Overview

Jack Sigler, Callsign: King, has been a lot of things in his life. A soldier, a father, a hero. But now he's taking up a new title: guardian.

After a life fighting billionaire madmen, terrorists and unnatural threats, he's stuck thousands of years in the past, using his knowledge of history and modern warfare to right wrongs and stand up for those in need.

When he meets a twelve year old boy-the prince of the Babylonian Empire-who is to be sacrificed to the ancient goddess, Tiamat, by a twisted High Priest, King steps in, sword swinging. But what starts as a simple snatch and grab, quickly turns into a pitched battle against a legion of men and hideous creatures. As Tiamat rises from her ancient resting place, the fate of the world-and King's future-is at stake.

Trapped millennia in the past and gifted with regenerative abilities, King must live out the centuries until he returns to his own time and his family. The Jack Sigler Continuum series tells the events that occurred in King's life as a result of the full-length novel, Omega, but no prior reading is required to enjoy the Continuum series. Each story will be a standalone adventure, and a great jumping-on point. For more of King's adventures, check out the entire Jack Sigler/Chess Team series.

    This is your one and only warning to not read this review if you

    This is your one and only warning to not read this review if you have not read "Omega" by Jeremy Robinson. I'm deadly serious about this: even reading the author's blurb about the book will spoil a major (and I mean MAJOR) plot point in "Omega".


    Are you still reading?


    You have been warned...


    Okay, here we go...


    After being tricked into going back into the past by Alexander/Hercules, Jack Sigler (or King) has spent the past 200 years, wandering the world alone. Thanks to his nature of protecting the innocent and fighting the bad guys, he's been continuing this self-imposed mission for the past 200 years. This time, he takes it upon himself (or is it divinely destined) to save Belshazzar, grandson of the famous Babylonian King, Nebuchadnezzar, from death at either the hands of the evil priest, Seleb-Meloch, or his own grandfather.

    After having spent so much time with the amazing man that is King, it was kind of hard to see him going through so much in this book. Thanks to the regenerating remedies Alexander gave him, he is able to come back from just about anything, even death. But it doesn't stop him from feeling the excruciating pain that accompanies some of these deaths, or the psychological traumas that are also inflicted. Having read "Omega", we KNOW he eventually is reunited with his beloved Sara and Fiona, but it's heartbreaking to know how far left he has to go. I feel that "Guardian" has set the precedent for many more amazing Jack Sigler adventures to come... and I, for one, CAN. NOT. WAIT!!!!!

    What a great peek into King's experiences during his time in the past. Seeing mythical stories unraveling during their own time period made this one of the more interesting Chess Team stories yet! A great read.

    What do you get when you combine two stellar writers?????




    You get Guardian.




    This is part of the Chess Team Saga by Jeremy Robinson, how ever it can pass as a stand alone story, 
    but I recommend getting familiar with this entire collection. Anyway King gets trapped in time, 
    and this is one of the many events he experiences during this strange time in his life. 
    It's very well written, and I like how they where able to mix biblical and historical events with a 
    major dose of ass kicking and action galore!!!!
    It's a short book but definitely one of the best so far. I highly recommend not only this book but the entire collection. Enjoy!!

    This is a great launch for a new series.  The story ultimately goes in a direction that I didn't anticipate, and I loved that.  Brilliant stuff!  It's hard to say more without spoilers.  I will say this: I have some fear that King's regenerative powers will become cartoonish like everything immortal in Highlander 2.  But so far, I'm happy to say that's not happening.  Wall to wall action, and no Wiley coyote hijinks.  :-)




    Can't wait for the next installment!

    Great Addition to Sigler's Story

    Fast-paced and well-written plot that is imaginative as well as exciting-- those are the words I would use to desvribe this book but yet they fall far short of the mark. This book was an excellent addition to the Jack Sigler story. It was short enough to read in a few hours but it still maintained the highest level of interest. Robinson is truly a master.

    Loved it! More please!

    I was so excited to find out what happened to King during his ridiculously lengthy voyage through time to get back to his family. Guardian did not disappoint. It kept the action going, while giving me a taste of how King made it through time. It sounds like maybe he did it better than his predecessor, but I guess I'll have to wait for more tales in this series before I can say that for sure. I can't wait to see where/when else King made his mark on history.

