About the Book
Former pararescue jumper Orion Starr is haunted by the memory of a rescue gone wrong. He may be living alone in Alaska now, but the pain of his failure–and his injuries–has followed him there from Afghanistan. He has no desire to join Hamilton Jones’s elite rescue team, but he also can’t shirk his duty when the call comes in to rescue three lost climbers on Denali.
Former CIA profiler and psychiatrist Jenny Calhoun’s yearly extreme challenge with her best friends is her only escape from the guilt that has sunk its claws into her. As a consultant during a top-secret mission to root out the Taliban, she green-lighted an operation that ended in ambush and lives lost. When her cathartic climb on Denali turns deadly, she’ll be forced to trust her life and the lives of her friends to the most dangerous of heroes–the man she nearly killed.
Her skills and his experience are exactly what’s needed to prevent another tragedy–but in order to truly set Orion free from his painful past, Jenny will have to reveal hers. They’ll have to put their wounds behind them to survive, but at what cost?
Leap into action with this high-octane, breakneck new series from bestselling author Susan May Warren.
In My Opinion
Susan May Warren is known for writing intense adventure stories but The Way of the Brave takes it to an entirely new level. While there’s not as much suspense as in past Warren books, the survival aspect kept me engaged and flipping through the pages.
The way Warren buts readers right there on Denali with her characters and the many, many treacherous situations makes you feel like you are right there with the characters. And this is a group of people you can’t help but want to hang out with.
Jenny’s character arc is my favorite. I learned so much about her and the journey she travels throughout this book is well-developed. Her friends add to the story and Orion, Ham, and Jake are alpha males I can’t get enough of (good thing there are more books coming!).
I would have liked more development in the romance between Jenny and Ry but because they have a history, I can live with it. Plus, I know we’ll get to spend more time with them in future books.
And speaking of future books, get ready because there are a couple whoppers at the end of the book that will have you looking up the release date of book two. I’ll save you a step: June 2, 2020.
