Iris Yang presented an intriguing saga with her second installment of the illustrious Flying Tigers. As the scenes unfolded, the main characters became so well-honed, they no longer seemed fictional. Drenched from all the misery and pain, the author paid special tribute to the carnage and countless, shattered hearts that came to endure the worst of atrocities. The cast of supporting characters were well-drawn and added fuel to the fire of this intense drama. The narrative concluded with an astonishing ending that took me completely by surprise.
From across the Pacific, fighter pilots, Danny Hardy, and larger-than-life, Birch Bai, banded together to become sworn brothers. Joined at the hip, they battled the Japanese invaders in the skies over the sacred soil of China. Their daring exploits became well-known and made them valuable targets for the enemy. When not engaged in mortal combat, they always found time to explore their feelings of love for the women that came into their lives and captivated their hearts and souls.
