Fasten your seatbelt and prepare for another wild ride into the world of the not so distant future. Once again, Mr Watts takes you into the world of his imagination. With a tale so real, it seems you are watching world events as they could be. While this is the next in his series, it is easily read as a standalone novel. Of course, by reading “The War Planners” first, you will enjoy it even more.
“The War Stage” is a gritty, tightly woven tale of how things might actually happen. Mr Watts characters are once again well constructed, very believable, and fully developed right from the first pages. If you are new to Mr Watts’ work, plan on losing a little sleep. You just won't be able to put the book down: this is a real page turner.
In this, the second in The Blackout War Series, THE WAR STAGE catches us up with the rest of the world (and supporting characters), giving insight into just what was transpiring elsewhere during the dangerous and clandestine Red Cell Operation. Introducing us to David's brother and former SEAL, Chase. His CIA boss Elliott. And Chase's love interest, and CIA operative Lisa Parker - as well as David & Chase's father, Admiral Manning.
The pieces are set in place, making for a more complete picture. Intrigue and international deception lurk at every corner. And in the midst of David's constant warnings (which not enough people seem attentive to), things look to be getting very interesting indeed - right at book's end. Meaning Book 3 is sure to be a rocking time. The only question is, "At whose expense?"
Some of the narrative is a bit heavy handed on the economics of it all, but it's still pretty well explained.
The action later on is well done and pretty plausible. I'm looking forward to the third, and I assume final, book in the series, set to come out in late 2016 or early '17.
Setting this aside, I enjoyed this second novel in the series and it held my interest throughout. RJB.
