[END OF INTERCEPT]
Private Ranulph Kinny hates military life. He swears his Mongoose—an eight foot-tall powered armor suit—is trying to kill him. Even his sergeant is acting paranoid, invoking the Saints and keeping the whole platoon battle-ready, just in case.
Everything changes when a mysterious broadcast blankets the city and triggers an all-out civil war. Now, Kinny and his power-suited platoon fight for survival as their city crumbles around them.
Writing from expert insight as a career soldier, author Brad Buckmaster weaves an unforgettable tale of military science fiction/action storytelling. A dark future companion novel to Brigador, the isometric mech action game, that conjures that brutal world from the street level. A must for fans of hard military science fiction.
