Publisher's Summary

“Eric Steele and author Sean Parnell are the real deal.” (Lee Child)

Special operative Eric Steele, introduced in Man of War, is on the hunt for a formidable Russian terrorist in this high-intensity tale of international intrigue from the author of the New York Times best-selling memoir, Outlaw Platoon.

Badly injured while stopping a rogue agent from obtaining weapons of mass destruction, elite warrior Eric Steele is drawn back into service before he’s ready when unknown assailants break into his home near Pittsburgh, injuring his mother and stealing his father’s pistol.

An Alpha - an elite soldier under the direct command of the president of the United States - Steele is hell-bent on finding the attackers and bringing them to justice. While tracking his foe, Steele discovers he’s become entangled in a far more sinister plan that’s already been set in motion.

A terrorist named Zakayev, once locked away in a maximum-security prison in Russia, has escaped and joined forces with Hassan Sitta, a man who’s shown his prowess and ingenuity with a spectacular bomb planted somewhere in the Middle East that hasn’t been ignited - and no one can find. But that is only the beginning of a horrifying plan that, if it succeeds, will shatter international alliances and bring the world to the brink of war.

Now, the hunted must turn the tables on the hunter - Steele must find a way to stay alive and stop Zakayev before innocent lives are lost.

WOW!!

ALL OUT WAR is action packed and fast paced while also having a rock solid plot. It's the perfect combination of the adrenaline junkie. If you like espionage thrillers this is a must listen. R.C. Bray, probably the best in the business, narrates.

This is the next Jason Bourne - authentic, exciting, unpredictable and entertaining

The next generation of Jason Bourne Is Eric Steele. This is one of the most exciting, well researched, creative works of fiction I have read. The spy craft, inner workings of the intelligence and operative apparatus, and characters will rivet you from the start and hold you to the end. The only thing I didn’t like was that eventually the story concludes. Looking forward to the next installment.

Read this book!

Another non-stop crazy awesome story from Sean Parnell! Can't get enough! Building off his first novel, the intensity doesn't slacken. If the devil is in the details, Satan is here... authentic, complex characters with realistic conflicts and emotions. If you read Mack Bolan books as a kid, you will not be able to put this book down!

Wow! Eric Steele is Stalker 7 - an Alpha Warrior

This is Sean's 2 novel and is even better than Man Of War (didn't think that could happen but it did!). All Out War is all action from the beginning til the end. The plot is complex and keeps you guessing up to the last page. There are unanswered questions but they only lead to the next Eric Steele adventure. This is definitely a must read and puts Sean in the same category as Thor and Flynn.

Keep ‘em coming

Fantastic all around! Parnell is a master storyteller. He’s created a fully human character in Eric Steele. I look forward to the next book.

If the author did better character development, then the story would be more captivating. This book is mostly action, almost too much action. Action alone is not enough to keep me engaged. In fact when a main good sub-character dies I could of cared less because I did not feel invested into that character. If this happened in a really well written book like by Vince Flynn, then I'd have just the opposite feelings. Since the character development was not done early and well or even comprehensively, then all the action scenes could not keep me captivated - even though there are many great action scenes in this book. I easily put the book down between listening sessions and never feel like I was missing out on anything. It is not a book that gets you excited to keep on reading and one that you never want to put down. One super annoying thing about this author is that he uses "like" probably 500 times. After he makes a statement then he says "like this ..." or "like that ..." trying to draw creative analogies to the situation. If you are a keen listener then this will soon drive you nuts, then eventually you just start laughing at the stupidity of such over usage of "like". I've read over 5,000 books and never have I seen an author even come close to using "like" so much. One character turns the shower water all the way to cold as it's like 1 shot of espresso. Gee, I wonder what author he stole that line from? From chapter 7 we know that the main character's father is still alive. Listening to all the self-talk of the characters gets annoying. Also, the "what if's ..." self-talk is also really annoying. It's really stupid of the author to mention that the gun's serial #s has been scratched off. Because that is old school and these days all scratched off serial #'s can be seen with new technology. It is also incredibly stupid and annoying when the author has to read off like 25 #'s back to back for coordinates. Really! Do we want to hear that crap? He does this 3 times in the book that I can remember. It is incredibly stupid when one of the President's men says that only 4 other people in the world know of this top-secret program ie a secret ice breaker that acts as a prison. Heck 8 people alone work on the ice breaker. How can only 4 people know about a billion $ program. Not likely! Even a few terrorists know about the program. There are too many stupidly impossible statements in this book (wine & Clorox, dodging a pistol shot from 10' away, having a conversation with the enemy while they fight to the death, the bad guy says he doesn't want to die as a martyr then he does just that) that I could never list them all. Just degrades credibility and quality of the story.

Entertaining, well written, and great narration!

Sean Parnell definitely keeps you hooked and wanting more. Made even better with R.C. Bray, one of may favorite narrators. The result being an audio book that keeps you listening even after you’ve arrived at your destination.
