This well written and exciting adventure story is reminiscent of the Tom Clancy novels at their best, but this book has more action. The authors describe the battles and other exploits of a unique battle force in fascinating detail that draw readers into the clashes. Readers will react as they read and as they finish this action-packed drama: “Wow! When will the next book come out?”

Ken Farmer and Buck Stienke have teamed up to write an exciting, adventure-riddled, subtly romantic book entitled Black Eagle Force; Eye of the Storm. They begin the story with a history lesson – how Santa Anna came across the Rio Grande to San Antonio and the Alamo. This short lesson is actually personalized by naming the owners of a large ranch that the Mexicans had to go through to reach that part of Texas in the fight for Texas Independence.

Fast forward to modern times.

I absolutely loved the fighting and action scenes. The technical descriptions of the advanced weapons were first rate. It was like reading a dream list for special ops. So many weapons, aircraft, advanced electronic equipment. The homemade EMF 16-gauge nail spittin' coyote gun was also a wonder to behold.

While the initial action as non-stop, bloody and exciting, the story slowed to the pace of a country BBQ complete with sweet tea and a picnic. Unfortunately for our heroes, the villains were rea

The fast-paced action in “Black Eagle Force: Eye Of The Storm” by Buck Stienke and Ken Farmer reminds me of a big summer action blockbuster in the theater, only in book form. The heroes are handsome and tough, and the heroines are beautiful and tough as well. The action is hard-hitting, edge-of-your-seat, can't wait to turn the page to find out what happens next. And the characters that make up Black Eagle Force are characters I want to read about again. (In fact, if they turned this series into ...more

It is often said of Vince Flynn’s CIA hero, “I hope there is a Mitch Rapp out there,” by those concerned about terrorism. Well the same could be said about the Black Eagle Force by those concerned about border control as it pertains to drug cartels. At the beginning of this action packed book, we find Iraq war veteran, Captain Mike Hermann out of the Marine Corps and back home on his family ranch along the Mexican border in Texas.

Black Eagle Force ~ Eye of the Storm is the best novel I've read in decades! And I read all the time. The weaving of historical facts and present day events is unparallelled by any other Authors writing today. I was immersed in the story from page one and it seemed the pages turned themselves from beginning to end. The action is so realistic one can smell the cordite, hear and feel the bullets cracking as they pass thru and by the readers mind. Sensations I know of all too well first hand. It is ...more

From the reviews, I was hoping this was going to be a really great book. Unfortunately It read way too much like a bad soap opera. The characters were way over the top. It's usual to have the MC be someone out of the ordinary, but things started to go downhill once the sister was running around on the family ranch in Southwest Texas after getting her PhD in electrical engineering--in five years. On top of that, the writing style made the story sound like something out of 7th grade, except for al ...more

Move over Tom Clancy.
I am a big fan of Tom Clancy but I found this book to be even better.
I like the way the history lesson at the first laid the foundation for the rest of the story. It was a great story of how a family came back to rebuild after such a horrible loss.
I like the way the women were strong but yet the men respected them for it.
It was also a look at the way things could happen in this country if we don't keep our guard up along our borders.
I don't want to give any spoilers but I wi

Prepare yourself for one riveting, action-packed, in your face reading experience. That's what you get with Black Eagle Force: Eye of the Storm. Imagine the A-Team, The Expendables, and Commando all rolled up into one non-stop story that grips you from page one and keeps you riveted until the very end. Although the military jargon and weapon references might have you rushing off to Google every page, the authors, Ken Farmer and Buck Stienke keep the action moving. In fact, one could easily see t ...more

This book gets your attention quickly, and sends you on a great ride! Tying history into current day, the first tale of the Black Eagle Force is hard to put down! Introducing the organization and what they do (I don't want to spoil anything) all fits very well with today's headlines. And from the look of things, tomorrow's headlines, and more headlines to come.

Superheroes must have either a super suit or at least a bat-mobile. There is no such in this book.

Horrible horrible read. I bought this book based on the 'Goodreads" reviews and was looking forward to going to that place in my mind where only a good book could take me. Boy was I disappointed. The book started out ok by giving the reader some history of the property in Texas that bordered Mexico, where the story takes place. I actually enjoyed the author's description of the battle that erupted between the Mexican Army and the settlers that homesteaded the property in the early 1800's. That' ...more
