Good characters and story.
MilitaryMan
I like his story telling in making characters live and connect with the readers in both noble and profane ways.

The story grabs your attention from the very beginning and keeps it all the way through.

When I finished Mr. Edwards first book ('Torpedo') I felt that I had read literally the BEST, most realistic techno-thriller of the previous decade. I've read quite a few books since then, and I maintain that my initial opinion was right on. Nobody can really write with the sense of immediacy and urgency like someone who has literally 'been there, done that'. 'Torpedo' was and still is one of my all-time favorite military thrillers. In a word: the book is simply Brilliant.

I have waited--sometimes patiently--most often impatiently--for Mr. Edwards follow-up. I KNEW immediately that the book had a LOT to live up to...and sometimes that either can work for you or against. In this case, I was worried that with his first novel being SO good, trying to live up to or making the attempt to out DO it seemed difficult at best...at least it seemed so to me. I am thrilled to say that 'The Seventh Angel' lived up to ALL of my expectations and exceeded them from beginning to end.

The prologue itself was a nail-biter--what a great way to start this story off...and it only got better. Some of the subject matter in the book isn't easy to deal with. Face it: its easier knowing that despite the threat of hostility during the Cold War, the Soviet Union had MUCH better control over its own stockpile of nuclear weapons and weapons-grade material than it has since its collapse in the early 90's. The Cold, hard truth of the matter is chilling to say the least: There is SO MUCH of this material and weapons either not being properly cared for and watched over or even accounted FOR that it ought to give us ALL nightmares for years to come. WHO is keeping track of it all--and--keep in mind, there is a LOT to keep track of. What could possibly go wrong?

First, I enjoyed this book. A lot. I also enjoyed the first one, Sea of Shadows though one needn't have read the first book; they are pretty standalone. The author has a clean and direct style that makes it an easy read. I had a very high pages/minute rate which allowed me to really stay wrapped up in the story. The pacing is also fast as each scene/chapter is rarely more than a handful of pages. Now, these would not necessarily be good things, but for this book and its subject matter and being a military-techno-thriller, it is perfect.

In the interest of full disclosure, I, like the author, am a former technician in the US Navy. I explained to a friend that this book really scratched itches I didn't know I had and was every bit the guilty pleasure that a bodice-ripper can be to others.

The action is intense, the characters are well-drawn and the stakes are high but not implausibly so. That last part can get a little sketchy. The only real complaint I could offer is that some of the situations are quite contrived. I will explain briefly in the least spoilery way I can: In this book, as in the first one mentioned earlier, situations conspire to make one Captain and his amazing Destroyer to save the day. Great storytelling no doubt, and I loved every minute of it. However, where I found a part of my brain nagging me was just at how unlikely and forced it was. The author clearly loves and knows US destroyers but I believe the capabilities of our hero's ship is greatly exaggerated and that the story would have been better served--and more believable/realistic--had a submarine been used instead. It is clear the author knew that as well as he created a way to prevent any submarine from being sent in, leaving it to our hero-captain and his stealthy destroyer to come to the rescue.

I read this on my Kindle and had no issues with formatting, etc.

I will be purchasing the author's next work when available.

I just finished reading the book and I have to say it is GOOD.

As a dyed-in-the-wool Milporn Geek, this book fell right in line with my expectations. I was drawn through the book as opposed to being pushed.. my way of putting the fact I didn't want to put it down. Work and life in general saw that I had to, occasionally, but I'd fight my way back to it - ASAP.

Mr. Edwards did a great job of drawing the scenes in my minds-eye and it was all very vivid and UNDERSTANDABLE. I enjoy the technology immensely and would have enjoyed a little more techno-in-my thriller but overall it was very well handled.

GOOD JOB, Mr. Edwards!

May I call you Jeff now?

;-)

The reason this book got five stars from me was because there is no ten star rating available. Once again, former USN Chief Edwards entralls us with an exciting tale of the modern Navy going in harms way, kinda like real life only we never hear about a lot of it. The USS Towers, which has been repaired after almost ending up in Davy Jones locker in Mr. Edwards first novel Torpedo (if you haven't read it yet, you should but don't need to to enjoy this book), is back, along with Commander (ship's captain) Bowie and sonar Chief McPherson. This time they're dealing with a lunatic rebel Russian governor who breaks away his province and takes control of a nuclear russian submarine armed with ICBM's with nuclear warheads. They also have to deal with a civilian tech rep. for a proto-type underwater robot who dislikes the military but makes it clear she puts up with the Navy and it's people simply because her company pays her to. The way the author weaves in backstories of the main characters, yet maintains a fast paced, exciting story is just fantastic. He goes into just enough detail on weapons and systems to help with the story but not so much as to befuddle the average reader. I had trouble finding a spot in the story where I felt I could quit reading for awhile and not spend the next twenty hours wondering what would happen next. I stayed up way too late several nights saying "I'll just read ONE more chapter, then go to bed".
If I have one complaint about this book, it would simply be the lack of my beloved LAMP's helos in this story. They played a prominent part in Torpedo and having spent seven years active Navy (former AX2) the last three with HSL-33 which was a LAMP's squadron, I had looked forward to reading about my modern day counterparts in this book.
