Great Action & Adventure

Although I was aware of the Challenger Storm novels, I didn't resolve to check them out until I encountered Clifton Challenger as a guest star in a Dillon novel (by Derrick Ferguson).

Isle of Blood is a great example of New Pulp Fiction. It utilizes Pulp Fiction tropes such as a team led by an exceptional person (e.g. Doc Savage, the Avenger/Richard Benson), weird science, lost cities, and a touch of the supernatural.

If you're not aware of New Pulp or Old Pulp, for that matter, no worries. Most people aren't. And being aware of these genres is not in the least bit necessary to enjoy this novel.

The Isle of Blood is an exciting action/adventure tale that keeps right on moving until the end.
