Overview

When a team of Delta operators goes missing in Shenhuang, one of China's newly constructed ghost cities, Shin Dae-jung-Callsign: Knight, is called in to assist. But the Osprey transporting him to the scene falls prey to an EMP attack and is forced to crash land atop a parking garage. With a wounded pilot in tow, Knight explores the empty city for signs of life and finds two terrified children who warn him that something monstrous is stalking the city. When the pilot disappears, leaving a pool of b lood and spent bullet casings behind, Knight doesn't doubt their story.

As bullets fly and bodies drop, Knight must protect the children, uncover the fate of the missing Delta team and defend against an unstoppable killer whose ability to regenerate and whose horrible appearance reminds him of something he's faced before-the mythological Hydra. But he's not alone in the surreal abandoned city. A team of SAS soldiers, along with Anna Beck, a former member of Manifold Genetics' private security force, join the fray. Together, they fight against a nightmare that follows its objective to the end: kill them all.

The novella was pretty good but was far too predictable. It could use a twist or two so the reader gets a bit of a surprise. Also, the relationship between Knight and Beck made him seem like a sappy kind of person or maybe an adolescent boy. It really didn't add anything to the story and I had to roll my eyes more than once. I guess it was a good effort for a novella but it lacks way too much for a really good story. Stephanie Clanahan

A knight, in shining…armor? Knight, Shin Dae-jung, is a small man of Asian descent. He’s agile, smart, and rich. lol. He was on vacation when called to duty by Deep Blue. Two military camps were destroyed by, no one knows what. One camp was American and the other was British. The origin of the attacks were tracked back to an abandoned city in China.  Knight is being flown into the city in a specially outfitted airplane when the plane is hit by an EMP. The pilot is able to crash land it on top of a parking garage. Knight heads out to investigate the near surrounds. Seeing movement in a building, he runs in chasing down whoever it is. Turns out to be a couple of orphaned children who were unable to make it out of the city. Good thing too because they know a great hiding place from the monster that starts to chase all three of them through the building.  Knight enlists the kids help in watching for the monster while he heads out again. He is to meet with a military detachment to find out what his mission is. What he finds it that the detachment has been decimated. However, he does run into an old associate. A refuge from Manifold. Together the two discover that one mad scientist from Manifold had escaped and has been experimenting with a formula that changes people into monsters. Monsters that are incredibly hard to kill.  There is a lot of action in this story. I really like Knight. He’s a great guy. Mad science, monsters, an abandoned city, and a bit of flirting make this story a great read. Jeremy even managed to use the word twitterpated. I was so tickled. I love this story.

Call Sign: Knight is exactly the kind of story you would expect from someone named Knight.  Damsels and children to "rescue", a monster to fight, and a bad guy to stop.  I liked this Chess Team novella a lot.  It follows Prime, Pulse, Instinct, Threshold, and Call Sign books King book 1, Queen, Rook, and Bishop.  Awesome awesome series.  Check it out!  Now onto Call Sign: King book 2 Underworld!

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!
