I think what I like most about Heppner is his political incorrectness. While other authors are jumping on the global warming band wagon, VH is talking about global cooling. While other authors are rehashing the old cold war with Russia, or fighting aliens or wondering off into alternate histories, VH is asking What If, about something that could actually happen. My history teachers in high school often talked about every war we ever enter was a surprise to us and we were never prepared. I assume it will be the same for WW 3.

If so, you may want to stay away from this series. Keep in mind as I tear this apart, I gave it five stars on all fronts. I lost count on how many times Paul said, that it didn't matter cause he was about to die. It may have happened in every chapter. IT WAS GOOD TO DIE WITH YOUR FRIENDS, THIS WAS IT, IT WOULD BE THE LAST TIME, etc... The cheese in this book is very thick, if included in the movie, would make it a B for sure. A research assistant ends up making most of the war strategy for the U.S. The generals are just too stupid. An Assassin hired to kill Paul, warns him ahead of time that he is going to kill him. Of course they become great buds. That being said, I did like Romo, Paul's new side kick, especially since Paul is less hot headed and becoming more legit, then book one. There is a lot of military tech in this and less politics. While I dislike politics on imaginary worlds, I love it on the world I live in.
You do not have to read book one to understand or enjoy this. I liked book one just a little better, but if this is on sale, get it. If not on sale, get book one.

Normally part two is at best mediocre, but V.H. did not disappoint. I enjoyed the Preface, he calls this a “What If” story. The parallels to today’s geopolitical events are a bit to close to shrug off. The best fiction always has some reality to it. If you could package adrenaline, ass-kicking, and patriotism into a book, then this is the one. I dinged this book by one star on the story catagory. I did this because he ends this on to much of a cliff hanger, and I hate that. Waiting for book three.
