Book cover

Final Weapon is a gripping science fiction novel written by Everett B. Cole, which takes the reader on an incredible journey across the vastness of space. Set in a future where interstellar travel is a reality, the story follows a group of scientists who stumble upon an extraordinarily powerful weapon, capable of unimaginable destruction.

From the very beginning, Cole's writing captivates the reader's attention, grabbing hold and refusing to let go. The plot moves at a breakneck pace, filled with suspenseful twists and turns that keep the reader on the edge of their seat. The author's ability to create tension and anticipation is truly remarkable, making it nearly impossible to put the book down.

One of the most impressive aspects of Final Weapon is the depth of its characters. Cole brings them to life with subtle nuances and flaws, making them relatable and believable. Each character has their own distinct voice and personality, adding an extra layer of depth to the story. It's easy to become emotionally invested in their journey and root for their success, making the reading experience all the more rewarding.

Furthermore, Cole's world-building skills are exceptional. He effortlessly transports the reader to a future filled with advanced technology and complex political landscapes. The attention to detail in describing the futuristic settings and technological advancements is outstanding, making it easy to envision and immerse oneself in this vivid world.

However, while Final Weapon offers an exciting and fast-paced plot, it may fall short in providing a truly thought-provoking narrative. The exploration of ethical dilemmas and the consequences of the weapon are somewhat surface-level, leaving potential for deeper philosophical discussions untapped. Nevertheless, this doesn't detract significantly from the overall enjoyment of the novel.

In conclusion, Final Weapon is an enthralling science fiction novel that combines fast-paced action, multi-dimensional characters, and an ambitious futuristic setting. Everett B. Cole's writing style and storytelling prowess keep readers hooked from beginning to end. Fans of the genre will find themselves thoroughly entertained and eager to explore more of Cole's works.

He could remember when that ruin had been a support for one of the world's great bridges.

Now, a crumbling symbol of the past, it stubbornly resisted the attacks of the weather, as it had once resisted the far more powerful blasts of explosives. Obstinately, it pointed its rusty length skyward, to remind the observer of bygone conflict and more.

Together with the tangled cables, dimly seen in the shoal water, the line of wreckage in the channel, and the weed covered strip of torn concrete which led through the hills, it testified to the arrival of the air age. Bridges, highways, and harbors alike had passed their day of usefulness.

Not far from the ruined bridge support, Morely could see the huge, well maintained intake of one of the chemical extraction plants... Continue reading book >>
