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.

Disappointing

I know there are loads of great reviews - WOW and Amazing but that wasn't my reaction, rather I was disappointed. I listened to the first book in the series and hoped I had found a new series to follow but alas this is not the case. I am a HUGE fan of this genre listened to Mark Greaney's Grey Man series more than once, Jack Reacher, John Rain, Orphan X, Mitch Rapp, Sniper (Kyle Swanson), Pike Logan, you get the picture ... but this novel is more like an action movie where there is one excuse after another for a fight scene. Limited plot, no investment in character development (there was in the first novel) and sequences that don't make sense. To give an example (spoiler alert) at the beginning of the story Eric's mom has a book and a local group of incompetent thugs are supposed to get it. However, the mastermind isn't happy with them, eliminates them, doesn't know the skills or anything about Eric's home and yet comes loaded for a war, based on what intel? The logic wasn't there unless, you wanted a big action scene like in the movies. And what about that book and Eric's dad? That part of the story is dropped until there is one statement near the end. Basically this is one action scene after another - think high explosives, lots of guns little to no plot, thin character development ... If you like video games and action movies you most likely will like this novel, however if you like a tighter plot, more sophistication in your story line, deeper and richer character development you might be like me, disappointed.
