Praise for the MJ-12 Thrillers:
Praise for MJ-12: Shadows
“So good, in fact, that it makes you wonder why all sequels can’t be this good . . . a fun, inventive, action-packed exploration of super spies operating in the shadows of history, and an almost perfect sequel.”―Fantasy Faction, 10/10
“Martinez is just really good at hitting the ball out of the park when he writes a sequel. . . . A great spy novel. . . . may well rank as his best work.”―InfiniteFreeTime.com
“A smart look at a Cold War in many ways even colder and scarier and deadlier than the one we barely survived.”
―New York Times bestselling author Harry Turtledove
“A heady blend of super-spies and superpowers, MJ-12: Inception is Cold War-era science fiction done right. A taut thriller, and skillfully evocative.”
―New York Times bestselling author Chris Roberson
“The Cold War becomes even more chilling as super-powered Americans are trained to become super-spies in Martinez's new alternate-history thriller. It's morally-complex, intense, and so steeped in the 1940s, you can smell the cigarette smoke.”
―Beth Cato, author of Breath of Earth and The Clockwork Dagger
Praise for Michael J. Martinez
“[Martinez] seamlessly blends popular elements from science fiction and fantasy, producing a work that raises the bar for both.”
―Publishers Weekly (starred review for The Venusian Gambit)

In the first MJ-12 book, Michael J Martinez introduced us to a post-World War II world where humans
with super-human abilities were starting to emerge. A number of these Variants were recruited by the
US government to help out in the Cold War era with missions of spying and espionage.
In MJ-12: Shadows, those Variants are back as well as a few new ones.
One thing Martinez does well is blend the historical and the fantastical together nearly seamlessly.
The way the fictional Variants interact with historical figures is well handled. Once again, the use of
powers is understated to focus more on the characters themselves. That is, up until the end…
The mystery of how and why the Variants got their powers is also expanded on. But not nearly enough
to let you wait patiently for the third book.
Martinez has proven once again that alternate history is clearly where he belongs.
I eagerly await the third book in the series.
