I am an avid fan of terrrorist thrillers and I found this to be an exciting action-packed page-turner.
In her first novel, Taylor Wilmering has captured the essence of what I believe we may face from both foreign and home-grown terrorist attacks, now and in the future. Not complex sensational attacks like 9/11, but coordinated local assaults on innocent civilians in a camapign to create generalized chaos and undermine our way of life.
Well written and tasteful. Read it, you won't be disappointed.
When she describes interaction between characters however she tends towards overly descriptive language which does not fit with the "just the facts" tone set in the rest of her writing. A good editor could make this book a good deal better. This was a much better book near the end when there were fewer descriptors of actions such as meaningful glances and knowing nods, and that gives me reason to look forward to future work by the author.
The book starts out with an info dump, some of it with faulty timelines, and that might turn off those who read the Kindle sample first. It gets better, though, so that it not indicative of the rest of the book.
The author obviously did quite a bit of research in the writing of the book to make sure what she wrote is either accurate or could be accurate given the situation. While I think the planning aspects of various operations were a little backyard football ("hike me the ball and go deep") with extremely basic planning done on the fly, I think the bulk of the book was realistic and believable.
This is the author's first book, and if this is an indication of her writing abilities, I think she will find success as an author.
This is a wonderful, thought provoking book concerning terrorism and what happens when sleeper cells are activated by their handlers. The idea that there are "terrorists among us" is, in my opinion, not something that should be discounted as fiction. This remarkable effort by Taylor Wilmering starts out quickly and picks up the pace as it moves relentlessly toward its ending while sweeping you along as if you are an unwilling rubbernecker at a train wreck. The book is very well written, suspenseful and realistic and will indeed have you turning pages, unwilling to put it down. Bravo, for a real winner from this wonderfully talented young author. 4 1/2 stars from me.

Terror is a serious and dangerous thing. The story is something that could happen, and as a scenario for a book is good but is written in a very naive way. Read morePublished 17 months ago by yanper

While reading this, the one realization that kept sticking out at me was how young the writer was in conjunction to how much legwork had gone into the research of the book. Read morePublished on October 28, 2013 by Sarah Alban
