The first book in the Chessocalypse series of novellas co-written by Jeremy Robinson and other writers. Do yourself a favor and pick up Pulse, Instinct, and Threshold in that order before you read any of these novellas, other wise you might be a little lost. If you just want a sampling though get the first novella and I promise it will not be the last you buy. Jeremy Robinson blends military, science, and mythology and monsters together so very well; you will be on the edge of your seat the whole time waiting to see what is next. Not so much a new name in fiction as a great name in fiction, I look forward to all the future works from this truly talented author.

Another awesome book in collaboration by my two favorite authors. The action starts right from the start and does not let up till end. The story has more plot twists than I care to mention. The novella reads like a full length novel. Jeremy always finds a brand new myth to go with brand new hard science. The exposition on the myth and the science are not lengthy as they would be in a full length novel, however the author does answer all questions and does not leave any loose ends. In fact he goes a step further and throws you a curve ball at the end.
To make sense of lots of characters you will have to read the previous Chess Team novels and novellas. If you haven't read them already then get them now. They are well worth the money and then some.
Synopsis: Brainstorm is back and up to some shenanigans in Paris. King is sent on a simple snatch and grab operation to apprehend the creator of Brainstorm . As an added bonus Deep Blue sends King's girlfirend and daughter to Paris for a little paid vacation and a surprise to King after the mission is over. However soon things go horribly wrong and the simple mission turns into a fight for survival. At which point things go beyond horribly wrong and the fight for survival turns into a fight to save the world.

I have just finished reading all seven novellas, and I must admit that this was my least favorite of the Chesspocalypse series. That said, it's like saying rocky road is my least favorite ice cream. It's still enjoyable, but I prefer others. My only real complaint is that I am not terribly fond of the supernatural element in this book. The whole possession aspect was unappealing, but that is just a matter of personal preference. Sean Ellis' writing, however, was true to Jeremy Robinson's form. Ellis replicated Robinson's style seemlessly, incorporating different vocabulary of similar ilk, while keeping King's character intact.

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 have become a huge fan of Jeremy's work since I started reading him a couple of years ago. These Chess Team novella's are a lot of fun to read. They grab you from the get go and don't let go until the very end and when you are done, you can't believe it's over because it was such a fun ride. This latest one is no exception. I won't go into any detail about the book. If you are up to date with all of the other Chess Team Novella's, you have to get this one. You won't be disappointed.

I have read at least one book by each of the co-authors of the novella series and although they each have their own distinctive style of writing, they are all very talented and know how to weave a good story. Taking the sick and wicked ideas of Jeremy Robinson and putting them together with other talented authors was a great idea! Sometimes people have a great idea/concept but having someone else take that idea/concept and adding their own spin to it makes it an even better final product. These novella's are a perfect example of that type of collaboration.

Happy reading!

This is full of action and dark goings on in Ethiopia and the Elephant's Graveyard, where ivory is not the only prize. King takes on two opposing and well-equipped forces in a frantic search to find a deadly agent after he is called to Ethiopia by a text from his girlfriend and disease investigator, Sarah Fogg. Things get more complicated and Fogg disappears, adding to the tension as King's motivation increases. Short but definitely sweet novella I and can't wait for the next in the series!
