When journalist Lex Falk gets himself chipped into the brain of a combat soldier, he thinks he has the ultimate scoop: a report from the forbidden front line of a distant planetary war, live to the living rooms of Earth. When the soldier is killed, however, Lex has to take over the body and somehow get himself back to safety once more-- broadcasting all the way.--Provided by publisher.

Coarse Language: Lots. While appropriate and realistic in context some parents may wish to review the book prior to allowing their children to read it.

Abnett has a deft hand with the set up and the action. The combat has a legit feel, as does the political threat, although I personally would have liked to see that side explored a bit more, especially as a denouement after the current ending. I hope there is a sequel.

Excellent book for those interested in war. Whether you agree or disagree with it's application, causes, or outcomes it provides an believeably realistic look from a first person point of view of someone who was not prepared to fight, but required to.

Someday the term "embedded combat correspondant" may be taken to a whole new level.

Falk nodded.

"I know how he feels," he said.
