"Damn it, Six! We're following that plane, even if I have to pick you up and throw you after it!"

Third Transmission Review: The Dark Side

Why the cheesy title? You'll soon see why. As of the 29/07/09, Jack Heath has declared Third Transmission released, on his site in the news section.. So, it's finally out. Let me peel this happy-chappy mask off and review the real deal.


Under the action and thrilling sequences of the plot, Third Transmission hides a dark side.

Time Machines. Nuclear Warheads. It wasn't just these threats holding together the fine tapesty of Third Transmission.

Third Transmission includes heart-breaking decisions, full of hope, but eventually crushed. Not only does Jack Heath create a hard place to weave characters out of, he keeps them there until all hope is lost. The pure emotion following these decisions is pain, and shock.

Steel yourself for it. I'll say it again: Be very prepared. Third Transmission won't just take the world by storm, it will take over it.


I just realised I didn't actually say any spoilers, just gave hints. *pats self on back* Well done, self. I should've said ***MAY CONTAIN TRIGGERS***. Oh well.

More pictures!

I found this picture by lucasblahblah off deviantart.com. It's suppoed to be Six, although in my general opinion Six differs a bit from that sketch.

Continued: The Agent Six Fanfic.

Want to see what happens next? Well, here you go.

Written by Tiny Tomo @ Agent Six of Hearts - The Fansite.

Six’s feet plodded along the road back to The Deck. He reached out and tested his right arm with his left. It was limp.
This just doesn’t feel good, he thought. I should hurry so Ace can fix me up sooner. With that intuitive, he started jogging.
Suddenly, Six heard a gunshot. He ducked just in time to miss the bullet. Turning his head, he saw Lerke’s soldiers running after him. Damn. They were back on his trail.
Keeping his head down, he ran swiftly through the streets, dodging civilians. Six heard another bullet whizz past his head, and another. He didn’t have any weapons; he’d lost them in the fall.
Silently cursing his vulnerability, he fell back and dodged into a nearby alley. He kept running.
Six looked back again. Where did they go? he wondered.
His question was answered when a car in fifth gear started speeding up the road towards him.
ChaoSonic soldiers pointed their guns at him, leaning out the window.
Six was superhumanly fast, but he couldn’t outrun this car. Especially not with his limp arm.
He turned around and ran towards the car, dodging bullets the whole way.
Seconds before impact, he jumped into the air, soaring across the bonnet. He landed on the roof with a thunk. Flight time: 4 seconds.
He jogged off the boot and onto the ground. Slightly dazed, he kept running.
Six had already sprinted around the corner towards The Deck when he heard a crash. It must have been the car. In fifth gear, they wouldn’t have had time to break before they hit the building at the end of the alley.
Six had known it was a dead end. But there were small cracks in the walls, and he could have slipped through them to escape.
Putting the soldiers to the back of his mind, he slowed to a jog and headed back to base.

DISCLAIMER: I don't own any of these characters, they are property of Jack Heath.

Excerpt from Third Transmission

Here we are. Let's give you another teasingly short taste.

'Kyntak, what's the ETA on the chopper?'
'Nearly there, Six,' Kyntak said. 'Three minutes.'
'Be careful,' Six said. 'They-'
Boom. He ducked instinctively. It sounded like a distant explosion, like a shell from a tank gun hitting a building. But since there were no tanks or buildings nearby, Six couldn't explain it at first.
Boom! There it was again. Louder, closer. The flurry of activity on the deck stuttered to a halt as the personnel on the Gomorrah noticed the sound and started looking for the source.
Heads turned to the sky in confusion as a third boom pounded from it.
Thunder, Six thought.
There was a thin crackling sound from below. Six looked at his feet, and saw a tiny yellowish blob of moisture on the deck. It bubbled and crackled and steamed, and then it was gone, leaving a small crater in the metal.
Another blob appeared to Six's left. Then another.
Crackle. Hiss.
'Rain!' someone shouted.
And then the commotion on the deck became full-blown panic.

