Five-star review on Goodreads, Amazon and Indie Review site:
'Meticulous research is critical to giving the proper atmospheric feel to an historically set novel. In this regard, Half Life is more akin to the Blitz of Poland than the invasion of Russia; that is to say, it is a resounding success. The merging of this unique story with the historical context of the time is seamlessly executed. There are no overwrought 1930’s caricatures here.
'Real explorers, expeditions and scientists have a role to play in the plot, and brilliant tribute is paid to John Buchen—the man credited with inventing the archetypical man on the run. The science that permeates the story is simple, accessible and fascinating. Several of the story’s elements such as cyclotrons and the Sami people sent me straight to Google to learn more.
'With romance, politics and science, there is something in Half Life for everyone to love. If you’re a history buff, you’re going to love this story for the details. And even if you’re not, you’re going to love it just because it is extremely well written and exhilarating.'
