Review: A Different Kind of War

A Different Kind of WarA Different Kind of War by Mary Abshire
My rating: 3 of 5 stars


For centuries, Tristan has procured sacred, cursed, and one-of-a-kind artifacts in an effort to protect mankind. The relics were kept hidden and safe until the Nazis invaded. Not only did they steal the rare objects from his vault, they kidnapped a fellow Knights Templar. If the enemy discovers what the relics can do and that his friend can read the spell books, the war could take a turn for the worse.

Disguised as a British soldier, Tristan joins the Allied Forces to track down his friend and the priceless goods taken from his shop. When soul-sucking spirits attack them, it becomes clear the enemy discovered a way to cast spells. With mankind’s future at stake, Tristan must act quickly before the enemy can raise an army of the dead and spread more evil on Earth.

My Thoughts:

I haven't read any of the Warren Antique books before this. This book seems to be a prequel to the series and really gives the reader a lot of background information. The reader learns how and why Warren Antiques was started.

I love the idea of the artifacts having magical properties, like invisibility. These artifacts seem to be items that would be dangerous in the wrong hands. It kind of foreshadows the dangers that might happen later in the series.

Overall, an interesting start to a series with lots of potential. I have never been a huge fan of the starting book of a series because it has to set the mood for the rest of the series. Usually, the fun begins in the 2nd book but it is always nice to have that background so everything clicks into place. This is very different than what I am used to seeing from this author. I am looking forward to what the author does with this series.
