Shadow Squadron: Elite Infantry by Carl Bowen (Author) and Wilson Tortosa (Illustrator).
(Book received for free for review from Capstone Young Readers.)
Unfortunately this can only be a partial review. It was only after being sent the book that I got the notice that it wasn't available in Kindle format (because there were too many pictures). Thinking that must mean it was a graphic novel, I settled in to read it on my computer.
Turns out Shadow Squadron was a mix of graphic novel and traditional book -- about 200 pages of text and many pages of great art. I can't read a book on my computer; I like being comfortable when I read, plus my iPad screen is a lot easier on my eyes than the computer screen.
For what it's worth, I really liked the art style. The story summary seemed interesting, too:
Lieutenant Commander Cross has served his country with excellence for many years. When his time in the armed forces comes to an end, he is given a job offer he can't refuse: command an elite squad of soldiers tasked with tackling military ops that are blacker than black and far beyond the call of duty.
*Fictional story about current-day military events, situations, and battles
*Full-color chapter books
I'm not counting Shadow Squadron in my yearly count.
