The fast pace is helped along by some of the very short chapters such as on page 84 and 85, which adds a feeling of urgency.

This book is satisfactory in production quality and cover design. The physical materials, printing, and binding are mostly of professional quality.

The image on the front cover is pleasing and colorful and relates to the title, which is also easy to read. The back cover’s font is too small and gives away too much of the plot. Pages are clean but margins should be justified. There are no headers where author and book title ought to be.

Good guys, bad guys, military people on both sides works. The main good guy is flawed, which makes Paul interesting.

Keeping all the characters straight is done well with the author’s idea of including locations at the beginning of each chapter help keep everything straight. Witty phrases such as on page 104 (“Like a family picnicking at the base of Mt. St. Helens.”) and other dialog is uplifting or scary.
