There's something really badly wrong with me An example I'm at the climax of a horrifically graphic battle scene where Jim Schweitzer ex SEAL and current super zombie on the run from a secret government cell is desperately trying to protect his wife and child from magic wielding mercenaries who have come to take him back or take him down Schweitzer's wife is fighting for her life but another mercenary has her in his sights Schweitzer acts In the sudden silence he gazes at the body of the man who tried to rip lightning out of the sky and use it to fry Sarah And my brain immediately goes He's dead Jim But here's the truly amazing thing about Javelin Rain even with my brain inserting lyrics from Star Trekkin at inopportune moments the book still managed to be nail bitingly suspenseful gut wrenching horrific sad and bittersweet in turn One of the things I love about Myke Cole is that when it comes to magic he doesn't do pretty and he doesn't do nice His zombies are no exception Unlike the rest of the Operators in Gemini Cell Schweitzer may still have his mind but his face is sheet metal stretched over skull his eyes are glowing silver orbs shining out from empty sockets His body shows marks from all previous battles carelessly stitched and duct taped to hold it all together Death has irrevocably changed him It's life Jim but not as we know it Throughout the story Schweitzer struggles to come to terms with the fact that while consciousness remains his life is over He can never be a father to his son never take him to soccer practice never take his wife out to dinner Even as he risks all to protect them there are heartbreaking moments where even his loved ones treat him as the monster he is in so many ways Javelin Rain is a little bit hard to characterize in terms of plot It's a second book a things fall apart book in which Schweitzer sets himself in direct opposition to Gemini Cell It's a fugitive's story a chase a series of desperate last stands But it's also a love story An increasingly creepy violent love story because the longer Schweitzer stays dead the of his humanity he loses If you read my reviews you probably know by now that I don't do romance but love stories aren't necessarily romances They're not about passion; they're about commitment about compromises about trust about two alien people trying to create something together Throw in the fact that one member of the couple has veins of glycerol and is steadily losing his last vestiges of humanity the other has a small child with a bad case of poison ivy and they're both on the run from a relentless military black ops military organization and the love story really takes on a uniue flavor As one character puts it Magic is like cancer You don't ask for it and it changes everythingSchweitzer and Sarah's story is not the only plot running through the book but it was definitely my favourite Perhaps half the pagetime is from the perspective of other members of Gemini Cell including Eldredge the chief scientist of the cell and Jawid and Dadou the sorcerers responsible for creating zombie beings like Schweitzer I found the JawidDadou subplot deeply and troublingly problematic Jawid the only Muslim character in the book is a naive simpleton who parrots repressive religious dogma and wants nothing than to own a wife and family Religious simpleton characters irritate me in general and to have Jawid the only Muslim character in the story left a bad taste in my mouth Dadou who has a history of abuse and sexual assault uses her own sexuality to cynically dominate those around her mostly because her higher command orders her to do so something that isn't really dealt with in the story I wanted to empathize with her and certainly her story is tragic but she makes it awfully difficult My other major complaint with the story is that a bunch of major plot elements didn't make sense view spoilerLet's see 1 Why on earth would binding zombies into living beings make them obedient As far as I can tell the Obedient Zombie Track Record is nil one of them is running operations one of them ran away and the rest run wild Why would an intelligent zombie be biddable Wouldn't it have everything it wanted already Eually why would such a living zombie be reliable a known uantity a puppet2 On the same note if Dadou really had the power to grab Sarah out of the soul cyclone then she already had complete power to make Silvers and to make living zombies From the first book and from this one we know the major problem is that the souls that come out of the vortex are just too strong Yet if she really has the power to pick and choose she could choose a weak soul weak enough to be defeated by the Silver 3 On that note the Soul Vortex When I read it I couldn't accept the vortex as the only end in the narrative because it's so damned depressing Plus harking back to Dadou's ability to yank anyone and everyone out of the whirlpool it would mean that literally anyone could be used after death Including Dadou Do I smell a seuel Personally I'd rather the vortex be a single stop on the way to eternity or eternal nothingness4 Why on earth would Eldredge give up the knife Surely it would be better spent protecting Patrick because5 If Sarah really wanted release why couldn't she just go Wasn't staying the hard part It's not like the merc wanted her there From what we know of the whole shared soul bit leaving is easy It's staying that's hard So why didn't Sarah leave rather than be bait hide spoiler

REVIEW ✓ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Ï Myke Cole

I Cell and while he may be immortal his wife and son are not   Jim must use all of his strength to keep his family safe while convincing his wife he’s still the same man she once loved Only what his former allies have planned to bring him down could mean disaster not only for Jim and his family but for the entire natio. Eh I really enjoyed Cole's first few books but this one was just unnecessarily macho Lots of action lots of talk about protecting women lots of non white characters who die I don't think I'll read the next


Javelin Rain Reawakening Trilogy #2Ved immediately by any and all means necessary no matter what the cost   Being a US Navy SEAL was Jim Schweitzer’s life right up until the day he was killed Now his escape from the government who raised him from the dead has been coded Javelin Rain Schweitzer and his family are on the run from his former unit the Gemin. First of all The Shadow Ops books are automatic buys for me and if you follow my ranting reviews you should have already read this series and I will not spoil any of you slow arses who haven't yet so thereMyke Cole's world and storytelling gets tighter better and bad ass with each book and how the HELL that's possible is beyond me It is the perfect storm the balance between strong well developed fantasy and sheer fist pumping badassness that's not a word I'm on a roll I don't care Even though it is the middle book in this current trilogy it really doesn't in my opinion suffer from middle book syndrome matter of fact I think it is among if not his current best bookYes I am a unabashed fan and not objective at all but if you want a terrific read for the upcoming summer months go buy all the Shadow Ops books give this man MONEY He has stories to tell and wargame stuff to buy A strong 27 out of 5 stars from me common core math
