Book Description

Readers call the D-BOYS series:
"a high-octane adrenaline-fueled action thrill-ride" ... "pure action" ... "one of the best action thrillers of this year (or any year for that matter)" ... "a riveting, fast paced classic!!" ... "The Best Techno Military Thriller I have read!" ... "Up there with Clancy and W.E.B. Griffin" ... "Awesome!" ... "Gripping" ... "Edge of your seat action" ... "What a wild ride!!! I simply could not put this book down" ... "has a real humanity and philosophical side as well" ... "spectacular in so many ways" ... "hi-tech and action in one well-rounded explosive thriller..."

The world's most elite counter-terrorist operators
A cyber-security guru suddenly getting shot at and blown up rather more than usual
And nuclear-armed terrorists rolling with impunity through a lawless and brutal virtual world

The year is now. Islamist terrorists hack into America's most sensitive defense networks, launch chemical weapons attacks on Western cities, and stage a raid on the vulnerable nuclear weapons storage facilities in Pakistan. They are using a massively-multiplayer online video game (or "virtual world") as a platform for planning and rehearsing their attacks - forcing a squad of supremely elite Delta Force operators (reinforced by an info-security expert from the Department of Homeland Security) to go insidethe game to fight them.

But the fight only begins there. Get ready for breath-stealing action in every known battlespace - clockwork urban safehouse takedowns, combat helicopter assaults, brutal ambushes in the trackless mountains, waterborne SEAL team ops, precision close-quarters battle sequences, and CheyTac Intervention sniper rifle systems that can kill you from a mile and a half away.

These weapons, tactics, tech, and 21st-century warriors will be unlike anything you've ever read.

The D-Boys return in COUNTER-ASSAULT - the second salvo in Michael Stephen Fuchs' series of high-concept, high-tech special operations military adventure novels.

5.0 out of 5 stars An exciting combination of The Matrix & The Expendables! December 29, 2011
By Coach D
Format:Kindle Edition
First off, check out my "see all my Reviews". This way you will know where I am coming from when I give D-Boys a good review.

I was first introduced to the D-Boys way back in March or April via the preview (Smashwords & Amazon). I e-mailed the author to let him know how much I enjoyed the preview, and that I could not wait to read the complete book. The wait turned out to be several months, but Michael finally got pass his publisher problems and I had my chance to read the entire book! I really enjoyed reading this book. D-Boys is a unique blend of an action story & a hi-tech story merged together. Michael does an excellent job of portraying the Delta Force soldiers as more than just the typical stereotype image of muscle bound shooters. The D-Boys are dedicated, educated, and extremely well trained. The D-Boys team up with a Homeland Security computer expert and together they battle terrorists in both the real world and in cyber-space. The D-Boys is like a weird & exciting combination of the films The Expendables (Three-Disc Blu-ray/DVD Combo + Digital Copy) and The Matrix [Blu-ray].

In D-Boys the terrorist play a massively multi-player first person shooter online video game called AfterWar. They use this synthetic world of AfterWar to communicate with each other world-wide (undetected), transfer funds, and to practice takedowns of key facilities. Pretty clever. The government can't just shut it down because there is no one server. The terrorists used malicious code built into a special weapons mod in the AfterWar game to "hijack" user's PCs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Innovative July 16, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was a very fast paced well written book. It is about time a book id'ed a concept of utilizing the virtual world in conjunction with the real world to create a situation where the enemy aren't idiots and have adapted to the world around them and created a means of training, communication and movement of funds that bypass conventional means.

I strongly recommend this book for readers who want a strong story with an innovative concept that shows both sides are more then just trigger pulling bullet magnets.

Very well done!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good blend of action and cyberwar January 11, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The first installment of D-Boys is a good blend of cyberwar, online gaming, and military action. Very believable, good character development, and paints a picture of what modern warfare could be (or maybe already is) evolving into. The story of front-line, deniable, highly trained operatives protecting the country and the introduction of the growing cyber linkage to warfare is very good. If you like high tech, military action, and a blend of technology, this will be of interest.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Outstanding Read from MSF October 30, 2013
By JimO
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I "accidentally" came across MSF's books by purchasing Arisen Book 1, then could not read them fast enough. D-Boys is another outstanding story, it was not what I thought it was going to be, but was nearly impossible to put down. If you are a gamer, Special Ops fan, or just believe in America-this book is for you. It is fast paced, well written, and is believable.
When I found out a portion of the sales support Special Operations Warrior Foundation, I was even happier I purchased it.

MSF-Keep them coming and we will keep reading them!

Awesome book. As a developer who works in IT Security and loves books about special ops, this book combined it all. He definitely did his research on special operations and other clandestine organizations in this book. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone.

The only one bad thing in this book is he starts to use to many acronyms which I tend to forget what they stand for. But very realistic as acronyms are used in the real world, where if you're not apart of that world you will think people are talking in another language.

5.0 out of 5 stars D-Boys July 20, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really liked the story, people, video, and war-games. Fast moving scary adventure. Too many acronyms but that's the way the geopolitical/military combine operates.(There is a Glossary at the end if you want the full names of the organizations or game short-hand). Weaponry is high-tech and futuristic so pretty much beyond my ken. All in all I would recommend this book to anyone who likes this genre. I have already recommended it to my adult son who is an EverQuest and sci fy buff.
