Was he ever wrong.Kidnapped by the brutal Dark Fiber militia, Matt is shocked to discover he’s been betrayed by those he trusted most. Stranded in an isolated location in the middle of Michigan, far away from the girl he fought so hard to regain, Matt is made March22’s point man in a plot to get control over a cache of thousands of stolen ground-to-air missiles. As time runs out, he’s their last—and best—hope of sparing the country of a heinous attack on commercial aviation that could quickly turn the United States into a permanent war zone. In this action-packed, explosive follow-up to "Saving Raine," the first book in Frederick Lee Brooke’s "The Drone Wars," Matt Carney finds himself at the center of a firestorm of stolen missiles, stolen drones, and stolen dirty nukes, tormented by stinging betrayals, clinging to a last hope for love. Sure, he was able to save Raine—but as the inferno rages around him, can he find a way to save the country from further violent chaos…and a way to save himself?...

    Timeline 2019, 11-12/2021: SF Bay, CA, Missoula, MO, Washington DC, New Ann Arbor MI, Bozeman, MO, IL, NV, IA. News flash: the Golden Gate Bridge had been blown to pieces. 200 soldiers had lost their lives crossing over to Marin County. President James Jeffers & the Secretary of Defense Reese were meeting. 5 yrs. ago President David Burns & the other 5 in-line for succession of the presidency had been assassinated.Deputy Chief Dave Knopfler, Chief of Staff Tom Underwood & NSA Chief Hal Holsom had all been briefed. The Vice President Bianca Orlando was left out. Homeland Security needed to find the bombs.A cover-up began. More terrorist bombings, PPL getting killed, stolen military drones & the 1st Lady Amanda Jeffers was kidnapped. FBI Agent Gordon Knight was looking into the 1st Lady Amanda Jeffers kidnapping.President James Jeffers called another meeting. Those in attendance were: Secretary of Defense Reese, NSA Chief Hal Holsom, Deputy Chief Dave Knopfler (Homeland Security), Chief of Staff Tom Underwood, Mark Sullivan (Federal Aviation Administration), & Press Secretary Petra Bedrosian. Matt Carney (19, twin, son) had been also been kidnapped. Raine (19, Matt’s G/F) was very concerned & worried. Is the March22 terrorist organization (former Anonymous) causing all this mayhem? Or is it the Dark Fiber Militia operation?Could it be the Black Widow militia group? What was Claire Tenneman (leader, Dark Fiber Militia operation) real mission? Would Matt Carney (twin) be found safe/sound? HS & the FBI are looking for Kyle Cedric Pluess. Why?Will someone figure out who the terrorists are & bring them to justice? The Constitution (Bill of Rights) sort of rewritten, I like that. I used to live in Missoula MT, my son’s new owner/boss lives there. Beautiful scenic city.Bill Clinton eat your heart out. & this week the Supreme Court passed the legalization of gay & lesbian marriage. I did not receive any type of compensation for reading & reviewing this book. While I receive free books from publishers & authors, I am under no obligation to write a positive review. Only an honest one. A very awesome book cover, great font & writing style. A very well written political Covert operation book. It was very easy for me to read/follow from start/finish & never a dull moment. There were no grammar/typo errors, nor any repetitive or out of line sequence sentences. Lots of exciting scenarios, with several twists/turns & a huge set of unique/colorful characters to keep track of. This could also make another great political Covert operation movie, or mini TV series. Wow, action-packed, suspenseful, adventurous & mysterious. 1 book I couldn’t put down. No doubt in my mind a very easy rating of 5 stars. Thank you for the free Goodreads; Author; PDF book Tony Parsons MSW (Washburn)

    Inferno is the second book in The Drone Wars series....Have to say this one is much more in depth with lots of political and military talk. So if your not huge on Sci-Fi/Dystopian with lots of heavy political and military you may want to find something else. I enjoyed this one. It continues from Saving Raine.Lots of characters are introduced and while it may be confusing to a YA it was smooth reading for me. I'm still not the biggest fan of Raine yet lol. I can't help it. There were other characters I was more drawn to than her. Maybe she's just not the character for me lol.March 22 may be considered terrorist but I'm sure enjoying there story and can't wait to see it unfold. Have a feeling the next book will just go "BOOM" with the way this one ended.I'm quite impressed with the political background and military being explained in this novel. Gives you a great understanding of how corrupted it all is and goes one in one together.

    Inferno is the second installment of the Drone Wars series by Frederick Lee Brooke and as with the first novel of the series, the action doesn't slow down. Now that Matt Carney has reunited with his father, the reunion is short lived as Matt is kidnapped by Dark Fiber, one of the most powerful militias in the country. Fighting his way out of this situation, he is met with decisions that could mean life and death for not only himself, but for everyone in March22 and beyond. This book is just as action-packed as the first installment. I enjoyed following Matt's adventures trying to get out of the hands of Dark Fiber, meeting Claire and making it back to March22. What I am still a little confused about is Raine. Will she become more of a factor in the next book in the series, or will she stay simply Matt's sweetheart? We shall see.

    *I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review*This was a good follow up to the first book "Saving Raine" I enjoyed the direction things are going. one thing I will say is that this one was a lot more political and not as action packed and that is not a bad thing cause it was very interesting just in a different way although it did take me a bit longer to read this one because a couple of times I got a tiny bit bored with the recap and political drama. I love the intertwining of characters and their stories and with all the craziness that went down I am very excited to see what happens in the third book and how it will all be wrapped up I have some thoughts and some hopes but we will have to wait and see.

