About The Warrior Spy (from the back cover):
The CIA has a problem. Its best clandestine operatives keep turning up dead. And now, as if things couldn’t get any worse, a Defense Department scientist, specializing in high-energy lasers, has gone missing. America needs answers. And fast. 

Delta Force operator Reagan Rainey, on temporary duty assignment with a secret CIA entity known as Directorate Twelve, is tasked to do just that–get answers. But to do so, he not only has to outwit and outmaneuver a dangerous cabal of foreign actors believed to be at the center of it all, he must contend with a deadly assassin who is bent on destroying him.

Relying on his bedrock faith in Almighty God, Rainey is forced to race against the clock to uncover what is really going on and why, before his beloved America is pushed to the brink of war.

 

This is the first military thriller book I’ve read and I was not disappointed. The Warrior Spy was fast paced and full of action. It took me about fifty pages or so to really get into the book and familiarize myself with the characters. At first, I wasn’t sure who the main characters were going to be. The POVs jumped around quite often within the first few chapters and I wasn’t a huge fan of that. By less than a quarter of the way into the book everything straightened out.

The characters themselves, I thought were excellent. Each one of them were driven and have their own set of dreams and morals.  I really enjoyed the names of everyone who makes an appearance in the book. They were all unique and I could tell they were well thought out. Violence played a big part in this book and was graphic, but not overly so.

The action sequences were well paced and descriptive. They flowed nicely, and I could picture the scenes in my mind’s eye perfectly.

The action sequences were well paced and descriptive. They flowed nicely, and I could picture the scenes in my mind’s eye perfectly. I feel that the right things were described to immerse you into the story without drowning you with information. If not familiar with it, some of the military and weaponry talk was a bit confusing as I wasn’t sure what they were talking about. But, I could figure it out well enough through the descriptive writing of Jay.

Overall, this book was very good. I loved the description (as I’ve already made clear) and the characters were relatable. I am not a huge fan of more than two or three POVs in a book but I still enjoyed The Warrior Spy.
