SEAL Team Six meets Stephen King in this novel about an elite group of soldiers who protect the United States from supernatural threats.
Halfway through SEAL training, Cadet Jack Walker, still green but showing incredible promise, is whisked away to join four SEALs and their dog for a special-ops mission. Walker soon finds himself in a whirlwind of otherworldly creatures and events as he discovers the true nature of SEAL Team 666. Battling demons, possessed humans, mass-murdering cults, and evil in its darkest and most and ancient form, the members of SEAL Team 666 have their work cut out for them. And it’s not long before they realize that the threat isn’t directed against the US alone - an ancient and deadly cult has far bigger plans, and Walker is at the center of a supernatural conflict in which the entire world is at stake.

The concept is great, the execution is just good. I was hoping for more but I would still recommend this for anyone looking for some fun escapist reading. Narration was very well done.
It would rank somewhere in the middle of the pack.
First one I have listened to.
When it discussed how SOF forces think. It is quite close to the truth.
There is always a more secret team.
The story and characters are a bit too self rightgeous and self involved.
He could realize that we could respect the characters, what they do and what they represent without hitting us over the head with it over and over and over again. Secondarily, I wish some of these authors who write in this genre who easily embrace the existence and power of evil, ignore the possibility of good having some power. Lastly he could learn that the tired stereotypes of people ethnicity.
Excellent voice and cadence. It is the only thing that allow me to finish the book.
Disappointment. It is a good premise and had promise, but it just went to the typical place instead of taking it somewhere new and fresh.
Don't know if this will be a series or not, but it won't be for me.
This was a well written, refreshingly different monster book. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
It was really a bit of a Zero Dark Thirty / Seal Team Six (the movies) goes supernatural. Which was good because Lord knows Zero Dark Thirty could have used the help!
He did a fine job. As long as he isn't terrible, that's all I ask.
I did chuckle here and there, but nothing extreme.
A fun listen worth the time and credit, especially if you are looking for something different.
