    More than just action & suspense.

    This novel had the best of all genres. The heroes were loveably flawed and the action never stopped! I couldn't put it down. It was more than an action mystery - there was character development that made me want to know more about each person in this novel and root for their demise or their success! I can't wait for their next adventure.

    Such a great debut novel!

    The Monarch is an incredible story of intrigue, espionage, heist, and suspense. I loved this story! The Monarch plays out like a thrilling movie in your head while you read. The writing is well paced and the characters are intriguing. When the story begins, there are many moving parts and places involved with the plot line. At the beginning of this book, I had to focus on the who and where with each new chapter as we bounced around the globe, but once each individual story line was introduced and the players were developed, the intrigue takes off and I was hooked. This story takes places all over the world, in the present day with flashbacks to where this all began so many years ago. We meet Jonathan and Lew, two partners who became best friends after a chance meeting years ago off the beaten path. They worked together as the Robin Hood of art thieves and were so well known. Yet things changed when Jonathan’s daughter came into his life and both men have left the high adrenaline heist world behind. Yet someone, somewhere is creating havoc in their name and they must take charge to stop the murders and find out who is behind it all. The plot line to this book was one of the things that hooked me. It was different from the slew books I have been reading lately, which was a refreshing experience that I am so happy for. The plot was very well written and brilliantly developed. This book is filled with intrigue, drama, and thrilling adventures. I had no idea what was around the next corner and loved the surprise of the story as I read. The writing style was lovely and I cannot wait to see what Jack Soren has in store for the future. One of my favorite parts to see in any book I read is the character development. The characters introduced within this storyline have the potential to be shallow, considering there are so many moving parts and different people introduced all throughout the book. But Jack Soren is able to take a character and provide them with the perfect amount of back story and create people within each plot line that add authenticity and excitement to this tale. Jonathan was a single dad trying to make ends meet and leave his past behind. Lew was a man who has made mistakes but was fighting for what was right. Emily was the starry eyed writer who learned the truth behind her words. The list goes on and on. Each character is foundational to the story and I was beyond pleased with what each person brought to the table. The Monarch is a must read for anyone who enjoys well written thrillers. It was such an awesome story full of adrenaline and excitement. Do not miss this one!

    Good action

    Good read. Good action. Romantic parts didn't always fit. Likes the relationship between the two main characters

    Monarch

    This book was very interesting plot-wise. It held my interest all the way through. It could have used a bit better descriptions of some of the characters because I had trouble picturing them. Finally, there were still a few typos and some mistakes in the text and grammer that, perhaps, a better proof reader would have detected and corrected. Overlooking that, I give it 5 stars. I really liked how it wrapped up all the loose ends.

    Entertaining

    It was a little predictable but entertaining with a good pace. Somewhat similar to a Jack Ryan book.
