After a terrorist attack on a reservation in Oregon leaves thousands dead, Jack Sigler, call sign King and his Chess Team- Queen, Rook, Bishop and Knight-must protect the only survivor, thirteen year-old Fiona Lane.But the attack is part of a larger offensive. Around the world the last speakers of ancient languages are being systematically exterminated. As they fight to find the mastermind behind the killings, the team is hunted by strange creatures that defy explanation-living statues, genetically modified monsters and walking megaliths-sent by an enemy from their past. If not stopped, he will be able to remake himself, and the world.Jeremy Robinson's third book in the Chess Team series is a rocket-powered thriller, combining high adrenaline action, smart science, ancient legends, and stunning locations.
In Robinson's wildly inventive third Chess Team adventure (after Instinct), the U.S. president, Tom Duncan, joins the team in mortal combat against an unlikely but irresistible gang of enemies, including "regenerating capybara, Hydras, Neanderthals, [and] giant rock monsters." Special ops team leader Jack Sigler, call sign King, has two major tasks: leading his extraordinary compatriots (Queen, Rook, Bishop, Knight) into action and protecting his 12-year-old Native American foster daughter, Fiona Lane. When Fiona is kidnapped during an attack on Fort Bragg, N.C., King swings into action, intent on bringing her home. Aided by Hercules (yes, that Hercules), King proves once again up to the task. Final events point to a continuation of the ongoing struggle to save mankind. Video game on a page? Absolutely. Fast, furious unabashed fun? You bet. (Apr.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
