    NASA discovered the alien ship lurking in the asteroid belt in the 1960's. They kept the Target under intense surveillance for decades, letting the public believe they were exploring the solar system, while they worked feverishly to refine the technology needed to reach it. Dr. Jane Holloway is content documenting nearly-extinct languages and had never contemplated becoming an astronaut. But when NASA recruits her to join a team of military scientists for an expedition to the Target, it's an adventure she can't refuse.

    Story

    Struggling to finish this, story moves very slowly. Characters do not seem the type to be selected for such an important task.

    "My name is Mike Ross. I'm a Ferryman. I help people with ghost problems, or ghosts with people problems. Funny thing, no one ever helps me with my problems. Civil War ghosts bent on killing me, Skinwalkers who just want my body, and a vindictive spirit linked both to my bloodline and my destiny... It turns out the dead still hold a good deal of influence over the world, and they don't want to give it up. I'm in way over my head. Fortunately, I'm too stubborn to quit."

    Story

    Plausibility of the story is a stretch at times. Not sure with so many ghost around and their shenanigans the living would not notice.

    Prince Roger is coming home, but home isn't what it was when he left. Traitors have murdered his brother and sister, his nieces and nephews. His mother, the empress, is still alive but in the hands of Roger's own biological father, who controls her through drugs and physical and psychological torture. A new heir to the throne has been conceived, and once the child is born his mother will no longer be necessary to the traitors' plans.

    Douglas says: "Great Ending To A Great Series"

    Story

    The conclusion of a nice trilogy, it's more of the same as the two previous books. A good entertaining swashbuckling adventure. Easy listening for when you just want to relax with a nice fast paced story.

    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.

    Eugene says: "get on with it"

    Story
    Would you try another book from Myke Cole and/or Corey Jackson?

    Not likely another book by the author, can't fault the narrator for the material.


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

    Story premise had potential maybe a more capable author could do something with the universe.


    Any additional comments?

    This is painful to listen to, the protagonist is whiny and immature more akin to an adolescent than some one that is supposed to lead people. It's a battle of wills to listen to this audio book to completion.
