    Eye of the Tiger: A Paranormal Space Opera Adventure (Star Justice Book 1) by Michael-Scott Earle is a super awesome sci-fi novel that had me glued to my tablet!

    Unanswered questions Weretiger...in space. . So this isn't really ^science^ fiction, except that they have space ships and plasma weapons and lasers. The vampire is less of an issue, as she is simply an enhanced human type. Gaining mass and size violates some physical laws, which is well within SF, but usually requires explainable tech. And nothing gets explained. And that is the problem. Stuff just works. Shotguns slugs penetrate several bodies and body armor with ease.

The weretiger gets big and furry without needing to eat until he shifts back. He heals from severe wounds, changes back to human form, and passes out, only waking to eat a day later. What is his energy source?!?!? Even the evil corporation trope is hackneyed and weak. Motivations aren't explained, simply assumed. Senior people are evil because...megacorp...and evil.

    truly dreadful clumsy writing, no fleshed out characters, plot=one chase scene after another, almost no world building.

[Eve (heroine vampire) talking to Adam (hero weretiger)] "They will not capture us. Death will take us first. It would be our last freedom, and while I would choose life for obvious reasons, dying by your side would bring me peace in the afterlife. “Confirmed,”I said to her." "Z and I were silent for a moment as we pondered the words Eve just spoke. hero is totally wooden, while author continually describes Eve as 'the beautiful woman' or 'the dark beauty', and fails to give her any personality beyond "there's a lot of evil out there and we need to save people from it." Other woman started off with somewhat of a character, but then devolved into sidekick with crush on hero (and maybe also on heroine). Majorly awful.

    When I first looked at the cover, I immediately thought "Man-Kzin Wars" Which I enjoyed immensely 40 years ago or so, and have just recently started rereading. I was glad this wasnt a redo. I really like how Mr Earle writes. Graphic, down to earth, straight forward and I cant wait for the next. Yes, it has adult language, and I am damn glad of it. Keep 'em comin and screw political correctness and lets have some FUN!!!!

You are caught from the very first page and can't stop reading until you reach the last page. Michael-Scott Earl's descriptions of the scenery, places, and characters has the ability to make you feel that you are a part of the story and can relate to the fears, anger, and emotions of the characters. His character development and descriptions of his characters personalities, emotions, and the reasons behind their actions is excellent. Adam, an ex special-ops space marine, has been imprisoned for the last two years in a scientific laboratory environment. He has been tortured and experimented with constantly. He is kept in a cage until he is needed for the next military operation. His DNA has been manipulated with and he is forced to shift into a were-tiger for his special assignments. Eve is a beautiful woman with telepathic abilities. She has also been held imprisoned, tortured , and experimented on. Her DNA has been manipulated to turn her into a vampire. When they escape, they are constantly trying to out run the men who want to kill Adam and capture Eve. I love Adam and Eve together. They are the perfect complement to each other. I thoroughly enjoyed Eye of the Tiger!! I can't wait to read the next book in the series!!! KMc

I love the concept but I think we go full throttle into action without explaining the motivations properly. i really wanted to like this book.

    This is not Good. It's very simplistic, with fairly flimsy characters. But it still entertained me; I was looking for a "popcorn action flick" and this fit. In addition I enjoyed the audiobook's narrator, who put real effort into new alien accents and Adam's growling words when in tiger form, as well as Z's "fast southern" was appealing.

    I bought the entire series because of this book. This is space opera at it's best. I'm totally enthralled with K, Adam and Eve. I just finished this and I'm already looking forward to what's about to happen next. Long story short. Man ex Marine ex Yakuza current test subject saves a vampire and gets into a lot of gun fights trying to get off the planet. Along the way they pick up K and there are more gun fights.

There is a LOT of action, there is chemistry between the characters, K is goddamn hilarious and Adam is just plan awesome. I would LOVE for this to become a TV show or even a movie, but I don't think they'd be able to get the characters right. And when I say chemistry, I'm not saying this is a space orgy, like these feel like actual people. The world building is also suburb and it feels like the dystopian future I can see. If you liked stuff like Blade Runner, V for Vendetta, or The Matrix, you're going to like this.

