A battle for survival against the elements, brings Orion Starr face to face with a familiar face as they fight to get off of Denali alive.
Orion returns home from his time in Afghanistan injured after a failed mission to his home in Alaska. When a group of climbers goes missing--a group that includes a former ally, Orion agrees to join the rescue team to go up after them. Orion has never wanted to go up the mountain, because he respects it's dangerous beauty and is still recovering from injuries he received while on duty. His anger has kept him from taking good opportunities to live up to his potential, and I really loved how he had a faithful and encouraging friend in Hamilton.
Jenny has a passion for climbing, and struggles to come to terms with the guilt that she carries. The mountain is unpredictable and Murphy's Law seems to be out in full force. I admired her determination and dedication to leading her friends to safety.
The first in a brand new series by Susan May Warren, sure to thrill, with her signature Easter eggs from previous novels--I love seeing some familiar faces. Filled with dangers around every corner, sometimes it was hard to read because it just seemed like these people couldn't catch a break. There was a lot going on, as well as a well built back story. Strong characters, who must beat the odds in order to survive. Full of action and adventure!
I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
