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

Plot revolves around a splinter ground of Taliban who decide to start using child soldiers obtained via kidnapping and an Air Force Liaison, Michael Parson with his Army Translator sidekick, Sophia Gold get involved. The book is a sequel, #3 in the list. Author does a great job explaining the action and absolute horror of the war. However, those not enamored of military jargon and ethics might not get it.

I expected more

Heavy on characterization and action, but just couldn't maintain my interest and left me unsatisfied. The characters were likeable, but lacking interaction in any substantive way in spite of the history they apparently have together.

Best yet

Would you listen to The Renegades again? Why?

I read it first, then listened to it, then read it again. Good book well researched and written. I will likey listen to it again because it is well executed and I like Scott Brick

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Renegades?

The discovery of the terror on the village that was being helped by aid workers.

What does Scott Brick bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

As a former docent and voice over novice I appreciate the texture that is brought by a reader / interperter.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Not really, however it does amplify the devastating impact the fanaticism has on the world at large.

Any additional comments?

Tom - Keep up the good work, in between flights that is.
