Follow Sean Havens a 20 year veteran black-ops operative as he is challenged in ways that even he doesn't see coming. Thrown into a world that he was once fighting against, Havens is forced to make decisions to protect those that he loves along the way.
Narration for Safe Havens: Shadow Masters was done by Charles Kahlenberg. My only qualm is that the first few chapters were a little fast. I wasn't prepared for that. Normally I start a book at normal speed and progressively speed it up as I get used to the narrators tone and delivery. But this one started out at around a 1.5 (without speeding up). The speed gets better after the first few chapters, but it is still something to watch out for. The narrators voice is perfect for this story/character though. I would definitely listen to another Patten/Kahlenberg audiobook.
I love when a book can grab my attention in the beginning. I love even more when it does this AND won't let it go throughout. That's how I felt while I was reading Safe Havens: Shadow Masters. This genre usually isn't something I read a lot of but I have dabbled from time to time. I tell you what, if all Military/Thriller books were this good, I'd be reading a lot more of them.
Patten's style reminds me of Tom Clancy with slightly more edge, which aren't words to be thrown around lightly. I loved the black ops/covert stuff within, it makes me tingle with excitement when I don't know whats going to happen next.
A few times this reminded me of the Bourne books/movies (some of my all-time favorites in the genre), and others you could tell this was a whole new beast.
I will be on the watch out for J.T. Patten's other books, and I'm really glad that I picked this one up to review.
