    Action packed from beginning to end the story and use of short chapters kept me flying through this book. Eric Steele is an Alpha in a secret intelligence unit known as the Program, operating under the authority of the President alone, kind of like a cross between special forces and Ja...

    Caveat: I'm that guy that would yell at the TV when the show 24 got things wrong regarding computers and security. With that out of the way, there is a lot that the author got wrong in this book that turned what was a pretty ok book into a fundamentally frustrating experience for me...

    It took me about 100 pages to really figure out what was going on in the book. I wasn't sure who were the good folks and who were the bad. But once I figured it out I couldn't stop reading. Lots of action. ...

    Okay, I really liked this book. I know I?ve said that about too many of the last books I?ve read but this one is different. The last two that I loved, Savage Country and One Foot in Eden, are both worlds apart from Man of War. Country and Eden are like savory entrees from an expens...

    I just finished this book and what a great ride it was! It?s one of those books that it?s hard to put down. It?s suspenseful, exciting and interesting. I love the main character- Eric Steele. He is resourceful, strong and has a no nonsense attitude which is admirable. I also foun...

    An explosive military action thriller debut! Only a combat vet and gifted writer could produce something this impressively awesome. Generously detailed and relentlessly paced, the geo-political implications of this scenario are frightening beyond words. Speaking of beyond words. the...

    What a great "debut" novel! This was Sean Parnell's first fiction novel, and he slammed through the thriller door. Coming off of the New York Times bestseller Outlaw Platoon, which was an absolutely riveting non-fiction book, this thriller was reminiscent of Jack Carr's relatively rece...

    Sean Parnell's first book, Outlaw Platoon, was a nonfiction account of his time fighting in Afghanistan and was well-received for its deep dive into the lives and minds of the men with whom he fought for his country. But, as he says in his acknowledgments section, he also had an idea f...

    While reading the first chapter, I was reminded of the action movies that my husband loves to watch. The reader is placed immediately into the action - and the movement forward does not stop. As with those action movies that most men enjoy watching, the novel includes scenes which feat...

    I?ve got to start by saying- I very rarely give a book a full 5-Star rating, but I realized about 3/4 of the way through this book, that this was going to be a different review altogether. This book is literally chalked full with everything that makes a great Thriller great...There?...

    An All-American Hero If you?re a fan of the action/thriller genre I can promise you thrills (and chills) from Sean Parnell?s debut into fiction, ?Man of War?. It?s the first in what I hope is a long-running series of Eric Steele?s exploits. Parnell writes with obvious a...

    Authenticity oozes through the print from an author who is an American hero. Eric Steele is another version of an American hero, somehow surviving some amazing battles without being sidelined. I will continue to follow Eric Steele for sure. At the end of the day though, I still seek Ja...

    This book was highly recommended by Lee Child. It is a very propulsive story about the evils that men and women commit and the brave warriors who endeavor to do good. The lead character, Eric Steele, is very likable as is his side-kick Demo. It is interesting that one of the most vile ...
