Holy crap. We read a book. It’s not about games?
Try not to faint. But yes. A book.
Be still my heart…
Anyway, this is an entry into the military fantasy genre – bullets, bombs, and magic. An interesting mix to say the least. Its protagonist is Jim Schweitzer, a Navy S.E.A.L: so, a certified badass.
You had my attention at bullets.
Of course I did. Now shut your hate hole and let me get on with this.
The story starts out pretty well, and then kind of goes all George R.R. Martin-ish. Jim winds up with a severe case of dead after a mission goes wrong. But, as this is a fantasy entry, he’s not dead for long.
Suddenly, he comes to in a government facility and all is not well on the farm. His family is in danger, and he finds himself between a rock and a hard place; find out who killed him, or protect his family.
It’s an engaging read, but I found myself guessing what was going to happen next with regularity (save for one part but you’ll have to read it for yourself).
All in all, I can recommend it.
Awww. Can we read another one?
Yep, we’ll be reading the next one in the series this weekend.
