Description

From New York Times best-selling author Jonathan Maberry (creator of the Netflix series V Wars) comes the first in a brand-new series featuring Joe Ledger and Rogue Team International.  

A small island off the coast of Korea is torn apart by a bioweapon that drives everyone - men, women, and children - insane with murderous rage. The people behind the attack want Korea reunified or destroyed. No middle ground. No mercy. Soon Japan, China, and the United States are pushed to the brink of war, while terrorists threaten to release the rage bioweapon in a way of pure destructive slaughter. Joe Ledger leads his newly formed band of international troubleshooters in their first mission to stop the terror cell, fighting alongside agents from North and South Korea. With the lives of billions at stake, Ledger is willing to bring his own brand of terror to this frightening new war.

How can this tripe garnish any decent reviews?

I was reading some reviews and I thought, oh looks interesting, I'll give it a try. For the love of God, why did I waste money on it? Has literacy collapsed to the point that this garbage could get even two stars? Its the silliest, overwritten novel I have listened to in years. It wasn't just bad with purple prose, it was tiresome with silly, unbelievable plots and absurd action. Like North Korea is going to co-operate with the US or there is going to be a nuclear non-proliferation meeting with the US, China ....and Pakistan etc. Come on. We can barely knock off scum like Soleimani without everyone clutching their pearls. And yeah, lets go to a conference after knowing the culprits have an airborne virus that can kill. Forgot to check the air ventilation system? Sorry. Meanwhile that turd Kim Jong-un is going to be protected with armed security in the same room with 8 other "world leaders"? The little porkie would be dead from his asthma if even 1/2 the action happened. I don't think there is one thing in this lousy novel that was believable. It was just absurd and I'm mad at myself for finishing it.

best book I've read

this one takes its, Ray Porter is an amazing narrator and absolutely crushes it in this book, if you like Tom Clancy or other action novels this one will fit nicely into your collection.

I love Joe Ledger!

Ray Porter IS joe Ledger, and a more expressive character with a wry, self-deprecating and completely cynical sense of humour, revealing hidden motivations and intentions by being a real-time hero cop in the very first story.
I feel as if I've come along on an evolving adventure of Protecting The World. Love the science/toys lol
I highly recommend starting at the beginning...this is my kinda soap opera 🤣

Here we go again...

DAMMIT MABERRY!! Books with this much action shouldn't make me bawl like a child but at this point I'm so invested in the characters I can't help it.

Yet again Maberry and Porter kidnap me onto the feels train only to promptly eject me into the desolate land in-between books; battered, bruised, and clamoring for more.

My only negative is that I jumped on picking this up too soon and now have to wait another year or more for the next installment.

THANKS FOR RIPPING MY HEART OUT, I LOVE YOU, I AM AVAILABLE TO PRE-SCREEN THE NEXT ONE... please...

Good, but Starting to feel Rote

The book starts out like your typical Joe Ledger book… thankfully, with lots of action and attitude. The book continues in the same fashion, though I'd say there was less action than other books.

Some parts of the book seem to have been added as afterthoughts. These seem to be centered on subtle political issues, as if the editor or author wanted the book to reflect more events of the current day. Even though some reviewers of the book claim there are politics in this book, I didn't detect anything overt. Those added parts definitely seemed to be "current relevant," but not specifically to one side or the other and more like observations than passing judgement on anyone or anything. Which was nice, because nothing ruins a book faster than having the author's politics suddenly rear its ugly head where it doesn't belong.

Authors often get caught into writing traps, where the same theme gets repeated over and over, or where every character uses the same catch phrases. For this book, it seemed to be the encyclopedic amount of emotions and meanings expressed or compressed in people's eyes. Instead of simply saying, "I could see he was in pain," the author chose to describe how much "eye conveyance" for almost every glance from the protagonists. It grew tiresome after a while. Thankfully, this didn't detract from the enjoyment of the book.

Some parts of the book seemed cliched or contrived - including recycled villains - while other parts were very surprising. I won't give away spoilers, but some events caught me by surprise, more because the author actually "went there." Other parts of the book conveniently had Joe making the mistakes he shouldn't be making, which clearly was done in order to advance the plot. A little of this can be forgiven, but there seemed to be too much in this book. Hopefully this isn't a foreshadow of future books.

The narrator, Ray Porter, did another fantastic job, as always. I don't think the Joe Ledger audio books would be as enjoyable if it wasn't for the narrator being so amazingly good. He literally breathes life into the characters and scenes.

A Different Type of Ledger Novel: I love it!

