    Not Your Average Action Novel

    I don't often read this type of novel, but I have read a few from the Titans in this genre such as Vince Flynn and Brad Thor. And Anvil of the Craftsman is on par with their works. I particularly liked how we experience the story through the eyes of Jon Anthony. In addition I enjoyed how the author infused the story with philosophical and spiritual elements. It added another layer to the tale and made it that more deeply satisfying of a story.

    A heart pounding ride… This book grabs you by the seat of the pants and won't let you go as it drags you by through the IED-laden provinces of Iraq along with the hero/protagonist Jon Anthony and his spooky Special Forces protector, Matt Kameldorn. Along the way we are given fascinating glimpses into the minds and motivations of not only the Al Qaida operatives, but also some of the ordinary people and tribal leaders who eventually rally against the foreign terrorists in their midst. I will definitely be continuing on with this series, but first, I think I'll go write me some serious Kameldorn fanfiction :-)

    Exciting, well-researched political thriller

    4.5 stars. I don't normally read political thrillers, but I'd heard so many great things about this one, that I had to pick it up, and I'm so glad I did. Though the first quarter was a little slow at times, I was soon absorbed in an engrossing story about what it takes to win a war and rebuild a nation--in this case, Iraq. One of the things I really liked about this book is that you don't just get the point of view of the good guys; you get many perspectives, and by the end, I felt that I had a much better understanding of the Iraq conflict and the various peoples involved in it. I had been a little concerned that the book would be preachy, but the spiritual aspects were integrated well and presented in such a manner that I believe anyone of any religious faith could appreciate them. Extremely well-researched, with taut, thrilling action scenes (I was ready to high-five the characters at the end) and well-rounded characters, Anvil of the Craftsman is a winner. I've already purchased the sequel and look forward to more from Dale Amidei. This book would make a great movie!

    Meaty thriller

    This book is a thriller with deeply developed characters and much more; it carries a message. The book goes beyond entertaining the reader with the action and characters; it speaks weightily. Do religions share a commonality - or, rather, can people of different faiths find commonality with each other? What makes an effort during a time of war worth the cost? How much cost is too much? For a reader who lately has been drawn to lighter reads, this meaty book kept my mind engaged and my fingers turning the pages until the very end.
