For me, I appreciate reading a novel that has some familiar locations and memories of the past. In this novel, I was thrilled to see Cape Canaveral (lived there in my early years as Dad worked at the Cape); Apalachicola, FL...My Mom and I had some of the best seafood in my life there. And, being a retired USN Chief from the aviation community, all of the data on the aircraft mentioned was like a trip down memory lane.
The reader will become familiar with three members of a special unit...Gunner, Cam and Bear. One is fearless, one is stealthy and one has combat skills. They come as a package and their motto is 'ride or die'. And, yes, they do get a special mission in this novel...The 'Jackal' makes an appearance and hope it is not her last!
The novel centers around an asteroid...2029 IM 86 that is inbound...Questions include how long until it hits Earth, what can be done, if anything, to prevent it and the ramifications of this asteroid colliding with Earth... Heart pounding, BP rising, and action in many different locations...Stand by to stand by...
This is an extremely well-written novel (including the research) , contains a multi-layered plot with well developed characters. I appreciate the fact that there are numerous strong female characters in positions of leadership throughout this one. And, that humor is interjected at the appropriate times...always like that when the action becomes intense..
Will definitely read on to the second one in this new series. This first one is truly outstanding. Charge your Kindle first~
Most highly recommended.
