    anyone who relishes an action urban fantasy thriller that combines science and mythology will enjoy this thriller

    Six months ago, Jack "King" Sigler received an urgent message from his late sister's former fiancé George Pierce to meet him at the Siletz Reservation in Oregon. When he arrives, he finds the place in ruins with thousands dead. The one survivor of the attack thirteen year old Native American Fiona Lane has a note pinned to her shirt by Alexander Diotrephes, who the King believes is Hercules; he says he is going after the mass murderers. Sigler brings together the rest of the Chess Team (Queen, Rook, Bishop and Knight) to help him protect Fiona and to learn why the deadly assault happened and who is behind it.

    In the present in family court, Sigler swears he will be a good parent to Fiona as the judge names him her foster father. However, as more people who speak dying ancient languages are systematically massacred, the Chess Team with President Duncan joining them must end the debacle, but struggle to learn who is behind the attacks. Instead, they face giant living granite statues, literally Neanderthals, genetic impossibilities, hydras and megaliths by someone who wants to checkmate the Chess team to prevent their intrusion. As they confront lethal enemies, none are aware of the danger from within as Fiona is kidnapped at Fort Bragg; fearing the Judge most of all, King and crew attempt a rescue.

    As always the Chess Team is over the top of the stratosphere, but anyone who relishes an action urban fantasy thriller that combines science and mythology will want to join them for the exhilarating Pulse pumping ride. The story line is as always fast-paced so wear our seatbelts and set aside time as this heart thumper never slows down making it impossible to set aside as the Instinct of the audience is one sitting.

    Five Stars

    I very rarely give any book 5 stars but this one deserves it. I didn't think Robinson could get any better either, but he has managed to do that, too. I would say he has even surpassed James Rollins on this one- by a big margin. All I can say is WOW! Stephanie Clanahan

    Fast Paced and Action Laced

    This was the 3rd installment in the Chess Team series and it was the best so far. Great action, fast paced with excellent character development. Really brought you into the story and turning the pages to find out what was next.

    Read Threshold!

    Threshold, the fourth book in the Chess Team saga, after Prime, Pulse, and Instinct, does not disappoint!  The team splits up, trying to stop a madman before he completes his evil quest.  They are also trying to save a girl who has become like King's daughter from the same madman.  Jeremy Robinson throws a bunch of new beasties and plot twists at you, and all of them are fun!  Now, onto the Chess Team Callsign books.....

    Robinson is most known for his quick strike approach and detaile

    Robinson is most known for his quick strike approach and detailed character development and he doesnt disappoint!

    Threshold is book #3 in Jeremy Robinson's best selling series of the Jack Sigler & the Chess Team. Jack & company have a new mission: investigate a terrorist attack in Oregon & protect the only survivor, a 13 year old girl.

    New monsters - New locations - Same great writing that has me on the edge of my seat chapter by chapter!!!

    Chess Team Strikes Again!

    Wow! Another action packed thriller by Mr. Robinson. The Chess Team does it again.. This time without the help of their former "angel in the sky." Mixing ancient religions, mythology, and modern science; this is a must read for anyone who enjoys a good thriller. I recommend reading PULSE and INSTINCT first, as the continuity in these books is spot-on.

    Another Chess Team Winner!!

    I admit it, I was hooked from the very first Jeremy Robinson Chess Team thriller. He has created a group of very believable and dare I say lovable characters who seem to get into the worst situations to fight on the side of right. Along with their handler "Deep Blue" they each have their unique way of getting into some hair raising difficulties and blast or finesse their way through.

    Yes, we do see some science fiction, some fantasy and some science possible, but it comes together so seamlessly that you just are left craving more. With each book in the series, each member of the team reveals more of their background, and this one is no different. Jack Sigler aka King is left to defend his adopted daughter and she is whom everyone wants.

    Then, there is Jack's parents, but I don't want to reveal anything more.. You are just going to have to read it yourself. I hope to read a lot more from this fantastic author. Keep it coming!!
