Really good story book

In my role in the Royal Navy Reserve I am part of the Maritime Trade Operations branch that did a lot of work based out of Dubai regarding Somalian Pirates. It was nice to be able to relate to the story and that the actions taken were accurate. Well read and enjoyable to listen to.

Another awesome book by chris b!

I've read Chris Bradford's books before and the young samurai series and I loved loved loved it! I loved those young samurai series so much that I read it three times and it's entirety. I didn't know what to expect going into the bodyguards series but the first book was amazing and the second book was also awesome. The books have some adult themes, like violent death and physical trauma, but they also carry the running theme that if it first you don't succeed you make yourself better so that the next time you'll come out on top and that's a really great mantra to live by. I love the books and I'll keep reading the series I only wish that the other bodyguards series books were on audible.
