Publisher's Summary

North Korea has one of the world's largest standing armies, capable of unleashing a massive arsenal of chemical and nuclear weapons. With an unstable government, led by the Kim dynasty under absolute dictator Kim Jong Un, North Korea more closely resembles an organized crime ring than a real nation-state. Millions live on the edge of starvation while Pyongyang's ruthless generals, crooked bureaucrats, and vicious secret police wage a covert war against each other to expand their rival fiefdoms. Red Phoenix Burning imagines the collapse of this corrupt regime, an implosion that triggers a bloody civil war among the North's brutal factions. As the conflict worsens, the world is dragged into a violent and rapidly widening confrontation amid North Korea's shattered ruins, right to the edge of an all-out war that could engulf the entire civilized world.

Fans of the original Red Phoenix will be delighted to see favorite characters like Colonel Kevin Little, Brigadier General Tony Christopher, and Colonel Rhee Han-Gil returning to battle, older and wiser, alongside new cast of heroes and villains. Red Phoenix Burning will also offer listeners a deeper look behind today's headlines of turmoil and uncertainty - a look made all the more profound by the in-depth knowledge of war, military technology, and geopolitics brought to bear by Larry Bond and his co-authors.

    "Good story, horrible narration!"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Yes, I'd change the narrator. The narrator made made every character sound like a teenage kid!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Didn't get that far into the book


    Would you be willing to try another one of Patrick Lawlor’s performances?

    No


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Probably


    Any additional comments?

    This had the potential to be Larry Bonds best book, unfortunately narration made it impossible for me to finish

    "Excellent sequel."

    Not quite as much military action as it's predecessor, but an engaging story nonetheless. Patrick Lawler, of course, did an outstanding performance as usual.

    "Great sequel!"

    This book was a great sequel to Red Phoenix. In the book, the characters from the last book came alive again. Unlike most war episodes, this book is a win-win for all parties involved in the war.

    "Ok sequel to the original"

    I red the Original Red Pheonix when it came out in the late 80s, more than once. It was on par with Clancy's Red Storm Rising (which Bond assisted with). While this was good, and it was fun to here from charcuterie like Little, Rhee, and Saint again....this didn't quite live up to my expectations. The story of a collapsed N Korea is likely though, so it kept my interest.

    Story
    "Poor character development, totally unrealistic, poor performance"

    A good story helps you feel like it is plausible - colonels and individual generals accepting surrender without official gov't approval? Really?

    Dialogue is far too predictable, very amateur The performer tries hard but doesn't have a true range of characters

    Story
    "Confused..."

    This is a very good story. However, this is "too much book" for this narrator. As an audio recording with this narrator it is so confusing to figure out whether it's the American Military, the South Korean military or North Korean Military speaking. There is little or no difference between the voices of the characters. This book would have been better served by a more accomplished narrator such as Jay Snyder, Lou Diamond Philips or Scott Brick, for example. I don't like to be frustrated when listening to a book and I don't like to constantly rewind to figure out who is speaking. It's too bad because the story is very good. This is one book where you may be best served in reading it rather than listening to it.

    "Dismal Sequel"
    What disappointed you about Red Phoenix Burning?

    Just about everything. I enjoyed the first book in the series, This failed at every level.

    Nothing by this author.

    The narrator was OK. He did the best he could I'm sure.


    What character would you cut from Red Phoenix Burning?

    Every character resurrected from the first book.
