Publisher's Summary

Delta Force operator Kolt Raynor must thwart a deadly terrorist plot in this globe-hopping special operations thriller in the New York Times best-selling series.

When SEAL Team Six killed Osama bin Laden, they pulled a treasure trove of intelligence on planned attacks on U.S. soil. Ayman al-Zawahiri, al Qaeda's new leader, is activating his most trusted (and deadliest) terrorists to carry out his newest plot: to detonate a bomb inside one of the 64 commercial nuclear power plants in the U.S. in an attack 10 times worse than 9/11, causing radiological fallout that would kill hundreds of thousands of innocent Americans.

The president wants answers quickly, and after Kolt Raynor saved his life a few months earlier, he knows Delta Force is fully capable. But Kolt is on the verge of getting forced out of JSOC for disobeying orders in Pakistan - and when he's offered a slot in Tungsten, an ultra-secret deep-cover organization, he jumps at the chance. Now his task is to infiltrate al Qaeda and prevent this deep-cover terror cell from making their plot a reality before it's too late. In Full Assault Mode, former Delta Force commander Dalton Fury takes listeners inside the world of undercover special operations - where every wrong step costs lives, and one minute might just be one minute too late....

Want to know what bad Editing is - Get this book

What disappointed you about Full Assault Mode?

Seems like the author decided not to use an editor for this book. Or, perhaps, he chose to use one who was not an English speaker. Not once, not twice, but THREE times, he referred to a described "sucking chest wound" as a "sunken chest wound." It really seems odd that a former operator would make such an error.The story often jumped abruptly from an action scene to "a couple of days later at headquarters..." More importantly the story just frequently seems very awkward. I swear that it reads more like a first or second draft than a finished piece.

Has Full Assault Mode turned you off from other books in this genre?

Nope.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Ari Fliakos?

Sure. He's not at George Guidall's level, but Mr. Fliakos does a solid job here.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Confusion. The first two books did not suffer from the terrible editing that this one did. Another person commented that Fury did not write this book. If he did write the first two, I would agree. The writing style seems very off from the first two books. (By the way, I would cheerfully recommend either of the first books in this series.)

Any additional comments?

I sure hope that the next book being released in a few days is substantially better produced than this one.

Liked the 1st 2 a whole lot more!

What did you like best about Full Assault Mode? What did you like least?

I liked that Kolt is not dead...LOL...This was only a shadow of his first two books...way to much redundancy. I mean how many times do we have to hear about why Kolt is doing this, and what he did before and how for the 3rd time he his saving thousands of people maybe millions...or maybe the whole frickin' world. I know its a novel...but come on now, lets keep it somewhat real!

Has Full Assault Mode turned you off from other books in this genre?

Still a good listen but 1/2 way thru I was was ready to abandon the novel.

Which scene was your favorite?

There is way too much going on to pick one!

Was Full Assault Mode worth the listening time?

No.

Any additional comments?

It does seem that all franchise authors hit the wall at one of there books. I think this was it for Dalton Fury. I bet the next one will be as good as the first 2.

Not as good as the first 2

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The story really jumps around. There were several times in during the book that I thought I may have missed a chapter or something. The scenes jump from one location to another and he doesnt explain how the character got out a certain situation.

Would you be willing to try another book from Dalton Fury? Why or why not?

Yes. I like the narrator and author. This book just wasn't as good as the first 2.

Which character – as performed by Ari Fliakos – was your favorite?

Kolt

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

maybe

This book is nothing like the first two ....

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

I loved the first two books in this series. In fact, they may be my favorites in this genre. This installment, unfortunately, was poorly edited. It is filled with long, circular streams of thought, bizarre time lapses that constantly had me wondering if a day or a month had passed within the story, and over-the-top plot twists that felt more at home in a cartoon.

Has Full Assault Mode turned you off from other books in this genre?

Not at all. I chalk this up to poor editing.

Which scene was your favorite?

The entire book had me mildly perplexed ... as if I'd missed a chapter or five. I honestly didn't enjoy any of the scenes.

What character would you cut from Full Assault Mode?

See above.

Any additional comments?

At the risk of repetition, I love the first two installments. Assuming the author hires the original editor, I'll chalk this one up to a "miss" and look forward to Kolt's next adventure.

Disappointed

Would you try another book from Dalton Fury and/or Ari Fliakos?

I might. The reader was good, but I did not like the way the book jumped around.

What was most disappointing about Dalton Fury’s story?

I really liked Dalton Fury's first 2 books, but was disappointed with this one. The book jumps around too much. The main charactor is in the middle of an enemy camp in Afgahnistan at the end of one chapter (Cliff Hanger) and the beginning of the next chapter, it is 2 weeks later and he is at Fort Bragg with only a flashback glimps of how he got out of Afgahnistan.

Storyline did not make any sense

Liked the first two in a series, but this story did not make any sence, specially the second half.
Seemed like it was written by somebody else.

Fall from grace

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. 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

A good read, a little off from previous books

Overall I still enjoyed the book, characters and plot. A little frustrating with some of the errors in the story with recalling events in previous books and how it jumped around a lot with huge gaps in the story.

Inconsistencies in story.

if you're going to write a story you have to maintain consistency throughout when rain or found the second Dodge the original description was it was idling and the running lights were on when he goes to move it now all of a sudden

Not missing chapters just horribly disjointed

As someone who has exhausted the available titles in the Jack Reacher, Mitch Rapp, Scot Harvath and Jack Ryan (both Sr. and Jr.) universe, Kolt Raynor was a welcome new character to me in my favorite genre. That is, until I got to Full Assault Mode. First, the book is horribly disjointed. There are multiple points where it seems like entire chapters were simply omitted. Having had the joy of getting corrupted Audible files before which did not play sequentially, I hoped that was the case here; however, sadly, it is not. Dalton Fury apparently decided that writing certain chapters was not necessary and elected to jump ahead to the next part of the plot without writing the relevant parts of the story. This leaves a number of gaps in the story that while not insurmountable to bridge with your imagination are well beyond what most people would consider an acceptable time shift in a novel. Second, in the prior books, I have enjoyed the description of Kolt's accoutrement, but in Full Assault Mode it feels like Dalton Fury was under the impression that he was writing a script for a segment on QVC selling tactical equipment not fleshing out his character. Overall, Full Assault Mode is still an interesting listen with a good but not great story, but the execution on this one was not what readers of Dalton Fury's first three books (including, Kill Bin Laden) have come to expect from Mr. Fury.
