Book Review Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Dragonfire by James Swallow

My reviews are always 100% honest and my own opinions. I will try to never fully spoil a plot. This particular copy I was given access to a copy to review via netgalley. #NetGalley #AconyteBooks #SplinterCellDragonfire #JamesSwallow #TomClancysSplinterCell #TieInFiction

Dragonfire is a action-packed edge of your seat thriller that sees Sam Fisher’s toughest mission yet. Fourth Echelon agent Sam Fisher finds himself trapped inside North Korea on the run when a secret mission goes fatally wrong. Now Sam is hunted by his adversaries but worse than that betrayed by his allies and disavowed by his own agency. The only chance of survival is to uncover the murderous plot that reaches into the heart of the hermit state. But all is not lost while Sam struggles his estranged daughter Sarah risk everything to assemble an off the books effort to find her missing father before his luck runs out but it doesn’t take long to realise that the conspiracy that framed Sam goes deeper than either of them could have ever imagined.

The second Splinter Cell book by James Swallow and Aconyte is arguably better than the first. We are dropped literally into the action and it does not let up from the get go. Part thriller, part mystery this book will keep you on the edge of your seat and sprinkle in a few easter eggs to previous games and books along the way. That said I would argue you don’t even have to be a Splinter Cell fan to enjoy this thriller. Of course you may miss the easter eggs but this is a perfect military action thriller that will be sure to tick a lot of boxes.

If you are a fan of the games you will not be disappointed in the slightest since this reads just like the games – that is to say it is full of action from the start. A definite must read for thriller fans or Splinter Cell fans.
