Once again, Breakfield and Burkey have created some villains of epic proportions. Oxnard (that name alone is sneer-worthy), kidnapper and all-around cretin, is one of those evil-doers readers will revel in hating. At one point he seems to almost cherish describing the beating into submission of elephants as he taunts his captive, Keith Avery. Oxnard represents everything vile in a human, and the authors have more than hit the mark with this character.
The various pairs of team members who work together all have a chemistry that can’t be beat. The authors have succeeded in crafting characters like Julie and Juan and Petra and Jacob who rather effortlessly morph from business-like and focused to laidback couples thoroughly enjoying each other’s company. Each couple is as intelligent and driven as the other, and virtually all of their dialogue flows smoothly and is laden with relatable humor.
I found Su Lin and Franklin’s storyline to be rather intriguing all the way around. The fact that Su Lin’s experiments could yield results helpful to the military and stemmed from her work with a pig, well...it was a fascinating spin. Daisy’s very personal and painful experience related to her work makes the entire subplot much more believable and personal for readers.
Though filled to the brim with technical terms and bubbling with all the seriousness of big screen drama, the authors lace their work with humor. The acronyms themselves are, more often than not, based on levity. For example, the acronym COBWEB represents Civilian Observer Blokes Wearing Excessive Bling. I had to laugh out loud at the appearance of the brothers, Won and Ton. Breakfield and Burkey, without a doubt, deliver the humor.
I have to say that the addition of Andy to this cast of characters is a welcome one. Andy, experienced in communications and a native of the South, was a pleasure to read. Being from the South myself, I appreciated his southern drawl and the references to his hospitality. Stereotypical? Maybe. In a good way? Absolutely.
I have to rate The Engima Ignite by Breakfield and Burkey a 5 out of 5. I thoroughly enjoy the dialogue between the characters whether it be between the villain and the heroes or between the good guys in their private moments. The authors manage to take highly technical terms and procedures and make them relatable for the average reader. Their well-drawn characters are a huge part of that success.
The authors put an interesting spin on nanobots that is unusual, unique and fascinating! Petra and Jacob are together again but play a smaller role in this story letting others take center stage. Professor Su Lin in her quiet life to improve animal husbandry and with her assistants' help makes a discovery that everyone wants at any cost! Otto and his crew of experts combined with new characters strive to keep the deadly work from the wrong hands while also thwarting the evil terrorist hell-bent on wreaking havoc on the US. Su Lin puts Jacob and others in a major tailspin as they race against the clock to save her.
The authors Charles Breakfield and Roxanne Burkey are amazing authors! They know their audience and know the genre inside and out! They have built a cohesive and captivating group of people that their readers are invested in. Their dialogs are realistic as are their characters. I cannot wait to see where Breakfield and Burkey take us next with the earth-shattering endings and beginnings that are going to take place in the next book!
Derek Shoales did a great job of narrating the story. His voice fluctuated appropriately, he spoke clearly and with some of the characters spoke them with conviction (i.e. the terrorist). I enjoyed his voice and tone throughout the book.
Anyone who loves thrillers and mysteries with an amazing TWIST – this is the book for you!!!
