2.0 out of 5 stars A very so-so story... 8 Sep 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The franchise has taken a few twists and turns, Lambert killed off and a strange back story around Fishers daughter all cloud this story, no longer 3rd, but 4th Echelon, now reporting directly to the President [herself!]... It is all too far fetched, when Fisher was skulking around the shadows with very few deaths, the stories were engaging and had mystery and suspense, here Fisher no longer works alone in the field, people die left, right & centre, there are big explosions, swearing, and lots of people get to find out who Fisher is!?

Overall it is dull, all-American stereotype that does nothing to push the Splinter Cell franchise forward...

5.0 out of 5 stars Splinter Cell reborn 9 Oct 2013
By Dagrumpsta - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
In the aftermath of conspiracy, corruption, and betrayal a reconstructed Splinter Cell team designated "Fourth Echelon" emerges under the command of Sam Fisher and answerable only to the President. We join the team during their current assignment: find and steal back one hundred pounds of highly enriched uranium (HEU) stolen from Russia and hidden somewhere inside Iran.

But, when Igor Kasperov, Russia's equivalent to America's Bill Gates vanishes, the President orders Fisher to abort the HEU mission and find him. How is Kasperov more important--or dangerous--than weapon grade uranium in the hands of Islamic radicals?

President Caldwell dispatches the 4E team to learn the answers. Meanwhile, the Russians order their elite operative, Major Viktoria Kolosov, the Snow Maiden, to bring the missing software genius back to Moscow. Smells like a showdown between the Snow Maiden and Sam to me.

There's more here between the book covers than the usual over-the-top action adventure scenes and sequences. Telep shares some of the geopolitical underpinnings driving his story. I like that a lot. It puts meat on the bones. It shows respect for the reader and demonstrates a keen awareness of current events. Two examples: The permanent stationing of U.S. Navy missile equipped ships in European ports to circumvent Russia's "no land missiles" prohibition is nothing short of brilliant and U.S. natural gas sales that undercut Russian pricing in the European marketplace is akin to dropping an economic bomb. Such actions by the U.S. are viewed as a direct assault on the economic stability of the Russian government and a threat to its homeland security. The Russians have long considered Europe as their exclusive gas and oil customer and missile platforms that can sail from port to port yet remain on target is enough to make any country nervous.

It's no surprise that the Russians feel compelled to retaliate against such threats. Is Kasperov's disappearance a part of their scheme? The author sets it all up, turns Sam and his team loose, and dares us to follow.

Did you forget about that missing HEU? Telep doesn't. You can bet your lead vest it's going to arrive, uninvited, in a crucial place, at an awkward time, ticking like a, you-know-what!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excelent 4 Oct 2013
By rodman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I purchased this book and so far I am 65 pages in. I have to say if you are a long time splinter cell fan then you will love this book. It "no shit" continues the story from splinter cell blacklist. After beating blacklist I longed for another story that continued the splinter cell sequel. This book delivers and then some. It even goes into the details of the characters and why they do what they do. there are allot of information that you will never be able to know just from playing the game. You must purchased this book if you are like me and could not get enough of the blacklist story from the video game. P.S this book even gives a nice inside look on my favorit character "CHARLIE" They don't even pussy foot around it either, they tell you why he is so good with computers why he does what he does and why he is with 4th echelon

5.0 out of 5 stars Splinter Cell Blacklist Aftermath 2 Oct 2013
By Jacqueline A. Fiest - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
One of the things that attracts me to an author is when you can tell someone has done their research, and Telep always does. It makes things feel more real when you have a description of a weapon, vehicle or airplane in such detail you can 100% see it in your head. Also, as a long time Splinter Cell fan, the books do a great job of holding you over between games which can take years to develop. Over all, I'm always very happy with Telep's books. Can't wait for the next one!

4.0 out of 5 stars Moves beyond simple "Tie-In" fiction… 16 Oct 2013
By David Copeland - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
My policy with novels written for the Clancy brand is simple: I buy them. I have done so without question for years, going back to the NetForce novels. As the years have worn on the collection has grown, but many of the novels have gone unread.

Peter Telep's Ghost Recon: Choke Point broke that spell earlier this year (which lead to me to also read Combat Ops and Ghost Recon, which Telep wrote under a different name.)

But with Splinter Cell: Blacklist Aftermath, Telep has hit a real stride, having written a tense, vivid adventure that is by and large more interesting and engaging than the game it follows. It hits the ground running with an exciting (and gruesome) motorcycle chase. Fun stuff. From there it slides into the a-plot which deals with a billionaire software developer on the run, seeking refuge after a crisis of conscience leads him to disobey the Kremlin's order to unleash a hellish, unstoppable computer virus on American infrastructure.

Sam Fisher and his team race to find him…as does just about everyone else with a high-powered weapon. Interesting to note is the inclusion of the Snow Maiden, a character featured prominently in Telep's EndWar novels. I love the world building (though not the indistinct timeline—something my nerd brain wants, but doesn't need!) and the sense of scope. The characters live, fight and flee in a world that rises above typical tie-in fiction.

If I have to level any kind of criticism, it's this: the novel is often too lean and streamlined. I have to imagine this is symptomatic of the format and timeframe in which a novel like this is published. If one has read Against All Enemies, they'll know well that Telep can take the time and color characters more vividly than he does here.

But this novel tears ahead and doesn't look back—not much time here to wax poetic. And that's okay, because what's here is blistering and thrilling (AND educational! So, so many descriptions, acronyms and explanations to be had!) Aftermath doesn't read lazy in the least—something far too often evident in tie-in fiction.

While I'll probably skip the next game, I will surely buy the next Splinter Cell novel.
