Reviewed by Trevor Otieno for Readers' Favorite

Blood Sapphire’s Revenge is a superbly written, thoroughly researched, highly absorbing book. I was definitely on the edge of my seat the entire time. In the Hadhramaut region of eastern Yemen, Sergeant Haddy Abrams of the Israel Defense Forces kills a known terrorist with an unsurpassed sniper shot. As a result, she is forced into a combat situation with a devilish Eastern European oligarch who is focused on destroying Jerusalem with nuclear weapons. Through the integration of high-octane action and existential queries about truth, meaning, and purpose, this tale reinvents the military thriller genre. There is a lot of violence and the perfect amount of sexual situations. Get a copy of Bruce Farmer’s book to learn the outcome.

I truly loved how Sergeant Haddy overcame her dark despair, hopelessness, and damaged history to defeat a vicious, power-hungry tycoon determined to destroy Israel and eventually rule the entire globe. Sergeant Haddy is portrayed as a brave character fighting an almost overwhelming but plausible modern battle in Blood Sapphire’s Revenge. Because of the exceptional detail in Bruce Farmer’s writing, I was able to relate to the characters and the plot better. I appreciate Farmer’s intelligent and engrossing style since it sent my mind on a rollercoaster of different possibilities. Due to its action-packed content, I heartily recommend this book to fans of thrillers. Farmer should produce more of this intriguing content.

His tremendously vivid depictions of scenes made the reading experience feel like watching a movie. He uniquely and impressively captures the mood and setting. Bruce wonderfully develops his cast, which featured exciting characters. He outlines their traits and emotions lucidly, making it easy for me to connect with them.

Blood Sapphire's Revenge by Bruce Farmer is a terrorist thriller plotted just the way a good thriller should be. Israeli Defense Force Staff Sergeant Haddy Abrams is hemmed in from all sides after taking down a dreaded Islamic extremist in Yemen. An enemy known simply as "X" is out to get her. Escaping a suicide bombing is just the beginning of what lies in store for her. Her enemy is determined to destroy Jerusalem using a nuclear weapon and Haddy Abrams will not allow it to happen. She joins forces with Detective Wolf James of the NYC Police department to locate and take out "X" before it is too late, but the odds are stacked against them.

Bruce Farmer spins a spellbinding tale packed with action and is a perfect read for fans of military and terrorist thrillers. The setting is stunningly described and the author strongly develops the hostilities engulfing the regions in which the narrative takes place. The conflicts are deftly handled, with religious and political underpinnings, social classes, and persistent terrorist threats. The characters are not just rock-solid but nuanced, and a sense of mystery is built around the character known as "X" who poses a global threat. Blood Sapphire's Revenge features a female protagonist that readers will adore. The military elements of the novel are meticulously written. It is one of those books I want to see made into a movie. This one is a winner.
