Shadow Ops: Fortress Frontier Book Trailer

The majority of us here at Fantasy-Faction are big Myke Cole fans. Therefore, when Myke dropped us an e-mail and asked if we were interested in getting the exclusive reveal of his UK trailer how could our answer be anything but an emphatic YES!!!

It’s a SOC recruiting video and, as I’m sure you will agree, it’s pretty damned awesome! Certainly, I’d be signing up (if I had magical powers and lived in an alternate universe)!

Fortress Frontier (US cover)For those of you who want more Myke Cole, well I can give him to you! Not the physical Myke Cole I’m afraid, there simply isn’t enough of him to go around. However, news, reviews and interviews: we’ve got them all on Fantasy-Faction this month. A Control Point review, a Fortress Frontier review, an interview with Myke and an article by Myke on the Shadow Ops magic system are already live, but this month we’ll have another two reviews and a further interview with Myke to celebrate Fortress Frontier‘s release.

Also make sure you enter our contest to win a copy of Myke’s first book, Control Point. Just tell us what ability you’d like to come up latent as here!

    Whoever thought of doing the book trailer as a recruitment commercial for SOC is brilliant. Very cool! 🙂

    I’m surprised no one has compared it to Heroes, yet.

    Great trailer. It caught my attention and made me curious about the book.
