  • Blackwater: The Rise of the World's Most Powerful Mercenary Army

    Story
    (139)

    A largely untold facet of the war on terror is the widespread outsourcing of military tasks to private mercenary companies. Accountable neither to the citizenry nor to standard military legal codes, these largely unregulated corporate armies are being entrusted with ever-greater responsibilities on behalf of the nation.

    Stanley says: "Truly frightening"
    "Wandering with an awful narrator"
    Overall

    While there's a lot of interesting material in this book, it wanders for hours and is often more a discussion of the Iraq war than about Blackwater.
    And the narrator . . . awful. For the first time, I'm going write down his name to make sure I never download another title read by this man.

    When Charlie turns 12 on New Year's Eve, the Flame Cats give him a grave warning: something ancient has awoken, and Charlie must be watchful. Soon Charlie learns that the shadow from the Red King's portrait has been released, and that it will do anything to keep Charlie from finding his father. Meanwhile, pets are mysteriously vanishing from the city, and Olivia is in danger of revealing her newfound powers.

    Felicity Fairchild says: "Splendid!"
    "My Review"
    Overall

    This book is a really amazing book! I would recomend this book to kids that like a adventure. I really like Magic books and this has magic in it and I would also recomend it to Fantasy readers!
