Fire of the Raging Dragon by Don Brown {Review}

I recently got the opportunity to read Don Brown’s new book “Fire of the Raging Dragon” which is part of his Pacific Rim series. 9780310330158

Synopsis:

In Fire of the Raging Dragon—the second book in bestselling author Don Brown’s Pacific Rim Series—Stephanie Surber is stationed on board a submarine tender in the South China Sea when a naval war breaks out. After a gruesome discovery escalates America’s involvement, Stephanie’s father, U.S. President Douglas Surber, must choose to take a stand against evil … or save the life of his daughter.

It’s a novel full of “edge of your seat” drama and intrigue. At first I felt it started a bit slow but then the further I got into it the more I enjoyed it. I found myself having a hard time putting the book down by the end. You switch between each party involved and in the beginning it was quite confusing because I easily forgot which character was in which location, but, then as it unfolded I was able to put it all straight.

I’ll be honest I wasn’t sure that this would be something I would enjoy since I prefer reading historical novels but I was very pleased with how well written and how the story unfolded. It is a very interesting story line and I believe if you like modern warfare dramas you will love this one.  I don’t know whether I will read anymore of this series or not but as a first time or one time read it was quite enjoyable.

*I received this novel free from Zondervan in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own and no other compensation was received.
