"A compelling amalgamation of sci-fi, military, political, and historical thriller." Publishers Weekly BookLife.

In 1942 US Fighting Tigers squadron commander John Chen comes face to face with his enemy, Japanese pilot, Tadao Kato. Ninety years later, in 2033, their great grandchildren are serving on the same side as part of Operation Red Dove, the first joint naval exercises between China and Japan to mark the signing of a new Sino-Japanese mutual defense treaty.

China is determined to forge a new empire in the East with Japan by its side. Its determination is about to be put to the test.

IN SHANGHAI, the cyber warfare personnel of Advanced Persistent Threat Team 23 are about to fire the first shot in a new global war.

ON OKINAWA, Defense Research Projects Agency drone pilot, 'Bunny' O'Hare prepares for the last field trial of the US Navy's next undersea stealth platform.

AND IN HER PRIVATE RESIDENCE inside Tokyo's Akasaka Palace, Princess Mitsuko Naishinno prepares to fulfil her dying father's wish, and wrest back control of Japan from a government which has sold her country's soul to China.

OKINAWA by FX Holden is a fast paced, action packed look at a near future where the next arms race will take place in cyberspace, where wars will be fought in secret above and below the seas, and the alliances of today will be upended by new geopolitical realities.

Readers' Favorite 5/5 star review OKINAWA

Okinawa: This is the Future of War by FX Holden is a meld of science fiction, military, historical, and futuristic genres, a novel with strong political themes and intrigue...

This is fiction that plots the geopolitical landscape of the future, a work that is as gripping as it is prophetic.

Readers who enjoy politics and who are keen on the political ambitions of the Chinese will enjoy this novel. The conflict is huge and it reflects the realities that dominate contemporary politics.

The novel is ingeniously plotted and the author's use of suspense makes it a page-turner. The shifts in the plotlines and the skillful use of subplots augment the satisfaction of readers.

The prose is powerful, the characters rock-solid and the setting expertly achieved. The way that cyberwar is developed portrays what the next world war might look like. The story takes into account the political and technological realities of our time and projects us into a future filled with conflict and how it possibly plays out.

This novel is as entertaining as it is thought-provoking.

Reviewed By Rabia Tanveer for Readers’ Favorite

Okinawa: This is the Future of War by FX Holden is the second book in the Future War series. This is a story of cyber warfare where the future of war is not just limited to weapons and blood. Set in 2033, the world is no longer as we thought it would be in the future. Japan and China have signed a new defense treaty and are now allies. They have big plans for the future of their nations and of the nations in the East. While the Chinese are trying to launch a new kind of global war, the Japanese government needs to be on their toes. Some people are not happy about their new allegiance with China and there might be a rebellion on their hands. In a world where the war is fought in cyberspace, how safe is anyone?

The future is bleak, especially considering how we have intertwined our lives in cyberspace. This is a fast-paced, action-packed political thriller that will have you on the edge of your seat. While there are many characters in the story, the most memorable of them all is Mitsuko Naishinno. To me, she was the real hero of this story, she was the one fighting for a cause she actually believed in and was ready to do whatever it took. The pace of the story was good; the narrative was smooth while the overall feel of the story was very intriguing. While the names of the military weapons and vehicles were a little difficult for me to pronounce, they added to the air of secrecy and confidentiality in the story. Overall, Okinawa: This is the Future of War by FX Holden is an intense novel that will keep you entertained for hours!