As part of that punishment he is turned over to a scientist who decides to create a group of were-tiger warriors who are controlled by a collar.

The idea of a crossover of paranormal and sci-fi has always fascinated me, and this author's really strong character creations seemed like a perfect fit for this kind of genre hybrid. I'm happy to say I was right, it is a great fit. In a far future where mankind has spread across the universe, Adam is a former prisoner who has been transformed through secret therapy to be able to transform into a tiger man for a certain amount of time, with enhanced, strength, speed, senses and durability. This therapy has been accompanied by heavy duty space marine training, as well as an explosive collar around his neck to keep him under control. He is part of a team of, for lack of a better term, Weretigers, and he has survived longer than any of the others. On a mission to retrieve a mysterious article from a corporation on a distant world, The mission goes from smooth to pear shaped quickly. As they get closer to the package, Adam starts hearing a voice in his head as he moves ahead of the rest of the team, telling him to come to where the objective is. As he kills his way to the target, he discovers a shock: the package is a woman named Eve being kept in some kind of stasis. Breaking her out of the machine she is kept in, she removes his control collar without it exploding, and tells him they need to escape. Since he is now free, and being no fan of his employer, he agrees is they can figure out how to get out. He also discovers that Eve is both a psychic and a vampire, and she has been kept weakened by lack of blood. This starts a wild escape, where they must get passed his teammates to start being able escape a ridiculously secured building, getting past drones, robotic canons, a large security force, as well as a corporate apparatus that will be on their tail if they do escape. They will later meet a smart mouth female hacker named Z who will provide them with documents to help escape, and when that goes pear shaped, she must go on the run with Adam and Eve to try and escape the planet and the hugely powerful conglomerate chasing them. Eve 's psychic ability leads them to an experimental ship they can escape on, although clearing their way past the huge security force and weapons emplacements is a wild fight, and is framed in a great, intensive series of scenes. It is intimated that their escaping the planet would force a dramatic shift in galactic politics, since corporations control so much of the power, although just how much should be interesting to discover as Adam, Eve and Z learn to coordinate their abilities to the fullest. As with his other books, characters are a great strength in this book. Adam and Eve are both powerful in their own rights, but show surprising vulnerability. Z is a fun foil for them, being the one that's not built for combat, so to speak, and is the one looking for a place to hide while Adam and Eve sort out the rough stuff. She is brilliant in her element though, and surprises you with her ingenuity and secret courage. The villains are a bit generic, since there is no one figure to really get to hate, other than a short scene with the control head for Adams marine team, just corporate minions and security. I do expect that to change in later books, although a monolithic corporate villain may be the direction it takes, which would also work. The setting has a very far future sci-fi feel to it. Vast interstellar distances, Cities that seem like a cross between Blade Runner and Minority Report, just straight sci fi cities overrun with corporate influence. The ships seem cool, and the other trappings, such as the robotic weapons platforms, the drones, the auto driving cars, the bio-engineered soldiers, they all fit with sense of a far flung galactic civilization. The crossover with the psychic/paranormal and the sci-fi is handled seamlessly, and is very enjoyable. All told, it really helps draw you in to the story. The narration by Eric Bryan Moore is spot on. He gives each character their own unique voice, and helps make you really get into each of them. His narrative pacing is solid, never lagging or falling into a monotone. He definitely brings solid work to the narration. Overall, this book should appeal to a wide range of readers/listeners. It has elements of military sci-fi, urban fantasy, vampire and were fantasy and even techno thrillers. It has strong female characters that are strong in their own right, not just because the males are weak. I can highly recommend this book.

Overall I enjoyed this novel, but it left me with a weird "missing something" taste in my mouth that demised the overall effect.

