Single Father's Book Club: Agent Colt Shore Domino 29

Axel Avian's 'Agent Colt Shore: Domino 29'
Move over, Ian Fleming. There's a new adventure/spy/thriller writer on the scene, and his name is Axel Avian. Avian's version of James Bond 007 is Agent Colt Shore, he's a secret agent for the young adult crowd.

Even if Avian's protagonist, Colt Shore didn't believe he was living in the shadow of an older brother who was killed under unusual circumstances, he'd still be a pretty extraordinary teenager. He attends a special intelligence training academy, F.A.L.C.O.N., located near Springfield, Missouri. When Colt learns that it wasn't his older brother who was killed, but his father, the people who he believed to be his parents are actually his grandparents, and his mother is one of the most respected people at F.A.L.C.O.N., well, Colt's world turns upside down. Perhaps more accurately, the first domino falls.

As a result of his very unique skill set, Colt is pressed into active duty at F.A.L.C.O.N. and is commissioned to protect a popular teen rock band. It's a dream come true for Colt who not only meets some of his musical idols, but he also gets to play concerts, filling in for the band's regular drummer, during a USO tour in the Middle East. Band members, Talya and Thorne Ellis, may be targeted for kidnapping as a result of their journalist mother's support of women's rights in the region.

It's a scientific fact that one domino can topple another half again its size. Starting with a domino that is the size of a piece of Trident chewing gum that upends a domino one and a half times its size, the twenty-ninth domino to fall would be the size of a skyscraper. For Colt, as each of the seemingly small events result in another slightly larger, he finds himself trying to buttress a domino that's the figurative equivalent The Empire State Building and attempting to save his own life and the lives of a baker's dozen school girls.

In all, Avian's first book is an entertaining and wholesome adventure for any young adult reader. There'll be no spoiler here, but I'll just say that I hope for the readers' sake Colt escapes and saves those girls' lives. Then, we can read Axel Avian's next installment in the Agent Colt Shore series.

Learn Colt's fate for yourself; ORDER NOW: Agent Colt Shore: Domino 29.
