This was another solid book in the Peacekeeper series. It starts with slavers kidnapping a child and a chase through the woods with some good action that consumes the first third of the book. The peacekeepers also discover a new hidden cave, called "The Citadel" as per the title, and discover there a new giant ship to add to their growing arsenal.
The middle part of the book is a bit melancholy as it deals with the death of a beloved character and the messages that character has left behind for the others. It is very well written and poignant, with some good retrospective on the previous novels in the series.
The last third of the book gets back to the action and introduces us to a rogue U.N. group trying to take over the United States. This group has tanks and attack helicopters, as well as a nuclear missile that is faster than anything the peacekeepers can put up to stop it. The method they attempt is ingenious and well grounded in flight dynamics.
The only reason I rated this as only 4 stars instead of 5 stars was that I thought the middle part, though well done, went on a bit too long, especially for a slow reader like myself who likes lots of action. It is still well worth reading and a great addition to the series.
