"The Rings of Allah" is a fascinating in-depth look into the world of radical Islamic terrorism. The technical knowledge of the author comes through in the minute detail of weapon systems and their use. The book, written in a chronological sequence of the development of the nuclear industry, gives the reader a detailed background of what we are faced with in the future. The plot was believable and the characters realistic as their lives were woven together in a tapestry of intrigue and human drama that pitted the beliefs of radical Islamic terrorists against mainstream American democratic values. The story keeps the reader connected to the real-life events as they unfold in a suspenseful battle to save America from nuclear holocaust. Even though this is a fictional plot, it is a must-read for those who are interested in what we are faced with from the radical terrorists because it can evolve into a morbid reality. The ending is spell-binding and unpredictable, and will leave the reader with an unspoken sense of what can happen in our country if we don't take action.”
– Philip W. Little, Author of Hell In A Briefcase and Hostile Intent.
“Stunning - A Must Read! Frighteningly real! Boyland, the new grand master of the techno-thriller, has given us a compelling page-turner that captures the reader with an avalanche of brilliant detail and well thought out characters complete with personality and quirks. "Rings" captures the reader with the clear possibility of nuclear attacks on U.S. soil by fanatical Muslim terrorists...”
– William DeNisi, author of Trinity.
“Once I got into the story I couldn’t put it down. The ending was a page turner. It is the Republican’s answer to Fahrenheit 9/11”
– Jack Wiles, Retired NASA propulsion engineer.
“I spent part of my vacation reading your book, I couldn’t put it down, even though my family was giving me a hard time. Now my husband is reading it.”
– Betty Pearson, Real Estate Agent, Melbourne, FL
“I really enjoyed The Rings of Allah. It was very thought provoking and absolutely jam-packed with fascinating information. One of my joys of reading is expanding my knowledge about subjects I know little about. This book certainly fills the bill! I have already passed the book along to a friend and he also gave it a thumbs up review. The connection between the wealthy Saudis and Al Queda has been a point that has always confused me, but now I believe it is a bit clearer. Ralph was a great character to point out all the confusion and madness of the young well-educated Arabs. I have had several of these bright and idealistic Arabs in class and it seemed impossible to me to view them as potential terrorists. One was from Algeria, but he is white or Arabic in appearance. He explained that he was a Berber, a white African tribe . . . Sniffing out the terrorists from the clueless must be a real challenge. That was a real strength of your book. So much can be pulled in under absolutely ordinary circumstances. You made it very realistic! I am almost afraid to read your next novel about bio-terrorism - but don’t let that stop you from letting me know when it is out!”
– Mary Pier, Professor of English, St. Louis, MO.
“A chilling techno-thriller. Accurate technical details and well drawn characters. The list of characters is useful and should be included in all novels.”
– Frank Perkins Retired electronic engineer, world traveler, fly fisherman and author of Travel Adventures on the Company's Nickel and Whales, Termites and Dragons: Adventures on Volunteer Expeditions.
“Enthralling and Fearfully Captivating Lee Boyland has hit the nail on the head ... and it just may be the last nail to a coffin. Pages into the first chapter I saw the seeds of what was to come being planted. Disgruntled Russian atomic technicians, rouge KGB agents and terrorist cell members all moving in a common direction... to destroy the Great Satan... our America... with a nuclear weapon. Although it is a work of fiction, this riveting tale is inundated with historically accurate Middle Eastern occurrences that informed and terrorized. At the very least, you will learn a little bit about the enemy. At the most, you will have nightmares. Lee Boyland has done his work well. Keep the lights on when you read this one and watch the headlines... time will tell just how prophetic his novel actually was.”
– Ty P. Norling, Award-Winning Author of 'Who Mourns for Majik: Book One of the Memoirs Trilogy'
A Must Read for All U.S. Citizens. (Amazon review)
In "Rings of Allah," Mr. Boyland blends real weapons knowledge with sharply drawn characters through a compelling story that shows true Islamic objectives for destroying our country. It is clear, after reading this, that we are in the fight of our history. Those in the U.S.A. who do not believe that there is an in-house massive propaganda campaign being waged by Islamic extremists need to read this book. Thank you, Lee for adding your voice to their frightening agenda.
- Holly Fox Vellekoop, Author, "STONE HAVEN: Murder Along the River.
"I just finished " The Rings of Allah ". I loved the book , couldn't put it down, I read it in 2 days.. His style reminded me of Tom Clancy who is one of my all time favorite authors. Besides being educational it was also prophetic. Let me know if he writes another as I will certainly buy it. We'll be passing this onto others to read.
