"Operation: Firebrand" by Jefferson Scott This book is a fun and thrilling adventure into danger. When Jason Kromer becomes a Christian, it becomes difficult doing his job as a Navy SEAL. He balks during a mission, unable to take the life of the intended target. Then the team he is on gets into trouble during the exfiltration, and Jason's best friend gets blown into the air by a grenade. Mired in guilt, Jason leaves the Navy when his term is up. The job he finds is less than satisfying and well-deserved in Jason's eyes. But then he gets a job offer of a different kind. It's tempting, but how can he lead a team into enemy territory when he was such a failure in the last team he was on? This riveting novel has it all: memorable characters, suspenseful action, and plenty of humor to keep you smiling. The author was adept at drawing me into the scene and keeping me there. And there were plenty of moments where I was barely able to breathe. The danger crept too close to the characters I cared about. I didn't see how they could possibly survive. I highly recommend this entertaining book.
All I can say is WOW. I just finished your book, and I wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed it. It is quite a different direction for you from the computer fiction, and I am glad that you took that step. At first, before I began reading, I was wondering if you really should have moved away from the computer genre, but now, I am pleasantly surprised and really glad that you did. I read an average of about one book every two weeks. It is probably one of my most favorite things to do in my spare time. Of all the books that I have read this year, I think this is maybe in the top five, right there with another of my favorites "Blessed Child".