All three, with the help of each other, are trying to stay alive and away from the bad guys. There is so much action, character development lacks a bit, but hopefully it will expand in the future. I honestly wasn’t sure what to expect with a space opera, other than space. It’s told from a male perspective. Also note this book is not for children- there is a lot of violence, sexual situations (more along the lines Adam has noticed Eve’s breasts or butt in this book), and per the author himself, it is a harem book (1 man/2 women). If you are not comfortable with these things, this book is not for you. This series has the ability to go down a great path, and I’m assuming it does since there are now eight books in the series. Over all, it was a good book. It sets the stage for the future books and I look forward to the next one and how the characters develop. Would recommend if you’re looking for fast-paced action or are a fan of harem/space set novels. *Note: if you are interested in a book my Michael-Scott Earle that has a female viewpoint, I’d highly recommend Wings of Justice (City of Light book 1). This book is one of my favorites and highly underrated.

    The review is about whole series. First thing I need to say about novel is that author knows shit about space and tech. Space battles are incredibly stupid with sinking ships and implosions from "pressure" in space. The next is tech, and it is moronic. The NAV systems need manual imputs and there are no weapon auto targeting systems, when some "genius" from slums can construct self-aware Androids from garbage.

No one has ever heard about point defenses, because who needs point defenses when everyone with rocket launcher can shoot a space ship from the sky. The paranormal part is kinda alright, but in sci-fi setting, the powers need more logical reasons behind them. Like the Were-tiger transformation is a genetic mutation. Where does the extra mass come from? Where does the energy needed for powering healing, growing extra 100 kg of muscle mass and to power them come from? An ESPer with mind powers again genetically modified to be a vampire. Why does drinking blood improve her power? And lastly about action and characters. The shootouts are great, but characters are one-dimensional. Main character is angry almost perpetually and his answer to all problems is to punch it in face. Then there is panicky super Hacka. And cool beauty vampire. Well it would be alright, but their dialogues are all corny and moronic, like "We will die before they take us alive". Main characters know each-other for like 5 minutes and are already BFFs. I can understand that mind reader can trust them easily, but why does everybody else so trusting, when they are so disapointed in life? An Extra star for sexual themes in first books and all-out pornography in latter books.

    First of all, this isn't Space Opera. It's Cyberpunk-influenced MilSF. With vampires and weretigers and two lead characters about whom the only physical description I have is that the female character has black hair. Yes, there is FTL travel, but there's more to Space Opera than FTL.

The stakes are too low, for example (Space Opera tends to be larger-than-life with entire civilizations hanging on the actions of a small team of protagonists). There's no sense of chivalry. And it takes place almost entirely on a planet (as far as I got - I only got about 30% of the way in before I gave up). The lead character's background is time in the military, time in the yakuza, then subjected to some MegaCorp science experiment to turn him into a weretiger to make him The Ultimate Fighter. He's a cardboard cutout who responds to most requests with "Confirmed." And the story steers him - he has no individual drive beyond survival. It's bad. Really bad. I got about 30% of the way in before giving up. I enjoy bad books. I really do. But they need to ALSO be fun. This wasn't. This was some sort of bizarre male power fantasy with guns. It read like the planned Shadowrun campaign of someone who couldn't get any players. I'm just thankful for the Kindle Owners' Lending Library, so the only thing this cost me was time. And I wish I could get a refund on that.

    Wooden writing, wooden characters, wooden and unnatural dialogue. The only thing in this book that really comes alive is the lovingly-described violence. Military porn, with slaughter substituted for sex (though all the indications are that there’ll be plenty of sex in later books).

    I read this book just before the Amazon ban of MSE using my Kindle Unlimited account (he was banned for statistically too many people reading his books using KU and not buying the book outright - so I feel partly responsible). Now that he is releasing his books on his website www.michaelscottearle.com (Book 1 in most of his series is free) I thought I would work on reviewing all the books of his I read before the ban and those I just bought from his website that I recently read.

