Publisher's Summary

Jack Sigler, Callsign: King, has been a lot of things in his life. A soldier, a father, a hero. But now he's taking up a new title: guardian.
After a life fighting billionaire madmen, terrorists, and unnatural threats, he's stuck thousands of years in the past, using his knowledge of history and modern warfare to right wrongs and stand up for those in need.
When he meets a 12-year-old boy - the prince of the Babylonian Empire - who is to be sacrificed to the ancient goddess Tiamat by a twisted High Priest, King steps in, sword swinging. But what starts as a simple snatch-and-grab, quickly turns into a pitched battle against a legion of men and hideous creatures. As Tiamat rises from her ancient resting place, the fate of the world - and King's future - is at stake.
Trapped millennia in the past and gifted with regenerative abilities, King must live out the centuries until he returns to his own time and his family. The Jack Sigler Continuum series tells the events that occurred in King's life as a result of the full-length novel, Omega, but no prior reading is required to enjoy the Continuum series. Each story will be a standalone adventure, and a great jumping-on point.

What the Critics Say

"Rocket-boosted action, brilliant speculation, and the recreation of a horror out of the mythologic past, all seamlessly blend into a rollercoaster ride of suspense and adventure." (James Rollins, New York Times best-selling author of The Eye of God)

HOW MANY TIMES CAN A MAN DIE IN ONE DAY?

Orion
The main character reminds me of Orion of the Ben Bova series. While there was plenty of action and weird Scorpion Men, I just could not get into this. I don't know if it is Jack Sigler, The Chess Team or Holloway, but this just falls flat.

Kafer is always good.

The answer to the question is no one knows. In the first half hour he died three times. It got old before the story even got started.

- Jim "The Impatient" "My taste differs from kid books to gory horror books."

Fantastic!

What a great, fun listen. I honestly could not stop listening. Lots of action and extremely well written. Robinson & Holloway are a fascinating combination. I would strongly recommend listening to the other Chess Team/ Jack Sigler Thrillers before picking this one up as it does have some major spoilers that happen in those, however, if you don't mind spoilers go ahead and get this. I can guarantee you will not be sorry.

Jeffrey Kafer is King, I can't imagine anyone else voicing him now. Even when I read, in my mind when King speaks, it's Kafer's voice I hear. He goes a fantastic job of bringing the story alive, how he manages all those difficult pronunciations is beyond me. A first class performance.
