Review for Shadow Ops: Breach Zone by Myke Cole






The Great Reawakening did not come quietly. Across the country and in every nation, people began “coming up Latent,” developing terrifying powers—summoning storms, raising the dead, and setting everything they touch ablaze. Those who Manifest must choose: become a sheepdog who protects the flock or a wolf who devours it…

In the wake of a bloody battle at Forward Operating Base Frontier and a scandalous presidential impeachment, Lieutenant Colonel Jan Thorsson, call sign “Harlequin,” becomes a national hero and a pariah to the military that is the only family he’s ever known.

In the fight for Latent equality, Oscar Britton is positioned to lead a rebellion in exile, but a powerful rival beats him to the punch: Scylla, a walking weapon who will stop at nothing to end the human-sanctioned apartheid against her kind.

When Scylla’s inhuman forces invade New York City, the Supernatural Operations Corps are the only soldiers equipped to prevent a massacre. In order to redeem himself with the military, Harlequin will be forced to face off with this havoc-wreaking woman from his past, warped by her power into something evil….

************************************************

War in an alternate universe, the bad guys are on the rampage and want to take over the world or just destroy it.  This is an action packed read.  So much so that it's hard to stay focused on the story.  I got lost through the book a few times.  However, it was a pretty good read and I was able to picture the scenarios. 

There is quite a few characters in the book and that is why I got lost, I kept mixing them up and it made it a bit tough for me to keep up with the characters an each of their parts in the war.

If you like books with multiple characters, action and paranormal abilities this is an excellent book for you.

3 1/2 STARS
