In this age of supernatural and paranormal fiction, there are scores of lone gunmen, wizards and warriors fighting against the forces of evil. At the same time, the bookstores are full of modern thriller with special op agents fighting against evil terrorists intent on mass bloodshed.
Not content with having his special force soldiers fight against Al Qeada terrorists , Weston Ochse successfully melds the military thriller genre with the supernatural and horror in "SEAL Team 666" http://www.amazon.com/SEAL-Team-666-A-Novel/dp/1250007356/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1358355710&sr=8-1&keywords=seal+team+666, his entertaining special ops - demon slaying novel.
Jack Walker, a trainee 4 weeks from graduation as a navy SEAL, the roughest badasses in the American military, is yanked from his class and added to an unusual 5 man and one dog team. SEAL Team 666, composed of Holmes, the taciturn leader, Laws, a cerebral soldier with an eidetic memory for sounds, Ruiz, Hoover, the dog, and one other SEAL are America's line of defense against supernatural monsters. SEAL Team 666 is only the latest incarnation of these special forces, who appear to have been defending America's shores since before America revolted against England.
Walker is put on the team because of his unique skills. While he is an accomplished sniper and killer, its his other oddities that make him a candidate for the team. He is sensitive to demons and their artifacts. It seems that when Walker was 9 his father, a black marketer screwed some children out of penicillin for a buck in the Far East. The children all died, and a witch doctor cursed the Walker family - Jack Walker became inhabited by a grave demon, who took over his young body. The demon made him attack others and kill. His vivid nightmares of his time inhabited by the demon show how the demons work to influence people to kill and commit evil acts. Walker's father was somehow able to do an exorcism on his son, who never stopped fighting the demon's control.
The novel is a series of missions with the SEAL Team 666 trying to kill demons and other supernatural monsters. Ochse, who has a military background, obviously knows the SEAL Team's weapons and culture. Weapons are described simply and effectively. More, if a SEAL team member is killed, we see how the other soldiers remember their fallen colleague. Although about supernatural monster killing, the novel rings with verisimilitude.
Now a Burmese rebel has found an artifact linked to a long living demon, who longs to rule and kill humankind. The rebel also wants to take over his country so they form an unholy alliance. But the rebel does not trust the demon, so he has his henchmen force slave women to craft a suit of human skin to keep the demon from totally taking over the rebel's mind. But the demon influences the rebel and this unholy team engages in all manner of human destruction and death. The typical scenes of woman being killed and violated in unspeakable ways are present.
SEAL Team 666 is sent out on several missions and fights monsters employed by the demon. The firefights are fierce, and the body count is impressive. The blood and guts of a good military thriller are obvious.
At the end there is a confrontation between the remnants of SEAL Team 666 against the demon/human combo as Walker tries to save his colleagues from being human sacrifices by finally being able to use his unique demon skills to find the demon artifact and separate it from the demon/human host so the host can be killed.
Ochse seems to have found a niche in the gory world of demon killing with his SEAL Team 666. His website indicates that he has already penned a sequel in this series, which we can expect soon.
If you like killing demons with military precision, this is definitely a book for you
