Coast and Anchor5 Stars Out Of 5Intense mountain scenes, daring adventure, sizzling emotionsJanuary 27, 2020Coast and AnchorQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Breathtaking Alaskan scenery, extreme mountain climbing, perilous conditions and intense emotions-all wrapped up in a suspenseful romance that will keep you hanging on the edge of your seat. It's a story of rescue - both emotionally and physically.
The lead female character, Jenny Calhoun, is a former CIA profiler and psychiatrist. She is intelligent, fearless and determined to accomplish her goal of climbing Denali. Orion Starr, a pararescue jumper and SEAL, haunted by a rescue mission that ended with death. Both filled with determination, one to climb a mountain and the other to stay far away from mountain adventures. The plot was gripping from the first chapter. With the expressive climbing scenes, no need to go on a mountain climbing expedition because you will feel as if you are on the mountain watching the scenes unfold. Hold on tight, because just when you think you can take a breath, the next paragraph will have you holding your breath all over again.
After reading this first Global Search and Rescue book, I'm adding another series to my TBR list. This year is starting off with several new series that will have me waiting impatiently for the next read.
ConnieKentuckyAge: Over 65Gender: Female4 Stars Out Of 5Intense Danger and Adventure!January 27, 2020ConnieKentuckyAge: Over 65Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This 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.
mypreciousbitsandmusings5 Stars Out Of 5A Thrilling TaleJanuary 27, 2020mypreciousbitsandmusingsQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5A gripping adventure that reels you in from the start.
It's been a while since I read a book by Susan May Warren but she's an auto buy author because I know once I get to read her books I'd enjoy every minute of it and this was no exception.
The thrills, the dangers involved in mountain climbing, the details, the romance. It all blended together beautifully.
Orion and Jenny are bound by a past in Afghanistan and the memories from that period haunt them dearly. They struggle through all these trying to understand why certain things have happened but also running away from the memories that seem to hold them bound. I loved their journeys of faith. They questioned everything and especially why if God is there why should bad things happen to good people. But we remember that God is sovereign and we live in a fallen world where unfortunately these things cannot be prevented. It doesn't make God less of who He is. I love how they finally learned to surrender and let Him take control.
It was also exciting to see the way the characters blended together from different stories without any confusion.
This was an exciting start to a new series and I'd definitely be looking forward to the next one.

JoyONew HampshireAge: 18-24Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Read under a mountain of blankets!January 25, 2020JoyONew HampshireAge: 18-24Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I recommend reading The Way of the Brave by Susan May Warren while buried under a mountain of blankets. You'll still be cold, but you can remind yourself that you're not lost in an avalanche of ice and snow as you burrow deeper into the blankets, LOL!
As a mountain girl, I enjoyed the snowy nature of The Way of the Brave! However, I know nothing about climbing an icy mountain prone to avalanches, so there was a lot of technical information to learn. The author definitely did a lot of research for The Way of the Brave, and the action picked up pretty quickly. I absolutely LOVE a good Man VS Nature story, and the author nailed this! The captivating intensity was everything I hoped to find in such a storyline. Additionally, there's intriguing and emotionally-tugging setup for future books in the series -- something the author also does really well!
Orion and Jenny's relationship was forged in the fires of shared hardships! Their backstory -- though brief -- gave them a strong connection. A connection they both held on to when their worlds were shattered. I enjoyed seeing how that connection deepened when they reconnected -- through even more hardships! I also enjoyed the setup for Jake and Aria's story and getting a glimpse of who they are now.
The hero quality of this series is evident. Like seriously, look at that swoony cover, and have you read the title??? But what makes a hero? Is it a man who never needs help? Is it a woman who has never made mistakes? These questions make up some of the spiritual themes of Orion and Jenny's story as their separately (and together), confront their fears, break free from the past, and bravely give God the broken pieces of their hearts. And the way God's love and grace leaps from the pages might result in a soggy book!
Four Stars ~ The Way of the Brave by Susan May Warren is an exciting story with an important message! This is the first book in the author's new Global Search and Rescue Series from Revell. I'm looking forward to the next book, The Heart of a Hero!
