KimP5 Stars Out Of 5A Great ReadFebruary 15, 2017KimPQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5If you are a fan of military fiction, then youll enjoy Mel Odoms Called to Serve series. In book one, Deployed, Odom tells the story of Lance Corporal Bekah Shaw and her Marine Reserve Unit. He doesnt just give you the units story after deployment to Mogadishu; but he weaves in their civilian life as well. This is the explosive tell of Marines sent to protect the humanitarian efforts for the Somali nationals and the hunt for terrorists bent on destroying it all.
USMCGirl2 Stars Out Of 5DeployedJuly 12, 2015USMCGirlQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0As a female Marine, I have so many issues with this book. The author didn't do the appropriate research on the Marine Corps or female Marines. Not only that, several scenes are so unrealistic, I found it hard to keep reading. The story didn't tie together very well either. There's no real closure @ the end either. I can't go into detail without giving it away, but take my word it's not at all what you would expect giving how the second half of the book plays out & again even after that, there's still no clear ending. The action scenes were good, but unbelievable because 2 people can't take on ALL the terrorists & not run out of ammo or get shot or hurt in some manner. It also showed the author's lack of research in Marine Corps manuevers & he was constantly mixing Army terms into Marine Corps lingo... & he even had Pike putting his cover in his pocket a big fat no-no in the Marines. It's that kind of lack of attention to detail that makes this book so crappy- that & no clear ending.
Helen MAge: 55-65Gender: Female4 Stars Out Of 5Eye OpeningJanuary 12, 2015Helen MAge: 55-65Gender: FemaleQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Becka Shaw enlisted as a Marine Reservist to try to make a good life for her and her son. She is deployed to Mogadishu to hunt a terrorist.
Rageh Daud lives in Mogadishu, has lost his wife and son and is hunting for the same terrorist.
Becka and Rageh are the main characters in the books, but the author does a good job of introducing others that are connected to them. The beginning of the book jumps between the US and Mogadishu but once Becka's unit is deployed the stories blend together and it becomes easier to read. The stories in the book are very violent and is hard to read at times. However, the stories give insite into the lives our military members and the dangers they are in when deployed to war zones. After reading this book I have a glimps of what a strong person it takes to be a military member and how hard it is for their families and that only through the Grace of God they survive the situations they are put in. I would recommend this book but would also caution about the violence.
debwilsonSummerfield, FLAge: 18-24Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5December 21, 2013debwilsonSummerfield, FLAge: 18-24Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Sergeant Lance Corporal Bekah Shaw is a dedicated mother and reservist Marine, trying to make a better life for herself and her son, Travis. When her team is activated to Somalia, she leaves her son behind to put everything she holds dear on the line for the sake of her country.
Rageh Daud has lost everybody and everything that means anything to him. Seeking revenge for the deaths of his family, Daud sweeps the desert killing anyone who stands in his way. Against his instincts, he becomes attached to an orphan boy that reminds him of his son. And when the boy's safety crosses the American military's path, both sides come together to do the unthinkable to achieve their mission.
Mel Odum takes us to the hot country of Somalia, where the day to day lives of our military becomes a reality. You can see the world through their eyes and feel everything they feel. You root for each one to succeed, even though they are constantly at odds. This book is full of action, a well written plot, with original, interesting characters that kept me turning pages. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and will recommend it to everyone I know.
