Cal Stokes is the main character, and the books start at a time in his life where he is engaged to the woman who is the love of his life, and who actually gets him. He is going through a time where he is out of the marines, hasn't decided what to do with his life yet, knows he could go into the company his dad had built before 9/11 took his parents away from him, but doesn't know what his place would be there. Senseless tragedy rips his life apart, and he finds out just how much the company means to him as home and family as his body heals and his mind demands revenge.
These books, the characters, and definitely pulled me right into them, and I had a hard time putting them down. I haven't finished books this fast in a long time. I was amazed and delighted to find that this is the beginning of a series that has just seen the 13th book published, plus other series and short stories by the same author. I'm really a big fan now, and can see a lot of great reading in front of me. It is also wonderful to be able to revel in such patriotism and comradeship at a time when it is sorely needed.
Large plot holes, but not damaging to the central fight
No character development - specifically for the reason that the good guys are marines - and therefore already fully developed, feeble attempt in the last book notwithstanding.
Writing on the level of my kids' elementary school chapter books, with very rare curses.
Completely standard plot development in all three books - one of main characters get in trouble. Everybody jumps in to help. Because they are marines they survive super pooper assassination attempt uncovering Terrible Plot in the process. And racing against time they kill all the baddies and save the world and/or American president in the process.
So to sum up:
One star for interesting plots
One star for my deep respect for USMC.
If you are a northern California liberal you might want to take a pass on this series, you won't make it through the first couple of chapters without calling the ACLU and attempting to put the author in prison and demanding Amazon drop the books because of authors "insensitivity" for the mis-understood masses that are just venting because they have not been given that to which they are entitled.
I recommend this series to anyone that has served or worked for those that have been under "leadership" that was anything but. The author has either studied great leaders of the past or was brought up in an environment that taught what Service, Sacrifice and Leadership was all about by example. No other way could he weld the characters together and make it work ... unless he has been there, seen it, and lived it.
Thanks for the reminders of what true love really is and the sacrifice that He and my true brothers have made. My hope is that the rest of the series will help re-kindle the awareness and responsibility we have been given as we watch the characters grow and although the situations may not be the same, may we look for that which is "just" and seek to accomplish it in whatever we find ourselves involved, no matter how mundane....no matter the cost.
There's a smattering of grammatical glitches - but it's not endemic. Plus spasmodic filler posing as as character backgrounds scattered throughout each tale.
Book one -
There IS a warning - the first book is written more like a screenplay format with each utterance preceded by the character's name in capital letters (no quotation marks) and then filler content describing the scene. It's just a basic yarn by way of introduction of the series.
Is a bit more 'far-out' in terms of believability - but just hang on and go for the ride.
A rather thin plot - bolstered by side stories and descriptive filler.
