What the hell happened to Dalton Fury???

I read his first novel, Black Site, and loved it. It was one of the best novels I read that year. As soon as I finished, I couldn't wait for the next one. The second novel, Tier One Wild, I think was a step-back. I enjoyed it but not as much as Black Site. Whereas Fury's first novel was non-stop action and edge of your seat thrills, his second novel I found to be a bit draggy. The first 80 pages were good. The last 80 pages were good. The middle part dragg

Here we are again with Major Kolt Raynor the maverick operator of the Delta Force.

Now, this is a digression, but I do wonder why the protagonists are always, "mavericks". I mean while the ability to think on your feet and fo0r yourself are prerequisites for spec. ops. operators, I've never really known one who was quite as rebellious as Kolt...

Anyway, another good action read running down a key terrorist figure. Kolt here is (again) in trouble with Delta and about to be forced into schooling tha

Kolt Raynor takes care of a matter in the middle east and his superior officer does not like it and moves him from the unit. He goes to work for an independent contractor searching for a terrorist that is planning to hit a sight in the U.S.

Outstanding work by Mr. Fury. This is a relatively new series and each of the books have been as exciting as they come. Cannot wait for the next installment.
After the leading pair of novels I was very excited for the next one. But, within a few pages, it became apparent that the usual energy and snappy dialogue wasn't there. While I enjoy the small details in books, this time it felt overdone. After it has already been mentioned three times I don't need to be frequently reminded that Crye Precision made the Kolt's knee pads. I get it, operators love their Cryes and other kit, but at a certain point the story becomes catalog for H&K and Opscore. ...more

I really enjoy these Kolt Raynor novels. (BTW, only an author named Dalton Fury could get away with naming his hero Kolt Raynor.)

For me, the series puts a lifelike eye on US military. Gosh knows we need the “kick ass and take names” SEALS. Fury sheds light on the “do anything for the team” mindset of Delta. It makes me feel good.

While I liked this book, I wasn’t always as captivated as with the prior ones. It went kind-of-like…Love that Delta Kolt!/Yikes. There sure is a lot of rationalization o

FULL ASSAULT MODE is the third in the Kolt Raynor series and it is a fast paced, exciting ride, as one would expect of a tale about Delta Force and terrorism. The book builds up the team relationship within Delta before having our hero, Major “Racer” Raynor getting in trouble with his direct superior officer when Raynor disobeys an order but manages to complete a dangerous mission, extracting his undercover team mate from a dicey situation deep in hostile territory within Pakistan while capturi ...more
Shelly Donaghey
I found FULL ASSAULT MODE to be pretty standard stuff from what I have read in the genre. Everybody is really tough and dedicated, very smart and willing to go the extra mile to get the job done. With action scenes in Pakistan, the U.S. and GitoMo, with stops in between, this tale moves right along, at times feeling a little jumpy in its narrative, skipping over parts that, upon reflection, wouldn't have helped the story as the author, Dalton Fury, made sure to simple explain away any missing p ...more
I am extremely grateful to have won this great book for free from Goodreads Book Giveaway contest!

What a ride this book turned out to be! Having never read anything by Dalton, I wasn't sure what to expect but this book was so full of action and suspense, I loved it! I enjoyed the hard-charging Raynor as he strove to defeat our "dedicated" terrorist enemies from decimating a nuclear plant but what I enjoyed most was Raynor trying to gain access to these terrorists, infiltrating them, and convinci

I've read all three books in this series and enjoyed them all thoroughly. "Full Assault Mode" was no exception. However, while I did enjoy this book, I have to say it is the weakest of the three in the series.

I found that the flow of the narrative was choppy. There are large time-jumps in the story where major events occur and the reader is left going back to previous pages to determine if he has missed something. While reading this book I came to wonder if the author, perhaps, tried to do too
The only issue I have with the author, Dalton Fury, is how long I have to wait until his next book comes out. Man, can this guy write a story!! From the moment I turned the first page, I couldn't put it down. Great story, non-stop action and a fantastic read from beginning to end! I always follow a few of my favorite authors, Brad Thor, James Rollins, Brad Taylor, Steve Berry and Vince Flynn. I just added Dalton Fury to my list and will be looking forward to reading each of the books he puts out ...more
Good stuff.

