Eagle Station A novel

Dale Brown, 1956-

Book - 2020

"Because its enemies never stop trying to undermine the United States' security, the men and women who serve to protect America must always be vigilant. Few know this better than warriors Brad McLanahan and Nadia Rozek. Newly married, the two are just beginning to settle into their new life together when they are called back into action. Though the Russians were badly defeated by Brad and the Iron Wolf Squadron in their previous bid for world dominance, they are back and doubling down ...on their quest for control of outer space. In addition to their cutting-edge weaponry, they have a formidable new ally: China's energetic and ruthless leader, President Li Jun. To protect America and the rest of the free world from the Russians and the Chinese, the Americans plan to mine the moon's helium-3 resources, which will allow them to fully exploit the revolutionary fusion power technology Brad and his team captured from the Russians aboard the Mars One weapons platform. But Leonov and Li have devised a daring plan of their own. They are building a joint secret base on the moon's far side fortified with a powerful Russian plasma rail gun that can destroy any spacecraft entering lunar orbit. If the heavily armed base becomes operational, it will give America's enemies control over the world's economic and military future. As this latest skirmish in the war for space accelerates, Brad, Nadia, and their compatriots in the Space Force must use their cunning and skill--and America's own high-tech weaponry - to derail the Sino-Russian alliance and destroy their lunar site before it's too late for the U.S. and the entire world."--

Review by Booklist Reviews

So the Russians and the Chinese have teamed up to take control of Earth's moon, which will give them effective control of space. It's up to Brad McLanahan; his wife, Nadia Rozek; and Brad's Space Force colleagues to stop them. But time is running out. The story is enthusiastically told, and that might be enough to satisfy some, but others might be pulled out of the story by prose that is too often clunky, overconcerned with terminology and jargon, and generally flat and simply uninspired. Brown, who has written some first-rate thrillers, including his first novel, Flight of the Old Dog (1987), and The Tin Man (1998), seems lately to rely heavily on research and formula, compelling character design and smooth dialogue falling by the wayside. Still, this will be fine for Brown's devoted fans. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.

Review by Publishers Weekly Reviews

Set in 2022, this exciting military action thriller from bestseller Brown finds American forces still in control of Mars One, the armed Russian space station that a space-borne commando raid captured in 2019's The Kremlin Strike. Since the Russians destroyed most of the U.S. reconnaissance satellites in the previous book, American ground forces are essentially blind, except for intel supplied by commandos who have taken over what's now called Eagle Station. The loss of a battle in space with the Americans persuades Marshal Mikhail Ivanovich Leonov, the mastermind behind the creation of Mars One, and Li Jun, the Chinese president, that the only way they will ever beat their long-standing foe is by combining forces and controlling the newest battlefield, outer space. The key to success is amassing the special fuel needed to fuel Russian fusion reactors, which is only readily available on the moon. As the Russian and Chinese forces close in on their goal, it becomes clear that only the ingenuity of Americans can save the day. Brown's spectacular future space weapons systems are utterly convincing. Tom Clancy fans won't want to miss this one. Agent: Robert Gottlieb, Trident Media Group.
