KIRKUS REVIEW

A Navy SEAL team defends Britain against supernatural creatures.  

Retired Army intelligence officer Ochse (Age of Blood, 2013, etc.) introduces the third book about his fictitious SEAL Team 666, a military unit that specializes in doing battle with the supernatural. When Navy SEAL Jack Walker’s fiancee is killed during a mysterious druid ritual at Stonehenge, the commando hops over the pond to find answers and vengeance in England. The few remaining members of Section 9—Britain's counterpart to SEAL team 666—aid Walker’s quest for answers by connecting him with a witch who serves as a conduit to the dark demons on the other side of the natural world. However, threats become severe with the appearance of homunculi, or what Walker calls “Freddy Krueger-Stretch Armstrong serial-killing fucking mini-golems,” and half human–half beast dogs that are inhabited by the souls of the recently deceased. When the American Seal team unites with their cohorts in Britain, these elite warriors realize that the secret societies of the Red Grove and the Bohemian Grove are behind an elaborate plot, which includes restoring ancient pagan Christmas rituals. The ultimate goal of these ceremonies, many of which revolve around sexual deviance, is to bring back the mythical King Arthur with the intention that he'll return Britain to its former glory. Enter enigmatic spirits who inhabit the bodies of a wide array of human hosts, and this makes for an intense showdown that will decide the future of Britain.

With minimal character development, this is a fast-paced adventure that straddles the worlds of special operations and the paranormal.
