    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 could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    a better author who actual understood the military.


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

    I like the basis idea, magic being used as a weapon and controlled by the military, a shadow group using magic that is considered illegal in this world... the ideas were good, but the execution was terrible.


    Any additional comments?

    It was obvious from the first chapter that this author had no clue about the military structure, or how/why it functions. At first I was willing to overlook some of that due to the basic story idea, but listening to the main character constantly whine about everything really wore on me. I kept hoping that it would get better, the main character would put on his big boy pants and stop whining. I eventually stopped listening with 2 hours 14 minutes left. Just where you can tell the big battle is about to start, I couldn't take the self pity and whining any longer.
