Note: Red Dragon Rising: Shock of War is the third of four volumes that make up a single story. It is not a stand-alone tale and there is no point in reading it unless you have tackled Shadows of War (Larry Bond's Red Dragon Rising) and Edge of War (Larry Bond's Red Dragon Rising) first.

If you enjoyed the two previous Red Dragon Rising volumes then you'll enjoy this one too. The usual caveats apply. This is just one part of a larger narrative, so don't expect all the plot strands to be nicely tied up at the end. Some sub-plots also receive more attention than others, with Zeus Murphy coming to the fore this time at the expense of Mara and Josh.

Otherwise its the usual mix of geopolitics, military action and espionage, with a few soapy elements thrown in. Some of the latter don't work brilliantly, with Zeus' romantic relationship with a Vietnamese doctor failing to ring entirely true. On the whole however, events move forward logically and the plot holds together. There's also plenty of exciting action on land and sea and in the air.

I will definitely be back for the fourth and final volume when its published.
