"John Mangan's Into a Dark Frontier is cut from same cloth as the best of Vince Flynn and Brad Thor, a story written with authority and military authenticity. It's a harsh look at a continent-wide battlefield, waged not only for land but also for the heart of freedom. Timely and exciting." ―James Rollins, New York Times best-selling author
"John Mangan's Into a Dark Frontier is a powerful, realistic, and daringly unique international thriller. Its near-future plotline is as brilliantly crafted as it is dark and foreboding, and the action scenes are visceral and utterly thrilling. Tormented but able Slade Crawford is a perfect anti-hero to root for, and Into a Dark Frontier is a surefire winner of a debut." ―Mark Greaney, #1 New York Times best-selling author
"A riveting imagined what-if so real you wonder if it might even be possible. Tense, intelligent, harsh, and surprising, this thrill ride is drum tight in its execution.” ―Steve Berry, New York Times best-selling author
"Into a Dark Frontier is an international thriller of rare depth and complexity that would make the likes of John Le Carre and Robert Ludlum proud. But John Mangan goes both of them one better by injecting into the mix a loner hero with a gunfighter mentality fit for taming continents as well as frontiers, with Africa subbing for the Old West. A vision splendidly realized and tale wondrously executed." ―Jon Land, USA Today bestselling author
“Mangan’s debut reads like he couldn’t get the words out and onto the page fast enough, which translates into a…blazingly fast and fun action thriller.” ―Publishers Weekly
"John Mangan’s Into a Dark Frontier plunges the reader into the chaos of an African continent where anarchy reigns. A near-futuristic scenario, one that could really emerge. Expect an overdose of action and danger that careens off the scales.” ―Robert K. Tanenbaum, New York Times best-selling author
"Its relentless opening chase sets the tone for Into a Dark Frontier, a winner for fans of techno-action novels. After eight deployments as a combat rescue pilot, its author knows what he's writing about and does so with speed and insider details." ―David Morrell, New York Times best-selling author
"Into a Dark Frontier is a hell of a debut novel with a terrifying plot and relentless action that made sure the only time I wasn’t turning pages was when I was looking over my shoulder." ―Joshua Hood, author of Clear by Fire and Warning Order

Thoroughly enjoyed this book from the very first page. Read it in one long sitting. Didn't want to put it down. Read it because I'm going to a book-signing for this author later in the month. I bought this book Kindle-style for $.99. When I meet the author, I'm going to buy the hard-copy, so I can share with friends. I'm very versed reading the "End of the World/Zombie Apocalypse" type books. Burned out, really. This book possesses a GREAT story. The action is told succinctly, rhythmically almost, without the blow-by-blow, pages long descriptions that get moronically tiresome. Even though the story unfolds over a few months time, its pace resembles the "Dan Brown", "24 hour" pace that kept me glued to the pages. Recommend the book? Oh Yeah! I'm already looking forward to the 2nd book in what looks to be a series about to flower. Please don't keep me waiting too long!!!
Fleeing an America that has sacrificed privacy for a false safety in the war on terror, the main character makes for Africa to take up a lucrative contract guarding settlers. Danger, mysteries, and enemies at every turn the adventure heightens once the trek into the dark continent begins.
You will feel for the characters and understand their plight, hate the villains and others who blatantly take advantage of the loss of civilization.
At the end of the book you will desperately want the next edition while probably have been surprised how possible the story laid out actually is!
Loved it. If you are a fan of the Jack Reacher novels, this is for you!
I am looking forward to the movie (!) and to the further adventures of Slade Crawford.
