    Another adventure featuring Captain Banks and the S-Squad. This time Killer Spiders...and not the little kind. Some of bad boys are the size of cars or bigger! The S-Squad is on the run once again. Pretty much all action. These S-Squad stories are short and not full of personalization. They never seem to catch a break. Mission after mission. Still, I like these stories and will continue to read them.

    The characters are, as always, simple-yet-interesting. The squad dynamics have some detail to them, particularly with the new recruits added. The living members of the archeological team are strong and interesting, particularly Maggie Boyd. And, as always, Wiggins is the comedian of the group who brings the occasional needed laugh that keeps the squad from getting overwhelmed. There’s a nice added bit of archeological interest to this volume, including ancient tunnels and mosaics depicting Romans The characters are, as always, simple-yet-interesting.

There’s a nice added bit of archeological interest to this volume, including ancient tunnels and mosaics depicting Romans fighting giant spiders. The hostage crisis gives us the chance to see how the spiders can take on an entire town. (Content warning for child death.) And the sheer number of spiders–oh my! This fight won’t be easy on our heroes! These books are fairly short and simple, but are wonderful examples of the military-vs.-monsters genre. They’re brief and seriously enjoyable–kind of like candy–and I can’t wait for more! Original review posted on my blog: http://www.errantdreams.com/2019/05/r...

    I've read all six books in this series, and this one is easily the creepiest since S-Squad #1: 'Infestation', and my favorite since then. The specific monsters this time (big, nasty spiders) should easily cause you a sleepless night, ... or more. But as always, the main attraction here is the Team. Our boys are back together again: Banks, Hynd and Wiggins, with 3 new recruits. There's plenty of smokin', shootin', and playful banter, with some archaeology and history thrown in as a bonus.

Their situation looks dire. But with these chaps, that's just another day at the office. A fun, creepy, enjoyable read. Truly hoping the author has ideas enough for a few more.

    Could tell the difference between this and the last one right from the beginning, the characters were being fun again and the action comes quickly. The squad gets three new members joining the surviving three and I was glad to see that, was worried adding new people was being ignored. Of course, Wiggins gets a promotion meaning he gets more money per every Sarge's wife joke and action movie reference. (It wouldn't be a proper review from me if I didn't rag on him.) The spiders ..... Oh, man. A pro Could tell the difference between this and the last one right from the beginning, the characters were being fun again and the action comes quickly.

The spiders ..... Oh, man. A proper scary creature at any size. The author used every part of them well. Fangs dripping venom, hairy bodies, many eyes shining in the darkness, the sharp ends of feet making noises hitting surfaces of things .. Argh. Well done, but argh... The action in this one just never lets up, and the Squad members and new supporting character's personalities shine through again. It's not bogged down by occult things it's not prepared to go all-in on, and while still not having deep characters they are once again funny without being annoying and very personable. Even the location is awesome. It makes for a perfect siege situation and I always enjoy those. Then you have the fun alternative history stuff, mostly Roman this time. I was really worried about this one after the last book, but I just can't say enough nice things about it. S-Squad works best in my opinion when it goes at a blistering pace and keeps the focus on the action and squad member's personalities and not about over-explaining the creatures or magic/occult elements. For the non-stop action and awesomely done creature, this one gets the full stars.

    Operation Syria finds Captain John Banks and his S-Squad soldiers dropped into the desert to rescue some trapped British archaeologists caught up in a hostile war zone. However, this is no simple evacuation mission as the brave team soon find themselves battling giant carnivorous spiders in another fast-paced Boys Own adventure from talented author William Meikle. Operation Syria is the sixth book in the growing S-Squad series but rather than running out of steam I actually think this is one of Operation Syria finds Captain John Banks and his S-Squad soldiers dropped into the desert to rescue some trapped British archaeologists caught up in a hostile war zone. However, this is no simple evacuation mission as the brave team soon find themselves battling giant carnivorous spiders in another fast-paced Boys Own adventure from talented author William Meikle. Operation Syria is the sixth book in the growing S-Squad series but rather than running out of steam I actually think this is one of the most action-packed and satisfying stories in the collection. Most readers will identify with a fear and dread of spiders so by mixing that primal fear with a thrilling run, shoot and hide scenario I think this book hits the jackpot. Anyone looking for some much-needed escapism in these desperate times should not hesitate to pick up this spellbinding novel. Just for information there’s no need to read any of the previous books in the series first but for those who might be interested I would also highly recommend all the other earlier novels in the S-Squad collection.

What they find upon arrival is a horror beyond imagining. Yes, there are spiders, but not your everyday garden variety. These critters are the size of dogs, and bigger, and they eat anything or anyone they can find. There is plenty of action here but not a lot of character development. Perhaps that happened in the earlier books. I don't know. If you like serious literature you won't find it here but if you like lots of shoot em up action, this is the read for you. I had a wee bit of a bollux with the Scottish dialogue but that doesn't diminish the overall enjoyment of the read. I'll read more from this author.

    About what you'd expect from this series. Quick to the action, hints of the supernatural creature's origins, but nothing concrete. Lots of historical cases and cool artifacts, but no meat to the story. Great monster killing action, but I WOULD LOVE deeper exposition. Double or triple the length and go into the Romans, the Persians, and the Babylonian encounters with the spider monsters. PLEASE!! About what you'd expect from this series.

    S Squad are sent on a routine mission to extract some archeologists, but nothing is ever routine for them. With a few new team members, the squad arrive to find the area infested with giant spiders, who are now cutting off escape routes. Good story as usual that moves at a nice pace.
