    2. There are many governments who would like to protect their hold on the world s oil trade and their country s economy But which ones will put everything on the line to achieve this Dave Edlund s newest book, Crossing Savage, offers 438 pages of action and adventure, centered around the themes of good verses evil, sacrifice and reaping what you sow The book s plot follows the assassinations of leading alternative energy researchers, many of whom are nearing breakthroughs in the field of abiogenic [...]

I loved this book It had a great mix of action, intrigue, and science The geo political intrigue had me wondering what if The characters we people I could care about, which made the story even compelling The science was fascinating and written in a way that this non scientist could understand I found myself wanting to know about the real science behind the book The action was outstanding I didn t want to put the book down because I anxiously wanted to know what was going to happen next.I can t [...]


    6. Wow I love so many aspects of this book that make it personal for me, such as where it s set and how close to my home the author is, etc but what I really love is the story The story line is not only exciting, but it s one that makes you think about the possibilities There is nothing like an engaging story that lets you dive in with both feet and wonder what could really happen if certain aspects of the energy market changed this is that book Do Not Miss this book it will keep you holding on th [...]


    7. I won this book for free from first reads.I thought this book was intense and left you thinking I was thrilled to get my hands on a copy and highly recommend reading it


    8. This is a First Reads Review.I ll admit that this isn t my traditional genre I entered the contest largely because I wanted to add to this genre in my classroom and the premise looked interesting This book is about the issue of alternative energy and the threat it poses to OPEC In the book, Peter Savage and his friend, Jim try to protect Savage s father who becomes the target of terrorists for his work on abiogenic oil production.I thought the book was pretty good overall The author does a good [...]


    9. Dave Edlund s debut novel, Crossing Savage, is a must read political thriller As old cold war tensions once again escalate and as the OPEC nations continue their stranglehold over gas prices, Edlund s novel takes on a modern relevance that chillingly parallels today s current events.The novel flowed flawlessly to the end, and kept the reader wanting page after page Plus, Edlund piqued my curiosity with the possibility of biochemically manufacturing oil instead of drilling for it in the ground T [...]


    10. An action packed adventure ripped from the headlines Crossing Savage reads chillingly close to reality as the author teases us with the possibility of energy independences and how it plays into the balance of world power With Russia s recent takeover of Crimea, the nation s villainous role in Crossing Savage feels terrifyingly plausible As an expert in alternative energy, the author has taken great lengths to make the science in the book believable and easy to understand If you re looking for an [...]


    11. I loved this The action happened at a steady, intense pace and the characters are alive with personalities It s one of those books that make you frown when you realize you only have twenty or so pages left I don t know how the author could possibly improve upon this quality writing I am anxious to read his other books.


    12. I just finished this, and have been so busy with so many other things, ahh life full of responsibilities and commitments I really really enjoyed it It was very well put together story wise, I do not want to give anything that happens away, I hate spoilers So I will just say it is definitely worth taking a look at Very much so enjoyed having this to look forward to cozying up with.


    13. Buckle up for roller coaster action as Peter Savage gets plunged into a whirlpool of covert ops when his family become pawns in an international race for power and greed inflamed by the drive for alternative fuel sources With plenty of plot twists and turns to keep you guessing, Crossing Savage is a great read


    14. I m only a couple of chapters in, but so far I m enjoying this book I love a book that has a ton of action from the first chapter It makes me want to keep reading.


    15. This is an intelligent premise about our modern world and the need for oil to fuel our energy needs The idea that there is an alternate form of energy just waiting to be discovered, is interesting, and could possibly apply to the electric car, to Wind, or even Solar Certainly we have seen how these industries and even public transportation have been discredited and thwarted to serve the interests of the petroleum kings of the world and those who profit from the status quo So once that premise is [...]


    16. With so much talk these days of energy independence, has anyone really thought about what would happen if major countries achieved it Dave Edlund has, and in Crossing Savage he takes readers around the globe to show us the lengths to which some people will go to keep the US and other nations from lessening their need for foreign oil Crossing Savage is not only un put down able, it ll make you think.You can listen to my conversation with Dave at Anne s Book Club.


    17. Alternate energy is a topic that interests me on many levels It s in the news constantly with countries and regions around the world wanting to control oil, limit consumption or withhold reserves and refuse to finance reliable alternative energy options I enjoyed Dave Edlund s new book, Crossing Savage, because of the plausibility in his thriller it reads less like fiction and like a chilling echo of world events Plus, the author is a leading expert in alternative energy, so I feel like he has [...]


    18. When abiogenic scientists start dying in numbers worldwide, the U S government agency SGIT, takes notice The team suspects that professors Savage and Sato may be in danger too, and decides to protect them As the plot unfolds, Professor Savage s son, Peter, is enlisted to help the operatives Danger and suspense lurk around every corner, as tensions rise President Taylor invokes operation Checkmate as a means to the end but wait, there s Dave Edlund does a masterful job, equal to that of Stephen [...]


    19. The book was fast moving and interesting from beginning to end I really enjoyed Peter Savage, the main character I can t wait for in the series to see how he develops I was afraid the book would read a little too technical, but the mix of science and action were just right Kept me turning pages Highly recommend


    20. A wonderfully written book, which had me hooked from the beginning Dave Edlund has put together a very cleaver story, with a diverse range of characters and an edgy plot I started reading this series with 4 and 5, and enjoyed them so much, I was then pretty keen to read book 1 I m glad I did, as this was a thoroughly entertaining novel There s always something happening in the story, and it s probably why it didn t take me long to get to the end.When Peter Savage s friend Jim Nicolaou turns up a [...]



    21. Included in a box set Peter Savage Novels 1 4A thriller, with elements of espionage and covert ops as well as some tantalising science, which provides the springboard for the plot Introduces Peter Savage, a widower engineer inventor is the closest thing to a profession but he s a successful one his father Ian, a geologist professor emeritus his children are mentioned but only one makes an appearance his old school friend, former SEAL and now part of a distinctly covert ops group A good, if long, [...]


    22. I typically don t read political thrillers very often, but I have to say I really enjoyed this book a lot These characters at least to me are very relate able and are put together very well The plot I really enjoyed, it just grabbed me from the beginning and I just dug into the story and didn t let go I could really see something like this story actually happening in real life Overall just a very well put together story, I enjoyed it Can t wait to read the other books in this series.I got this b [...]


    23. An exciting techno thriller with some sci fi elements.A conspiracy of oil producing nations is killing off scientists that believe they can cheaply make artificial petroleum One of those scientists has a son who has developed a handheld rail gun This is the weapon the bad guys had in the movie Eraser with Arnold Schwarzenegger From there, it s mostly car chases and shoot outs There s some pretty good action, but it isn t quite up to the caliber of, say Vince Flynn The set up is good, and I enjoy [...]


    24. The first adventures of a great new character, Peter Savage Action man par excellence, but much than that This is great entertainment with an eye on the planet Someone with than just the heat of the moment, and there s plenty of that, going for them The action scenes are first class, the plot keeps you grabbing for the next page, the dialogue is spot on, and the premise engrossing Well done Mr Edlund


    25. Good action but a little too talky for me Main characters are interesting but kind of 2 dimensional to make me care too much Liked the scenes on the island off Alaska, but the rest was same ole, same ole.


    26. Entertaining Non stop story.Enjoyable but the activity between the two main characters seemed to implausible to accept Was leaning towards a 4 but this kept me from it It is a good topic and interesting Don t shy away from it based on this rating alone.
