I was in an Army airborne unit in Afghanistan stationed right next to the border, and although not a special operator, I could relate with a lot of wh..Show More »at Kolt was experiencing, and it just brought be back in vivid detail! I was able to visualize almost everything! I especially like Dalton's writing because, unlike Vince Flynn, the language is realistic and there are really no lewd language or sexual references, which is just wholly unnecessary to create a great story. I find that all too often with Vince Flynn's content.
I didn't expect a story with a lot of twists and turns or a complex plot, but Dalton delivered! I got the Audible audiobook and there is an interview with Dalton at the end which I appreciated.
I seriously can't wait for the next one to get released!! Highly recommended!
I was devastated with the loss of Vince Flynn. He was a patriot and his Mitch Rapp series was just fantastic. So many times I found myself sitting in ..Show More »the driveway listening for just a few more minutes before turning off my ipod. However, with Vince, so went Mitch.
I like the Scot Harvath books and especially the Dewey Andreas series (these rock) but Dalton Fury has really nailed it with his Delta Force books.
Again I find myself sitting in my driveway listening for a few more minutes before going into the house. I've finished both books in the series in record time. I just couldn't stop listening. In fact, I'll probably listen again, just as I did with each of the Mitch Rapp books.
If you're a Mitch Rapp fan and looking for a comparable character and story, this is it. I can't wait for the next book in the series.
The narration is fantastic as well. He does a great job capturing the essence of every single character, helping the characters and the story come alive.
Though this book started off with some promise - By the middle I was ready to delete from my library. This was a full assault on my brain in general. ..Show More »Note to author - Please stop inserting a dialog about who Kolt Raynor is supposed to be in the beginning of the book. I know that Kolt is not real - You telling me about why you created him and what I am supposed to think about him - Is like telling me this guy is totally make believe. Don't tell me how good the chocolate is. Just give me a piece & I determine how good it is on my own. Kolt's internal dialog and moral dilema's have to go as well. I listened to the first two novels & I thought the 2nd was better than the first. When the 3rd installment came out - I thought "Great" but I also thought it was quick. This story line confirmed the latter. You want to know how i know this guy isn't Mitch Rapp like some would think - Mitch would have killed and mamed whoever to get to Hawk. The suicide mission was weird. Shot - Radiactive water - Semi drowning - Fake bombs - Mass execution to insert a player. Are we still in something that isn't science fiction? A good friend - I.E. Publisher/Editor if they read this should have told you what I'm about to tell you. This book stunk. Sorry man
