Countdown is the last book in what I call Series One of The Shadow Wars. It pretty much wraps up just about everything that's been set up so far, and sets the stage for everything else going forward.
Despite how I felt Rogue Ops Rising came out, (poorly), I feel a bit better about this one. I also think it has one of the more interesting monsters I've managed to put together so far.
Well, let's not keep you waiting. Enzo is on the loose, Drake is out of his mind with grief and rage, and the galaxy at large is about to die. Time to get this show on the road.
As always, go back and read everything else before you read this one. It depends heavily on it.
Before we begin, for convenience's sake, here is a complete list of every Shadow Wars title, including bonus content, in the order in which they are meant to be read. Right now, I'm going through and editing everything, although some of the content needs to be rewritten and/or expanded.
