"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:
SEAL Team 666 by Weston Ochse
SEAL Team Six meets Stephen King in Weston Ochse's novel about an elite group of soldiers who protect the U.S. from supernatural threats
Halfway through SEAL training, Cadet Jack Walker, still green but showing incredible promise, is whisked away to join four SEALs—and their dog—for a special ops mission. Walker soon finds himself in a whirlwind of otherworldly creatures and events as he finds out the true nature of this "special ops" team: SEAL Team 666. Battling demons, possessed humans, mass-murdering cults, and evil in its most dark and ancient form, SEAL Team 666 has their work cut out for them. And it's not long before they realize that the threat isn't just directed against the U.S.—an ancient and deadly cult has bigger plans, and Walker is at the center of a supernatural conflict with the entire world at stake. (Dec 1, 2012)
Okay, so they had me at "SEAL Team Six meets Stephen King" but this still sounds like a fun read. If he can pull it off, Ochse just may have the start of a favourite new series here.
