Raven's Resurrection: A Cybertech Thriller

Rate this book
Raven and Josie are isolated in a compromised safe house. A jihadist kill team is coming.

Raven's deep-black team has thwarted several terrorist attacks on America. President Blager, having twice survived assassination attempts, now trusts them.

Josie, a paranormal viewer, is a national resource. She can see what others cannot. Raven's job is to protect her, but America's enemies have allies in high places. His team is targeted.

An underground Iranian Quds base is discovered by Josie. This is an act of invasion, a foreign military base with WMDs on America soil. The base is protected by "Cal-Exit" State officials, Washington insiders, and Mexican drug cartels.

While the military is pondering what to do, Raven and Josie are left to innovate. It leads Raven to extreme actions and involvement with a beautiful spy run by a legendary Russian spymaster. Despite common interests, the Russians can't be trusted.

Russia and Iran are now allies. Raven needs help, but his working with Russia is unsanctioned, off the books, and under a false flag. Staying alive may pose a more difficult challenge than dealing with Iran's Quds Force.
This is the third book in the award winning Raven's series.

I am not sure how to begin this review as this reading experience was a bit of a mixed bag. There were certainly highs, such as a fantastic car chase and the author's classic narrative voice. Then there are lows, such as the story itself - a little all over the place and occasionally preferring cool sounding phrases to realistic dialogue.

The author does appear to keep pushing himself to develop, as he attempts to write from the point of view of many different characters rather than sticking to a few main ones. Unfortunately, this is not something that works particularly well and leads to some confusion in a number of chapters.

The plot, when looking at what is actually accomplished eventually, is fine as a premise, but I think that the book falls flat on execution for me. I was also a bit annoyed with each book in the series mentioning a collection of what the author calls "factoids and fantasies", which I do not find to contribute anything in particular.

Should a second edition of this book come out with a tweaked story, more clarity, and fewer tangents, it might have been more for me. In its present form, it unfortunately does not suit my tastes.

This book was provided to me in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.

MWSA Review

In Raven's Resurrection, author John D. Trudel once again brings us into the thrilling world of his characters Raven and Josie. In a fictional setting where the United States is more divided than ever, and with Middle East terrorists active and based in the United States, the world is in need of Josie's special, psychic skills now more than ever. Raven is allowed to take the gloves off, and the result is an action-packed thriller. The book makes full use of a variety of military weaponry. Any reader who enjoys para military thrillers would enjoy this book.
