Renegade (Called to Serve) by Mel Odom A REVIEW


Having grown up in the foster system, Private Pike Morgan’s rough exterior and problem with authority earn him few friends among his fellow Marines. When he’s not on missions for the Marine Reserve, Pike’s rebellious attitude and eagerness for vigilante justice have the local police regularly at his doorstep. Struggling to set down roots, and nervous of his desire to, Pike’s eager to answer the military’s call for another deployment.

On a peacekeeping mission to Afghanistan, Pike and his squad soon find themselves entrenched in a heated war zone. After an American journalist is kidnapped by known terrorist Zalmai Yaqub, the whereabouts of this al Qaeda leader become a top priority for the American military. But when Yaqub flees to Pakistan, will anyone aid Pike in his hunt, or will this strong Marine find himself without an ally?

  Renegade by mel Odom is book two in the series Called to Serve. I didn’t get to read book one and would have liked to. It really would have made the reading experience richer.
  I enjoyed Renegade and how it showed that war is not a game or something that is just part of life. War is really about death and evil, but sometimes you have to fight to rid the world of evil.
  If you don’t like war stories or hear about a lot of death then you shouldn’t read this book. I myself usually don’t read about wars, but this one was unique. It shows how some people are driven by their past and how life isn’t always neat and orderly.
 Renegade is a modern day war story that is really accurate.
  I recommend this book for all that love to read about war and things that happen. It is quite an interesting book.

Thanks to Tyndale House Publishers for providing this book for review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255
