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.

Ken (or "Börken" as his gaming friends refer to him) spends his time reading books at a speed several words over the posted speed limit, makes things explode virtually (and sometimes literally), and is always busy raising a 7 year old Princess who's quite capable of rescuing herself, thank you very much.
