Samantha Moore is, to say the least, bookish. An English major of the highest order, her diet has always been Austen, Dickens, and Shakespeare. The problem is, both her prose and conversation tend to be more Elizabeth Bennet than Samantha Moore. But life for the 23-year-old orphan is about to get stranger than fiction.

Such a good story! I wasn't a huge fan of the narrator and listened in 1.5x speed, which helped it not sound like the book was being read by Siri. Highly recommend this book though.

From Brandon Webb, Navy SEAL sniper and New York Times best-selling author, comes his account of the eight friends and fellow SEALs who made the ultimate sacrifice. As a Navy SEAL, Webb rose to the top of the world's most elite sniper corps, experiencing years of punishing training and combat missions from the Persian Gulf to Afghanistan. Along the way, Webb served beside, trained, and supported men he came to know not just as fellow warriors, but as friends and, eventually, as heroes.

I loved Brandon Webb's first book "Red Circle" very much, and decided to read this one immediately after.

It's a great tribute to each of these men who gave their lives for their country, and is absolutely worth the read/listen.

My only critique is of the narration who reads in a tone that sounds very nonchalant and flippant even when reading sections telling of how someone died or the difficult events surrounding their death. It was very odd and I didn't appreciate it. However, that alone is not worth turning this book away.
