  • 5 Stars Harbingers, Repairman Jack 10 is another fantastic installment of one of my favorite on going series F Paul Wilson has created a special series led by a main character in Jack that always walks the line between good and bad The Repairman Jack series has developed into one of my favorite series out there and I can never seem to get enough Wilson does an amazing job at making each book work as a standalone while at the same time never neglecting the overall story arc We the reader now not [...]


  • Hot dog we re back on track with this one I like the Repairman Jack series but have to point out that the individual novels can run hot and cold The one I read just before this was possibly probably the weakest of the series I was almost bored with it and while it does fill in some gaps in the overall story was simply slow and had major holes in it s interest level.Not so here From the weak book we launch into a major jump forward in the story probably baring out some things you ve suspected or [...]


  • Well I ve finally calmed down from the free fall that is Harbingers A roller coaster ride that had me wrought with emotion throughout most of it Increasingly this series has gotten harrowing, personal, and emotional with the systematic picking off of Jack s family and the advancing horror of the Otherness There are some serious twists and turns in this novel as Jack gets closer to revealing the reasons behind his role in the battle between evil and not so evil or is it evil and aggressively a [...]


  • I started my review of Crisscross with These get darker and darker I had no idea This one really puts you through the ringer More of The Ally is revealed than ever before too.




  • After the double whammy of the last book, Jack is feeling appropriately glum He s not even taking on new jobs at this point because of his high glum rating But, of course, someone at the bar makes a special request, and Jack feels sorry for him, and hijinks ensue The opening gambit is really just a way for Wilson to introduce the main story here, of course, which involves explaining a lot of the lingering questions that have come up through the first nine books of the series This is probably our [...]


  • This book deserves 4 and three quarter stars really With a compact plot ie less meandering and less plugging plot holes as an afterthought, this book gets the series back on track It s almost a reboot of sorts Or at the very least mr Wilson applied the defibrillator to his overall story just in the nick of time Questions answered, reasons given and the perennially how can you be so thick jack finally gets a clue Maybe we re just back where we started But at least we know why


  • I m not sure how much Jack can take at this point I m curious to know where the story goes from here If you are a new reader to the series, I wouldn t start with this book, go back to the beginning.




  • I m starting to find the casual Islamophobia of the characters in this series a bit much to take If F Paul Wilson doesn t control it better, his books will soon look like Andrew Klavan s.



  • This tenth novel of the Repairman Jack series has firmly cemented the series as one of my all time favorite series, all genres included , although I think I could say that beginning with book 3 or 4 as well All of the novels read like chapters in one long novel, taking place over just a few years And it seems that the closer we get to the end the less time lapses between each novel For those that have yet to try Repairman Jack, think of these novels as exciting thriller novels embedded inside a [...]


  • Wow, just wow RMJ 10 is no doubt my favorite in the series Harbingers is a dark and Brutal twist in the Repairman Jack saga I saw this book coming, but I felt like I was frozen on a train track as a speeding locomotive was coming to crush me while reading this book As much as I think this is the best in the series I can see that many will not dig this entry in the series I also think this book will lack power if you are not already read the previous books Most of the repairman Jack books can som [...]


  • This is an average outing for F Paul Wilson in the Repairman Jack series On the good side, the meta plot which has been threading through the series becomes a lot clearer in Harbingers A lot is explained about The Ally, The Otherness, and my favorites, the Ladies With the Dogs The downside is that it occurs in a book without a really compelling plot or much drama The tone of the series is getting steadily darker That may or may not be a bad thing, depending on the reader What I had liked about t [...]


  • F Paul Wilson has written better While I found this entertaining, it was also vaguely unsatisfying My main problem was that, while the protagonist Repairman Jack is interesting, he isn t especially well developed as a character at least in this book He keeps telling us how much he cares about the people in his life, but they re just words I never sensed any depth in his feelings As such, when he goes on his campaign of vengeance against the men who hurt his loved ones, it just seems gratuitous.T [...]


  • In the tenth Repairman Jack book we find ourselves, as readers, in a position to figure out exactly what the hell is going on There are no coincidences in life seems to be the mantra of this book, as it explains the series of familial deaths Jack struggles to understand the dynamics between the Ally and the Adversary as he comes to terms with his own crisis and the mystery behind a group of warrior men called yeniceri.This was a decent come back after the groan fest that comprised Book 9 Infern [...]