Third Transmission Review

Well, I'm not going to give any spoilers away, in case you were wondering.

Third Transmission: The First Review
By Tiny Tomo @ Agent Six of Hearts - The Fansite.

9/10 stars. This book had an intricately woven plot, and it was full of suspense every step of the way. I couldn't put it down. It was a fast read, and I found myself finishing it within 24 hours.

It had scenes that made me sad, scenes that made me smile. It had scenes that made my heart beat faster. It had had scenes that finally let me click the puzzle pieces together. This book was perfect.

Well, almost. Sure, there were a few scenes that literally made my jaw drop, and a few scenes that made me want to scream at the characters. (Jack Heath, you know who this character is. :D)There were scenes at which I hid my triumphant grin.

Third Transmission is a memorable book with bits of this and that, all neatly sewn together to make an irresistable story. It had time-travel (Sci-fi), a 007 scene (Action), a touching scene (Romance), a rather crazy, scary, scene(Horror)and characters with great personalities.

These characters range from crazy suicidal religious bombers to shameless mad scientists. They range from body-stealing psychopaths to time disoriented inventers. And they range from determined superhuman agents to pitiful superhuman murderers.

I do have constructive criticism, but that will contain spoilers. I'd best not spoil it for you. I'll just say: Be prepared for this book. It gives you one giant shock. It sends your mind different ways, blown by the book's magic. Be prepared. Be very prepared. Third Transmission will take the world by storm.

I got it!

I recieved Third Transmission yesterday afternoon. And I'm already about half way through. I will make a bigger comment when I'm finished.

Third Transmission 200-word Teaser

Found this here.

Six checked his equipment one last time. He had a Parrot FRG semi-automatic pistol, loaded with 17 rubber bullets. He had three more magazines on his belt. He had a miniature cutting torch, with enough fuel for 10 minutes of flame. He had a scuba mask and a small oxygen bottle, in case he needed to sink the ship but was unable to escape. And he had a set of four small knives, suitable for throwing or close combat.

This mission sounded impossible. Search a huge ship, crowded with soldiers, for something very small. Then find it, take it, and escape, all without being spotted, in 45 – he checked his watch – make that 44 minutes.

But that was Six’s life. Less than three weeks ago he’d escaped from the jail of a body-stealing psychopath. He’d driven a tank up a flight of stairs. He’d been hammer-thrown up from a runway to intercept an airborne plane.

Impossible was nothing to Agent Six of Hearts.

Straje Sammers

So, apparently, there's a new character coming in Third Transmission. In the Third Transmission Trailer, Jack does a voice-over over a moving animation of the book. I think that he is pretending to be Sammers. Have a listen yourself, and compare it to the new character description.

Coming Soon... Highly Anticipated...

Third Transmission!! On Jack Heath's blog, I found out that there's going to be a release/party in Sydney and Canberra. Well, I, unfortunately, won't be able to go.

So I'll be awaiting my bookstore to get it on their shelves.

ETA: Actually, I just found out I won a signed copy of Third Transmission for putting the trailer up on my site. Yay!

My First Agent Six Fan Fiction!

This is a quickly done-up short story, commonly known as fanfic. It could probably be used as the first chapter to something.

Written by Tiny Tomo @ Agent Six of Hearts - The Fansite.

