MY REVIEW: (LAWonder10)
Marine, Chad Corallis is an angry depressed man. While dedicating himself to service for his country, in Marine Special Forces, he sacrificed a limb to save others. Now, how can he be any good to anyone? His whole life has been entered on being a career Marine. He knows nothing else. The most he can hope for is an office job which would drive him crazy! He presently mopes around his parents home..useless.
Chad had encouraged his best friend to join the military, as well. Chad was not able to attend his best friend's wedding. A few months after being wed, his friend was killed in a hospital bombing that should never have happened. Was he responsible for his death, also? Guilt added to his depression. His parents had kept that event from him until months after he was injured.
Ironically, Chad's best friend's widow, Lexi, had applied - an received - a position Chad's mother had posted. Chad's friend never knew Lexi was pregnant. She only discovered this after his funeral.
When Chad discovered Lexi was pregnant and in the desolate and dangerous ares she was in, he remembered the promise he made to His friend before the wedding. He felt forced to honor that promise. Little did he know the "force" he would be working against.
This novel addresses some of the many sacrifices made by those in armed forces and their families. Additionally it address, illegal poaching, and the inner strength individuals fin within themselves.
The characters feel very real and the background scenes are vividly portrayed in script. The reader will, truly, feel herself/himself connected to the characters and the African terrain.
I offer a Four and a Half Stars rating.
