It was pretty darn good. The Narration was great. The story was mostly plausible. To tell you the truth - I was really, really liking three quarters of the book. I was feeling it emotionally and intrigued. The ending didn't (kill) it overall for me. It wasn't bad - It just didn't rock me. I had a better time getting to know Colt in the beginning and listening to the transformation - Then I did listening to the end. High marks for Dalton Fury's 1st fiction Novel. The character and series have promise.
I enjoy counter-terrorism, westerns, historical fiction, detective mysteries, and old school comedy like "A Christmas Story".
Dalton Fury is a powerfully entertaining author of the counter-espionage novel. He stands unique because he is an actual veteran who has experienced the men and action be portrays fictionally in his novels. I enjoy his details about strategy, tactics, weapons, and politics involved in fighting covert objectives in our modern world. I was never bored. He fills his plot with non-stop action. I thoroughly enjoyed his first book also: "Kill Bin Laden". I look forward to his next book. He is a fantastic new addition to this genre. If you like The books of Vince Flynn, you will love Dalton Fury.
... seconds after finishing the first book. Solid book from an American hero. this is informed fiction... lingo as correct and the feel or the painting the author paints reminds me of the D boys i observed at a distance as a young soldier while in a nasty warlord (now pirate ) infested country.
great read/listen. thank you again Mr Fury for giving me non-SEAL option in this space...even they need heros (RTLW).
I've read all of Dalton Fury's books and very much enjoyed listening to the audio version of Black Site. Looking forward to listening to the next one and hope to see the entire series recorded in audio form and available at Audible.
What a great story!
Other than a few very small details like enunciation or how a particular word is said the narrator didn't excellent job.
I'm really looking forward to the next book.
Yes, Black Site is a well written action packed book. Kolt "Racer" Raynor is a fun character to follow. Listening to the way Dalton Fury tell the story it is very realistic feeling. Dalton as most know wrote the book Kill Bin Laden and was a member of the country's elite special mission unit Delta Force. He writes from first hand knowledge about how someone might go about these things, it adds credibility to the fictional story and makes it that much more exciting.
Nothing really compares to this book. Some of the Clancy novels come close but the only thing that compares to this book is the others in the series.
LISTEN TO THIS BOOK!
I buy Audible books to help make my daily slow drive to work less frustrating. This book has me idling when I get to work/home to finish listening! Nonstop action from page 1 has me hanging on every word.
The story was good but I just couldn't get past the writing. Every other sentence was a metaphor or simile. "The road wound through the mountains like a snake.: "His head was pounding like a jackhammer." After a while it just got annoying. Let me imagine the landscape for myself. Needed more showing, less telling.
I usually don't read these types of stories, but I'm glad I decided to take a chance on this one. I wasn't disappointed, it was a great story. It was exciting,fast paced and engaging. A real interesting page Turner. It would make a great movie. I'm a fan now.
