Man of War (Eric Steele #1)
Eric Steele is the best of the best—an Alpha—an elite clandestine operative assigned to a US intelligence unit known simply as the "Program." A superbly trained Special Forces soldier who served several tours fighting radical Islamic militants in Afghanistan, Steele now operates under the radar, using a deadly combination of espionage and brute strength to root out his enemies and neutralize them.But when a man from Steele’s past attacks a military convoy and steals a nuclear weapon, Steele and his superiors at the White House are blindsided. Moving from Washington, DC, to the Middle East, Europe, and Africa, Steele must use his considerable skills to hunt this rogue agent, a former brother-in-arms who might have been a friend, and find the WMD before it can reach the United States—and the world is forever changed.

After several tours fighting terrorists in Afghanistan, Eric Steele now serves as part of an elite, top-secret unit known simply as the Program.Originally, after carrying his commander to safety following an attack on his Special Forces team, Steele was nominated for the prestigious Medal of Honor. But instead of a high-profile ceremony and photo-op, the request was halted and Steele was given something else instead. . . The chance to kill bad guys without the abundance of government oversight and bureaucratic red tape that slowed him down in the Army.Spoken about only in whispers, the Alpha Program is comprised of nine of the most hardened and seasoned badasses the United States military has to offer. Each Alpha answers directly to the president, and each operator is responsible for covering a specifically assigned geographical territory, thus giving the commander-in-chief a third option when diplomacy won’t work and starting a lengthy war is out of the question. When all else fails, it’s up to the Program’s operators to get the job done, and Eric Steele, codenamed Stalker 7, is the unit’s most lethal member — the alpha of the Alphas. The story starts 100 miles outside of Tunis, where a man named Nate West leads an assault on an armed convoy — kicking off a chilling sequence that puts readers firmly behind the scope of West’s Barrett .50 cal sniper rifle.It turns out that the convoy had been carrying a small nuclear weapon to a secret location, and the weapon is now in the possession of West — who plans to use it to attack America, the country he feels betrayed him four years prior. Complicating matters even more is the revelation that the convoy was actually part of a CIA operation, suggesting that West and his men had intimate details of the spy agency’s whereabouts. It also raises questions about Director Robin Styles, who is all too quick to try and erase any record of the agency’s presence in Tunisia.At the center of everything is Eric Steele, who in another life was once close to West. Steele was there when Nate was thought to have been killed, and he grieved the loss of his friend. Now, he’s faced with the shocking and devastating reality that his former teammate has gone rogue and is knee-deep in a plan to strike a blow to America. From brothers-in-arms to warriors on opposite sides of a raging conflict, Steele is tasked with his most personal mission yet. . . stopping Nate West at all costs in order to save millions of innocent lives. As Steele blazes a trail from Washington D.C. across the Middle East, Europe, and Africa in search of West, Parnell does a solid job developing other characters (Demo, Steele’s buddy and fellow operator, is sure to be a fan-favorite) as the story unfolds. One of the book’s more memorable scenes involves Steele performing a HALO jump using an MK11 Advance Jumper’s Helmet that was developed by DARPA, which is fitted with a holographic display that functions like something right out of the Marvel universe. Obviously, Parnell knows his stuff when it comes to the military and how special forces operators walk, talk, and handle themselves on and off the battlefield. At twenty-four years old, he was named the commander of a forty-man infantry platoon tasked with rooting out Pakistan-based insurgents from a mountain valley along Afghanistan’s eastern frontier. Later, they became known as the Outlaws, and Parnell’s captivating nonfiction story (Outlaw Platoon) touches on everything from brotherhood to what war is really like, all told through his riveting first-hand account.Here, with Man of War, Parnell brings that same raw honesty to his story. Steele and the other characters speak and move with the kind of realism that only someone who’s been there and done that can re-create on the page. Some readers may struggle, at least initially, with all the military terminology and acronyms, but veteran readers of the genre will be just fine. It’s also worth noting that this isn’t a straight-up military thriller, as Parnell mixes in political elements as well, expanding his target audience in the process. While some aspects aren’t altogether new (readers are used to seeing top-secret programs designed to circumvent laws and regulations in order to dispatch threats as they pop up) Parnell does offer a fresh take on things that allow his characters to stand out in a crowded genre.Basically, if you like action, conspiracies, and bold, larger-than-life characters. . . this book is for you. Falling somewhere between Brad Thor’s Scot Harvath and Brad Taylor’s Pike Logan, Eric Steel is a formidable new protagonist whom readers will love following around and watching as he leaves a trail of dead bad guys in his wake. Man of War hits fast, hard, and never lets up for a second. . . Sean Parnell really knows his stuff, and this thriller is not to be missed.Book Details Author: Sean ParnellSeries: Eric Steele #1Pages: 368 (Hardcover)ISBN: 0062668781Publisher: William MorrowRelease Date: September 11, 2018Book Spy Rating: 8.5/10Order Now: https://amzn.to/2HmmkCAPraised as “one of today’s finest book reviewers” by New York Times bestselling author Gayle Lynds, Ryan Steck (“The Godfather of the thriller genre” — Ben Coes) has “quickly established himself as the authority on mysteries and thrillers” (Author A.J.

