Publisher's Summary

The Great Reawakening did not come quietly. Across the country and in every nation, people began to develop terrifying powers - summoning storms, raising the dead, and setting everything they touch ablaze. Overnight the rules changed...but not for everyone.
Colonel Alan Bookbinder is an army bureaucrat whose worst war wound is a paper-cut. But after he develops magical powers, he is torn from everything he knows and thrown onto the front-lines. Drafted into the Supernatural Operations Corps in a new and dangerous world, Bookbinder finds himself in command of Forward Operating Base Frontier - cut off, surrounded by monsters, and on the brink of being overrun.
Now, he must find the will to lead the people of FOB Frontier out of hell, even if the one hope of salvation lies in teaming up with the man whose own magical powers put the base in such grave danger in the first place - Oscar Britton, public enemy number one....

Not blown away....As I was after the first install

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Well...Honestly can't say, it's not bad by any means but I just don't really know!


What was one of the most memorable moments of Shadow Ops: Fortress Frontier?

As always Mr Cole do the action segments really well, so any one of those.


Which scene was your favorite?

The siege scenes!


Any additional comments?

IMHO, this installment never reached the suspence levell of the first. If that depends on that I read the first and listened to the second I can't say for sure! The narrator was so-so i.e No William Dufris!

Also I had a tough time getting engrossed in the book, not as much action and suspence.

I will state that in the second half it picks up and I got the "groove" going again!

I will still get the third book cause even though I was a bit disapointed, it's still much better than most of the other Mil Sci-Fi stuff out there.
