    1. My interest in books started when I was nine, the year my baby brother shoved a pretzel down into the back of the television set and my parents didn t bother to get it fixed It was then I discovered science fiction, fantasy and military history Although I d written plays, sketches, poems, lessons, sermons, and during the intervening decades, Running Black became a put up or shut up project The first scenes were born in a Creative Writing class and the story kept spooling out like a runaway movie reel It all ended up as my first novel The sequel Shift Tense is now available, as well as two sections of an ongoing cyberpunk series titled Clar1ty Wars Other titles include a Celtic flavored ghost story The Barrow Lover and the stand alone short story, Sozo.Upcoming projects include Eshu International, a post apocalyptic fantasy, and a novel set in mythical ancient China More information, including sneak peeks and illustrated excerpts, can be found at PatTodoroff A thousand thanks.

    2. Good, if standard cyberpunk novel Eshu International, a small black mercenary force, is contracted to steal some hot nanoware Unfortunately it s than that the nanoware is part of a boy named Gibson, and everything goes all to hell as multiple players try to get him back.The story is a little too straight forwards for it s own good It s essentially a chase novel, and while it s nicely written, you want a bit than it provides Especially with Gibson Having to include all the viewpoints and charac [...]

    3. Running Black was a non stop action adventure at its finest You will be hooked from page one to page the end This will keep you in the story and spit you out the other side feeling used and abused I recommend this as a good read Click Click Click the buy now.

    4. Well, I wrote it Technically, as it is my first book, it s also my worst But you have to write your first before you can start your second Enjoy.

    5. 20 pages into the book I wasn t sure I was going to finish it By the time I was done with the book, I wanted .

    6. I have to first mention the thing which originally attracted me to Running Black was the gorgeous cover art by artist Alejandro Martinez, whose other work you ll find HERE.I m always excited when I see a cool new sci fi novel online or on the bookstore shelf and I ll be the first to admit I sometimes jump at buying a book simply because the cover looks impressive Thankfully, the book s cover wasn t the only thing amazing about Running Black.On his blog, author Patrick Todoroff said Two impulses [...]

    7. Running Black by Patrick Todoroff tells the story of a group of mercenaries from the Eshu International security company The year is 2059 and corporations pretty much run the world They are divided into various geographical zones and have treaties with what governments remain that can actually let them have military control over entire zones.When Eshu International is contracted to steal the latest breakthrough in a stable nanotechnology implant for human use they know something is off The money [...]

    8. Do you want a extremely good cyberpunk tale, with likable characters that act like real people All this in a not so distant future, where Mankind still struggles with its nature and where people still turn to God, searching for what means to be Human.And what about some corporate espionage and intense action If you want to read all of this in one place, look no further than this book After reading some chapters, I couldn t fathom how it was the author s first book he writes like a professional, [...]

    9. The story started promisingly I liked chapter one quite a lot But it turns out that it s not representative of the rest of the story In fact, It s of a prologue Which is unfortunate.While I liked the story, and the idea of clones if not the names of the first three I found that the narrative was extremely difficult to read And I m not really sure why, if I m honest There is one thing that contributed I ll discuss in a moment, but other than that I don t know Maybe it was too jargon y or somethi [...]

    10. A slow first half that wrapped up fairly well at the end, Running Black was the story of a mercenary group who did a job and then became numero uno on Dark Helmet s hit list I bought this book when searching for Shadowrun books and made the mistake that it was somehow associated with that universe I was wrong, which is sometimes a nice mistake to make A story of a group on the run from powers far beyond their capacity to beat, it was a decent read The character development was predictable and th [...]

    11. This was a ripping yarn that I d recommend to anyone who enjoys Cyberpunk It s sort of A Team meets Neal Stephenson William Gibson Fyi, i wrote a much longer review on my blog and on By the time i got here i was tired so my review was shorter Regrettably i failed to note on the review that there is Christian content I think it waswell done as far as things like that are, but if you prefer to stay away from religious themes in fiction, you may want to note that It isnt heavy handed and doesnt aff [...]

    12. Running Black held my interest from page one It is filled with action, intrigue, and corporate espionage Despite the illegal nature of business being ran, I grew to care for the characters and rooted for them the whole way through.See the in depth review at Sift siftreviews 2011 08 ruReview by Kevin of Sift Book ReviewsSift Book Reviews received a free copy for review from the author This has, in no way, affected the reviewer s opinion.

    13. Running Black is an exceptionally well written debut novel filled with lots of action, intrigue and the firepower to go with it Todoroff s writing style is reminiscent of Neal Asher s work, but without the grand space opera scope There s huge potential here and it will be interesting to see where Todoroff takes the Enshu International team next Read the full review

    14. Overall, I was pleased with this book I got engrossed in the action scenes and thought the author did a great job of making the battles seem exciting and entertaining I did want a little character development, but perhaps with the basis established in this book, character development will be an easier task in the sequel.

    15. I love this book.The characters are very real easy to get into This book is very suspense, you never know what the next plot twist will be couple that with dynamite action sequences you have an AWESOME book

    16. Lot of funGood quick captivating read Enjoyable theme Excellent pacing and character development than usual for this genre I plan to read the next book

    17. I really love the action in this book, and how the author has drawn me into his world I can t wait to see what happens next