I received this book for free from the Goodreads Giveaway contest. Wow, I'm glad I was given the opportunity to read this book. The author, Dalton Fury, can really keep a reader turning the pages. Not only does he deliver a great story line, but the action and suspense never stops from beginning to end. The main character, Kolt Raynor, a Delta Force operator, takes hunting down terrorist cells to a new level. He travels from country to country following clues to a very deep cover terrorist cell ...more
Full Assault Mode is Dalton Fury's 3rd Delta Force novel and my second read. It is a realistic, gritty account of an ISIS attempt to destroy American nuclear plants. If I were to guess, the main character Kolt Raynor could be (in real life) the author Fury. Although some of the exciting events seem almost staged for this book, I accept Fury's accounts and descriptions as close to fact due to his background in the war on terror. An exciting read.
Dalton Fury was a Delta Force Commander during Tora Bora and he brings all that knowledge to his novels.What's so awesome is the expertise in how operations like these are run, and the jargon that goes with it.He created a great character in Kolt"Racer"Raynor a Major that does things his own way,and with believable characters and suspense you will not be able to put it down.This is his third book in this series along with Black Site and Tier One Wild are all full of awesome action.
I almost didn't read this as a few commenters's reviews were pretty harsh. Yes, the action takes place and bounces around from chapter to chapter, but it's nothing new. Perhaps the negative comments stemmed from the fact that some plot arcs/action arcs are quickly wrapped up so the author can move on to the next parts of the story. I agree that some fleshing out of the scenes would make a more fulfilling novel, but this read was nothing different from others in this genre.
I wanted to like this action novel more than I did. It had curious plot jumps that left me wondering if I was skipping pages.
Worth reading just because of Dalton Fury's knowledge of the matter, but this novel just does not impress.
Entertaining and well written. Enjoyable to listen to while biking away in the summer
Jim Morton
Pretty standard stuff and story did not have usual depth.
This is the second book in this series I have read. Both were really weak. No more for me.
The plot jumped abruptly to new locations from time to time which confused me slightly but on the whole I enjoyed the detail and will be sure to read more of Mr. Fury's work in the future.
It is boring and generic. I know that I have read a story like this, if not pretty much exactly with only a few differences, before. The story jumps around with scenes missing that would explain some details. The first two were better developed. This just seemed rushed and incomplete. To be honest, I could not even finish it. Got to page 310 of 350 and just could not read the last forty pages. The climax of the story is just lacking.
Robert Ringler
Definitely the least readable and choppiest of the series so far. The brash, rebellious hero act is getting a bit worn, and the author has begun to employ the device of skipping big chunks of time without explanation if the transition is too tough to make. Good technical details and action scenes, but the overall quality is dropping fast. Next installment may be a make or break point for my interest in continuing this series.
Kolt may have screwed up being a cowboy for the last time. Short of getting thrown out of SoF by a vindictive general, Kolt is offered a job as an operator in the secret organization Tungsten. This is not entirely new to Kolt, but quite different operating on U.S. soil. He's still fighting terrorists, but now with his wits undercover by stopping al Qaeda from blowing up a nuclear power plant.
Ty Owen
Medals for the dead................this is really becoming one of my favorite series. I really like Kolt and I really like his attitude. This book was not my favorite in the series, but I still give it a 5 star rating. If you want action, the truth, and a kick butt operator...this is your series.
Sorry for my ignorance , as I didn't have the honor to serve in our military. But would somebody as inept as Admiral Mason be moved around to important positions as in the Book? That was one of the main plot points that annoyed me about this book.
Sarah Brown
This is NOT my usual genre so while I just liked it does not mean anything negative. The writing style was good and kept you pulled into the storyline. As a nonmilitary book reader I was impressed by the characters.
Brian Miller
Liked it. Very cool. A modern day version of Major Scott McCoy (aka Chuck Norris- The Delta Force). Made me wish I was back at McKellar's Lodge drinking a cold one the whole time that I was reading it!!
