Author Provided Copy
Released: March 5, 2015
Genre: War, Horror
Length: 180 pages
"War is hell," but something about Combat Outpost (COP) Najil seems worse than the old adage traditionally implies. Ten members of the “Reaper” platoon arrive at COP Najil where the previous unit had hunkered down avoiding something . . . something that they had been unwilling to talk about, before they rushed off the base. What could scare a company of hardened infantryman? While the Reapers settle into their new surroundings, strange occurrences become more commonplace. Things only get worse when they are assigned to hold Observation Post (O.P.) #7, while the rest of their unit clears the valley below of the Taliban threat. How can the Reapers possibly overcome the deadly threat of an unseen enemy as they die one by one?
Review by Stormi:
I would like to say thank you for allowing me to read and review this book.
I want to start off by saying I never read books like this, that are based in a military setting, and so I have nothing to compare it to. I did find this book interesting though. I absolutely love that that the interpreter was from Alabama. I am as well, so Roll Tide!
Honestly, the book started slow but picked up pace quick and just continued on. I got to the point where I couldn't put it down. I read it in one sitting. This book was a crazy, scary, and a very good read. Definitely one I'd recommend. Only one question though, was the ending left open for another book or was it left open so the reader is left to wonder?
