The Malcontents are back in action! Into the Wild, the new novel from acclaimed author Larry Correia, picks up the story begun in Correia’s first entry in the series, Into the Storm. Now under the leadership of the reluctant Lieutenant Kelvan Cleasby, the Sixth Platoon of Storm Knights has been ordered to accompany an archeological expedition from the Royal Cygnaran University deep into the Wyrmwall Mountains. There, the scholarly team from the university will investigate an ancient site of potentially great historical value while the Malcontents stand around playing bodyguards and wishing for just a little excitement. But what seems a simple enough assignment rapidly turns into a test of the platoon’s survival skills—a seemingly abandoned fort, the lone survivor of a horrifying attack, and a ferociously territorial tribe may be more than even the Malcontents can handle. And even once they know the monsters they face, escape may well be impossible—it’s never as easy to get out as it is to get into the wild.

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