Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Greek myth and biotechnology collide in Robinson's first in a new thriller series to feature the Chess Team, an elite Delta Force unit whose members each use a chess piece—king, bishop, knight, etc.—as a call sign. When the legendary Hydra, whose slaying was the second of Hercules' 12 labors, turns up in Peru alive (albeit in dormant form), Richard Ridley, the head of Manifold, a company renowned in the world of genetics, seeks to revive the beast. Ridley, who plans to use the Hydra's DNA to make humans immortal, transports the creature to the South Atlantic island of Tristan da Cunha, where the Chess Team winds up blasting away at semireptilean regens, people infected with Hydra serum who can regrow damaged or missing body parts almost instantly. Robinson (Antarktos Rising) will have readers turning the pages, but the resolution, which pulls many punches, will surprise no one. (May 26)

From Booklist

Robinson’s latest reads like a video game with tons of action and lots of carnage. The CEO of a genetics lab uses ruthless methods to achieve his goals. When he uncovers research that could make eternal life a reality, he swings into high gear, abducting an archaeologist who can help find the key. In the process, however, he sets off a chain of events that could destroy the world. Called in to rescue the archaeologist, a Delta Forces team consisting of members nicknamed after chess pieces tries to stop the madman. The combination of mythology, technology, and high-octane action proves irresistible. The heroes could have been fleshed out a bit better, but perhaps that will come in the expected sequel. For the moment, the action is enough. Gruesome and nasty in a good way, this will appeal to readers of Matthew Reilly. --Jeff Ayers
