Javelin Rain (Shadow Ops [Publication Order] #5) by Myke Cole

Review:

Javelin Rain: A Shadow Ops Novel - Myke Cole

Being a US Navy SEAL was Jim Schweitzer’s life right up until the day he was killed. Now, his escape from the government who raised him from the dead has been coded "Javelin Rain." Schweitzer and his family are on the run from his former unit, the Gemini Cell, and while he may be immortal, his wife and son are not.
 
Jim must use all of his strength to keep his family safe, while convincing his wife he’s still the same man she once loved. Only what his former allies have planned to bring him down could mean disaster not only for Jim and his family, but for the entire nation

 

 

 

 

My Review:

 

Would you believe me if I said I have no idea why I like this book so much? I mean really. I don't like zombies, I don't get the apocalypse stuff, there are a crazy amount of plot holes, some stuff just feels thrown in, I only picked it up because of its cover.

I mean seriously. I love the cover work for this book. That's the only reason I requested it.

However I couldn't put it down once I started it. You get suspense, you get these crazy ass fight scenes, you get the angst/family/tortured hero aspect, you get so much that comes with this book but a lot of it doesn't seem to mesh but you want it anyway. I love the weirdness.

Its the whole Gears of War Dom saying "We're screwed" with bonus the crazy shit in the middle of those pause slow motion moments when you're staring down the scope with a bullseye right between your eyes mixed with a pinch of fairy dust.

Hell considering I don't tend to like these kinds of books I read it twice.

I have to really credit Cole for creating a character and a world that I enjoyed so much despite not liking it at all. Its a winner. My poor broken Itz. Half his story doesn't make sense but I still like it anyway.
