    I had forgotten how much I was enjoying this series as I set it aside a while back Recently a prequel was released by the author showing us how Repairman Jack came about and the sadist ended said book in a cliffhanger That book reminded me and I went back to my shelves and pulled the paperback where I d fet off down That was what I typed originallyI have no idea what I meant to type That is one doozy of a typo I meant to type that I picked up the series where I d left off I l I had forgotten how much I was enjoying this series as I set it aside a while back Recently a prequel was released by the author showing us how Repairman Jack came about and the sadist ended said book in a cliffhanger That book reminded me and I went back to my shelves and pulled the paperback where I d fet off down That was what I typed originallyI have no idea what I meant to type That is one doozy of a typo I meant to type that I picked up the series where I d left off I leave the typo to show what can happen when a self taught typist tries to type quickly And I m glad I did Here Jack s past pops up to sort of drag him back in and his carefully crafted anonymity is threatened He unwillingly gets drawn farther into the apparently supernatural war or conflict or invasion.or invasions that seem to be horning into his life The story here snatched me up and dragged me in quickly As I don t often have as much time as I d like to actually sit and read print it was extremely frustrating to find I couldn t get back to it as often as I d like.Told as a complete story yet still leading deeper into the morass that Jack s life has become this is another good read.On another tack I also find Jack s view of life and the view of those around him interesting and enjoy that part of the books also So, good read, interesting read, fairly fresh take on the ideas behind the books I like themI like this one.5 stars, recommended, enjoy

    I love Repairman Jack If there was such a person in this world, you d really want to have him on your side In the world of fantasy, horror and often verging into pulp, this entire series is just fun.In this installment, Jack, who prefers to remain anonymous, has his work cut out for him After an incident on the subway, a New York tabloid reporter wants to find him and draw him out of hiding This thread continues throughout the book and ultimately is interwoven with the main story in which I love Repairman Jack If there was such a person in this world, you d really want to have him on your side In the world of fantasy, horror and often verging into pulp, this entire series is just fun.In this installment, Jack, who prefers to remain anonymous, has his work cut out for him After an incident on the subway, a New York tabloid reporter wants to find him and draw him out of hiding This thread continues throughout the book and ultimately is interwoven with the main story in which Jack s new client turns out to be his long estranged sister Without much detail, Jack is drawn into the world of a strange group of people, all of whom are patients of a certain doctor whose treatment has altered their brains I won t say anysuffice it to say that Jack is under a deadline to stop a nefarious plot is there really any other kind in the sci fi, horror world and you can feel the tension heating up as the time grows nearer and Jack must once again save the world.Hosts is the type of book that you absolutely have to read as escape fiction, or at least just for the sheer fun of it all Once you start it, it s hard to put down and trust me, you ll get through it quickly because it s a page turner.My advice on reading the Repairman Jack series start from the beginning and do not miss a single one in order who likes a bit of horror fiction with some dark humor would like these books

    In this extremely enjoyable novel, Wilson continues expanding on the life of Repairman Jack and by extension the Adversary Cycle universe We pick up on Jack s life about a year after ALL THE RAGE at the same time though Wilson brings Jack s life into the present There are small clues dropped throughout the story that point at Jack now living in the 2000s instead of the 1980s Anyway this story has Jack by an act of weird synchronicity finding his sister who he hasn t talked to in years The s In this extremely enjoyable novel, Wilson continues expanding on the life of Repairman Jack and by extension the Adversary Cycle universe We pick up on Jack s life about a year after ALL THE RAGE at the same time though Wilson brings Jack s life into the present There are small clues dropped throughout the story that point at Jack now living in the 2000s instead of the 1980s Anyway this story has Jack by an act of weird synchronicity finding his sister who he hasn t talked to in years The sister pulls Jack into an adventure that ends up tying into previous books and future books.As is usual for Wilson, he does a fabulous job at writing a story that is engrossing with characters that are interesting and includes enough adventure and suspense to keep you on the edge of your seat This time the story does not involve Gia or Vicky very much it would have been nice to seeof them but they didn t fit into the story line The one thing that I didn t like that much was near the end when Jack has revealed to him that he is an important person in the fight against the Adversary I know that Wilson is playing into the already written Adversary Cycle finale but it was a bit too contrived it s like the moment during a movie when you just KNOW that there are going to be lots of sequels Same thing It s good because I love his writing and the character The moment was just over dramatized

    In the fifth of sixteen Repairman Jack novels, a strange Russian lady with a large white dog appears at Jack s sickbed and tells him that he, and he alone, must stop a virus that the Adversary of

