Meltdown - Book Review

This was a good book to read. What made this book interesting was the fact that it was basically from a female's perspective as she attempted to fit in and lead a special operations team called Task Force Valor. Since being captured in her last mission, she really wanted to redeem herself, but struggled with her confidence as she led a group of men to battle. Author Chuck Holton also gives us a view of some of the men's thoughts and feelings as they travel from the United States to their undercover mission in dangerous territories.

A global war has started which could reach catastrophic proportions. As a result, the U.S. Special Ops team travels to Chernobyl, where ghosts of past disasters are nothing compared to the nuclear nightmare about to unfold.

With CIA Agent Mary “ Phoenix ” Walker heading her first Special Ops mission and Master Sergeant Bobby Sweeney fighting demons on and off the battlefield, Task Force Valor races to stop a terrorist threat in the Ukraine before Europe is turned into a radioactive wasteland.

But when the terror reaches American shores, the team is powerless to help until they can save themselves. And when they finally track down the source of the chaos, what they find is worse than anything they could have imagined.

A fast paced book for the military enthusiast.
