Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Praise for Gemini Cell
 
“The best novel [Cole’s] written so far...A military fantasy that combines intense personal anguish with elements of actual horror.”—Tor.com
 
“Myke Cole’s novels are like crack: they’re highly addictive, and this one is no exception.”—Buzzfeed

“Character-rich and action-driven–a Molotov cocktail of human weaknesses and superhuman abilities.”–-Robin Hobb, author of Fool’s Assassin

“Intense and explosive–Cole tells a hell of a story.”—Mark Lawrence, international bestselling author of The Liar’s Key

All that conflict can wear a guy out. Thank goodness for fantasy novels, comic books, late-night games of Dungeons & Dragons, and lots of angst-fueled writing.

Mike Cole continues the story of undead SEAL Jim Schweitzer in Javelin Rain, fifth of his "Shadow Ops" books but the second chronologically. Cole maintains the brisk action combined with explorations of PTSD and the moral dilemmas faced by all the participants, willing and unwilling, in armed conflict. More backstory of the mysterious Entertech corporation is revealed, along with a few peeks behind the curtain at who's really pulling the strings. Schweitzer's journey through his undeath includes both victories and defeats, brief triumphs and devastating setbacks. "Javelin Rain" has a satisfying conclusion for a book that forms the middle of a trilogy, but come the last page, it's clear Schweitzer's work remains unfinished. The next volume, "Siege Line", is forthcoming.
