In the very near future, China, now the world’s largest industrial producer and consumer of Mideast Oil, passes a law that all new cars manufactured in that nation will be operated on natural gas. Beneath the floor of the South China Sea, around the contested Spratly Islands, billions of gallons of natural gas wait to be mined. But at the center of the Spratlys, the remote but strategic island of Itu Aba is occupied by China’s historic enemy, Taiwan.

When the new, power-hungry Chinese President, Tang Qhichen, orders Chinese Naval forces to attack Taiwanese forces on Itu Aba, U.S. President Douglas Surber responds, ordering the U.S. Seventh Fleet to try and quell a burgeoning naval showdown between the two Chinas.

Aboard the submarine tender U.S.S. Emory S. Land, one of the first ships in the naval war zone, is Ensign Stephanie Surber, a recent Naval Academy graduate who is also the First Daughter of the United States. As the Emory S. Land steams into harm’s way, Ensign Surber’s life is gravely threatened. The President must make a decision. Will he take a stand against evil? Or will he save the life of his daughter?


In Fire of the Raging Dragon---the second book in bestselling author Don Brown’s Pacific Rim Series---Stephanie Surber is stationed on board a submarine tender in the South China Sea when a naval war breaks out.

Plot is extremely compelling. But way too much fundamentalist Christianity..

This book starts out as an engaging, readable military adventure. Soon, however it is sprinkled with born-again attitudes and references. Suddenly it's not as readable as it seemed. And then, it loses all credibility when a ship's cargo is so horrible as to cause a Taiwanese sailor to barf uncontrollably, in spite of it being sealed in a glass bottle and refrigerated. After letting the reader wonder what it might be, it is finally (after causing more retching, found to be thousands of aborted fetuses destined to be "sold on the open market." Talk about tiny-minded agendas. Here we are at a point where science and rationality are finally being honored in politics and social networking, and the die-hard evangelists are insinuating their dogma into books (and often at the library) videos. There is christian literature and christian DVDs masquerading as literature. Clearly some buyer at the Library is a small-minded evangelist who should be relegated to sharpening pencils. This is unreadable trash.
