The Way Of The Brave by Susan May Warren. A Review

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.

My Thoughts

A gripping adventure that reels you in from the start.
It’s been a while since I read a book by Susan May Warren but she’s an auto buy author because I know once I get to read her books I’d enjoy every minute of it and this was no exception.
The thrills, the dangers involved in mountain climbing, the details, the romance. It all blended together beautifully.
Orion and Jenny are bound by a past in Afghanistan and the memories from that period haunt them dearly. They struggle through all these trying to understand why certain things have happened but also running away from the memories that seem to hold them bound. I loved their journeys of faith. They questioned everything and especially why if God is there why should bad things happen to good people. But we remember that God is sovereign and we live in a fallen world where unfortunately these things cannot be prevented. It doesn’t make God less of who He is. I love how they finally  learned to surrender and let Him take control.
It was also exciting to see the way the characters blended together from different stories without any confusion.
This was an exciting start to a new series and I’d definitely be looking forward to the next one.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley. All opinions expressed are solely mine
