Jack Walker is back in action although in an alternate reality. After his team is attacked and killed by creatures he once believed were myth, he is recruited by The Orginazation (possible spoilers), a government group that does not exist but is tasked to control "infestations" of creatures that are very real yet mankind believes to be myths, stories that are told to frighten children. If you are a John O'Brien fan of his A NEW WORLD series you will be pleased to know that Red Team consists of those same members, each recruited because of their encounter with a different creature of myth, for the most part also being the lone survivors of attacks on their teams. After extensive training they are tasked with returning back to the location where Jack lost his team to remove the same pack of creatures that Jack barely survived. His former team were good but did not know what they faced, this time Jack's new team is fully aware of what they will be going up against, but even armed with that knowledge might not be enough to take them down.
I read the book but listening to it is like discovering an old friend expecially when you hear the banter between them. Mark Gagliardi captures the essence of this new-old team perfectly once again.
Mr. O'Brien has the beginning of a great new series and I am really looking forward to what else Jack and Red team are going to face.

Even though the premise has been done before, it held a lot of promise. Unfortunately, the execution was not there. Sometimes the use of 1st person narrative can be tricky and it just didn’t work here. And the narrator was very sterile in his delivery. Not much variation. He sounds like a newscaster not the character from the book.
