Army Officer. Fugitive. Sorcerer.

In every nation, people are waking up with magical talents that are sending the world to war. Bringing order to a world gone mad won’t be easy for Oscar Britton in Myke Cole’s mile-a-minute Control Point, winner of the 2013 Compton Crook Award. The Shadow Ops series is the perfect read for fans of Peter V. Brett and Patrick Rothfuss.

Black Hawk Down meets the X-Men… Military fantasy like you’ve never seen it before’ – Peter V. Brett, author of The Desert Spear

All over the world people are ‘coming up latent’ – developing new and terrifying abilities. Untrained and pan­icked, they are summoning storms, raising the dead, and setting every­thing they touch ablaze.

US Army Lieutenant Oscar Britton has always done his duty, even when it means working alongside the feared Supernatural Operations Corps, hunting down and taking out those with newfound magical talents. But when he manifests a rare, startling power of his own and finds himself a marked man, all bets are off.

On the run from his former colleagues, Britton is driven into an underground shadow world, where he is about to learn that magic has changed all the rules he’s ever known … and that his life isn’t the only thing he’s fighting for.
