Publisher's Summary

Wilson shot a glance over his right shoulder at San Ramon. In addition to the blinking of anti-aircraft artillery guns, he could see clouds of smoke on the field from the numerous Slash hits. Breathing through his mouth, he concentrated on getting fast and maintaining a slight climb. Bright fireballs of AAA shot by him in groups of three and four, orderly trails from low to high. His body was tense, ready for impact. He felt and heard the thud behind, on his right. Terrified, he twisted his body in the ejection seat to see what he could, pushing his helmet and goggles with his left hand to see over his wing. Through the narrow field of view of the goggles, he sensed flickering behind him. He then felt the airplane yaw right. Both were signs he had lost thrust on the right side. Sonofabitch!

chill with the religion

As someone whos served in the navy the sheer colume of prayer and religion is overboard. In my 8 years on navy vessels there are far more nonreligious people then religious. The evening prayers aboard are loathed by all and quite annoying. The other problem is how wilson talks about the enlisted personnel like there some cheery go lucky group always happy to serve is completely off the mark. Goes to show the disconnect officers have of actual enlisted duties. In truth they loath the officers and all the luxuries they're offered and quite often have to deal with stupidity on extreme levels when dealing with them. Also, any catholic priest sent to the jungle of south America would have been sent there for molesting children, you know, like they actually do in real life.

Declared Hostile - fantastic.

Declared Hostile was even better than Raven One! Colorful characters, well developed. Put me on the edge of my seat a lot. Combat scenes made me feel like I was in the cockpit!

Great follow up to Raven One. You should read this book.

A great read!

I found this book to be very well written. Declared hostel is well researched, and the characters are quite believable, as is the story itself. This would be a great story for anyone who is interested in military action novels, or related genres.

Awesome story!

Amazing story!!

Narrator could have been coached on military jargon better. Broke immersion everytime he spelled out an acronym instead of saying it.

Another excellent military thriller

A great read if limited in scope. The book touches on some ancillary topics but focuses mainly on events surrounding carrier operations and it's personnel. It would have been a better read if additional political aspects were addressed such as details on the Venezuelan government or the US congress which was apparently in recess while an undeclared war was prosecuted.

Still, Capt MIller is a master story teller and I enjoyed the book very much, particularly the detailed technical descriptions of carrier operations and aircraft.

Absolutely excellent!

Kevin Miller’s best work yet! Incredible story, carrying the credibility of a retired Captain as the author. Compelling characters and complex character development, moral questions, leadership, service, and a thought provoking ending.

A Second gripping read from Kevin Miller

Plenty of excitement for those who love naval/military fiction. This book, like the first in the series, is filled with exciting combat scenes, along with the everyday personalities in ships and squadrons that cross over into how military personnel perform under the stress of adversity. This adds a level of reality that is not found in many books of this genre.
The narration is also excellent, and I recall none of the "annoying" mispronunciations of ships and/or locations in this audiobook.

Kevin Miller Scores Again!

Miller does a masterful job adding virtue into his stories without ever sounding preachy. It's always a delight hearing our main protagonist; Wilson and the squadron get together they struggle through military life because it feels authentic. Miller (a former fighter pilot) knows what military life is really like in terms of gender relations, diversity, leadership(good/bad). The flying sequences are fun and exciting while being very nicely detailed for someone who loves aviation. My only complaint is the portrayal of the Venezuelan drug cartels is a little on the silly side, but this keeps the story from getting too dark making it accessible to young adults.

overall fun but filled with authors beliefs

I will be writing this review on a smart phone at work so forgive the grammar and structure please.

This and all the authors books are very fun and feel rooted in reality.

however the authors opinions or beliefs about women in the service come through so strongly they practically bludgeon you. The same can be said about religion and the media.

the author trys to slyly convince you by narration not even having the good graces most of the time to have a character commentary that all media gives the military a terrible time.

the author suggests accountability and freedom of press is a bad thing. Which for me seriously detracts from a good story and a otherwise praiseworthy author.

women religion and media are the focus points for this man's writing style. it's very strange because he's a good writer in spite of his attempts at feeding you ideology.

my 2 cents
