    Great Stuff here

    You like Clive? Clancy? if you do then you will LOVE Blackwood. GREAT book. It had me hooked from the beginning. Yes there were lull points but the detail he went into to explain the story didn't leave you scratching your heads like Clancy. Great Action, Great Story, Great Book. HIGHLY Recommended!

    Wonderful!

    When it comes to literary entertainment, I have one over-riding criterion: do I get lost in the story and forget about little things like eating and sleeping? This book passes with flying colors! At the risk of sounding cliche, I honestly could not put this book down. I stayed up late reading it and then picked it up first thing in the morning, even before my coffee. But in order for this to occur, the plot and characters all have to be believable. After all, this book is not science fiction or fantasy where you need to suspend belief. Instead, it was very real and Briggs Tanner, although a hero, was also very real. Thank you Mr. Blackwood for your great writing!

    A Real Thriller!!!

    This book is a MUST!! The author has a wonderful way with words and keeps you on the edge. Just when I thought it couldn't get more exciting, it went to another level. Best action book I've read in a long time.

    The End of Enemies is a MUST READ!

    As a wannabe, I was thrilled to read about local writer Grant Blackwood¿s new book, The End of Enemies, in our hometown newspaper. I arrived early for the first noted book signing and was pleasantly surprised when Mr. Blackwood took several minutes to discuss the making of his book. I whizzed through the first two chapters before deciding the autographed paper back was too precious to render dog-eared and immediately placed an Internet order for a second, ¿expendable¿ copy. The End of Enemies is more than just a great story; it is a first novel by a master storyteller. While some have compared the work to James Bond stories, I found Mr. Blackwood¿s vast application of real world knowledge and his ability to spin a complex web and then bring it all neatly together closer to the writing of Tom Clancy. Several chapters into the story¿which switches settings and characters at breakneck speed¿I forced myself to consider whether I truly understood the many pieces/parts. The answer was a resounding YES! The End of Enemies is written so well that it pushes reading speeds to new heights yet loses not a scintilla of comprehension. Though the frequent use of acronyms was a bit confusing at first, I quickly realized the modern world operates within a sea of abbreviations and that to fully spell out each term would inject an unnatural feeling, especially to dialogue. Bottom line: The End of Enemies is a terrific book and I heartily recommend it to all readers (PG13 and above, that is.) Gifted new writers don¿t surface often, and my only fear is that Grant Blackwood¿s talent could easily be overlooked in the light speed flow of new releases ¿ So, read the book and spread the word so that we may enjoy many, many more Grant Blackwood novels!

    An outstanding techno-political thriller....

    ...that is a page turner. Takes a nice spin around the world of spies, political factions, military action, terrorist groups and throws in a world domination madman. This book was an all-round fun read.

    This summer's must read!

    I had the opportunity to read an advanced copy of The End of Enemies. I¿d never read a book of this genre before, and was initially quite intimidated by the scope of the plot. I had nothing to fear. The End of Enemies is a fast-paced adventure with enough twists and turns that kept me turning the pages; even some of the more technical aspects of the book didn¿t slow me down. Threads of the plot weave together to form a tight story from start to finish. No questions are left unanswered, and there are no unnecessary side plots. The dialogue is natural and unforced. There is no gratuitous violence. There are several characters integral to the story, yet each one has a distinctly separate persona. I didn¿t confuse characters since I did not find them cut from the same cloth. Money and power, of course, drive the villains. Yet even the villains have more substance to them than your average bad guy. They aren¿t evil simply to be evil. There are real and believable driving forces beneath their actions. And Briggs Tanner isn¿t a hero simply to be a hero. He does what he does because of an inherently curious nature and a pulsing desire to uncover the truth, even if it puts his own well-being in danger. He¿s not afraid to put himself out there to protect the lives of those he cares about or the lives of innocent people caught in the crossfire. One could say these things about many fictional heroes, but I find Briggs Tanner to be a multi-dimensional character with fears, self-doubt and an intense loyalty to himself and those he knows he can trust. I look forward to learning more about him in upcoming novels. There is much we do not know about Briggs Tanner, and the author has merely scraped the surface. The End of Enemies will entertain you with a gradually escalating plot that puts you in the action. If you read any books this summer, this is the one to read!
