    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?

    I don't think it could have been, the premise while at first interesting soon became trite and boring. The idea's been done better elsewhere.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Myke Cole again?

    Not based on this book, definately left a bad taste in my mouth.


    What three words best describe Corey Jackson’s performance?

    It was as strong as the story could allow it to be.


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

    It tried.


    Any additional comments?

    Out of the 15 and change hours of material, I honestly gave it till there was only about 3 and a half hours left before I gave up on it. If I had to go through one more "I hate it here, but its my family now and I'm doing good but wait I'm a slave and I need out" teeter totter ride over the course of a single chapter I would have screamed. The main character is whiny, the supporting cast is one dimensional, and the single redeeming character, Marty, is never allowed to develop to anything worthwhile... or if he is, I didn't have the patience to get there. Glad I only spent 4 dollars on this book, even happier I'm on to something better.
