Anyone who has previously read Mr. Dixon's short stories (Domino Lady, The Spider) or graphic novels (The Punisher, Savage Sword of Conan) will enjoy this full size, tail kicking, bad guy killing event. If this is your first time; find a comfortable chair, pour a stiff drink and prepare for an awesome experience. If you enjoy Monster Hunters International, Steve McQueen movies and automatic weapons fire then this is definitely for you.

Buy it! You won't regret it.

Don't waste your money if you seek authenticity...

I spent a career in the Navy. This book lacks authenticity and is unbelievable on many fronts. The author did not do his due diligence in researching basic Navy life, Navy rank/rate structure, let alone basic geography.

At one point he has a primary character leaving Virginia Beach, VA and travelling "over the Chesapeake Bay Bridge to Delaware." While that might be believable from Washington DC or Baltimore, it is not feasible from Virginia Beach in the time profile given. More believable would be going from VA Beach to Maryland's eastern shore via the Chesapeake Tunnel/Bridge.

There is a supposed "best friend" relationship between two main characters - an E-6 and an E-8 who were on the same career trajectory as AO's (on the USS Lexington, no less, a ship decommissioned in 1991, ~20 yrs before the timeline of this book) and best friends before helping each other coast through BUD/S, subsequently joining the Teams. Not likely. BUD/S isn't a buddy system, not in that sense.

Next problem - these same two characters go directly from SQT to Seal Team SIX. I don't care how senior your rate/rank is, you don't go directly from BUD/S to VI. Doesn't happen.

He calls an E-3 a Seaman Apprentice (inaccurate, E-3 is a Seaman, E-2 is a Seaman Apprentice).

He refers to "ratings" in a context to infer seniority. In the Navy rate refers to an enlisted sailor's pay grade (E1 through E9). Rating refers to their job designation, or occupation. For instance, an E-5 (Petty Officer 2nd Class) who is qualified as a Gunner's Mate (GM) rating, would be a referred to as a GM2. GM is his rating, nothing to do with his rate or seniority. A rating badge, however, depicts both rate and rating together.

I 've read a great many books about the Navy SEAL`s and I spent 11 years on active duty in the Navy and this book is OK but there were several things I just couldn't get past. The fact that the team is made up of E-2, E-3 & E-4`s is not believable for anyone that understands the way that any of tier 1 units works. Other then that I liked the way the book progressed but the author should have done a lot more research on the Navy and the SEAL`s in particular.

Not a sparkly vampire in sight...I have been a fan of Chuck Dixons work since his tenure on the Batman titles on the 90s. This is the prose novel I have been waiting for. Good action packed hardcore military fiction. A true steal at less than a dollar. Crisp crackling dialogue, intriguing plot, and of course, Chucks trademark action sequences, all without reading like a Janes guide. Get it now.

Having Chuck Dixon write a book about Seal Team Six has to be the greatest idea since breathing air! Dixon's plots are spellbinding and his characters are real and engaging. Once you read the first word on the first page, you'll be sucked in and you won't want to eat, drink, sleep, answer the phone or have sex until you read the last word on the last page, then be waiting impatiently for more!

I've loved Chuck Dixon's comic book writing since the 1980's. This is the first time I've read his prose, and it is a winner. As other reviewers have said, it is lean and mean without a single wasted word. Best of all, it feels authentic, at least to this non-vet. The only reason it didn't get 5 stars was because the story is so short. But as they say, always leave 'em wanting more, and Chuck has done that in spades. I can't wait for his first full-length novel. Brad Thor and Vince Flynn are going to have some company on the best-seller lists!

A mini-novel rather than a epic but for this price who is complaining?

A speed-run of a book that gets to the point and does not get side-tracked with subplots. Those looking for deep espionage will be disappointed but fans of the TV series The Unit will lap it up. The action sequences are brilliantly described and the while the characters not fleshed out in real depth, the dialogue is full of verbal sparring and shorthand between trusted team members that feels really authentic.

If this is part of ongoing series, I look forward to the next.

First of all, let me say that for a $0.99 Kindle book, it isn't a bad deal. That being said, if you're looking for Tom Clancey, Brad Thor, or Vince Flynn realism and factually accurate storytelling, this isn't the book for.you. The author does a decent job with forming a picture in your mind with his words. What is lacking though is reality. I know its a work of fiction, but to be honest, this fiction goes a little to the extreme. The SEALs are depicted as bloodthirsty warriors who have no regard for the military rules which govern them. The story shows men with a blatant disregard for human life, going as far as walking by enemy combatants who have been shot and injured and double tapping them in the head. That, in and withof itself, is a blatant disregard for Geneva Convention rules. Does that kind of thing happen? Quite possibly, but more than likely not. Why kill them when they can be debriefed for Intel. Some of the authors information regarding our current military is grossly inaccurate. The book states that a couple of the SEALs are stationed on the USS Lexington, an aircraft carrier.The Lexington was an Essex class aircraft carrier that was decommisioned in 1991 and is currently a floating museum in Corpus Christi, TX. For a book that supposedly starts with the killing of Osama Bin Laden, this fact can not be overlooked. Another factual error is that SEAL Team Six, or DEVGRU, has a great number of E-2 and E-3's serving on the team as operators. Wrong. At the very least they would be E-4 Third Class Petty Officers. More factual errors regarding DEVGRU is that the men are tasked to DEVGRU immediately after completing BUD/S. Wrong once again.Read more ›

What happened to #3 in the series?
I asked Amazon about it and they had no idea. They said to contact the publisher and ask them. I would guess it is just delayed.
