Summary

The world's most elite counter-terrorist operators....
A cyber-security guru suddenly getting shot at and blown up rather more than usual....
And nuclear-armed terrorists rolling with impunity through a lawless and brutal virtual world....
The year is now. Islamist terrorists hack into America's most sensitive defense networks, launch chemical weapons attacks on Western cities, and stage a raid on vulnerable nuclear weapons storage facilities in Pakistan. They are using a massively multiplayer online video game (or "virtual world") as a platform for planning and rehearsing their attacks - forcing a squad of supremely elite Delta Force operators (reinforced by an info-security expert from the Department of Homeland Security) to go inside the game to fight them.
But the fight only begins there. Get ready for breath-stealing action in every known battle space - clockwork urban safehouse takedowns, combat helicopter assaults, brutal ambushes in the trackless mountains, waterborne SEAL team ops, precision close-quarters battle sequences, and CheyTac Intervention sniper rifle systems that can kill you from a mile and a half away.
These weapons, tactics, tech, and 21st-century warriors will be unlike anything you've ever heard of before.

Wowzer!!!

Where does D-Boys rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is one of the best audio books I have listened to so far.
I thoroughly enjoyed it, the pace was great and the story unfolded beautifully.
It was really well read, the characters were distinguishable form on another.

What was one of the most memorable moments of D-Boys?

I loved the first time the links between the terrorists and the game begin to come to light.
The battle scenes were epic!!

What about Kevin Arthur Harper’s performance did you like?

I enjoyed his smooth reading, how you could tell during dialogue sequences who was talking, and his accent :)

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I was gripped throughout, the plot draws you in and gives you an emotional connection with the characters.

Any additional comments?

Well worth a listen.
Particularly good when you're out running.

Teenage gamers wet dream

I really wanted to like this book.
I have listen to and thoroughly enjoyed the full Arisen series.
The problem with this book is that it's just too unbelievable. There are so many holes and inconsistencies in the story. I can understand that the intense detail and description around the gameplay might appeal to those who are addicted to 1st person shooters but for someone who doesn't play these games it becomes rather tedious.
I also found the story pretty basic and the plot without substance. That was way too much padding in the form of an interesting detail.
What made it worse was that the narration made half of the characters sound like 12-year-old boys. This added of the lack of one of believability.
If SMF writes another Arisen book then I will definitely buy it but I won't be wasting my time on another of these.

Wow! What a ride!

Where does D-Boys rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This was my first audiobook, so I didn't quite know what to expect. I'd listened to a few audio dramas, but never an audiobook. Once I got the feel of the experience, I was good. It was fast-paced, with a story line that kept you wanting more.

What was one of the most memorable moments of D-Boys?

The story was very interesting. At first blush it seemed "out-there", but after further reflection seemed plausible, if not a situation being faced now, behind the scenes.

What about Kevin Arthur Harper’s performance did you like?

Kevin did a good job or personalizing each character, while maintaining the ambiance of the book.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

The story was fast-paced enough that had I the time, I would have listened to the book in one sitting. That said, I had it finished in three sittings. I never had to force myself to finish the book.

Any additional comments?

Great book, great listen. :)

Creative well-written plot!

What did you love best about D-Boys?

The concept and plot was like nothing I've ever read before! Fuch's detailed research on how operators act and function.

What other book might you compare D-Boys to and why?

The Arisen series (same author). Also, Reflexive Fire (Deckard Series, Jack Murphy) - captures the spirit of special operations.

What about Kevin Arthur Harper’s performance did you like?

Solid reading with good character transitions.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Actually no...because then it would be over too quickly!

Any additional comments?

Need a D-Boys 3 and a story arch that links it to the Arisen series!
