For awhile now my sister has hounded me to read this series, said I would love it. Turns out I did! I only have read the first book but I loved it SO much. Anyone who asks I'll say this is a must read book. I can't wait to read the 2nd and 3rd books. "Allah's Fire" kept me on the edge of my couch the whole time. And as the book went on the more interesting it was, there was more action, more humor, and just more John and Liz! I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was almost like a movie for me. The writers displayed the planning, the bombings, the terrorists, the army guys so well. Keep them coming!
If you're looking for action packed military books this is about as good as it gets. It is an exciting story filled with action and humorous and likeable main characters. Of course, there is a dark side to the story. It shows a little into the muslim mind and the shameful way they treat their women. Liz Fairchild is in Beruit to write a story on these women when her sister is kidnapped during a hotel bombing. this powerful new fire bomb is what brings Task Force Valor in from the states where they have been mourning a fallen friend. Liz is determined to find her sister, John Cooper, the distributors of the hily volatile new bomb. The two's missions collide and they must work together to accomplish their missions and get out of the country safely before they are captured. Great read. Buckle your seat belt. It's quite a ride.
Very truthful in its depiction of what that area is like in Lebanon.Keeps a person's interest up and helps to understand the mind-set of Islamic radicals. Find it more non-fiction than fiction.Jan Robbins
Great read. This book sat in my book stash for months and I didn't pick it up. When I did start reading it, I couldn't put it down. I like suspense, military drama and light romance. I disagree that it was mushy. I am hoping the two authors develop the characters of the rest of the team. I also truly makes you appreciate our military. This book is NOT far-fetched. I looking forward to reading more in the series.
