Sue Frances | NetGalley: I can’t remember reading anything like this before, Cloud Warriors is different and intriguing. Not my normal read but I thoroughly enjoyed it and couldn’t stop reading.
Marie Riley | NetGalley: I thought it was really well written with great characterisation and interaction between the characters and the plot lines. It also nicely raises some moral questions in tying everything together at the end.
Some Previous Reviews:
This is Rob Jung’s first published book and it is a good introduction for the new author. The book is a fast read, has a very interesting theme and incorporates several factors that normally do not appear in most novels…The book is one that will keep the reader glued to the pages until finished. He or she will come to the realization that they have read the first novel of a man with an excellent imagination and be ready for more in the near future. Paul Lane (Librarian).
Wow, I loved this book! Such a unique read…a long lost tribe of blond, blue eyed warriors is discovered in the Peruvian Rainforest by an archeology professor and his pupils. The tribe is on the verge of extinction when the professor is accidentally poisoned; it threatens not only his life but the fate of the tribe. A medium tries to find a remedy and voila..the poison seems to have the ability to triple life expectancy. The pharmaceutical world gets involved and the threat to the tribe and even our world looms large, posing all sorts of ethical questions.
I loved the setting, so exotic. With a hint of the paranormal this story took me out of myself. An adventurous trip, with a good cast of characters.
Highly recommend! – Hannelor Cheney-NetGalley.
A Review of Cloud Warriors on Goodreads:
“Fast-paced… spellbinding… twists and turns… exotic, all are descriptions of a good suspense novel. Cloud Warriors has them all, it really does, but it has more, much more. From the extravagant trappings of upper echelon “Bay Area” environs to the steamy, teeming Peruvian jungle, Rob Jung’s multilayered novel contrasts the incivility of the highest forms of civilization to the honor and civility of the “uncivilized” people of the wilderness. Greedy villains and unlikely heroes fulfill the wishes of mystery novel enthusiasts. But for those of us with a “yearning for learning” the author weaves into this story a healthy heaping of geographical accuracy, historical reality, and scientific factoids spun into the fabric of mystical fantasy. Get Cloud Warriors, you will love it!”
Sharyn from Minnesota:
“I just finished “Cloud Warrior.” It was the perfect read to take along on a vacation! I didn’t want to put it down and I had the time to enjoy it. The characters were very interesting and the plot was unique.
Can’t wait for his next book.”
From a NetGalley Reader:
“An amazingly literate, engaging novel with a unique premise and characters with whom you immediately empathize. I loved the locale, as well as the myths surrounding the Cloud People — a tribe of huge, pale-skinned, blonde, blue-eyed people supposed to have lived deep within the Amazon jungles. The paranormal activity was also presented without going overboard and into completely unrealistic territory. Highly recommended, and definitely not the last book by Mr. Jung that I’ll be reading. Four Stars.“
Diane Donovan, senior reviewer, Midwest Book Reviews, January 2018.
“A story that includes encounters with the spirits, a powerful magical potion that could change the world, and a clash between ancient and modern civilizations that places Professor Castro at the heart of one of the biggest discoveries (and potentially the most dangerous changes) humanity will ever face.
Readers of thrillers that incorporate scientific discovery, deadly special interests and manipulation processes, and confrontations between ethical and moral purposes will relish Cloud Warriors for its fast-paced action and satisfying blend of adventure with a touch of extraordinary powers and intrigue.
Especially recommended for readers who look for the kind of high-octane action, complex plots and powerful characterization mastered by such big names as Michael Crichton, H. Rider Haggard and Philip Kerr.”
