Riveting and suspenseful 4 Stars October 20, 2015
"Kneel to the Fallen" is the first War Boys Novel that I've
read. It is engaging and riveting - keeping me in suspense of what happens next
and will any more of my favorite characters get killed off. The story takes
readers to Burma, the U.K and Scotland, offering us readers a glimpse of those
countries and political make-up. The story line is intriguing and plausible,
keeping readers wondering just how this team was going to handle the many
threats thrown their way. It also confirms our thoughts about terrorists and
dope runners, they are all ruthless and fanatical!
This War Boys novel is
similar in nature to other "teams" and their missions by authors such
as C.G. Cooper and Wayne Stinnett. My only complaint is the typos and extra
words added in the story that would have been caught otherwise by an
editor...tlhis criticism takes into consideration that the author used
Austrailian prose to produce this story. Another critical error is when the
Burmese hit squad was making the hit on Daniel and Cassandra, the author
confused the existence of one of the hitmen. First, he is named correctly, then
the name changes to the name of the Burmese hitman that was killed earlier,
then he returns again to the correct name.
The story kept my interest
and moved along at a good pace. I'd recommend, "Kneel to The Fallen"
to those readers who appreciate stories about these kinds of special teams
(ex-military) who come together in the fight of good vs. evil. I also plan to
purchase the author's first book, Horns of the Minotaur and hope to find it
just as good. Great story Mr. Wood!

I'd been looking
forward to the further exploits of The War Boys and this didn't disappoint.
Accustomed to the fast-moving action and drama of Horns of the Minotaur, this
sequel stands alone but also further develops the characters we've come to know
intimately. I'd really like to see this on screen. Meanwhile, can't wait for
the next episode.
A tough mission, a great story 4 Stars January 12, 2015
Another good read. Always something developing as the plot unfolds, just
like his previous book, The Horns of the Minatour, I couldn't put it down.
The research regarding locations and attention to technical detail of the
weapons and their capabilities intrigued me, which made the entire story so
much more real.
Great work, I look forward to his next book.
It's up there with the best in my opinion.... 4.5 Stars from me.
