    Myfanwy Thomas awakes in a London park surrounded by dead bodies. With her memory gone, her only hope of survival is to trust the instructions left in her pocket by her former self. She quickly learns that she is a Rook, a high-level operative in a secret agency that protects the world from supernatural threats. But there is a mole inside the organization - and this person wants her dead.

    Myke Cole is an expert at ratcheting up suspense and delivering pulse-pounding adventure that leaves audiences breathless. In Shadow Ops: Control Point, the world has seemingly gone mad. People are waking up with magical powers, such as the ability to raise the dead or call forth storms. The only thing staving off a plunge into chaos is the Supernatural Operations Corps, headed by Oscar Britton. But when Oscar exhibits a power of his own, the hunter becomes the hunted.

    What disappointed you about Control Point?

    Got tired of the plot dragging and the characters contstant whining. It was a struggle just to get through it. If it wasn't on audio, I would have never finished it.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Myke Cole again?

    No


    Have you listened to any of Corey Jackson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Good concept. Plenty of potential


    Any additional comments?

    Poorly executed by author

    Story
    (5013)

    Druid Atticus O’Sullivan hasn’t stayed alive for more than two millennia without a fair bit of Celtic cunning. So when vengeful thunder gods come Norse by Southwest looking for payback, Atticus, with a little help from the Navajo trickster god Coyote, lets them think that they’ve chopped up his body in the Arizona desert. But the mischievous Coyote is not above a little sleight of paw, and Atticus soon finds that he’s been duped into battling bloodthirsty desert shape-shifters called skinwalkers.

    Nicholas says: "Hooked in an Instant"
    "love this entire series."

    Has Tricked turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    Would you be willing to try another one of Luke Daniels’s performances?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    I really like how he cannot use magic to solve every problem. He has to think. Also like the interplay between the Atticus and Oberon
