THE PLAGUE WARS
Not all plagues kill. But there are those with much to lose from the advancement of the human race, and there is nothing more dangerous to the hidden powers of the world than a plague with the ability to improve Mankind through simple human contact. When veteran combat lifesaver Daniel Markis finds a mystery woman with armed invaders in his home and it all goes sideways, he turns to his brothers in arms to fight back. On the run from the shadowy Company, soon he finds himself in a war for possession of a genetic engineering puzzle that threatens the stability of the world. But who is behind it all - and are they even human?

The Eden Plague is very well written and a great sci-fi story. I loved the plot and characters. I did find a problem at about 30% into the kindle file, there's a section that is repeated and needs to be removed. It made things very confusing for a few moments. I loved the ending, but I did giggle at the very last sentence. That's just how I feel about that particular concept and is no reflection on the story. I look forward to reading Reaper's Run, the next book in the series. I wouldn't hesitate to read more books by David VanDyke. Thank you, David, for sending me this book in return for an honest review, I loved it.
This book is a non-stop action thriller, one you won't want to put down. Fans of military action or military SF might think of Tom Clancy, Michael Crichton, and John Ringo -- it's in that class all the way. It's set in today's world with today's cutting-edge technology, but with a twist of the "it could be happening right now" variety that will fundamentally change our world. Vandyke creates believable, human characters in a credible setting and tells their story in a way that makes you keep turning the pages. This is a complete book, with the primary story action resolved in the end, but it is obviously the lead in for a series and the author gives you a "teaser" for the next book as a epilogue at the end. I don't like "cliffhangers" but this didn't fell like one (despite the fact that it made me really want to read the next book). Kudos to David Vandyke for a great story.
By MommaG on April 25, 2013 The Eden Plague: Book 1 (Plague Wars) by David VanDyke David VanDyke adds quite a twist to a biological warfare plotline in his novel the Eden Plague. The story becomes more complex when motives of villains and heroes begin the blur as we discover more about the biological agent. Are the good intentions of the protagonists enough to justify their actions? Are the governmental agents only motivated by hunger for money and power or are they patriots responding to perceived terror threats? In writing the story in such a way that the reader questions characters’ principles as the plot unfolds, VanDyke reminds us that issues of politics and war are not always clear cut with easy answers. This militaristic Science Fiction is set in a present day kind of timeline offering enjoyable banter in the character dialogue as well as including smart, strong female characters.
