    1. Once-loyal lifetime fans of the Pretender television series were lied to about what would be in the both Saving Luke and its predecessor Rebirth. The series is not "reborn". The series has been rebooted. There is a difference. One being that there is a time gap "problem" that everyone is talking about, probably because a reboot means the time line, the characters and original story line have been given the boot. The fans, too, have been given the boot, by the creators of The Pretender. The writi [...]


    2. Abandoned. Boring as hell, and it was one dirty-old-man barb after another. The authors spin back and forth between juvenile jokes that are bereft of humor and dirty old man jargon. It's what happens when boys don't grow up. The characters were out of character. The typos were the least of my complaints. This isn't my show. The Pretender hasn't been my show since season two back when it aired on television, but at least was sort of interesting. Now it's boring and dull. The cliff hangers and the [...]


    3. I hate the "ingenious Jason Bourne" comparisons. That's so far fetched that it isn't even funny. I know there are life long fans that really really want these pretender books to make it so the sales will fund a third movie but come on! All star ratings when the book hasn't been released or read yet? That's like lying. It's stupid! I'm not going to lie!Rebirth and Saving Luke are NOTHING nothing at all like the Bourne novels. These Pretender books are no where near the league of the Bourne Novels [...]


    4. Lies. Cliffhangers. Bad writing. Bad editing. Bad cover design. Rebotch. That sums it up I think. I didn't finish readingd that seems fitting for a fandom where we wait 19 years and counting for an ending.


    5. Didn't buy this one. I was fooled once. I won't be fooled again. Poorly written, edited, designed. Juvenile. Stupid. Hideous. The word "Pretender" printed on the book is the only similarity these novels bear to The Pretender television series. The characters were completely OOC, unrecognizable, cheap caricatures. Because it's a reboot. I wish I'd known that before I purchased the first novel. New questions, new cliffhangers, juvenile dialog, cheap jokes. I thought the writers were grown men. Mea [...]


    6. “The Pretender – Saving Luke” picks up moving right along with Jarods mission to find the missing boy and discover who his parents really are. Previously in “The Pretender – Rebirth,” Jarod had escaped The Centre and the beautiful Miss Parker and her crew on hard on the chase to find Jarod. Stopping at nothing to find him, Jarod must stay five steps ahead and keep them guessing.The Pretender has a heart of gold and fights for the “little guy” who can’t fight for himself in all [...]


    7. Following right after the events portrayed in The Pretender: Rebirth, The Pretender: Saving Luke is the reason why oxygen masks were invented. It's intense, frantic, emotional and funny. When I read The Pretender: Rebirth I thought it had set the bar pretty high. And it did. Nevertheless, The Pretender: Saving Luke manages to set the bar even higher. The main reason for this is that, while the previous book was inevitably compared to what we used to know from the TV show, The Pretender: Saving L [...]


    8. Seven months after the release of Rebirth, the first chapter that enchanted and catapulted us into a new adventure undertaken by the authors Steven Long Mitchell and Craig W. Van Sickle, Saving Luke, the second awaited book of The Pretender world is finally here.The story follows from what was narrated in Rebirth. Jarod is looking for answers about an imminent terrorist attack and he must thwart it without endangering young Luke’s life, whose father is being threatened to cooperate with the ab [...]


    9. Saving Luke is a captivating combination of elements- mystery, suspense, intrigue, and, of course, love- that make the second Pretender novel a true page-turner. Following the exploits of our favorite characters, The Pretender: Saving Luke is an intellectual adventure true to the core dynamics of the TV series complete with twists and turns, as well as answers and new questions that will satisfy old and news fans alike!


    10. "Saving Luke" by Steven Long Mitchell and Craig W. Van Sickle, is the second novel in "The Pretender" rebirth series and as such contains the second half of the story that first began in "Book 1: Rebirth". Before beginning, I reread Book 1 to find my bearings, this time the 2nd edition. Therein, I discovered a more polished product but it still contained some spelling and grammatical errors.In "Rebirth", we were introduced to the protagonist Jarod and his mission: to find and return a kidnapped [...]


