Well, Larry, you've brought the Iron Kingdoms to life AGAIN.

The preceding book, also by Larry Corriea, Into the Storm was GREAT. It was what finally broke down my elitist aversion to tie-in fiction. Granted, I'd read plenty of really crappy tie-in fiction for nerdy things I love (Star Wars, Star Trek, etc.) and you can only get burned so many times before you say enough's enough, I'm done throwing money at this stuff.

These two books are, by far and away, my favorite tie-in fiction ever. Because they aren't about being tie-in. They're about telling great stories that I would read even if I didn't love the setting. The setting DOESN'T sell these books. The story does.

'Into the Wild' is exactly what you're looking for if you want a yarn that is not only fast-paced and entertaining, but clever. I read a lot of books, more than most, and usually I can see reversals and plot twists coming a mile away. Guess what? 'Into the Wild' got me so sucked in I stopped looking. There were MULTIPLE twists I couldn't see coming. Do you know how badly I miss a good twist in my literary life? How bored I've been with the same tired cliches? There was one reversal so brilliant, so smack-you-upside-the-head PERFECT that I laughed out loud with pleasure. I hardly ever get to laugh out loud anymore!

Funny? Yup. Adventure? Yup. True to the source material? Yup. Characters with very real motivations and actions? But of course.

Buy it. And buy the first book too. Among the best dollars I've spent on entertainment in a long time.

While the first Malcontents novel Into the Storm can best be described as The Dirty Dozen set in the anachronistic Steampunk/Magicpunk universe of Iron Kingdoms during one of the major war campaign, this one is more akin to Indiana Jones and the Temple of Dooms with the Storm Knights and Stormclad Jack with all of the excitement of the '40s serials. The previous novel was a pure war adventure story, dealing with leadership and how one grows into the responsibility that comes with it, this one also deals with leadership (on both sides) and the regrets that comes with the outcomes when it's wield.

I would really like to see this one adapted into movie, as it's action are blocked well for that medium as well.

I really enjoyed this, it's well written with good dialog and the action flows. The length is just about right for an extended episode in a shared universe and it's all good fun with bits Correia's trademark humor. This is the second book in a series, but reading the first book isn't necessary, although it does fill in the back story of the characters and explains some of the references.

The Good: This is a great story! It has all the right elements, human conflict, blood thirsty monsters, archaeological finds, and lots of battle. I've never listened to a Larry Correia novel I didn't love, and for the story this one is not any different. If I were just reviewing the book I'd want to give it 6 stars.

Alas, the Bad: The narrator is awful. He is terrible, and the people responsible for allowing this to be sold as a finished product should be very ashamed! My guess is that the first rehearsal was accidentally released. The problem? The characters voices keep changing. Raines has sounded like Acosta, Wilkins (spoiler- Wilkins isn't even in this book), Pangborne, Cleasby, and Thorny. Pangbornes voice changes mid-conversation, and I cannot keep up with who is supposed to be talking.

Just read it, don't listen.

I waivered between three and four stars and finally slipped to three for two reasons. 1) this is not up to the quality of Larry Correia's Monster Hunter series, so he can write better and 2) the price while not greedy is also not cheap for what is essentially very pulp fiction. Almost steam punk, slightly magical world with lots so violence. One fairly competent with a bunch of academics face shapeshifting savages. Violence, magic and death abound.

So far all the "Skull Island Expeditions" stuff I've read has been really good. They are not high art, but they are fun adventure stories. Larry Correia really gives you a sense of verisimilitude when describing life inside a military unit. I recommend reading the first book in the Malcontents series first, but it's not needed. Also familiarity with the Iron Kingdoms/Warmachine world from Privateer Press wouldn't hurt, but there's a good primer in the introduction so you're not totally lost if you're new to this fantasy world.

Loved the story. Corriea covers the gamut of writing styles, steampunk, modern day monster hunters, and swords meet steampunk in this story. I have read all of his books and never been disappointed. This book is loosely based on a game of some sort, never played it, but still love and can follow the story. Corriea manages to cover the back story without being tedious and the info just flows with the story. Read this book, you won't be disappointed!

Fantastic sequel to 'Into the Storm,' the Malcontents continue to use their strengths to puree the enemy or die trying. With their Warjack, a select few of the Malcontents are tasked with keeping an archaeological survey team safe for a week up in the mountains. Most of the trip is by rail, what could go wrong? This book kept me glued to the pages until I finished it. New characters are introduced, old characters return, and a few new critters learn who/what 'Headhunter' is, and not to tick off nine tons of erratic mechanika....
