The book’s plot has more holes than a kitchen sieve, but David Leadbeater hopes this will not be noticed as each new page thrusts the reader into a new round of totally unreal action sequences. ‘The Vatican Secret’ is a great read for those simply interested in wild chases and gunfights, unencumbered by detailed plotting, characterization, and a believable story. A thoroughly disappointing book from David Leadbeater.

I wholeheartedly recommend this novel to anyone interested in sci-fi, and also to those interested in contemporary political thrillers who do not mind a sci-fi background to the story.

Orbital is a gripping story of possible warfare in space that forces readers to keep turning the pages. The ending is somewhat forced and rushed, but lovers of this type of genre will hardly notice this, their eyes focused on space.
This book will pull you in from the beginning and will hang on long after the last page is turned.
I would very much like to see Against the Gods of Shadow on the big screen.
It kept me turning the pages, and that’s what matters in the end. Highly recommended for readers who enjoy intrigue and thrills on an international level.
I am sure lots of readers will love the action in The Lost Fleet books, provided they don’t think too much about the background assumptions.
The best part is that the prose is engaging and crisp without being overly technical, making ‘Legitimate Power’ an easy read. Highly recommended!
