Fire of the Raging Dragon

Fire of the Raging Dragon is a 2012 political thriller novel written by Don Brown. The novel explores the international political tension in disputed waters of the South China Sea.


A naval war erupts between China and Taiwan over the contested waters around the Spratly Islands, in which a fictional President of the United States sends the U.S. Navy between the Chinese and Taiwanese navies to try to stop the war. Things take a twist when the President's daughter is stationed aboard the submarine tender USS Emory S. Land , which is on station in the South China Sea when the war breaks out.[1] Thus the President's orders place his own daughter into harm's way,[2][3][4] The novel also features the U.S. warships USS Carl Vinson , USS Shiloh , USS Vicksburg , and the cruise missile submarine USS Georgia .[5]

Exploring the modern rise in power of the Chinese navy, the novel's antagonist is a fictional Chinese president who seeks to build China into a military superpower. Since the novel's publication, the Chinese navy has continued to expand in size and power.[6][7] By 2014, China was in the process of building its second aircraft carrier, with the first having been commissioned in 2012 about the time that Fire of the Raging Dragon was published.[8]

Fire of the Raging Dragon was the second novel released in Zondervan's Pacific Rim series.
