Fire of the Raging Dragon by Don Brown Book Review

In the very near future, China, now the world's largest industrial producer and consumer of Mideast Oil, passes a law that all new cars manufactured in that nation will be operated on natural gas. Beneath the floor of the South China Sea, around the contested Spratly Islands, billions of gallons of natural gas wait to be mined. But at the center of the Spratlys, the remote but strategic island of Itu Aba is occupied by China's historic enemy, Taiwan.

When the new, power-hungry Chinese President, Tang Qhichen, orders Chinese Naval forces to attack Taiwanese forces on Itu Aba, U.S. President Douglas Surber responds, ordering the U.S. Seventh Fleet to try and quell a burgeoning naval showdown between the two Chinas.

Aboard the submarine tender U.S.S. Emory S. Land, one of the first ships in the naval war zone, is Ensign Stephanie Surber, a recent Naval Academy graduate who is also the First Daughter of the United States. As the Emory S. Land steams into harm's way, Ensign Surber's life is gravely threatened. The President must make a decision. Will he take a stand against evil? Or will he save the life of his daughter?

My Thoughts:

This was my first time reading any of Don Brown novels. Every once in a while I like to change up my reading venue, so I was excited to receive a copy of this book. This is the second book in this series.

All I can say is wow, if you like action pack books then this is it. The characters are realistic and very likable. I admit it took me a few chapters to get into the story and to put some of it together. But, after that I was totally enraptured in this story.

The characters you will love. I liked seeing he President and his family as believers and seeing his faith in action and it plays a huge part in his decisions.

This story is well written, and fast paced. The plot is filled with lots of suspense. This was and enjoyable book.

Disclosure of Material Connection: Booksneeze-Thomas Nelson Publishers provided me this Book free as part of their book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