I know I’ve said that about too many of the last books I’ve read but this one is different. The last two that I loved, Savage Country and One Foot in Eden, are both worlds apart from Man of War. Country and Eden are like savory entrees from an expensive restaurant, flavor that stays with you for days. Man of War is more like chocolate and popcorn, tasty and light. Man of War is an action adventure with a little romance for spice. This genre is overcrowded to say the least but the author pulls it off. This one stands head and shoulders above the others. I am a big Gray Man and Jack Reacher fan (was a Reacher fan) but this one blows both of them out of the water (Reacher hasn’t been good for a while, the last five books by my estimation. Reacher isn’t flawed. When a car cuts him off on a lonely highway and six thugs step out there isn’t any question of the outcome there is just five long drawn out pages in how he is going to do it). Man of War has a tired and worn out premise, a nuke has gone missing and our hero has to find it to avert a world war. However, the author writes from a boots on the ground history that gives the read a real sense of authenticity. The prose does not carry it by any means but it’s not supposed to when you’re talking about chocolate and popcorn. I have to say I really loved this book and highly recommend it. Great book. I’m excited to see the author’s next one. The sophomore effort in a new series is always a tough pull, so we’ll see.David Putnam the author of The Bruno Johnson series.

    An All-American Hero If you’re a fan of the action/thriller genre I can promise you thrills (and chills) from Sean Parnell’s debut into fiction, “Man of War”. It’s the first in what I hope is a long-running series of Eric Steele’s exploits. Parnell writes with obvious authority on tactical combat maneuvers, weapons, etc but he’s also an accomplished writer. Parnell’s protagonist is an all-American type, ala Brad Thor’s Scott Harvath, which is high on my list of favorite fictional characters.

The introduction of Meg Harden is a definite plus in my opinion. She’s intelligent, talented, confident in her own expertise and is no slouch in a tough situation. Plus, I loved her sass. This gem delves into political chicanery, a wicked power struggle, and throws in a treasonous act that will keep you flipping pages well into the night. There’s a lot going on but it’s tightly woven with no throwaway verbiage. I’m definitely looking forward to more Eric Steele adventures. Four and a half stars!

    Authenticity oozes through the print from an author who is an American hero. Eric Steele is another version of an American hero, somehow surviving some amazing battles without being sidelined. I will continue to follow Eric Steele for sure. At the end of the day though, I still seek Jack Jr., Dingo and the rest as the #1 team that I have followed thanks to Mr. Clancy.