    11. A thrill ride from first page till last, Saving Luke reminds me of all the things I loved about the Pretender, leaving me greedy for more. Much more!Everything is there that I have come to expect from the series and so much more. The story is non-stop fun and excitement with amazing twist, unexpected turns and surprises too numerous to list.We see deeper into the characters than ever before, and Saving Luke offers insights, especially into Miss Parker, that provide whole new understanding, and a [...]


    12. Loved this book! Could not put it down -- really! Having found the first book in the series (Rebirth) enjoyable, I was further impressed with this one an adrenaline-fuelled ride, it left me breathless at the end, and wanting more Gritty in parts, funny in others, it takes the reader on a wonderful journey, scattered with colourful characters (and language) en route leading up to a heart-thumping conclusion and the promise of new adventures in the future I can't wait for the continuation of Ja [...]


    13. If I could give it more than five stars, I would. The sequel of "Rebirth" is even better than the first book. The story picked up right where it left off, and we embark on a race against time to save not only Luke but the lives of thousands. It was difficult for me to put down the book once I started reading. It was always one more chapter, one more chapter. I just didn't want to stop reading.It's a real pleasure to have Jarod, Parker, Sydney and the others back. I missed them after the show cam [...]


    14. I loved "The Pretender - Rebirth" and was blown away by how well the creators did on their first novel. But this second novel has far surpassed even the highest of my expectations. This novel could and should be a best seller. Talk about a wild and interesting ride. The authors had be on the edge of my seat and guessing up until the last chapter. Well done! Read this novel. Run don't walk.

    16. So who else remembers the TV series "T he Pretender"? It got cancelled but the die-hard fan-base meant the creators couldn't resist respawning the series as books. The first is Rebirth, continued it the double "episode" Saving Luke. It's a fun but confusing read for someone who followed the series, because it's not clear if the writers have rebooted the series or are trying to continue on from where the series left off. I wasn't such a die-hard follower that I can recall the details of where tha [...]



    17. Everyone can imagine a fan's surprise when they learn the series they loved so dearly is returning. It was a hyped return only to learn the return would be a novel, not film. I was disappointedny of us were, but it didn't lower my expectations. I've now read both novels in the series and have given up on the series as it's been four years since the second novel.The primary grievance is the reboot itself. Instead of staying the course, they tried to fix something that wasn't broken when all we wa [...]

    19. I was hooked on the 90's TV Show "The Pretender" from the very first episode. I didn't know much about the program at its inception other than my all-time favorite actor, Michael T. Weiss, had the male lead. At the time, that's really all I cared about. Michael was back on TV and it didn't matter if the show was good or bad I was gonna watch it just to see him, but it quickly turned into more than that for me.Jarod's search for his family, identity and desire to help others touched me in a way n [...]


    20. With a fast paced storytelling, Saving Luke tells the extraordinary adventure of Jarod, a genius who will do anything it takes to save a little boy.As a long time fan, I was thrilled to find more about these characters as the action unfolds, as well as a few easter eggs. But if you're new to the saga, don't let this discourage you - you can pick it up.However, I would recommend starting with Rebirth, because the second Pretender novel follow that storyline - if you enjoyed reading the first nove [...]


    21. The finish to The Pretender: Rebirth. Nice, true to the characters. Adds some new people that I find intriguing, and near the end we see some familiar faces we may (or may not) have missed. I'm eager to read more about Jared.


    22. I really loved The Pretender series and miss it. But this book and the first one helped fill that void. The story is riveting, easy to follow and a bit of behind the scenes which is always interesting.Thanks to the authors and please continue writing Jarod's stories.


    23. Loved it!As a huge fan of the show, this book was just as great! Staying true to the characters that you remember and throwing new ones in made for a great story. Can't wait to read more!


    24. I liked it. Is it a departure from the show? yeah. But it's got its own merit. Besides, I'm a character in it, so I'm kinda a big deal now ;)
