained at points without feeling heavy handed or forced. He weaves each segment around locations and famous figures and uses them as rich set pieces to keep the story moving. He avoids falling into a few of the classic tropes which keeps the story grounded. All in all you keep a feeling of excitement at what could be next and a sense of anticipation with each paragraph read. During a few spots you notice what could either be a missing edit from either the author or from Mr. Grey's perspective.

You can tell a lot of time was spent on research for the ancillary characters and locations to make sure they stayed true to their real life counterparts. Overall, the story is sort of a League of Extraordinary Gentlemen without the famous literary heroes and villains. Oh, and a lack of Sean Connery as well (for the folks who only know the movie).

Pros:
- Well developed characters
- Smooth flow and continued build of excitement
- Attention to detail to the little things

Cons:
- A quick read and some may find it is a short read
- Few minor editing mistakes
