Overview

After a failed mission claims the lives of his five man support team, Stan Tremblay, Callsign: Rook, flees Siberia and finds himself on the secluded coast of Norway, north of the Arctic Circle. Exhausted, cut off from the outside world, and emotionally beaten from his defeat in Russia, Rook just wants to find a place to rest. The small coastal town of Fenris Kystby seems like the perfect place.

Within hours of arriving, he discovers that the town is not as tranquil as it appears. The townspeople are mistrustful of outsiders, a pack of mysterious wolves stalk the local tundra, and two villagers have been killed by a creature that defies explanation. To make things worse, there are rumors of something sinister, something the townspeople refuse to discuss.

Despite the hostility of the locals, Rook commits to stopping the creature murdering townspeople. As the body count rises, he quickly learns that the greatest threat might walk on two legs. And when he uncovers the town's hidden past, Rook knows only one thing for certain: something is rotten in Norway.

I liked this side story with Rook. Would have given it 5 stars if the story went a little deeper into who Stan is as a person; maybe deal w/his conflict a little more, his feelings about Queen, etc... I got more emotion from Peder than Stan. I thought this his time away from the team was to deal w/what happened with his last mission. Didn't happen. Actually, I'm guessing Rook 2 (there may be one already) will finish this story. The book was enjoyable though.

It was great to have a whole story dedicated to Rook, he is such a well written character. I dare anyone not to laugh at some of his one-liners. Another great addition to the Chess Team stories

I have read most of Robinson's books and this is only the second one I have found to be weak. I am thinking that Robinson should not be collaborating with other authors because these novellas written with partners are not nearly up to the standard set in books by Robinson alone. This one had a weak, predictable plot and ends without resolving the bigger questions presented in the story. If they wanted to write a full length book, then they should have done so rather than writing installments in novella form. I am getting really tired of this mediocre writing wasting my time. Either the author has decent plot or he doesn't. If not, he should wait til he does instead of ripping off readers who expect classic Robinson style. All he is doing is hurting his reputation with this crap. Stephanie Clanahan

WARNING: this novella takes place between Threshold & Ragnarok we find Rook disconnected from civilization in B.F.E., Norway in a tiny, all-be-it very strange town. he befriends a local farmer and goes about trying to solve a very big/little problem of theirs, all the while thinking of his teammates back home. this novella with help you understand and appreciate the going-ons at the beginning of Ragnarok even more than you already will.

Wounded warrior Rook, Stan Tremblay, is wandering through Norway after a disastrous mission in Russia where his mission failed and he lost all his men. He isn’t ready to go back to the Chess Team headquarters, even though he knows his teammates are probably concerned about him and may even think he is dead. He’s taking time to heal, but coming events pull him back into battle.  Rook is just trying to find some peace and rest when he stumbles upon a small Norwegian village. The village is totally cut off from the outside world and it villagers are terrified by some type of huge creature. Rook takes on the challenge to help rid the village of threat. While proceeding to do just that, he stumbles upon some old secrets that could lead to even bigger problems than the creature.  Rook is my favorite Chess Team member, so far. He’s a man of action, with a swift temper, but he’s also very kind. He’s the kind of person who gets the job done. This character is engaging. I found I wanted to keep reading just to have more time with Rook. Conspiracy theorists as well as monster lovers, and those that like action/adventure stories are sure to like this short story. I enjoyed it very much and am looking forward to reading the next short story in the series.

Rook finds himself in a creepy town where wolves and a beast roam the woods and something is killing people.  This Call Sign novella, the third in the series and seventh Chess Team story-following Prime, Pulse, Instinct, Threshold, Call Sign: King book 1, and Call Sign: Queen, is my favorite Call Sign novella so far, not to take away from the first two.  I liked them too.  Now, onto Call Sign: Bishop!  Read this book!

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!
