Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Greg M. Romaneck
Lester Donovan leads a U.S. Navy SEAL combat team serving in Iraq. Against his better judgment he is forced to go on a covert operation to destroy a weapons cache and take a rogue leader prisoner. Once his team is air lifted to the site they use their specialized training to complete their mission. Then, just as it appears that they have accomplished their objectives, surprises occur that cost blood and leave the survival of Donovan's team in doubt. At a crisis point Donovan's leadership is tested in a way that will affect everyone he commands. In the end Donovan faces his fears and demonstrates personal bravery but will it be enough to turn the tide? Heart of the Enemy is a war story that features action drawn from the real life experiences of combat soldiers. Written in an artful way this is a story that will appeal to readers of military fiction. Additionally, the colorful illustrations that are laced throughout the pages of this action packed story add sparkle to the book in a way reminiscent of graphic novels. These combined qualities make this chapter in the author's "Bloodlines" series a winner. Reviewer: Greg M. Romaneck
