Matt Lynn's knowledge of the brutal world of mercs is detailed and extensive. From off the shelf weaponary to improvised explosives and everything else inbetween the realism of "Fire Force" keeps the reader engaged from begining to end.
Fire Force is fast paced and exciting. For those that have already read book one, Lynn reprises the same characters which I was really happy about. If you haven't read book one in the series then I highly recommend it, but this can be read on it's own as Lynn still familiarises you with the characters.
The action sequences are great - highly emotive and descriptive. You will struggle to put it down! The characters are nicely fleshed out too and are less one dimensional than you find in many of these type of books.
Looking forward to reading the rest in the series!
The action really starts in chapter 3 but you're still pretty much put right in the thick of the story from the beginning and the descriptive language never fails to pull you in. Set in Africa, it differs slightly from the usual SAS type stories but still retains the excitement with graphic imagery.
If you enjoy riveting action with strong characters then the Death Force series are well worth checking out.
about when he describes all the battles that take place throughout the novel. I did however notice a few flaws, but overall the book is well worth getting
I would like to say first that for the most part I did enjoy reading Death Force and that I genuinely looked forward to the sequel. However, when I picked up Fire Force I discovered 252 pages of utter tedium. This novel is like a bad carcrash between a dumb action movie (where everyone has endless ammunition, is extremely short sighted and moves at a snail's pace) and Wikipedia. Also several points are near carbon copies of what was written in Death Force.
Now for the main event. I do realise that the actual story section of the book is 485 pages long, but on page 252 there is, in my personal opinion, such a complete lump of utter rubbish. Something of both insane stupidity and misplaced, chest-thumping machoism. Something I would have quite frankly expected the Welsh Walt character to have done and not one of the professional soliders.
I will not spoil it if you are still interested in this novel, but I will say this. Fire Force, because of that single stupid event, became the first book that I actually put away, unfinished, in a dark corner of my room. I have since moved on to something more realistic. Thank you Duncan Falconer.
