Rating: 5/5 stars
I got an eGalley of this book to review through NetGalley. This is the fifth book in the MHI series and follows a side character rather than the MHI crew. I really enjoyed it, it was action packed and incredibly engaging.
This book follows the story of the mysterious Agent Franks. Franks is sworn to protect humanity as part of a mysterious contract, the government only has to comply with stipulation…never create another being like Franks. Then project Nemesis is revealed and Franks’ contract is off. Now Franks is a wanted man trying to fight against an ages old enemy.
Most of the book is told from Franks’ perspective. We do hear some from other characters as well. The story is mainly a showdown between Franks and the head of Unicorn. Each chapter starts with a flashback to a time in Frank’s past, which was incredibly interesting.
I really enjoyed learning about Franks, we find out a lot more about what he is and how he came to work for the government.
Our normal MHI crew is absent for most of the book. Although we do see some of Earl’s girlfriend, the werewolf Heather. Still Frank’s story does tie in with the overall story of the Old Ones and the prophecies surrounding Owen Pitt.
As with all of this series there is a ton of action and tons of guns and violence. A lot of the violence is very explicit…so just FYI if that bothers you. The whole story is very well written, easy to read, and incredibly engaging. I loved this book just as much as all of the other MHI books.
Overall I strongly recommend this whole series to those who love action-packed urban fantasy with a bit of a horror theme to it. These are really fun and exciting reads. They are very well written and incredibly engaging. I love that they all have a main story that is resolved and this story ties into a much larger story. Highly recommended to all urban fantasy fans.
