Review- Know Thy Enemy by Douglas Misquita

Know Thy Enemy on Goodreads


An artifact from the Baghdad National Museum could justify the coalition invasion of Iraq. But the artifact is among items looted from the Museum just before the invasion.
CIA Analyst, Emma Burrows enlists the help of Captain William Bradford and a small Joint Task Force 2 team to retrieve the artifact.
Unknown to them, a mercenary unit led by Luc Fortesque is also after the stolen artifacts intending to sell them on the black market.

Know Thy Enemy is an action-short that introduces two key characters from the full length thriller novel, The Apocalypse Trigger.

Not a bad read at all, but not very good either. Know Thy Enemy is a prelude to author Douglas Misquita's The Apocalypse Trigger. I am not a fan of thriller novels, but I really don't mind giving all genres a try. I have read Douglas Misquita's Haunted, and that was a thriller/ mystery that I genuinely found interesting and well written. As for Know Thy Enemy, well, I didn't like it very much and I cringe to say this, but honesty is the policy, so here we go. 

The sole reason I picked up Know Thy Enemy is because it is barely 40 pages long. So I thought, why not? It took me less than an hour to finish off this quick read which introduces you to the characters in The Apocalypse Trigger. Well, firstly, save for maybe one or two names, I don't remember all the characters, and I didn't even understand the story. It could be my fault, it could be the book's fault. I don't know. But like I have been saying, I am not the biggest fan of Know Thy Enemy. 

Fans of thriller will devour this story as even I can say without doubt that it is action-packed. There is lots happening and the story moves from here to there like rapid fire, which is good. I always feel that short stories work only when they're done well. Unfortunately- and I hate to say this because I genuinely support Douglas Misquita- this was not for me. I will still for sure give The Apocalypse Trigger a try some time.
