Book Description

The AK-47 instinctively rose toward the Mexican sergeant, and bullets poured out of the suppressor like water from a hose from hell. The only sound Mike heard was the rapid, metallic clack, clack, clack of the bolt cycling, and then he caught a glimpse of two—now three—more uniformed men with rifles. He could sense the three shooters' intentions as their fingers moved to the triggers. For the first time ever, the inactive Marine had a really, really bad thought ... I'm not gonna make it.'Black Eagle Force explodes out of the current-day violence now occurring on the US border with Mexico involving Mexican drug cartels and terrorists. President Annette Henry Thompson calls on the BEF to intercept 'suitcase nuclear devices'' headed to a Mexican terrorist group planning to detonate them in the US. The nukes and twenty female sex slaves are being held by the notorious terrorist arms dealer and human trafficker, Javier Cojone, on his remote, heavily defended island north of the Yucatan in the Gulf of Mexico. Dare Phillips and Mike Hermann deploy their elite Special Ops force with their unique and deadly 'Black Eagle' VTOLs in the path of Hurricane Ellen.'Black Eagle Force has it all: nail-biting excitement, edge-of-your-seat action, fast-paced drama, and even laugh-out-loud humor that will leave you wanting more.'– Loree Lough, author of 80+ award-winning novels, including From Ashes to Honor, #1 in the First Responders series

Review

FOR FANS OF CLANCY, LARRY BOND, DALE BROWN, CUSSLER, COONTS...MILITARY ACTION/TECHNO!
MILITARY WRITERS SOCIETY OF AMERICA REVIEW

Black Eagle Force:Eye of the Storm is a novelized version of a Steve McQueen movie -- not much dialogue and lots of evil-doers. It's big on smiting and revenge and counter-attacks. The characters have access to an endless array of weapons that wreak destruction on vehicles, buildings, and human beings -- both villanous and innocent. It has an idealogical perspective appropriate for the locale and backgrounds of the people who fight their way through adventure after testosterone-laced adventure. 
In fact, I could see this story being successful as a 3-D electronic game. There are really bad guys, political bad guys, and bad guys with a mission. There are old foes with old grudges -- and organized gangs bent on making money off of illegal aliens desperate to steal across the border into America. They advance like snarling space invaders in costume. The reader/gamer/hero reaches for a joy stick and takes down each and every one, earning points depending on the length of the fight and the type of weapon used.
Authors Stienke and Farmer ignite the fire of Clancy audiences -- and deliver on the promise of intrigue, villainy, and the big come back.

Format:Perfect Paperback
The fast-paced action in "Black Eagle Force: Eye Of The Storm" by Buck Stienke and Ken Farmer reminds me of a big summer action blockbuster in the theater, only in book form. The heroes are handsome and tough, and the heroines are beautiful and tough as well. The action is hard-hitting, edge-of-your-seat, can't wait to turn the page to find out what happens next. And the characters that make up Black Eagle Force are characters I want to read about again. (In fact, if they turned this series into a film franchise, I'd be lining up to buy my ticket and popcorn on opening weekend.) In a nutshell, just like the big summer blockbusters, this book is FUN.

It's not a deep character study of anguished souls told in dark dreary scenes for readers that spend their movie time in small art house theaters. It's a swashbuckling action filled yarn about a special operations force that engages the enemies of our country with the newest technology and weapons, combined with utmost training, bravery, and commitment to their missions. But the book is not all action, the authors also do a great job of developing the characters so you care about them when they enter the thick of battle.

Another reason I compare this to the summer blockbusters rather than the indie art house films is that it is a bit predictable in parts. By this, I mean, you see some relationships coming, and as I said in the beginning, the characters are good looking, tough as nails, highly trained, and so on. When you go to a summer blockbuster, you know the hero is a stud, he'll get the beautiful woman, and he'll kick butt throughout the film. That's what you get with "Eye of the Storm.