  • Jack is Back I was a bit worried when I read the 9th installment of the Repairman Jack series,to put it mildly sucked Needless to say I was a bit leary to pick up 10 of the series,even though 1 8 were awesome, 9 just was not good at all Then came the fateful day,while perusing Borders I saw that Harbingers was out in paperback After a few minutes of arguing with myself whether I wanted to continue the series or not,I picked it up It found it s way home with me that night,still to sit upon my she [...]


  • The tenth chapter in the Repairman Jack saga and the books really are like chapters of one enormous novel Wilson rarely takes the time to explain past events, but refers to them only obliquely This time, Jack meets the yene ari, a loyal army of men trained from birth to serve the Oculus, people who get messages from the Ally Jack is now formally identified as the Heir to the previous Sentinel, but when he realizes that the Ally is making him into a spear by culling everyone he s ever loved, Jack [...]


  • After Jack lost the last of his family in the previous novel in this series, I was thinking the books would pick up again Both Hosts and Infernal were a bit subpar in terms of action, but this one corrects this by looking at one of the ignored aspects of the series, the inaccurately named cosmic entity The Ally and its forces, men in black The novel gave some background for Jack, including him telling what he would have done had he not gone into his current line of work Jack getting cosmic hi [...]


  • I enjoyed this novel very much I had been wanting to get it for my kindle and then happened to run across it in the library I had forgotten some of the previous novels, but I remembered enough about the ally and adversary stuff that it was not necessary to go back and reread Wilson is however starting to tie in of his Secret Histories of the World, bringing in the Adversary Cycle and building up to end the world with Nightworld which does seem to spoil reading the rest of the Repairman Jack ser [...]


  • I really enjoyed this Repairman Jack novel it was a terrific story integrating all the elements of the fantasy part of the Repairman Jack saga as well as introducing some new elements, filling in some prehistory, and raising new questions The concept of Ally and Adversary reflect one interpretation of the chaotic yet ordered universe Gia, Jack s love interest plays a significant role here, but once again seems somewhat out of place Jack s relationship with Gia always seems off, and is the one w [...]


  • In Harbingers, Jack works a case in a classic action thriller A friend at Julio s needs help His niece has come up missing It s too early to involve the cops, so of course Jack is his go to man This very soon leads to characters working for The Ally called the Yeniceri They are a group of devout followers willing to do anything The Ally wants of them, all commanded through the visions, or alarms , of the Oculus There s just one problem The Oculus gets alarms commanding the Yeniceri to murder a p [...]


  • Ten books into the series and this might be the best yet Although at this point Jack has gotten away from fix its, he still had plenty of opportunities for creative use of his skills Jack is also settling into his role in the larger story arc involving the adversary.The story involves Jack getting drawn into a group called the M.V, who have a connection to the Ally mentioned in earlier books At the same time, those close to Jack continue to get drawn in through a very thrilling hit and run seque [...]


  • This was my first Repairman Jack novel It ll probably be my last This is another book where the title seems to have no relation to the book itself This is one in a series, and the individual book did not stand well alone The author repeatedly referred to things that had happened in previous books without explaining them Some of the assumptions just didn t make sense Lots of violence This is a world where the only way to deal with problems is to kill everyone Without remorse or second thoughts An [...]


  • Book ten in the Repairman Jack series, this follows closely on from the events of the previous book Jack is depressed about losing successive members of his family, but doesn t know yet how much worse things can get A regular at Julio s asks him to find his niece, and the rescue introduces him to the Yeniceri, a group of underworld soldiers who exist to protect the Oculus, a hereditary oracle Of course everything is connected to previous events in Jack s life and his purpose in the battle betwee [...]


  • This is where it all really comes together and begins to hurtle towards the final showdown There have been tons of connections between the books in this series up to this point, but they were all still pretty much able to be read as standalones, with plotlines that would resolve by the time you closed the back cover This is probably the last book that you could say that about, and it s questionable whether or not you would to begin with Jack and we as readers finally start to get answers to some [...]


  • The 10th Repairman Jack book ranks among the best in the series In terms of a stand alone book, well, it doesn t Read The Tomb if you haven t read this series before This assumes you ve kept up with Jack s recent tragic history, including many references from the 3rd book of the series among others With that context, the series and its connection to F Paul Wilson s Secret History of the World, really starts to get intense Jack is in dire straits, and yet becomes the bad ass when needed than an [...]


  • Better overall than the previous book, this one deals with Jack s decision to integrate into the real world, and the obstacles that the mystical world throws in his way Bad things happen, and sometimes this series deals with the dark and ugly side of a world that is than just a normal world There are ancient and dark powers at work here, and at times that takes away from the normal side of the story HARBINGERS does a good job of balancing the omnipotent mystical stuff with the normal part of t [...]
