Having said all of that, it wasn't that bad of a book, certainly more than I could ever produce. It just wasn't a great book.
Amir starts out as a proud military hero and comes back home and snaps in the face of a racist attack on his father which ultimately results in him become a heartless terrorist.
As the story unfolds, Logan attempts to stop Amir, to understand who is behind these terrorist attacks and, in the process, begins to feel the need to form relationships again.
While the story was entertaining, it was not very believable. Logan’s “unit” is made up of some of his trainees at a Marine camp that he is working at. I have a hard time believing that such inexperienced soldiers would be relied upon so heavily in trying to stop a major terrorist attack. There are many other unbelievable decisions, I won’t detail them so as to avoid spoilers.
As a first novel, I think this was a good start and the author shows a great deal of potential. That being said, don’t expect a detailed, believable story of trying to stop a terrorist attack. However, if you are willing to suspend belief, Debt of Fear is quick read, with an entertaining story.
My one main complaint was the editing! He's gotta find a new editor to help with punctuation and wording and grammar! Other than that, it was a fulfilling book!
Debt of Fear had me hooked from the very beginning. This is the second book I've read by Reid, and while I think I liked The Beyond Experience better, this one is still one heck of a fun ride. I know next to nothing about the military, but Reid does an excellent job building the tension and then bringing it to a boiling point.
One of things I like best about his writing are the characters. Reid writes characters who feel like real people that you genuinely care about. In particular, the character arc for one of the terrorists is excellent. He's a complex person that you like and root for at the beginning of the story, but he changes so drastically over the course of the story that my emotions were all over the place for him by the end. The protagonist is also a likable hero with a complex history. While I loved all the action, I think the character interactions were some of my favorite parts of the book.
I'm going to be reading Sins of the Father next, which is book 2 in the series. I've heard really good things about it, so I'm super excited to continue the story. If you like action thrillers with great characters, this one is definitely for you.
The reason this is not five stars was because of poor editing. The editor acted like they didn't know what a comma was for.
Example: Dubs can you ever be serious?
There were also a few instances where paragraph indent an formatting needed help but it was a lesser issue than the punctuation. If the author got an editor and get his punctuation fixed, this will be a five-star book. As it stands, it is difficult to read at times.

Very difficult to suspend disbelief in it, too many unlikely scenarios.Read more
