Nothing means more to US Navy SEAL Jim Schweitzer than protecting his loved ones, but when an enemy brings the battle to his door, he is overwhelmed and taken down. It should be the end of the story. But Jim is raised from the dead by a sorcerer and recruited by a secret unit known only as the Gemini Cell.
With powers he doesn't understand, Jim is called back to duty - as the ultimate warrior....

"A chilling, enthralling story. Myke Cole just might be a wizard himself." (Ann Aguirre)
I thought that this would be a really great story but it was not! It was clunky and you almost didn't have to read it to find out what was coming as it was so bad!
Great narration but rubbish story
I loved the basis of the story, the dead soldier linked with a djinn and acting as super-soldier. Unfortunately the story makes little to no sense with massive jumps in logic that defy common sense (boyfriend hasn't arrived when he said he would and so has obviously been murdered and you're next) and people's opinions change all the time as well (he knows his wife is alive one moment and thinks her dead the next).
As for the narration, he has no skill in doing voices nor offering any impression of emotion and leaves the whole story blank and lifeless.
One to avoid unfortunately.
Odd, thrilling and tender.
The wife, powerful, fun and interesting! Enjoyed the story from her perspective.
