ABOUT THE SERIES

       Eric Swan is an agent with Q2.
       The blurb I read for the first recorded adventure stated "Eric Swan can be killed - but he can never die. For a government agent hunting the most dangerous domestic terrorists, that comes in handy." With that as the introduction to these stories, how could I not check it out.
       There is an origin short story available about Swan and it does explain how this Special Forces operative came to be moved from the U.S. military to working for Q2 under the direction and highly critical eye of Quanta. That person is described by Swan as "a short Asian woman" whose "age was hard to pinpoint but her body was lean and strong, her movement graceful, and her eyes intensely sharp. She was either looking at me or through me." The one word that Swan landed on to sum her up was "formidable".
       We learn in this prequel story that Swan comes from a background that contained some "tragic losses" that he refuses to talk about. His life in the military has helped him survive and given him a cadre of compatriots that he enjoys working with but by and large Swan is used to working alone and he is good at it. He is also good at getting the job done which is why Quanta and her Q2 outfit was interested in him and therefore recruited him after an introductory mission to see if he could cut it. He did.
       But now back to the opening blurb and the comment that Swan can be killed but cannot die.
       Explaining much more would very much take away from the pleasure of learning it yourself through reading the adventures. I will leave it with the fact that the technology that Q2 has developed, Swan is able to take part in a good number of harrowing escapades, each of which he will do his best to pull off without loss of his life. If, however, that should prove to be not possible, there is always next time.

MY COMMENTS

       I love a storyline that has a good hook and this one has a great one. I much appreciated the fact that while the author did not slap you in the face with the explanation right away, he also did not play coy with it either. We learn not too far into the first full adventure how it works and Swan gets to consider himself somewhat like Frankenstein. Although in that analogy he is more the Monster than the Doctor.
       The writing is delightful and I really enjoyed the journey the author took me on. Life throws some strange issues at Swan and the man shows a fantastic resilience to handling them, albeit with a respectful amount of carping. I got a hoot out of Quanta and would definitely agree with Swan's use of the word formidable about her.
       This series has some very good sci-fi elements to it but those help set up the spy-fi scenes, not take away from them.
       As you can tell, I liked the series.