    Inferno by Frederick Lee Brooke is a terrific addition to what promises to be a terrific series. The characters and story lines in this book are absolutely gripping. Brooke is a master at technique and humor. I love the amusing ways he brings all the tech stuff to my level of understanding. There is so much going on here that it is very difficult to put this book down. Be prepared to be blown away. *I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.*

    I have enjoyed reading the second book in this series. I was shocked to learn that John tried to kill Matt! I can't wait to read what happens next. Will Matt be able to talk John down. Will Matt and Raine ever get some peace? Can they save The United States????

    "Inferno" the action-packed explosive sequel in the "Drone Wars" begins when a March22 convoy is ambushed by the Dark Fiber militia and Matt Carney's kidnapped. Flown to a safe house in Michigan his life is still in jeopardy when the Black Widow militia attacks and Matt barely escapes the blast with his captor Claire Tenneman. With high expectations of being rescued by March22, Matt is ordered by his brother Luke to remain with Claire and to quiz her not only about Dark Fiber but specifically about the thousands of stolen ground-to-air missiles they have hidden. Tormented by his separation from Raine he reluctantly agrees and goes on the run with Claire who expects that the leadership of the militia is planning a brutal attack against the commercial planes slated to fly again after being grounded for two years.The plot vibrates with high-octane energy as multiple threads follow Matt's kidnapping; Wyoming Ryder's interrogation by Homeland Security and the FBI; the First Lady's rescue; and President Jeffers and the government's ongoing corruption and cover-up. Even March22's plans are expanded in this plot as they come out of the shadows, taking their place in a political arena that's filled with underhanded manipulation, deceit and backstabbing. Yet even with a goal of returning the U.S. to the free and just nation it once was, one within their leadership has turned rogue and his betrayal can only add more contention to the volatile landscape.In a story that's gritty and harshly bleak with all the death, destruction, and deprivation the nation is facing, a glint of hope lies in the reactivation of the commercial airways, and Matt's struggle to locate and steal the ground-to-air missiles that could be used to kill thousands of travellers. Well-written and intoxicating the plot twists and turns, the action never stopping until the shocking ending that begs for another book. Although I found the love between Raine and Matt a little unrealistic in its intensity, a new romance begins brewing that I found surprising but interesting and can't wait to see where it leads.Matt Carney matures in this book as he not only has to deal with a painful betrayal and being separated from Raine while on the run from the brutality of the Dark Fiber militia. A skilled marksman with a gun and his slingshot he proves how tough, brave and sharp he is under fire, although he continually puts himself down for not being smart in school. Matt's trust and respect for his twin brother Luke continues to grow as the brilliant but cocky computer geek disabled by Lou Gehrig's disease stays linked with Matt through all his struggles, continually saving his mission and his life. Claire Tenneman a local leader in Black Fiber is intelligent, feisty and a bold leader who changes her allegiance after acknowledging the underlying evil in the militia's strategy. All these personalities including the cold, heartless, vindictiveness of antagonists like Thomas Paine and Cedric Pluess heighten the power and drama of a storyline that ripples with tension and suspense. I thoroughly enjoyed "Inferno" as Matt Carney finds himself at the center of a firestorm of stolen missiles, drones, and dirty nukes only to have a betrayal rock the constancy and stability of his world. I rate it highly and look forward to reading the third novel in this series.

    Received Inferno, the second book in the Drone War series, from the publisher in exchanged for an honest review. Although I am not YA, I do work in a high school and read books that I can recommend to struggling readers or students that do not like to read. Mr. Brooke has written another book with lots of action that will keep middle to high school students engaged and wanting to find out what happens next. Matt’s father has gone rogue and has allowed Matt to be kidnapped by a militia group. The events that happen after will leave you wondering how a father can do that to his own son for his benefit. John Carney goes against March22 and is voted down. You are reeled into meetings with the President, Congress, Homeland Security, and many others. Read the book to find out how Matt deals with many situations in attempt to get the United States back to peace. I know I am looking forward to the third book in the series.

    The dialog was pretty awful, and the characters are... unbelievable to be honest. They also don't ever change. The members of March22 are card-board cut out characters unfortunately. :( I wanted to like this book, but I only got about 2/3 of the way through it. I read the first book in this series and was intrigued enough by the world and the story that I gave the second book a chance hoping the author would grow with the series. That was not the case. Nor did the characters. So, I deleted it. I honestly cannot understand the 5 star reviews... this book was amateurish, at best.

    I very much liked this book. I had trouble finishing it because I was busy doing other things and the short chapters allow you to break away from the story more often. Matt and his brother are very interesting to follow. I'm a senior citizen and the story was written for young adults. They should really enjoy reading it. I had bought a copy and received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.

    Excellent follow-up to Saving Raine, with further development of the main character and examination of the direction the US may be headed. Well done.Professionally written and published. This is another example of independent authors proving that commercial publishers hold no monopoly on quality books.

    This is book 2 of the Drone Wars. You need to read Saving Raine first. I liked the first book, but I thought this one was a little better. Matt is now a part of March22 and is on a mission for them. This is fast-paced with plenty of politics, action, and betrayal.
