    I really enjoyed this book - good action, fun characters, pretty decent plot written by someone who mostly understands modern technology. It was much faster than the first book, which I enjoyed because I'm there for the story not the prose (which was good but just isn't why I read thri...

    Don?t you just hate when you become totally engrossed in a thriller or mystery novel and then it just ends? I always wanna scream, ?NOOOOOO!? and beg the author to make it go on a little longer. That?s probably the lure of stories with continuing characters, whether it?...

    This high tech thriller revolves around Russian interference in the U.S. economy. With today's suspicion of Russian influence on our presidential election, the book's theme is plausible. I enjoyed the first book in the series "The Ascendant" and recommend starting with that book to get...

    The King of Fear is an intelligent, well written fast-paced book. It gets a little squishy here and there but Mr. Chapman writes one helluva good story. It's a nice surprise too because I wasn't overwhelmed with Mr. Chapman's first book The Ascendant, but he more than makes up for it h...

    3.5 stars. A fun return to all things Garrett Reilly and Chapman's The Ascendancy. This sequel moves just as fast as the original, and all of your favorite characters from the first book return. It's a quick, and intelligent, read, delving once again into the world of IT warfare. It so...

    PW Starred: An eccentric genius is all that stands between the U.S. and total financial collapse in Chapman?s first-rate sequel to 2014?s The Ascendant. Garrett Reilly, who has a gift for detecting patterns, has put that talent to work in creating the Ascendant project, ?an attem...

    from kalireads.com: When we think terror attack, we think bombs and guns, loud noise and explosions. But in Drew Chapman?s The King of Fear, terror gets a makeover. Something wicked this way comes, and it comes in the form of a single nefarious young man, and he heads directly int...

    Color me surprised. This was damn good. Resistant at first, not enticed by some of the story & characters, however it dug in. Then, it didn't let go. Occasionally, some parts could've been trimmed, or cut out. Conversations flowed fairly well and character's felt properly motivated...

    This is the second Garrett Reilly techno thriller, following "The Ascendent". It's not really necessary to have read the previous book because any necessary information is recapped in this book. The Ascendent was a secretive government project created to thwart cyber crimes and financi...

    The 2nd in a proposed trilogy. I'm somewhat surprised that while the King of Fear held my attention, it didn't have the same joy of discovery that the Garrett Reilly personality exhibited in book one. Maybe due to too much introspection, drug addiction, and multiple somewhat (Ah-ha) c...

    The King of Fear was a good sequel to The Ascendant. These books present too close to the realm of possibility scenarios for attacks on the U.S. financial system. The story was scary, engaging, entertaining. Recommended if you like this type of thriller novel. ...
