God forgives when we ask sincerely.
Men, not so much.
Self, even less.
And the Dead....never.
Pastor Mike loves his family, and loves his flock. Life is good, but to get there he had to traverse a trail of blood. The faces that haunt his nightmares are no longer just specters, and a long thought dead enemy is about to unleash a very real hell.

Faithful Warrior is a gut wrenching, exciting and moving tale about Pastor Mike, his family and his faith. His family includes his brothers in the military and his congregation as well as his wife and son. A third or fourth generation military man and a man of faith, encounters terrorists that threaten his life, his family and the world he has fought so hard to protect and prayed for its safety.
Forced to take the terrorist war to the terrorists on his home territory, Pastor Mike and his colleagues and brothers in arms race against the clock; tracking down an old nemesis and new ones as well. Corruption, gangs and a mysterious Mr. White add to the obstacles Pastor Mike and Paul Hogan have to maneuver to protect the center of the Midwest – Ohio.
Faithful Warrior is a carefully constructed terrorist/military tinged with faith thriller. The flashbacks add meat to the story but does not take away from the flow as so often happens – rather the flashbacks are appropriate and demonstrates the driving force behind each character.
Basil Sands expertly builds the plot, adding in twists and turns in places one does not expect. Bringing in gang members and a corrupt Mr. White is genius! Building relationships between the home-grown non-terrorist and mixing them with the Islamic terrorist was a move not expected. How better to destroy America?
Basil Sands not only wrote this novel but also narrated it. I found his performance to be exciting, riveting and skilled. His ability to change voices immediately was fascinating. He brought the characters to life in a way only the writer could do – his passion of his work, his knowledge of the characters – his connection to the book made it even more gripping!
This is one of those rare books where the listener cannot help but get caught up in the story. Sands gives us the connection to the everyday family and Midwest life and then throws in the one thing we are all terrified of – terrorists!
This is a must read! You won’t look at things the same way again.
Audio production of this book was excellent, there were no issues or concerns.

Basil Sands did it again. This novel was well worth a listen. The character development is bar-none. The story captures the struggle of good and evil, man vs. demon in a fantastic story-line that will keep you hooked to the end. I would recommend this book and any other work by this narrator who happens to also be the author.
I loved this book, Faithful Warrior is an action packed adrenaline rush right from the beginning. I found it intriguing that he devised a way to combine two very different careers into one man, a pastor and a marine assassin, all while making it totally life like and believable. Pastor Mike was faced with a terrifying enemy from his past as he is about to engage the men who brutally killed his wife and son in cold blood. Mike teams up with past fellow military men/friends to try and takedown the man who nearly took his life years ago by skinning him alive.
I became addicted to this book until I was finished, and then I still found myself thinking about it for weeks after. This would make for an excellent movie that my husband or any man would surely love, fighting, guns battles, and lots of explosive adrenaline action.
The narration was, as always, what I expect from Sands. He is a master at transporting you right into the action. He inevitably gets your heart pounding and head racing with his expert narration and wonderfully written books! More, more, more, I will definitely be looking forward to more of Basil Sands work.
I enjoyed Basil's characters. Very unique and real.
I liked how he portrayed detective Martin.
Similarities to Clive Cussler, with lots of military action.
