Publisher's Summary

Tom Young has earned both popular and critical acclaim for his scintillating suspense fiction. In The Warriors, Lt. Col. Michael Parson couldn’t be happier about his new assignment on a Kyrgyzstan air base. But after taking what he expected to be an easy job, a drug-laden C-27 crashes on the runway - drawing Parson into a deadly game of intrigue that could end in an international conflagration.

Good continuation of characters.

Good deviation from the Afghan and Iraq storyline. it does bring you back to the mid 90's, when the background story took place.

Great Story, Entwined in forgotten resent history

Just finished "The Warriors" and really enjoyed it. The Story went somewhere I didn't expect, and included some resent history that is often forgotten. Gives a few perspectives on some of the turmoil that took place in the Balkans during the 1990s. Scott Brick does a great job like always. Hope there are more books in store for us.

This Review Needs A Title...So, I Gave it One

Our heroes, Gold and Parsons work together again. The book described a good break down of the Balkan Wars and the mindsets of the different sides involved. As an interesting aside, Young uses an RC-135 Rivet Joint ((RJ) as an integral part of the story. Author admits to lack of experience with it--in my humble opinion, RJ would never be employed as he describes, nor are it's security procedures so lax that it could be bomb damaged in flight. Logistics? Not even close. Further, I thought that the author's perspective parochially Air Force; almost as bad as Robinson and Brown (Don) are with their Navy stories. Additionally, Parsons and his new Air Guard boss got off track from their Manas mission quite a lot...not may bosses would stand for that. That said, the story was, again, gripping and exciting. The characters were well portrayed.. Introduced this time, an OSI agent, an Air Guard Colonel/lawyer and a linguist. We understand Parsons and Gold pretty well after this, the fourth book in the series.

waste of a credit

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

this book was horrible. The characters were weak. The plot was weak. I listen to app. 3 to 5 books a week and this is the worst in a long time.

Have you listened to any of Scott Brick’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have listened to a hundred or more books narrated by Scott Brick and he is always great.

lame don't waste the credit

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

This book would be good for someone who doesn't like good books. Oh and someone who really followed the Serbian conflict.

What could Tom Young have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

I can only tell you the type of books I like: I like fast paced action/adventure with good guys and bad guys and a lot of guns. This book tries all of that but just can't make it happen. There is no hero/good guy. There is a bunch of people that follow the bad guy around and do nothing. The story is not even close to being credible (and I promise I am a cheap date with low standards). It is boring.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

The only redeeming quality was Scott Brick. He is amazing but I bought this book because of him so he owes me a credit.

Any additional comments?

If you like Vince Flynn, Brad Thor, and all the other good ones you won't like this.
