Falcon Down gets high praise from Kirkus Reviews!
“An Air Force pilot with a few skills not in his official dossier finds himself on the run in a hostile nation in this thriller, the first in a projected series. . . . Cobb has clearly done his research on multiple counts and, like Tom Clancy or Dale Brown, masterly intertwines military technology and behavior into a tightly plotted narrative in which every development follows logically and smoothly from what came before. This deft touch extends to the characters: . . . This first installment chronicling the adventures of Maj. Jacob Kelly turns out to be an undisputed success.” — Kirkus Reviews
Praise from enthusiastic readers:
Received 7/15/20 from a reader in Pennsylvania: I just finished reading Falcon Down, the first novel in your series. Well done! The story hooked me from the get-go and my attention never flagged. C.S. Lewis called Charles Dickens’ Bleak House “a prodigality of invention.” I can never rise to the heights of Lewis’s critical powers, but as a lifelong reader of novels I can say the same thing about your book. Your characters really live, and they are vividly drawn. The dialogue also fits each one’s unique personality as you have crafted it, and the action comes off as credible. You truly do have a gift for narrative.
And I must say, you really did your homework. The technical mastery you displayed throughout the book was nothing short of dazzling. In that respect it reminded me of Tom Clancy’s The Hunt for Red October. Clancy got everything he needed from researching unclassified material.
I have tended to avoid reading “Christian” novels for the same reason I tend to avoid “Christian” films. They are often sentimental and corny. Marilyn and I used to enjoy reading aloud the novels of Francine Rivers and Karen Kingsbury. (I think Rivers the better of the two.) They kept my interest, as well as Marilyn’s, though I haven’t read either author since. The sad thing is that their work is published by an established book house while you have to be content with self-publishing, and though your writing is in a different genre, it’s just as good if not better than much of theirs.
I look forward to reading the other books in your series.
A reader in Greenville: I purchased the kindle edition of Falcon Down and Falcon Rising. Enjoying them very much! I read the Candidate over the winter season. Highly recommend all of them. Such a gifted author!
A reader in Tennessee: Highly recommend this author, and everything he has written. This [Outlander Chronicles] is my favorite series personally.
