“Strike, Retaliate, Escalate”
Reviewed in the United States on July 5, 2018
This series is amazing and “Crusader One, Book 3” raises the bar even more! Definitely read this series in order, and I now question whether this book could be fully appreciated without reading books 1 and 2 first. Same characters are back, with John Dempsey being the star of the show! Former Navy SEAL, Dempsey now works with Ember, an off-the-grid black ops counterterrorism unit. Kelsey Jarvis runs the unit. The team includes Shane, Grimes, Wang, and Adams; they are determined to find the last of the “a—holes” who killed their friends, the Persian, Behrouz Rostami.
What makes a warrior like Dempsey? “It isn’t the desire to win—it is the refusal to lose.” So much happens in Book 3, you will not be able to put it down! This storyline is detailed and complex with emotional interactions, lots of suspense and action, missions, and surprises! The military equipment may have confused this non-military “girl” 😉, but oh my, this is an awesome and entertaining read!
