Waiting for Dawn

Waiting for Dawn

by Susan May Warren

Jim Micah has two things on his mind: his regret of losing the woman he loves, Lacey Galloway, and his mission in Iraq. It is 1991 and the Gulf War is winding down, but things soon begin to heat up for Micah. When he and the men on his special operations team are attacked and taken prisoner by unknown enemies, he has to face his fears and decide who to trust. When Lacey hears Micah has gone missing, she decides to do everything she can to find him. Will she be successful? And will the two find happiness together?

This novella almost immediately jumps right into the action. I have not read a lot of novellas, save a few of those books that offer 3 or 4 short novellas in one, but this one caught my attention from the start. The novella ends kind of abruptly, in my opinion. Had I not read the author's afterword, I would have been sorely disappointed. Apparently this is supposed to be the prequel to Flee the Night, the first novel in Warren's Team Hope series. Warren states in the afterword that many of her readers had been asking for background on Micah's story, so hence the creation of Waiting for Dawn. Reading this short story made me interested in reading the rest of the Team Hope series. I will definitely read those books now. 

I would give this novella a 4.5 out of 5, simply because of my confusion at the end of the story.

Waiting for Dawn was released directly to digital edition and is available on Amazon.com and other digital retail sites.
