    1. While the frustrating plot armor is as thick as ever, Flashpoint does offer an enjoyable dose of action packed genre fiction.

    2. Flashpoint is a great introduction to the Acts of War, Iron Kingdoms Chronicles. It gives a good insight on the characters and all the details surrounding them.
