I’m still trying to catch up on reviews, but I couldn’t let today go by without drawing attention to this book. When I started reading the Shadow Ops series by Myke Cole,I had my doubts. It came highly recommended, but it didn’t seem like my thing. Military fantasy?
Then I read the first couple, and I’ll be schoockered. I didn’t have a chance to think, “Gee, is this for me?” The characters and plot line drew me in completely. So, check out the third and final Shadow Ops book, BREACH ZONE:
The Great Reawakening did not come quietly. Across the country and in every nation, people began “coming up Latent,” developing terrifying powers—summoning storms, raising the dead, and setting everything they touch ablaze. Those who Manifest must choose: become a sheepdog who protects the flock or a wolf who devours it…
In the wake of a bloody battle at Forward Operating Base Frontier and a scandalous presidential impeachment, Lieutenant Colonel Jan Thorsson, call sign “Harlequin,” becomes a national hero and a pariah to the military that is the only family he’s ever known.
In the fight for Latent equality, Oscar Britton is positioned to lead a rebellion in exile, but a powerful rival beats him to the punch: Scylla, a walking weapon who will stop at nothing to end the human-sanctioned apartheid against her kind.
When Scylla’s inhuman forces invade New York City, the Supernatural Operations Corps are the only soldiers equipped to prevent a massacre. In order to redeem himself with the military, Harlequin will be forced to face off with this havoc-wreaking woman from his past, warped by her power into something evil…
About the author: As a security contractor, government civilian, and military officer, Myke Cole‘s career has run the gamut from counterterrorism to cyber warfare to federal law enforcement. He’s done three tours in Iraq and was recalled to serve during the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. All that conflict can wear a guy out. Thank goodness for fantasy novels, comic books, late-night games of Dungeons & Dragons, and lots of angst-fueled writing. He is the author of Special Ops: Control Point and Special Ops: Fortress Frontier.
