3.0 out of 5 stars All Action Demon Hunting, 15 Mar 2013
This review is from: Seal Team 666 (Seal Team 666 1) (Paperback)
I love the premise of Seal Team 666 - a crack squad of Navy Seals hand-picked to fight the forces of darkness. That's the supernatural kind of darkness, proper evil heebeegeebie stuff, demons and spirits and things that go bump in the night.

Jack Walker is still a cadet, hoping to finish the Seal training course in one piece. He's plucked out of training and thrown straight into a very unconventional mission. He has no time to process the peculiarity of it all before he finds himself face to face with a distinctly non-human adversary. But, this is not Jack's first brush with the supernatural.

I enjoyed Jack's story as it was revealed bit by bit. His traumatic childhood experience would be enough to break most people, but Jack is one of the most mentally tough characters I've read. He needs to be because the mission they are on keeps getting darker and more horrific.

What begins as an investigation into a strangely protected sweatshop develops into something much more malevolent and complex involving an ancient and powerful evil. The story opens out layer by bloody layer, with a few twists and shocks along the way. It is a gripping tale that culminates in a dramatic showdown.

I was not so enamoured with all the details about the team's weapons and gadgetry. I know this is entirely down to the fact that I have absolutely no idea about different types of guns, or parachutes, or night vision goggles. I really did like the military structure, team dynamics and bonding, but the kit was less important for me. I'm certain that for lots of people these details would really enhance the story though.

Overall, I thought Seal Team 666 was a good read. It's fun, in a gory kind of way, and I would be tempted to read more about Jack & company.
