"The Way of the Brave grabbed me at the first chapter and never let go. Susan May Warren is a master storyteller."--Rachel Hauck, New York Times bestselling author of The Wedding Dress and The Memory House
Haunted by the memory of a rescue gone wrong, former pararescue jumper Orion Starr 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 in Alaska.
Jenny Calhoun's yearly extreme challenge with her best friends is her only escape from her guilt. The former CIA profiler and psychiatrist green-lighted an operation against the Taliban that ended in ambush and lives lost. When her cathartic climb on Denali turns deadly, she'll be forced to trust her life to the most dangerous of heroes--the man she nearly killed.
Orion and Jenny will have to put their wounds behind them to save their friends . . . and their hearts.

This is my first Susan May Warren book and the endorsements are very accurate--I was drawn in from the beginning and the action and adventure never let up. The two main characters, Orion Starr and Jenny Calhoun, have a bond of sorts. They actually met several years ago, they are each very accomplished in their perspective professions, and they both have a very fragile relationship with God. It is during a very intense and dangerous mountain rescue that Orion and Jenny must learn to trust each other and God. Will they begin to see each other as more than friends? Will their faith and trust be strong enough to see them through?
The Way of the Brave offers excitement and adventure coupled with friendship and romance and I recommend it to all who enjoy Christian romance. There is also an event at the end that suggests another great book in this Global Search and Rescue series.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Revell but I wasn't obligated to write a positive review. These are my own thoughts.
I was so incredibly excited when I saw this book! Susan May Warren is my favorite author, and when I saw she had a new rescue series coming out I could hardly contain myself. The Way Of The Brave was breathtaking. From the scenery, where you might need a blanket close by, to the relationships that have formed the characters, I could not put this book down. Warren took me on a one of a kind adventure and I couldn’t get enough. Jaw-dropping twists and turns kept me up late into the night trying to find a place to pause so I could sleep. Orion and Jenny are totally unique characters, and it was different that knew each other in the past. Decisions made caused an avalanche of events that tore apart what might have been. Little did they know God had a plan for them, even if it took a dangerous mountain to cause their paths to cross again.
I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Romantic Suspense. I can’t wait to see what the next story holds! I received a copy of this book from Revell Publishing and was no way forced to post a positive review. All opinions expressed are my own.
