Part of the Bestselling Series World The Immortal Ops by Mandy M. Roth

Dr. James Hagen thought he’d bid Paranormal Security and Intelligence Agency good riddance nearly ten years back.

This one annoyed me. I skimmed most of it and thought why did the author give this story so many more pages that were filler vs the previous book being so tiny.

What annoyed me - Laney. She is a super annoying TSTL one. I hate her. Her inner thoughts are repetitious, she can't say a sentence without mentioning "the man" out to get us all, and she's stupid. Yeah, yeah, she's some super hacker, but I'm calling idiot savant. Her character is what made me loathe this book, everything else was fine.
3.5 ⭐⭐⭐✨
James Hagen and Laney

2nd book in the Immortal PSI-OPS, James Hagen story

After reading the stories prior to this, I realized that the women are becoming more and more bad ass and crazier ☺ in each book.
It's also nice that we get to meet new characters and can expect more from the series. I like Gus and hopefully get to have his own story and Casey.

James and Lane's story did not disappoint it was intense, action-packed and funny (gotta love Striker and Boomer) can't also wait for their s

So my prediction is turning out to be true, unfortunately. When I begin a series and overlook small flaws or annoyances in the first book, rarely do these go away with subsequent installments.

Authors must be tempted to follow a formula, when it has led to past success. But having the observations and internal monologue of James, as he sorts out his attraction to Laney, track so closely to Duke's from the first book feels much too paint-by-numbers, particularly her talkative bursts during periods

The newest addition to the Immortal Ops universe by Mandy M. Roth is a winner. This book in the series has "the milkshake that brings everyone to the yard. " That was a quote from the book by one kitled, scottish, ginger wolf. ( yeah I may have a team striker shirt in my closet).
In this book we deal with Dr. James Hagen who spent 10 years off the ops team and the grid to deal with a mistake he made as a member of PSI-Ops. He is brought back in to the fold after being rescued and we start with hi

PSI corps takes their turn at finding their mates. James Hagen finds his paranormal match amidst danger and intrigue...with a victim of the infamous asia project. reread today and I still laughed solo hard. Re-read in august, 2017. Still laughed, still cried.
It just keeps getting better. I am not sure which book I want to read next, Act of Submission (PSI Ops 3) which will tell of Boomer's story or Broken Communication (Immortal Outcasts 1) which will tell of Cassie's story.

Act of Surrender is the second title in the PSI Ops series which is part of the connecting Immortal Ops world. James and Laney’s story is simply further proof to me (and should be to you as well) that it doesn’t matter how long a book, a series has been around – when it touches a reader’s imagination when it consumes their reading time to read all the stories to get the full picture… the publication date makes no difference to a great story. I’m making the choice to read

We're deep into connected series but each of these books can be read alone. I think you will get a lot more enjoyment from them if you follow the author's suggested order. At 150 pages, these are short, exciting adventures with a bit of sex and romance thrown in.

I enjoy the connection between the characters. James Hagen was thought to be a traitor and went into hiding. While trying to protect a young supernatural, he was captured and tortured for a year. Now he's back in the PSI fold, trying to

Doctor James Hagen has just been rescued from the one of the Corporations horrible experimental labs and is determined to destroy them. He’s also in contact with an online hacker, GothGirl, trying to find her, hoping she can help them before the Corporation kills her. But ever since he’s been rescued his abilities have been on the fritz and he’s not as powerful nor smart as he was before.

Meanwhile bad guy Bertrand has completely lost it. His self-experimenting has gone berserk, he’s been disowne

Wow! Fantastic Read!

This is my favorite book in this series so far. As always, the characters are so real-to-life they walk off the pages and into my heart. I wouldn't be surprised to find out that they really did exist but as the characters in Ms. Roth's books they make sure that we humans remain ignorant of the things that go bump in the night.

Laney and James have the most awesome date from hell. That doesn't make a lot of sense, but it will once you read the book. And you really want to read

I am SO confused! I keep reading these books out of order, not on purpose of course - who would do that, but it seems to happen regularly. I feel like Gus and Bill, who by the way appear to be NEW characters in this particular installment, which is truly amazing as I've reading about them both forever! Regardless, love the pair and Casey a new addition to the Outcast crew. Act of Surrender is Laney and Jimmy Hagen's novel: how they meet online, two lost souls, "hackers," playing aga

Extremely Enjoyable

Put the words paranormal, shifters, military, mates together and for some authors you have described their series. Not for Ms Roth. She creates incredibly unique characters with humorous banter in the interactions and you just want more to read. Laney or GothGirl is way different from your usual hacker and falls for LabLupus aka Dr James Hagen online. Little do they realize that they’re both trying to take down the Corporation who imprisoned and tortured James for a year until

I like Mandy M Roth as an author but this book dragged. You are two fifths of the way through the book before the two lead characters even meet face to face which would be fine if the story leading up to that was interesting but unfortunately I did not think it was, although you might enjoy it.

There is a lot of repetition throughout but I hope the next book will be better or I may just give up on the series.

Loving the Immortal World series as a whole, but I'm seriously not liking how abruptly the individual stories are ending. Personally, I think $5-$6 is too much for how short these stories are, and I think the author is doing her fans a disservice by charging so much for so little writing. I'm only continuing the series because I'm really interested in seeing how the whole thing wraps up and how theses shifters find their mates.

Laney and James

James a battered wolf shifter that was tortured by The Corporation for over a year starts chatting on line with a woman the PSI Ops thinks is working with the corporation. James is sure Goth girl(Laney) is actually trying to out the corporation because she seeks the corporation is evil. Things go crazy when James and Laney meet for a coffee date. I highly recommend this book and series.

PSI-OPs and the Immortal Ops teams find themselves on the same side trying to sort out the problems created by the company. Who can they trust? They don't know and have found they have been fed lies to for many years. I have not read anything that I have not loved that Mandy as written. Her writing always leaves me wanting more and thinking about the characters long after I have finished the book.

Again a nice change from the man saving the woman, it was more of saving each other and then saving Laney's friends. I especially liked Bill and Gus, this is a good introduction to them and their uniqueness. They are especially good as they don't have supernatural gifts, but gifts of their own. So funny.

Goth girl gets doc wolf Lol. Loving this book full of fun, action and hijinks lol I must read for all shifter fans. Miss Roth has an amazing sense of humor that that just keeps the story funny and still action with lots of hotness to spice it up.

Good read

James and laneys book was one I was looking forward to. Didn’t disappoint and the evil scientists are still being pursued revealing more abused warriors. Recommend the series for pure escapism.

This one was awesome! I'm so glad Hagen found his mate. Laney seems so spunky but sweet even though she has crazy theories. I can't wait to see what happens next.

Fun quick read. Library doesn't have the rest of the series as of 3/6/2019
It felt very short & the ending was abrupt. I wish Mandy Roth went a bit more in depth in their story. ...more
