One of my favorite wrinkles introduced into the series is a new antagonist. Based on this new nemesis' reappearance in the second King book it is clear that this enemy will continue to battle the Chess Team. Call it a hunch, but I have a feeling we are already familiar with this villian.
With this novella King maintains both his prominance as team leader, and his vulnerability. I love the fact that Robinson's heroes are neither infallible nor superhuman (though their enemies and allies may be). King makes mistakes and suffers his share of injuries, but his intillegence and extensive training are key to his survival.
If you are a fan of the Chess Team/Jack Sigler Adventures then grab the Callsign novellas. They add terrific depth to each team member, are quick reads, and will likely link to the next book in the series.
I enjoyed reading Callsign: King - Book 1. Zipped right thru it. I plan to buy all the novellas and will space them out until this summer (in which I will probably break down and consume the Chess Team new book).
I think my next selection will be Callsign: Queen - Book 1.
A scientific research company is looking into a myth about a graveyard of elephants in Ethiopia. The scientists find something but not what they expected. Now the fate of mankind is dependent on the health and survival of the scientist, Felice Carter, who “inherited” the wisdom of the “old mother.”
A rogue CIA agent kidnaps Sara and Felice. He turns them over to a man from a defunct scientific corporation who works for Brainstorm, the supercomputer.
Throughout the story we get to see King’s special brand of ingenuity and perseverance as he does all in his power to rescue his girlfriend, and Felice, with minimal help from Chess Team.
Jeremy Robinson, with Sean Ellis, write a fast paced, engrossing story with likeable lead characters. They show human weaknesses which makes them more authentic as well as showing the determination that we want our warriors and heroes to have.
In the vein of Cussler, Lincoln, Preston, and Rollins, this short story will hold your attention and leave you wanting more. Fortunately, there are more Chess Team books.
