Books in the Mail (W/E 2013-11-30)

Since last week was Thanksgiving week, it was a rather slow week here at the home of the 'O Stuff. Just one review book arrived this week on my kindle.

Shadow OPS: Breach Zone by Myke Cole (Ace, Mass Market Paperback 01/28/2014) – Myke’s two Shadow OPS novels Control Point and Fortress Frontier are some of my favorite books published in the last couple of years. This one brings the connected trilogy to a close.

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.
