The Eye of Shiva review: Alex Lukeman

The Eye of Shiva

by Alex Lukeman

Rating: 4 Star

"The Eye of Shiva" is number 8 of a series of books focusing on a secret US anti-terrorist team called "The Project" by Alex Lukeman.

The story begins with a raid on a terrorist camp in the Philippines where an ancient gold coin is found. From there, the plot rapidly expands before focusing on a plot to start a nuclear war between India and Pakistan.

The project team is led by Elizabeth Harker and consists of Nick, Ronnie, Lamont, and Selena who each have their own back stories that have obviously been shaped over the previous 7 novels.

This was the first Alex Lukeman book that I've ever read, so I'd recommend starting at book #1 "White Jade" if you're going to work through this series .

This was a great action-packed novel with several twists and turns. Of course, being a series novel there were some items left open at the end but that's all part of the fun.

A recommended action-thriller page turner.
