Review: The Price of Valor by Susan May Warren



Former Navy SEAL Hamilton Jones thought that the love of his life was dead. But when a girl claiming to be his daughter shows up with a dire message from his wife, Ham knows he will stop at nothing to find her and bring her home.

Kidnapped by rebels while serving as an interpreter in Ukraine, Signe Kincaid has spent the past decade secreting out valuable information about Russian assets in the US to her CIA handler. Fearing for her daughter after being discovered as an operative, Signe sends her to Ham for safekeeping. She's ready to give her life for her country, and she can hardly expect Ham to rescue her after breaking his heart over and over.

When Ham discovers the reason Signe has kept her distance, he must choose between love for his wife and love for the nation he has vowed to protect. Will he save the many? Or the few?

My Thoughts:

I have been waiting for Ham and Signe's story since this series began and I am very happy to finally have closure. It did not come without heartache, and the why's, and the seriousness of their situation- but it came in spite of all of that.

Author Warren certainly puts her characters through the ringer. Yes they are heroes and spies and secret agents, but wow. And when you throw in a fractured family and a love that is determined by strength of will to forgive all wrongs, then prepare to hold on to your reading seat. Sometimes I just wanted to shake some sense into Signe, for her past choices and for the choices she was continually making that seemed like she just did not learn her lesson. Ham was such a hero and his love for her, his daughter, and the driving tenacity that he had as he strived to get the life he knew he wanted with them both.

This was a good third book in this series. Not only do we get Ham and Signe's story, but also closure for Orion and Jenny. And that was another tearjerker for me. Every time author Warren writes a new series, it becomes my new favorite.

I received a copy of this novel courtesy of Revell publishers through Interviews and Reviews. I was not required to post a positive review and all views and opinions are my own.
