    1. Wow! If someone had told me that the US could be successfully invaded, I would have laughed but this book shows a realistic scenario that was quite sobering. Although it is set in the future, the premise is timely since some of the problems presented were caused by the government sequestration. The details in the book are especially appealing to people with a military background. I am looking forward to reading the next installment!


    2. I have never been all that interested in military literature. However, I found Red Tide quite enjoyable. Mr. Kennedy makes it sound quite plausible that, given the proper planning, a foreign power could sweep in and occupy an American metropolitan area, thereby crippling the rest of the country (at least for a period of time). The big questions are how will the U.S. respond and can the threat be erradicated? I recommend Red Tide not only to fans of military literature, but also to devotees of th [...]


    3. In a style reminiscent of Clancy's Red Storm Rising the book tells the story of a Chinese plan to invade Taiwan and hold the US at bay by seizing Seattle, Washington. Set in the near future parts could be lifted from today's headlines.The story is well plotted and laid out. In the beginning you are introduced to many seemingly unrelated characters and keeping the details straight is a little tricky. Once the plots converge you are grateful for the background details.There is a second book in the [...]


    4. Heyhey guyswhat if the PRC invaded Seattle because TaiwanI could totally drop some military knowledgeTLA it upno there's room guys because BECAUSE(I didn't develop any of the PLA characters)guys


    5. Edge of my seat!This book will leave you on the edge of your seat. It is a unique and thoughtful work on a possible military scenario that could happen. The book is well written and the author seems to know a lot about his subject.


    6. First, let me say that none of what I’ll say in this section couldn’t be found on the back copy of the novel. I wanted to provide a spoiler free review, so here goes nothing! This novel is a very Red Dawn-esq story of what it might look like if America was invaded. In Chris Kennedy’s twisted imagination, China uses an attack on America to hide their campaign to reclaim Taiwan. It works, and an unprepared America quickly loses the Pacific Northwest. But despite how bloody things get, they c [...]


    7. This is a totally gripping story that makes me wonder if our military leaders have read it. The invasion is made to look so easy and the U.S. seems so complacent that it makes you wonder just when it will happen in real life. Not a good feeling at all.It's obvious that Chris Kennedy's military background came in handy in the writing of this book. I'm no expert but have read so many military-fiction novels that even I can tell when an author has no clue about the various ranks and titles, weapons [...]


    8. This is part one of two. It was a fun read, but I'll write more after reading part two.The basic story is that the Chinese take control of Seattle as a bargaining chip to play after they take over Taiwan, to keep the US out of the battle, and to force us to allow them to keep Taiwan in return for getting Seattle back.



    9. Quick read. Lots of military jargon and not much character development but very engrossing. Looking forward to the sequel.


    10. This is a tough one for me because I really wanted to like this book. The story concept is great. The plot is workable, logical, and reasonable—outlandish to be sure, but possible. The author clearly has military experience so he knows what he's talking about. The problem is in the execution.What attracted me to the novel was the mention of Taiwan as it relates to China. Taiwan is a country I know and love. China has coveted the island since 1949 (ignoring the fact that the native Taiwanese we [...]


    11. An engaging story, focusing at first upon the planning and logistics for an invasion of Seattle, and then upon its execution. Well written, with just enough exposition to prevent “Deus ex Machina” moments but just vague enough about overall details to allow the reader to think “what would I do in this situation and what do I think would happen next” until those details are revealed, and the reader is rewarded with figuring out how close their thinking was to the author’s. I have not be [...]


    12. The premise of the US invaded is interesting. The author spends a large portion of the book setting up the scenario on how the invasion happens. In my opinion (and the reason I give this a 2 rather then 3 or 4 star rating), the details reach a point of distraction in many of the sections. Do we really need a paragraph detailing every single after market modification for every rifle, pistol, and tank that is introduced? Do we need ranges, stats, payloads for each missile? Its cool knowing the aut [...]


    13. I needed a reset read. I knew it would be terrible, but c'mon, the premise is kind of irresistible, so hopefully the good kind of terrible. I suppose I'd never really considered what military fiction might comprise, so yeah, now I have some idea. And it might be just fine from that perspective, but I absolutely can't get past dialog that is nothing but explanation to the reader. Or why a book filled with weaponry minutia would need an introductory explanation of military time. Sure, part of me s [...]


    14. it was okay, but to me it focuses too much on the Chinese as I don't think the US citizens would lay down so easy


    15. this is a great prequel. very informative, building strong characters. I listened to it on audible and found it satisfying. I read the theogony first and am enjoying the origins of those characters.
