The Ward (The Advent Trilogy book 1) by Terry Schott

This is the first book in Terry Schott’s new series, The Advent Trilogy.

Alex Wolfson. Legendary titan of business and industry around the globe. Said to possess a net worth greater than the twenty wealthiest countries in the world. It is rumoured that his control over world leaders and governments is absolute. An icon of his age, a name known to all. Yet no one has ever seen his face, or heard his voice.

I’m a big fan of Terry Schott’s works and writing style and this book was no different. It has the same feel as his ‘The Game Is Life’ series.

This book was great. It moved at a good pace and I liked the characters and the plot. There was a good amount of character development within the development of the plot as well.

It follows a few characters working for Alex Wolfson and even some working against him. They were all good and contributed to the story well. Ultimately, Alex is the main character in the story. He is incredibly mysterious and sly. Luckily, many answers were answered at the end

I would say, as with most of Terry Schott’s books, that it doesn’t always make 100% sense until the end. The story is great, but as you progress through, it can leave you thinking as to where is this heading, and then right at the end, all is revealed before ending on a bit of a cliffhanger. It works well and does leave you wanting to read more.

I would definitely recommend this series, especially if you have read and liked ‘The Game is Life’ series. If you have never read it or even heard, I would still recommend giving it a go. The writing style and storytelling is just great. It leaves you wanting to know more at the end. I’m really looking forward to the next one in the series.

My rating: 5/5*
