Dreamland is a cutting-edge weapons research facility in the Nevada desert - home to some of the world's finest pilots and an elite combat unit that operates directly at the command of the US President.
Dreamland is rocked by the news that someone in the South China Sea has developed an unmanned spy plane as advanced - and dangerous - as their own top-secret Flighthawk. Has there been a breach of security? With a high-level summit between Taiwan and mainland China looming and such a potentially devastating weapon on the loose, the threat to the region's fragile stability is immense. While the hunt for a mole threatens all their achievements, the Dreamland team must embark on the race of their lives: to seek out their mysterious rival - and destroy it.
Having read this book in two days, almost to the minute, it was a great book, with few negative points.
The most negative point I have at the moment is that the books seem to be following the same path, for example the first three (Dreamland, Nerve Centre, Strike Zone) were all unique, had their own story line, now it's becoming a bit monotonous. The books are becoming more alike with every new member to the series. Basically the same dude, flying the same souped up B-52 saving the world. It is starting to get boring.
On the up note, I still loved it, I got hooked in from the begining and could barely put it down. Another smoooth 8.
The realism was on par with the usual Dale Brown level, way into the future, but that's not too bad, im starting to get used to it.
Rereadability: Yep I could read it again, along with the rest of the series, though I might have to wait till after my exams at the end of the year before reading it again. I do want to pass.
I lost track of time in this novel, especially after picking it up at about 11pm and 250 pages later, at about 2:30am I decided it was time to sleep. So this book hooked me in, probably more than the other ones.
Overall a great read, as long as you read the rest of the series first, otherwise you'll end up dazed and confused.
