The colony planet of Eighty-Six looks as dull as all its fellow new worlds to veteran journalist Lex Falk. But when a local squabble starts to turn violent, and the media start getting the runaround from the military high command, his interest is seriously piqued.

Forbidden from approaching the battlezone, he gets himself chipped inside the head of a combat veteran—and uncovers the story of a lifetime. When the soldier is killed, however, Falk must use all his resourcefulness to get safely back home again… and blow the lid off the whole damn thing.

"With a firm grasp of character and a superior ability to convey action (you can almost hear the bullets roaring overhead), Abnett delivers a great, readable science fiction novel and earns his comparisons to an SF Bernard Cornwell.” —Wertzone

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 John | 2/13/2014

    " The action sequences maintain the grit, speed and high quality Abnett has become known for, but the book feels lacking in some areas. The story unfolds well enough, with hints and clues being given as a large conspiracy slowly unfurls. But then it just sort of ends. No real resolution just perfunctory "that's it, shows over." Still worth a read but could have done with perhaps a little bit more in the aftermath department. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jean | 2/9/2014

    " Somewhat disappointing, i expected more. Still trying to find another Armor by Steakley. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ryan Erickson | 1/17/2014

    " I gave this book three stars as it's a little off from my norm and I wasn't able to get into it. In fact, it was a chore to read. Nonetheless I did finish it. Though, as I stated, it was a chore. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Daveb27 | 1/11/2014

    " Good book. Like to read more by this author. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jeremy Schneider | 1/5/2014

    " Didn't get into the book. Might try to finish it another time. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Matthew | 1/2/2014

    " A pretty fast paced military action however the ending just jumps out at you when you aren't expecting it and isn't very satisfying. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 William Clay | 12/29/2013

    " I liked this book. I would read more of Abnett's stuff. He does a good job at creating a future world that is familiar enough but still slightly different. It works well - both enjoyable and believable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jussi | 12/14/2013

    " A bit slow to get going but a faily good after that. Not a book of big ideas but a nice "blockbuster" thrillride. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chris Ingram | 11/30/2013

    " Good solid military sf, in a setting reminiscent of the movie Aliens. But the foes are other humans, corporate greed, state secrets, etc. Seems like a one-off, which was fine by me. I enjoyed it but would not be rushing to read more in the same setting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patrick Todoroff | 11/4/2013

    " Dan Abnett is the reigning champion of Military Sci Fi. Coming hard, fast and solid like a Mk19 mod 3 AGL, this original novel is the latest in a long line of excellent books. Nothing but admiration for his work. Well done. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brian Baird | 9/5/2013

    " I'm on page 3 and I'm laughing my ass off. As far as I can tell from so brief a peek, it's going to be a fun ride with Dan Abnett's novel. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Simkine | 7/29/2013

    " The poor ending ruined this story. Maybe the editor lost the last chapter. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christian | 7/22/2013

    " Enjoyable, if inessential. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chris | 7/2/2013

    " Read the book, the ending seemed rushed, like some limit on pages. But towards the end Dan caught his stride. Look forward to the next in the WarHammer 4 k universe. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mark Clark Jr | 6/9/2013

    " I really enjoyed this one, I'm just hoping there's some kind of sequel to follow up on how the story wrapped up. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kim Conde | 5/6/2013

    " This was a really good book. It explores a new subject in that the main Character was linked to another while in a tank and experienced everything the other person did. I won't go into the plot but it gets quite complex and involved. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Glas | 2/11/2013

    " I thought I'd only like this book a bit; but by the end I loved it. A must read for military / hard SF. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Brad T. | 1/14/2013

    " m'eh. I love this author, hated the book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Derek | 11/16/2012

    " Very clever and very compelling. The first Abnett I've read (apart from his scripts for 2000AD) and I'll be looking out for future ones. Although I don't think I'll bother with the Warhammer, he obviously learned a lot about military kit and engagement - it seemed very realistic from my armchair. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kwing (Mook) | 11/14/2012

    " Reminiscent of the great William Gibson, but without the skill that author displays. I love the premise, but the story bogs down and becomes tedious. The protagonist quests for a truth that is never revealed to the reader. Just ok. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Crispin | 10/15/2012

    " Took along time to get going, but about 1 third of the way in it got going and was good :) Not his best but different at least. Not sure about naming the moon Fred though to be honest. "
