Wolf and his fellow SEAL team members have saved many lives, and been in even more harrowing situations, but their latest mission might prove the most difficult of all. Charged with rescuing American soldier, Sergeant Penelope Turner, from the clutches of ISIS, the men infiltrate the refugee camp where she’s believed to be held. The conditions are horrific, the search nearly impossible, but Penelope herself could prove the key to their success…if the SEALs can interpret her clues.
An unforgiving desert, perilous mountain terrain, a rising body count and insurgents on the hunt…all of this and more stands between the SEALs completing their mission and returning home to their women, left to bravely deal with fears of their own stateside.
Sometimes a mission is more than one team can handle. With a little help from newfound friends, the SEALS won’t stop until they’ve won the day. Failure is not an option.
** Protecting the Future is the 8th and final book in the Seal of Protection Series. Each book is a stand-alone, with no cliffhanger endings.
Protecting the Future
If you have read the SEAL of Protection stories, Protecting the Future is a perfect summation. You get to peek in on everyone and how they have changed in the few years since the last book ended, you get a little peek into a mission, and you get a peek into a few new characters that will spin off into the new series (PS-Super excited about all of these! Susan’s writing never disappoints me!). This is NOT a book I would read if I hadn’t read all the other books because there would be WAY too many characters to try and keep up with.
So, assuming you have read all the SEAL books, you will love Protecting the Future! I loved getting a peak into the guys mission! It was a serious situation that really added the drama and suspense because, while you knew they would make it out okay, you are wondering HOW they will make it out and will they be permanently injured! It was nerve wracking quite honestly and thats what I love about books in this genre. You are also getting a deeper look into the girls lives when they are left home wondering. You get to experience them trying to be single moms, having a baby, and continuing on with their lives even though they are missing their other half! It is really an honest look into the reality of military life which is pretty cool. I am glad the books focus on more than just what these awesome SEALs do because what their wives do is pretty awesome as well!
