Brilliant

If you are a fan of IWar, Lights Out, One Second After, the 299 Days series or Tom Clancy novels, you will love this series and if you have gotten this far you probably have. This series really should be a movie series. In light of what happened to the remake of Red Dawn and the villain being changed from China to North Korea which destroyed suspension of disbelif, there is definitely a place in the market for this kind of movie. Never Again is now and it is happening in China. May the people of Hong Kong, Muslims in western China and all of the Chinese people one day receive the freedom and prosperity that they desire and deserve and May catastrophe and devastation in this series never be experienced in any of these United States.

Impressive. most impressive.

this book soon had me guessing. for a long while I was not sure if the outcome; I'm still not. one thing this book does is gives you uncertainty as to where the direction will go. I can't wait to start the next book to see the intimates conclusion. so glad I took a chance in this series.

just finished for the 2nd time in prep for book 6

Even better the 2nd time thru. stoked to start 6! great read, and the back and forth radio traffic between personnel is legit, and the author does a great job delivering it.

Ok, but could have been better

Enjoyed the other books in the series more, but still worth a credit, especially if you are listening in order.

love this series

I have to say that I wasnt expecting much when I started this series but I've been pleasantly surprised. its kept me wondering and engaged the entire time. the story line is crazy but at the same time its scary how these events could easily become reality. there is an extra TWIST at the end of this one though. I'm interested to see how it will play into the next book. happy reading👍🏼😁

Infuriatingly insulting

I understand that this is a work of fiction, My country's defense forces and our intelligence agents will never be as inept and ineffective as this book portrays.
