For readers and viewers of The Perfect Storm, opening this long-awaited new work by Sebastian Junger will be like stepping off the deck of the Andrea Gail and into the inferno of a fire burning out of control in the steep canyons of Idaho. Here is the same meticulous prose brought to bear on the inner workings of a terrifying elemental force; here is a cast of characters risking everything in an effort to bring that force under control.

Few writers have been to so many desperate corners of the globe as has Sebastian Junger; fewer still have provided such starkly memorable evocations of characters and events. From the murderous mechanics of the diamond trade in Sierra Leone to the logic of guerrilla warfare in Afghanistan and the forensics of genocide in Kosovo, this new collection of Junger’s nonfiction will take you places you wouldn’t dream of going to on your own.

    " pretty good for an easy read, i found the main heroine to be a bit overly sensitive to my taste. the theme of free love and not settling down to a "woman's life" so often found in y.a./fantasy books was refreshing. "

    " This was my least favorite out of the series "

    " I love the idea of the world Cashire has created, but every time I read her books I feel like she is using them to forward her very liberal sexual agenda. Nowhere is there a strong, equal, monogamous relationship. While sex is handled discreetly, characters are going off with whoever strikes their fancy and getting pregnant with partners who aren't interested in long term relationships. The "strong" female characters are immature, impulsive, and often reckless. The overall message feels like "Watch out for number one at all times and enjoy the passing fancy of whoever captures your attention at this particular moment." "
