Publisher's Summary

A small town cop with an unexpected gift. A shadowy government agency on the side of justice. A call no good man could turn away.
When vampires attack David White's small town, only luck, firepower, and the intervention of an elite government task force saves his life. The aftermath of the attack leaves him in the middle of the world's biggest secret: the existence of government agencies that regulate the supernatural.
They insist that David's "luck" is actually a supernatural gift, and he's immediately recruited into ONSET, the most shadowy part of America's thin blue line of police protectors.
Questioning both his gifts and the agency he now serves, David is drawn into an escalating battle that threatens all of humanity. If he isn't what ONSET thinks he is, the entire world may pay the price.

Waiting for Book 2

A seamless blend of military action, magic and human nature. Too often the magic component of a story gets too fluffy and ruins the entire book. Not so here. The occasional emotional moment but in a believable way. Likeable characters with strengths and flaws and enough baddies to keep them on the hop. A great narrator and r-e-a-l-i-s-t-i-c dialogue! Just when I thought the plot was starting to veer toward ordinary there was another surprise and I wanted to hear more. One of the rare occasions where I listened to every word - (yep, right up until the end). I find that most stories run out of puff before the end of the book or worse, involve an unsatisfying ending. I'm looking forward to book 2.

Awesome book

Just get the book it's a great book. If you enjoy Johnathan Maberrys work you will probably like onset. There are a few slow spots but, all around a great book.

An highly enjoyable more mature urban fantasy.

This book is pure enjoyment. I hope to listen to more from Glynn Stewart like Onset 2.

Would make a good TV show

The performance was fine but although I nearly made it to the very end I couldn't manage to force myself through the bad writing. The dialogue is poor and the prose not much better. Usually I can ignore it because of the story (Dresden books are great imo) but this was just too much at times. Yes Sir! seemed to be the most important dialogue in the book and some of the repetitive use of words was just jarring. The worst thing though was the story. There's no antagonist of interest, just a series of let's go here and now let's go there, flying around the world fighting monsters. Honestly, it reads like an author who has spent more time watching Netflix than reading novels and tbh it would make a good sci fi series.
