Black Eagle Force: Eye of the Storm by Buck Stienke
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I absolutely loved the fighting and action scenes. The technical descriptions of the advanced weapons were first rate. It was like reading a dream list for special ops. So many weapons, aircraft, advanced electronic equipment. The homemade EMF 16-gauge nail spittin' coyote gun was also a wonder to behold.
While the initial action as non-stop, bloody and exciting, the story slowed to the pace of a country BBQ complete with sweet tea and a picnic. Unfortunately for our heroes, the villains were really bad, into drugs, arms dealing and even human trafficking, kidnapping people for sex slaves.
Meanwhile, back at the ranch, flirtation was going on full force. Now, we all know men love six-foot blondes with dark blue, almost violet eyes. But how many knew they had expertly applied eyeliner, smokey-grey eyeshadow and glossy red lipstick in the middle of a firefight? The tea and beer continue to pour while the bad guys regroup on their private island.
"All the way back to the ranch, the two beauties carried on like a couple of school girls at a sleepover."
My favorite character is a the red-headed sister, a technical whiz, named Blaze who improved her coil-gun to multibarreled and replaced the 16-gauge nails with 7mm bullets. while her brother flirted with the 6-ft blonde and stirfrying Hunan shrimp, she was busy redesigning her EMF 6-barrel "Gatling". Wow!
Of course there's a conspiracy involving high government officials and the final showdown was exciting as they rescue the sex slaves because some of them were Americans, but not before the hero and the 6-ft blonde share some quiet time in her condo. A bigger problem remains, but I'll leave it to the reader. Suffice it to say, the ending was full of serious weapons, including MIG-29's and of course Blaze saves the day with her incredible brains.
