Political and economic changes are happening like fast moving hurricanes, obliterating everything in their paths. Nothing will remain the same. It will be an unrecognizable landscape. The entire planet will have a new identity. For years the people clamored that the government should take care of them, supply their every need. Be careful what you ask for, Charlotte, because the end result may not be very pretty. Thirty eight years from now residents of the Chicago Metroplex are faced with the horrors of this clamoring. The world is now run by the One State. They are in control, they supply and run everything. However, there are those who would oppose the One State, who would stand up for Truth. The One State's opposition is Fundamentalists from all religions. Bible believing Christians are considered terrorists of the most dangerous kind.

Dave and Jen Williams find themselves in the cross-hair of the One State's paramilitary forces who have engaged in a War of Attrition in the Chicago Metroplex. Dave Williams, a.k.a. Calamity Kid, has risen to the number two most wanted of the Federal Bureau of Terrorism since he and his sister, a.k.a. egirl, has joined the Body of Christ ten months prior. The FBT marshals its forces in a cleverly designed manhunt through the Lost Wards of the Metroplex. In a desperate race to stay one step ahead of Nasty Nero's henchmen, Calamity Kid and company is joined by a renegade first generation genetically engineered woman warrior. The new girl is apparently on the run from the One State and branded a traitor--or is she in fact a double agent?

Pull on a pair of kevlar spandex and prepare for the ride of your life. Frank Creed's War of Attrition delivers heart pumping action at the speed of light.

Frank Creed is on a roll! He remains spot-on in his Bible doctrine, but if Volume 1 was a fast ride, this is one is souped-up. The hero and heroine go deeper into iniquity's lair, carrying the Good Fight to the enemy (much to the evil enemy's discomfiture). The battle becomes more serious, and way more dangerous. Actually, towards the end the story passed me by, leaving me in a cloud of dust. I really thought Mr. Creed had just gone off the rails entirely. But when I looked at the back of the book (relax, no "Spoiler Alert" is needed here) his note about sources cleared it right up. What he was describing has already been undergoing tests by the U.S. Pentagon's DARPA projects. I can hardly wait to get into Volume 3. Listen, y'all, you won't find a better bargain for your $2.99!

I did enjoy this book. It maintained the jargon and pace of the last one, with new and improved weapons and a new enemy, the Cabul, moving in the backdrop of the One State government. There is also the mysterious "Heartbreaker," a girl who once bested Calamity Kid in online RPG tournaments and now seems to be a worthy opponent to CK in person.

I will admit that I didn't like this one as much as the last one. There was far less Christian content in this one, in the form of people discussing spiritual issues or Bible verses, and I missed that, because without that, sometimes it's almost like reading Die Hard 7/Men in Black/The Matrix mashed together.

There were also a few potential problems for readers that I think I should mention for anyone reading this. I know some people are very liberal about Christians drinking alcohol and using mild curse words, but I will admit this bothers me. I was also disturbed by the violence combined with romance/kissing. It didn't go too far in any way, but I have seen what college kids are writing (and reading). Let's not encourage this, please?

I'll leave that to your own discretion. Besides this, the thing that most concerned me was Calamity Kid's cocky, almost arrogant attitude when going into fights, like he enjoyed a fight and was not feeling all that sorry for the souls he was busy knocking out with "tranqs" and bruising up a bit. Maybe this is a symptom of having fewer older mentors in his life, and perhaps becoming jaded in his life situation, but this was never explored.

So, interesting enough to keep me reading, and probably interesting enough to get me to read the last one, but definitely disappointing for me after the first book. It may be that it was rushed and needed some more refining before it went to press, or this could be a failing of the series. I am hoping the last one will come back and answer all of my concerns. We will see.

I loved this book! It's hard to find good Christian books that will hold my attention but this was absolutely gripping! I couldn't put this whole series down. Full of action and all based around God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. What could be better than kicking arse with the Spirit guiding every crunching kick to the face! Hands down, BRILLIANT!

Technology in our modern world is making leaps and bounds in progress. In Creed's second installment of his Books of the Underground series, War of Attrition, Creed's main character, Calamity Kid, is back with all of his techno-gear and his repressed crew of stalwart Christians, 'Fundis,' living in a world where they are labeled as 'terrorists' simply due to their beliefs. Creed's insight into the progress of cutting edge technology, particularly bio-tech, is uncanny. Fiction he wrote years ago is coming to non-fiction fruition today. I appreciated seeing the evolution of Creed himself from his first installment, Flashpoint, to this follow-up. His original characters grow deeper, and the new ones he introduces are complex, human, sometimes lost, many times imperfect, searching, longing for spiritual fulfillment. His Christian message is loud and clear and never overbearing.

Creed's action sequences fall together well in smooth, attention-holding flow. The comparison to modern graphic novels seems inevitable, but the reality is, Creed's complicated and ambitious vision could not have been simplified into any sort of 'comic book.' Don't be fooled by the action oriented nature of the novel--the action is well used as symbolic of, and catalysts for, the core Christian values he is setting forth for his heroes.

It is Christian speculative fiction, but don't let that narrow category prevent you from reading it. It is so much more--action-filled, sci-fi, philosophical, literary. Ultimately, aside from the preceding, it is just a plain ol' fun novel to read.
