Book Description

Readers call the D-BOYS series:
"a high-octane adrenaline-fueled action thrill-ride" ... "pure action" ... "one of the best action thrillers of this year (or any year for that matter)" ... "a riveting, fast paced classic!!" ... "The Best Techno Military Thriller I have read!" ... "Up there with Clancy and W.E.B. Griffin" ... "Awesome!" ... "Gripping" ... "Edge of your seat action" ... "What a wild ride!!! I simply could not put this book down" ... "has a real humanity and philosophical side as well" ... "spectacular in so many ways" ... "hi-tech and action in one well-rounded explosive thriller..."

The world's most elite counter-terrorist operators
A cyber-security guru suddenly getting shot at and blown up rather more than usual
And nuclear-armed terrorists rolling with impunity through a lawless and brutal virtual world

The year is now. Islamist terrorists hack into America's most sensitive defense networks, launch chemical weapons attacks on Western cities, and stage a raid on the vulnerable nuclear weapons storage facilities in Pakistan. They are using a massively-multiplayer online video game (or "virtual world") as a platform for planning and rehearsing their attacks - forcing a squad of supremely elite Delta Force operators (reinforced by an info-security expert from the Department of Homeland Security) to go insidethe game to fight them.

But the fight only begins there. Get ready for breath-stealing action in every known battlespace - clockwork urban safehouse takedowns, combat helicopter assaults, brutal ambushes in the trackless mountains, waterborne SEAL team ops, precision close-quarters battle sequences, and CheyTac Intervention sniper rifle systems that can kill you from a mile and a half away.

These weapons, tactics, tech, and 21st-century warriors will be unlike anything you've ever read.

The D-Boys return in COUNTER-ASSAULT - the second salvo in Michael Stephen Fuchs' series of high-concept, high-tech special operations military adventure novels.

This book is a devastating blend of everything I look for in a book: action, suspense, poetry, humour, searing intelligence, challenges to reality, characters to fall in love with. The book, just like the heroes so gloriously portrayed in it, embodies that ultimately sexy combination of brain and muscle. Superficial readers can read this as a heart-stopping action thriller, but intelligent readers will see much more than that. Yes there are massive gunfights (so vivid that all my dreams were gunfights for several days) but there is also a message about humanity and reality. And while most authors speak via their characters' voices, Fuchs achieves that rare feat of conveying a message to us through the *structure* of the plot itself. Think Sophie's World and the Time Traveler's Wife, with the tight story-telling of, say, Wilkie Collins, the poetry of Thomas Hardy, the vision of Lord of the Flies, the humanity of Jane Austen, and very big guns.

I finished this book with fireworks going off in my brain and tears pouring down my face, and immediately read it a second time. My only complaint is that the next book in the series is not yet available; I want to read it *right now*.

5.0 out of 5 stars Up there with Clancy and W.E.B. Griffin 23 July 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Fast paced, engaging and thoroughly enjoyable. The military jargon is balanced well and provides the detail necessary but without disrupting the story flow. The characters are involving and you get a sense of a real person rather than just a "gung ho" gun platform.
The story differs from the usual military fiction fare when it deals with the online world. Michael examines the increasing way we are building our lives around our wired and wireless networks and asks. Are we ready to work together to defend them?
He then goes on to examine the use of cyberspace as a resource for training direct action cyber-based terrorism.
I'd highly recommend this book

5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining to the End 18 July 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am not the greatest fan of fictional military story telling but this was brilliant, being a gamer the connection between the real world and the online world was a brave step to take but pulled it off with room to spare, Yes there are gamers out there who live in the online world and am sure would give Spec Forces a run for their money in theatre albeit synthetic, but to bring to light the crossover between the two was spectacular in so many ways, Not to detract from the real world Ops either, masterfully laid out in a way that you could visualise the whole story, How to end such a story well there are so many ways but Michael has done it with the same respect and quiet acceptance of just another day at the office that real military teams see their work as. I have just purchased the next book Counter Assault and eagerly await book 3 due this year

5.0 out of 5 stars Fast Action 19 April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a truly fast action, high octane book. It starts the book running and never stops. The characters are well built and you really route for them and want to find the next book in the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great read 7 Mar. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A great read, read the Arisen books first and thought I`d give this a go, glad I did. Unusual plot and very imaginative combination of both "real life" and computer game combat.
Read this guy, you won't be disappointed.

I really really enjoyed D-Boys. I thought it was Fuchs best yet and I am super keen to meet the same set of characters in future (in fact if anything I wanted the book to be longer/have more detail). Well worth reading if you like cyber/action thrillers.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good read 4 Jan. 2013
By Nicole
Format:Kindle Edition
A rollicking romp into the world of cyber-terrorism and badass special ops dudes. The way that the story takes place in and out of a virtual world is clever and well-executed, and the characters are realistic and likeable. Especially enjoyed the use of choice phrases such as 'charred meat waffles'. Look forward to reading the next one.

D-Boys is an interesting concept and owes much to Eric Hanley's excellent book on the Delta Force, but for me this book was so poorly executed I was struggling from the start. Read more

One of the worst books I have read for a while in the worst possible writing genre there is. So if you want a well written book with a good plot line - don't by this - buy Moonrise... Read more

I'm still looking for a decent fictional story about Delta Force (well outside of the excellent TV series The Unit) and D-Boys isn't it. Read more
