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.
Scrambling to make sense of the violent disappearances and fighting to reunite, the team comes face to face with an otherworldly enemy. Taking the battle to the ends of the Earth - and beyond - the team combats a savage enemy whose centuries-old plan for mankind has nearly reached fruition. If they fail, the planet will become little more than a fully stocked food cache.

You bet..just to catch anything I missed the first time! Jeremy Robinson does it again!! From start to finish, an action-packed, edge of your seat thriller! The Chess Team members are called once again to combat a new terror that threatens the existence of man and takes the team not only around the world but into a new dimension. This one is a Chess Team fan must read!!
Jeremy never fails to create a story I can become completely engrossed in. His characters are not static but continue to grow and change with each new challenge. I have read each of the books in this series and I cannot wait for the next. So often in this genre reoccurring characters are stereotypes. Not in Jeremy’s books! As a woman, I love that he offers up strong female characters in his books. Not just kick butt..and oh they are, but wonderfully written characters I can cheer for! Then again… all of his characters walk right off the page!
Of course Jeremy’s imagination is rivaled by none! He never fails to create new challenges for this team that blow me away! Still wiping virtual white goo off myself!! As always he leaves us wanting for more. Grab a cup of coffee, a cozy spot and settle in for a great read!
Honestly there are a few I might compare it too..but I won't because his character development is so much better than most in the genre! I was so thrilled that I did not find static characters in his work!
Hmmm...I love Queen..but I think Bishop is the one I enjoyed the most in this book! Kafer did a wonderful job with the accents!!
Perhaps at the end..but I won't give that away!
Cannot wait for the next one!!
I finished this past novel in a day. I can't get off the adrenaline boost I get from listening to it while I do my daily chores and as I ride around town. I can't wait. I must get the next one. NOW!
Less description of killing Dire Wolves, and more plot
The majority of the story is "fighting descriptions" with little plot and few unexpected twists
He is a very good performer. I have NO complaints with it.
Disappointment in the little plot and character development.
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.
I think this is the best book in the Chess Team stories so far. The team is back together, fighting other worldly creatures to save the world. I couldn't stop listening. Kafer is on fine form.
I'm half way through this book and it is boring me to tears, there is no real plot to the story they are just jumping around.
yes, everyone has a off day
the narrator was ok
I do not recommend buying this book
a different person to read it....
no, I found it boring, perdictable ending....YAWN!
I won't buy any of their books again...
I just had a hard time with this book. I could overlook the space aliens, the shifts in time from Viking era to modern day, the techo-babble about weapons. But the story line was incredible, as in strained my credibility. I gave up about the point where a former US president was revealed as the leader of a super-secret, transnational, ex-Delta force squad. It was just too much.
“Favorite authors- Nevada Barr, Craig Johnson, Louise Penny. Narrators, Marguerite Gavin, Barbara Rosenblat, George Guidall, Ralph Cosham.”
If the characters were fleshed out and a plot was added.

all of them
