SEA STRIKE is the second novel in the Amanda Garrett series of novels.

For some indication of how much I love "sea stories" check my review of the prior Amanda Garrett novel.

Cobb writes novels at the level Michael Crichton did: he doesn't over-kill you with tech-details like Tom Clancy does; but rather Cobb delivers crisp dialogue, intriguing characters, an involving story, sub-plots for the easily bored, a female heroine who kicks ass and takes names in
The sequel to Choosers of the Slain, we have the same characters and the same ship, in a whole new situation. Although not as captivating as the first book, it was still an excellent read. This story was much more focused on the people than on the technology.
Great novel, depicts the world of international relations well and also meets my needs of naval jargon! Cobb is great at setting the scene for the military engagements throughout the novel.

Highly recommend!
My mama introduced me to this book, and the first time I read it, I was entranced with Amanda Lee Garrett.

Compared with 'Choosers of the Slain', James Cobb has run out of ideas and this book disappoints.
