Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Jack Jenson isn’t buying the official story of his brother’s death. There is no way that daredevil, deathdefying Troy went overboard from a fishing boat while the rest of the crew was left unscathed. To find the truth, Jack walks away from his job as a stock trader and heads for Alaska. He soon discovers Troy’s hidden life as an operative for a covert intelligence agency that is blurring the line between protecting national security and thwarting rule of law. Pursued by agency gunmen, Jack races to uncover the truth about Troy’s death and to continue his efforts to stop a terrorist plot threatening thousands of lives. Frey employs conservative and liberal extremes to illustrate ethical issues surrounding covert operations, maintaining a center line with politically stereotyped characters from both sides, whose dialogue brings humor to the political divide. Don’t look for in-depth analysis here. The ethical dilemmas hinge on oftdebated topics. Fortunately, Frey keeps the suspense tight, and film-worthy action sequences make it prime vacation reading for espionage lovers. — Christine Tran

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This was a very fast paced read about a Wall Street CEO and his two sons. Bill Jensen is an extremely patriotic right wing man & is also a member of a counter intelligence agency, Red Cell Seven. His biological son, Troy , has disappeared off an Alaskan crab trawler and his adopted son, Jack, is determined to find his brother. During his search Jack discovers much about the fanatic members of Red Cell Seven who put country above everything including family.

He also uncovers a plot to assassinate the current liberal President of the United States by members of the cell.

"Arctic Fire" is a fast read but by the end...there were several loose ends that had not been resolved and the reader was left hanging. I enjoyed most of Frey's other books more than this one.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
"Arctic Fire" is almost a formulaic action thriller. We have the big conspiracy, the innocent victims, the honest guy on the inside trying to put things right, and just about non-stop action. It may be a formula, but it's a formula that works, and it works in Arctic Fire.

The action moves from Mexico to Alaska to the U.S. East Coast and several other locales, with the important parts of the story taking place in Alaska. The descriptions and local color are excellent, as is the writing overall. The plot is compelling and the pace is unrelenting. If you like a good thriller with some military aspects, you'll certainly enjoy this book.

There are a couple of things to note. For one, it's not especially clear who the protagonist is. Is it Jack, the Wall Street guy turned action-adventure hero? Seemingly so. But is it really Troy, who appears briefly at the start of the novel and then disappears? Possibly. Especially because of the ending.

I'm not going to put spoilers in this review. But let's just say that the ending is ... strange. And jarringly unsatisfactory. The author wraps up the story very nicely, then puts in a last chapter that undoes just about everything and leaves the reader wondering. Certainly, it's a setup for a sequel, and I would love to read it. But it's ... well ... you just have to read it for yourself, but as I promised, I won't spoil a very big surprise by revealing it here.

I often close reviews with the question, "Should you read this book?" Yes, you should, and you should be prepared for a huge shock at the conclusion.

Artic Fire is a total waste of money spent and time wasted reading it.
The characters are crude cartoons of people from bad tv shows. There are no believable or likable characters. It reads like a bad Vince Flynn story or the last season of 24.
The ending is neither believable nor well written.
Don't waste your time or money on this.
I intend to send this back for a refund, something I have never done before.

A lot of " super-spy" attempted to bring real action to the reader. However, you have to turn back pages to follow the script, and even then the story does not flow. Add to this the fact that the ending I totally out of nowhere, and the story goes down as one that you are glad was not expensive. The author is obviously attempting to start a series, but he loses it with his inability to join thoughts from one chapter to another, and finalizes his failure by how he handles the hero.

I'm glad that I only spent $5.00 on the Kindle edition. This book stinks! The writing is sophomoric, the character development is juvenile and the plot (?) is utterly ridiculous. Stephen Frey is permanently off of my author list. The only reason that I finished the book was to be able to honestly review it. My verdict - save your money! You will be ahead with the 0.1% interest that your bank will give you.

I could not finish it. After the third story of torture, I gave up. Not for me.
The author also tends to tell you the same thing, over and over. I'm done with this writer. No one but one of his friends or family could have given this a 5 star review.

I almost never post reviews but I feel compelled to this one time. I can read almost anything, but not drivel. No spoilers here, I refused to invest any more of my life on this book, did not finish. unbelievable characters. One brother the daring, invincible, irresistible, raffish rogue. The other a Metrosexual libtard that can't stand his rightard father. Both of them nauseous characters, all three rather. Lucky bro' apparently gets self killed being unlucky...wha??? Metro bro suddenly grows a pair because he steps in front of a car. Gets a gun and sets out to find his brother that everyone agrees is dead. But that van for some unknown reason makes him think suspicious. The logical result of course is to become a badA and run to Alaska to save his dead bro and bring down the right wing irrational intelligence community. This drivel gave me a headache...a total waste of life I will never get back. If the next book I read is this bad I will probably rip my eyes out to protect my sanity. I almost tossed my Kindle in the trash before I remembered I could just delete this piece. Then I sanitized my keypad for even giving enough effort to review it. Cleaning my toenails would have more appeal than this read. Seriously, if they looked into how to do it, this book would be more effective in Guantanamo than waterboarding, really cruel and unusual punishment.