    What a page-turner. I honestly could not put it down. Lots of action and extremely well written. Robinson & Holloway are a fascinating combination. I would strongly recommend reading the other Chess Team/ Jack Sigler Thrillers before picking this one up as it does have some major spoilers that happen in those, however, if you don't mind spoilers go ahead and get this. I can guarantee you will not be sorry.

    Can Never Get Too Much of King! How often do you wish you could

    Can Never Get Too Much of King!

    How often do you wish you could get more of a back story for your favorite characters? Well, you are in for a great peek into one of the most beloved characters of Jeremy Robinson's Chess Team Novels, Jack Sigler, aka King.
    J. Kent Holloway is back for another installment as co-writer of the Chess Team Novels. If you have read the latest Chess Team book, Omega, then you know about King being sent back in time against his will. Separated from those he loves, Jack must live through centuries before he can be reunited with his family, but what he encounters along the way is the stuff of this first Continuum novella. Historical characters, Robinson and Holloway monsters, religious and mystical occurrences all intertwined together make for a fascinating read.
    If you haven't read the previous Chess Team books, you are missing out on fascinating ideas from Jeremy Robinson's unending imagination and a slew of very clever co-authors. Once you finish this, you will definitely want to go back and read all the Chess Team books and novellas to be ready for the next great adventure!

    Guardian was a sit down and don't get up until the end kind of book. This fast-paced, quick read was the story of one of King's (Jack Sigler of Chess Team) adventures in the distant past as he waits for time to catch him up with his family and friends. I hope it is first of many. Like Jack, this book stands alone but read all of his stories anyway just because they are very good.

    Wow what a great follow up story to Omega, History & Sci-fi and of course King all set into 1 book. This was a ROCKSTAR story I love the fact that the twist & turns will keep you on the edge of your seat. When I think the writing can't get better it does.
    Try out this book you will love it.

    Another hit from Jeremy! And who better to start the Jack Sigler Continuum Series than J. Kent Holloway! What the story lacks in pages (154), it makes it up with the plot and action. I couldn’t put it down until the last page.

    I love the Chess Team/Jack Sigler books and was so excited when I heard this was coming out after Omega.  It was worth the wait!  Was surprised at the direction Jeremy took it but loved it just the same.  I should know by now you can't predict what Jeremy is going to write or what direction he might take his stories, one of the reasons his books are so much fun. I highly recommend this book.

    Robinson & Holloway tag team to give you a fantastic adventure in the past. For those of you who have read the other Chess Team novels, you know the identity of the mysterious stranger who was introduced at the beginning of the book, and it was just a matter of time before he found trouble. For those who haven't read them, you're missing out! Mythical beasts, ridiculous odds, mysterious allies, and some science fiction are ingredients that Robinson includes in mostly all of his books, and he never ceases to amaze.

    The king has left the century. 

    King, Jack Sigler, is in a new environment. He has traveled to the very distant past. The story is set in the Middle East environs around Babylonia. This is the first in a new series from Jeremy Robinson having as its main character one of our favorites from the Chess Team series. It is co-written by J. Kent Holloway. 

    The action starts with a high priest from Babylonia moving through the desert to a mountain top to release two creatures. He has kidnapped the grandson of Nebuchadnezzar and intends to offer the boy as a sacrifice to the creatures. King, using an alias, has infiltrated the mercenary army that the high priest has gather. He is going to rescue the boy. King finds out there is more going on than expected. With the boy’s help and an unexpected help of a very famous historical figure, King fights to save the human race. 

    The story pulls one in with each turn of the page. Ancient myths are brought to life. And through it all, King is still King. The hero of mankind. This is a short story I recommended for those who love Jeremy Robinson’s books. I would also recommend it for any who enjoy action/adventure, myths, and ancient cultures. If you haven’t read any of Jeremy Robinson’s book, this is a great one to start with. Another edition to this series is planned for later this year, so read this one now to be prepared.

    WARNING!!! you must read Omega first!!!

    after learning the events of Omega you will love this novella edition of King's escapades in the past.
    reading how he uses his modern training with his not-so-modern weapons is a really neat take on things.
    but at the end of the day King is King, and he is amazing!!!
