    It starts with a thunderous crack and a flash of light. Screams come next. Then the hunters. With a staccato flicker, light disappears and everything within a hundred-yard radius goes with it. All that remains is a massive crater where a chunk of the world has gone missing. As the deadly phenomenon repeats and expands amidst the world's most densely populated cities, Jack Sigler, Callsign: King, and his black ops team take action. But the team is broken, spread across the globe, and vulnerable.

    What did you love best about Ragnarok: A Jack Sigler Thriller?

    Another awesome adventure with the Chess Team!!! It has everything you've come to expect with one of three books and I am very glad I read all the novellas between the last full novel and this one. If you haven't, you really should. Excellent book!!

    Jeffrey Kafer has a fantastic way of bringing the book to life. I love his interpretations of the characters, especially Rook, who continuously cracks me up.

    In all the days since my kidnapping, breaking and transformation into a hunter at the hands of the half-human, half-demon Nephilim, my life has been a mass of chaotic actions and reactions to the horrors of the Antarctic underworld. I have battled unnatural monsters, fled for my life, and sacrificed everything - or thought I had, when I stepped through the gates of Tartarus. Every choice I have made was in response to forces beyond my control, lacking any kind of direction.

    This series of books just keep getting better. The battle for Earth is about to begin and I can't wait to go along for the ride! I listened to this via Audible and RC Bray is an amazing author who brings the characters to life.

    "I was 13 years old when I was kidnapped. They took me from my family, from my friends-from everything I knew, and stole my innocence. They brought me to a world beneath the surface of Antarctica, where I was broken and trained by a hunter named Ninnis. He served the ancient Nephilim: half-human, half-demon monsters."

    What about R. C. Bray’s performance did you like?

    RC Bray has an amazing talent at bringing Sol and all the other characters to life. The supernatural voices are fantastic and it sometimes feels like you are watching a movie


    Any additional comments?

    While I can't tell you exactly what it was about this instalment that I liked even more than the first one, I can indeed tell you that I enjoyed this one much more. Just enough action to keep the pages turning, some happiness for poor Sol after some years of terror, and an ending that made me want to cry and get straight into the next in the series. Very very good!

    "I've been told that the entire continent of Antarctica groaned at the moment of my birth. The howl tore across glaciers, over mountains and deep into the ice. Everyone says so. Except for my father; all he heard was Mother's sobs. Not of pain, but of joy, so he says. Other than that, the only verifiable fact about the day I was born is that an iceberg the size of Los Angeles broke free from the ice shelf a few miles off the coast."

    RC Bray is an amazing narrator, who brings Sol and the other characters even more to life than I imagined possible. I was really impressed with the different voices he uses, and the extra effort he took to make them supernatural.

    What does Jeffrey Kafer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    As always, Jeffrey Kafer brings the characters and story to life in such a way that you feel like you're really there.


    Any additional comments?

    It was such a pleasure to read this book and see the origins of the Chess Team that we have come to know and love. Every time one of the team was introduced into the story, you feel a slight thrill at knowing where this path was going to take them. It's certainly enough to make me want to go back and read them all again. One of the benefits of this book is that you can read it first (as, chronologically, it is first), or read it after "Omega", to see where everything began (the way the books were written).

    What I love about Jeremy Robinson's books (and Prime is a 'prime' example of this), is how well he manages to link historical and/or scientific subjects that you never would have conceived of linking. I believe that he does a lot of research on these subjects, so he must be a pretty damn knowledgeable person by now. And whether the facts are perfectly correct or whether there's a great deal of artistic licence employed, you just don't care. Because the ride that you are taken on is just so much damn fun! An exciting, action-packed fun read that you will enjoy immensely.

    Jack Sigler, Callsign: King, field leader for a black ops organization known as Endgame, is accustomed to feeling capable of handling most any situation. But the introduction of Asya, a sister he never knew existed, and the kidnapping of his parents has him reeling. King and his "Chess Team" scour the planet for his parents, tracking a man known to the world as Alexander Diotrephes, but known to King by another name. The legendary Hercules is alive, well and plotting something beyond imagining--something that will affect 2,000 years of history.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Omega: A Jack Sigler Thriller to be better than the print version?

    Yes, actually!!! I had already read Omega last year and thought it couldn't be topped, but I was wrong... Jeffrey Kafer has an amazing talent that brings both the story and the characters to life!


    Any additional comments?

    I am utterly speechless having finished this book! It was amazing!!! You would never expect where it takes you (well, I certainly didn't), and I'm thrilled to hear that Jeremy Robinson will continue to write more Chess Team adventures, as this one really wrapped up the storylines of the previous books. I've always loved Rook and his sense of humour, but this time around, Jack and Alexander win the comedy award; many of their scenes together reminiscent of a good buddy cop movie. I can honestly say that this was the BEST Chess Team book so far - the only one to make me laugh, cry and have to remind myself to breathe. Awesome awesome work, Mr Robinson and Mr Gilmour - just awesome!!!!

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    In this very exciting third instalment of the Chess Team, Jack has just been officially named as foster father to young Fiona, the girl he found at the Siletz Reservation in the previous book. When she is kidnapped, Jack is hard on her trail, and the rest of Chess Team is split up to find (and kidnap) the remaining speakers of very old, almost forgotten languages, as they seem to be the target of some evil mastermind. Lots of old faces show up (some good, some not-so-good), and there's also a lot of surprises along the way. Once again, the novel is action-packed, funny, sad, filled with crazy characters and weird monsters, and an absolute delight to read. Can't wait to start on the novellas before the next book comes out soon! (Read 9 June 2012)

    Listened to on Audible (14 May 2014). Even better the second time around, and it's interesting to note clues littered throughout the book, that I only notice now that I know where the series has gone. Jeffrey Kafer is an amazing narrator and brings all the characters to life in a fantastic way!
