Another awesome book by Jeremy & Sean, The Chess team is back together again WOOHOO!!! This book will keep you engaged from start to finish. Fast paced action that does not leave to hanging..
Empire by Jeremy Robinson with Sean Ellis is a full-length story in the Chess Team adventure series. It is an excellent addition to the Chess Team adventures. It’s nice to have a full-length adventure with the Chess Team again. The Chess Team, working on their own, is looking for Tom Duncan. However, they have divided their group with some going one direction and some going after an elusive trail into the Sigler family saga. Co-opted by the US military for assistance in recovery a team that went missing in Russia, they allow themselves to be diverted from their search for Duncan. The team splits up to follow two lines of investigation. This always seems a mistake as it never seems to turn out well for them. Richard Ridley may be dead but isn’t out of the picture. The same can be said of Hercules. They both crop up in this adventure. The revelations in this story are surprising and somewhat shocking. I thoroughly enjoyed the twists and turns of the story. The Chess Team series is one of my favorites. This story does not disappoint. Robinson and Ellis do a great job with character as well as story continuity. If you are following the Chess Team series, you won’t be disappointed with this one. If you haven’t yet tried the Chess Team series, what are you waiting for?
