Book Description

29 Aug 2013 Ryan Drake 2

Afghanistan, 2008. A Black Hawk helicopter carrying a senior CIA operative is shot down by a surface to air missile, its lone passenger taken hostage by a fanatical new insurgent group.

Knowing this man holds information vital to the ongoing conflict, the CIA bring in Ryan Drake and his elite Shepherd team to find and rescue their lost operative.

But nothing is what it seems, and within hours of arriving in the war-torn country, Drake and his team find themselves caught in a deadly conflict between a brutal terrorist warlord and the ruthless leader of a private military company.

And lurking in the shadows is a woman from Drake's past determined to settle old scores.

4.0 out of 5 stars What Ryan did next... 29 May 2013
By Raven TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition
Sacrifice sees the return to action of Ryan Drake- our tough guy hero with the soft centre- in another fast-paced adventure to satisfy any fan of the military or conspiracy thriller. Opening with the spectacular shooting down of a helicopter in war torn Afghanistan, ferrying a particularly important American operative, Drake and his team are despatched to deal with the aftermath and to track down the missing agent kidnapped from the crash site. It soon becomes clear to Drake and his team that shady forces are at work and that this mission is nowhere near as straightforward as it seems, leading to some pretty impressive altercations and an adrenaline fuelled race for the truth...

Once again, Jordan thrusts the reader straight into the harsh terrain and bleak surroundings of an active war-zone, perfectly capturing the heat and starkness of Afghanistan. As in Redemption, Jordan never allows the reader to lose sight of the location and atmosphere which underpins the action throughout. Likewise, the same level of detail regarding the actions of the Army and Black-Ops outfits is absolutely perfect, and Jordan's inherent knowledge of military hardware pepper the story educating the reader but without becoming too know-it-all, while other writers in this genre find this a difficult balance to achieve. As regards plotting, the story unfolds at a pace and I liked the setting up of Drake against a former nemesis and also the reappearance of a rather striking character from the first book that unsettles our hero. Although the plot plays out in a rather similar way to the first book, this didn't overly concern me as having read many McNabs and Ryans, there is a distinct similarity generally in this genre, but Jordan has an added weapon in his arsenal...

5.0 out of 5 stars Drake is back 7 Jun 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Ryan Drake is back, the mission to rescue a captured CIA agent held in Afghanistan.
A simple brief but who is friend and who is foe?

From the start Mr Jordan weaves a spell, the action is fast and believable, close your eyes and you see the hills round Kabul clear enough to make an Afghan homesick.

Drake with all his faults and flaws will do his best to get the job done and bring his team home safe. But who can be trusted with contracts worth billions of dollars up for grabs.

4.0 out of 5 stars Strong follow up to the first installment 25 April 2014
Format:Paperback
Overall, while I liked this installment slightly less than the first one, I think it demonstrates that the author is capable of delivering consistently strong writing.

"Sacrifice" begins much like "Redemption," with a mission to retrieve an important person from a hostile situation. But whereas "Redemption"'s mission seemed more character driven, the mission in "Sacrifice" is more action oriented. Ryan Drake's Shepherd team must navigate Afghanistan to find a CIA operative who was shot down, and then learn what important secrets he was guarding.

THE GOOD: We get to see the members of the Shepherd team work together instead of against one another. The characters have good chemistry, acting like a band of old friends as they hack and plan. Some of the characters are fleshed out more, like Keegan and Frost; in the latter's case, it's especially welcome, as Frost came off a bit too much like a Girl Friday in "Redemption." Drake is more independent and bad assy, with one scene in an elevator serving as a real highlight.

As in the first installment, the scene setting and action are well done. There were more twists and they mostly worked.

NEEDS IMPROVEMENT: While it was good to see more character development among the Shepherd team, the two most compelling characters from the last installment were either more marginalized or missing completely. That made the reading experience a little less enjoyable. Also, while there was more character fleshing out, the individual Shepherd members, save Drake, don't quite come across as individuals. I think they need to be more established if we're going to follow them from book to book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another good read Will 20 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I liked the suspense of the story and the fact that even the good guys get killed shows that Will understands the nature of war.

To much detail of surroundings in some places makes the read at times slow.

Look forward to reading the next installment and thanks Will.

4.0 out of 5 stars Always Engaging and Entertaining 7 Mar 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is not quite the best in terms of quality of writing and there are a few stereotypical cliches typical of the genre but it was always holding my attention for the engaging plot and general flow of the story. Would recommend as a good example of its type.

An enjoyable read, kept me up way later than I'd planned. Like the characters and a good follow up to the first one, Redemption.