Agent Six of Hearts looked fleetingly over the balcony at the 15-story jump to the ground. ChaoSonic soldiers were closing in. He evaded Lerke’s gaze and turned his attention to the twenty or so Eagles pointed at him.
He was going to have to take a risk. Either jump, with the very slim possibility of surviving the act, or let himself be shot. I could give myself up, Six thought, but then they would probably kill me anyway.
“Give up, boy. You have no Kyntak to save you now.” Lerke finally caught Six’s eye, staring him down as if his very glare could kill.
“I don’t need Kyntak.” Six took a deep breath and back flipped over the rails. Lerke’s soldiers fired their guns. Bullets scraped the soles of Six’s sneakers. It was, literally, a close shave.
He didn’t have time to ponder when he could get new shoes. Six fell down, headfirst.
Wind pulled at his hair and blew frost on his face. In the City, winter was even colder than normal, from sea breezes all around. Even the mighty Seawall couldn’t prevent cold air from reaching into the city.
Six closed his eyes as he silently counted the floors by steadily decreasing altitude. Fifteen, fourteen, thirteen…
He heard a shout from above. The voice was Reutini Lerke’s. To Six’s frozen, but keen ears, it sounded like he wanted them to shoot at him as he was falling.
Ten, nine…
Even more guns aimed at him. The clicking sound of bullets being slotted into Eagles reached Six’s hearing.
Seven, six, five…
Just a few more stories. A bullet singed his left shoulder. I’m travelling at 26.6 meters per second; I could grab the railing, but the act would probably break my arms.
Four, three…
Go! Six opened his eyes and saw the nearest railing. He hurriedly flipped himself the right way up and flung his arms towards the building.
A jolt fizzed through his right arm as he grabbed the rails. Six’s superhuman muscles couldn’t bear the impact and snapped without warning.
Quickly, Six thrust his left arm at the rails.
My right arm’s broken but I survived the fall. It’ll have to do until I can get back to Ace.
He hurled himself onto the balcony. Gathering his mind back from the effect of gravitational pull, he stood.
Six surveyed the area. There was a door right in front of him. He could enter the building there.
But what next? He’d be stuck inside the building, with Lerke undoubtedly coming down the stairs with his soldiers.
The ground was just three stories down. I could climb down a level, he thought. If only my arm wasn’t so useless.
Through the glass door, Six could see the Chaosonic henchmen kicking the door to the apartment.
It won’t hold them for long, he thought as they continued to bash the door. I’ll have to stick to my left arm. The menacing sound echoed throughout the room.
Six slipped quietly off the balcony, his cloak barely brushing the rails.

DISCLAIMER: These are not my characters. They are Jack Heath's characters, from the novels The Lab, Remote Control and Third Transmission.

Six's uncanny relation to Michael Jackson

Apparently, MJ's 'peak height was 5 ft 10 in ( 178 cm ).'

That's strange... I recall that was Six's height, too!

ETA: I was reading Jack Heath's blog and well, whaddya know? I see my random fact here, up as a 'fun fact'. Two comments on my fansite by famous people in one day. Woo-hoo!

Six of Hearts Comic

Well, It's not a 'comic' or a 'cartoon', but you catch my drift. Ryu_ka off Deviantart has made this excellent graphic novel on Agent Six. He entered it in the fan fic competition that Jack Heath held just a while ago.Check it out!

I was digging deeper into Jack Heath's website(s) ...

I found this wallpaper that he hadn't bothered putting on his page. Why not? It's here anyway if any of you guys want a new wallpaper. And by the way, on the file, it's called a 'Desert Eagle' which I recall is from Matthew Reilly's books. What happened to the Eagle OI779 (or something like that)?

Recognition is coming!

I got my first comment today, on the eyes debate, as well as finding that a search on google: 'agent six of hearts fansite' came up with this place!

Well, I'm psyched. I don't know about you, but I feel great about this. And now I have more motivation to keep the website going!

Six is...

There are so many fantastic words out there that describe this character. Pick just a few and write them here! (Prizes for the one who can make the longest sentence about Six, with good words)

Six is... a genetically engineered, humour-less, powerful, strong, fast, fantastic, unpredictable deck agent superhuman with the power to blow Chaosonic's mind, Evil's brain, and all the shadows off planet Earth.

Well, I may be exaggerating a little there, but hey-this is a fansite, I can say what I want! (As long as it's positive. :D )
