'JADE SKY is a an ass-kicking action-fantasy that takes no prisoners. Lightning fast, brutal and way too much fun. Highly recommended!" -Jonathan Maberry, New York Times Bestselling author of CODE ZERO and FALL OF NIGHT
"JADE SKY is one of those all too rare reading experiences that just consumes you.... Freivald made a future so rich in detail and so full of life and energy that I couldn't help but lose myself in it. This is a book full of wild invention and even wilder action, yet grounded by a genuinely sympathetic love for the people who live there. Freivald has truly reached a new high water mark here, which is pretty scary considering that he was already so damn good." --Joe McKinney, Bram Stoker Award®-winning author of PLAGUE OF THE UNDEAD
"With Jade Sky, Patrick Freivald takes science fiction, the supernatural and action adventure, seamlessly combining the genres in a unique and page-turning thriller. He brings his world, characters, dialogue and narrative to life with skill and assurance that keep the reader turning the pages. Loved this book!" --Dana Fredsti, author of PLAGUE WORLD
"JADE SKY rips like a bullet... or an entire armory of same. Cinch up your body armor and enjoy Patrick Freivald's blitzkrieg through dark trenches and the corridors of the human heart--I sure did."--Norman Partridge, author of DARK HARVEST
"JADE SKY delivers on its promise of action, suspense, and brutality, all with a decided supernatural twist. Matt Rowley is a worthy entry into the monster hunter/paranormal vigilante genre. Once you pick this book up, you'll find yourself loathe to put it down, as each chapter ratchets the thrills higher and higher."--JG Faherty, Bram Stoker Award®- and Thriller Award-nominated author of multiple novels and novellas, including THIEF OF SOULS, CARNIVAL OF FEAR, and THE BURNING TIME.
From the Author
"Jade Sky is part action-adventure, part horror, part sci-fi and part urban fantasy, all woven into a very enjoyable story. I could see myself in the theater watching this on the big screen, chewing on some popcorn."--Frank Michaels Errington's Horrible Book Reviews

Some may be put off by the violence and the gore, but if so, why are you reading this book in the first place? You know what you are getting, and Jade Sky gives it to you. Frankly, that's why I gave it five stars. Jade Sky does exactly what it seeks to do, and does it well. Is it as good as Freivald's Twice Shy? No. That book was, in my view, nearly perfect. The plot in Jade Sky isn't quite as good, and the characterizations pale in comparison. But when toe-to-toe to other similar thrillers? Jade Sky shines.
If you love action, if you love thrillers, if you love a little sci-fi magic, don't let Jade Sky pass you by.
Ten pages in and I was hooked. Freivald has an uncanny ability as a writer to throw high paced action at you without negating from a core characters growth and development. JADE SKY is a perfect example of information versus action done right.
JADE SKY tells the story of Matt Rowley, an agent who has enhancements to his body through augmentation and becomes essentially a Captain America type figure. He is a part of a group of super-human augmented agents known as “Augs.” It’s a fight of good versus evil, with lots of enhanced ability action tossed into the mix.
Rowley is an extremely likeable character straight out of the gate. His constant inner struggle is masked by his mind-numbing want to lead a normal life. He constantly upgrades his body and tries to be the best he can be, while all the while hoping each day to be better no matter the cost. It’s easy to develop great sympathy for him, but at the same time wanting to slap some sense into him!
JADE SKY touches on many social issues that seem to transpire no matter what age we are living in. Governmental affairs, cover ups, the war on drugs, they are all touched on in this work and done so without bias or frills.
The action is top notch, the military descriptions are spot on and it leaves your heart racing after every scene. At the same time, the character interaction and intelligence point of view is not lost in a sea of shoot-‘em-up violence. The two are blended seamlessly and almost effortlessly into a story that is great from start to finish.
In short? JADE SKY is not a book you want to pass up. If you like super heroes, military fiction, fantasy and high paced action than this is right up your alley. If you don’t know if you like all that, well pick this up and give it a shot! JADE SKY is a reminder of why we love books so much, a high profile story with substance and skill.
Write on my friends, write on.
Once they are out of harm's way, Matt and his boss debate the likelihood that something was off about the mission.
From then on, disturbing events unfold, and Matt and his team learn things that would make grown augmented men shudder--things that might very well strip away everything they know and love. In the meantime, ICAP kept them busy, sending them to foreign lands to spearhead negotiations with a Jade dealer.
Midway, Matt and his squad are propelled into a high-octane bloodlust fight. Lives are extinguished, some they regret, others not so much. Cursing the choice he was forced to make, Matt soldiers on, determined to find out what went wrong.
Will he find out what caused all of the chaos or will they die before learning the truth?
I like that...
Matt can crush a trachea with his thumb, but when he is at home with his wife, Monica, he is a different man. Even when he feels like his humanity is slipping away, she is the thread that holds him together.
