Overview

America's most elite soldiers are about to uncover one of history's deadliest secrets....

When a raid on an insurgent safehouse leads to a clue to decoding one of the world's greatest mysteries-the Voynich manuscript-which may contain a recipe for creating the ultimate biological weapon of mass destruction, Delta operator Jack Sigler must forge a new black ops team to avert catastrophe. While bullets fly, he recruits a group of deadly warriors with dangerous secrets, assigning each member a chess piece callsign and dubbing them Chess Team.

But nothing is what it seems...and no one can be trusted. As the search for the truth about the manuscript moves across Asia and into the darkest reaches of human history, Chess Team must battle enemies beyond comprehension-nightmare creatures of myth and perverse creations of science-to preserve a secret as old as life itself.

In 2009, bestselling novelist Jeremy Robinson launched the adventures of Jack Sigler and Chess Team. Now, learn how it all began! Witness Chess Team's beginning as King, Queen, Bishop, Rook, Knight and the elusive Deep Blue come together to form the only military force smart enough and dangerous enough to face the world's most deadly, most high tech and most monstrous threats.

This is definitely my kind of book. It has everything that makes a really good thriller/adventure/military read. I loved the added mythology angle that was backed up by real sites. The science angle was believable and a the human experimentation added to the spine tingling parts. The action starts with the first page and you hardly have time to breath between pages. Robinson takes the reader on a rocket ride of adventure, treachery, treason and death. Each of his characters has special talents. Melding them into a fighting team is King's (Jack) job. In this story you get a lot of background about each team member. How and why the "Chess Team" was formed. Why Jack chose each name. Where Stan got his Desert Eagles. The first time Jack and Zelda met and what happened. How he won her respect and the rest of the teams. The bonds they formed with each other to become the fighting unit they are. Their first mission is to rescue a scientist who can translate an ancient manuscript. She has been kidnapped by unknown persons. The Chess Team follows the bad guys from Afghanistan to Iran and finally to France. They fight the Chinese tong, mutated humans, and unspeakable horrors. Finally in France they face the end of all life and maybe, the end of the planet. This is my first book by Robinson but not my last. I have already got his other Chess Team books on my "to get" list. I wish they were all audio books narrated by Jeffery Kafer. He has a very pleasing voice and gives life to the characters. He gets the dialogue between the team just perfect. Sometimes too perfect. LOL. The production of the audio was perfect. No static, dead spots, or skips. Everything was professional and well recorded. If you have read any of Jeremy Robinson Chess Team books you HAVE to read this one. The start of it all. Audiobook provided for review by the narrator.

Jeremy Robinson pulls off this prequel to the Chess Team novels flawlessly. It was interesting to discover how each team member became involved. Fast paced and as usual, very entertaining. Thank you Mr. Robinson for another great book! ~ DO ~

I very much enjoyed this book.  I've been reading Mr. Robinson's books for years.  It was an interesting turn of of events to now get an "Origins" perspective; even though we've been introduced to bits and pieces in the various novel series.

Prime is an excellent example of a prequel done right. An action-packed story that takes the reader through the wild ride that started everything. Readers of the other 'Chess Team' books will get a kick out it. It's also a great starting point for anyone to start the friendship with Chess Team.

This was an excellent book!  I've read three of the Chess Team books already, and it was good to go back and find out how the team was formed.   Once again Jeremy Robinson does not disappoint!

Not as good as the Kaiji Series or Second World Series but still good. I would probably give it 4 stars and call it great if it was from any other author, but I have come to expect exceptional from Robinson and this just wasn't quite there. The plot seemed secondary to the action. We all love action in a Robinson book but we also want character development via an interesting storyline. There was too little interaction among characters when not in the midst of some sort of battle. Since this prequel was actually written mid-series, I have a feeling the the character development may have happened in previously written books. I plan to find out. Stephanie Clanahan

In the beginning……. This the story of the formation of the Chess Team. This prequel shows where each member of the team came from and how the team members first meet each other.  In this story, a Delta team finds a portion of an ancient manuscript code when they raid a terrorist safe house. This code from the Voynich Manuscript, is a code that has never been broken. The fear is that the terrorists can break the code and will use the manuscript to create a biological weapon. A race is on to stop the terrorists from finding the manuscript first and then stopping the terrorists. A specialist is brought in to break the code. The new team comes together as they follow clues to find Prime. Supposedly the place where life started and where one can create life from nothing using the information in the manuscript. On the way, they run into some very strange creatures and travel to Asia and France.  They just barely save the world from total destruction.  This prequel is an action packed adventure that leaves little time for breathing (and sleep as you won’t want to put the book down). Jeremy Robinson does a very good job keeping the characters within the personalities we know from the Chess Team novellas. If you love Rollins, Woods, Lincoln, Child, this action, adventure, weird creatures, end of the world stories, you will thoroughly enjoy this one.

Meet Deep Blue, King, Queen, Bishop, Rook and Knight for the first time. I wish I could have started with this book. Warning: if you do you won't stop till you read them all. Happy reading. This is for all us Pulp fans that grew up on Doc Savage. Now we are in the 21st century of Pulp.

Jeremy Robinson's Chess Team begins here! This book delivered a good, fast-paced story-action/intrigue laden, with a good splash of sci-fi. You will be drawn to read the rest of the books, but it's an acceptable "curse"! DO IT! DO IT NOW!

In Book Zero (prequel) of the Chess Team saga Jeremy gives us what we all have been asking for, "How did Sigler & company get together?" Well, this is how. Through an array of missions & locations we see how each member is originally "recruited" to the team. We also see where the ruthless Richard Ridley comes from too. If you love the Chess Team adventures then this novel is for you!

Although the subject matter was far fetched I like the Chess Team and find this series very interesting. Onto the next book in the series!
