As good as the rest, maybe
Reviewed in the United States on October 21, 2021
This is a Lone Wolf story and in some respects it is sort of like a Tyrus Rechs story, but lacks the violence and Soren Voss reads less like a hero and more like a hapless whiner. Something about him just annoyed me to no end. Whereas all the books in this universe are centered on visceral violence and duty to the Legion or their friends, this deals with the black Ops side of things and wasn't as enjoyable.
It is still a good story, but to me in making Soren more human and relatable, we lost some of the superhero elements that make a great character in these books. Soren feels like a hapless lover with no charisma and is a by the book guy, yet he works for Nether Ops which we all know has no book and no moral code.
It just seemed an odd pairing. I expected more out of this book because it was Nether Ops and instead I got less.
