PSYCHIC WARRIOR: PROJECT AURA
Dell, Aug 2001, 5.99, 320 pp.
Sergeant Major Jimmy Dalton has been with the military during the bad (Viet Nam War), the Good (Reagan and Bush I administrations), and the ugly (Carter). Over the years, he has fought heated battles and psychic wars. However, he has just faced his most difficult combat ever in the mountains of Colorado: saying goodbye to his now deceased beloved wife.
Dalton realizes he has no time to really mourn because his country needs him once again. The psychic warrior learns he must battle on a virtual plane the deadly Priory. This group of psychics has combined forces with their goal being a world oligopoly controlled by them. Only Dalton and his team stand in their way, but his side has a mole ready to sell them out to the enemy.
PSYCHIC WARRIOR: PROJECT AURA, the sequel to PSYCHIC WARRIOR, is an exciting military science fiction thriller that takes war onto a totally different plane. The story line is exciting as the virtual war heats up around the globe and governments are as criminal and cold as the cabal is. However, with the exception of Dalton and his memories of his wife, the rest of the cast, especially the Priory members, seems more like Manga cartoon characters so readers could not care less what happens to them. Fans who enjoy an in your face (mind) action packed thriller will welcome Robert Doherty's terrific tale.
