About the Author
As a security contractor, government civilian, and military officer, Myke Cole’s career has run the gamut from counterterrorism to cyber warfare to federal law enforcement. He’s done three tours in Iraq and was recalled to serve during the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. He recently joined the cast of the TV show Hunted on CBS as part of an elite team of fugitive hunters. All that conflict can wear a guy out. Thank goodness for fantasy novels, comic books, late-night games of Dungeons & Dragons, and lots of angst-fueled writing. Myke is the author of Javelin Rain and Gemini Cell, prequels to his Shadow Ops novels, which include Breach Zone, Fortress Frontier, and Control Point.

You took what started out as a fantastic idea with a somewhat frustrating main character and turned the second installment of the series into a fracking fantastic novel that could easily stand on its own.
I love Alan Bookbinder. What a relatable main character. I found myself getting into the story much more when told from his point of view. I was rooting for him to succeed from nearly the very first page.
And the reintroduction of Harlequin--excellent. I'm on that guy's side as well.
The action in this book was so well-written, I felt like I was watching a movie. I was literally on the edge of the couch, Kindle glued to my nose. I'm going to need glasses after this.
I was a big fan of the growth of the plot towards larger political questions. The society you've created is not totally unlike what I believe the world, and in particular the United States, would be like with the introduction of sorcery. But I do believe that there would be people fighting for the civil rights of sorcerers much like the civil rights movements in the past. I can't wait to see how it's resolved.
I freaking LOVED this book. Cole set the bar for himself pretty high with Control Point. He exceeded it with Fortress Frontier. My jaw dropped at least three times reading this, usually followed by some exclamation of surprise, giddiness, bouncing like a little schoolgirl, and general glee. There were some great surprises here, and it's more than worth the read.
And snakes. Lots and lots of snakes.
Off to read the third book now. :)
