My Thoughts: When I heard about this book, I just could not resist – combining two of my favorite genres of military science-fiction and urban fantasy? Irresistible!

The only real problem I had with the story was the head-hopping. It was suppo

Jack Walker’s dream was to be a Navy SEAL. He was going to make it through BUD/S training, no matter how much it punished his body. Just four more weeks. But he’s pulled out of training early, and drafted into an ultra-secret, elite SEAL team, one that has an unusual team number. This team fights threats against the free world that are supernatural in origin. And Jack is specially equipped to be a member. For the dark scars of his youth mark him with a special ability to sense evil.

I'm putting this on my Urban Fantasy shelf as it is contemporary and actually does place a lot of the action in cities.

Pretty good book. From the title I wondered if it was going to be more of a tongue in cheek read or not. It's not, the book is played straight. Our "hero" is within 4 weeks of graduating and becoming a SEAL. He's suddenly pulled out of training...and graduated early.

The premise of this book is that there exists a specific SEAL Team that deals explicitly with "supernatural" occu

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 special force soldiers fight against Al Qeada terrorists or enemy nations trying to kill Americans, Weston Ochse successfully, at times, melds the military thriller genre with the supernatura

SEAL cadet Jack Walker is almost done with his training when he's taken away to join a top secret group, consisting of four others and one dog. While he feels guilty about gaining SEAL status without completing his course, Walker earns his stripes quickly enough as his elite team encounter all types of supernatural creatures and situations. Everyone in the group has a special skill, but Walker's is most unique: he's able to tell when something other-wordly is near, and Ochse slowly develops why ...more

Evil exists... I once asked the Director of the Exorcist what the Catholic Church thought of his film. He said they loved it. Why, because it made the point that evil exists. Weston Ochse acknowledges that evil does indeed exist, and that it needs to be put down with shotguns, sniper rifles and guts. Lots of guts. This Military SciFi Thriller hands out action like cooked off grenades, tense and urgent. The writing is top notch and the accuracy regarding tactics, weapons and the military is eyes ...more

Take some Richard Marcinko patented Seal Team military mayhem.
Mix in a healthy dose of Kolchak, the Nightstalker.
Throw in some high grade nastiness, Asian style.
And a dash of flat out weird.
Shake well, and prepare to have your ass kicked and your name taken.

one of the cover blurbs on SEAL TEAM 666 says it's like The X-files written by Tom Clancy. I couldn't say. I don't read Clancy. What I can say is it's a crackerjack novel that kept me racing through the pages. The author can write a damn good thriller.

SEAL TEAM 666 has a history that goes back farther the beginnings of our country. A specialized group that's a bit different from the usual SEAL unit. Always five men and a dog, the animal always named after a President(the one before the formation

Okay, this one was a lot of fun, pretty much exactly what I was in the mood for. The author understands the military and it shows. Not surprising considering his background. This is a fast paced, fun read with tons of excitement and adventure. The characters are likeable and believable, although I'm not terribly certain if I liked the protagonist or not, but he always acted in a realistic manner. In fact, as the new guy on the team, Jack Walker kind of screwed up a lot, which was a fun change of ...more

I won this book a while ago as an ARC from Goodreads and found it to be just average. I did like the concept of the novel (marines fighting demons in faraway countries). My problem was that the author of the book (no offense, I hope) made some dumb decisions like describing the guns used during the battles. I know nothing of guns and I wonder if this book was written specifically for marines or soldiers. This book could have been better if it weren't so boring.
Earl Parrish
I tight, action-packed page-turner (literally -- I started it in the afternoon and finished before going to bed, late, that night!). Weston is spot on with his action sequences, makes military lingo accessible and has a devious imagination for creating scenes of supernatural horror. I won't spoil it for everyone, but Weston is NOT gentle to his characters! A must-read for those that like military action and/or contemporary horror.
Geoff
Fantastic blend of military action and supernatural thriller. Loved it. It was obviously well-researched, and the pacing/style/narrative is pretty-much flawless.
Winner!
Calisto
A solid 3.5 stars. It's exactly what the author blurb promises: If X-Files was written by Tom Clancy. In this case, I would actually say it's more like (the early and good) Keith Douglass of the Seal Team Seven and Carrier series.

I'm giving 4 stars for the concept. It's all kinds of awesome and hit my 'military porn' and supernatural buttons. There are some rough edges that need some polishing in terms of writing and storytelling. I particularly did not like the flashbacks that occurred because

REVIEWED: SEAL Team 666
WRITTEN BY: Weston Ochse
PUBLISHED: November, 2012

This is the second full-length Ochse novel I’ve read (after SCARECROW GODS) and thus also the second full-length Ochse novel that I’ve thoroughly enjoyed. Each book is written in a distinctive voice, but SEAL TEAM 666 may be the more appealing to me only because of the subject matter: American SEAL Team special operations that fight against the country’s “Supernatural Enemies.” That’s right... good ol’ American weaponry, fi

