Description

From New York Times best-selling author Jonathan Maberry (creator of the Netflix series V Wars) comes the first in a brand-new series featuring Joe Ledger and Rogue Team International.  

A small island off the coast of Korea is torn apart by a bioweapon that drives everyone - men, women, and children - insane with murderous rage. The people behind the attack want Korea reunified or destroyed. No middle ground. No mercy. Soon Japan, China, and the United States are pushed to the brink of war, while terrorists threaten to release the rage bioweapon in a way of pure destructive slaughter. Joe Ledger leads his newly formed band of international troubleshooters in their first mission to stop the terror cell, fighting alongside agents from North and South Korea. With the lives of billions at stake, Ledger is willing to bring his own brand of terror to this frightening new war.

Here we go again...

DAMMIT MABERRY!! Books with this much action shouldn't make me bawl like a child but at this point I'm so invested in the characters I can't help it. Yet again Maberry and Porter kidnap me onto the feels train only to promptly eject me into the desolate land in-between books; battered, bruised, and clamoring for more. My only negative is that I jumped on picking this up too soon and now have to wait another year or more for the next installment. THANKS FOR RIPPING MY HEART OUT, I LOVE YOU, I AM AVAILABLE TO PRE-SCREEN THE NEXT ONE... please... #joeledgeraddictsanon

New Series, Old Friends

New York Times Best-Selling author Jonathan Maberry brings us the first book in a new series featuring Joe Ledger and the Rogue Team International special ops team. Filled with adrenaline from the first minute to its last, RAGE is fast, furious, action driven and unputdownable. The rules have changed, the enemy has changed, but all we know and love is at risk from something terrible and only Joe Ledger and the newly formed Rogue Team International squad of top notch black operators can stop it. The will kick down doors, ask no questions, take no names, but they will try to the best of their abbilities to finish the job and save the day. Award Winning voice over actor and narrator Ray Porter returns once again to this universe and gives life with tallent and passion to Joe Ledger and other secondary characters. He reads, he acts and he makes the story even more real to the listener. He manages to deliver the perfect performance and at the same time achieves the highest level of immersion possible. I think that he enjoys very much recording these action filled thrillers and that can be glimpsed from the way he handles the characters, the story and the entire world.

Good, but Starting to feel Rote

The book starts out like your typical Joe Ledger book… thankfully, with lots of action and attitude. The book continues in the same fashion, though I'd say there was less action than other books. Some parts of the book seem to have been added as afterthoughts. These seem to be centered on subtle political issues, as if the editor or author wanted the book to reflect more events of the current day. Even though some reviewers of the book claim there are politics in this book, I didn't detect anything overt. Those added parts definitely seemed to be "current relevant," but not specifically to one side or the other and more like observations than passing judgement on anyone or anything. Which was nice, because nothing ruins a book faster than having the author's politics suddenly rear its ugly head where it doesn't belong. Authors often get caught into writing traps, where the same theme gets repeated over and over, or where every character uses the same catch phrases. For this book, it seemed to be the encyclopedic amount of emotions and meanings expressed or compressed in people's eyes. Instead of simply saying, "I could see he was in pain," the author chose to describe how much "eye conveyance" for almost every glance from the protagonists. It grew tiresome after a while. Thankfully, this didn't detract from the enjoyment of the book. Some parts of the book seemed cliched or contrived - including recycled villains - while other parts were very surprising. I won't give away spoilers, but some events caught me by surprise, more because the author actually "went there." Other parts of the book conveniently had Joe making the mistakes he shouldn't be making, which clearly was done in order to advance the plot. A little of this can be forgiven, but there seemed to be too much in this book. Hopefully this isn't a foreshadow of future books. The narrator, Ray Porter, did another fantastic job, as always. I don't think the Joe Ledger audio books would be as enjoyable if it wasn't for the narrator being so amazingly good. He literally breathes life into the characters and scenes.

A Different Type of Ledger Novel: I love it!

Kudos on Mayberry starting off this new series and differentiating it from the previous books. this feels different in its writing style and execution. The situations are more adult oriented but just as cemented in the real world. More importantly this is book feels like the beginning of a trilogy or series. There are great, diverse, new characters and exploration into other parts of the ledger family. This book really pushes the idea of being a humanist and getting out of the manipualation and taught hate that politics pushes on people. Don't believe the naysayers in the reviews, this book, nor any other, has pushed an agenda, what you do see is a man who wants to see humanity survive. If someone doesn't get that about ledger they aren't a true ledger fan. More importantly, there is evidence that this timeline does not coincide with the zombie ledger timeline, and that makes me super happy. I like the idea of not knowing whats going to happen.

A Story that's like cold pizza

So for years now I have absolutely loved the Joe Ledger series and anything Jonathan writes. The reason for my title is, even day old cold pizza is still good but not the best. I gave a 5 star rating to every book with the exception of this one and Deep Silence. I was really looking forward to the first RTI story. I loved the new setting for the series and the book pretty much followed Joe Ledger protocol. Now one of the reasons I love the series is the familiarity of it. However this one I got bored pretty quick. I wont spoil anything, but not one but two recycled villains? Bringing back old foes is tricky. I can see where Jonathan was trying to go but the series feels stale. Yes there was a ton of violence in this book yet that doesn't make it good. It's kind of like using a ton of Axe body spray instead of taking a shower. Ray's narration was great as always. In closing, this was my least favorite Joe Ledger book. No where near the caliber of the first 6 books. Side note if Trump gets re-elected, I may have to stop listening to anything Maberry writes for the next 4 years. OH, one last thing... FUCK THE ENDING!!

Finally!

I have been waiting for this novel for a year. Code Zero will always be my favorite but this is now number 2! So so heartbreaking and action packed. Great job Jonathan!

Havoc! Havoc!

The DMS is gone but the need for Joe, the Deacon and of course his 'friends in the industry' continues. So much happens in this book - it will hit you hard. No spoilers here but even with all the suspense, I was teary eyed in several places.

Jonathan & Ray are awesome

Another great one in the series. Can’t say enough good about Ray Porter. He IS Joe Ledger. This book didn’t have as much of the “funny” interactions with the team, but was still enjoyable. Ghost the dog played a minor role so I missed him. The ending is completely shocking, didn’t see that coming! So it leaves a huge gap of time to wait for the next in the series. I suspect that the next may be much “darker” , given what Joe is facing...

Losing the edge

This book goes wrong in so many ways. A kindler and gentler Joe Ledger who detests violence... but is even more violent than before in do what's necessary for the greater good. It rambles on for 17 hours and mostly just polarizes Joe even more and sets us up for a sequel. Maberry needs to get back to writing action and thriller without trying trying to out-do previous books and justify Joe's behavior. A new villain might also help instead of recycling the old... Not done with the series yet, but disappointed by this installment.

Woke warrior joe ledger

I absolutely love the first few joe ledger books for being fun and exciting adventures. The story and detailed fights were great but the last few books get politically preachy. I don’t disagree with the stances taken but i like to escape reality through books like this not get slammed with “woke warrior” joe ledger’s views on every little thing wrong with society. What!? You mean to tell me racism and sexism is wrong?! Politicians are corrupt?! The last book was bad. I couldn’t finish this one...