This was the first book of MSE's I read, the cover pulled me in, I thought wow a weretiger with a gun in a Sci-Fi book, must give that a go. I was sick in bed with the flu at the time and I blasted through the whole series in just a few days. The story is a classic, weretiger meets space vampire (who his slave/soldier team was sent to capture or kill) and falls in love, then the majority of the universe tries their best to kill them, while they both seek answers of who they really are and why they are being hunted. Great action battles (on planets and in space) and few against many fight scenes are well captured and described in detail by MSE, as this tale of an unlikely hero who starts from scratch works his way up. Book 1 is currently free but I doubt you can stop at just one (you have been warned - its super addictive). Another warning: this series gradually introduces adult concepts (sex).

    I bought this in Kindle format based on Amazon's recommendation. I still think someone over at Amazon is screwing with me, because if someone had told me this book was about a weretiger and a space vampire-witch I would never have touched this book. Lots of shooting and killing in this book with a lot of mayhem and destruction. The weretiger is very good at killing and is hard to kill. So far the vampire-witch is more comedic company and sexy eye candy than lethal partner. Although the vampire-wi I bought this in Kindle format based on Amazon's recommendation.

I do like how the guns run out of ammo, the tiger has a finite amount of grenades and he remembers to reload his guns. I also like that no matter how bad ass of a kitty is, he is still vulnerable and he knows it. Excellent military action and so far a decent start of a space opera series. I know we are not supposed to judge a book by its cover, but this cover is ok - the cover of the next book is absolutely atrocious. About the only thing I really hate in this book is the weretiger's continuous use of 'affirmative' and 'confirmed' for saying yes. It sounds wooden and awkward, and you would think that after getting to know each other that he would be less formal with the witch.

    As a big fan of the Star Justice series from before its launch i was expecting great things, not sure if this works as well in audio as it does in the book form. With characters larger than life in Adam and Eve your imagination does a better job than reality does sometimes, So it is with this , although this is by no means a loss it doesn't match up to the high standards that you find in the written book.

Eric Bryan Moore does well with Adam although i always assumed a different sounding voice and he has skills when it comes to performing the female voices needed, and an excellent job with other characters but it does affect my enjoyment of the listening. I shall try the 2nd in the series and see as you sometimes find that audibles take a while to get used to and it take a settling period to adjust. There is the usual humour and character moments that shine however so its still a good listen however. For such a flagship series i had hoped that this would wow me more, although it wouldn't put me off further audible narrations from Eric Bryan Moore at this stage.

    Not too shabby. The book had a very unrelenting pace. In a sense, it really felt like the pilot episode for a brand new show. Though the ending resolved some of the conflicts raised, larger conflicts are hinted at and even outrightly pointed at, which are obviously going to be resolved later on. As for writing, the main character was decently developed and I felt I understood him pretty solidly.

Eve was developed slightly, but she still remains a bit of a mystery (and I think this is on purpose, so I will give Earle some credit for narrative strategy). Z, on the other hand, is actually a pretty fascinating character. I'm curious to see how she will develop, but I was kind of enjoying her by the end of the book. The worldview was definitely secular and humanistic. I would not recommend this for anyone below High School age, and I would tend towards juniors and seniors in that group. This more 'adult' rating is mainly due to the language, pretty graphic descriptions of violence, and sexual 'situations' - though the latter never really get too explicit. Always good to be aware of what you're getting into.

    Really, two genetically modified butt-kicking heroes named Adam and Eve? Author tends to describe all the beautiful women and how "hot" they are about every 3 pages. Also to much Bachelor type drama over relationships among all the supremely beautiful women Adam is somehow collecting.

I don't know who many times you can describe a slug ripping someone in half or blowing someone's head off without it becoming a bit tedious. Also Adam tends to not think stuff out (or think much at all above the waist) and ends up screwing stuff up many times. Luckily all the beautiful women are smart and make up for Adam's lack of brains. Entertaining but a grind sometimes.

    I got this via the Kindle lending library and I'm glad I didn't pay anything for it. I like milsf when done right. I don't mind the occasional bits of gore, or battle scenes when they serve a purpose. I have no objection to genetic experimentation producing a were-tiger with a healing factor that approaches Wolverine levels (like, close to the end, he has an arm hanging by some tendons and his companions jam it back into the remains of the socket and he's feeling better 15 minutes later) but for I got this via the Kindle lending library and I'm glad I didn't pay anything for it.

