Reading the second chapter of the Jackson MacKenzie Chronicles literally blew me away, the plot is gripping and the fast-paced action is what makes you turn the pages fast.
What price does Freedom have?
Peace always has a price, too high, but there are men, there are soldiers who are willing to pay that price, with their own blood, despite the Army, their Country, has turned its back on them. There is a deep Patriotism and a sense of Duty without limits. I love it.
These Soldiers, together have faced Hell on many occasions, share many bonds and also share the special and profound relationship of the men who have been engaged in battle.
The struggle for Colonel MacKenzie's survival continues, his battle against his inner demons, his soul is wounded, his spirit betrayed, by the army and by those who know the truth, and they are silent about this infamous accusation against him and his men. But this does not prevent him, once again, from serving his country, it does not prevent him from respecting that Oath, which he pronounced so proudly... ready to Sacrifice himself for a greater good, Justice, the Freedom of his Country. It is the Right Choice.
The author shows us in surprising details, taking a cue from history, trying to be faithful to real events that have shocked the world in order to overwhelm the intensity of the reading. Great. I think the author has carried out careful research on the settings and on the dynamics and techniques of military training. I appreciate it. There will be no lack of battle sounds, tensions, helicopters in flight, which include dangerous, breathless actions, explosions, and firefights… and losses, yes losses. And those who silently feel guilty ... Death is part of Life, even through the pages of a book.
A powerful and engaging and at the same time stimulating book, a book that strikes in the spirit, shaking the deepest emotions of the reader. I cannot describe what I felt crossing the pages of this book, it is not simple but I felt a strong empathy towards the protagonist, I was intrigued by the new emotional ties and by the entry of an unexpected character and not only, respect, pain , anger and despair ... strong interest in the evolution of the story, amazing how through all these dramatic situations the author manages to insert and weave moments that ease the tension, that bring a smile back to the reader, a little joy, but above all moments that warm the heart… Amazing.
Truly an exciting story of courage and sacrifice.
You can't open a book without learning something. I am part of everything I have read.
I will re-read this story and can't wait to pre-order this author's new work whenever possible.
