About the Author

Larry Correia is the New York Times best-selling creator of the Monster Hunter contemporary fantasy noir series, as well as breakout urban fantasy series the Grimnoir Chronicles.  Correia is an award-winning competitive shooter, a movie-prop-gun master and an accountant by day – but an urban noir adventure master by night.  He is very bald and lives in Utah.

An Explosive Ordnance Disposal Technician in the US Air Force, Mike Kupari also served six years in the Army National Guard. He grew up in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula and enlisted at the age of seventeen. He has worked as a security contractor with several firms, did a tour in Southwest Asia with a private military company, and is an NRA certified firearms instructor. Mike currently resides in Utah with his iguana.

More About the Author

Larry Correia is hopelessly addicted to two things, guns and B-horror movies. He lists his occupations: gun dealer, firearms instructor, accountant, and writer, and was until recently part-owner of a company specializing in firearms and movie props. He shoots competitively and is a certified concealed weapons instructor. Larry resides in Utah with his very patient wife and family.

Visit him on the Facebook Group, Monster Hunter International, Hunters Unite! or his blog, larrycorreia.wordpress.com.

I was blown away by this book. First off, it's not set in "our world." It's a world just off set of ours. The world's a bit rougher and more cut throat. Most thrillers I've read have been technically accurate but boring or with completely lame characters. Others had great action, but completely unbelievable. This has great characters, great action and very technically competent. Really, the characters are going to make this book. The action alone would make this book a 5 star, but when you actually care about the characters the tension is even more powerful: and let me tell you about the tension. Tense doesn't begin to describe it. These characters are really in peril. As a combat veteran, I appreciated the accuracy of the arms and the use of them. They didn't make the combat unbelievable with jumping sideways with two pistols, but they made it more like the literary equivalent of a Micheal Mann film. (Heat, Collateral, etc Realistic but still amazingly entertaining. Also, the villains are just as hatable as the heroes are likable. Big Eddie is surprisingly threatening and creepy and the government guy (forgot his name) is like that boss that thinks he knows everything and owns you. We've all had one of those. If you don't mind a completely awesome book with amazing characters and brilliant action, then this book is for you!

In 1994 the movie Speed came out with Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock. I remember it well and I loved it. I remember a review that said it had enough things going on for three movies. That 1994 review could fit Dead Six by Larry Correia and Mike Kupari.

Dead Six reads like two books, by two authors one writing each book, and the two are melted into one book. There is the "killer's" book and there is the "thief's book" both of which are happening at the same time and at the same place. Each character keeps getting in the way of the other and this is a pleasure for the reader. Each character is trying to solve a problem, one is overthrowing a government and the other is trying to steal a .... oh I don't know what it was he was trying to steal. Both story lines cross each other and are erily simular in characters in each book and in action.

As for the reader, while this sounds confusing, this is all easy to follow and really keeps you guessing as to what will happen next. The main characters meet and try to kill each other or rather carve each other up. The two "goals" progress and digress and twist and keep you wondering what is going on and who is the "villian?"

There are beheadings, women gutted like a fish, shootings, beatings, revolutions, cons, bombs, tanks, ships, fanatics even show up for a minute or two, and a whole lot of killing. The book is straight forward and the authors play fair by not introducing at the last moment new twists or "out of the blue" shanagicans. As a matter of fact the last 150 pages or so are very satifing for the reader and the "twist" is an "oh yeah" moment.

Correia and Kupari are dead on with their guns and tactics. The battle scenes are believable and at times moving.

I have been a fan of intrigue since I was a kid. But this one takes the cake.
The Story sucks you in, grabs you by the imagination, then puts you through an incredible roller coaster ride of entertaining storyline.
The prose is excellent!
The characters well thought out and uniquely unforgettable!
The best 'good' bad guys put in a world you will never forget!
You come to love 'em and hate 'em!
What a ride!
Mike Kupari and Larry Correia really outdone themselves!
Buy this book or get the eARC version for whatever device you can use.
But get it! It's a keeper!
I give it two winks, a nod, and two thumbs up!
5 out of 5!

Dead Six is a collaborative action-thriller by Monster Hunter writing guru Larry Correia and his Army EOD buddy, Mike Kupari. Larry Correia is currently my favorite author, as well as the leading edge of the urban fantasy market. Any time a Larry Correia book comes out you can sure bet that I will have two copies on order, a signed edition from Uncle Hugo's bookseller for the collection and another from Amazon so that I get to read it the day of release. Dead Six is a first for Larry, in two ways: a first collaboration as well as a first military techno-thriller. The book, while not perfect, was a gripping read that has hooked my interest for later entries in the series.

First things first. Larry and Mike know their stuff. When it comes to shooting these guys know the in's and out's of proper firearm use. I believe both authors shoot competitively. Then throw in Larry's experience as the owner of a gun store, and Mike's army training. So while some of the action sequences may be incredible the action always reads as believable if not entirely realistic. The story itself is broken up into two perspectives. One perspective is told from the ex-mercenary Constantine Michael Valentine, a somewhat jaded young man trying to lead a normal life despite his deadly skill set. The other perspective is that of thief and assassin extraordinaire Lorenzo. Both find themselves neck deep in trouble in the fictional Middle Eastern country of Zubara. For Valentine trouble is the elite black ops counter terrorist group Dead Six. For Lorenzo trouble is infiltrating a terrorist organization for the ultimate heist. Both characters find themselves with opposing objectives and end up clashing, each characters actions having direct or indirect consequences for the other.
