Leap (Breakthrough #2) Reviews
Leap is book two in the Breakthrough series. I enjoyed the first book immensely, finding it had just the right amounts of action, science and science fiction to keep me interested until the end. Because I was not ready to party with the main characters and the storyline, I jumped immediately onto book two.
To tell the truth, Leap is just as compelling as book one, but there were a few scenes I found a bit less realistic, and I'm not even referring to the science fiction parts of the book. Mostly ...more
I can't wait for the next one
Having just finished this thrilling book that combined military, scientific, and science fiction so seamlessly I now must wait a month to see the third book in this series. I can't wait! I'm definitely addicted to this author and so glad I found him. Go Michael!!!!
This second book in the series was as interesting as the first book, and I really enjoyed the surprising twisty-turns. Am excited to continue with book #3, but will take a little break with a couple of diversion books first, so I don't get burnt out with the series.
There is scattered cursing in both books, including religious swears, no "F" bombs, however.
In Breakthrough Michael Grumley created a few characters I really liked, however, I felt he took too many liberties with 1) pushing the sci-fi envelop too far for me, and 2) leaving too many cliff hangers, thus basically making the reader buy the next book in the series. Well, I bought the next book, Leap. I still liked the characters and the new antagonists - but see points 1 and 2 above...thus my 2 star rating.
Slight Spoiler Alert:
Regarding point 1, pushing the sci-fi believability factor too ...more
Clay, John Clay
Move over, James Bond, there's a new hero in town! I have just finished reading Breakthrough and Leap by Michael C. Grumble. These books are fascinating. The characters are real, emotional, caring, truly bringing life to the pages. Once I started reading book one, I could not stop. The energy just flowed from the pages, the action was very fast paced. I would enjoy reading more books about these same characters.

One word comes to mind: "Wow!"
My only regret in reading this book, is that I didn't re-read "Breakthrough" prior to reading this book. The author has shown, once again, that he has mastered his genre. The character development was very well done and the story was full of page-turning suspense. I did find a few typos, but they took nothing from the story. If you enjoy a combination of suspense, science, philosophy and science fiction, this is your book!
Popcorn-Unterhaltung & ein wenig Science to go!
Der Science Thriller In der Tiefe ist der zweite Band der Breakthrough-Trilogie von Michael Grumley. Im ersten Band gelang es einer Forschergruppe mit Hilfe des Interspecies-Kommunikationssystems „ISIS“ erstmals mit Delfinen zu kommunizieren, was die Aufmerksamkeit des Militär auf sich zog. Band 1: Breakthrough war ein hollywoodreifes Action-Spektakel mit wissenschaftlicher Note, das ihr vor dem Beginn von Band 2 lesen solltet.
Blah. Closer to 2.5 because it's somewhat unique and well written, but the story and characters are just kind of there.
