The Embattled Road

Book Review of  The Embattled Road (Lost and Found series)

Title: The Embattled Road

Series: Lost and Found

Author: J.M. Madden

Date Published: December 5th, 2012

The Blurb: 
In the harrowing prequel to The Lost and Found series, three embattled Marines must deal with their devastating physical and emotional injuries in a world that seems to have turned against them. 
When the rescue helicopter crashes into his convoy in Iraq, Marine First Sergeant Duncan Wilde struggles with the loss of men, his career and the use of his body. Things can't get much worse. Until his fiancée decides she has to move on with her life, and that of her unborn child by another man.
Sergeant Chad Lowell knew when he went to war that it would come with a price. And it did. A young Marine under his command is killed by a landmine. Chad's left with one less leg and a mountain of recriminations. That doesn't mean he wants to be a pitied by every female he comes in contact with.
Gunnery Sergeant John Palmer is furious at the hand he's been dealt. He's served his country faithfully, if not without antagonism, for many years. Now they're turning him out like a relative who has overstayed his welcome. And, since he's not even a real man anymore, maybe it is time to move on permanently. 
Can these wounded warriors use a friendship borne out of adversity to form a partnership rescuing others? And can they find real love in spite of their challenges?

My Review


This is Free on Amazon Right now!!

Wow this little novella was a beautifully emotional journey of 3 Marines injured in Iraq. As they learn to deal with their disabling injuries, they develop a friendship with each other that leads to them going into business together. I loved this little Novella. John, Chad, and Duncan have already stolen my heart. J.M. Madden grabs you, drawing you in and getting you invested in these heroes, who have given up so much for their country, and are now trying to figure out where they belong in this world, when they can no longer be Marines! There are no love interest in this book and it was still awesome. The guys all had such strong, intriguing personalities that they feel real! I think J.M. Madden really touched on the issues our soldier face when they come home from war injured or not. The struggles they face. The sacrifices they make. So touching I can't wait to read this series! I have always had a thing for Military men, and if this book is any indication I have a feeling I am going to love this series!