Kudos on Mayberry starting off this new series and differentiating it from the previous books. this feels different in its writing style and execution. The situations are more adult oriented but just as cemented in the real world. More importantly this is book feels like the beginning of a trilogy or series. There are great, diverse, new characters and exploration into other parts of the ledger family. This book really pushes the idea of being a humanist and getting out of the manipualation and taught hate that politics pushes on people. Don't believe the naysayers in the reviews, this book, nor any other, has pushed an agenda, what you do see is a man who wants to see humanity survive. If someone doesn't get that about ledger they aren't a true ledger fan.

More importantly, there is evidence that this timeline does not coincide with the zombie ledger timeline, and that makes me super happy. I like the idea of not knowing whats going to happen.

New Series, Old Friends

New York Times Best-Selling author Jonathan Maberry brings us the first book in a new series featuring Joe Ledger and the Rogue Team International special ops team.

Filled with adrenaline from the first minute to its last, RAGE is fast, furious, action driven and unputdownable. The rules have changed, the enemy has changed, but all we know and love is at risk from something terrible and only Joe Ledger and the newly formed Rogue Team International squad of top notch black operators can stop it. The will kick down doors, ask no questions, take no names, but they will try to the best of their abbilities to finish the job and save the day.

Award Winning voice over actor and narrator Ray Porter returns once again to this universe and gives life with tallent and passion to Joe Ledger and other secondary characters. He reads, he acts and he makes the story even more real to the listener. He manages to deliver the perfect performance and at the same time achieves the highest level of immersion possible.

I think that he enjoys very much recording these action filled thrillers and that can be glimpsed from the way he handles the characters, the story and the entire world.

Finally!

I have been waiting for this novel for a year. Code Zero will always be my favorite but this is now number 2! So so heartbreaking and action packed. Great job Jonathan!

Jonathan & Ray are awesome

Another great one in the series. Can’t say enough good about Ray Porter. He IS Joe Ledger.
This book didn’t have as much of the “funny” interactions with the team, but was still enjoyable. Ghost the dog played a minor role so I missed him.
The ending is completely shocking, didn’t see that coming! So it leaves a huge gap of time to wait for the next in the series. I suspect that the next may be much “darker” , given what Joe is facing...

Havoc! Havoc!

The DMS is gone but the need for Joe, the Deacon and of course his 'friends in the industry' continues. So much happens in this book - it will hit you hard. No spoilers here but even with all the suspense, I was teary eyed in several places.

Woke warrior joe ledger

I absolutely love the first few joe ledger books for being fun and exciting adventures. The story and detailed fights were great but the last few books get politically preachy. I don’t disagree with the stances taken but i like to escape reality through books like this not get slammed with “woke warrior” joe ledger’s views on every little thing wrong with society. What!? You mean to tell me racism and sexism is wrong?! Politicians are corrupt?!
The last book was bad. I couldn’t finish this one...

Losing the edge

This book goes wrong in so many ways. A kindler and gentler Joe Ledger who detests violence... but is even more violent than before in do what's necessary for the greater good. It rambles on for 17 hours and mostly just polarizes Joe even more and sets us up for a sequel. Maberry needs to get back to writing action and thriller without trying trying to out-do previous books and justify Joe's behavior. A new villain might also help instead of recycling the old... Not done with the series yet, but disappointed by this installment.

Run, do not walk, and buy this book

Just finished Rage, by Jonathan Maberry

This book is likely one of the best, most heart wrenching, action filled books in the Joe Ledger series yet.

Ray Porter who narrates these books is Joe Ledger, is Top and Bunny, is Junie and Church. Ray is the voice of the darkness in these stories too; as double edged as that word is as it pertains to this series.

Ray these books have to be harder and harder to read, but damn if you don’t deserve an award or ten for your performance with them. You can put so much emotion into the reading that you give such soul to the written words, to a degree that they could never have achieved on their own. That statement is meaningful, because the words of Maberry are soulful and masterly sculpted. When I hear you voice the words, I can even see them plainly printed on the paper and know that if I were to have read these books instead of listened, that I would have tragically missed the depth you impart to them.

Jonathan, this book had me cringing, cheering, tearing up and in shock. Without spoiling the latest in the Ledger series for others, let’s say I kept thinking about the directions you’d take the team down, trying to deduce your endgame; and I had a hope for a type of ending. I now feel guilt, over the occurrences that took place in a fictional book, simply because I wanted one thing to happen. That one thing did happen, but not without consequences. I am terrified to have Ray turn over the page that I cannot see, as he reads your tales to us all, but damn if I’m not rabid for more.

Thank you both.

To potential readers, run, do not walk, to your phone or keyboard and buy this book.
