Tempest of Fire is the second book in the Michael Neill Adventure Series.
Somalia has split in two, with armed insurgents threatening American lives. China has emerged as a leading arms exporter, supplying weapons to Third World nations. But before National Security Advisor Willis Avery can deal with either danger, he faces a new challenge

On her maiden voyage, Beijing’s newest and most advanced nuclear submarine is destroyed by a weapon of unimaginable power. While the loss of the sub is kept secret, America and her allies want to know what happened. Avery believes a renegade faction of China’s Navy is behind the attack, striking from a secret naval facility in the South China Sea, and assembles a group to investigate.

Leading the mission is Marine Corps Lieutenant Michael Neill. Fresh from his assignment in the Ukraine, Neill and his team, with a little help from British Intelligence and the Royal Navy, must find a way to locate the weapon before it is deployed again. Along the way, they must stop a Chinese Admiral who plans on seizing control of an independent Taiwan. Neill’s squad is aided by a mysterious informant, but is he baiting them into a trap?

Author Bio: Steve Wilson is a multimedia designer for a large metropolitan newspaper, and has worked in advertising for over 25 years. He is a prior service Marine, now serving as a Master Sergeant in the Air Force Reserve.

Over the course of his military career, he has received the Iraq and Afghanistan Campaign Medals, the Global War on Terrorism Expeditionary Medal, and the Air Force Commendation Medal. In 2010 he was named the Air Transportation NCO of the Year. His ties to the armed forces—as well as short-term mission trips—have taken him to Kuwait, Iraq, Afghanistan, Europe and the Pacific, as well as the former Soviet Union. These experiences have helped to shape his story lines.

Steve is the author of ‘Red Sky at Morning’ and ‘Tempest of Fire’, both military/espionage novels in the Michael Neill Adventure series. He is the father of two grown sons, and lives in Florida with his wife.

“Tempest of Fire” by Steve Wilson is a five star book!  This is the Second novel in the “Michael Neill Adventure Series”. The first book “Red Sky At Morning” was  also a five star novel.

This novel was good just not as good as the first one because this one I found to be more detailed than the mystery aspect like in “Red Sky At Morning”.  This novel was about submarines instead of airplanes. The same main characters that are in “Red Sky At Morning” are in this book along with new characters. 

There is a mystery surrounding the deserted Japanese Islands of Huo Shan and a weapon called Tempest Of Fire which is dangerous because once it is launched it cannot be controlled. 

Michael Neill and three other marines are sent to discover what they can use to stop the person responsible for this. They know who the enemy is but they need proof. 

While on Huo Shan they find things that prove that the "islands aren’t as deserted" as they thought and it is at that point that things ‘heat up” for the Marines. 

They also met a friend who has been sending emails to their boss to help them. And this friend is a Christian like Michael Neill.

Even through this book has a lot of details, it isn’t boring and you can really understand what you are reading even if you aren’t interested in submarines and ships and etc. I really like the fact that even though these books are about war and evil. you don’t read any bad language in these pages!

There is a third book coming and I hope I am able to get a copy to review as I am sure it will be just as great as the first two books has been.
