After a terrorist attack on a reservation in Oregon leaves thousands dead, Jack Sigler, call sign King and his Chess Team--Queen, Rook, Bishop and Knight--must protect the only survivor, thirteen year-old Fiona Lane. When a death in the family pulls King away, and the rest of the team is sent on a mission, Fort Bragg is attacked by a strange and overwhelming force. When the dust settles, Fiona is gone.

But the attack is part of a larger offensive. Around the world the last speakers of ancient languages are being systematically exterminated. As they fight to find the mastermind behind the killings, and Fiona, the team is hunted by strange creatures that defy explanation--living statues, genetically modified monsters and walking megaliths--sent by an enemy from their past. If not stopped, he will be able to remake himself, and the world.

Calling on help from old friends and ancient heroes, the team fights their most desperate battle yet, not just to save the world as we know it, but to rescue a little girl who wants nothing more than to call King Dad.

An ancient tower holds the key to unlocking a horrifying secret hidden within mankind's most antiquated languages. If unlocked, the world as we know it will cease to exist.
Jeremy Robinson's third book in the Jack Sigler series is a rocket-powered thriller, combining high adrenaline action, smart science, ancient legends, and stunning locations.

I tried to like this book, I really did, but ...

Band of SpecOps guys who call each other by code names, the leader has a special aircraft and is foster father to a little girl who holds the secret to everything

Sound familiar?

Try the Scarecrow series by Matthew Reilly

I never thought I'd say this, but Reilly writes better than someone, namely Robinson

No one at all trained in Unarmed Combat, while holding a sidearm, would let an antagonist get within arms reach, but the crack "delta" operator does exactly that

when you leave tire marks on the pavement, you do NOT "spew" rubber behind you

both of these within the first 50 pages!! and I could go on and on

The reviewer (I will not call them c"critics" that praised this POS have lost any credibility they may have once held

Gave up after less than 100 pages of 330 odd

Don't waste your time
