Hmm the title says part 4 but it is part 3.Besides that, this one got me on the edge of my seat, even my dislike for all ESP related stuff got put in the closet, great story, great antagonists, and a lot of fast and furious action, what s not to like An interesting looking look at a world with new powers A thought provoking look at a world changed by new powers and skills i was impressed by how detailed this was thought through from potential actions and counter measures. I am not usually a reader of military sci fi, but this one drew me in because I do love stories about superhuman talents being weilded by all too human people You are pulled in from the beginning, where the protagonist is on a military exercise You soon learn something of the limitations of his abilities, and about the strange world in which he lives It is a version of ours, where the discovery of the drug Starbirth has twisted the train of history into a totally different path Superpowered heros and villains fight a secret war that is not very secret High tech weaponry is used by both sides to spy on and, if possible, limit or neutralise the opposition There are twists and turns, friends become enemies, politicians are only interested in their own advancement, fraught situations are only madeso by the interactions of the personalities involved Much like our own world would be Or maybe it is, and we haven t found out about it yet This is not a book if you re interested in a light read If you enjoy stories with depth of character, quirky people doing weird things, and high tension from the beginning, then I thoroughly recommend it I kept having to stop and take a breath while reading it, just to be able to assimilate and process what was going on Well done I will be reading the two preceding stories in the series, soon. Two kids get stranded in the rain forest and discover an ancient goo This goo gives them magical powers like teleportation and psychic abilities These kids grow up and share the wonders of this magic and are now in the military For some reason I didn t quite catch how the powers have been evolving, so some people can be shape changers and others can make you see things What these people can do just seemed to be decided on a whim to advance the plot A plot I had a hard time finding The needle of a plot in the haystack of unnecessary fluff was an elite fighting force not only do they have magical powers they have killer futuristic technology like invisibility uniforms, mind controls, and communications , well this fighting force faces terrorists that have all the magic they have, boosted by some magical drug I really could not get into this It was about twice the length it needed to be For example you got to enjoy every conversation from the hello to the goodbye You got histories and descriptions of things, sometimes twice I found myself skipping sections as they didn t seem to have a purpose I realize now that this was a 3rd book in the series so I can t give it a 2 because that was my fault, so if you ve read the first 2 books you ll probably love this one too. J.M Johnson brings together science fiction and military adventure in a future so close you can hear it coming on the nightly news Shadow Team is the third book in the Starbirth series I read this book as a stand alone, and then went back to find the rest of the series J.M Johnson drops you into the middle of the action in this stellar adventure, and keeps you there, up close and personal with crises worthy of tomorrow s headlines Our hero, a teleporter named Lock Harford, is a master of dark matter teleportation who combats villains with similar skills Not Harford s mental powers, but his personality makes this future utterly believable The government forms a team, with Harford leading, whose powers don t depend on the illegal drug called Starbirth Immediately, the rookie team embarks upon its mission defend the realm Johnson s storytelling is vivid as Harford s team fights drug mad villains and betrayal at home, with their families at risk Can Harford save a world where Starbirth addiction threatens civilization itself Find out in Shadow Team GB then, as I did, go findbooks in this startlingly good series This book would make a great movie, or, with the others in its series, a terrific TV show. Wow What an imaginative and extremely cleverly written roller coaster ride Lock s gifts and abilities are so utterly believable and well researched that I could imagine this is the direction in which our future is headed It s also a relevant read as it reflects many of the issues currently impacting on our world I m looking forward to reading the rest of the series.Highly recommended.
