From the Back Cover
Kidnapped by rebels while serving as a humanitarian aid worker in Chechnya, Signe Kincaid has spent the past decade secreting out valuable information about Russian assets in the US to her CIA handler. Fearing for her daughter after being discovered as an operative, Signe sends her to former Navy SEAL Hamilton Jones for safekeeping. Signe is ready to give her life for her country, and she can hardly expect Ham to rescue her after breaking his heart over and over.
Hamilton Jones has never forgotten the only woman he loved--and he can't believe after all these years she's shown up alive. But can he forgive her for her secrets? And, when Ham discovers the reason Signe has kept her distance, he must choose between love for her and love for the nation he has vowed to protect.
Will he save the many? Or the few? And what is the price of valor?

The plot of this novel centers around Former Navy SEAL Hamilton Jones and whether or not the love of his life is dead. Her name is Signe Kincaid. To say they had a complicated relationship would be the understatement of all time! They started out as best friends when they were just kids. Each of them found themselves in difficult living situations because of their dysfunctional families. Each of them have ended up serving the government — him as an aforementioned Navy SEAL and unbeknownst to him, she was working undercover for the CIA. She had very mysteriously disappeared from his life and while most everyone thought she was dead, he felt deep in his soul that she was alive and needing to be rescued. The biggest clue to her survival had been when they found a ten year old girl that had survived a horrific boat explosion. She had information on her stating that she was Navy SEAL Hamilton Jones’ daughter. Their seemed to be no evidence of Signe’s death so Ham is haunted with tracking her down.
Signe was captured by rebels while serving in the Ukraine. She had been feeding Russian intel to her CIA handler. She feared for her daughter’s life so she devised a plan to get her safely to Ham. Now Signe is in the most danger she has ever been in her life! Even the bravest man she knows cannot save her now! Ham cannot shake the feeling that Signe is still alive somewhere. Here is where Warren takes readers on a Mission with Ham’s highly trained Team of Global Rescuers. They are involved in true spy games and no one knows who can be trusted. One piece of the U.S. Government’s most important data is at stake and National Security is at stake. The battle for this information is intense and epic. Warren concludes this Series with quite the BANG!
I was provided a complimentary copy of this novel by Revell & NetGalley. The opinions expressed here are completely my own and without influence.
Talk about going out with a bang! Susan May Warren has, once again, outdone herself. I'm not what you'd call a thriller junkie, or a fan of action-driven spy and military stories--but if Susan May Warren writes them, gimme! Especially after this one, which was definitely the best in the Global Search and Rescue series.
This is when I would normally talk about the individual characters, the relationships, and so on--and all of that is great. But for perhaps the first time, the plot is what kept my pages turning and made me give this book a perfect rating. The plot is easily Susie's best-crafted, and kept me not only guessing, but racing through the book.
The plot of The Price of Valor takes risks I have never seen a Christian fiction book take. Maybe any book, but particularly a Christian one. Without spoiling anything, I never knew where Signe and Ham's relationship was going to go, or if it could survive. More than once, I said to myself, "There is no way in Heaven, on Earth, or under the earth, they can fix this." Throw in the red herrings and the doubts about Signe's story, and that element just got stickier. Yet, Susie handled it so well, every piece made sense. She wrote Signe as so relatable, determined, and vulnerable, that I never once thought she was a terrorist. As for Ham...yes, our swoon-worthy hero is back!
But before I get to the characters and other threads, I've got to brag on the plot a little bit more. First, The Price of Valor is easily the scariest Susan May Warren book I've read--and I've read 90% of her stuff. That plunge in the ancient lift, that toxic volcano cloud...I had an adrenaline rush right there in the safety of my bed. I never felt Ham and the rest of the team were unbelievable in their skills and stunts, but they did have me on the edge of my seat often. Couple that with the high-stakes relationships and--just how did I sleep, again?
Speaking of the relationships and characters, yes, gotta brag on them. Signe and Ham's relationship is possibly my favorite of the series (although Aria and Jake were amazing, so I'm unsure). I loved how Ham and Signe had known each other since they were kids, had such a rich history, and rescued each other in equal measure, physically, mentally, and spiritually. I especially applaud Susie for putting a twist on an old trope, giving the hero and not the heroine the Cinderella circumstances. With anybody but Ham, it wouldn't work, but he's manly enough that his vulnerabilities come across as human, not pathetic.
Additionally, I loved the scenes with Signe, Ham, and Aggie as a family, and the scenes in Deep Haven, brief though they were. I rooted for this family to make it, to find "normal," but the reason I did was because so much of their lives weren't "normal." More than any other book, Susan May Warren used this one to show that not everything can always be tied up in a pretty bow. The "American Dream" is a lot more complicated than we think, and sometimes it's not possible. But God...
Ah, yes, God. Yup, the spiritual threads are spot on, too. Valor's spirituality is both subtle and organic, and straight to the point. In a way, it's not subtle at all; characters talk openly about God, their faith, and refreshingly, the way faith intermingles with their doubts and past mistakes. But the spiritual thread is also organic because most of it simply exists in how the characters live their lives. They run more often than not, but God chases them, and they find nothing but His open arms when they finally trust. This was especially great for Signe because of her background and her complex choices, but I loved seeing everyone find God's love.
In short, if you haven't read this yet, grab a copy ASAP (although you might want to savor, as I did; I waited more than a week after the release date because I didn't want it to end). This is, again, Susie's best yet. I don't know how or if she'll top this--but I'm sure sticking around to find out.
The Price of Valor shares the message of forgiveness and the steadfastness of God's promises, as well as the hope for new beginnings. Excellent storytelling with a strong plot, including heroes and heroines, come together in a riveting suspense worthy of 5 stars!
