Publisher's Summary

In the very near future, China, now the world's largest industrial producer and consumer of Mideast Oil, passes a law that all new cars manufactured in that nation will be operated on natural gas. Beneath the floor of the South China Sea, around the contested Spratly Islands, billions of gallons of natural gas wait to be mined. But at the center of the Spratlys, the remote but strategic island of Itu Aba is occupied by China's historic enemy, Taiwan.

When the new, power-hungry Chinese President, Tang Qhichen, orders Chinese Naval forces to attack Taiwanese forces on Itu Aba, U.S. President Douglas Surber responds, ordering the U.S. Seventh Fleet to try and quell a burgeoning naval showdown between the two Chinas.

Aboard the submarine tender U.S.S. Emory S. Land, one of the first ships in the naval war zone, is Ensign Stephanie Surber, a recent Naval Academy graduate who is also the First Daughter of the United States. As the Emory S. Land steams into harm's way, Ensign Surber's life is gravely threatened. The President must make a decision. Will he take a stand against evil? Or will he save the life of his daughter?

    "Not even Dick Hill Could Save This One"

    When it comes to Audible books, my husband and I are like a Venn Diagram. We each have books that we individually like and most that we both like. With a library of 800 books It has been unusual for us both to abandon a book before we finish it. Neither one of us could stand this one but not for the same reasons. He hated the preachiness; I disliked the characters and the far fetched plot.

    I honestly do not understand the ratings this book received.

    Story
    "Engaging story taited by misogyny & excess prayer"
    Would you try another book from Don Brown and/or Dick Hill?

    No I would not. Good story, but ruined by all the constant prayer. I would expect in life or death situations that there should be references to prayer and faith. But this just went well beyond that required for storytelling. Furthermore, all the women characters were portrayed as weak and emotional. Even the first daughter. Was made worse by Dick Hill's inability to voice a female as anything other than meek and submissive.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Fire of the Raging Dragon?

    I greatly enjoyed the sequences of military combat. One really doesn't think about the challenges faced by a naval captain when it comes to decisions of shoot/don't shoot.


    What didn’t you like about Dick Hill’s performance?

    I couldn't not stand the way he voiced the president's daughter. He made her sound so meek, unsure of herself, and emotional. At the times when she was probably meant to take a strong stand, he made her out to sound like a little 5 year old saying "daddy, I'm a big girl!" which I would hope was not what the author intended.


    Was Fire of the Raging Dragon worth the listening time?

    If you can put up with the constant praying, horrible portrayal of women, and occasional jabs at the left wing, sure. It was a great story. You just have to put up with a lot of what seems to me to be antiquated ways of thinking that goes along with it.


    Any additional comments?

    If your a chauvinistic, strongly Christian, military man from the 1980's you will love this book. If not, you can probably overlook the things I've mentioned and really enjoy the engaging storyline. It really was difficult to put away at times.
