This book, Biohell, was an impulse buy for me. I was in the market for a new book to tide me over until R.A Salvatore released the third book in his Legend of Drizzt Transitions series, before it came out. I saw the cover, read the back blurb and thought to myself, What do I have to lose? Only money, I guessed. I'm a Sci-Fi/Fantasy nerd so books in that spectrum can either offend my sensibilities or intrigue me.

And that's what Biohell is, an intriguing book.

It's a military action thriller with gore, guns, macho B.S. and a heck of a lot of fun. Andy Remic writes in a semi-silly manner, full of curses, comedy, and cynical contemplation of ex-soldiers who've seen too much. In a way, it's slightly satirical, poking fun of itself and the genre, but it's not meant to be read that way. It's not meant to be taken super seriously, though, and if one does, the book tends to make you scratch your head.

Biohell is the latest installment in a series that I've never heard of before, and so, I've only read this one so far. You don't necessarily need to read the others ( think there are like four or so predating this one) but it might help in character development, and certain plot points. The main characters are elite spec-ops sort of guys that've seen it all and been through hell. Now, they have to contend with mutants hopped up on designer drugs that were intended to make the user more beautiful, faster, stronger, etc. There is a layer of intrigue that must be peeled back like an onion to figure out just what exactly is going on before our intrepid heroes succumb to the Biohell around them.

Now, for the skinny:
-the Good: If you like lots of action, gore, sexuality, and swearing, then this is the book for you.

This was one of the best Sci-Fi books I have read in a while. It was action-packed right from the very beginning. It also incorporated very believable war scenes and riveting characters. I have read all of the Combat K novels and enjoyed everyone of them more than the last.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
It seems like some readers/reviewers want to take this author too seriously. "Biohell" is not a serious book and neither was War Machine (Combat-K), first book in this series.

They are rollicking, raunchy, violent irreverent space operas. "Biohell" takes place mostly on The City - an entire planet that in the past practiced unsafe sex (human and alien alike), all types of illegal activities, and was dedicated to pleasure and chaos.

Franco, one of the Combat-K "heroes" from "War Machine," has fallen in loooove and plans on marrying his sweetheart and giving up his perverted lifestyle.

Well, then the fun really starts - junks, zombies, biomods, nanobots, REALLY disgusting descriptions of an eight-foot tall zombiette, world invasions, the Hammer Syndicate, Knuckles and his gang, double and triple crosses, an upgraded Cam, weapons, weapons, and more weapons, AI killers, MICHELLE ma belle.

Are the science facts all correct in the book? I don't know. Did I really care while I was reading? Not so much. I just let myself be swept along in the Combat-K world. I enjoyed the book.

Thanks to the number of 1 star reviews, I almost didn't read this book. Fortunately, I did.

There was a lot of non stop action, funny pre battle banter between Franco and Keenan, new and interesting characters, new tech, and in the last 20% of the book it takes a more serious plot twist which is linked to the first book.

I'm about 150 pages into book 3 now and enjoying it.

I have a feeling that if you are a die hard military sci fi reader, you might not like this series. Perhaps, as one reviewer said, the written English is UK Enlgish, not USA English, so the constant UK slang might seem too fareign for them to connect with.

Should you read this book?

Yes, but not as a stand alone book. It's best if you read book 1 first- War Machine.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I picked up this book at a local library sale, part of a big bag of varied novels I bought for two bucks. I am now searching out the rest of this series, because if they're half as good as this one was, it's money well spent.

First, there's the negatives. The action is fairly tightly paced... sometimes a bit much so... even the most hardened snake-eaters would have had to stop for rest at some point, if only because of flagging reactions, unlike these characters. Remic writes fairly well, but clearly has little to no experience serving in a military unit. If I had served with any of these guys, I'd have fragged them quickly, while they slept, to improve the odds of the rest of my unit surviving anything, even something like getting to chow on time. No joke, it would have been a moral imperative. These characters are insane, undisciplined and stupid.

That said, some of the stunts they pull are so damned funny that my kids were wondering what was wrong with me as I giggled my way through the book.

I'll admit, the name, Biohell, grabbed my attention, and I figured "Why not?" I was unimpressed by the first thirty pages... terribly cliche as the dark, deadly retired military killer brooded on his dead wife and kids... until I realized that that was the joke. Admittedly, the character Franco Haggis really brought that home to me, being so incredibly strange, that I quickly put together that cliche was exactly what this novel was all about. Then it turned from amusing semi-military insanity to a zombie movie gone horribly wrong, and by the time a couple of characters are screaming "The zombies have chainsaws!!! Wait, WE'RE supposed to have the chainsaws!" my diaphragm hurt from how much I was laughing. And it only got funnier from there.
