I’m reading this series with a Goodreads group. It’s a spinoff of the Titanium Security series we completed earlier. This is the next to the last book.
FBI Special Agent Nate (Doc) Schroeder is the team medic on the Hostage Rescue Team. He epitomizes optimism, the one person who can lift everyone’s spirits in the most dire situations. Now that he’s married to Taya, the love of his life and the woman he helped rescue years ago, Nate’s light shines even brighter. And, because of his specialized role on the team, he’s always the first to run into danger when there’s someone needing rescue. Unfortunately, in this latest tragedy, his natural instincts almost cost him his life and may have permanently changed the essence of the man.
This is a short story but highly impactful for all the action, angst, excitement and emotional toll it wreaked. The event that leveled Nate is catastrophic and is vividly portrayed. It was depicted so well that I felt like I was there! In the aftermath, I also understood Nate’s reaction, even though it surprised me that he could go there.
I enjoyed this story, especially the opportunity to get updates on the rest of the team and see them in action as a team supporting each other outside of a mission. Their devotion and commitment to Nate as he struggled to find his way back defined them in the best of ways. This is quite the gem.
