Since When Did Foreign Terrorists...
...speak as if they were born in the good old U.S. of A?
When reading the dialogue of the sub commander and his officer (I'm assuming it's a submarine here), I quickly realized that their names were Russian and they were speaking about the Americans, but they talked without a hint of a Russian accent. Makes it difficult to distinguish the good guys from the terrorist nations if they all talk alike. Here's an example:
(Turkish) "Not a problem, General...I wanted to be a part of the discussion."
(Russian) "Mr. President, I'm terribly sorry to hear what happened yesterday."
The plot was good and well-paced, but dragged in some parts. The characters weren't great; cookie cutter, but it's hard to write military personnel without sounding cliché. The dialogue wasn't horrible, which helped, except that every person in every nation spoke the same (as mentioned already.) Mechanically, it was done really well.
Overall, not a bad effort, but if you're going to write an international novel, at least try to research
