To a degree I haven't found in many other thriller writer's work, with the exception of John LeCarre, he fleshes out all his characters with real feelings and real lives. He also has an engaging sense of humor throughout some of the most imagination-probing action I've yet read. I also like the fact that he has a sense of freedom when it comes to the plot and with working scenes and new unexpected characters into the mix.
This book is a blend of traditional military thriller and scifi and it works. There are no cardboard figures here, so pay attention. I recommend it for anyone who needs an absorbing, exciting read that leaves you with a satisfying lift at the end. Of course, not all the questions are answered. I've got many I'm sure he'll answer in the next installment.
I also love stories about elite teams of experienced commandos. In this respcet, some parts of this book reminded me of the many Navy SEAL combat books of Richard Marcinko that I have read and reviewed. The colorful names given these "Nightstalkers" (Moms, Nada, Kirk etc)was also unique and interesting.
In conclusion, if you like adult science fiction stories filled with action you will want to read this book.
Rating: 4 Stars. Joseph J. Truncale (Author: Season of the Warrior: A poetic tribute to warriors)
Best-selling author Bob Mayer combines two of the most popular fiction genres — military special operations and science fiction — in this story of an ultra covert operations team called the Nightstalkers trying to contain the spread of glowing balls of energy called “Fireflies” from dimensional rifts created by foolhardy scientists. A West Point graduate and former Green Beret, Mayer writes knowingly of spec ops and weaponry, but avoids the false machismo found in many “commando” books. He not only laces his story with wry observations and outright laughs, he creates characters who, despite being highly trained killing machines, are still a bit vulnerable and even whacky — pretty much as you would find in real life. Plus the leader of this group isn’t some macho guy, but a tall, attractive woman nicknamed Moms.
In the first of a three book series, the Nightstalkers find themselves trying to contain the spread of Fireflies in an extremely wealthy suburb called the Senators Club. Failing at their attempt to blend into such a rarefied atmosphere, the Nightstalkers unwillingly adopt a neighborhood teenage fireball named Scout who opens their eyes to the alien lifestyle of the uber-wealthy one percent. The result is a fun and thrilling reading experience.
