About the book

In Fire of the Raging Dragon---the second book in bestselling author Don Brown’s Pacific Rim Series---Stephanie Surber is stationed on board a submarine tender in the South China Sea when a naval war breaks out. After a gruesome discovery escalates America’s involvement, Stephanie’s father, U.S. President Douglas Surber, must choose to take a stand against evil … or save the life of his daughter.

My Thoughts

When I applied to review this book, I wanted to try something different than my regular genres…  Something more intense and out of the regular type of books I usually read.   When I am adventurous, I never know if I will enjoy the book or not.  The book is a suspense and I have enjoyed that genre in the past.   But this particular book is written in the context of a war and unfortunately I quickly discovered that it wasn’t speaking to me.

I tried and tried and tried some more during Christmas to read this book but I wasn’t hooked with the story and with the characters.  Mind you I totally realized that many people would enjoy a good war novel with suspense at every corners.   Consequently, if you are the type of person who loves suspense and war type of novels, you might be interested in this book.

Bottom line is that there is a war between China and Taiwan.   The president of the United States need to decide if he will be part of the problem or not.   His hesitation mostly lies in the fact that his own daughter is on board of one of the ships in the area.   How will he decide what to do when a loved one might be caught in the middle of the war?

I don’t know how the book concludes because as I mentioned above I couldn’t finish the book.   And it’s not because the author isn’t good at all…  It’s more because this kind of novels do not speak to me in any way, shape or form.  So please do not base yourself on my opinion but instead search for other reviews for this title.

If you love war type of books with suspense then I suspect you will enjoy Fire of the Raging Dragon.  The book is available at your favourite bookstore, even and


The book is also available on Kindle.
