After the suspicious death of his family, former Air Force Captain Kirk Cule discovers hidden journals and the covert world of his father; a good man drawn into a power struggle that could lead to worldwide nuclear annihilation. Kirk enters the murky world of a rogue CIA Special Actions Group Chief, an exceptional madman named Donner Bly, his deranged obedient associate, and foreign entities, as they race to unearth and launch the one remaining nuclear-tipped Titan Inter-continental Ballistic Missile. All have different motives....all have different goals. But who will succeed as they battle to possess The Last of the Titans.
Oooh! Classic battle of anti-hero and hero emerges as the plot is developed into a thriller that is filled with fun backstories. The book starts off a bit boring with long winded paragraphs and an ominous threat from the CIA. I kinda liked it. The book started to get a bit stagnated especially if you have a low attention span. Then it started to heated up a bit like a slow boil. The tea kettle sure did whistle though and the ending was real well not predictable unless you are a master reader.
4/5 Good solid plot, character development, and the whole bag of goodies just the book takes a bit to get to a nice place. Really recommend it if your into military.

With wars, famines, and other natural disasters it looks like robots are to be the future. If there is anyway to survive in a hostile environment then using robots to do highly dangerous things like infilatrating an enemy position robots are the way to go. Thankfully schools have been training teens like at my school to make and use robots. There's so many possibilities with robots, you can make a robot that dances, you can make a robot that can drive around and much, and so much more! We were given a robo kit with the program and we get to keep all the parts which I'm really happy about so I can build robots on my own at home! It only cost about $200 to enter which is cheap if the future is at stake. Fairly good price and well worth the money!
A great place to buy a robotic kit would be at say your local RadioShack, hobby store, or online at a retailer like Amazon.
If your school is offering a Robotics Program I recommend you to join! It is well worth the money and it's very fun and you will learn so much.