If you liked it, you'll enjoy this novel. I know it gets said too often, but like Jack Carr, this has a Vince Flynn/Brad Thor feel to it.The action is non-stop, and this novel twists and turns all of the way until the last chapter. One thing that I thoroughly enjoyed were Parnell's similes that he used. They were funny, timely, and extremely accurate. For example, one of my favorites, "Meg's senses came to slowly, like a computer after a hard-reset." This just shows you how good of a writer Sean Parnell is.I thought this book was gripping, and (I listened to the audiobook) I thought narrator R.C. Bray did a fantastic job. His low, gravelly voice was perfect, and I hope to hear more books narrated by him throughout the thriller genre. I highly recommend this thriller. It was a great listen, and I enjoyed it so much, I finished it in one day. Don't hesitate! Also, if you haven't checked out Parnell's non-fiction Outlaw Platoon, do yourself a favor and give that a listen too.

    Sean Parnell's first book, Outlaw Platoon, was a nonfiction account of his time fighting in Afghanistan and was well-received for its deep dive into the lives and minds of the men with whom he fought for his country. But, as he says in his acknowledgments section, he also had an idea for a novel, and the success of Outlaw Platoon got him in the door of an agent and publisher for Man of War.Eric Steele is one of the Alphas, a clandestine set of operatives who handle particularly rough jobs to ach Sean Parnell's first book, Outlaw Platoon, was a nonfiction account of his time fighting in Afghanistan and was well-received for its deep dive into the lives and minds of the men with whom he fought for his country. But, as he says in his acknowledgments section, he also had an idea for a novel, and the success of Outlaw Platoon got him in the door of an agent and publisher for Man of War.Eric Steele is one of the Alphas, a clandestine set of operatives who handle particularly rough jobs to achieve US intelligence and military objectives. They often operate outside established guidelines and are answerable only to the highest levels of the administration. After finishing a mission, Eric learns that one of his own former contacts and friends has gone missing -- along with the portable nuclear device he created. He's tasked with finding out what happened and recovering the nuke. But he learns that his opponent is Nate West, his own mentor and trainer believed to have died in an explosion set by the allies of one of the many men West had killed or captured. Only Nate didn't die, he wants revenge on the administration officials who he believes set him up, killed his family and almost killed him and he has a nuclear device to do it. With the initially unwilling and unwelcome assistance of CIA agent Meg Harden, Steele and his handler Demo have to figure out Nate's next move and stop him before he can get hold of a way to detonate his deadly new prize.Parnell has a great wealth of technical knowledge and the way that technology has shifted some parts of modern warfare. He writes a great action scene, injecting a sort of swashbuckling attitude into his combat that a lot of other espionage thriller writers either won't or can't do. Both hero and villain have the proper swagger one expects of the well-trained badass, and Meg is no slouch in that department herself.The story surrounding those scenes is a lot weaker, and the characters other than those on the sharp end a lot shallower and cartoonish. Nate's backstory may have been meant to lend him some sympathy and pathos, but he's basically a too much of a one-note evil sadist for it to work. One of the key behind-the-scenes villains is a woman in a high position of authority whose ambition to succeed a weak president led to disaster for some of those serving under her -- and who's a predatory lesbian to boot. A plotline regarding the health of the president and the way the vice-president is being forced to carry more and more of the weight of guiding Steele's mission has some nice personal touches but adds more fog than focus.Man of War offers some hints that Parnell might be able to create an intriguing series with Steele and serves up some potentially interesting characters. With one novel under his belt he may have learned some things he wants to do differently in order to rely less on stereotypes and pet peeves and more on more realistically drawn non-protagonists. If he doesn't, there's no shortage of better series and better characters to occupy a reader's time. But if he does he might place a solid new set of reads into the pipeline.Original available here.

    A new younger author which reminded me of a mix of Tom Clancy and David Baldacci. Action packed. It is a debut for this character, but I like the way the reader is dropped into the story and one thinks you missed something by not reading the prequel. Reads more like a movie with a high body count. Perhaps it was a guilty pleasure, but for me it was a pleasure to read.Have a GoodReads and include this book.
