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.
Thought author did a nice job with plot and sub-plot, keeping it simple, uncomplicated and entertaining. Good action, some twists n turns with like-able characters. Throw in some steam, add a little fantasy, maintain solid mil and put some mystery n intrigue and you've got a winner.
