has anyone read them? finished the first book 'Cloud Warrior' & i'm halfway through the second book 'First Family' at the moment... turning out to be quite an interesting story. some of the plot is a bit predictable, but im enjoying it thus far. (i havent been able to find a copy of the 2nd or 3rd Dune novels, so ive put that series on hold until i can find them ) - i found books 1 to 5 of the Amtrak Wars series in a second-hand bookstore for $3.00 each. so i thought id give em a go. for those that have never heard of it before, its a series set 900 years after a nuclear holocaust on earth. the story centres around a guy named Steve Brickman who is a pilot for the Amtrak Federation, a post-holocaust military society living in cities 1500 feet below the earths surface. they make raids to 'reclaim the overground' from the Mutes, the misshapen beings who inhabit the surface. battling with massive 600 foot long train-like tanks called Wagon-Trains, and Skyhawks, small one-man fighter planes, against the primitive Mutes, who have been able to develop telekenetic/psychic powers after hundreds of years of genetic mutation. (in a very small nutshell) Lots of character development & an interesting concept has made it a pretty good read so far. anyone else care to tell what they thought of them? or any questions?
