"In ancient texts, there are stories about men who struck from the shadows, seemingly beyond the reach of death itself. These men were considered part angel, part demon. Their loyalty was to their families, their friends, and their kings. You crossed these men at your peril. And once crossed, there was no crossing back. They were fearless; men of honor who have been known throughout history by different names: Spartan, Viking, Samurai. Today, men like these still strike from the shadows. They are highly prized intelligence agents, military operatives, and assassins. One man is all three. Two days ago, that man was crossed--badly. Now, far from home and surrounded by his enemy, Scot Harvath must battle his way out. With no support, no cavalry coming, and no one even aware of where he is, it will take everything he has ever learned to survive. But survival isn't enough. Harvath wants revenge. In the most explosive novel Brad Thor has ever written, page after captivating page of action, intrigue, loyalty, and betrayal will keep you hooked until the very last sentence and a revelation that will take your breath away"--… (mais)

I think this was my first Brad Thor read. I found it to be an action-packed read that was mostly enjoyable but I found the last quarter (or so) to be a bit over the top with bravado and lacking for me. 3.5 stars. ( )

Started reading this last night and then promptly stayed up way too late trying to finish it. Exciting, engaging and probably the best book in the series to date! ( )

After a major traumatic event, Scot finds himself in the Arctic Circle with Russian mercenaries after him. Initially, they want him alive for all of the information he can provide, but when U.S. pressure, led by a rescue specialist and the Troll (Nicholas) is ramped up, the mercenaries' mission parameters are dead or alive. Scot's training as a Navy SEAL kicks in, especially his SERE skills (Survival, Evasion, Resistance, and Escape.) Not only does he need to stay one step ahead of two-legged soldiers, but there are four legged predators after him as well. After yet another near brush with death, he stumbles first into a cabin belonging to a Sami woodman/trapper, who is beyond help, and eventually into his daughter's medical clinic in a Sami village. Great action, and Scot is driven by rage to take vengeance on the perps responsible for the trauma. Frankly, the vengeance was too rushed, and would have made a great sequel. 4.5 stars. ( )

Without question, Backlash is my favorite Scot Harvath book. From start to finish this has been an extreme survival and emotional journey. A must read! ( )

Good story but nothing special. I've only read a few other Brad Thor novels and have given them all 3.5 stars.

Having only read the series sporadically, I wasn't as emotionally affected by what transpires at the beginning (and I'll be rather vague): Several folks who are close to Scot Harvath are killed and Scot himself is captured. Turns out he's taken to Russia to be interrogated. But while being transported, the plane he's in crashes and he makes his escape. A large bulk of the early book is Harvath surviving the freezing environment.

One of the characters, Nicholas, is a dwarf. Apparently Thor can't think of many ways to remind us he's a dwarf other than to refer to him repeatedly as "little man." This got old quick.

The book's not bad; there are decent survival and hunting-down-(and evading)-the-bad-guy scenes. And the ending is as you'd expect. Again, good not great. ( )
