ABOUT THE SERIES

Kristian Clark is an agent with the ESE.

That acronym stands for the Elite Strategy and Enforcement. When it is mentioned to a civilian who admitted not having heard of it before, Clark told him, "We're a new branch of the CSI." Not that that was so much more understandable to him or to we the readers. This is especially try with Clark thinks to himself, "we're also a new branch of both the FBI and the CIA - sort of an all-purpose team, like the Marines." Even more cryptic is the rationalization by Clark later on that "our agency was formed partly to give the government an easy way out in some things." Like I said, cryptic.

In this agency, Clark is one of the main agents. He had been a member of the team some time before the recorded adventures we have to follow him but then left to become a private investigator for a while. Then the ESE came calling and pretty much forced him into coming back into the fold.

The key members of the team of agents in these adventures are, according to these descriptions provided us:

Kristian Clark: Team Leader. Skills include strategy, charisma, (hotness - Deanna Clark), investigation, culinary arts (seriously, I made eggs once! - Agent Clark), hand-to-hand combat, semi-semi photographic memory, helicopter license, marksmanship, lock-picking, and the ability to teleport within and between realities (has a thing for pink-haired women- Smith).

Susan Deanna Clark: Team Medic (raised Catholic. Current denomination unknown even to me- Agent Debian). Skills include medical training, technological prowess, creativity, linguist expertise, disguise, lock-picking, airline license, and martial arts (also is super beautiful, intelligent, charming, funny, and all-around perfect- Clark [Caution: investigation as to whether written under duress or not is still underway]).

Liam: Team Handler. Last name unknown. Skills include inside knowledge of the NEOs, marksmanship, (master of manipulation- Agent Clark) and linguistic skills.

Garret Smith: Team Muscle. Also known as Agent Shadow (only to Liam. Known as Boo only to me- Agent Debian). Skills include physical fitness, hand-to-hand combat, and a degree as a neurosurgeon.

Amelia Debian: Team Con Artist. Skills include deceit, pick-pocketing, flirting (no longer official skill- Agent Smith), acting (heart-stealing- Agent Clark- canceled by Agent Deanna Clark), and disguise.

In the last bit of the description of Kristian Clark is "the ability to teleport within and between realities". This is an important phrase to try to understand something about this series.

Good Lines

- Thought by Clark - "Leave it to the government to make things complicated."

MY COMMENTS

On the good side - I loved her easy way of storytelling that came across wonderfully smooth and cleanly.

On the not so good side - I got a bit confused (okay, more than a bit) by things after a while, like when the whole reality shifting and teleporting started.

I guess I was too grounded in this reality to flow with the story. However, I liked the writing and the characters well enough to go back and give it another try soon. I really am hoping my confusion was more my fault that the author.
