Jon Land in his new book, “Black Scorpion book coverBlack Scorpion” The Tyrant Reborn Book Two in the Michael Tiranno The Tyrant series published by Forge Books gives us a new adventure with Michael Tiranno.

From the back cover:  The next adventure of The Seven Sins‘ Michael “The Tyrant” Tiranno, Jon Land’s Black Scorpion is a pulse pounding action-thriller as he takes on a worldwide human trafficking cabal.

Five years have passed since Michael Tiranno saved the city of Las Vegas from a terrorist attack. And now a new enemy has surfaced in Eastern Europe in the form of an all-powerful organization called Black Scorpion. Once a victim of human trafficking himself, the shadowy group’s crazed leader, Vladimir Dracu, has become the mastermind behind the scourge’s infestation on a global scale. And now he’s set his sights on Michael Tiranno for reasons birthed in a painful secret past that have scarred both men.

Already facing a myriad of problems, Michael once more must rise to the challenge of confronting an all-powerful enemy who is exploiting and ravaging innocents all across the globe and has set nothing less than all of America as its new victim. Black Scorpion has also taken the woman Michael loves hostage: Scarlett Swan, a beautiful archaeologist who was following the dangerous trail of the origins of the ancient relic that both defines and empowers Michael, a discovery that could change history and the perception of mankind’s very origins.

With the deck and the odds stacked against him, Michael must come to learn and embrace his true destiny in becoming the Tyrant reborn as a dark knight to triumph over ultimate evil and stop the sting of Black Scorpion from undermining all of the United States and plunging Las Vegas into chaos and anarchy.

Somehow I missed the first book that introduced Michael Tiranno. That is an oversight that I will quickly make up for. However Jon Land is such an exceptional author that, if you are like me and also missed the first book, he has set it up so that you will not feel left out. Michael Tiranno is Bruce Wayne and Batman simultaneously which is quite a feat.  He also has a very dark past. “Black Scorpion” is one huge action-packed thriller practically from page one.  The bad guy is Vladimir Dracu the head of Black Scorpion and he has got it in for Michael. He kidnaps Scarlett and is holding her hostage to get Michael to do his bidding. And Black Scorpion is an international human trafficking cabal coming to America. No need to drink coffee this is pure excitement and more than enough to keep you awake.  Mr. Land obviously likes to tell a good story,and this one is as good as it gets.  You will not be disappointed with “Black Scorpion”.  I am so looking forward to the next adventure with Michael Tiranno.
