We see a more human side to Chase as he trys to come to terms with who he is and why he does what he does. There's interesting conflict between him and Nina and also with his family. Nice to see these new charcters introduced. Eddie's grandmother will make you laugh out loud.
The baddies are all suitably evil and the story is extremely interesting. The legend / myth of King Arthur is explored deeply and you'll be surprised at what's real and what isn't.
As usual, there's also lots of humour amongst the action. A big lorry has just been taken by Eddie and his exit line is, "Let's truck off". If you can't laugh at that then maybe you should check your pulse to see if you're alive.
As action / adventure books go this is another superb effort. Andy knows want he wants and what his readers want and he delivers in style.
Thanks again, Andy!
It's not essential, but I'd advise starting at the start of this line of books as they have the same character all the way through them and gives you more of a back story.
after you read this, you'll want to read the next book
Hugely enjoyable, easy to read & any fan of Andy McDermott or any fan of action books at all should read this.
Probably better to read the books in order though & make sure you read the other books in this series first.

Given that there were again references back to Atlantis (one fairly significant) and Hercules, what I interpreted to be a link to the next novel and a teaser ending I sense some broader story arc / thread emerging. So, I'm looking forward to the next books.
