First of all, I want to thank Tyndale Publishers for sending me this book so that I could write this review.
Now, this was a very good book. I loved the way it was written and it caused an incredibly crazy and insane adrenaline rush in every chapter! I mean how many people have adrenaline rushes sitting on their bed?!
This is a Christian book and has quite a few Christian characters in it that are all telling Pike Morgan, who thinks he is better off without anyone in his life, in different ways that God is in control of his life, although he doesn’t believe it.
I have to say that my favorite character is a little boy named Hector. I think he is supposed to be 10 years old, and Mel Odom (the author) gave him an excellent role to play in Pike’s life, as the little boy that makes Pike second guess his solitary life and want to almost forget the past that he wants to dwell in the rest of his life.
I would not recommend this book for kids under 13 or 14 years of age, or maybe even 15 based on their maturity level. It is kind of violent and pretty descriptive. However, there was nothing sexually impure in this book, just lots and lots of guns.
So, if you like reading about the war and Marines, I recommend this book as good read!
