Keep them coming. This Dreamland Series is cutting edge reading. Once you start you cannot stop. Can't wait for the next Dreamland Chapter.
Few novelists can craft an aerial battle scene more strategically than former U.S. Air Force Captain Brown, and he and DeFelice are in fine form here!
Like Dale Brown's books, the beginning runs through the technical aspects of operations. It warms up mid way with the personal interaction. If you want a book to read with alot of personal touchy- feely, this is not the book for you. If you like a more straight forward approach in technical read concerning interactions between rivals on the brige of war and conflict, you may enjoy this book.
A showdown between Indian and Chinese navies in the Pacific gives Dreamland the chance to test a new remote-operated underwater probe, Piranha. But tensions erupt into violence, so Dreamland rushes an unnamed bomber project off the drawing board -- and into the sky.
His woefully-inadequate grasp of technology and his faulty research is juxtaposed by his great talent of weaving an intriguing story from his fertile imagination and his skillful characterizations. This is not his best, though an okay read.
As I'm writing this I have just about 20 pages to go. At the front of the book the author lists some of the main characters, I wish he'd listed more and maybe explained some of the tech terms / abbreviations. However, I did enjoy the book. If you like military fiction - Dale Brown does it best. I've read more than a half-dozen of his books. Read it when you're not piloting your megafortress or dodging enemy missles.
