Decent read. I've been finding the Dreamland series in bits and pieces while deployed, so I'm reading them out of order somewhat.

After Kushiel's Chosen, which took me about three weeks to read, I was looking for a page turner. Dale Brown delivered yet again.

Dreamland is the advanced aerospace weapons testing facility in Nevada and the Pentagon is looking for an excuse to shut it down. Lt.

Typical Brown fare...I have enjoyed other parts of his series so I'm taking a shot at this one...planes, tech devices and world trouble spots all in one place in an explosive mixture of suspense and military mayhem...good fun!!!
