Excellent book full of action, plot twists and memoriable characters! I had a hard time putting it down.
Great book, good mystery. Couldn't put it down after I got into it.
Could this really happen???
I really liked this book, all of Chris Stewart's book are highly suspenseful and fast paced.

Another good read, entertaining, good way to escape.
It's meant to be the triumphant debut of the Ares, a U.S. super- jet named after the Greek God of war. With its ultra powerful laser and ability to easily outmaneouver anything else in the sky, the Ares opens a new era in warfare. But when it is stolen before of a crowd of international dignitaries, the President and his defence staff must use outdated technology to try to stop their creation from sparking a war between civilizations.It's up to Colonel "Jesse" James to save the world from impend ...more
What a great techno thriller. I really enjoyed the twists and turns this book takes. It seems like a run of the mill "middle east terrorist going to attack the U.S." type book but turns out to be so much more. Stewart highlights the real threat our Nation faces...
The great thing about most of Stewart's novels is that they could happen today.
My wife didn't care for a lot of the technical aspects that abound but for me that is why I love techno thrillers. The images Stewart paints are so real you
This was much better than The Fourth War in my opinion, but I still would have loved a little more to the love interest part of the story. I think I'm ready to move on from Chris Stewart books because with the Great and Terrible series aside, the others have turned out to be a similar theme- middle East at odds against the US and catastrophic in betweens with too much techno and too little mushy stuff.

This book is about an advance fighter jet stolen for revenge. The technical and lethal abilities of this fighter is very worrisome.
Good military, flighter plane mystery, it was a somewhat of a thriller but it did hold my interest to the very end.

I actually couldn't finish it. It was way too slow for me. Too much detail and not enough story to hold me.
Good book. I enjoyed the author's Wrath & Righteousness series. This book was on par with that series.
