Another book full of action, I love all of Matthew Reilly books and the entire scarecrow series has been incredible. It’s been great to see scarecrow back again!

There’s a few really gruesome scenes in this book that certainly adds to the thrill. The emotional ties are also so much more real in this book. I feel that this flows on from reading the whole series. There’s many references to previous books that make the relationships between the team members so tangible.

If you have the chance, I highly recommend this read!

Blurb

At an abandoned Soviet base in the Arctic, the battle to save the world has begun…

THE SECRET BASE
It is a top-secret base known only as Dragon Island. A long-forgotten relic of the Cold War, it houses a weapon of terrible destructive force, a weapon that has just been re-activated…

A RENEGADE ARMY
When Dragon Island is seized by a brutal terrorist force calling itself the Army of Thieves, the fate of the world hangs in the balance, and there are no crack units close enough to get there in time to stop the Army setting off the weapon.

ONE SMALL TEAM
Except, that is, for a small equipment-testing team up in the Arctic led by a Marine captain named Schofield, call-sign SCARECROW. It’s not a strike force; just a handful of Marines and civilians. It’s not equipped to attack a fortified island held by a vicious army. But Scarecrow will lead the team in anyway, because someone has to.

THE ULTIMATE HERO IS BACK, FACING THE ULTIMATE ARMY OF VILLAINS
