Publisher's Summary

Combat is literally her middle name. Chimeric Adaptive Enhanced Combat Operator - but now Caeco Jensen - works for the FBI, building a new life and trying to learn from a painful past. It’s hard to fit in when you are one of a kind, but maybe, just maybe, there’s a place for her in this world. That is, if threats from off planet don’t ruin it first. Forging and protecting a new future with a her unique skillset won’t be easy, maybe almost as hard as making new friends.

Every time...

Honestly, each time John changes up the MC for a novel I think, "this is the shark", each time I am more than happy to be wrong.

C.A.E.C.O is different, while we know her and have a good idea about what her abilities are she is still finding her way and trying to fit in. Her abilities help to show what her team thinks about her, feelings that are enhanced because of their fear and distrust of her because of those abilities. She has her allies, but still feels excluded. Similar to how Declan felt during HAMMER OF GOD, reinforcing the reason why they were together in the beginning while also showing why they aren't now. This is a part of John's writing that draws me in, subtle references to thoughts and feelings from previous books. Instead of 3 pages devoted to telling you to remember, subtle cues bring back the memories.

Unlike ROGUES this feels like it could be the first "backdoor pilot" of THE DEMON ACCORDS, I would really love to see more books following Caeco Jensen. If I could have one... minor grumble, I'd like to "see" more of her enhancements during combat. This girl has claws! She shouldn't just use them to climb or cut tape. Plus I'm sure there are some other goodies tucked away in the Jensen Suite of Tricks. Her mother does good work.

Again, thank you for another adventure John, we definitely have an 'Avenger' ready to join the team for the coming battle, hope there are more to come. I'll say it again, I'd read books on paint drying if you wrote them but I'm always grateful for another DA novel.

Another awesome addition to series

I have to admit I bit leery about the this book. But I should have known... C.A.E.C.O. is definitely a character with much more depth than I imagined easily able to stand on her own as a main character. I'm excited to see how the addition of the Chinese agent will enhance the series more. I absolutely love this series above every other and can't wait to see what's next.

No

I don't think anybody wanted her to get a redemption arc, especially after last book. I still hate her

Not my cup of tea

Bottom line up front: the character known as CAECO is just boring. While she has awesome abilities, she is basically a human robot, and lets face it...that’s just BORING. Androids, or characters that behave like androids, are usually better cast as the interesting sidekick. Stories that have the Android in the leading role rarely do well. I think this particular story would have been far more interesting if it were from the perspective of agent Mitchell or agent Jan; or better yet, from Stasia’s point of view. Who wants to listen to the inner workings of a computer’s mind? James, please put CAECO back where she belongs; as the weird quirky afterthought of a sidekick.

Usual Conroe/Cronin Excellence

This next bit of the story is written in the usual considered manner of the previous Demon Accord issues.
Enjoyed it thoroughly. So will you.

Great!

Another good book in a good series. If you have listened so far you know what to expect. Caeco and her new boss go looking for Vorsook hijinks ensue. I dont get the Caeco hate from the negative reviews. She is better written than Stacia as MC in Rogues. Omega is present throughout with guest appearances of Declan and company. The one knock I have is JPC doesnt really have a unique voice for Caeco. It's slight enough I had trouble telling who was talking from time to time.

Conroe and Cronin are THE BEST!!

I wasn't sure I would be interested in a novel that focused on a secondary character like Caeco, but I was so wrong. Another winner!!

C.A.E.C.O IS not worthy of Mr conroe

I've read and listened to every book multiple times. I LOVE THIS SERIES. this is the first non 5 star rating I have given it. The Caeco of previous books does not seem to match up with the one presented here. And I REALLY HATE C.A.E.C.O. as a character. She's hurt the MC several times and been untrustworthy and gave up secrets to the government that cost Declan dearly. I've been secretly hoping Omega would take her out permanently. Good try Mr. Conroe, but please leave her out of future books or kill her if you don't mind.

He writes so well!

John Conroe is a wonderful wordsmith. His prose are always on point and this is another example of him backing away from the story and infusing it with with more flavor. I will read anything he writes.

Performance is better in this one.

Mr. Cronin did a much better time narrating this book than the last Demon Accord novel. Because I listen to this whole series, I picture certain individuals by the voice that Mr. Cronin uses.

The novel itself was as enjoyable as Mr. Conroe’s earlier works. An insight into Caeco’s personality was enjoyable. And the CSI like investigations was liken to shows like criminal minds and other procedural shows.
I am interested in the new characters introduced, and look forward to their interaction with main cast members.
