This author seriously needs to have an editor take a whack at the grammar in this book. While I enjoyed the story and characters, and found it a real page turner, the story seemed to be one long explosion. There was little in the way of build up to the excitement. It was running at top speed from page one. Not necessarily a bad thing. It did keep me turning the page despite the impossible feats the characters perform. Eventually I spent more time saying, "Seriously?" than enjoying the story. What is it they say about suspending disbelief? Yeah, kind of lost this fairly early in the story.

That being said, I did enjoy the story and kept reading to the very end.

The biggest complaint I have with the books is the fact that not a page went by that I did not have to stop reading and mentally edit the sentence structure in order for the story to make sense to me. There were occasional spelling errors, though they were few and far between. But having a character with a doctorate say, "All's we have to do is . . ." is not only distracting, but laughable. "All's?" Seriously? And having all the characters use that colloquialism (and others) shows some difficulty in maintaining characters' distinct personalities, education and life experience through their dialogue. Sometimes any character can be visualized as saying any portion of the conversations. Lastly, I understand the concept of keeping sentences short to move the story along faster, but they at least need to be sentences for the most part. The occasional phrase standing alone can be a great narrative tool, but having complete sentences chopped up into short phrases is distracting and irritating to the reader. At least it was to me.

The writing style of the author is decent, which is why I gave this a two star rating, but I can't take the writing seriously. There are so many unbelievable and unrealistic descriptions of what is happening, it is clear the author is mixing fantasy with reality here.

As a couple of examples, she (the author) describes the bad guys using percussive grenades, but she also includes a large heat blast from these that starts several trees on fire--she added incendiary features to percussive, but okay whatever. She describes a jeep revving an engine and then flying up and over the top of a Mayan step pyramid, and then they all drive off in the jeep, escaping the bad guys. Seriously? The jeep isn't going to get to the top, much less fly over the top, and far much less able to still drive away afterwards. It was extremely painful reading a section about them scaling an 8 foot wall. They could probably nearly reach the top with their hands while just standing on the ground, but she describes this long drawn out, difficult process for these men to scale the wall. After a lot of effort and work, one had made it up four feet and had four feet still to go, and took forever to do it. How?!? Another one was having difficulty climbing, so another guy, after having climbed up a ways moved over directly beneath the struggling one to help him climb higher. WHAT? She wrote as if they were scaling a 50 foot wall rather than an 8 foot wall. So much of what is described skews so far from reality that it is very difficult to read and/or take seriously. Maybe this writing should be in the humor category. As to the controversial stuff other reviewers have mentioned, I haven't gotten that far into the series and I don't think I will--I'm off to read something else now.

This is the first time I bothered to review a book. It is completely unworthy of your time. It takes Christ, Judas, The Virgin Mary and other people central to Christianity and puts them in a soap opera. I kept waiting for it to get better but had to quit.

The so called action scenes were preposterous. Always being saved by some inorganic surprise. It is all Deus ex machina. AND the thing needs a proofreader, desperately. I got it for free and paid too much.

Oh yeah, these black ops non-coms are charmed to the max, but hey, that makes it all the more fun. These resourceful characters slide, roll, fall, rocket or get dragged by their fingernails from cliffhanger to cliffhanger but their wit, humor and audacity make credibility a non-issue. The synergy of talents and personality make it all work...somehow. The Betrayed Series is strictly for those seeking an armchair adventure where you can root for the underdogs and bust a gut laughing. Brava!

I'm sorry to be so critical, it's not a badly written book. But, the situations are really beyond credibility! You really can't fly a helicopter below the canopy of a tropical forest, nor bank itr on its side and expect it to stay airborn. Also the miraculous saves of the 'Team' always just in time, time after time, trashing of national landmarks, etc., etc.!! It's just too much! More like the Saturday matinees back in the day! Better luck next time!!

Second round of plowing through this author's product. Errata too frequent to itemize.. Direly in need of an editor. I can't believe this saw an even cursory edit. Imagination ( and maybe research, it's hard to tell with this author's imagination) is top notch. Almost worth the grammar and homonym mistakes (i.e. heir for hair)