This is one of those books where I liked the idea of the story much better than the actual story. SEAL Team 666 is a normal Navy SEAL team specializing in battle with the supernatural (mostly demons and such). There is plenty of action and military hoopla throughout the book, which I usually enjoy. I just wasn't intrigued enough by the storyline to continually want to know more. I also found there to be too much detail describing all the weaponry, and not enough detail in other areas, such as ch ...more
Vanessa Torres
I LOVE THIS BOOK! Packed with action from beginning to end, it will leave you wanting more. The story was brilliantly told, easy to follow, and extremly creative. I love how all the supernatural and evil creations mesh perfectly with the Army talk and protocol. Reccomend this book to absolutley everyone who has a thing for evil, action, and great books. My brother is getting shipped out to the army in a few weeks and I plan to give him this book as a gift. I know he will truly enjoy it. Perfecti ...more

Won this advance reading copy in a goodreads giveaway.
This is my first Weston Ochse read and it will not be my last. SEAL team 666 flies out the gate and never lets up, the team's missions kept me reading through the night, waiting to see what kind of bad guys they would confront. I was worried that the technical military jargon and abbreviations would slow me down but the author does a smooth job of informing the reader early on. The characters are fully developed and the action scenes are wel

While the idea for the book sounds good, the execution is not so good. Seal Team 666 is a super secret government group who battles with various types of demons & other evil creatures. There is hardly any background information on the group. All we take from it is that it has been around before America was the United States. Every group has had a special dog. The author tells virtually nothing about these Seal Team 666 dogs. What makes them so special? What abilities do they have or are they ...more

Reading the flyleaf and various reviews of the Seal Team 666 series I was intrigued. I was a little unsure though if I would struggle to follow the military terminology that would be a sure part of the tale. I shouldn’t have worried. Once I started reading it was difficult to stop. I mean how many books can bring back the horrors found in mythology and fables of long ago.

Jack Walker finds himself yanked from his training with only four weeks to ago. He is going to become a part of an elite team

This Advance Reading Copy was a GoodReads giveaway.

A horror story not quite like any I have read in the past. As advertised, a mash up of X-files and Clancy. A bit
Iight on the Clancy portion, but a nicely done mix. Any more techno speak would have slowed down the pace too much. This elite SEAL team is ready to take on any ancient evil. I will have to read more from Weston Ochse. (And I just have to get myself a dog like Hoover.)
Scottsdale Public Library
SEAL TEAM 666 is essentially Zero Dark Thirty meets the CW’s Supernatural. Weston Ochse has combined naval special operations with urban fantasy to produce an interesting genre. SEAL TEAM 666 has enough military action and supernatural suspense to hold one’s attention. SEAL TEAM 666 is therefore recommended to readers who enjoy, F. Paul Wilson’s, "Repairman Jack" series. – Leslie G.
Wendy Bocock
Liked premise, liked characters. Hope there are more to follow. Am looking forward to more character development, especially of secondary characters. Jack is like-able and easy to follow. In my opinion, more character development, and less military specifics (gun specs., etc.), would make it a much better book. Even so, it reads like a solid action movie.
Zack
I'm not a fan of the paranormal genre but at a friend's insistence, I read it.

It was a nice surprise. A very well done military thriller with believable bad guys that happened to be vampires, demons, diabolical megalomaniacs or IRS agents. Fast paced and funny with the requisite love interests and sentimental fluff.

Quite enjoyable, really.
Rick Fisher
This was a thoroughly enjoyable piece of supernatural fiction with a touch of seal team realness.
Mr Ochse kept the story moving at a great pace, with plenty of action interspersed with a terrific backstory on the main character, Jack Walker.
This will def make a remarkable series. I hope there is more to come.
Robert
Not bad actually; I was pleasantly surprised at the amount of character development and depth of story. There could definitely be spin-off books from this title. I may investigate other titles by this author.
Marc Wiener
This book was completely addictive! A killer blend of military action and horror that has lead me to read 2 more books by Weston Ochse so far!
James
Perfect page turner for a winter day. Fast paced, high adrenaline, ass kicking good time. The Seal Team 666 series will not be one to miss!
Stephen
This book deals with a special Seal Team that deals with the paranormal. It opens with a reimagining of the Osama Bin Laden raid, only this time Bin Laden is a supernatural. It is well written and fun. Unfortunately the author falls into the trap of trying to make a Muslim a good guy. A character is introduced who is a SEAL, new member of the team, and a devout Muslim, just "Americanized." I found it unbelievable. I just can't rationalize the hard drinking, hard partying, SEAL with the true beli ...more
Pia Göös
Do you enjoy military stories? Does supernatural twist make your skin crawl in a good way? Then do not hesitate to grab this book, because it contains both.

Highly entertaining, but simultaneously very precise in facts and rich in military descriptions. Because no one wants to know what color the gun was, but everyone wants to know what are the differences between a Stoner and an M16 bolt mechanics. (Also, you should already know that Stoner means this http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stoner_63 )


So,

“The fact is that Superman should be fat. He should be a lard-assed superhero with flabby arms, a beer gut, and soft muscles.
...when Superman bench-presses a Cadillac, he doesn't even break a sweat. It's like picking up a bag of feathers. Would Batman be buff if he bench-pressed feathers? Because that's essentially what Superman does every day.”
