    Not a bad read, but be careful

    This book has a very resident evil feel to it, which I like. A small group of people desperately fighting against horrifying genetically mutated monsters. My biggest complaint is that this is titled as book one, but it takes place well into the series. There is a lot of background thats important to the story, but I don't even know where the series begins. Apparentally there is a book 1 for each of a half dozen characters that takes place before this one.

    I cannot begin to explain how happy I was to see that Callsign:

    I cannot begin to explain how happy I was to see that Callsign: Deep Blue was available as an audiobook. I love the chess team/ Jack Sigler series by Jeremy Robinson and really enjoyed reading this book a while back. The audiobook is even better than I expected, after spending over 3 hours with Tom Duncan, I think I might even have a little crush. I would recommend listening to the other audiobooks in the series first, although it isn’t really necessary as this does work as a stand alone. I just prefer to read/ listen in order and a few references are made about previous books, it doesn’t take anything way from the enjoyment of the book though.

    The audiobook is 3 hours and 18 minutes of pure fun, Tom Duncan, Callsign: Deep Blue is trapped in the chess team’s new headquarters by a group of mercenaries, Deep Blue and his support team are trying to survive human and not so human threats. Anyone that has read anything by Jeremy Robinson and Kane Gilmour will know that no character is off limits and anything can happen, you will not be disappointed with this book. The things these guys think up are freaking, and it’s pretty awesome. The narration was clear, entertaining and engaging. Jeffrey Kafer does an amazing job of bringing the listener into the story, I felt like I was there, I was experiencing and reacting to the things the characters were experiencing. One of the things I think that works really well and is probably a combination of good writing and equally good narrating is that you can identify and connect with the characters during the action.

    I really am hoping that we see more of the ‘character novellas’. King got 3 books, so I’m holding onto my hope. It would be pretty sweet to see the other members of the team have another book or two. I shall keep my fingers crossed, although I do wonder whether Jeremy Robinson would be open to bribery.

    Good Novella

    Pretty good, especially for a novella. I really enjoyed getting to learn more about Deep Blue and see the direction in which Robinson is taking his character. I am reading the books in order and I am starting to miss the depth of the full length novels. The novellas just don't allow the reader to become as engrossed in the story a I like. Still, this one was pretty good. Stephanie Clanahan

    So we finally get to see 'Deep Blue' in action, and it was great to see. The man behind Chess Team is as good as the rest of the team at getting himself into and out of trouble. A great, fun story. Kane Gilmour & Jeremy Robinson are a great team and I look forward to reading more from them.

    Take a tour of the Chess Team facility. The exciting way.
     
    In this story, we get to go inside the new headquarters of Chess Team. It’s not set up yet, but an advance team is there looking around and taking stock. One of the team is the ex-president of the United States, Tom Duncan, aka Deep Blue, the leader behind Chess Team. The place is huge and amazing. It was captured from Manifold and is being refitted, unfortunately, not quickly enough. 

    Deep Blue, along with a computer whiz, gets trapped in the facility when the security doors all shut and lock. The rest of the advanced team, a security detail, is stuck outside trying to find a way. However, the reason the facility has shut down is because it is being invaded, by Manifold security. They are there to retrieve a sample and don’t care who gets in the way. There orders are to destroy the place after they have gotten the sample. 

    The Chess Team security detail immediately goes into action. While they are doing their thing, Deep Blue tries to find out what is going on. As suspected, a Manifold experiment has gone wildly out of control. Deep Blue and his security are fighting against the intruders and the results of the experiment. Then the lights go out.

    The ex-president shows he is just as capable as any of his Chess Team warriors. Definitely, a must read!

    The Chess Team books are a blast to read and I loved each of the Callsign books.  Get to know each character a little better with a great story.  You can't go wrong with Jeremy Robinson's books, check them out!

    good read

    This was a new author for me. The book is part of a series but can be read as a stand alone book

    Excellent!

    I usually do not read books about soldiers and other countries, etc. But, as I have come to expect from Jeremy Robinson, as well as the other name he writes under, Jeremy Bishop, if I begin to read, I get "caught up". I have read almost all his books and loved them all. A very talented author!
