In corrupt Russia, an erratic Vladimir Putin is determined to forge his country into a formidable superpower once again. He intends to redraw the map of Europe, and will go to impossible extremes to realize his fantasies -- including shooting down a civilian airliner packed with tourists bound for China. Kremlin scientists have developed a radical new weapon that could forever alter modern warfare. NATO, locked in a tense standoff over Ukraine, Poland, and Estonia, knows Putin will not hesitate to use it. But there is one man who can bring the world back from the brink: Britain's foremost intelligence asset, Lord Alexander Hawke.

Warriors was tooo long; Bell could have written a better book with 125 less pages and less subplots. Perhaps tighten the plot; not so many subplots (who cared that the navy crew boarded the centurion since there was no development)? (Didn't need the Christmas Eve subplot about the couple to be wedded and the snow!
How many authors introduce a wonderful family, then only barely mention them halfway through the story and then spend only the last pages on their recovery? Never do get to see the Chase reunion!
The family, seems to me, was to be the center of the plot and the author certainly gave them short shrift! My first read and it never got off the ground.

I found this a profoundly unsatisfying read. It seems the author is writing for teenagers rather than adults. The narrative moves along briskly enough, but the Alexander Hawke character lacks credibility, as do most of his other characters. To compare this book to others of the genre is to insult writers like Vince Flynn, Clive Cussler or Lee Child.
