Terror Never Sleeps is a riveting military thriller that takes the reader on an exhilarating roller coaster ride as they follow Jack Gunn, a Navy SEAL and head of the Counterterrorism Task Force (Force) race frantically across the world in search of his wife Nina and son Barett, who were kidnapped from their Virginia home and taken hostage by a group of Islamic terrorists. Author Richard Blomberg weaves a realistic, fast paced, and action packed suspenseful tale that easily draws the reader into Jack's relentless pursuit of the terrorist group, while Nina struggles to survive the terrorist's brutal daily infliction of mental and physical torture techniques. Written in the third person narrative, the reader follows the harrowing trials and tribulations that Jack and Nina endure throughout the story. There is enough drama, intrigue, suspense, and pulse stopping twists and turns that keeps the reader sitting on the edge of their seats wondering what would happen next. I experienced the gamut of emotions as I read this story, and I couldn't help but feel compassion and cheer on Jack, Nina, and Barett as their story unfolded. Author Richard Blomberg calls upon his prior Navy experience to weave a hauntingly realistic tale that painfully reflects the sign of our times dealing with counter terrorism, the heroism of our Navy SEALS and other military personnel, the horrifying brutality of the terrorist activity, and the trauma that it brings to many families worldwide. I really enjoyed following Jack Gunn's journey in this second installment of the Jack Gun Thriller Series so much that I am going to have to go back and read Warpath, the first book in the series, just so I can get my Jack Gunn fix! Terror Never Sleeps is a compelling and powerful military thriller that will keep you captivated with its heart pounding nonstop action, and leave you completely spent at its surprising conclusion!

Check out the full review at Kriters Ramblings Counter terrorism, characters in Virginia, Afghanistan and beyond, and civilian family members all made for a nail biting, page whipping book that made it quite hard to just put it down. Jack Gunn is happily married and after some heartbreak, they have a child, but early in the book, this bliss is put into jeopardy due to Jack's intense job and he must put all the pieces back together. Being fiction, I know that things are embellished at a point, but in my heart while reading I was wondering what of this story and Jack's mission and encounters could be considered truth. The author does such a fantastic job of making each part of this mission heart stopping and the reader just keeps reading and reading hoping for resolution. At each point, I was holding my breath and I loved that the book dipped into a different character's perspective to give the story more fullness.
I love the simple, yet descriptive cover. This military thriller is so realistic it pissed me off, had me screaming at the characters and made we wish I could crawl through the pages and kick some terrorist butt too. Characters: Jack, Nina, his wife, Dewey, Jack’s right hand, Travis, his brother and many others who act out their supporting roles. Who will be the final judge, jury and executioner? Who doesn’t make it back? Jack Gunn returned home from his mission, only to find his wife and son missing and the house covered with blood and bullet holes. He’d been in Palestine, negotiating a deal requiring the release of his biggest enemy, the last in the line of the El-Hashem family. A BIG mistake! A badal had been declared and one of them would die. Jack and Travis are orphaned brothers raised by Sioux elders. One is a Navy Seal, the other a doctor. Jack’s wife, Nina, was also raised believing in the Sioux way. I love the mystical connection. The characters have an ability to see, connect and talk in the spirit world. It adds that something extra that takes writing to another level. Jack is the head of the CTF, Counterterroism Task Force, whose motto is: Terror Never Sleeps. Nina suffers tremendous physical and mental torture – fear for her child, being beaten, possibly raped, kicked, drugged. They beat her down mentally and she fought the urge to give up. Could it get worse? Oh yes, much worse. I am appalled at Richards description of the abuse some of the characters would inflict on each other, just because they could. It all seems so real. When you read this, its almost like hearing of the horrible killings on the news. Who would use a man’s family, his wife and child, to get revenge? Don’t the bad guys have rules too? Not when it comes to these guys. They are pure evil. They rejoice in the torture they inflict on others. How they are able to do that, I cannot figure out. Nina is no wimp. I love her. She is an unlikely hero and I only hope I could do as well as her in a similar situation. She has a shotgun in hand and uses it! She has survived breast cancer, so she can survive whatever this animal will throw at her too. At her lowest, she would think of her son and that would give her that something extra she needed to go on. Seals – the elite of the elite. They have an amazing sense of right and sacrifice. They have some fantastic weapons at their disposal, too. I loved reading about the mini plane with grenades. Good job. Read a book like this and you, too, may believe in torture for info, and the premise, shoot first and take no prisoners. This novel will tell you why there must be secret teams and missions, so our enemies don’t know what we are doing. There is tons of action and the pacing kept me reading from beginning to end. Terrorists, dirty bombs, kidnapping, child abduction, badal, nuclear bombs and Native American mysticism. A rich combination of genres that blended so well I could almost believe it was real. From the shores of the United States to Timbuktu the characters each struggle to survive and I was happy to travel with them. I received this novel in return for an honest review.
A great book to pick up while you are snowed in! A thriller that will keep you on edge! Great plot and characters! This book will have you wanting more, it will have you trying to figure it out before you know what's going to happen next! If you haven't read this book yet, I strongly recommend that you do! A very talented author! *Received for an honest review*
