The Way of the Brave

Susan May Warrren. Revell, $15.99 trade paper (352p) ISBN 978-0-8007-3584-5
Warren (You Don’t Know Me) kicks off her new Global Search and Rescue series with a heart-stopping tale. Orion Starr is still haunted by his deployment as a rescue paratrooper in Afghanistan, particularly an ambush that cost four soldiers their lives. Removing himself from his secluded Alaska home, he agrees to team up with Hamilton “Ham” Jones to climb Mount Huntington, and, along the way, Ham tries to recruit Orion to his search and rescue team. In a separate thread, Jenny Calhoun and her two friends are climbing Denali. Jenny, a former CIA psychiatrist, is also running from her biggest mistake—mistrusting an informant that led to the same ambush in Afghanistan. An avalanche and whiteout separate Jenny and friends from their guide and traps them on Denali. Orion and Ham hear of the avalanche and head over to help. But another whiteout blows in soon after they find the climbers, leaving two injured and everyone snowed in on the mountain. As Orion and Jenny battle the mountain, they also wrestle with their past, anger, and shame, and come to believe God didn’t bring them to the mountain to betray them, but perhaps to heal them. Warren lays the foundation of a promising faith-influenced series with this exciting outing. (Jan.)
