Editorial Reviews


"With so many stories about Navy SEALs out there, you might think there couldn't be anything new to add to the subgenre, but McCallan will prove you wrong. Full of suspense with some paranormal elements too, her first entry in the Forged series is a pulse-pounding adventure." —RT Book Reviews, 4 stars (HOT)

"If you like your romance served with a side of military lingo, weapons, tactics, nonstop action and smokin' hot SEALs, Forged in Fire is for you. This book is an edge-of-your-seat thrill ride. McCallan's writing is terrific. The heat between Beth Brown and Zane Winters ignites the first time they meet and grows throughout the book. Strong secondary characters (perfect for several sequels) and a full panoply of bad guys, from thugs to mysterious puppet masters, make it hard to tell where the next bullet, knife or punch is coming from. On the strength of the conflict, action and romance, I'd recommend this book in a heartbeat." — Willa, Smart Bitches Trashy Books

About the Author

Trish McCallan was born in Eugene, Oregon, and grew up in Washington State, where she began crafting stories at an early age. Her first books were illustrated in crayon, bound with red yarn, and sold for a nickel at her lemonade stand. Trish grew up to earn a bachelor’s degree in English literature with a concentration in creative writing from Western Washington University, taking jobs as a bookkeeper and human-resource specialist before finally quitting her day job to write full time. Forged in Fire came about after a marathon reading session, and a bottle of Nyquil that sparked a vivid dream. She lives today in eastern Washington.

Zane Winters and his SEAL teammates are schedule for a flight to Hawaii to attend a friends wedding, unaware that their flight is going to be highjacked.

Beth Brown has never believed in psychic abilities but her beliefs are put into question when she comes face to face with the man she watched die aboard the flight the night before in her dream.
Without any proof to back them up, Beth and the SEAL team must find a way to stop the flight and save the lives of those aboard.

Trish originally posted a first teaser scene prior to publishing on a site I'm part of. I was hooked from that first scene. I couldn't wait to get my hands on the full thing and find out if it lived up to the first pages and boy did it. I mostly read Young Adult because I love it and also because I write in that genre but I love any story as long as it's good.

I couldn't put the book down! The tension starts in that very first scene and doesn't let up. The action is awesome and makes one wonder if maybe Trish is hiding some navy SEAL training of her own. The romance is just the perfect amount to make you really care for the characters without getting in the way of the action or being overly mushy. Don't get me wrong. I love a good romance. Trish delivers the perfect balance of action, suspense and romance with Forged In Fire. I can't wait for the next one in the series!

*Just an FYI if you didn't get from the fact that this book begins with a dream of a hijacking that ends the life of all the passengers, there is brutality in this book, including rape that, though isn't described in detail, a loved ones response to it is. The response is handle incredibly well and almost too true to life. If your squeamish about violence consider yourself warned.

This book was so irritating that I felt compelled to post a review to help others avoid being suckered by all the other five-star reviews. To each his own I guess, but you should know that this book contains very little romance, one stupid sex scene where afterwards the "heroine" chews out the hero for not using a condom (can you say mood-breaker?), lots of violence, and an agonizing gang rape. Another reviewer pointed out how little gets resolved in this book and I have to agree. The book literally ends where the seal team is trying to decide how to deal with all the inter-agency politics and the bad guys. Also, one of their team mates is in the hospital fighting for his life and you never hear if he makes it or not. I will never read another book by this author again.

The plot was proably the best part of this book. I really enjoyed the basis of the story and military life, etc. but i don't think this one is for me. Love our military and cannot say enough good things about them but some of the comments made seemed so staged and out of place even for military that it was just..well odd. Beth made me want to smack her upside the head at times and tell her to grow up or something similar. her character seems like ther was such potential to make a great relationship with Zane; leaving it as some Some typo's in the e-book were a bit much and slowed down the reading experience. Great pace to the story, and it flowed very well.

My biggest issue is the ending. All i can say is REALLY?!?!? I swear i thought i got screwed and did not get the entire book. Sure, this is the beginning of a series but don't you think the book should actually have SOME type of concusion? It's like watching a movie or TV show, and the power went out with 10 min left of the show. Boom, that's it, you are done. Left me thinking WTF?

Only 3 stars becuase it was a decent story, fairly good set up and great pace and suspense at times. Could be less for the tragic ending and a few other things, however i thnk some of that is my personal prefernce so i did not reduce it to 1 or 2 stars.

*I think this whole review maybe a spoiler* The premise here is new and strong. I liked the idea of a woman having a premonition via a dream of a disaster and needing to find support to thwart it. Hello, support in the form of a hot Navy Seal? - Heck Yeah. You have yourself the start to a heck of a book. But after that - it went way way way south. It kind of wants to be a spy/crime novel. Kind of wants to be Dragon Tatoo in the way brutalization of women can be written but then part of bigger whole. It kind of self-admittedly wants to be BDB in the "mine"ing...but it falls so so short on all fronts. Be a romance and focus on the hero and heroine. Be a suspense romance and have them in it together. But including BRUTAL GANG RAPES OF FEMALE CHARACTERS VITAL TO THE PLOT...immediately capitulates you out of the romance genre. This is now a creepy, cringe-worthy story. And the romance is weak and not well drawn. The author has a lot of promise as the story sings along. But please do us all a favor and find a genre and your own voice. I simply cannot recommend this one.

I can't believe that the 279 people who wrote four star reviews (to date) read the same book I did. The plot had great promise, but the story telling needs help. The characters who do not have ESP are able to figure out what's going on better than those who have the gift. So many times I stopped and thought, WHAT? How did he jump to that conclusion based on what I've read here? Completely unbelievable!

I read in complete horror when an airport gate full of people are in danger and the hero and heroine spend what precious little time is left arguing over their as of yet non-existent relationship instead of immediately exchanging the information necessary to save them.

I gave up on this book one-quarter of the way through. I hope this author obtains the services of a good editor, someone who will point out the deficiencies in plot and writing style and help her take her good ideas and form them into an engaging and believable plot.
