Publisher's Summary

Wilson shot a glance over his right shoulder at San Ramon. In addition to the blinking of anti-aircraft artillery guns, he could see clouds of smoke on the field from the numerous Slash hits. Breathing through his mouth, he concentrated on getting fast and maintaining a slight climb. Bright fireballs of AAA shot by him in groups of three and four, orderly trails from low to high. His body was tense, ready for impact. He felt and heard the thud behind, on his right. Terrified, he twisted his body in the ejection seat to see what he could, pushing his helmet and goggles with his left hand to see over his wing. Through the narrow field of view of the goggles, he sensed flickering behind him. He then felt the airplane yaw right. Both were signs he had lost thrust on the right side. Sonofabitch!

Declared Hostile - fantastic.

Declared Hostile was even better than Raven One! Colorful characters, well developed. Put me on the edge of my seat a lot. Combat scenes made me feel like I was in the cockpit! Great follow up to Raven One. You should read this book.

Kevin Miller Scores Again!

Miller does a masterful job adding virtue into his stories without ever sounding preachy. It's always a delight hearing our main protagonist; Wilson and the squadron get together they struggle through military life because it feels authentic. Miller (a former fighter pilot) knows what military life is really like in terms of gender relations, diversity, leadership(good/bad). The flying sequences are fun and exciting while being very nicely detailed for someone who loves aviation. My only complaint is the portrayal of the Venezuelan drug cartels is a little on the silly side, but this keeps the story from getting too dark making it accessible to young adults.

A great read!

I found this book to be very well written. Declared hostel is well researched, and the characters are quite believable, as is the story itself. This would be a great story for anyone who is interested in military action novels, or related genres.

Great book and good narration except....

Great job by everyone involved but with one exception that kept driving me nuts. A turbine is a part inside a jet engine. A turban is a towel worn on the head as a head covering. someone should probably tell the narrator the difference 🙄, other than that Great job!

Language

Unnecessary vulger language. Otherwise, a great listen. If you are not comfortable with frequent use of the F word and several others, skip this book regardless of the story and narration, both of which were first rate. I struggled through several volumes and despite wanting to hear the continuation of the story, I have surpassed my tolerance limit and don't plan on purchasing additional books from this author without thoroughly vetting them first.

Good but not as good as the first.

The author maintains his exceptionally authentic narrative of squadron life. The stroy is derailed by the toxic relationship between some Junior officers and a marginally realistic military action in Latin America. If you like these kinds of books you'll enjoy this one, but it is a shadow compared to Raven One.

Pilot knowledge GREAT - ground stuff not so much

It's amazing to hear the techno jargon of a former Navy aviator but sadly, when it comes to firearms, he needs to go back to basic. That aside, this was a very interesting story in that it takes place in South America. The author's description of the inter-military politics that takes place is fairly accurate as well. SOUTHCOM is not a high priority unified command and the political and military issues that causes is well captured in this book. Sadly, there are a few unfinished story lines here that never get answered in the next book (such as what was happening with "Flip" Wilson's wife - and why she never responded to his letters). Anyway, an entertaining book mixed with some accurate military-political issues. Note to author: ITS NOT A CLIP, ITS A MAGAZINE. Oh and a B.A.R? Really? We still have those in the inventory??? End rant.

chill with the religion

As someone whos served in the navy the sheer colume of prayer and religion is overboard. In my 8 years on navy vessels there are far more nonreligious people then religious. The evening prayers aboard are loathed by all and quite annoying. The other problem is how wilson talks about the enlisted personnel like there some cheery go lucky group always happy to serve is completely off the mark. Goes to show the disconnect officers have of actual enlisted duties. In truth they loath the officers and all the luxuries they're offered and quite often have to deal with stupidity on extreme levels when dealing with them. Also, any catholic priest sent to the jungle of south America would have been sent there for molesting children, you know, like they actually do in real life.

Not as good as the first book

It was a struggle to get through it. Very disappointing. Pass on it. That’s it.
