Publisher's Summary

Sergeant Warren Parish is a dangerous man - in more ways than his military training would explain. Nowhere in the world is this clearer than war-torn Iraq, where his “special skill set” is crucial on more than one deadly occasion. 

When a new enemy arises out of the ashes of southern Baghdad, Warren’s unit must rely on the help of an unlikely ally: private military contractors from Claymore Worldwide Security. 

With them is a woman. Skilled. Sexy. And absolutely lethal. It doesn’t take long for Warren to realize her set of superpowers might even rival his own. But discovering her truth will have to wait. First, they must make it back from their mission alive. 

Sergeant Warren Parish is one of the leading men in The Soul Summoner Series. Chronologically, this novella happens before the series begins, but it is a standalone.

Are you Team Warren?

Elicia Hyder does it once again! I love everything about The Soul Summoner series.
In this companion book, we get a little background on Warren. In my opinion, this should not be read first, even though it is his background. I really enjoyed knowing him from the series before reading this. I loved being able to think back about different things he was thinking or saying and saying to myself, "oh yea, I remember xyz".
It was cool to see Enzo and Fury introduced as well.
Anytime I read any book from this series, it makes me want to go back and read the entire thing again.
If you haven't started this series you really need to. PRONTO!
Thank you, Elicia Hyder, for another Soul Summoner (companion) masterpiece!

This is my first book by Elicia Hyder and I enjoyed the action and camaraderie between the characters. Warren appears to be a very complex and complicated man. This very short introduction to him leads me wanting more. Jesse LaPierre was great as the narrator and really brought the story to life for me. I was pleasantly surprised and look forward to more of this storyline.

Gritty,

Well written with an excellent Narration by Jesse La Pierre. He has the gravelly voice that sounds like a mercenary that has been there and survived it all.
I have enjoyed all of the Elicia Hyder books and have enjoyed seeing her writing skills improve with each outing

Excellent addition to the series.

Gives some of Warren's backstory. It explains how Warren and Fury met. If you like Elicia Hyder and the Soul Summoner series, you will want to read this book.

.Humor, snark and a good story

Warren’s story was a perfect peak at the man who was a part of the puzzle before he even knew it. I loved the little backfiller and getting to know Warren, his team, and even Claymore team a bit more. The story was just long enough to give us a solid grounding without leaving us wanting for too much more. Ok, I’ll always want more. Jesse LaPierre was an absolute pleasure to listen to as Warren. I’ll be looking forward to more stories from both the author and narrator.

Great story... too short!

I’ve loved the Soul Summoner series, and this did not disappoint. The Mercenary was filled with depth and details that really brought Warren, and Fury, to life. Action and humor throughout. I couldn’t put it down... listened to the whole book in one sitting. I really wish it was longer... maybe a few missions during this period in his life. Excellent part of the series!

Go Team Warren!

I loved getting the back story on Warren. Very good except too short. LOL Tells how Fury came into the story too. Can't wait for the next in this series!!

excellent narration, loved more of Warren

I listened to the audio version of this and I have to say, the narrator was very Warren, with a deep, sexy voice I could listen to all day.

I really enjoyed this little novella, a prequel of sorts, set in the time when Warren was in the military and before he knew exactly what he was. This introduces Claymore Worldwide Security and it was intriguing. I hope there will be a follow up with the mysterious Fury and her boss.
Let's blow s@#t up!! Roger that 😁

The Mercenary

This is the first book that I have read in this series but I will definitely be going back to book 1. This book is amazing! For such a short book you have so much to learn and feel that it has left me begging for more. I hope there is a lot more of this in the future.
