James Howlett, aka Logan, also know as Wolverine is the focus in this spin-off novel of the X-Men series of books that began life in the mid 90s. Up until then the previous books in this series had all been focused on the X-Men as a team but being one of Marvel's best loved characters Wolverine was given his own novel.
I found myself caught in two minds as to whether I liked the cover or not. Wolverine himself is drawn very well and I like the added background. I don't like the length of the wome
When Team X was sent on a mission to retrieve a disk from a pair of defecting KGB agents they ran into competitors shortly after arrival in East-Berlin. The shape-shifting free-lance spy Mystique working for the Mossad, the mutant Interpol officer Sean Cassidy and the Sovjet operative known as the Black Widow are all after the disk too. Years later Mystique turns to Wolverine for help when members of that particular mission are being kidnapped. It's time for Wolverine to discover why and rescue ...more

"He'd have been a fool to take Raven Darkholme at her word, and she knew it. Wolverine had been many things in his long life, but never a fool." Page 28.

This is supposed to be a tense thriller with gratuitous super heroes, but it utterly fails to be tense because of sentences such as those quoted. The second sentence is unnecessary and takes the energy right out of the first. Christopher Golden does this a LOT, it seems on every page. This is the way that children's books are written, not thrill

Nothing special here.

I am a fan of the x-men and it was on the top of the pile

gives some interesting history to the backgrounds of some of the characters
if that is what you are in to

lots of quality kills per minute

it is what it is
I love the psychological depth this book gives to the characters.[return]It keeps pretty close to canon, despite not being canon.[return]A very good read.
I enjoyed this view into Wolverine's history in the CIA, especially the way his story intertwined with so many other familiar characters.
a good quick read. great flash into the world of Wolverine.
