  • "Okay, where is the next one?! We can't just be left hanging like that, I have to know what happens! Ahhh. Okay, this book was just as good as the first two (read this series in order, it's worth it), and I really like the way the storyline is playing itself out. The psychological element keeps me guessing, and the action keeps me turning the pages as fast as I can. Again the book starts off right in the middle of the action, and even though it was kind of weird that we are 10% through it before chapter 1 even starts, there is a lot of story set up to catch us up to speed and it really takes off. I just hope I don't have to wait too long for the next one to be published! A great series that I've enjoyed reading." (5 stars) Stacy Decker- Indie Book Reviewers, Goodreads, Librarything, Shelfari, Barnes & Noble
  • "To me, a good book is one that can take you away from your everyday life and engage your imagination in a believable and stimulating way. Noting worse than reading a boring, unbelievable book! Or worse, one with terrible writing! So I really like that for me this series has totally enraptured my imagination for the past week or so while I've been reading it, and plays out almost like a movie in my head. It is so easy to get lost in the storyline as the characters and scenes spring to life. I like that there are a lot of conversations that make the characters feel so real, as opposed to just long blocks of narrative text. They characters are cunning, complex, funny, strong, and will take you through a roller coaster of thoughts and emotions. "Eagle: Birds of Flight" has been another great effort from J.M. Erickson, and I'm looking forward to "Falcon" as soon as it is released! (5 stars)." Karen Matthews- Indie Book Reviewers, Goodreads, Librarything, Shelfari, Barnes & Noble
  • "This is the third book I've read from this author, the other 2 being the first in his "Birds of Flight" series. And while I will be the first to say that it's not without its flaws, really, what book (or series) isn't? At the end of the day, the author is telling a damn fine tale, one that has kept me thoroughly invested, so much so that when I realized that this wasn't actually the finale (which for some reason I'd thought it was), I was both disappointed and happy at the same time. Happy to be able to be reading more of this series, but disappointed to have to wait for it! Oh well, I know it will be worth it. I do hope that perhaps the author is able to perhaps make some minor editorial tweaks regarding the italics and the saying of "he/she thought" to avoid the redundancy. But I have to say that this has definitely been one of the better series I've read in a long time, as I usually end up losing interest as I go along, and that definitely hasn't been the case here." (5 stars). Corey Banyan- Indie Book Reviewers, Goodreads, Librarything, Shelfari, Barnes & Noble
  • "Another excellent read. "Birds of Flight: Eagle" is the third in a series, and just as captivating as the first two. I do notice how these books have a "I'll just read a little bit more" quality to them, where I reach the end of the chapter and want to keep going. There is an interesting combination of events that are coming together to form sort of a 'perfect storm' (including things from earlier in the series... read the first two book s first) and has created an explosive atmosphere of peril and (almost) non-stop action. At times the pacing might be a bit uneven. And there were a few minor editing things like before, but this is still a very good read, as are the other books in this series. They are easy to get into and keep your interest as the story just builds and builds layer upon layer. I do give the author credit for actually making a story that is intelligent and makes you think, and has a psychological cat and mouse edge to it. I read from his bio he has a background in this field and it shows. Now we just need the next one so we can see how this all ends up." (4 stars). Sam Ryan- Indie Book Reviewers, Goodreads, Librarything, Shelfari, Barnes & Noble
