    A take off on GI Joe? Okay, that is a good comparison. I enjoyed this fun action read and will either buy the set with the first 5 books or pick up each book one at a time. Love the Russian character, can't wait to hear his whole story. The main American hero: Joseph Braddock (Joe) is truly a GJ Joe in spirit. With a NATO feel there is also Canadian special operator who ends up with a cool sci-fi techno suit. Villains are right out the GI Joe area as well.

I got a comic book feel from this book (which is okay, as I am a comic book junkie as well). Off to finish The Deserter next and maybe scout around for the Olympus Rises set of books.

    Fast paced and hard to put down I liked this book. Futuristic tech embedded into the battle front. Loyal Army Rangers and truly evil bad guys. It was hard for me to stop reading so I could study for class. The characters have depth and personality. A great read for sure. Going to be pursuing the rest of the books in this series.

    This is one of the most wonderful action thriller book I have come across in recent times. One cannot stop after starting at the first page. The author has brought out the book in such a way that a serious reader can visualize the entire story in front of him in high definition images. I am sure that the reader will enjoy reading this book more than he watches this in a movie version at a later stage. Storyline: Olympus, a secret powerful private military owned and operated by an unknown business This is one of the most wonderful action thriller book I have come across in recent times. One cannot stop after starting at the first page. The author has brought out the book in such a way that a serious reader can visualize the entire story in front of him in high definition images. I am sure that the reader will enjoy reading this book more than he watches this in a movie version at a later stage. Storyline: Olympus, a secret powerful private military owned and operated by an unknown businessman develops a secret war code much more advanced than any known form of CIA’s technology, in order to take control of the entire world at one go. All this happens in a secret base in a country called Kazinistan, north of Afghanistan. NATO forces accidentally discover this secret mission of Olympus and set off a mission to capture the secret Code of War. One must read this action filled book to know whether they were finally successful in achieving their mission or not. The acts, plots, ambushes, are so thrilling that one would detach himself/herself completely from his world to finish the book at one go. It’s worth getting to know about the deadly weapons developed by CIA and Olympus to counter each other, using technology that is generations ahead. Whisper Suit (a powerful exoskeleton to enhance the physical and mental strength of the user), Volare flight packs ( a kind of jet packs armed with latest guns that can melt a man like ice), Dushka machine gun, Hyperion VTOL aircrafts, Composition 9 (C9) detonators (powerful enough to bring down an entire fortress and a near earthquake), Hind E helicopters, anti radar Black Hawk helos are some of the few wonders of latest weaponry the reader gets to learn. It’s quite terrifying to understand that such secret private military outfits can go to an extent of developing weapons much more advanced than those available with the best in class of CIA. I strongly recommend one to read this book to get to foresee the kind of wars the future is going to witness on this earth. Weak governments of weak countries may all be the slaves of such powerful Private Militaries, if our super power nations do not curtail their dangerous progress into mass destruction weaponry. Though the story doesn’t end with this book, I am sure that the reader would jump at subsequent books in series to know what’s next. My rating is 4.25 out of 5

He thinks with the precision of the seasoned soldier and acts with the callous disregard of the sociopath. '"I'm sorry sir," the trooper stammered, knowing full well what displeasing Commander Dante entailed, "It was a mistake!" 'Dante was fast approaching a fury. Few survived one of Commander Dante's furies. He reached down with his iron strong hand and grasped Centurion Alpha by the neck and hoisted him to his feet. '"My dear comrade, mistakes are how empires fall!" And with that, he grabbed the struggling Centurion's belt clasp with one hand and lifted the soldier into the waiting rotor blades of the helicopter. With a sickening *grunch* the blades tore through the torso of the hapless soldier. Chunks of gore and blood spattered across the site. Satisfied, Dante tossed the torso-less cadaver to the side.' Like a mad dog with only one master, Dante reports to the Imperator. The Imperator wants the Code of War. A band of Army Rangers is determined to stop Olympus at any cost. Jim Roberts' Olympus Rises (The Code of War) is a well-written, speculative military fiction. In the author's own words: "Olympus Rises is my attempt to give people hungry for heroism and true tests of courage on the battlefield a book that will kindle their imagination and leave them wanting more." Mr. Roberts, your attempt is successful.

    The good: Lots of action and a good fast pace. I'm glad the main protagonist can get hurt. The bad: Too many clichés. The main antagonist, Dante, is dressed like M. Bison from the Street Fighter video games. Don't get me wrong, I liked the Street Fighter video games a lot but I just think that there should be some variety and depth in bad guys. Being former military, I also wasn't too keen on some of the military references.

Being former military, I also wasn't too keen on some of the military references. I'm not sure how the Canadian army operates but in the U.S. Army, privates do not call Staff Sergeants "sir". They also do not have Corporals as pilots and mechanics of rotary-wing aircraft. They can be mechanics but you have to be a Chief Warrant Officer or an Officer to pilot any aircraft. Overall, it was a good quick read. Just a few discrepancies that bothered me is all.

    Fantastic military sci-fi An extraordinary story, compelling characters and a definite triumph as a first installment of a series. Truly a great book, very engaging. Easy to pick up but very difficult to put down. It feels like a short story because it is almost a "real time" story. It's the tale of very few days, every thing moves at brake neck speed and the twists and turns come at you fast and make you want to keep on reading to find out what happens now. At the same time, you grow to care for Fantastic military sci-fi An extraordinary story, compelling characters and a definite triumph as a first installment of a series.

    Secret armies. Ninja-women. Super-powered suits. I live for this stuff. What starts as a very-grounded military thriller in the last days of the Afghanistan operation ends up in a very different place. I'll try to avoid too many spoilers because part of the fun of Olympus Rises is watching the story escalate. This is what the GI Joe movies should have been like. The action is intense and the characters feel heroic. There is a cinematic feel to Roberts writing and every military element feels well Secret armies. Ninja-women. Super-powered suits.

    Returning bad guys, even done tastefully can be quite annoying. More so , when good guys don't understand that people can come back from the dead until you really deal with them. This book was action paced, but not written in a way that kept you interested. A lot of the bad guys were cliche, and it didn't have much of a storyline the book. That wouldn't be so bad if the action was written better, but it wasn't. Main points why I didn't like it was because it was cliche and silly.

    I think this was an amazing book and I am going to buy the second book.The plot to this story was great along with the detail and characters. It had me staying up all night reading until I fell asleep with my kindle in my hand. The Russian would have to be my favorite character because of his over all personality. I would recommend this book to anybody who loves war and action.

    There are a few minor details that the author got "wrong" like the 76th Ranger Regiment. it should be 75th. unless it was deliberate like MiG-28s in Top Gun, the details can detract, especially if the reader really was a Ranger or Green Berets.

    Fantastic The story picks up pretty quick. It's a noteworthy book where even the main character can be harmed and actually feel the pain. I would recommend this book for everyone akin to action mystery and war thrillers. Fantastic The story picks up pretty quick.
