    1. This is one of the best, if not the best novel I ve read this year.A United States spy satellite, Angel 12, has dropped from space and is headed for the interior of China However, when Space Command at the Offut Air Force Base in Nebraska takes a second look, they realize the Chinese have deliberately knocked the satellite out of orbit, intending for it to fall on their soil.Space Command manages to make some adjustments to the orbit just in time and the satellite crashes in Siberia not far from [...]

    2. More like 3.5 stars A gripping tale of a fallen American satellite and the three way competition to recover or destroy it Well plotted and written Credit given to co author Alton Gansky.I normally don t read this type of book, but aside from a somewhat clunky beginning this one grabs the reader and drags him or her through a complex tale some of which parallel today s headlines First published in 2011 One of the competing elements is a Russian splinter group, unhappy with the depths to which pos [...]

    3. The Unite States, China, and Russia are in race against time The prize for placing first is an American satellite that has crashed from space With the odds continually mounting against them, U.S Sargent Major Eric Moyer must take his team into a country they are not supposed to be in With the clock ticking down and the two other nations closing in on their target, Moyer has to make it there first the President won t allow failure.Starting this book is like sliding onto the back of a wild bronco [...]

    7. MOM S REVIEW John 15 13 comes alive in this novel about a Special Ops Unit assigned the task of rescuing a fallen satellite and some injured military personnel in enemy territory It is a race against two other enemy nations trying, at all costs, to get their hands on the satellite as well.The cast and story are unbelievably real as the author, Major Struecker, is a Black Hawk Down veteran and keeps you on the edge I was amazed at what our special forces are willing to go through for our country [...]

    8. Because I m not a huge fan of military suspense, this book was hard for me to get into It revolves around space based intelligence and since I m not familiar with military operations, many of the references were hard for me to understand or find interest in However, I did enjoy Blaze of Glory This author definitely knows what he s writing about and I think that because he is such a highly respected and decorated member of the Army, he has the advantage of military intelligence and experience tha [...]

    9. Special Ops teams from multiple countries converge on a satellite which has crashed in Siberia The story is straightforward, entertaining and fairly realistic Like the earlier books in this series, this book is focused on action and plot than character and setting There is zero subtlety and little in the way of intricacy, literary flourish, sub plots, or mystery.The story touches on I was going to say explores, but it isn t quite that deep a few thought provoking issues how teams adapt to chang [...]

    10. Outstanding Spec Ops adventure with action going on overseas and at home at the same time Loved the characters and how they interacted I stopped reading Tom Clancy because he got too technical with pages and pages of data dumps There is just enough data here to help you understand the ops, but not enough to bore you Read it in less than a week, which is good for me, considering I still have a day job and many home projects going on.

    11. Read all three in the series Must say they are all well worth the read Great military story without too much for us non military people So thankful for all of our military their families Out of the three in the series, this was the best I was the most tired after this one though Very nervous about how it was going to end.

    12. The spec ops stuff seems spot on Enjoyed it all the way I recommend it.Felt mostly like what it would be in the field, sometimes lacked the grit I expect from military novels Mabye because it s a Christian novel Not preachy at all though.

    13. Great action packed, on your toes novel Loved it Couldn t put it down Moles in the system, evil on the home front, fallen satellites, captured comrades, compromised leaders, loyal friends and family this was an incredible story of Christian faith and trust in the One God A great read

    14. Refreshing viewpoint Enjoyed the story like the characters, even the enemy is presented as intelligent, well trained and honorable Christian morality.

    15. I read it because I wanted something fun to read, and I have met Alton Gansky at Christian Writer Conferences It was great Fast paced, suspenseful, and technically believable.

    16. A nice series based on special ops group It kept me interested from page 1 of book 1 to the last page of book 3.