5.0 out of 5 stars Black Eagle Force:eye of the storm- Addictive Book June 25, 2011
Format:Paperback
Authors Ken Farmer and Buck Stienke have done it to their readers!!
Once you pick up this book and open it up, you DO NOT want to put it down. They have provided the untimate techno-thriller, with something for everyone, young and old alike. Strong characters and a up-to-date plot, and lots and lots of action. I am looking forward to the next installment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Black Eagle Force October 14, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Black Eagle Force written for the Military man/woman if you like novels about war and current things happening with our southern boarders the book flows from start to finish. at times I felt like I was reading what was going on in the news.Ken and Buck write with so much detail you can almost see what is going on like a movie in your head.you can also tell these two men we're never forgot there Military roots and did fine research for character building and weapons use.I also loved the the way they throw mother nature into the mix as if these S/F TROOPS have enough to deal with after 25 years in the ARMY myself it was joy to see this kind of writteing again though I was not S/F if I were these are the guys I would have loved to march with.

5.0 out of 5 stars A uniquely-rich, masterpiece of storytelling July 10, 2012
Format:Perfect Paperback
This is a novel with the power of seduction rivaled only by lust itself. Be warned that it may gently draw you in until you can't let go, whether you want to or not.

A uniquely-rich, military-action adventure novel, one of its most striking qualities is its incessant ability to deceive you into thinking you're reading some sort of factual account from the annals of American crime history.

Several underpinning stories of international conflict are told in order to provide a foundational underbelly for the existence of a US Delta Force-style of tier one, special counter-terrorists team known as Black Eagle Force whose ultimate mission is to take down Javier Cojone, a Pablo Escobar-esque Mexican arms dealer, white slaver and drug lord. The story develops with all the requisite objectives, conflicts and antagonistic forces one would expect from a military action novel, but does so with such rich development of characters that you may ask yourself how fiction can be so convincing when it is by its very nature devoid of facts. Black Eagle Force is written with such aplomb (and never gratuitously) that you may also find yourself believing that everything written between the covers surely happened to somebody, somewhere, at sometime (or perhaps should).

"Black Eagle Force: Eye Of The Storm" is a masterpiece of storytelling and may become the surprise elite of American military novels. You don't read this book, you experience it and if you're concerned about your imaginational capacity to absorb it, don't be. Any deficit in your imagination is negated by the sheer storytelling brilliance of writers, Farmer and Stienke. Black Eagle Force is a must-read for all those who are fascinated by (or even remotely curious about) the amaranthine conflict between the international powers of good and evil within the deep, dark underworld that remains omnipresent in our every day lives.

5.0 out of 5 stars BLACK EAGLE FORCE Eye of the Storm February 28, 2012
Format:Perfect Paperback
Lets hope this one gets posted because I have a lot to say about this book. What a read. From the first page you are hooked and will not want to stop until the last word is read. You get drawn in to the point you feel like you are right there on the Black Eagle Force team. Before you know it the characters all become fimilar by name like you have known them personally. I really like the way they go back to the begining of the ranch "The Eagle Nest". Gives you the feeling almost like your family through out the book and how the family was wiped out by that thug who wanted to be Napolean, Santa Anna. Oh yea in real life who shot all prisioners at the Alamo and San Jacento too. While when some of them who gave no mercy were captured they would fall to their knees and whine for mercy. That is the real history of that but back to the novel, one of the sons was able to get away and have children who had children keeping the ranch in the family to present day. So when the family comes under seige in present day you feel the history of the place. Like James Michener does when he writes a book.
Some of the drug cartel people bring a truck load of people across the Reo Grand on to the ranch and murder them and so begains the action when the one son who had been out on the ranch checking new born calfs saw what was going on and tried to help the family. The family were well prepaired as history had taught them to be and the battle begins with only themselves at first. I'm going to read this book again as soon as I get it away from my sister. It is just written so anyone can read it and no profanity so the kids can even read it. It's like that movie Red Dawn I make my grandkids watch every summer. This book is going to be around for a long time.
