    War comes home to the Sol system when the Drasin track a human ship back to Earth, with devastating consequences. Facing massive force of invading alien ships wielding terrible power, the crew of the NAC spacecraft, their allies, and the people of Earth must mount a desperate effort to stop them. Doomed from the start, but with nowhere to retreat, Captain Eric Weston commits his ship to the defense of the human race even as the human outposts in Sol system fall one by one before the unrelenting Drasin onslaught.

    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This is one of those books that I couldn't put down. I got really annoyed with the way things were explained over and over, and so many cliches! Regardless, I found myself coming back for more. The story makes me want to know what happens next.

    The Great Reawakening did not come quietly. Across the country and in every nation, people began to develop terrifying powers - summoning storms, raising the dead, and setting everything they touch ablaze. Overnight the rules changed...but not for everyone. Colonel Alan Bookbinder is an army bureaucrat whose worst war wound is a paper-cut. But after he develops magical powers, he is torn from everything he knows and thrown onto the front-lines.

    Andrew says: "Exciting and fast paced."

    It really feels like two different people wrote the story... That is, if you didn't notice the transition. While Myke Cole drastically improved the story telling in the story, you can still tell the transition. I just wish Myke Cole had the time for the first half to be re-done in the same style as the ending to this 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.

    Story
    Any additional comments?

    The concept of a government-regulated magical department showed such great promise, but sadly fizzled. The main character is an officer that is at once perceptive and idiotic, making the worst possible decisions throughout the story. The story never explains the reasoning of the government enough to justify the main character's or other side character's actions. The most infuriating part is, unfortunately, the main character's insistance on making such bad decisions that you'd think he was a teenager instead of an educated individual with a bachelor's degree and classes on decesion-making and leadership.
