A decent first book in a new series of action-adventure titles. I really enjoyed the relationship between Danny and Joe and found the idea of an Inuit lead character to be rather unique. If you like stories about GI JOE or Metal Gear or even Call of Duty, you will probably really like this action-packed story. It hardly takes a breath!