Jack s sickbed and tells him that he, and he alone, must stop a virus that the Adversary of all mankind has unleashed to create war, hate, death, fear, pain, and destruction Here is a snippet of their conversation Stop virus before it spreads, or all you love will perish She turned and headed for the bedroom door I leave you now Jack felt the temperature drop No chills He pulled the covers back over him Lady, who are you She and her big white dog stopped at the door and looked at him I am your mother Nonplussed, Jack struggled for a reply She was nothing like his mother Finally he resorted to a simple statement of fact My mother s dead She was your birth mother, she said I am your other mother If that doesn t qualify as creepy, the statute should be repealed And this is only one third of the way through a series of thrillers that get weirder and scarier with each installment The Adversary bit suggests that this book also features a crossover with the same author s six book Adversary Cycle Whether you call it the Adversary or the Otherness, or whatever you choose to call it, it s a force from outside our reality whose intentions toward mankind are not good Already in less than a year Jack s time , it has tried to break into the world four different ways vicious demons, diabolical machines, rips in the fabric of the universe, and most recently a drug that heightens aggression Now it s found another way turning an experimental cancer cure into a mutation that could end human life as we know it.It isn t unusual for Jack s most serious cases to endanger the people he cares about the most He s gotten pretty well mauled himself, a few times But his work gets harder than ever when a young journalist witnesses him saving a subway carful of passengers from a mass murderer Not only does the publicity threaten to blow his cover no disaster could be worse for a man whose lifestyle is based on flying below the government s radar but it also attracts the attention of a pair of professional bombers who have a grudge against Jack And it s just when his invisibility cloak is slipping that he gets a new fix it job that hits closer to home than most For his new client, referred to him by the mysterious lady with dog, is none other than Jack s estranged sister Kate.Kate has her own closet complete with skeletons One of them is a lesbian lover whose personality suddenly changed after a life saving cancer treatment Kate worries that Jeanette has become involved in a cult But it s actually much worse than that All the members of this supposed cult were subjects in the same clinical trial Somehow their miracle cure has mutated into a virus that has replaced their individual identities with a single, shared mind Driven by the survival instincts of a sentient virus, they are only a few mutations away from being ready to spread their Unity to an unsuspecting world From a virus s point of view, the result will be a paradise on earth Other than that, it looks like the end of human civilization.While Jack dodges the enquiring mind of his own personal Jimmy Olsen and the deathtraps set by a couple of pyrotechnic goons, he and Kate find themselves fighting an enemy that thanks to Jeanette and her buddies is now in their blood too Kate feels herself gradually losing control over her own thoughts and actions Jack becomes deathly ill, helpless and weak And though the Russian lady assures him that he is the one who can stop the virus, it s hard to figure how he can do this People who can act in concert, sharing the same mind, can be amazingly dangerous enemies They know Jack is a threat to them They have proven willing and able to kill whoever stands in their way And he knows that if he doesn t stop them before the virus goes airborne, all will be lost.Truly, fixing this is going to be a big job It s going to hurt Jackthan any case he has worked so far Butimportantly, it poses the big Why me question in a way that he can no longer ignore For the first time, Jack begins to realize that his repeated brushes with the Otherness arethan a case of serendipity He learns that he has been recruited as a warrior to fight an Adversary he does not understand, and he has no choice in this It s not going to sit easy with a guy who values his own freedom including the right to bear arms as much as his own life But he has elevennovel length adventures to learn to accept it The next Repairman Jack book is The Haunted Air

    Reading the Repairman Jack series is starting to remind me of listening to old 1930s radio serials when I was a kid Whether it s Dick Tracy unraveling the Mystery of the Pharaoh s Scarab or The Shadow trying to stop a notorious arsonist, Wilson definitely draws much inspiration from the radio heroes of yesteryear in the construction of his bite size thrillers and his reluctant hero, Jack.In Hosts, Jack s conflict against the inter dimensional Otherness gets personal when his estranged sister co Reading the Repairman Jack series is starting to remind me of listening to old 1930s radio serials when I was a kid Whether it s Dick Tracy unraveling the Mystery of the Pharaoh s Scarab or The Shadow trying to stop a notorious arsonist, Wilson definitely draws much inspiration from the radio heroes of yesteryear in the construction of his bite size thrillers and his reluctant hero, Jack.In Hosts, Jack s conflict against the inter dimensional Otherness gets personal when his estranged sister contacts him out of the blue for help in freeing her girlfriend from a creepy cult Of course when Jack is involved things are never as cut and dry as a mere cult Before he knows it, Jack is fighting off an especially malicious virus doing what viruses do best spread their contagion as far and wide as possible and trying to keep his family out of the increasingly dangerous crossfire Wilson is setting Jack up for some big events further down the line but the story in this one suffers from looking ahead too much It s as though Wilson wasinterested in framing events for the series climax than in crafting a truly captivating story There were some fun additions to Jack s rather familiar bag of tricks and some rather chilling flash forwards of a strife filled future in which the contagion has run rampant, but all in all this book seemed like a build up for something farther down the road
