    Modern and futuristic warfare while finding lost nuclear warheads

    To say that the ¿Dreamland Team¿ is futuristic probably is correct but I am sure that many of the weapons and equipment that are part of this novel do actually exist. This is the sixth Dreamland novel that these two authors have written. If you like military action involving soldiers with nerves of steel, modern, and futuristic airplanes, and drone-like weapons along with electronic equipment that boggles your mind, you will love this book. Lieutenant Colonel Tecumseh ¿Dog¿ Bastien is the leader of Dreamland. The Dreamland group respects and admires Dog¿s leadership. There are those above his rank that think the leadership of such a powerful group should be commanded by a higher ranking officer but for now, Dog is it with all the pressures that come with that leadership. The love life of this group is one that evolves as the story progresses as members do have some loved ones in the same group they are in making military objectives extremely hard at times. But things flow quite well under Dog¿s command. Twenty-five nuclear warheads have been lost during warring factions involving India, Pakistan, and China, with the United States caught in the middle, supposedly friendly with all three nations. On paper that works out well, however, in practice it becomes a game of tag and war to get those warheads before anyone else can. Dreamland was assigned to find the warheads before a nuclear war got started. Using all the modern technology possible, the Dreamland team starts their search, a search that becomes a very dangerous ¿game¿ for all involved. Airplanes, ships, drones, and land troops all search the areas that the latest technology has given them as the most likely scattered locations where these warheads might be found. The battles are carried out in a state of war at least for those on the Dreamland team and the searchers for the other nations, who all are intensely trying to find the dangerous warheads before anyone else does or they get set off and do some extreme damage. You will be on the ships, the airplanes, in the sea trying to get rescued, or on the ground guided by your fellow countrymen and women. There is death on all sides even though there is not a war in progress at the time, but the action and out-guessing your opponents move to get the weapons is as stressful and dangerous as a full out war. You will feel as though you are with these soldiers in their personal and group battles mentally and physically. You will feel every bullet that one of them takes. You will wish you were there to assist in their medical care. You will feel like you are a part of their family, happy when things go properly and hurting so terribly when things go wrong.

    Action packed and will have you on the edge of seat

    I actually the book itself, not the nook version, and it is very good. I have not read the first five in the series but I plan to do so and reread this book. It is amazing how there can be two or more things going at the same time, which can get confusing. But don't let that discourage you, this is the type of book that once you start reading it, you can't put it down.

    Where's the beef

    Dreamland deals with military technology thickly spread over a thin plot. The writing is pathetic, with every character, plane, ship, and weapon having a nickname. I was hoping for a surprise ending - didn't happen. What was Dale 'where did I learn to write' Brown thinking? Of course, he has sold more books than me, and if you love military fiction you may enjoy this. I like a good book, and this did not fit the bill.

    Hectic MilitaryAction Novel

    A very Hectic, action filled novel w/lots of military-jock jargon, plenty of twists & turns. Aviation enthusiasts will really enjoy. Fighter jock will love it. Sometimes gets a bit confusion w/all the names & situations, but well worth the time.
