Collateral Damage is the premier book in the Danger Never Sleeps series by Lynette Eason. Be prepared to jump right into the action and not want to quit until the end. Eason spins a tale of danger and the unknown while covering common themes found in tales of soldiers and war.
The main characters are likeable and talented. As one might expect, they each come with issues of their own and then they have the common challenge that has brought them together. In this particular story, their challenges did not keep them from moving forward. It is refreshing to have examples of people who were learning to overcome rather than being paralyzed by struggles.
Eason writes an interesting story in which she introduces all sort of people. Each person has his or her own feel and does not feel like a slightly altered carbon copy. This fast-paced, romantic, Christian fiction book allows readers to contemplate various ethical situations and decide how they would react.
