Latest Reviews

'Mariani's novels have consistently delivered on fast-paced action and The Armada Legacy is no different. Short chapters and never-ending twists mean that you can't put the book down, and the high stakes of the plot make The Armada Legacy as brilliant to read as all the previous novels in the series.' - Female First

'Sunken secrets, psychos in the jungle, a dark twist on a Hitchcockian Vertigo-style obsession - The Armada Legacy is slick, serpentine, sharp, and very very entertaining. If you've got a pulse, you'll love Scott Mariani; if you haven't, then maybe you crossed Ben Hope.' - Simon Toyne, best-selling author of the Sanctus Trilogy
