Gemini Cell: By Myke Cole



US Navy SEAL Jim Schweitzer is a consummate professional, a fierce warrior, and a hard man to kill. But when he sees something he was never meant to see on a covert mission gone bad, he finds himself—and his family—in the crosshairs. Nothing means more to Jim than protecting his loved ones, but when the enemy brings the battle to his front door, he is overwhelmed and taken down.

That should be the end of the story. But Jim is raised from the dead by a sorcerer and recruited by a top secret unit dabbling in the occult, known only as the Gemini Cell. With powers he doesn’t understand, Jim is called back to duty—as the ultimate warrior. As he wrestles with a literal inner demon, Jim realizes his new superiors are determined to use him for their own ends and keep him in the dark—especially about the fates of his wife and son…

The fact of the matter is that Myke Cole is a fantastic author who gets better with every book he writes.

Control Point was fast paced, full of action, and had an interesting take on magic in the military. Of course, while all of Cole's books contain these attributes, (Gemini Cell being no exception) what Cole has improved dramatically with every book are his storytelling and his character development.

To that end, Gemini Cell is his most impressive book yet.

In Gemini Cell, Cole has gone out of his way to create a compelling strong willed yet complex protagonist in Jim Schweitzer that reader readers will love. But Cole doesn't stop there, as he uses his impressive array of talent to further develop Jim, showing his fear of this new world that was forced upon him, his struggle against his new foes and allies, and his ultimate decision and resolve of what is most important to him.

Of course through all of this another aspect of Cole's writing that sets him apart is his ability to describe as well as invoke emotions. The anxiety, the depression, and the longing that Cole depicts with crystal clarity is all sensationally done.

All in all Cole has taken his books from being fun exciting reads to the level of fine craftsmanship in writing, in creating this fantastic novel. Now that said, Gemini Cell is still filled with mystery, magic, more action then you can shake a stick at, and a fascinating new take on zombies. In summary, Gemini Cell is a fantastic book and Cole a superb writer who I eagerly anticipate new books from.
