I loved this book, just like I loved the other two Michael Quinn books 'Roseblood' and 'Night Of The Bonfire'.

Michael rescuing the soldier Devereaux was awesome. And of course I love that Michael blew some stuff up to distract the guards to get them out of the prison.

I like that the story had so much action within its 35 pages. And it didn't feel rushed at all, it felt completely natural.

Also loved when Michael broke Devereaux out and they rode off on the motorcycle. I can't wait to read the next Michael Quinn short story. ( )

Although I received this book free through the author's web page, I found it to be a very good and fast read. Even though this is a short story, it is action packed. It reminds me of a compacted Rambo or Die Hard movie. It has it all, suspense, thrills, explosions, etc., all pact into 35 pages. I look forward to reading more stories in the Michael Quinn series, by this author, Kevin Scott Olson. I would highly recommend this for anyone wanting a quick, but exciting read. Bring on the next one! ( )

This is a short story, only 35 pages... but it packs a punch! Plenty of action, likable characters, believable plot, and danger make this story quite interesting! I look forward to reading more stories by Mr. Olson, and more Michael Quinn stories as well. ( )

This is one of those books that when looking at it you don't know if it is going to do justice with so few of pages to tell the story of an action adventure. And normally it is with similar type of books that you approach them with wariness but I must say this book has surpassed my high expectations for it.

First of all the one thing that slightly confused me and that was the format of the story itself. It started off pretty strong then seemed to jump back into the past before leaping forth again into the future. Whether I interpreted this correctly or not I cannot say since in many books that do this a date is presented or a bit of a timeline description.

Otherwise the characters that were presented in this book were beautifully done whether they were secondary or primary. You had a real touch for them and could see them quite vividly with strong personalities. I love well made-out characters like this - ones that are almost flesh and bone.

And the best part of this book that won't let you put it down was the fact this wasn't another "big shot" hero who was going to take down the enemy singlehandedly with only his mighty strength to destroy all who stand in his way. Instead Quinn proves to be a very intelligent hero who knows when he needs help in situations but when the backup is lacking he knows how to use his wits to get him through with a bit of luck.

This is one character I wouldn't mind reading about again and I can't wait to see what the first book would hold in store. Is Gabriella going to show up again? What will Quinn be facing? So much anticipation....