Keep in mind, I did not have high hopes going into this, and it still managed to disappoint. Both the writing and the characters are wooden, and the characterization ranges from two-dimensional to non-existent. The main virtue is that it's also extremely short.

    DNF - I was very interested in this story and the concept behind it, but I couldn't progress beyond the first major scene. I basically metaphorically threw the book across the room when the POV character (view spoiler)[shoots his peers in the head instead of letting the vampire free them. I mean, he'd already realized that it could be done, and discussed how to do it with the vampire. But when he had the chance to get her close enough to make it happen, he shot them in cold blood instead (hide s DNF - I was very interested in this story and the concept behind it, but I couldn't progress beyond the first major scene.

I don't know if the author meant to portray this as being something he had no choice over, or if the author simply wanted to take the easier (and less interesting) path on their story. Either way, I lost all interest immediately.

    A very interesting and action packed opening book to what might become a great series given time. There isn't all that much to say because it was a fairly short book, which is part of the reason it didn't get a 5 star rating from me. It wasn't very original and it had very little world building. Character growth: nope none of that either. If I am tbh it didn't let you know very much about the characters, besides the basic back story.

It was way too short for my liking and the only saving grace was how very action packed it was. There was a lot of just have faith in the MC's and little to no logic in things. Some of the things they did was pure stupidity and I had a hard time accepting those things.

    I just finished the 6 books currently out...This book kept popping up on Amazon as something I should buy. I love sci fi, be it military, adventure or space opera. But I kept looking away, I thought...a Tiger space marine? Eh, I don't care for that. Till I decided to give it a chance. Next thing I know I was on book #4 and it was 7am.

Great characters, well written action and the world the author has created is only getting larger and characters each have their own purpose and reason for joining the team. Don't go in expecting something like the Forever War, but its solid good fun. I seriously need to catch up on sleep though, this series has ruined my week...In a good way.

    A self-proclaimed paranormal space-opera.... AND SPOLERS. A ridiculous prose in which a genetically engineered man/tiger, enslaved is sent into battle under threat death to retrieve a "live specimen", which ends up being a vampire with telepathic and telekinetic powers, among other things. Based simply on the description, I chuckled as I added it to my To Read shelf, in the back of my mind admitting to myself that I'll probably never actually read it.

Earle manages to make all this nonsense, along with politically and corporate dark dealings, work well together in a cohesive story that is action packed, funny, and didn't make me feel stupid for listening. And impreeive feat.

    I am one I guess very few readers these days object to crude language. Well, I am one of the few. I discovered I cannot put the objectionable words in a review or Amazon will deny my review. It has happened. Censor my review but not the book? Hmmm. I already cancelled my Kindle Unlimited subscription because so many books had that kind of language (the kind I cannot quote here) but I bought this one! Grrrr.

Can you say 'hypocrisy'?

    I'd actually give this a 3.5. I want to give it more but I just can't. I loved it, and I'm reading the next one, but it's a predictable, over-the-top action film in book form. It's a fantasy book wearing the clothing of a sci-fi story. It's so bad, but shame isn't enough to dampen my enjoyment. Have you ever read the Barsoom series(John Carter on Mars)? This is the modern day version of that kind of book. I loved John Carter. There are plot holes, over-the-top action scenes, and tropes everywher I'd actually give this a 3.5.

    Wow, is this the same author as Lion's Quest? O_o I don't get it, the quality of writing is just so much worse here. The world he's created is decent, but the characters are all really flat and the story line is extremely simplistic. The book comes across like a very early writing exercise he decided to polish up a little and publish. Weirdly, it also comes across a bit fetishistic. I really like is Lion's Quest books so I might give Space Witch a shot, but I'd hate to have this series spoil my Wow, is this the same author as Lion's Quest?
