The planet is called Banshee. The air is unbreathable, the water poisonous. It is the home of the most implacable enemies that humanity, in all its interstellar expansion, has ever encountered.

Felix is a scout in A-team Two. Highly competent, he is the sole survivor of mission after mission. Yet he is a man consumed by fear and hatred. And he is protected not only by his custom-fitted body armor, the culmination of ten thousand years of the armorers’ craft, but also by an odd being which seems to live with him, a cold killing machine he calls “the Engine.”

This bestselling science fiction classic is a story of the horror, the courage, and the aftermath of combat and also of how strength of spirit can be the greatest armor of all.

    " This book switches between two main characters, one of them i loved to read about, the one on the planet killing giant ants like there's no tomorrow, and that other guy....the one who breaks out of prison and becomes part of an experiment to re-live the story this I didn't really care for because it was slow and drawn out, at first I admit I tried to skip this part but as I progressed through the book I became confuse this part became more of a chore than anything else. However the surprise ending is worth reading the book all the way through, and it was a fairly well thought out book, even with it's slow parts it still scores a good review with me because it was a great adventure and extremely unique to anything I've ever read.
