The Kremlin Strike by Dale Brown

I continue to enjoy this series featuring future political intrigue and conflict. The year is 2021. Brown imagines technological advances like space planes capable of innovative warfare, specialized bots, advanced laser pulse rockets, hybrid engines and more. He gives readers a good idea of what might happen when a rogue enemy leader implements a secret and deadly plan to dominate space. Thank goodness the Iron Wolf Squadron and SkyMasters are one step ahead of him with their advanced technology. They battle against seemingly impossible odds. Only quick thinking and dare devil action will enable them to survive.

Brown includes a good balance of character development and space war suspense. Most of the plot revolves around saving the world and the space above it from evil domination, however. I think some of the vehicles and warfare implements could have had a little more description to help visualize them. Perhaps readers who enjoy military novels will do better than I did picturing the battles.

A good novel for readers who enjoy action packed futuristic warfare.

You can read a sample here.

My rating: 4/5 stars.
