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 went into this book with low expectations, I like the material but most books in this genre are all jargon and equipment spec and little on plot and thick on hokey action. This book is actually well written, has a great plot, and contains really well written action, oh, and the equipment specs are perfect. I cannot tell you how happy I was with this book, it unfolded well, had great character development, a great cast and was written from an inside perspective with talent that brought the story to the lay audience in an interesting and heartfelt fashion. I really liked this book. If you do not care for military stories, this may be the one exception to make, it is a good story. If you like military themed stories you are going to love this book, it is written from someone who knows the material from a life spent living it and then brings it to the page in good style, better than what you are used to getting by far. I was surprised by the talent this author has and happy I listened to this story.
Well recommended for anyone that likes a great action / suspense story.
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.
I'm on the fence on whether to get the second book. I liked the premise of this book but it never really got too exciting nor did I find myself rooting for Kolt like with many other books I have read and listened to.
Having read to kill bin Laden, I was a little apprehensive about continuing to hear works by this author. I wasn't holding too many expectations as I was standing to the axiom "operators can't write and writer can't operate".
However, Dalton Fury proved me wrong and has woven a pretty realistic and exciting tale of life in the front lines with some surprisingly deep characters.
Well worth the investment and I will be reading the next in line.
This went fast and was hard to stop listening to as the characters were flawed but full of action and provided some realism to the story. I really liked having the author interview at the end and wish more authors did this to allow us to connect with them. Get this book now as you won't be disappointed!
Enjoyed the new series and a new hero. The author kept it interesting. The narrator is very good and it sure makes a difference. I hope there are a lot of books in this series.
Action and the hero not doing too many dumb things.
If you like this genera, then you will love this book. I found my self talking to the characters, urging them to "keep going!!"... or " awww snap, here it cones" which doesn't go over so well at Starbucks, but i just could not help my self. definitely worth it,
